Carolyn and George watch, bemused, as the candidates demonstrate a complete lack of shame. Is this show always this demeaning? ["The why of it is kind of complicated, but: yes." -- Sars] I mean, they're all wearing business suits and the women are in heels, and they're having to run all over this golf course. It's tacky. Some of the women nab golf carts, while one of the men shouts to find the highest vantage point to search. This is kind of cool because the teams are already working together, using different strategies as a group. Chris remains at the head of the pack, and the editing shows a dead heat between him and Rebecca (I think) which was probably not that close. Most of the candidates who catch up after that seem to be women. All the men high-five anyway. Felisha, who's the "explainer" candidate in this segment, explains that this win is an advantage for the men, but the women remain optimistic.
After a title card reading Can't We All Just Get Along?, Trump tells us the basic truth of you have to get along with people or you'll fail. God, no wonder he's such a success. Not to mention his seventeen error-free marriages. "Let's just see how that plays out," he says, and you know something crazy's going to happen.
In the shuttle, Markus talks a lot because he can't freaking shut up, but the essential truth of his dull and unending platitudes gets him nominated for PM. He immediately pisses off Chris, and I'd guess everybody else, by shrinking from the opportunity because he's a gasbag but also a wuss, but not even Chris mentions the really awful thing he does next, which is playing it out long enough that he can act like the whole team is fucking begging him to lead them, all, "Fine, fine. I'll do it!" He's so toast. They are going to rip his ass to shreds and he'll never even know they've done it. I want to slap his face.
"Native New Yorkers" Tiny Brian and Fake-Hipster Josh fly in the chopper, talking of Sephora and locations. Josh explains that one location was in a relatively affluent area, while the other was in "Spanish Harlem," and thus less attractive. At the Chelsea location, Josh immediately charms the Bally's manager with a firm handshake, and they get down to business, examining the client base and demographics and wondering about the proper marketing strategy.
On the women's shuttle, Kristi pretty much puts herself out there, like the opposite of Markus (we'll see later how that's not precisely true), saying she's a star athlete and would do a good job on this task. Because they're still thinking like humans and not piranha, everyone's gracious about it. Felisha explains the lack of stress that went into the decision. On the bus, Marshawn hypes them about how they've definitely got a better concept than the men possibly could, and then in interview tells us that the location was depressing until they got inside and saw how many people were working out there. Nobody says this explicitly, but basically: the women are going to first canvass the members for pricing info, then market to the neighborhood, while the men are pretty much going to stay exclusively in the gym itself.
