New York night porn. The elevator doors open, and the women walk toward the Boardroom. Inside, they meet up with Carolyn and George, and then Trump joins them. Remarkably, Trump is wearing a very tame striped tie. He's getting so corporate, Donald Trump. As soon as he comes in, Trump starts picking on Pamela. He brings up her education at Harvard and Wharton, and points out that this is another loss for her. "We tied," Pamela says. Oh, I suspect that is a misstep. Trump is not going to want to hear that. He insists that they did not tie, they lost by $10, though he admits that that isn't very much. He asked her what happened, and rather than answer the question, which is what she ought to do, she repeats that to her, it's not a loss. It's a tie. I don't think that was such a terrible thing to do the first time, because they're never going to see such a close result again, probably, but it's a very bad idea that she returns to it the second time. George jumps right in. He tells her in a very harsh tone that if you are bidding on a building, and he missed the bid by $10, they wouldn't get the building. So to him, it's ridiculous to say they tied. Of course, I would love to see the last bid that George lost by $10, but that's not really the point. I understand what he's saying, and she made a very bad decision by pushing it, but she's also right that for all intents and purposes, the teams performed the same. Stacy also smirks right here, which makes me want to hit her even more than usual, and makes me want to agree with Pamela.
Asked for her opinion, Jen says that she thinks they priced the item too high. She says she was uncomfortable going over $19.99. Trump asks who set the price, and Jen fingers Pamela. Asked whether she agrees that they ultimately prices the product too high, Pamela says no. In fact, she thinks that the price was too low. Interestingly, as the Eagle-Eyed Forum Posters have pointed out, if they had priced the sponges two or three cents higher, they would've won. It does seem unlikely that they would actually have lost any sales from a three-cent difference in price, so Pamela probably has an argument, if you keep it to a strictly within-the-game context. A disbelieving Carolyn, however, asks Pamela where she would have set the price if she believes that where they had it was too low. Pamela says she would have gone to one dollar per bar, which would have set it at $30. Carolyn insists that that's far too much, and if they had only priced the product correctly they would have "blown the men away." Of course, one could also argue that it's possible that had the men priced their product correctly, they would've blown the women away. Because I think Raj was probably right, and the men probably priced that product too high as well.
