Obviously, Aubrey is drama-queen gold, and Trump wants Dayana to bring in the Miss Universe girls for at least another week, so this elimination is an easy one to call. Aubrey still says she'd fire Dayana and even sticks up for Patricia's contributions. Don yips about how they're judging THIS task (which ... it's not at all clear that that is the case on this show). Ivanka encourages Dayana to take it personally and fire back at her teammates. Instead, Dayana makes a great case for Aubrey's wonky creative vision, at which point Aubrey takes credit for Dayana and Debbie's previous wins. "You cannot fire creative people for being creative," Aubrey stresses, really parroting Lisa's lines there. It's faulty logic like whoa, too. Creative people get fired all the time for crappy creativity.
Patricia makes her case as the most resourceful one on the team, which is dubious but whatever. Then Don Jr. grossly crows about getting Team Venezuela to fracture when Dayana nods at his statement that Patricia was the one who highlighted "Pomtini" over Crystal Light in the branding. You keep sowing seeds of dissention among the brown folks, Don. Hold on to that seat in the ivory tower a little while longer. Dayana again makes a great point that Aubrey's leadership allowed too many branding options (Pomtini, un-forbidden fruits, garden of Crystal Delights, et cetera), but Trump has a one-track mind. He badgers Patricia into admitting she made a printing mistake, then fires her. After the women leave, Trump says he's amazed that people can be nice to one another after ripping each other apart for his amusement. In her exit interview, Patricia doesn't say much of interest. She kind of took the Tia leaving-with-my-dignity route too.
Next week: Reege! Tribe swap! Teresa vs. Debbie!
