The next morning, more coffee perks. I think coffee is a motif. Stephanie explains that she and Alex were up very early, heading out to the prop shop to pick up their stuff. We see them load up a U-Haul and get out to their spot, where they set up the greens and Stephanie says the whole team is in "full hustle mode." Net Worth, on the other hand, is busy dressing up as clowns. Audrey tells Chris how cute he looks in his clown suit as he -- you guessed it -- complains. And then we enter the weird world of watching Chris...chewing tobacco in his clown suit. "How many clowns do you know who chew tobacco?" Tana asks, very amusingly, in an interview. She imitates Chris asking the kids with a mouthful of chaw which ball they want. What's sad is that there would be kids who would be made to feel right at home by that. You can tell those children from the spit stains on their shoes. Anyway, Chris complains to Tana that all the kids are afraid of him, as Carolyn and HotNotGeorge look on. Chris claims that he is taking the task very seriously, although he allows that some people might not be open to "humbling themselves to looking like fools," and we cut to John who, unlike the rest of the team that's doing customer contact, is in his regular street clothes.
In her own clown outfit in the van, we watch Audrey tell Angie on the Space Communicator that John needs to do the marketing for the venue in the costume. John grabs away the phone from Angie and tells Audrey this: "Audrey, you're an idiot. We're going to win this task in spite of you. I'm not wearing my costume to hand out flyers. It won't matter how I'm dressed. I'm sorry. Thanks for coming out. Have a nice day. We have some lovely parting gifts for you." And there's just no excuse for that shit, either personally or professionally. He has no reason to tell her she's an idiot, given that all she did in that moment was ask him to put on the damn costume to hand out flyers, which makes perfect sense to me. At any rate, she interviews that John obviously still thinks he doesn't have to listen to her or show her any respect. Later, we watch as John -- who is wearing the clown costume now -- complains to Craig about how stupid he feels, and how he can't talk business while wearing a costume. It's funny how the Old West costumes were okay for other people when John was the project manager, isn't it? John appears to try to talk a few kids into visiting their golf course, but he's doing it with a sort of "I'm much too good for this" vibe that I think is killing any possibility that he'd be effective, because it's a mistake to think kids don't see that coming.
