Boardroom. Trump's waiting when the four arrive. He tells them they're all stars, talented, smart, cunning, emotional people. He says they're all very different people, who have all done fantastically well. He says his three winners came up with a consensus, and he relies on them very strongly. Trump asks Rich who he'd pick to be in the final two, and Rich says himself (duh) and Marlee, because she's raised $1 million. Lil Jon says he'd pick himself (not as duh) and John Rich. Marlee says she'd pick herself (duh) and John Rich, who has the resources to handle stress, fundraising and intelligence. Meat Loaf says he'd choose himself (duh) and John Rich. Wow. Go John Rich. Trump tells Lil Jon that he fires people for not picking themselves, and his advisers hated Lil Jon's answer when he didn't choose himself to be in the final. So he fires Lil Jon, who post-interviews that making it this far was amazing and he's happy. He has no regrets.
Back in the boardroom, Trump asks Rich how he feels that his friend and teammate from the beginning is gone. Rich says he's proud of him for raising money for his charity and for breaking down a stereotype. Everyone in the room agrees. Trump tells them he thinks they're all outstanding, but he has to fire one more of them right now. He wants them each to say why he should choose them. Rich says he came to the show to raise as much money as humanly possible for his charity. He says his career has been about building up himself and this show gives him the opportunity to use that on behalf of St. Jude's, which is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Marlee: She thanks him for the honor of being on the show, because she's gotten to represent herself in a good light. She says he can do anything except hear. She says she's learned a great deal here and is eager to learn more, and she knows this can only help more and more people. I thought Trump would choose her, but now I'm not as sure, because ... was that an answer? Finally, Meat Loaf: He says he's here because of Painted Turtle. When he agreed to do the show, he says, he put himself in Trump's shoes and tried to attack the show as Trump himself would. He says he was determined to give it everything he had. Trump says that the judges thought they were all fantastic and that Meat Loaf was exceptional, but they didn't like that he was so emotional. Trump says his emotions are both good and bad. He asks him to teach him to cry, which might be good for his image. Trump says his advisers didn't recommend Meat Loaf, but he can overrule them. He doesn't, however, so he fires Meat Loaf. In his post-interview, he says he is emotional but this game is also emotional and you need it to get this far. He says his experience on the show has been amazing, since he won more than $200,000 for his charity.
