Credits. Dollar bills, y'all.
This evening's skyline porn opens alongside the Chrysler Building (I think), as we stare at a few lights and taxis before learning that the lobby of Trump Tower is open to the public from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM. After that, it's only for self-centered megalomaniacs, which explains why Trump and all of the contestants are welcome. We see the door of S5 ("RESIDENT ACCESS ONLY!"), and then we head inside for the ACWDW, where Wes is napping and Chris is...grinding pepper onto a pan of asparagus, I believe. He wouldn't be the first guy to drown his sorrows in green vegetables. Jen M. is tippy-tapping away on the computer, while Maria scrounges in the fridge for something without any calories or taste. And what's in the fridge? Orange juice, beer, asparagus (hey, out of sequence!), olives, chocolate syrup...and Maria just doesn't seem to know what she wants. She strikes me as the kind of girl who would want her beer served in a glass, unless there were a guy around who she believed would find it charmingly tomboyish of her to drink from a bottle, not that she could achieve "tomboyish" with Band-Aids on her knees and pockets full of frogs, despite her haircut. Andy and Jen M. have a chat in which he asks her whether Trump seemed to be leaning in any direction as of when she left. She says that she thinks it's going to be a tough call, because it kept coming back to Raj being the project manager. Which I'm not sure makes it a tough call unless you think "tough" means "not the way I want it to go," which she probably does. Ultimately, when Andy asks who Jen thinks will go home, she names Ivana, meaning that if you've been thinking Jen was really sharp and perceptive, you can think again, because that was never, ever going to happen. In an interview seemingly taking place in the bathroom in order to get that unique echo and the look of unscrubbed tile, Jen informs us that because Ivana doesn't offer very much and is "disruptive," she hopes Ivana won't be back.
The suite door opens. Ivana enters, followed by Kevin. "Ivana's back?" Jen says quietly to Andy, who's peeking around the corner. "Yep," he says. Jen makes a face, because she didn't get her way, and she hates that. A little later in the bedroom, though, Andy greets Ivana with a low-five, tells her it's good to see her back, and says, "There's no doubt. You can't build half a house and have the project manager not go. It's not even a question." And I agree with him, basically. Ivana complains in an interview that as of the team's return, they felt very divided, given (among other things) Chris's pronouncement that he thinks the team totally sucks. Oh, and by the way, in this interview, Ivana is wearing a lime green tank top that reads, "I am the BOSS," because she hasn't inspired enough public animosity yet. She reminds us that Chris, the King of Negativity, who is currently eating his chicken and asparagus in the kitchen, is set to be their project manager for the upcoming task. The rest of the group gathers around the kitchen table as Chris explains how he was made project manager after complaining to Trump about the way the team "has not gelled." "Sink or swim," Andy says with a small smile. "Sink or swim," Chris agrees. Somewhere, Swim looks around like, "Don't look at me, man, I'm going to the movies."
