Previously on Here We Are, Face to Face, A Couple of Silver Buffoons: Trump assembled eighteen badly dressed nitwits in New York City and divided them into the male nitwits and the female nitwettes. A forced trade sent Pamela to be Queen of the Boys and Baldford to be King of the Girls. The Boys and Pamela named themselves Mosaic (the name that narrowly won out over "Nail Polish and Kittens"), while the Girls and Baldford named themselves Apex (which defeated "Football and Monster Trucks"). Mosaics and apexes all over the world sighed at finding themselves dragged into all of this ugliness. Trump explained the rules, including the new twist that the PM of a winning team would be exempt from firing the following week if that team found itself in the Boardroom. The first task had the teams creating a toy for Mattel, and while Apex went "vroom vroom" with a remote-controlled car, Mosaic went "crunch, splat" with Cappy the Modular Crab. Maria wanted to choke Baldford. Andy wanted to hit Pamela with a shovel. Protective gear for everyone! Stacie acted a bit oddly, which set tongues wagging all over the sorority house. Apex won the toy task, sending the boys to the very first Boardroom. Pamela took Andy and Rob to the final table -- declining an opportunity to bring an extra person -- and after hearing practically the entire Mosaic team heap scorn on Rob, Trump figured that a wounded gazelle is as tasty as any other kind and fired him. Baldford, of course, won a precious exemption that will prevent him from being fired this week.
Credits. Everybody chair-dance!
S5, Aspiring Corporate Weasel Death Watch. Wes points out to the group that Trump praised Pamela, and "there's no way she's getting fired." John interviews as they wait that he thinks Andy will be fired, because he's just too damn young, as well as not "assertive in a group." As they all mill around waiting, Bradford is wearing...my, is that a newsboy cap? What is that? Gracious. Wes shares with the group that he agrees that it will be Andy, because given the total lack of experience, "he can't run a company." Predict-O-Wes finishes up with: "Rob'll come back. He's going to fire Andy." The door opens, and in come Pamela and Andy. Surprised candidates go to greet Andy, trying to think of something to say other than, "I can't believe you weren't deemed most unworthy!" They settle for nondescript cheering, as Andy pumps his fist for himself. Andy interviews that due to his age and inexperience, he's "a marked man." Eh. I suppose. Marked with the bruises he constantly gets from patting himself on the back, maybe. I mean, considering how nearly unanimously the men ganged up on Rob, the "marked man" thing seems like a tough sell at this point, but what do I know? I went to college in Ohio.
