Trump asks Maria what she thinks of Ivana's leadership. Maria thinks that Ivana could have been stronger. He then asks Stacie about what she, as a restaurant owner, thinks of the job Ivana did. Stacie earns forty points with me for using the actual, real word "disorganized" in describing Ivana's approach. Go figure! "I don't feel like she really took control of the team," Stacie says. Ivana, who apparently didn't see Stacie practically all day, insists that Stacie "required a lot of supervision." Eh? Ivana tries to tell the story about Stacie calling for the temps, but she doesn't know how to tell it properly, so she never gets to the point. Stacie, instead, breaks in by pointing out that she sold more than anyone on the team. Everyone starts in all pick-a-little talk-a-little about how she did not EITHER sell the most. Sandy finally says that they "can't pinpoint" who sold the most, but they're all just sure that it couldn't have been Stacie. Trump asks Sandy whether Stacie was more of a liability than Ivana. "Absolutely, 100 percent," Sandy says, striking fear into the hearts of everyone who ever was tormented by precisely that type of cheerleader. "I think you're very smart, Sandy. If I was Ivana, I would not pick you," Trump says. Totally failing to recognize the backhanded compliment, Sandy says, "Thank you."
Stacie tries to defend herself, explaining about the fact that she's become the chosen target, partly because she's "an independent person." Trump reminds her that you can't choose to be an entirely independent person when you have to work with a team to accomplish certain things. She stares. Trump asks Jennifer M. how she thinks Stacie did with selling, and Jennifer says she did well. "If we were selling ice cream again, I would want her on my team." But who would she want on her team more, Ivana or Stacie? Oh, Ivana. This is such an obvious setup that there's no way it's fooling Trump. "If you were me," Trump asks Jennifer, "who would you fire?" "Based on the history, Stacie," Jennifer says. Sandy proceeds to toss Stacie on the heap of coals, as does every other person on the team except Stacie herself, who puts up Ivana.
