The next morning -- no Rhonaphone, no preliminaries, nothing -- we see the sunrise, and then New York is moving all speedy and time-lapse-like, and the candidates are streaming out of Trump Tower. They head over to these offices where there appears to be a big sign that says "Marcraft MAG Apparel Group," but I can't find anything anywhere on the entire internet to support the hypothesis that such a place exists, so maybe it's a pretend sign. Anyway, inside, Trump is talking to some bald guys in suits who are lecturing him about fabrics. The candidates come in, and Trump is saying "The product is great" and "You'd better make it successful," and so I guess this is...Trump's clothing place or something? Oh my God, you guys. I think we are inside Trump's brain. Okay, that was totally scary. Anyway, Trump welcomes the candidates by introducing this week's NotGeorge, a woman named Michelle Scarborough. She's one of Trump's in-house attorneys, and Trump says, "Don't let her looks fool you -- she's very, very tough." I'm sure Carolyn appreciates Trump reminding you that as a general rule, the really ass-kicking women have faces like dachshunds. That's why he doesn't let Melania balance the checkbook.
Trump tells the candidates that they are indeed "in the studios of the new Trump Collection." He says it's a line of "very luxury clothing." You would think that even if Trump had, like, a twenty-word vocabulary, he could deploy that phrase without biffing it, wouldn't you? He announces that in this week's task, the teams will be developing a line of clothing for American Eagle. Such an old-school TWoP shout-out, people. At AE, they'll work with some designers to create "wearable technology clothing." And what is wearable technology clothing? Well, that's where you have clothes that are specially created to hold various electronic doodads. Bren makes a face like he just ate a piece of spoiled meat, so I'm not sure what his problem is. Maybe he's not a doodad kind of guy. ["Maybe, like me, he thinks that maybe the kids today could just make do with existing pockets. I mean, come on." -- Sars] Trump then hands each team a Visa card with $5,000 on it, and the purpose of the Visa card is to go out and buy $5,000 worth of gizmos to work with. Are you kidding me? What the hell? They're going to spend $10,000 of Trump's money on iPods and fancy-ass cell phones just as inspiration for design purposes? I totally wish they had given them little mock-ups made of cardboard and washers. But at any rate, Trump has apparently decided he truly has money to burn, so the credit cards are handed over. Once they've designed their clothes, they'll do a presentation for American Eagle that shows off their nifty clothes. Whichever team gives the better presentation of wearable technology clothing will win; the other team will go to the Boardroom. And Bren is exempt, so don't think you're getting rid of his weaselly ass soon.
