Trump asks Frank whose concept their terrible video was, "in actuality," and Frank talks pretty, which I always love. Just the sheer concentration to avoid spitting or saying racist things, while speaking in a low, even, classy tone. Used to make me sad and kind of adoring, now it makes me chuckle nastily. Frank prettily says that it was a team effort, with Frank directing and Nicole editing, and that the concept was worked out with Nicole while... something. He lost it. All the pretty verbiage. Nicole says that Frank did a great job directing and inspiring the people, which we know she thinks is a good skill to have, because she's talked about it before. She says Frank "knows how to get things done," which I've always believed. Except for perhaps the respect of his teammates. He never really did nail that one down. Jenn and Derek laugh and clap indiscriminately, because the idea of dignity being something you gain or lose having to do with this game in any way is frankly hilarious. Trump grills Tim about the showmance and Tim whines and acknowledges that he has zero credibility about anything having to do with this contest, and is just immensely charming as usual, and Trump giggles about Tim's negative cred, and Tim says that objectively, of the four, Nicole's the only one to step up as PM, and that in real life she deals with huge amounts of money without blinking. Trump's like, "Actually, those things are correct." He takes it one gratifying extra step, saying like the one statement that puts me on everybody's side at the same time: "She's very capable. And so are you." My heart melted and I bought a t-shirt that said TEAM TIM & NIKKI, but I only wore it for that brief moment, because I'm like allergic to polyblends?
