Bill's next question is for Andy. He's a nationally ranked debate champion. Why so quiet at the presentation? Trump puts in that he's pretty quiet in the Boardrooms, too. Andy nods, and then he says that when you're in debate, you learn not only when to talk, but when to just listen, and in fact, he thinks that's part of what went wrong on the task -- too much yapping, no actual communication. "Very nice answer," Trump says, and Andy smiles at the table. Oh, Andy. You're like the friend's little brother you always hope will stop being an ass and become cute and charming. Trump offers Wes the opportunity to bring either two people or the whole team to the final table. Having probably heard what happened to Chris last week when he released one person, Wes chooses to bring the entire team to the end, as they all failed together.
As the team waits in the lobby, Trump asks Carolyn what she thinks of Wes as a leader, and she says that he's "very sharp," but he's not a good leader and "can't delegate." Bill agrees that "Wes cannot control the troops." He says that in addition to all of the organizational mishaps, a fight broke out that lasted for half an hour, and Wes didn't put a stop to it. Carolyn adds, though, that Maria doesn't work well with anybody, and Sandy is kind of not doing a whole lot. Bill opines that Sandy is being "underutilized," and then Trump tells Bill that he's also being "underutilized" and should get back to his pretend job in Chicago as the guy "in charge" of that big building. Poor Boyfriend Bill. Will the humiliations never cease?
Robin sends everybody back in. They all sit. Trump asks Maria if Wes is a bad leader. "Definitely," she says. And then he turns to Andy, who we know basically likes Wes. "Wes, lousy leader? Andy?" "Yes. Yes," Andy says, a little sadly, I think. Wes asks to defend himself. "You better start moving quickly," Trump says with a head shake. Wes says he tried several times to speed up the process, and that when he did, Maria yelled in his face and told him to back off. Carolyn seems to be disturbed by this indeed, but tells Wes that anybody who treated her like that would be fired. The thing is that I don't think Wes really had the choice of firing Maria. I guess he could take her off the task, but...still. Bill, more clearly, suggests that in that situation, you at least have to "put her on the bench." Wes says that he wanted to, but he didn't think they could just give up 25 percent of the team. "My major mistake here was giving Maria too much leeway," he says. And pretending to like her jacket, I think.
