Empresario's giant green Croc gets delivered, and it looks great, for what it is. Since what it is is a six-foot-tall replica of an ugly shoe balanced on its toe, its intrinsic value is in question. Like, I could see what Stanley Kubrick was trying to do with Eyes Wide Shut, but still I question whether it was worth doing. Same thing here. Anyway, they dress it up nice with decals and fill it up with prop "donated" shoes.
The next morning, Hydra starts setting up the space for their presentation, and their bin looks nice too, if minimalist: a plain rectangular bin with a circular Crocs logo for a deposit door. As they dress it up with their graphics, Vinnie is standing off to one side, not helping and criticizing Piers for sending him over to spy. And when Piers complains about Vinnie's hypocrisy, Vinnie claims credit for Empresario's whole concept, which makes Piers confident that the women are going to lose. They end up in a shouting match, with Vinnie on his high horse about being put in that position and Piers calling Vinnie "a ridiculous individual" and "hypocrite of the year." Vinnie ends up getting kicked out. Again. Vinnie interviews that he's been wanting Piers off the whole time. So...this was part of his plan, then? Piers sends Vinnie off with a mean comment about his belly, and interviews that if Vinnie was really Empresario's creative force as he claimed, it'll be amazing if Hydra doesn't win.
A theme-appropriate shot of a street rat brings us back from the ads. Vinnie runs into Trump in the hallway, and wants to tell his story. "Do it in the board room," is Trump's advice. Because we've got a two-hour episode going here.
Trump and the guys from Crocs go to Empresario's presentation first. Carol does a little spiel, asking them to give up their Crocs. They unveil the giant Croc, and hand out brochures and t-shirts (and Crocs, for some reason). Marilu demonstrates the lever action on the giant Croc that allows people to put their shoes in a little Plexiglas box and then drop them into the bin, like on a mailbox, in a needlessly complicated way. At the end of the presentation, Trump asks Omarosa why she stepped aside to let Carol be the spokesperson. Omarosa talks about the advantage of having a supermodel as their point person. "She's a ten, I'm a nine-and-a-half," Omarosa "jokes" "modestly." Also, Carol is the PM, I feel I should point out. "So far, you're in the lead," one of the Crocs guys says, which isn't going that far out on the limb. After they leave, the women congratulate themselves with a big group hug.
