New Jersey Housewife Danielle Staub stops by to donate $1,000 to Team Power in the name of exposure. Piers Morgan swings in next to question Team Power on their numbers, which the female celebrities can't be bothered with. Meanwhile, at Plan B's non-shop, a little blonde girl shows up on behalf of T. Boone Pickens. The blonde has a $100,000 check that could buy a lot of strippers.
At the tail end of the challenge, it looks like Brande can't get a hold of one of her largest donors. Will Trace's high-risk strategy pay off? Will anyone be able to get a word in edgewise in the board room?
In the board room, Brande is evaluated as a project manager, and Bret is criticized yet again for returning. Also, it's clear that Piers Morgan and Omarosa either hate each other, or have some kind of repressed sexual tension. Omarosa comes to the board room ready, and this time Bret is her target. The attempt is relatively unsuccessful, though, and it seems like Brande is in the most trouble.
Once attention is shifted to the other team, Penn Jillette proves yet again the most level-headed contestant this show has seen. He notes that Trace's decision to count on the "whales" is not the decision he would have made. Then Gary talks about "humility, a single-minded focus on doing good for everyone, and the making of the meatballs, and the serving of the meatballs." Stephen is in the hot seat for not bringing in any money on this challenge and saving his big donors for when he's project manager.
The attention turns back to Team Power and Piers's criticism of their balloons covering up some of the celebrities' faces on a big photo. It is generally agreed upon, by the judges, that Omarosa is historically unlikable. Dennis Rodman interjects with, "what do you have against this woman? You're obviously a dick, too," to Piers. This is some baggage carrying over from past seasons and I don't care for it.
At least the celebrities are clocking Piers for taking out personal vendettas from past seasons. I'm sure Piers is doing it because he thought it would make for good television, just like his fake feud with Howie Mandel on America's Got Talent. But in reality, it's tacky and we don't really care to see it. It's not about Piers anymore, and he needs to accept that. Claudia says Piers was whining like a woman, which Ivanka points out is derogatory towards women. She can say that to Claudia, but how she has managed to become deaf to her father's comments over the years is beyond me.
