Sunset. Ding! Time to go in and find out how the task went. But first, the teams are forced to cool their heels in the lobby, because Glasses and No-Glasses are giving the information to Trump about how they think the ads went and who won. Glasses says that artistically, he was impressed with both presentations. But one of them did a better job than the other in understanding the product and selling it. The time-lapse clock on the wall claims that this meeting goes on for, like, an hour, which I can't imagine, and then we see Trump wrapping it up, telling the guys that it sounds like whoever won did so fairly handily. Yes, the guys agreed. No, it wasn't a difficult decision. That Team That Won definitely beat That Other Team. Isn't the suspense just killing you? Don't try to tell me you don't care. Oh, you care. Trump wishes Glasses and No-Glasses well and throws them out.
And now, Glasses and No-Glasses pass the teams on their way out, and then it is time for the teams to enter and face Trump. They go in and sit down. NotCarolyn is looking very angry today, that's for sure. She just doesn't seem like a happy person. Trump tells the candidates that he was just talking to the PlayStation guys, but he's also going to play for them some of the comments from the focus group about their ads. The Magna feedback comes up first. A lady says that she likes the variety, that there's desert and city and stuff. A kid who is not a member of the 18-34 demographic, like, at all, says that the money represents making it and getting to the next stage. A mom, who is also not a male aged 18-34 and whose son isn't either, says that she would buy the game for her son, because it's got the big "E" saying it's rated for Everyone. The clip ends, and despite the fact that the Magna feedback was pretty positive, Net Worth is feeling confident about what's coming up next. "So, you think yours was better?" Trump asks Net Worth. They all nod confidently. Seriously, they all nod so confidently.
The first guy says that if he were driving by, he'd think it was "just another nice mural." Tana flinches visibly. Most painful of all, the next guy says, "It's the stereotypical view of what Harlem looks like to some people, and not in reality what it is." The next guy says that the art is nice, but it doesn't make him interested in the game. The tape stops. Trump turns to Tara and points out that the idea of the task was to sell the game, right? Trump breaks it to Net Worth that the Sony PlayStation guys just didn't think the salesmanship they needed to see was present in the ad. So at last, Magna has won its second task. Trump tells them that their reward will be advertising-related, in that they will be meeting with "the greatest photographer in the world," Patrick Demarchelier. And you can tell he's the best ever, because he shoots the covers of big magazines like Esquire. Hm. The guy gets $60,000 to $100,000 for a portrait, and for their reward, he'll be taking a portrait of each of them. Now that is a worthwhile reward, in my opinion. It certainly beats a damn picnic on Trump's lawn or swooping around in a helicopter trying not to barf up the champagne. Trump congratulates Alex on the win and his exemption next week. Net Worth, on the other hand, is heading for the Boardroom. Dun-dun-dun!
