Trump comments that the women are all looking pretty cocky because they think they're going to do well, but he reminds them that the women last year only excelled at first, not forever. He says, however, that he wants to see the (tired, oh so tired) gender dynamic play out with a new group, so he's decided to split the teams up boy-girl again. The rules are the same about the competition and the tasks, except that this year, if you're the project manager one week and your team goes to the Boardroom next week, you're exempt. It brings up the very real prospect, it seems to me, of something that wasn't really on the table last year, and that's sabotaging your team. If you were the PM last week and you're exempt this week, you might very well sandbag your team if you thought someone you disliked could go. (For instance, consider how badly some of the women wanted to get rid of Tammy last year.) On the other hand, though, it does, as Trump says, create an incentive to step up and be PM. Trump reminds them all that as talented as they are, only one of them can get the job. So there, punks! Several of them smile tightly. He dismisses them, and as they leave, Andy interviews -- while standing next to a mighty girly display of purple flowers, I must say -- that he wants to spend a lot of time with Trump, but not in the Boardroom. Where others have professions, by the way, Andy is listed as "Recent Harvard Graduate," and I just want to point out that that is not a profession. That is a status, like "Just Ate Dinner."
