Debbie is PISSED afterward, which makes sense, as she's the Melissa Rivers of this season. She refuses to hug Teresa (good call), and then signs off with this impeccable exit line: "Mr. Trump can't fire me from being Debbie Gibson." Boom.
Dee says he thinks Teresa will get fired for not bringing Aubrey back, which is a statement that is blinding in its obvious, gleaming truth, but Aubrey knows a spotlight when she sees it, so she makes a big ol' production about how Dee and the boys just want to see her gone and they should just admit it. God, this one. What a nightmare. Again, she should totally win this season. Arsenio interviews to my point, saying Aubrey plays the game well, but it's clear none of the guys have any use for Aubrey. When the boardroom survivor return, Aubrey squeals like an idiot when she sees Teresa, then takes like eight seconds to realize that it's Debbie, not Dayana, who is gone. Lisa is chagrined that these two complete idiots are who have returned to her team. Dayana confirms to the group that Aubrey would have gone had she been chosen, then slams Teresa for not making a good boardroom decision. Dayana is smug as hell, and I guess it's partly deserved so whatever.
Trump gathers the teams at E 54th St. rec center. The women have been on a losing streak, so he's mixing up the teams: Teresa and Aubrey join the men, while Lou, Penn and Dee join the women. So, for reference sake:
New Forte: Lisa, Dayana, Penn, Dee, Lou
New Unanimous: Aubrey, Teresa, Arsenio, Clay, Paul
Arsenio dreads having Aubrey on his team, while Lou pledges to "tolerate" the new women on his team, which seems to be more of a Lou-ism than a statement of actual malice. Poor Lisa is still stuck with Dayana, and now she's got useless Lou added to the package, so she's not thrilled.
On to the task, presented by the fine folks at Walgreens: They want the teams to promote their "better marketing through disingenuous promotion of health" initiative "Walk with Walgreens." Blah, blah, encourage people to walk 30 minutes a day, log on to the web site, get rewards points, et cetera. The teams have to create a live interactive health segment to promote to a live audience, and also redesign the membership kit. They'll be judged by the Walgreens folks as well as Biggest Loser (and Days of our Lives, though that's less pertinent to the task) star Alison Sweeney. Also, Eric Trump is a judge this week instead of Ivanka. Which means that in addition to the reptilian grin of Don Jr., we're going to be subject to ol' Kool-Aid Mouth Trump as well. The genetic dispersal of the Trump progeny is so fascinating. Ivanka really just got everything and left scraps and recessive traits for her brothers. And those qualities will get passed on to the next generation, because the Trump bros have money and are thus guaranteed to procreate. This is all going into my book Occupy Wall-Eyed Street: How America's Obscene Wealthy Class Is Making Us an Uglier Nation. Anyway, Lou and Arsenio step up as project managers, and Trump asks Lou to do some push-up for fitness. And since it's been at least three minutes since anyone paid attention to her, Aubrey volunteers to do some as well.
