Clay enthuses about his whole team, and Lisa says Clay is one of the top 2 project managers she's ever worked for, putting him in rarefied company with Her Aubreyness. Lisa also tells Trump that that Dayana "killed it" this week, which obviously impresses Trump, considering. Trump informs the teams that the Macy's execs preferred certain things about the Forte display and certain other things about Unanimous. No one team's display was exactly right.
When asked to assess his team, Arsenio brings up how Teresa ran around in her heels like a champ. This gives Trump an excuse to enthuse about Teresa's tenacity and her hustle. He thinks she's been "underrated" this season, which is so perfectly Trump in that it is based on absolutely nothing that he has witnessed. He does mention that he heard all about Teresa's Real Housewives exploits from Melania (his wife, not Teresa's daughter; Trump won't end up marrying Teresa's daughter for at least another 10-15 years).
Trump has the teams examine each other's work. Forte is impressed (and perhaps a bit shamed?) by Unanimous's "takeaway" (their handout/smell strip combination). Arsenio compliments the print ad, with Dayana and the male model, which gives Aubrey the opportunity to pipe up about THEIR model, Eric Trump. She even kisses Donald's ass by joking that she adjusted Eric's hairline in the silhouette because she's prefers the elder Trump's follicular abomination. Eric the presses Aubrey about the "one-man team" comments, and while she says "my team did not not help," she insists she was responsible for the whole product. Arsenio is reluctant to complain (he really doesn't want to repeat that ugly boardroom scene), but he says he doesn't like being "minimized." He talks about how he looked up the Trump quote for the slogan, but Aubrey quickly says she came up with "trust your instincts" first. It's an odd argument in that you'd think the order of how the slogan was arrived upon would be easy to remember, but neither one of them seems to lay it out that way. Arsenio doesn't entirely do himself a ton of favors when he talks about finding other Trump quotes that he also liked, including one about trusting one's gut (which is actually terrible and doesn't speak well of Arsenio if he liked that for a slogan; "gut" should not be anywhere near a fragrance ad). In assessing the other team's ad, Aubrey sniffs at their traditional approach. Lots of colognes from celebrities and rock stars feature "a hot girl oogling over a guy in a suit," she says. One day I'll get sick of dumb jerks mispronouncing words while they're trying to be awful about something. Not today. Aubrey says her idea was, like Trump, more "forward-thinking."
