In the van on the morning of the event, La Toya decides she wants to put a beach on only half of the box and to make the other half a winter theme. She says she came up with it this morning, because you also need sunscreen in the snow, for skiing. Hope and Nene are both annoyed, since this means more work today to make it look like a snow theme. Backbone, on the other hand, is sticking with their theme. Mark, Busey, and Meat Loaf stay at the box and prep it, while the Jo(h)ns head out to dress the models. Back with ASAP, the ladies are wondering how they're going to move these fifty bags of sand. La Toya is rushing around doing everything -- carrying stuff, painting plants gold, and more -- to make sure she wins since the girls want her to fail.
Backbone. Mark's worried because they need more manpower, which is when the Jo(h)ns come back with a crew of people dressed like pirates. Mark puts everyone to work. ASAP. La Toya's worrying because it's getting close to time for the task to open. It's a very hodge-podge mess of a beach and a snow scene. Outside, a couple of the ladies are playing beach volleyball. Don shows up, and La Toya tells him this team doesn't work well together. He understands. He interviews their display is a mess, basically, but brand integration is good. Nene takes off her koala head to tell him that they did a bad job, because it wasn't creative, there was no experience. She thinks the guys have to be awful for them to win.
Backbone's starting up with their pirate display. They do their pirate chant, then talk like pirates as they show folks the gold sirens protecting their Australian Gold. Lil Jon wonders where else you can see Meat Loaf, Mark McGrath, Gary Busey, John Rich, and Lil Jon dressed as pirates, "along with some pirate ladies and a three-foot-tall pirate?" He says it's an experience you never forget, and you'll remember their product. Don shows up, and they decide not to make him walk the plank. Don thinks they've done something creative and energetic, with more direction than the ladies' display, but he's not sure it has the message the executives are looking for.
