Trump asks Jesse if he's holding back. He says no, he hasn't been holding back. He's not a salesman, but he doesn't like to talk and tell everyone how great he is. He'd rather just work the hardest and lead by example. Trump says Jesse's been low-key and under the radar. Jesse says Trump's judging just by what he sees in the boardroom. He's not low-key, and he is a leader, and not afraid to get his hands dirty. Trump asks Joan if she agrees, and she does. She says he has a company with 500 employees. I think it's interesting that Trump trusts Joan so much that he asks her opinion on everyone to the point that she's almost like his Don or Ivanka. (Maybe next season!) Trump asks Joan is she has the stamina, and she tells him she's tap-dancing under the table while she talks to him. He says okay, but Piers was questioning that. She says she's done nothing but face challenges in her life, and nothing will stop her. Ivanka agrees with that, and says that she usually has more energy than the whole team. Trump turns to Annie and says she has to admit Joan's amazing and she should want to be like this. Annie agrees she's incredible, and says she has a lot of respect for her. She hopes she has as much energy as that. Ivanka asks what Joan's strategy would be in the final two if it comes to fund-raising. Joan says she'll make everything happen in her power, and will be on the phone fund-raising like hell.
Trump asks Joan what it means to be in the final two, and she says it means they might be able to get some vans for Gods Love We Deliver. Trump says she's done a great job for that. He asks Jesse what it would mean for him, and he says it would mean a lot. He says these are both professional women, and he has a blue-collar background and still works a blue-collar job. Trump asks why he should keep Jesse over Joan or Annie. Jesse says he loves Joan, but this competition is a lot bigger than her, with a lot of aspects that she doesn't know. She says she can do anything and has done everything that's ever been put in front of her. She says she's 75, and has never failed. Trump says Piers wasn't a fan of Jesse, and asks what he was not seeing in him. Jesse thinks it comes down to the politicking, and asks why he would raise all of the money on the first task. Trump asks if Jesse's saving his big knockout punch for the finals. He asks if Jesse will bring Sandra to the final. Jesse says he doesn't know, but it's a possibility. Trump asks if it bothers Annie that Jesse hasn't raised any money, and she says it does. Ivanka says saving all of your ammunition might put you in a situation where you never get to use it. Trump says Piers didn't get Jesse, and it might take awhile to figure him out. Trump says in one way he respects that Jesse hasn't used his wife, but he's also disappointed. He has a feeling that even in the final, he wouldn't use her, so he fires him. He tells him great job, and Jesse thanks everyone and leaves. Annie gets up to hug him, and he comes over and kisses Joan. Everyone loves Jesse. He interviews that he wanted to do a good job and show what he could do, which he feels he accomplished. He calls himself just "a welder from Long Beach." I love that he sees himself like that.
