Trump gives us a business tip: It's all about the word "passion," which is right up there with talent and brains. He says that will be key in deciding who wins. This is what we call filler in a bloated two-hour episode.
KOTU's presentation. Clint's the presenter. Jesse thinks the presentation was irrelevant because they didn't do well. He thinks it's time for Clint to go home. The ads are terrible, so I would definitely agree. Athena's presentation. The ladies all wear their Right Guard jerseys in, and Annie presents. Melissa thinks Annie's not a good presenter, because it's stiff and not conversational enough. She thinks if the presentation sucks, you're going to lose. She really is sort of being cheesy. Their tagline is "The only thing I ever need to wear." I think it should have been "The only thing I always need to wear." That makes more sense. The execs meet with Trump. They like both teams's ideas, and go into detail about what they like and don't like. It's very boring: They like KOTU's orange and power stripe on the edge of the pages. They didn't like that they don't tie him to the Knicks in a strong way. They like Athena's shirtless ad, but think it should have been first, not third in the sequence.
With 40 minutes left, we're headed to the boardroom. This must be a doozy. Trump asks Brande how she did with those two tough women. Brande thinks they won. Melissa says she was a good leader and Annie says she and Brande "make a great team." Clint tells Trump if his team wins, they did brilliantly. They did the best they could. Jesse doesn't think his team was much of a team, because Clint didn't utilize Joan and Jesse. If they win, Jesse disagrees. Trump asks what Clint's problem is. Jesse thinks he's too caught up with being the guy with the good idea. He says the hardest thing about being a great leader is knowing what you can't do, and Clint doesn't want to use Jesse even though he owned a magazine. Clint's surprised, and rambles about Jesse. Annie yawns. Trump shuts Clint up and says he doesn't even know what he's saying. He says Jesse wasn't a team player this time, because he wouldn't even help when they asked him to.
