Star shows up to shoot a video of Tracy, who she says will be their special comedy guest. She videos him talking about when he used to make fun of her on Saturday Night Live. Tracy says Star's a good friend, so he's doing this to repay her for being a good sport about him portraying her on SNL.
NeNe gets in a cab somewhere in New York when Trump calls her. He tells her he's never called anybody, but he's calling her because he thinks she has great ability and should not quit. She tells him that he accommodated Star when he has seven people left. She's not going to stay and put up with that. He tells her that quitting would be stupid after making it this far. Back in their war room, they keep wondering where she is. Then La Toya gets a text that NeNe quit for good. They're not happy about it. She tells them she can't stay because of Star, and Rich points out to his team that she's let Star win by running her off. Lil Jon thinks it's "not a good look" to go from the losing team to the winning team, and then quit.
Both teams show up at Gotham Comedy Club to audition comedians for their show. Montage of really lame stand-up comedy. There doesn't seem to be any debating about who gets which comedians. They each choose three and take off. Back in the ASAP war room, Meat Loaf's donor calls are starting to come in: $20,000, $25,000, etc. Marlee congratulates him, but he says John Rich scares the hell out of him. Then it dawns on Meat Loaf that if his team loses, all this money he's raising will go to La Toya's charity, which he's sure is a great charity, but it's not his.
Backbone war room. La Toya's calling people, but not letting her team know how much money she's raised, so they don't know what to think. She keeps making calls and asking for money, even though she says it's hard for her. She settles for $1,000 from the Hilton family, which Rich thinks is ridiculous. He says the Jacksons are connected to every major entity on Earth, so she's going to have to call people she's not comfortable calling.
