Because Marlee raised the most money, Trump tells her to choose music or sports, and she chooses the Harlem Globetrotters. Rich thinks that's crazy of her to give him music, since he's a musician. She interviews that she knows it seems like a huge advantage for Rich, but she knows what she's doing. Rich gets first choice, and takes Lil Jon. Marlee chooses Meat Loaf because he is the '70s. She tells him not to cry, and he promises. Rich chooses Mark. Marlee chooses Hatch. Rich chooses Star, leaving La Toya with Marlee. Trump says Don and Ivanka will be his advisers over the next three days as they work their asses off for 7Up.
1970s montage as we cut to Marlee's team, where Meat Loaf says the biggest things in the '70s were the Globetrotters, disco, and Stayin' Alive. Marlee says, "And Meat Loaf." Marlee says they basically have to create the 7Up design today, shoot the commercial tomorrow, and create an event the third day. I think I'd start on the event on Day One, so you can make sure to get everything you need. But maybe that's just me. Meat Loaf starts talking about the commercial, and Marlee says to focus on the design today. La Toya interviews this is her first time working with Meat Loaf, who is everywhere, all over the place. He's pushing to be in a fairy suit in the commercial as La Toya interviews, "What the hell are you saying?" She giggles about it. Hatch tries to bring them back to task. Marlee's ideas for a theme, "Feel the pop" or "Celebrate the pop." Hatch is concerned about Marlee, who he hasn't worked with before. He says she wanted ideas, which morphed into people just talking about whatever, and not sticking to the design portion of the task.
1980s montage (including a much younger Trump) brings us to Rich's team. Star asks Rich if he'd like an all-over schedule or a day-by-day. He wants day-by-day, and she tells him to give him about thirty minutes. Rich feels like he has a perfect team: Lil Jon will direct the commercial. Star will handle logistics. Mark is a creative guy. They come up with a theme: "7Up Retro: Still keeping it real." Rich says he knows when a hook's going to work, and this one is going to.
