It’s the fourth episode of real people “hurt by the recession,” vying for a spot in the Trump empire. Last week James was fired but he ended up with a job at the Attorney General’s office. As winning project manager for the last task, Tyana met with Russell Simmons who gave her business advice and a $10,000 Calvin Klein gift certificate.
This week the teams had to come up with a guerilla-marketing stunt video for Popcorn, Indiana, a popcorn company along with the assistance of improv prankster and viral video star Charlie Todd. The video with the most potential to go viral would win. The project managers were Mahsa for Fortitude and Clint for Octane. Wade had volunteered to be PM last week in the boardroom but since Clint was so eager to be PM for this task he stepped down.
Over at Fortitude Charlie Todd gave advice and the gals decided to do their video in a gym. The theme would be people eating popcorn while working out during lunch. Tyana was causing disruptions again by complaining and annoying everyone on the team. Don Jr. thought Mahsa was in control – but maybe with a bit too much control – over her group.
Over at Octane the men decided to close down Fifth Avenue in front of the Trump building and attack pedestrians with popcorn bags. David was missing because he had to have emergency dental surgery due to eating a really hard bagel(?). Ivanka liked this idea and thought it had “all the elements of a good viral video.”
In the boardroom the videos were reviewed. Fortitude’s was clever but should have gone further. Octane’s was spontaneous but violent. Tyana threw her team under the bus when she said she liked the men’s video better. The winner… Octane and as PM Clint will meet with Steve Forbes. Mahsa brought back Tyana (surprise) and Liza. Both Mahsa and Liza wanted Tyana to be fired because she brought nothing to the task and offered no solutions. Donald Trump agreed and fired Tyana.
Tyana is now back in real estate.
Next week: Teams perform a fashion show task leading to the “most explosive boardroom ever.”
