This season on All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,
14 legends of the boardroom return to New York City.
Rock star and Twisted Sister front man - Dee Snider.
Playmate of the year - Brande Roderick.
Country star and Celebrity Apprentice runner-up -
I didn't come up here to just dig around,
I came up here to win, so I expect it to be a war of attrition.
Actress, host and author - Lisa Rinna.
Model and television host - Claudia Jordan.
The Apprentice original All-Star - Omarosa.
-My brawls are legendary.
I ain't going nowhere!
-I'm going to teach you about leadership,
I'm going to do whatever it takes to be here in the end.
Actor, author and entrepreneur - Stephen Baldwin.
Rock star and previous winner
of The Celebrity Apprentice - Bret Michaels.
NBA Hall of Famer and bad boy - Dennis Rodman.
Now here is the new improved and going forward Dennis Rodman.
The real Dennis is a very solid guy, but then he gets crazy with alcohol.
Hey, everyone gets a second chance, so this is my second chance,
I'm taking advantage of it.
Star of Taxi and bestselling author - Marilu Henner.
DJ artist, rap star and entrepreneur - Lil John.
Academy award nominated actor - Gary Busey.
Everyone that I see carries a rainbow around their shoulder.
Master illusionist and Vegas superstar - Penn Jillette,
and entertainment icon - La Toya Jackson.
Last week, Celebrity Apprentice winner Piers Morgan returned as a
boardroom advisor and renewed his feud with arch nemesis Omarosa...
It's really heart-warming to see such a delightful creature.
-Your mamma should know.
-I'm on this side this time.
Who cares? Donald makes the ultimate decision, don't get it twisted,
this is not CNN.
..and Mr Trump got down to business,
giving the All-Stars their first task.
You're going to be making meatballs.
The one that does the best job selling is going to be the winner.
Dollar, dollar bill.
On Plan B, project manager Trace Adkins risked everything
by taking an unorthodox approach.
I don't even know that this thing needs to be open
for public business.
My plan is to just get big cheques.
On Power, Omarosa set her sights on the only returning winner
of The Celebrity Apprentice, Bret Michaels...
It would be a moment of privilege
to take out the only winner in the game.
..and Trace Adkins found a clever way to deal
with his former rival, Piers Morgan.
-I told Gary to just distract him as long as he could.
The meatballs are lined up like this.
-Then put them in here.
On the day of sales, both teams raised big money.
-Two 10,000 cheques.
But in the boardroom, Stephen Baldwin admitted
to holding back his donors.
You're saving it all for yourself if you become project manager.
-Despite Stephen's withholding...
You raised over 670,000 for your charity.
Thank you, sir.
-..Trace's risky approach paid off.
-Congratulations, my brother.
And left to face The Donald, Omarosa went for the kill.
Tell him how much you raised.
I don't know exactly because it was the wolf in charge of the henhouse.
In the end, Mr Trump decided that Bret
had already been given his chance.
I'm back here as a fighter, I'm back here as a winner.
But, Bret, you've been a winner, you are a winner, you're great.
Bret, you're fired.
Oh, my God, the longer this takes, the more I think it's Bret.
It's Bret. It's Bret.
But you think it's Brande? I'll bet you 5.
-Guys, we're back. THEY CHEER
Everyone's happy, what a nice reception!
The vibe coming back in the room actually was amazing
and I thought it was really nice that people were supportive of me.
I feel like I had to fight tooth and nail to stay.
I knew it was going to be hard, and I think that Donald
really appreciates that, and he appreciates the fight in me.
I wasn't going to back down and be fired.
Y'all were in there a long ass time.
-Because I kept having to defend myself with them.
The whole time, it was me defending myself with them.
Come, tell us what happened.
Bret got fired because
Mr Trump felt that he was a winner, he won already.
Why would he come back to the game?
You called that from first day.
-Y'all are going to listen to Lady L?
I'm actually kind of in shock that my wish came true.
That the only winner to participate in this game
is gone on the first task.
-It's over now.
Tomorrow's challenge, they're going to come up with
-something crazy, so get ready.
-I'm looking forward to it.
-Oh, my gosh!
I hated to lose Bret, a great guy, a great player, a champion.
Tough one. OK, you ready?
you're going to get on what many people consider to be the greatest
private aeroplane anywhere in the world.
A Boeing 757, my plane.
I like a private jet.
You're going to fly down to Florida, Universal Orlando Resort.
You're going to be given a task there.
Now, Trace, I understand you're not going to be with us - that's bad.
-Where are you going to be?
-I have to go get on a ship,
I booked a cruise over a year ago, Blake Shelton and myself.
You will not be on this task,
you will be well represented by your team, right?
I firmly believe that, yes.
OK, right now, pick your project managers.
-Who're they going to be?
-What's the task, though?
How are you going to step up if you don't know the task?
-You take your sack in your hand.
-Yeah, watch this.
Guys, I don't know what the challenge is,
but I have spent a tonne of time at Universal.
I love that place. I know it like the back of my hand.
-OK. Do it.
-I'm ready to do it.
-You got it.
This time out, I'm playing for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
I was on Broadway for a few months a couple of years ago
and gained a connection to the community
and the importance of this cause.
AIDS has not been cured.
There's still a lot of work to be done.
Who else is a project manager?
Who's going to be your project manager?
-You don't want to do it.
-I want to raise money for Michael's charity,
-it means a lot to me.
-So you want to go?
-I really want to raise money...
-OK, for Michaels charity? Excellent.
I am playing for my late fiancee, Michael Clarke Duncan,
for his favourite charity, the Sue Duncan Children's Centre.
I can't even express to you
how important it is for me to win this task.
What it would mean to just celebrate Michael's legacy.
So it's going to be Dee and Omarosa.
With Omarosa as project manager, I don't think it's going to be smooth
sailing, let's just put it that way.
She's already backstabbed everybody, and we're only into the second task.
Man, it's going to be rough.
It could get really heavy.
So we've just got to, no matter what, keep it together.
MUSIC: For The Love Of Money by The O'Jays
Good morning, welcome aboard.
How you doing?
Good morning guys. Good morning.
I feel like Michelle Obama.
If I had a jet like that,
there would be, like, eight, nine, ten girls in the damn thing.
Just moving it and having a good time and dancing,
-doing this, doing that,
-You kidding me?
-Trump ain't playing.
Trump don't play.
Well, you know like when you go and fly
with another airline, commercial,
those are like 747s.
Mr Trump has his own 757.
Because he's Mr Trump.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking,
I'd like to welcome you aboard Mr Trump's Boeing 757.
Please turn your attention to the big screen TV.
Mr Trump has a message for you.
Good morning, everyone.
You'll be travelling, as you know,
to Universal Orlando Resort in beautiful Florida.
For your task this week, both teams will create a photo experience.
You'll have access to Universal's theme parks, where you can
capture really amazing photographs.
"Teams, here is your task," he always does this with his hands,
I don't know what this is.
Anyway, I remember a couple of seasons ago, the teams had to do a
3-D photo interactive experience for Harry Potter.
So I kind of figured it was going to kind of be like that,
so immediately I had some ideas pop into my head.
Now, you're going to be judged by the following criteria -
creativity of your photo experience,
integration of Universal's marketing campaign
and guest experience.
Dawn and Eric will be my boardroom advisers and will meet you
at Universal Orlando Resort.
The winning project manager will receive 20,000 for their charity.
The losing team will meet me in the boardroom
where someone will be, sadly, fired.
Go out and do a great job.
If my team-mates are supportive, if they play a straight,
clear, strategic game, I'll play straight,
clear and strategic with them.
If they try to come at me,
then I'll have to go back at them with everything that I have.
You don't ever have to worry about me backstabbing you.
I'll come from the front.
Right now, everybody on my team is in Orlando,
and I'm in New York City,
and today is a fulfilment of the reason that I came to play
this game - to present a cheque to the people here
at the New York office of the American Red Cross.
I'm Sam Kille. Thank you so much for coming to visit us today.
Sam, I'm very pleased to be here.
This cause is very personal to me.
We lost our home last June to a fire.
It was a total loss.
The Red Cross, they were there to take care of my family when I wasn't
able to be there. I'm a man that tries to repay my debts.
Well, Sam wanted me to meet you guys.
He said that you've got a story to tell...
-..probably kind of like mine.
It was a Tuesday morning, and I took Katie to school,
and I came back home to a full-on fire.
I mean, everything was gone.
Everything. Within 60 minutes, the Red Cross, they were there.
You're so courageous.
I know that the Red Cross has been a blessing to you,
and has been to me and my family,
and I want to make sure that the Red Cross is there
for more people. So, Sam, I want to give you a 670,000 cheque.
That is tremendous. Thank you very much.
And thank you, Angelina.
-On behalf of the entire American Red Cross,
and all of our volunteers, thank you very much.
This is the reason that I am here.
This is the reason that we are all here -
to be able to give back to people that help other people.
You can come back to New York.
All right, all right.
So going into the next task, I'll be gone,
but I really do seriously believe we have the best team,
and we'll prove that going forward.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking.
Welcome to Orlando, Florida.
Who's bag is this?
I've got mine, brother.
Y'all, we're moving to the right.
I am so excited to be in Orlando.
Mr Trump informed us that the task would be to create
this 3-D interactive photo experience that captured
the Universal Orlando Resort's new marketing campaign.
-Look at our space!
When we got into our war room,
our first order of business was to check out the space,
and I was given 12ft to create kind of like a photo booth experience for
the guest, and what's more fun than going into a photo both with your
friends and taking pictures?
I want to run this project as if we are an ad agency
hired by Universal Orlando,
which means that we work in a team environment.
Everybody contributes equally.
Omarosa stepped up to be project manager, so the rest of the team,
we knew we'd have to win.
Because she can throw any and every last one of us under the bus.
You have to think that when you're working with her,
cos she's good at that.
I'm Omarosa, project manager for Team Power.
Welcome. The Universal executives arrived, Dawn and Alice,
and they came to, of course, give us more specifics about this
photo experience that they wanted us to create.
We'd like for you to create
a 3-D photo experience that will represent
all that Universal Orlando Resort has to offer.
We want you to actually go out into our parks and capture images of you
and our guests experiencing the exhilarating things
that make Universal Orlando unique.
So what questions do you have for us?
Mr Rodman has a question for you all.
Omarosa is a no prisoners type of game player.
She was like, "And Dennis has a question."
Dennis was like, "Really, I do? Really? I do?"
As far as everything, what you've got on the display right here,
I don't see nobody that's famous on these posters,
that people are interacting with.
I think Dennis felt a little put on the spot,
but he eventually asked a question.
And actually, it was a good question.
I think what Mr Rodman is asking is,
do you incorporate celebrities into your advertising campaigns?
We currently don't have celebrities actually involved in the advertising
and the reason for that, you know, the characters are the stars.
Right. So what questions do you have for us?
First of all, I've been here between 50 and 100 times with my family.
-So you're familiar!
-But now we need some more specifics answered.
And what do you think people like to do when they come here to take
-pictures? Is that a very popular thing?
-It certainly is popular.
It's the moments where the son and the dad come off the ride
and high-five together to show
that it really is an experience where families can connect.
It's about memories, yes.
When we had a meeting with the executives,
one of the things she kept talking about was making some kind of a
memorable experience for families and for people who come to the park.
And I thought, great,
I love creating memorable experiences for people.
-Thanks very much, ladies.
-You're going to have fun out there.
We have space to create four different experiences.
You can create three big ones, three nice ones.
-I'm thinking three nice ones.
And listen. We can actually have an arch that you won't see from
-Like you're going from one world to the other.
-And then turn around...
-Then you're in this world.
Then you go through the little things.
And then you're in Despicable... I love it.
I settled on the decision to create three unique experiences.
Lil Jon came up with a brilliant idea to enhance that idea of
the ability to move through each of those particular rooms.
I want someone to stay with me.
Then the four of you all can go out and do pictures.
I need to stay spot on with these deadlines
and all the moving pieces of this.
We had to incorporate pictures into our experience,
so I decided to keep Dennis with me, and I wanted Lil Jon, Claudia,
Brande and La Toya to go out and capture the photos as well as bring
back the different stuffed animals and the props that we needed.
Well, we still need to know what we're going to get.
Harry Potter, Despicable Me,
and we have to decide for the third one for us.
We don't have a clear definition
of what we're going to do for the middle.
We don't know what it is yet.
We know we've just got Despicable Me and we've got Harry Potter.
And we've got to go off and do pictures,
so hopefully by the time we get back,
she has a concrete, complete idea.
I'm of the philosophy there are no bad ideas,
just ideas that work and ideas that don't.
But every time we do any tasks,
they say you didn't use your celebrity enough.
You're a celebrity, you're a celebrity, you're a celebrity.
I would love to have cut-outs of all six of us on there,
people could get in and pose, that's 3-D.
That's incorporating celebrity.
I wanted this 3-D experience to be a celebrity-driven experience,
to engage the people visually with cut-outs of the team members,
and drive home Universal Studio's Orlando message.
But cut-outs, every single video store has those.
A picture that you'd really keep would be a picture that would pick
something impossible that doesn't look Photoshop-y.
That's a great idea. You could do something here,
what's called a Spidora allusion.
You just run 45 degree-angled mirrors.
People can get behind them. And you can float just their heads.
What's around a floating head to make it make any kind of sense?
Well, also these cats here could bang that out in no time.
They've probably got the stuff in their shop.
The fabricators were the same people that built
the Penn & Teller haunted house at Universal.
And they did a mirror gag, they know everything.
So it was almost like having my crew. So it was a complete gimme.
Someone can put their head up on a tray,
and you have a tray with no body that you're seeing underneath.
Wow. Penn Jillette. magician, genius, humorous, high IQ.
He is dynamite, the way he puts it together.
This was beautiful.
The head is here. There's nothing under here.
If we have, like, half of something, people aren't going to like that.
-What are we doing?
-We don't know.
-Let's not burn too much time here.
Dee Snider is the project manager.
Dee is a super smart guy.
But he kind of started to get sucked into Penn's illusion.
I would be cutting bait here, because you're running out of time.
-We have two choices.
We can, oh... Wait a second. Wait, wait. Four is a problem.
Wait, do we know where we're going?
Omarosa sent Lil Jon, myself,
Brande, and La Toya Jackson out into the park.
-Where's my money, trick?
-Here we go.
We had to take pictures
and buy a bunch of stuff to decorate our photo experience.
But we were leaving not knowing what Omarosa's total vision was.
Run, Forest, run!
It was so chaotic running around taking pictures.
I could never picture Omarosa running through the theme park.
She had it very easy.
She didn't realise what we were doing out there.
-She has no clue.
I don't want her to give us any excuses.
Dude, any man with three women shopping all day,
his feet going to damn hurt.
You're going to be tired!
Y'all not going to lose me, I've got the money.
Stop it! We were racing against the clock.
We were running like crazy.
We didn't stop. We were supposed to go get a bunch of different stuff,
so we got what we could.
We've got three minutes to get out of here.
Omarosa, she said get me stuff from Despicable Me and Harry Potter.
That's all she said. I wrote it down in my notes.
She didn't come up with a third area.
She only gave us two areas.
If we don't cover it, she's going to blame us.
We are all basically on pins and needles,
walking on eggshells because we don't want to mess up.
We are all trying to do our best!
Because we know that Omarosa is Queen Boardroom,
and she will fight the hell out of somebody in that boardroom.
We know she doesn't play in the boardroom, so we've got to win.
What are you feeling, Dee? What is your gut telling you?
Well, we've got big ideas,
but we don't have the trimmings that go with it.
The floating head, we're hung up on that
because we can't get the idea of why it's floating,
where it's floating.
Right now we haven't got another thing on the list.
Give me another thing on the list and then shoot those down.
When we got the task,
Penn immediately latched onto incorporating a magic trick,
and he had some really creative, clever ideas.
But if it doesn't connect with the marketing campaign in any way,
-In the house!
-Hi, my name is Penn.
You guys know Spidora? You know the Spidora illusion?
We're going to do a disembodied head. You dig?
Penn's ideas just seemed so labour intensive and I felt like,
"What are we going to do with this thing?"
What is going to be our experience?
I was excited about the idea of a floating head,
but I thought we are never going to pull this off.
Some of us have to get out there and start shooting.
We have to split up into two, and we've got to have pictures.
But we need an idea before we start shooting just randomly,
and then we come back and we don't know what we've shot.
The clock is running. We need to get out there, get some photographs.
Some of these photographs may play into
what we do with our presentation,
but I'm also hoping to get the inspiration from these photographs.
Nice camera. Who else is good with a camera?
-I can do a camera.
-I don't get it.
-There's only three buttons you need to know.
Hit the silver one. On top.
-Now you're ready to take a picture.
-To take a picture with...?
-Now you let it...
-Wait a minute, I didn't take that picture.
-Maybe you did.
-OK, you sure you know how to...?
-I mean, I know you've got an eye, but it's...
I've never used a camera like this.
Well, one of us will have to use it. We'll all figure it out.
Gary is nuts. OK, Gary is just Mr Crazy Man.
He's distracting and you always have to be managing him in some way.
He's like having a jack-in-the-box with you
and you never know when it's going to pop up,
and then how you're going to put it back down when you need to.
I mean, very dear, very sweet, but so irritating.
-You've got the camera, Gary?
Hi. Welcome. I'm Omarosa, project manager for Team Power.
-Hi, I'm Shaun.
-This is my colleague, Mr Rodman.
Listen, we've come up with some brilliant innovative ideas.
-After the team split, we got to meet with our fabrication team.
The fabrication team were responsible for actually
implementing and executing my vision.
We've come up with an idea to create three unique experiences.
They're going to start out walking into Harry Potter's castle.
You're walking out of Despicable Me's house.
-You get me?
Also, on top of that, that iconic Universal globe...
This is our top. Orlando is under it.
Spider-Man up high on a perch,
because he's over you like this or like that.
Where are you going to get the Spider-Man from?
-You want us to make that?
I decided to make the centrepiece of my creative the Spider-Man theme.
The team was out riding rides and eating cotton candy
and taking pictures, and I was left with just Dennis.
Basically, I was on my own.
So, I heard y'all are the best.
-Can you do it?
-That's a lot.
The globe concerns me. That's a big globe.
If you want it this big.
I know. As I was going through the design with the fabricators,
I could see in their faces that they thought that I was really,
really pushing it. My design was quite ambitious,
but I wanted to go big.
-I want Spider-Man.
-You want a three-dimensional figure?
Can we foam him?
-The foam isn't going to hold up.
-Too much graphics.
Too much for them to do in that sort of time.
Guess what, though. Let's push, Dennis.
-Let's not settle.
-That's too much.
-It won't be finished, though.
Girl, you can't do it.
They tell you, they work in this damn park, you can't do it
like that. This ain't going to work. If we lose, it ain't my fault.
I can tell you that right now. It ain't my damn fault.
Do you realise this isn't just Celebrity Apprentice?
This is All-Stars!
I want to push it to the limit, even to the wire.
Stand right here, the two of you, and turn like this and go,
-bite your fingers like you're scared.
I want to take a picture of that globe.
-OK, here we go.
-OK, stand away.
Once we got out of the park, we spread out all over the place.
Even though we still hadn't answered the question
what we were going to do. Certainly I was concerned,
but we're all pretty bright people,
so I thought we'd come up with something.
Let's take a picture with the Minion.
Put your hands up, girls. Good.
Dee sends myself, Marilu and Stephen out to go and take the
pictures in the park.
These are my Minions. Get out, get out!
Team Power came upon us, and I was very territorial.
Like it's so dumb, I know, what's wrong with me?
I have Minionitis.
Me, Pat and Gary, raising all kinds of holy hell,
stop at the gift shop and we loaded up on the merch.
Well, who better to do Harry Potter than our resident magician,
Penn Jillette? Of course, he's a freakin' Sasquatch to begin with,
he's got too pick a hat that's three foot tall,
so now he's like nine feet tall.
You weren't tall enough before.
Cat in the Hat. Straight ahead. Ah!
All right, not so scary, more like you're having fun.
The fun comes with a dinner when working with me.
F-U-N stands for finally understanding nothing.
Because when you have nothing on your mind,
everything you do will be extremely fun.
I can't find the damn thing.
I can't find it.
Hi, everybody, how are you doing?
Running really, really hard.
You all have to drop everything and look at what we did.
So the task was to create an interactive 3D photo experience, OK.
Omarosa had sent Lil Jon, myself, Brande and La Toya Jackson
out into the park to get as many photographs of
ourselves experiencing the park.
So, a film strip at the top, film strip at the bottom,
your pictures will go across to the film strip.
The first experience is the Harry Potter,
the second is the Spider-Man,
the third is the Despicable.
We didn't know nothing about Spider-Man.
So we went into the park and we see that Omarosa has begun to implement
two of the things we agreed on, the Despicable Me and the Harry Potter,
but now we see the centrepiece is Spider-Man.
I'm like, OK, clearly we've been working on this for a while.
Why are we just finding this out now, last minute?
OK, you guys, I just saw some Spider-Man stuff.
You have the Spider-Man shirt?
No, there are Spider-Man sweatshirts, hats, cups.
Did you buy any? I wanted you to go over and get...
We went over to the Spider-Man ride,
and over there they didn't have that,
so this is just like sweaters and stuff, it's not really...
I would have taken anything.
We had like two minutes and we took the picture.
Omarosa basically gave us these vague instructions,
so that if we go into the boardroom she can say,
"Oh, well, that was the responsibility of La Toya or Brande
"or Claudia or Jon."
That's basically how she works.
The two thing she said was...
"Despicable Me," and she said, "Get Harry Potter."
Actually, the middle wasn't set.
Omarasa, she's definitely cunning, she's strategic, she's...
You just don't really...
You really can't take what she says at face value.
I know I wanted Spider-Man,
and I wish we would've got some Spider-Man stuff.
We're back. We got some stuff you're not going to believe.
-I couldn't wait, what are you talking about? My hero.
After I get back from the park, my head's clearer now,
and I have a much clearer picture of what we need to do.
I'm just feeling like magic shots are problematic.
I'm thinking we get six great pictures, cut them out,
they said they can do them overnight.
I mean, it's not brilliant, but with celebrity...
The focus of my whole presentation is going to be the celebrities.
When Penn brought in his magic ideas,
I was trying to figure out how to incorporate them into a theme of the
park and the marketing message, but, like,
where do the celebrities come in?
Each one of us is a character, and we get some logos and stuff up here.
And that's what we go with.
-So, you know, that's fine.
-I'm just feeling like...
Yes, we've run out of time.
Is there anything we can do that's, like, different, though?
I think we should've spent a little more time brainstorming.
Celebrity cut-outs was safe, but I wanted something a little more 3D.
Penn, I'm thinking of abandoning the magic tricks
and going with the cut-outs.
Although we can also discuss how to do the back,
what colours to paint the background and stuff like that.
It's just as simple as making soup.
Dee decided to go with cut-outs of each of us
in costumes from the park.
It's very clearly not my first choice.
Penn, we're going to shoot against a white background
to make their cut-out easier.
I have seen life-size cut-outs in malls.
I've seen them everywhere.
-And, yes, magic.
Oh, that's beautiful.
That, to me, is not really an amusement park experience,
it's over the top.
Give me more like tough Shrek, yes. Because Shrek can get tough.
I love how everybody is playing along.
I want to do happy Shrek.
All right, happy Shrek. Hey, Shrek, where's the Donkey?
Done, that's everybody.
Now that we have the concept, it's not that it is difficult to
accomplish, it's actually a pretty simple idea.
But we have a really limited window of time.
Go on that. Colour wise,
you want to see the pictures of what we're wearing?
Can you smile?
We chewed up the time thinking of ideas that didn't work out,
so we're up against a clock,
there's a deadline, we've got a lot to do.
No matter what you say, no matter what you do, no matter how you feel,
it's always up to you, you can't go wrong with a Cat in the Hat.
We need some more ammo.
You might as well do it, you're tall. You can go all the way up.
Look at our experience, I'm so excited.
There's so much to do in one little box.
So the task was that we had to create
this 3D interactive photo experience.
Brande, can you figure out how we can type those things up and
-distribute them to the team?
This task isn't hard for me because I am a visionary and a leader.
There's a lot left to get done, but I believe in the concept,
and I believe in the timeframe that I've mapped out.
It's going to get done.
-We're running out of time.
-So we've got to figure out
what we're going to do with the Spider-Man.
-Let's talk about it.
-So here's your cut-out...
-..for your poster.
OK, so the 3D stuff probably isn't going to happen.
Why is that? You told me you could get it done, you told me...
I'm telling you right now I'm about to freak out because you set me up
if I can't get this done.
With Omarosa being project manager,
somebody is going to get a little tongue lashing.
If this is going to be your centrepiece...
That's my centrepiece.
..then that's what we'll focus on, but something else has got to go.
Where can we cut time?
On the exterior on both sides.
No, I want to keep that, so where else can we cut?
You tell me.
Here these guys are working so hard, they're going to bust their butt and
stay up all night long, and she wigged out on them.
I mean, you just don't treat people that way.
Do you understand that you put me in a position with the centrepiece of
my project, when now you're telling me you can't do it?
No, I'm telling you we can, but then we've got to give somewhere else.
My idea was cut-outs
of all six of us,
representing different elements of the park,
but I also wanted information on the backdrop,
about the marketing campaign.
Which of your phrases are you feeling strong about?
Unforgettable family fun that lasts forever.
Or maybe family fun that lasts forever?
Unforgettable family fun that lasts forever, that's nice.
All right, let me see...
I was working with the fabricators,
trying to create what this background was going to be,
and I put Marilu and Lisa Rinna in charge of the slogans.
I'm feeling things are very good, and we've got it under control.
Even though it's like 3D cut-outs, whatever...
..there's nothing too fancy about it.
I like that.
Stephen Baldwin comes over to me and whispers in my ear,
"Yes, it's a really good idea, I really like that."
Why are you whispering this to me? Are you trying to mislead me?
Are you trying to protect yourself so you can't be blamed?
I'll finish that in a second.
The fact that I had to worry about that while I was doing my project
was an added pressure that I did not need to have, and moving forward,
I did not want that on my team.
So, boys, I have total faith in you guys.
Why? Because you're the only guys I have.
-out of this Universal logo.
And go from there, hope for the best.
I'm a bit frustrated that that is a blank wall and there's nothing 3D on
it yet. It's supposed to be 3D.
We've spent too much time on a concept that isn't going to work,
it's too bad. I was shocked when he got back and that was it.
We can clearly see that that's white, blank white,
and I don't have a vision
of what it's going to look like in the morning,
and I don't exactly know what I'm going to do in the morning.
And I'm going to pray a lot tonight because it's white!
Oh, where's... Our globe isn't painted yet.
So when we show up at our spot,
the globe is not done,
it just looks barren.
Maybe we've got to paint it.
We're going to lose, this looks terrible.
Whoever is not going to the store,
I need you over here because we've got to get this globe done.
And then we have to lose two players because they've got to go to the
store and get more Spider-Man stuff because we have no Spider-Man stuff.
-Yes, I've got it, I've got the list.
-Let's go, we're out of here.
We have way too much to do and a short, short, short amount of time.
So we basically got to hustle, hustle, hustle.
Let's measure it. Wait, don't tag it yet.
No. Bring that down just a little bit.
Lil Jon, you can help with the splicing and all that.
It's going to overlap a little bit, but I have to do it.
Despicable Me, we have to put this somewhere.
Oh, the film strips are here.
OK, you've got to go to the left, and then I think it's perfect.
If you go left...
Put it right here?
-But you can't see it, though.
I know, I've got to raise it a little bit.
-You can't see it at all.
-At all, even right there?
I'm just going to put it, even if you can't see it.
Here we are. That looks cute.
We got there, and the stage has now got its colour.
We can see the cut-outs, and they look great.
This is going to be pretty cool. I think this is going to work.
Which side is North America and which side is South America?
Yes, which way does it go?
-Yes. It's very visually lovely.
..surreal to have cardboard cut-out of people who are standing there in
-the same outfits.
-Well, I like that we're representing and using our
celebrity all at the same time.
-I wasn't about that, I was talking about the logic.
Oh. I don't know if there's any.
I don't know if
getting cut-outs is really an idea.
I mean, if you were the original person who got the idea of cut-outs,
you know, that would be cool. But it was none of us.
-Thank you, Fake Productions.
-We've plenty of time left.
I've got to get the Spider-Man out.
OK, let's sort these out.
Lil Jon. My priority is Spider-Man.
Let's just get it done. I think Lil Jon is Harry Potter.
You're assigned to Despicable.
And Miss La Toya Jackson is Spider-Man.
Omarosa, when you're back here, you can't see the Orlando at all.
-We all know.
You think they could get something to plank it up.
We're being judged by the executives.
One of the criteria we're being judged on is how we integrate their
So not having that Orlando showing up was something that could possibly
make us lose the task.
Would you like me to start sticking
these little SpiderMans on the wall?
Please. Just take initiative.
I've got 100 decisions to make.
If y'all could help make one or two of 'em, would be great with me.
I've never seen people hate like that. It's really cruel.
To me, Omarosa's probably one of the nicest people I have ever met.
You weren't expecting that one, were you?
I'll put them on various... Don't you think?
-Let's scratch them.
-I don't like them at all.
OK. In the net? No, not in the net, either?
You don't like them? We'll just keep them.
Yes, that's OK, I want to keep it as clean as possible.
When you come in and take the picture, unlike with Despicable,
this is so iconic.
And you're getting caught up in his web.
-So you like...
Well, you're not offering anything,
don't critique unless you're offering.
You have to give people a chance to excel,
and you have to give people a chance to show where they're weak at.
And if we end up in the boardroom,
I will bring their weaknesses to the forefront.
What about the web shooter, that is...
I have never seen the web shooter in a movie,
I'm trying to make it authentic.
For our photo experience,
we all had different roles that Omarosa had designated to us.
She gave me, of course, Spider-Man.
But she goes, "No, I want nothing in your booth."
But if you say something negative to her, the venom comes out.
You know, the little red ones were perfect.
I know, because they stick to the wall, they look cute.
-And they could touch them.
-And even the web shooter.
I hope she's not setting me up to...
I hope she's not setting me up to fail.
Wow, she's really setting me up to fail.
This is going to be really interesting,
I'm going to fight my behind off if we lose.
Was she not asking for your opinion on anything?
-She does have input,
but when anyone tries to suggest anything,
-she shoots you down.
-Shoot her down quick.
So if we win it, she's going to say it's all her idea, and if we lose,
she's going to say it's us.
Move right over there.
Come right up here. People can take pictures up on the thing.
We'd love to take pictures.
Once we opened the gates, people started flowing in.
And it was exactly as I hoped it would be.
Get in between us and stuff.
Yes, get in between us.
Each of us, you know, capturing the spirit of one of the rides.
And all of my team got into it.
Yes, everybody was having fun with it.
This time, now, you're part of my family!
Don't count to three, just take it.
Are you ticklish?
There's a little too much energy.
Gary was going for it.
I am a tickle monster! I'm going to get you.
The people that came to see us and partake in our celebration...
..you put your hands right on their rib cage,
and when the picture's taken, tickle them.
And they're going... They're really happy.
It was fun. I'm having so much fun, I can't remember my name.
Come up here, guys. OK.
Guess your birthday, the day you were born.
This is what memories are about.
When's your birthday? December 4th, 1998, was a Friday.
I have an unusual memory.
I actually have HSAM,
which is highly superior autobiographical memory.
I remember practically every day of my life.
February 8th, 2001, was a Thursday.
It was a Wednesday.
-You can't stump me.
Marilu Henner is adorable, but she's just kind of kooky.
I know every day of my life,
so I can tell you what day of the week you were born.
But that's what this place is all about, making memories.
-When is your birthday?
-I mean, I literally, on three occasions,
watched Marilu go, "I have a special talent for memory, and that's what
"this is all about, it's the memories
"of your memory and my gift that is memory."
And the person is going, "Can I take your picture?"
There you go, do you want to take a picture?
When's your birthday?
-How are you?
-Welcome to our little shindig here.
Do not leave, I just have to speak to these gentlemen,
because I'm a project manager.
-How are you?
-How's it going? Who's doing the best job?
The best job up there? Gary. But it's a little too much energy.
Gary is scaring the children, but it's all good,
people have been really enthusiastic.
What are you guys trying to accomplish?
They wanted a 3D experience, and people love celebrities.
So we get everybody up there in a cut-out,
let's make it 3D, they're all in.
The Trumps are definitely guarded.
I can't tell anything.
I'm absolutely glad we didn't go risky with Penn's idea,
because if it's not going to tie into the brand,
then my gut tells me it's a mistake.
-All right, guys, you have fun.
-See you later.
-Are you all ready?
And open it all.
We're going to start you off in the wizarding world of Harry Potter.
Step right in.
Every aspect of our 3D experience was amazing.
As opposed to one big giant world, you get three.
Three is always better than one.
Would you want to have three French fries or one French fry?
-You guys like Spider-Man?
I know, I love him too, he's just incredible.
What does he love to do?
Wrap you into the web.
Omarosa had designated to me, of course, Spider-Man.
I was trying to create an experience for the children when they come
through, and Omarosa only gave me this spider web.
But they liked it, so I'm happy.
Excited, excited, excited.
Welcome. Omarosa, Team Power, welcome to our fan interaction.
Please, come on in.
Hello, everybody, welcome to Minion training.
I have kids and I don't even know what this is.
In our training, what we do is we train you to become a Minion.
As soon as Don Junior and Eric walked in, I was really nervous and
I was a little worried that they wouldn't be able
to get down and dirty and get playful,
but I saw them smiling and laughing, so I hope that,
I hope it all came across right.
So your task today, your first task,
is to go out there and create mayhem.
-As the new Minions.
-We're good at that, especially in the boardroom.
Dee Snider, Gary Busey, right down here.
We've even got a Baldwin. Doesn't matter which one.
Hey, what's going on, guys, how are you?
-Good to see you.
-Good to see you guys too.
We took you literally.
Family fun that lasts forever.
-We went with that as a slogan.
We've got Despicable Me down there with Lisa Renna.
I wanted to paint his...
-I am the Cat in the Hat.
-I see that.
-I love you.
When the execs showed up, Gary just couldn't contain himself.
-Let me finish my pitch.
-I'll get out of the way.
He's worrisome in the sense of, like, what is he doing,
is he going to screw me up?
Do you want a picture with the Cat in the Hat?
I'll have one with the Cat in the Hat, yes.
-Come on, let's go up there.
We need a camera.
They didn't have a choice in taking a picture with me.
I said, "Come with me,"
and we shot up on the platform and there we were.
Let's all get up there.
It was a wonderful reaction from the executives.
And they were great in the support they gave us, without saying a word.
It was in their eyes.
And it was in their smiles.
-Now you've got something to remember forever.
-Marilu and I have had a good time.
-Why don't you all come in?
-Good to see you again.
-Nice to see you.
We have quite a crowd here. Wow.
The executives from Universal Orlando Resort arrived,
and they saw what I created.
And the first reaction was, wow.
-Thank you. Oh, my! Cool.
Who's down with Griffindor? There you go.
-Are you going to make her a Slytherin?
-I'll be Slytherin.
-It matches the outfit.
-Action shot. OK.
-There we go. Yes.
Time to step through to the next adventure.
-Welcome. How are you?
I believe that the Universal executives loved, loved,
loved our exhibit.
We came up with a concept that I believe was never done before.
We found a very clever and creative way to present three of their
We just, we smashed it on creativity.
Welcome to Gru's Minion mayhem.
-It is Minion mayhem.
-You all say mayhem.
One minute warning, team.
One minute, then we're done.
Come on down, take some pictures with Dee Snider,
Penn Jillette, Gary Busey.
I feel my team was with me,
worked with me and was a part of this entire project.
I feel I hold the burden as a project manager.
Because if it doesn't work, it's my ass on the line.
And I will have to answer the tough questions.
-It's going to be a fight.
-Mr Schneider? Yes.
I request permission to take off my hat and cloak.
-I do, too.
-What's up, dude?
Oh. He'll never change. How did you like my plane?
I loved it, man, it was cool as hell.
It's the better one. The one you had before was kind of... That was OK.
That was nice. That was nice.
Is this as good as you've seen, or better?
-This is probably A plus.
-You seen some pretty good ones.
I've seen some good ones, this one here's A plus.
Blows them away. What did you think, Lil Jon?
Amazing. Can we take it out again?
Yes. You know, Dennis, you know, very simple,
if you have a plane like that,
you know you can have any woman in the world, don't you?
-You know that.
-Well, we had
a discussion on the plane with your sons.
-I have no recollection of that conversation, for the record.
I thought the plane had almost
no chance of making it back, with Dennis.
You've taken apart a couple of planes, right?
-Absolutely. You know that, brother.
-You better believe it.
I'll tell you. So what are you thinking?
-About your plane?
-No, about your task.
I think the task went great, my team was great,
we functioned well together.
-It's a great team.
-Who's your strong player, would you say?
On this particular task, I mean, everybody in the team did what they
needed to do when I asked them to do it.
I knew what their strengths and weaknesses were, and so I gave them
tasks that I felt that they could deliver.
Dee, maybe I could ask you. You guys were given three things that
you were going to be judged on. Creativity, brand messaging and then
the overall guest experience. Who did you delegate what to?
And I'd actually like to hear the same from Omarosa because that's
obviously going to really play who's going to go home tonight.
The idea for the 3D experience.
Well, we ran through a few different ideas that Penn had and explored
some other things. The final idea was mine that we used.
The presentation, that was really a group effort.
We all knew what we needed to do in that case.
It was tied into the 3D experience,
so we wanted the presentation to be sort of a spill over of what we were
-giving the people.
-Were you a good leader?
-I believe I am.
-Do you think the team listened?
-Marilu, what do you think?
-I, you know...
-Was he a good leader?
-He was a good leader, I think...
-What was the weakness?
Well, we got some distractions sometime.
The time element was definitely the weakness.
Is that your project manager's fault?
Well, I think it was built into the task,
but I also think that sometimes,
you know, some of the players are a little hard to manage and so...
Who was your weakest player, Marilu, on the team?
I think Gary. I adore him,
but he's definitely a distraction a lot of the time.
Do you ever notice a kiss of death?
It's always whenever they say, like, I adore someone.
-He's mad at me know.
-I adore Dennis but, he's...
-I adore Penn, but he's like the worst.
Why can't somebody just say like...
I think so-and-so is horrible.
OK. So why was he no good?
Well, Gary is very dear, he's a lot of fun, but he's very distracting,
and so you always have to kind of rein him in.
-And I really do like you, it's not that.
-When was I distracting?
No, I mean, there's, like, noises coming from you and there's always,
like, you get into people's faces and there's always something off and
Dee asked you if you knew how to do a camera and you were about to
do it and then it was explained to you, so...
-What do you think about that, Gary?
-Do you agree with her?
No, I don't. I don't agree with her.
-Because everybody on this team did their best,
-nobody was in the way, nobody...
-Nobody talked loud, nobody was in anybody's face.
Are you now unhappy with Marilu because of what she said?
No, I just understand what she is and where she's coming from.
-What is she?
-Well, she's herself in the best way of all.
-I'm not disappointed in anyone.
I'm not disappointed in Marilu.
She's just telling you how she felt about the situation.
All right. Lisa, what did you think of your project manager?
First of all, I love Dee as a project manager.
I love him too, I hope I don't have to fire him.
Yeah, great project manager.
No, I mean the risk is, if you lose,
the project manager just has a very good chance of being fired,
-you understand that.
Probably if you look, a 70% chance for the losing team.
Hey, Penn, who was your star?
-Because he was project manager?
That's good. What do you think, Stephen?
It was really one of those situations, Mr Trump, where
everybody was working in a collaboration under his leadership.
So if I had to pick one, it was Dee.
Dee, you actually told Eric and I that Gary was probably the strongest
player when we met with you over at Universal.
Well, there was multiple parts to this task.
In the presentation part, where we were engaging the public
and entertaining people, that is Gary's strong suit.
-He was welcoming, I mean, dancing, singing, posing,
he was the strongest guy out there.
-I was a Cat in a Hat.
So, overall, would you say he does a good job?
In that instance, he doesn't have...
Would you bring him back if you lose?
-If I lose?
-If you lose, if your team loses...
You don't think you lost, right?
-No, I don't.
-You think you did a good job?
-Yes, I do.
-But you don't think you lost, either.
-Oh, absolutely not.
-I did not lose.
-You know, he is good competition.
He is. You respect him, don't you?
-I absolutely do.
-Because you don't respect a lot of people.
So did you do well as the project manager?
I managed this task to the nth degree and I believe that we won.
-Who was no good on your team?
-Who was no good?
-Who was no good?
-You know, I thought the team worked hard.
In terms of creative contributions,
I thought Dennis wasn't the biggest creative contributor of the project.
-Did he work hard?
-He worked hard, he picked up a hammer and a nail.
So you mean if you lose, you will be bringing Dennis back?
-There were other...
-And you may have lost.
No, I feel very comfortable that we won.
-So, would you bring Dennis back?
-I'm not certain yet.
Who else would you bring back? Who else would you bring back?
It depends on why we lose, Mr Trump.
I made sure that everybody on the team had a specific role and that
they had to be accountable for that.
Who's your best player?
You know, my wing person has to be Lil Jon.
I tapped into his creativity, his energy.
-So you thought he was great?
-He was excellent.
-I agree with you. That's why he's back.
-He's a fantastic player.
-There's no question.
-That's nice, Lil Jon.
-Well, this has been so good for you, Lil Jon.
You know, this guy in the last show basically has made a fortune.
I hear you've made a fortune,
everyone's telling me you made a lot of money.
-I'm doing OK.
-How much did you give me of all that money that you made?
I got on your plane, that's good enough.
He gave me nothing.
-I put my butt on your seat.
-Nobody gave me anything.
Right, Lil Jon, who was the best person in your team?
-Who was the best?
-I mean, everybody really contributed.
This was the type of task that you had to have everybody working in
sync together or else you'd fail.
And we were all in sync.
We were literally running through the park, running, top speed,
-time running out.
-So time was really a problem for you too?
It was hard as hell.
This was one of the hardest tasks I've ever done.
Did you like the park?
-Yeah, it's great.
-He told me he's coming back with his son.
-Yeah, I'm definitely going back. Definitely going back.
So, Brande, let me ask you this,
what did you think of Omarosa as project manager.
Well, for me, and this is a matter of opinion,
for me, it's not my personal style.
I prefer it to be a little bit more light and fun and it was a little
bit more of a tense atmosphere.
-With Omarosa, I'm shocked to hear.
-It's like a death-defying atmosphere.
-Dennis. Let me ask you about Omarosa.
She's famous for being nasty, she was voted number one, the most
evil person in the history of reality television. Not bad.
I didn't get that, you got that, right?
-So that's pretty good.
Do you find her nasty?
The only person I find nasty in my lifetime has been my mother.
-Oh, my God!
-She's easy to me.
Your mother was difficult?
Oh, she's very difficult. I was difficult too.
-I can imagine.
-I was difficult.
-I bet you were difficult.
-I was difficult, so, it's all good.
Claudia, let me ask you, Omarosa, project manager, how was she?
She cracked the whip.
-And she... Er...
Tell me. Nasty, tough or smart?
All? You like her?
Just tell me, please.
I do, we're friends outside of the show.
-Do you like Claudia?
-Do you think she's smart?
-She is smart.
OK, so, Dee, you think you won.
-Omarosa, what do you think?
-I think we won.
-OK, Eric, Don,
show the other teams the photo and the photo experience.
I'm having a little trouble seeing.
But that's images in the booth.
Oh, I see.
We've got to win this, are you kidding me? Have you seen that?
What do you think of Omarosa's team photo experience?
I'm not 100% sure what it is.
You think it's better than yours?
-Even though you don't know what it is?
Well, it's more creative, but I don't see the use of celebrity.
I've been on this show before, obviously,
and echoed in my brain that I heard so many times,
"You didn't use your celebrity that you had,
"you didn't use enough of your celebrity."
It's about marketing.
It was about the experience people had.
Well, actually, I'm going to say something.
Dennis asked a very important question when we were meeting with
the executive. He asked them,
"Do you use celebrities in your marketing?"
And they said, "We don't because
-"we want our characters to be the celebrities."
They blatantly said that.
-We nailed that.
-That's a good question, Dennis. You are doing very well, Dennis.
I'm coming up, Mr Trump.
Not only that, but I think in talking to the executives, they were
also very key on the idea of being able to use this once the
celebrities leave the park.
-Not just for the 24 hours that you're there.
OK. Omarosa, what do you think
of Dee's photo experience from his team?
You know, I'm a little underwhelmed and I was expecting big things from
Dee because he is so brilliant, but this is underwhelming and I...
Well, that was well said, man!
That was good, Omarosa, you're getting so much kinder.
-Oh, my God!
-It's still a kill.
You know, it's still a kill, but it's so much nicer.
She used to be vicious.
Now she's vicious but in a much kinder way, right?
-It's a kinder, gentler Omarosa.
I call it, you know, she's just as evil but she's smarter, right?
-It's only a matter of time.
-So what do you think?
-Yeah, I was.
I'm underwhelmed and there was a key that she said.
The executives wanted to use this even after we left.
They wanted to be able to replicate this throughout the park,
so it's hard to replicate it when Marilu's not there or when Lisa's
not there or when Dee's not there.
Why not? The cut-outs are right there, I think that it's strong...
We incorporated the celebrity with the branding of the characters from
Don, you've had a lot of input from executives, really great executives,
What were the strengths and weaknesses, Don, of Dee's team?
Well, they really like the idea that within the marketing campaign you
really identified the family fun that lasts forever.
It wasn't just about the here and now experience but really bringing
people in for a vacation.
They liked that the celebrities really got into the roles,
they sort of wore outfits that really also fit the characters.
You know, Penn, you were the wizard, that was a very natural fit.
That's what that was, it was a wizard's hat.
You were Shrek, I don't know
if it was as natural a fit, but it sort of worked.
The negatives were that the design was a little bit simple.
It lacked the staying power because, again, once the celebrities left,
you lost a little bit of that.
It wasn't the full character experience from that standpoint.
And the park guests were more interested in taking pictures with
you as celebrities than they were with you as characters.
So, Eric, what were the pros and cons from Omarosa's team?
Omarosa, they thought you were really incredibly creative and they
thought that, generally, it was very interactive, right,
you could leave it behind without celebrities,
you can walk in there and people could really enjoy it for a long
time to come. They also thought you did a great job featuring the entire
resort on the film strip, you had multiple parks, you had restaurants,
you had all the hotels, etc, etc, etc.
They thought that that was really fantastic.
But Orlando on Universal Orlando was actually below the film strip,
-you couldn't see it and...
-I said that.
-You know, I think for us as builders...
-I said that.
As people who're focused on detail, it's important that you get those
things right, I mean, it's the first thing that Donny and I noticed.
Don, give me the criteria.
One was creativity, one was brand messaging,
effectively incorporating the marketing campaign led to you by the
executives, and the last one was the overall guest experience.
And our guests had a blast and I think you all had a blast, too.
You stayed, it looked like you were having a great time and that was a
big criteria for this competition.
But, Omarosa, you heard the criteria?
-You just heard it.
Dee, you just heard it. Do you think you won based on that criteria?
It was a marketing campaign.
We couldn't even make decisions until we finally heard the marketing
campaign. It's about marketing.
-It was about the experience people had.
Dee, you just said it. Experience.
But do you think she won on creativity?
Creativity, they had a very creative presentation.
You think you won on experience?
Absolutely, and getting the message over.
So which is more important?
At the end of the day, you're trying to sell something as a businessmen.
-At the end of the day...
-Dennis, he's talking.
Dennis, you have to pay respect to this man.
-I know. He's only three years older than me.
Go ahead, Dennis.
What the deal is, though, the experience at the park, right?
At the park about those three...
-Dennis is really into this, you know?
-About the park, right?
I don't believe it, I've never seen him into it.
The last time he was partying every night, that wasn't a pretty picture.
The fact is that we're all stars here.
Why would people want to come and take a picture of yourself on your
project when you're standing right there?
That's a double negative right there.
Well, I think Dee thinks he won based on integration of marketing,
-what do you think? Is that it?
-Is that your strength?
-I think that's a big thing to miss.
-It's a big... It's good, it's fine. It's big.
And by the way, I think on that criteria,
Eric and I probably agree with you. But there's two other criteria.
-And I think that we won on the other two criteria.
-All right. Are you ready?
But before we find out who won it, let me ask you this,
do you think that I should comb my hair like him?
I like the questions this year.
No, that's right. Like Lil Jon, that's even better.
-Lock it up.
I have more questions about your hair
in the last ten years than I have...
That's all I hear about, you know, it is my hair, you know that.
-I don't think you should ever change it.
-Should I change it, Penn?
-No, no, should I comb it back?
-To me, it's combed back.
Forward and back. You know they say it's a comb over,
but it's not a comb over, it's really back,
I really have a hairline.
-Like a wave. Look it...
-It's a hairline, it's actually a hairline.
Yeah. I see your scalp, it's good.
-It's you, Mr Trump.
-I take a lot of heat... What?
-It's you, be you.
-I like it, don't worry about what other people say.
I takes so much heat. Every time they write about me, they talk about
-my hair, and usually not as a compliment.
-Can we know?
-You want to know?
-You want to know who won? ALL:
So, you know whose team they think was better?
By quite a bit.
And in this case, I agree.
Dee, congratulations, you lost.
-That was a new fake out.
Omarosa. Look at my Omarosa.
Omarosa, you're going to ruin your image.
-Stop. You're on TV.
-You're going to ruin your image.
-We've got to confirm if that's real or not.
Was it the fake out, or is it the win?
It's the win, and she won it for Michael's charity.
She's been through a lot.
-She's been through a lot.
-It's a release.
You just take care, hon.
It's a great tribute to Michael that you won.
I just miss him so much.
And not only did you win 20,000 that I'm giving....
OK? ..but Universal Orlando Resort is doubling it,
they're going to give another 20, so you won 40,000...
-..in honour of Michael.
-That's a great thing.
-Isn't that nice?
That's great. She's very emotional.
You know, this is the first time you've actually won as the project
-manager, is that right?
And you know why you won?
-Up there, right?
So, congratulations on this.
You OK? So, you go back to your suite, watch on television,
if you'd like, which I know you would like.
And I think it's terrific,
and I think it's a great tribute to Michael.
Congratulations. There you go, girl.
It's good, we won, we won.
You did a great job, but I'm sorry,
somebody from your team will be fired.
Why don't you get some Kleenex and wipe yourself?
It's OK, it's OK. Have a seat, relax.
Why don't I give you some champagne?
Would you like some champagne to relax your nerves?
-Where is the champagne, guys?
-Champagne. I got it.
I think sometimes I'm so strong
that people forget about what I've been through.
It just means so much to me.
I won for the Sue Duncan Children's Centre.
My late fiance was an alumni of that centre.
I'm so happy.
Omarosa, this is for you.
This is for you. You need to have a sip of that.
That will help your nerves, and you'll relax.
Omarosa's fiance, Michael Clarke Duncan, passed away
not long ago, and I truly believe that she's using this as a card
to manipulate herself through the game and soar to the top and win.
That, right there, was like an Oscar winner, right there.
-What was that?
-That was Oscar...
-Omarosa believes that she's getting away with this little
game that she's pulling and thinks that nobody's onto her.
I know a few of us are.
-And what he started.
Rest in peace, baby.
-You guys, you guys...
Look at the TV.
So, Penn, who came up with the creative for your team?
It was Dee.
I came up with two ideas that I thought were OK.
-Were they used?
-They were not.
-And then Dee took over.
-Do you think they were better,
-in light of what happened?
-Not in light of what happened.
Even before, I liked them more, but I didn't want to push too much,
and I got behind Dee completely. And Dee's idea was fine, too.
I wanted to do a couple of magic things.
Whose fault... I think that would have been great.
-Whose fault is it?
I have... Every time I've been asked that, I've said project manager,
including when I was project manager.
So, what were you going to do with magic?
The nice thing is that the fabricators we had were the
fabricators that did Penn & Teller's Haunted House there.
So, they actually know stuff and have done mirror gags.
By the way, you don't have to go any further.
Wouldn't that have been great to use?
Yeah, he has a couple of great magic tricks,
but he couldn't figure out the way to connect them to the message and
to the park at all. A severed head, which would've been amazing for
people to have a picture of them with no body, but we couldn't come
up with a way to connect it to the park.
Dee, why was it so simple?
You had some great ideas. That sounds like a great idea to me.
Now, maybe it was, maybe it wasn't, who knows?
They had to choose, and the executives had to choose.
Yours was very simple.
-Very simple, maybe too simple, don't you think?
Well, there's a couple of reasons for that.
One thing, and this is not a blame on you, Penn, at all,
but Penn's ideas are so big and so...
-..great, that it kind of makes people,
I don't say uncomfortable,
but nobody else was forthcoming with any ideas.
You kind of feel intimidated by the magnitude of Penn's ideas.
Maybe you didn't push the envelope enough.
What do you think about that, Penn?
-I do believe...
-Seems like it.
-I do believe that when I have an idea,
I try to make it sound as good as possible.
He does. I'm not blaming him.
I also think you can say, Dee, perhaps you'll say, honestly,
that I backed down instantly when you made your decision?
Yes, he does, and he supported me...
Well, I think that's good, he supports you,
-he's been a very good supporter.
-I backed down very quickly.
-Even if he disagrees.
And he had a couple of great ideas, I couldn't figure out how to
incorporate them, and while I thought my idea was simplistic,
actually I originally thought of having much more going on in the
background, but when I got all the bodies up there,
and then the families up there, you couldn't see any background.
Dee, who disagreed with you?
Did anybody say it's too simple,
it doesn't have whatever it has to have?
Did anybody raise their hand and say we disagree?
-Marilu, did you raise your hand?
-Well, what happened is Penn had some
-really out there ideas.
-Would you've taken his ideas?
-Well, if we could have done them...
-Did you have time?
-..because it was a severed head.
-Do you think you had time?
-I don't think we had time.
-Wait, did you have time?
Absolutely would have been done sooner than this one.
-It was not a time issue.
So tell me, why didn't you fight harder for that?
I think I made the case as strongly
as possible without having been unpleasant.
Dee, do you think Penn should be fired?
Well, no, sir, we explored the idea extensively...
You know why? Because his idea was so good, I love it.
I don't know about these two guys, because they...
But I love it.
-But, sir, if it was disconnected from...
-I think Penn should be fired
because he didn't pursue his idea.
What do you think? Do you like that?
-No, I do not.
-Penn, you're fired.
I'm only kidding, OK.
-They had me nervous for a second.
I was already on the elevator!
Penn learned from the last time around, where you were actually
criticised for kind of pushing your ideas too aggressively.
Last time I was fired for pushing my idea too much.
If I'm fired for pushing not enough...
-Look, he's the project manager.
-..it'll be cool.
-I mean, it is tough, because you're the project manager.
You have to be able to incorporate it into the marketing campaign, and
we could not... We used a lot of time exploring these ideas.
Dee, who was your weakest team member?
In what regard?
The overall regard. Or, as we'd say,
the overall experience, which you blew.
In this project, everybody came to the table.
Who's your weakest player?
Only because he has a narrow skill set, and he was one of my stars too.
But wouldn't you say Gary is actually a mad genius?
He's crazy, but he's a genius, right?
Yes, but his skill set is limited.
Why? He's a great performer, great entertainer,
-but he has no computer abilities.
-Yes, I do.
-No, sir, you do not.
-Well, wait a minute, I beg to differ.
-Gary, what do you think?
-Ask me, you're not confronting it right,
because if you're the project manager,
and you have something you want me to do, don't ask me what I can do,
ask me for what you want me to do, and I'll do it.
Here we go! I told y'all it was coming!
-He is going after the wrong person.
Dee, I do recall, and Eric can verify it,
but you said he was a big part of brand messaging,
which is really the category that you won in the test.
I said he was my star at the presentation, yes, I did...
-Stephen, what are your thoughts?
-And I don't want to take that away from
-him, he was great.
I think, going into it,
both teams knew that time management was going to be almost impossible.
Not really. Because Penn said his thing could've been a lot quicker.
No, no, no, no, that's the correction I'd like to make.
-At no point did Penn say that for sure it would work.
-That's a fact.
-What does that mean?
That means that when the fabricators were brought in...
Nobody, nobody, nothing works for sure. By the way, Stephen,
-there's nothing that works...
-It's a very sophisticated illusion.
Yeah, and it involved mirrors, as well.
Penn, if they used your idea, do you think they would've won?
-You know, you had to get... We weren't done with the idea...
I think you're right, he's the team leader, he's the project manager,
you shouldn't force it on him, and I think you probably learned
-that lesson previously, right?
-I know I'm sinking my battleship.
-But when we left...
-But, to a certain extent, if an idea's that
good, I think it's a great idea, you should've maybe been a little
bit more forceful.
Well, I don't know, when it's time sensitive,
and you have a friend who you trust...
Yeah, but you thought you'd do better with time, with your idea.
If you sincerely believe that the person understands the idea,
and Dee and I have a good relationship,
I keep arguing if I believe the person doesn't understand it.
Arguing after someone understands it...
So he liked his idea better and you said...
-No, no, no.
-Do you think Marilu should be fired?
Am I talking too much?
She will remember this experience.
She's terrific. OK.
Who are you going to bring back? Two people.
Two people I'm bringing back, it's not a reflection on this task.
Well, you should probably try and have it be a reflection on the task
in all fairness, Dee.
Well, one person...
You know the way I view it?
The task is first and then I take history, but, you know,
it does start with the task.
Go ahead, who are you bringing back?
Well, the only one fly in the ointment for me during this project
was Stephen Baldwin.
-I didn't trust him.
-A lot of people don't trust him.
Although he's very religious, right?
-After what happened...
-Are you a very religious person?
-I'm a man of faith.
-OK, that's good.
-Why don't you trust him?
-After what happened on the first task with the
way he withheld his money and was, I felt, a little arrogant with his
expression of that he was saving it for himself...
But was he bad on this task?
Not that he was bad, he... Erm...
He... I don't... He whispered...
He'll like... He'll talk openly in the room
and then he'll come over and he does a lot of whispering and saying,
"I think this is a really good idea you've got here."
-Who else are you bringing back?
-So, I didn't trust him.
You're bringing back Stephen. Who else?
Because of his limited skill set...
Well, I don't know, you know, that depends on what you mean by limited.
I know you're going to say Gary, but... I mean, he's a great actor.
That's a little insulting, I think.
I don't mean to be insulting, but in my view, he has a limited skill set.
-And I can't bring the other three back.
OK. Marilu, Penn, Lisa, go back to your suite at Trump Tower.
The three of you, I'm sorry, go outside, you'll come back,
somebody will be fired.
-That's OK, that's why we're here.
That's right. That's why you're here. Thank you.
Omarosa, turn off your TV...
OK, Dee and Stephen.
-Dee's going home.
-Dee is the project manager.
That was a bad choice, Dee.
-The idea was terrible.
-You've got to be careful, though,
Stephen is wicked in that boardroom.
I don't get it.
-The whole thing?
-What don't you get?
I thought we did a better job.
I'm sorry I had to drag you in there, guys.
Last time Adam Corolla fell on his own sword.
He said, as project manager, I take responsibility.
And Mr Trump said, "If you don't take somebody back with you,
"I will fire somebody else."
So Mr Trump fired Adam Corolla and another team member.
I absolutely do not want that to happen.
Do what you've got to do, but we've got to do what we've got to do.
-What do you think, Don?
-To me, it's really going to come down to the
guest experience because that's ultimately what they lost on.
As a family man, they didn't cater to kids.
My kids don't want to get a picture taken with Penn in a costume,
they want to get a picture with Harry Potter,
-and that also has staying power in the park.
-OK. Good point.
-What do you think, Eric?
-I think he really needs to fight.
-A lot of this blame falls on him.
-Project manager, always tough.
Amanda, let them come in.
Yes, sir. Gentlemen, you can all go back into the boardroom now.
Dee, with all the creativity you have on your team,
you have very creative people, how did you lose on creativity?
The ideas we focused on initially, the magic tricks,
we spent a lot of time, and that's where our time got eaten up.
As I said, while they were very good ideas,
they couldn't be incorporated into the brand message, I felt,
and to just have a magic trick for the sake of a magic trick,
I thought was a mistake. That was my call.
Dee, don't you think, though, Universal,
Harry Potter, one of the biggest marketing campaigns of all time,
wouldn't magic fit perfectly with a Harry Potter theme?
Well, we felt that we had to represent a wide variety,
they sent us all over the park and many different rides,
and to focus on only one would not have been following our marching
orders, so to speak, I felt.
So explain, why did you bring these two people back?
-Last season, when Adam Corolla fell on his own
sword, you fired Michael Andretti because he didn't play by the rules.
I see the writing on the wall here and I didn't want you to fire
another team member if I threw myself on my own sword.
And when you say you see the writing on the wall, what does that mean?
Well, Don made it very clear, and I certainly understand what he said.
He said that this project was broken into three different parts and I
believe your words were, "It may wind up being the person responsible
"for the part that failed who will be fired."
That's what you said earlier, did you not?
-And I appreciate and understand what you're saying.
So as the person who ultimately made the decision,
of course with the support of my team, but I ultimately did make the
decision to use that concept.
I feel that I'm the marked man, so to speak.
Do you think you should be fired?
If that's the reason why we lost, none of these guys did anything
wrong, I've enjoyed working with them, you know.
I have a problem with trusting this one, but I like him very much,
I know he's a man of faith and ultimately he's a good guy.
But ultimately, it's hard to fire one of them.
Yes, it is, sir, it is.
You know, I respect you for saying that.
I know you're not a quitter. You've never quit in your life.
No, sir. But I didn't want to fire anybody else.
-But, Dee, I don't want to fire you.
-I know, you've done it once already.
I don't want to fire you.
You're a solid guy, you're a great guy.
Much different than I would have thought.
Dee, you're fired.
-Thank you, sir.
-And you've been terrific, Dee.
But, Dee, you're right, I had no choice.
How are you doing, man?
I didn't expect to see you so soon.
-What do you think, Eric?
-I think Dee's a great guy,
he played the game with a lot of integrity.
He's the project manager and he took it.
-He's also quality.
Gary and Stephen really didn't deserve to be brought back.
The idea for the presentation was mine.
And really no amount of kicking and screaming and pointing fingers at my
team-mates was going to change that.
All that would've done is make me less classy and sort of a crappy
person for doing it. I just couldn't do it.
