This season on The Celebrity Apprentice...
I've issued a challenge to 14 of the world's most successful celebrities
to prove that they have what it takes
to make it big in my world.
14 celebrities, 14 egos, and more drama
than even they can handle.
-Gone are their agents...
-Where is the producer?
-Gone are their assistants...
-Oh, don't tell me that.
-Step right up, ladies and gentlemen!
This time, the battle is to raise money for their favourite charities.
-I present this cheque to you.
-Are you kidding, 50,000?
Oh, my gosh!
For their first task, the celebrities were split between men and women...
You're going to be selling hot dogs.
..and use their celebrity Rolodexes to bring out the big dogs.
-5,000 for a water!
This man is giving us 10,000 in cash, ladies and gentlemen!
-But when the results came in...
-You raised a total of 52,286.
..the men handed the women an embarrassing loss.
-That's a drubbing.
-..and Stephen's charity reaped the rewards.
The 69,324 is all going to go to your charity.
After a stunning defeat, Omarosa attacked Carol.
Now you're cowering from the fact that...
I'm not cowering at all, don't you ever even say that to me.
But Mr Trump was disappointed at Playboy Playmate Tiffany.
You didn't call Hugh Hefner. Forget about saving it for later, there is no later.
Tiffany, you're fired.
-We've got to make a pact before we go in there - we leave it in the boardroom.
Hello! I'm back!
-Is Tiffany OK?
-She was very sweet.
I think, in the end, what got her was that she held out
-with some of her contacts.
-Did you guys get really mean?
We already made a pact to leave it in the boardroom.
We left it in the boardroom.
-You left it in the boardroom? I don't think so.
-Tuck your shirt in.
Omarosa... Omarosa, don't be personal, all right?
-You made it personal.
-We hammered you today.
We beat you into the ground.
Omarosa, the gobby, self-confident creature we saw
in the first series of Apprentice, has been turned into a mutant.
Your breath, the alcohol coming from your breath is embarrassing.
Two glasses of wine, dearie.
I'm not going to argue with an alcoholic.
Oh, shut up, Omarosa, go to bed.
I actually feel quite sorry for Omarosa. She's now mixing it
with the big boys, and it ain't going to be pretty.
# Money, money, money, money
# Money, money, money, money
# Some people got to have it
# Hey, hey
# Some people really need it
# Hey, listen to me, y'all
# Do things, do things, do things
# Bad things with it
# Dollar bills, y'all, come on
# That mean
# Oh, mean
# Mean green
# Almighty dollar
# Don't you know that money
# Give me a nickel, brother Can you spare a dime?
# Money can drive some people out of their minds
# For the love of money
# No good, no good, money
# Money, money, money, money
# Money. #
How are you? Welcome.
-Cissy. Come around here, girls.
'After the first task, I was project manager.
'The funds raised were going to be given to the Carol Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund.'
For me, this cause is for my mother, she's a breast-cancer survivor.
'She's a very, very loving, caring woman.'
On behalf of Celebrity Apprentice...
..I present this cheque to you.
Oh. Oh, my gosh!
Oh, that is so wonderful.
-Isn't that something?
-Oh, that's something.
Isn't that great?
'I'm here to do my very best'
to raise funds and create more awareness to fight and battle breast cancer.
Oh, thank you so much.
I want to tell the Donald. I want to thank him.
You will. 'She loves what she does and I'm grateful to have an opportunity to support her in that.'
The goal is to ultimately find a cure, and I believe that's possible.
-I love you guys. God bless.
On my right is Terry Lundgren. He's the head of Macy's.
When it comes to marketing, nobody knows it better.
Now, who loves animals?
Tito, no kidding?
Lennox... What do you like, pit bulls or what?
-Cats, all right.
February is Pet Adoption Month.
Four million dogs are put into animal shelters every year.
Of the four million, only two million find a home.
Now, over here is Rob Leibowitz.
-He's with Pedigree - wonderful company.
-Thank you, Mr Trump.
It's because of the four million dogs in shelters that we created the Pedigree Adoption Drive.
Your task is to create a 30-second TV ad for the Pedigree Adoption Drive,
and we'll judge you on message, originality, and creativity.
Rob is going to make the choice, but Terry, Ivanka and myself will be looking over his shoulder.
Now, we're going to do something a little different.
I'm going to ask you to choose your project manager right now.
Real quick, guys, can we just huddle up?
Empresario, who is your project manager?
-I'm the project manager, sir.
-Oh, very good.
Lots of luck.
As a TV producer, I'm the queen of the Latino market.
I know that my style can win.
Hydra, who's your project manager?
-That's a very logical choice.
-He's a good marketer.
He's a real character, this one, I'll tell you.
He likes the women, though, don't you, Gene, huh?
-Are you hitting on your opponents, Gene?
-Of course, it's my job.
That's your life! Forget about your job.
'My greatest strength as a project manager is, I see the big picture,'
I'll fire anybody - I'll fire Donald Trump.
Due to the fact that we're not playing for money, the project manager of the winning team
is going to be given 20,000 for his or her favorite charity.
Good luck. Thank you.
Thank you, Mr Trump.
Can everybody stand up?
Can everybody just take big breaths, big, deep breaths in...
..and just imagine white light coming through all of you and white light coming out.
'Everybody's got their own style.'
Sometimes you're asked to take off your shoes, and everybody,
you know, touch the ground.
I live in Los Angeles, so you can imagine how some meetings start.
Everybody hold hands.
We're getting ready to do something really great for animals.
If Nely wants to stretch and yawn and kumbaya and meditate in the middle of a task, what can I say?
That's how she likes to lead.
I'm just really not into that existential bull BLEEP.
Thank you for seeing us so quickly.
First of all, we'd love to know what's the whole gist of what you're looking for...
We had a chance to meet with the client
to see what the client want for us to do.
What's really important is that you get in - when you buy Pedigree,
we make a donation to help dogs find loving homes.
Have you ever incorporated celebrities in your spots?
If you want to include celebrity in it, then that's great.
But what we really need are stories about dogs done in emotional, compelling ways
to get people to want to act.
'We sat with the client'
for a good half an hour, 45 minutes.
OK, I think we got it.
We so appreciate your time. 'And I think that was a really great idea.'
If we can get a finished 30-second commercial that's all done here,
you'll have enough time to show a dog,
to close in on a face, and very little else.
30 seconds is like nothing.
I made an executive decision - we're immediately going to the studio.
The war room is the battlefield. 'I didn't want to waste time meeting a Pedigree official.'
I had to optimise every single second we had.
We need to understand
what the commercial is before we know how to move forward.
I agree. 'The most important aspect of the challenge
'was to decide the concept for the film,'
because, in the end, the winner was going to be the team that came up with the best commercial.
Here's what I'd like to do - three celebrities,
boom, boom, boom, dog, dog, dog.
We have this dog - lonely, abandoned, needs a home.
And at the end, it finds a home in the arms of a naked Lennox Lewis.
Here's what I'm thinking, now, see. You start out, he's holding the dog.
-He's got on silk gloves. You don't know who this is.
And you're going to pull back so slowly...
Here's my vision...
It's going to be a 30-second continuous shot.
I don't buy that visual, but I don't want this to turn...
You don't buy that visual?! May...
May I speak?
-Because I've worked in film for 20 years.
So I believe the commercial is -
international championship superstar Lennox Lewis loves animals.
-If we film him holding a puppy, that's heartstrings.
-I like that.
'For me, celebrity is a currency, so however I can use that - selling'
hot dogs, whatever - I believe that you should maximise that potential.
Just really quickly, guys, I need to know from the project manager,
-who is directing the commercial?
-Erm, it looks to be you.
-Is that agreed?
I said, "If you make me director, then I'm just going to go... and get it going."
'This isn't rocket science.'
Once we have the 30-second done, we can start mapping out a view.
-Are we hiring you to be our spokeswoman for...?
-Not this one.
-Should we be sharing something with you?
Do you have a concept yet?
Let me finish the thought. She'll wait.
Can we tell Ivanka the concept, because she's keen to know?
Lennox is a world heavyweight champion superstar. He's also an unlikely guy
to use in a commercial like this, so there's a surprise factor.
-Just a second, no side conversations. Piers...
We're using a lot of time. Listen, we think it's terrific you're here, but we've got work to do.
What wasn't smart was Gene Simmons to say I'll wait when I asked a question.
Being the female of the species yourself does not mean that you
are going to be talking to your sisters about what we talked about?
To the women, because I'm a woman?
-No, I have no interest in doing that. 'That was not so smart.'
I think that was probably not a strategically intelligent thing to do, as I found it rather rude.
Take your fingers, Lennox, and kind of pet right between her eyes.
All right, hold on, Gene. Gene, Gene, Gene!
'The goal for us in this week's task was to create
'a 30-second community service ad'
within an extremely tight time constraint.
Good girl! All right, cut. We got it. That's great, that's great.
Is there an option to take Lennox to the shelter, photograph a dog,
-where Lennox goes into the cage, takes it out...?
Gene and Stephen were the producer and director,
they made it clear to all of us they wanted to do everything on their own.
I need to go outside with Lennox Lewis right away. B cameras ready?
I need the leash for the dog and Lennox.
'Our director wanted a scene'
-of Lennox walking the dog happily down the street.
-Ready - roll the camera!
-'When we went out on the street, traffic stopped.'
I need everybody out of my shot right now. Back up, guys.
Cars started to honk.
-All right, here we go!
OK, closing it up. Come on...
It was Vinny on one end and myself on the other, trying to hold back the public.
Your guys are killing me.
-It was a bit naive to think that we could get a scene going on location.
Come on, Vinny.
As the producer, I made the smart decision - stay inside the studio.
You can control noise. As soon as you leave there, you don't have any controls.
Here's my suggestion.
Go upstairs together and make an overview of the different shots.
For whatever reason, Gene said, "Get out of here now," without any explanation.
I don't mean to be a jerk, but I really think that it's going to come back and bite him on his backside.
I'm ready, we're ready.
You guys, shoot, shoot. It's so good, just shoot it!
Nely, do you need help with that?
I got it. 'I know what I need to do to keep from being fired.'
It was very strategic on my behalf not to get involved in the creative.
That's it, move on, we've got it.
When we got to the studio and we started taping, clearly, I took over.
-That's beautiful, perfect.
Are you shooting? Because it's fabulous.
I'm very comfortable in that space. I've been doing that many years.
And unless Gene Simmons pulls some rabbit out of the hat, we should win.
Put her on your lap.
Kiss him a little bit. OK, that's...
We don't have to tongue-kiss the dog! That's a bit much.
Most people look at dogs in shelters and go, "I don't want to take that dog home."
So I wanted to show that those dogs were fabulous dogs that
circumstantially were brought to this place.
OK, Nadia, I definitely am going to need a medium and a small cage.
OK, that's more important than the music.
Music, we could do at six o'clock.
'Nadia was not used to working for anybody. Whatever I would tell her to do, she did,'
but she didn't execute any of the things I told her to do very well.
I just want to feed these people. Is the food not here? They all told me they don't know about the food.
'I was supposed to order the food for the actors and the crew'
and to be sure that everybody on the set was happy.
Just be there, supporting the team.
Because we need to feed the crew. OK.
In the real world, if I felt that Nadia wasn't good, I'd be like, "You've got to go."
I want to hear colour in your voice, but the whole tone
of the commercial is, like, sad. You know what I'm saying?
'Nely has asked me to sort of assist her in the writing, the directing,
the producing, and I'm going to be helping her with the actors.'
I'm Max, I...
No, don't act, don't act. You had it when we were here before, yeah.
'They did not sound right at all,'
so I knew that I was going to really have to work.
I was a beauty queen in my day, but as I got...
No - in my day, I was a beauty queen.
I was a beauty queen in my day.
I don't want to hear acting or, like, singsong.
I just want to hear it just really simple.
'I had really no time to finesse their performances,'
but hopefully, we'll be able to figure out some way to make it work.
Let's record, Trace. Everyone needs a champ in their life - someone that loves them and cares for them.
-Take a beat after "dogs"...
-..find a loving home.
-Stephen decided that Trace was invariably going to be our voice.
Sadly, there are two million homeless dogs in America waiting to be adopted.
As soon as I heard Trace's voice, it sounded
like the voice of God.
Sadly, there are two million... That's great stuff.
OK, that's my favourite, too.
You're out of here - let me say goodbye to the guys.
-Gene, will we get to see the finished product before everybody else sees it?
-That's a mistake.
'When we hit the editing room,'
the entire team was asked to leave, go home, relax, watch cartoons,
'and Stephen and I are going to stay there and put this thing together.'
Before we disperse,
could we just go through how you guys now visualise the commercial?
-Probably not a good idea.
-'Gene and Stephen sent us home.'
I'm always wary when that happens,
because if things don't go brilliantly, they can turn round
and say, "Well, we were deserted by the other five."
OK, so, let's start with that. 'When we got in the editing room,
'you know, we had very limited time.'
So, with all of that, you've got to push your brain
-to channel something fabulous.
-Don't we have an alternative dog?
Because of the foam, I'm just saying, does he look appealing to...?
You don't like it because he's slobbering?
-I don't know that much about Saint Bernards, they just...
'When Nely did the close shots of the dog,'
doesn't look very good in a commercial.
-It's Beethoven, everyone loves him.
-I don't know why you guys don't like it.
You don't have time to whine or complain or whatever, you just have to make something happen.
Max, Lady, and Sam are all good dogs, and one of them may be right for you...
OK, so, grab that piece.
'Originally, we set up the commercial to be three different dog stories'
and you see them get adopted
and then I come on and say, you know, "Dogs rule."
I'm Marilu Henner. Adopt a dog today.
Everything's too big. Yeah, it's too big.
But what happened was the tones of the two pieces were so different that it was kind of jarring.
I can do it as a voice-over, even if you never see me.
-Yeah, that's what we're going to do at the end.
-What time is it?
10 o'clock. We have two hours left.
-Yeah, absolutely. I think that's brilliant.
Hi. How are you doing?
-I'm doing great. How are y'all doing?
-Good to see you.
-Nice to see you, too. So, how's it going?
-We're very pleased.
What was the most important thing you think the client was looking for?
The client wanted three things -
very strong messaging, he wanted it to be creative and original,
and he wanted an authenticity and a realness to it.
We decided to take a very emotional approach to the storytelling.
I want to hear the last takes of Trace's voice-over.
'A hero they can look up to. Someone that will protect...'
They're both terrific. You're good.
I have been...
given a gift.
-We're good, we're good.
After we went back to the hotel room, I started getting a little worried.
This is a teamwork thing, and I think all of us should have an idea of what's going to be shown
because if we lose, one of us is going home.
-From the beginning of the commercial...
-'I walked in.
'Gene didn't know I was coming. Stephen didn't know I was coming.
'Seeing the expression on Gene and on Stephen's face,'
-well, they were surprised.
-I got a call... I got a call...
-We have 40 minutes.
You understand this, correct?
Don't distract us, or we won't make it on time. You have to step out and let us finish.
-I sat back and let you guys do it, but he's been the Project Manager...
-We're wasting time.
-Then let's see.
'I wasn't worried when the other members showed up.'
If I'm the director, then I'm the guy that everybody's working for.
So I said, "Guys, this is the agreement. We're going to screw up if we don't stick by that."
We can't have this kind of committee. We got 40 minutes to finish this.
You must let us finish.
'I'm very serious about this cos this is about my charity and I want to try to win.
'I want to make sure that we stay solid throughout'
and I felt like we were kind of being left in the dark.
Under normal circumstances, let me tell you something. I'd say, "Get the BLEEP out of here."
-It's completely uncalled for.
I don't want to go home because of something that was wrong.
I run a multi-billion dollar company. We do commercials.
We do exactly the same stuff.
Let's be honest here - we came down here because we thought there was a problem.
I couldn't sleep. I wouldn't be able to sleep all night.
I'm not going to leave my life in their hands.
I'm a businessman and my business model is making sure everything's right.
I don't trust Gene. I don't trust Stephen.
I had enough.
Good morning, gentlemen.
Good morning. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have.
We're so ready, Rob. I mean, we really listened to you yesterday.
We decided to create my true dog story.
Our big push is multi-platform.
The number one place we thought we could get connectivity for you is on the web.
We can create ads. We also just...
We threw in a radio spot.
I want to see the commercial!
OK? Let's go. Let's see the commercial.
I'm Max. I used to live in a beautiful house, but my family moved away.
'We really killed ourselves coming up with a concept,'
writing a great piece of work, editing it well.
'We worked like dogs. We did a great job.'
'Love a good dog.'
I love it. I love it! THEY LAUGH
-Really good job. Thank you very much.
I think we're going to beat the guys because we went after heart,
-and women are usually better at that than men.
-Glad to see you.
We didn't spend a lot of time together yesterday, so what we're about to see
is kind of a bit foreign to me.
Concerned that you might have missed the mark because we didn't have a chance to talk that much.
I decided to forgo this location completely.
If you go to Sun Tzu, "The Art of War"...
-Well, I was doing the Mandarin version, but thank you.
It's embarrassing when he does that little cock up with the "Z.
-Thank you for correcting him.
-Please, it was nothing.
What he correctly identifies in his "Art of War" is battlefield is where the war room is.
It's not in a boardroom.
But Rob was not happy.
I had to make a decision and I stand by our product.
With all due respect, we would rather do less of our talking
and be judged by what it is that's up on that screen, respectfully.
'Everyone needs a champ in their life.
'Someone that loves them and cares for them.'
'When I saw the commercial, I was surprised.'
I went from being kind of a frown face to a smile.
I felt a lot better. And I really felt that they did their job.
'It takes a big heart to be a champion.'
You look good there, Lennox.
-Very good. OK. Thanks, fellas. See you later.
They both did really well, but one was fantastic.
So, you really liked them both, but you loved one.
So much so that we'll run one of these spots in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in early 2008.
-On network television?
-On network television.
-Wow. That's big.
I really think they liked it.
If we lose, and I don't think there's a chance of that,
it was the right decision to forgo the war room, shaking hands. We had a job to do.
Rob from Pedigree thought both teams did a really good job,
but I have to say he felt somewhat slighted
by the fact that you guys didn't go over and really talk to him.
He had also said that he thought that Gene was a little bit abrasive.
I have to say, just sitting here, I felt you were as well. I came to observe you.
I asked about the content of the commercial,
to which you said to Stephen, "She'll wait."
You asked me also when I was leaving if I was going to go
and tell the female because of some sort of sisterhood bond
-what you had been doing and what your general strategy was.
-Who said that to you, Gene?
Gene, did you insult my daughter? Huh?
-What did I say to you?
-Nobody insults my daughter!
-You said, "She'd wait."
Omarosa, what do you think of Gene's disrespect for Ivanka?
-It wasn't just the disrespect. He questioned your integrity.
And that, to me, is the most offensive part of what he did.
It was just unnecessary. You could have almost said nothing.
You're absolutely right, so I sincerely apologise...
-I appreciate that.
-..for any shortsightedness I may have had.
If you don't mind, I'd like to take another run. I want to see each ad. Empresario first.
I'm Max. I used to live in a beautiful house, but my family moved away.
Now I'm here. I'm a good dog. Why'd they leave me here?
They call me Lady. I was a beauty queen, but as I got older, I got heavier.
I'm a good dog. If I were thinner, would someone love me?
Sam's my name. My homelife was happy until the baby started sneezing.
-I hope there's another family that wants me.
-I'm a good dog.
When you buy Pedigree Food, we make a donation to help good dogs find loving homes.
Love a good dog.
-Gene, what did you think? Better than yours?
Do you believe yours is better? Do you really believe that?
-We're convinced of it.
-Let me just see the Hydra ad, please.
Everyone needs a champ in their life.
Someone that loves them and cares for them.
Sadly, there are two million homeless dogs in America waiting to be adopted.
When you buy Pedigree,
we make a donation to help dogs find a loving home.
It takes a big heart to be a champion.
Have you got one?
Nely, what did you think?
Very good, very professional, but, hands down, we won.
Omarosa, you were laughing.
I thought it was just hilarious because he's such a big, tough guy
and to see him cuddling with this little dog...
The kind of reaction Omarosa just gave us, that's what we wanted.
-Because I think you're hot. That's...yeah, but you're married!
-She does like you.
-She does like you a lot.
-Like a brother, like a brother.
And he's a big star. Why didn't you use your star power?
-You have stars here. Why didn't you use your star power?
-Marilu's face is very familiar,
and I think putting her face in front of the ad would bring that last connection.
Well, we did use Marilu's voice.
-There's plenty of commercials with the voice of a celebrity.
-But nobody really knows Marilu's voice.
I'm really sticking by what we did.
-I think it's really good work.
-Having said that, Lennox,
I know who you are, but not everybody knows, particularly women,
and so I think it could have been enhanced by a little caption there -
"Lennox Lewis, heavyweight champion of the world."
I've walked down a few streets of New York with Lennox Lewis.
-Everybody knows who he is.
-You're wrong about that.
Let's get down to decision time.
The executives of Pedigree felt that both teams really worked hard,
but they really loved the ad from one team.
And the ad they loved...
They thought it was terrific.
Pedigree felt that Hydra did the better ad.
-I disagree with them.
-Nely, it doesn't matter.
-No, you're right.
It wasn't my decision, but I agree with it. I agree with it.
I thought they really did a great job.
I think using Trace and that incredible voice of this guy was genius.
Now, listen, congratulations, Hydra. Two wins in a row.
Go back to your war room. Have fun. Congratulations.
So far, ladies, it's not looking so good.
You guys got to understand, they can't touch us.
-We smashed them.
-Yeah, did them again, guys.
By the way, boys, puffing again. Yay! HE CHEERS
Congratulations, guys. Great job.
One, two, three...Hydra!
-The client thought you had too many dogs.
-We did our homework.
We really did our job. I guarantee you, we worked harder than they did.
I do think that you spent a lot of time preparing.
The only thing I was worried about in the editing room was whether
you had enough time to actually execute your vision.
The voice-overs, your voice was great, but I don't recognise your voice. I recognise your face.
I don't recognise your voice.
The voice-overs, the first voice-over was terrible!
Who directed the voice-overs? Who was the person in charge?
-I was the person in charge of the voice-overs.
-That's not good.
You could have used your own voices.
My voice has an accent.
No, your voice maybe we won't use, OK? In all fairness, unless we're looking at going international.
But I think you went overboard.
Even in your presentation, you come up with, "We have a radio ad for you, we have an internet ad."
They didn't ask for that. And by the way, everybody, Terry,
Ivanka, myself, we really liked the other commercial better.
The ad was so beautiful with Lennox. He looked so natural.
You couldn't have picked a better actor no matter where you went.
Hey, big man! You're the new Marlon Brando!
Nely, you've been very quiet, but you were the Project Manager, so...
You know, I think Marilu and I really worked on the creative.
I think we did a really good job.
Obviously, it didn't work. I have to take responsibility.
Nely, you were very carried away at the presentation.
You just kept going and going and nobody could breathe.
-Jennie, what did you do?
-I was in charge of research, the client, and taking care of the talent.
If you were me, who would you fire?
I don't know. We worked so hard together as a team.
It would be either...
..maybe Nadia or Carol.
I just don't think Nadia was given a specific task.
Why Carol? Carol had nothing to do with this one. Maybe that's why.
-So, Carol, who would you fire?
-I would think Nadia.
-Because the people weren't fed when we got to the location.
-Nadia, how do you respond?
-That's not true because we got to the studio,
and the first thing I did, I got a menu and I ordered for everybody.
I mean, you could more blame Marilu for directing an incorrect concept.
Nely, you know that you're going to bring back two people.
Somebody's going to be fired.
I feel badly. The women are getting beaten quite badly, quite handily.
I'm going to bring back Nadia and I'm going to bring back Carol, even though I hate to, but...
So Nadia, Carol, everyone out, but you're coming back with Nely. Thank you.
-Ivanka, what do you think?
-I think it's interesting.
I think that Carol shouldn't be here.
I can't decide between Nely or between Nadia.
-Terry, what do you think?
-First of all, I agree with Carol.
I don't understand why she's here. And Nadia was a world champion. Maybe the best gymnast ever.
Where's her competitive spirit firing up and showing leadership here?
My businesses are run by me. We have a lot of heads here.
A lot of women are heads of their own business, and that makes a huge difference.
But the guy who wants the biggest light has to take the biggest responsibility.
Nely, you have to be a bit embarrassed by what's taken place.
This is your thing. You do reality shows. You do videos.
You know what I think, truthfully?
I was too ambitious in trying to do great work.
-I wanted to outdo myself.
-Do you think you should be fired?
I think that I should take responsibility for my actions.
Nely, it doesn't really sound like you're giving us any reason not to fire YOU, in a lot of ways.
I don't understand. You brought Carol back. I don't get Carol.
I do get Nadia, to a certain extent. Why Carol?
Well, I had to bring two people back.
But Marilu should have been back with you, not Carol.
-Carol, you're not going to be fired unless something crazy happens.
-But she shouldn't be here.
-Can I say something?
-Nadia, go ahead.
-We went the wrong direction, and I mentioned that many times.
-Whose fault is that?
-It's hard to say that's somebody wrong.
-It's not hard to say.
You know whose fault. Whose fault is it?
If we go the wrong direction, it's the producer, so...
Meaning the Project Manager?
Carol, do you think Nadia could lead a team?
I...I don't think so.
I found that she didn't have any contingency plans.
Nadia, do you think you could be a Project Manager?
It's unbelievable to me because I watched you win the Olympics.
-You're highly competitive. You're this incredible person.
-I like to win.
You don't have to convince me cos I know a lot about sports and about athletes and about everything.
If I don't know what I'm supposed to do, I step back.
Sometimes you have to say, "I'm not being told what to do. This is how I make myself an asset to my team."
-But I always said that we should use the celebrity from the beginning and nobody listened.
-Did she say that?
We did decide to use Marilu and when we were in the editing room, what Marilu shot didn't work.
Why isn't Marilu back here, then?
She was the director of a failed deal, right?
Marilu is not, in a team, the weakest link.
Why should I keep you versus Nadia?
Because I'm exceptional.
I said that if we're going to lose it's because we didn't use a celebrity.
-That's a big statement.
-After we shot it.
-After we shot?
-Did you say it before you shot?
-No, after we shot.
Well, that doesn't do any good. What good does it do? It's over.
Nadia, do you think you have the ability to lead?
-They both say you can't.
-I can, but I wasn't given a chance yet.
But do you want a chance?
Did you want to be the leader of this task?
-Of this one?
I would've done everything athletic because this is what I know.
Well, athletic, unfortunately, at a certain level, ends.
And I mean that with the greatest respect because very few people can lead themselves.
Most people are losers, you know. I know a lot of people.
Most people are losers. You're a winner. Nadia, why should I keep you versus Nely?
-Well, um, she...
-Come on, Nadia. Come on, you got to...
This is no longer a gymnasium. This is now a boardroom.
Look, look. First of all, here's the problem I have.
I think Nely has tremendous ability. She was, like, the star of the team.
Carol, you would say it. Everybody.
They just think she was great. And I think she had a very, very bad day.
As far as Nadia is concerned,
I think you're an amazing leader of yourself, and I think
that's the ultimate tribute, if you want to know the truth.
I don't see you being able to lead the team.
So, look, I think you are extraordinary.
I am a huge fan of yours.
I watched you win the Olympics. I watched you win so many contests.
I love you, but, Nadia, you're fired.
-Thank you very much. Thank you.
My two little bees.
You're the mama bee.
-That was tough.
-That was as tough as it gets, but you made the right decision.
I don't think I should've been fired because I could've been a good asset to the team.
I was playing for The Special Olympics International.
I'm disappointed, but I know that everything that's going
to be won here is going to go to some other charity.
