-Gene saved Nely and killed himself.
'..after three straight losses, team Empresario was desperate for a win.'
I can't remember ever losing three times in a row.
'Once again, the celebrities were out to upstage each other.'
You are going to be selling tickets to Broadway plays.
'With Marilu Henner in charge, the women open their Rolodexes.'
I'm just going to start calling the world here.
'Meanwhile, tensions between Piers and Vinny came to a head.'
Just hand me another copy of the rules.
I thought you wanted to calm down.
That's all I asked you for.
-We're not fighting today, Piers.
-I'm not the problem.
I'm not going to be a bouncer in this thing.
-'When the celebrities hit the streets...'
-Broadway show tickets!
Two for Curtains.
'..Marilu called on her Broadway family.'
David Hyde Pierce!
'And Vinny ran a family of his own.'
In my world, you have a boss, and you have your soldiers.
Let's get organised.
Not that I'm saying I like the mafia. I'm saying it works.
-'But in the boardroom, the men edge the women out yet again.'
Ivanka, how did Hydra do?
-Hydra raised 33,310.
'And Vinny reaped the benefit of Hydra's win.'
Well, Vinny, let me just tell you, we're giving 50,000 to your charity.
The money that you'll give me goes to the Lustgarten Foundation in Mitchell Berke's name.
Thank you very much.
'Then it was back to business.'
I'm a little embarrassed for the women.
This is now four weeks.
We're getting used to this.
'Marilu made a case for herself as a leader.'
You know I've been working every task wearing too many hats.
'And while Carol was fending off an attack from Omarosa...'
No-one can make you feel inferior unless you allow them to do so.
This is our group, and she's eating it up from the inside out.
'It was Jennie Finch who was clearly out of her element.'
It's such a harsh, nasty environment, and I'm not used to that.
And you shouldn't get used to it. But Jennie, for my purpose, you're fired.
So, who do you think will get fired, girls?
Marilu or Carol.
-God, I hope it's Carol.
-I've been after Carol for three weeks.
I prefer Jennie any day of the week to Carol.
Jennie is a sweetheart and a hard worker.
-She's a better person.
-She's a better person.
I'm hoping, just hoping, that Carol is the one who gets fired tonight.
Why do you hope it's Carol?
You know what? It's personal. She's a twit. I don't like twits.
Everybody says business isn't personal, but business is always personal,
and I want to see her go.
She just doesn't fit in, and she does not deserve to be here.
'I can stand up for myself. I'm a frickin' New Yorker.'
'I can't believe it. I'm shocked and disappointed.
'Jennie Finch goes down, and I'm going to really miss her,'
but everybody has to go at one point in this process.
As long as it's not me - oh, well.

So, you know I'm doing this thing for Donald Trump, The Apprentice.
And what happens is they get a project manager and you lead the team, and if your team wins,
Donald gives you money for charity, so this whole thing's for charity.
'I was able to raise 50,000 for the Lustgarten Foundation for pancreatic cancer.
'Mitchell Berke was a very dear friend of mine.'
He was my daughter's stepfather and passed away recently from pancreatic cancer.
'My ex-wife, Nancy Berke, will be very, very happy when she gets this check.'
How much money do you think would be a nice donation for your charity?
-Every little bit helps.
-Well, on behalf of Donald Trump, I have a check for you.
-Do you really?
It's not big.
10 would make me happy. This is for you, Nancy, from me for Mitchell.
Wow. Are you kidding?
50,000? You won 50,000?
I can't even describe how great it is.
Mitchell died two years ago of pancreatic cancer,
'and I wanted to do something - it's such a terrible disease.'
And Vinny just, he just blew me away today.
He really blew me away.
-So, Empresario, you have one last chance.
This is it.
After that, I'll have to give you some help from one of these wonderful men.
All right, let me give you some good news. Tito won't be with us this week.
He's at a fight. So, that evens out the teams at five and four,
which is better than six and four, so your competition's a little bit less than you would have thought.
I'd like to suggest that Carol be your project manager this time. Can you handle that, Carol?
-Is the team OK with that?
-Let's see if she can do a little bit better.
Fellas, do you know who your project manager will be?
We'd like to pass the torch on to Piers.
Well, Piers has done very well. I mean, you've done very well.
You've been a star so far, Piers. I'm very proud of you.
With all these big, strong athletes and great actors, you've been a star,
-so congratulations on the job you're doing. So, you'll be the project manager?
We're standing in Macy's.
This is the largest department store in the world, and it's a great store.
It's something very special, and a company that's very special,
and I'm sure you've all heard of it, cos it's hot as a pistol, is Crocs.
It's the fastest growing footwear company anywhere in the world.
They are doing unbelievably.
And they're doing an awareness campaign.
With us are the cofounder and the CEO,
Duke Hansen and Ron Snyder from Crocs.
So, Ron, tell us about your campaign and what you're looking for.
Your task today is to create an awareness campaign
for a new programme we're calling Soles United,
whereby we're bringing in old Crocs, recycling them,
and making them into new shoes for people in need around the world.
We would like you to create an in-store receptacle bin to collect used Crocs.
We'll take those shoes, recycle them, make new shoes to donate around the world.
The Crocs executives will judge the campaign and determine the winner.
Don and Ivanka will be my eyes and ears.
Do a really terrific job for a really terrific company. Do well.
-Bring them out of oblivion, Carol.
-We'll bring ourselves together, Mr Trump.
-OK, let's see. Go ahead.
I think we go simple, direct, and from the heart.
This is really a heart campaign.
'Our task is to create a receptacle bin for Crocs for their Soles United campaign.'
People donate their used Crocs, Crocs recycles, and then they donate a pair to people who are in need.
The three keywords are "brand messaging", "creativity" and "overall design".
So, that's our three points. That's it.
From a business standpoint, one of their biggest branding things is the shoe itself.
You don't have a logo that's separated from the product.
They love using their shoe.
What they want to see is a bin that's effective.
'Four losses in a row. The guys like to call it a slaughter'
and it was demoralising my team, so we had a lot to overcome.
The lack of confidence, the fracturing of our team,
we had to overcome all that to unite as a group.
If we don't win this, I have to take a bullet.
Yay! This is a fun project!
-What a beautiful room.
-Wait, wait, wait.
What are you all doing here?
Thanks, girls. Like that idea!
You can't be here. That is appalling! Jeepers.
-We're right next door. We got to be quiet.
They're right next door, so we have to keep our voices down.
The most important thing is brand messaging and creativity, right?
We know the campaign is Soles United, OK?
Piers, these are comfortable, man. Wow!
They're comfortable, and they send a message about you.
You've got "sole". We focus on Lennox again. He's a global icon,
and, by the way, boxing has always been, from Muhammad Ali on.
OK, I want to tell y'all something.
Wear them. Share them.
I like that.
sitting in the corner, quietly, came up with the knockout slogan.
-I get it.
'If I was at Crocs and I heard,'
"Wear them. Share them," I would scream, "Hallelujah!"
So, the rest of the challenge is no longer as important.
-Wear them. Share them. It works, right?
-I just heard them talking out there.
OK, guys, we have to bear in mind they could be standing outside our room. It's deliberate.
-Wear them. Share them? They're going to flip out.
It's frickin' genius!
-Don't worry about it. They got nothing.
'The girls' team couldn't stop themselves. They were standing outside,'
listening in on what we were doing, so they were spying.
Vinny, I have an idea for you. I want you to stand outside. Listen to them.
-I can't do that.
-You can, mate. It's called spying.
-You want me to go rat?
-Stand outside till I instruct you to come back in, please.
I got to look like I'm doing something out there.
-Take your coffee. Read a paper. You are my Luca Brasi.
-I got to be doing something.
I've told you're too irritating, and I've ordered you out.
-You an actor?
-Say, "Get the
-out of here."
-Hey, hey, Vinny!
-Get out of here!
-I'm tired of you
-and I'm going outside, and I'm reading the
-Is that for real?
Get out, all right? And stay out! Get out!
'In business, if you get whacked by an opponent, you should whack them back
'as hard as you can,'
so Vinny and I created an argument
that was entirely fictitious, which ended up
with us screaming at each other and me ordering him
'out of the room, which I've wanted to do all week, so it was quite satisfying.'
That arrogant English bastard just chased me out of the damn boardroom!
And I'm tired of this stuff.
I'm tired of it, Stephen!
We're in a place of business, and we're representing a company.
'When we walked into the war room, the first thing out of Piers's mouth was,
'"Vinny, I want you to go spy on the girls." The project manager gave me an assignment,'
and I followed through. Just like if the captain of the ship told me to do something, you follow through.
-What's the matter?
-I can't work for Piers.
If you girls need help, I'd love to work with you today.
-Can we meet on it? Can you give us a second?
-Yeah, all right, OK.
-What are we going to do about Vinny?
-I think we take him, we need the resources,
and if I had to work for Piers, I'd be cutting my freaking throat with this Mr Trump pen.
-I asked the girls if they want me to work for them.
-And they're voting on it.
So go back in and tell your boss.
-You think this is a setup?
No, I... No, I think it's real.
The girls want him to go work with them.
He's a good actor!
Because they think you guys are in a fight, but we all know that it's all a big laugh.
-They're so serious about it.
-It's up to us.
-Yes, take him.
I think he's a good guy. We need the help.
-As long as he can't go back.
-Yeah, that's the only criteria.
-Great, take him.
We made a group decision, and then I went and hired him.
-Work for us.
-OK, Carol, thank you.
Mate, if you want to work for them, you work for them.
-It's called disloyalty where I come from.
-It's not called disloyalty.
-It is, mate.
-Piers, the girls really want me to work for them.
-Come here, Vinny.
'I think the part with Vinny, how we acted it out and caused the big fuss,'
was a joke, but, you know, they really ate it up,
and they took him in, and I was kind of shocked.
(Listen to me very carefully. I want you to infiltrate their camp.)
-That's what I'm going to do.
-(Then come back and tell us everything.)
-Don't worry about it.
-Vinny, get out!
We're finished, mate, we're finished!
Donald Trump said, "You girls have one more chance
"to show the women of America you can do this without the men."
And then the first chance they got, they took one of the men, and I think that was a disaster for them,
because he will see that as a weak and pathetic action by four strong,
opinionated, independent women who should have known better.
It's all a bit embarrassing.
What we have to do is we have to come up with the big idea.
-What happens to the shoe?
-They recycle them, and then it goes back to someone else.
Explain that as simply as possible.
Vinny came over and said, "I'm really angry at Piers,
"I can't stand him and I want to see you girls win."
'So everybody goes, "Look, we're understaffed, what's the big deal? Let's get him to help us."'
It's kind of a no-brainer.
-We have to have a buzz statement, we have to have a statement.
-If we want to do something just so, so simple,
what it basically comes down to is sharing the love.
-"Soles United, share the love."
-Direct to the point.
I love this, I love it a lot.
That's the feeling we're trying to evoke in people.
-What is that? What's that?
-Share the love.
-Share the love.
-Soles United, share the love.
'The truth of the matter is I was sent to be a rat. Piers told me to do the job.'
I'm in with the girls, I'm infiltrated with the girls.
'I was doing my job as an informer.
'That's what my assignment was, and I'm good at it.'
-How about a Miss USA with a Croc on a leash?
-On a leash?
-Why put a Croc on a leash?
-Miss USA is walking him, she's universal.
-But you haven't used your celebrity status yet.
-What would your idea be, Vinny?
-I think, Carol, it's time for you to step up, as your celebrity status,
put yourself on the box, on the dispenser.
-We'll go a full campaign, and you'll win one tomorrow.
Use Carol in the campaign.
'When Vinny came on board, I think he kind of fell in love with us.'
He gave us great ideas, he was the one that said,
'"Let's make sure we use Carol, and this is what I think Carol should do."'
-I think we should go very simple.
This is what they use to advertise. I'm using my orange because it's so bright.
We make a big Croc that stands up like this, the opening is already intuitive, it's right here.
The actual receptacle is the Croc, so even if this is set up on a street corner or anywhere,
you get the advertising of the Croc and you get to understand the campaign. That's my pitch.
-I like the idea, for sure.
-I love the idea.
'I wanted the shape of our receptacle to be a freestanding Croc.
'Vinny made the suggestion that Carol be the spokesperson for
'the campaign, and Marilu Henner came up with "Share the love."'
Vinny, we got your back, no worries.
You know, we were really working hard, and surprisingly getting along very well.
Carol is a really smart cookie, and I'm surprised to say that,
because I've been calling her a twit forever.
And Carol is a strong project manager.
I have to tell you, I was very pleased with her progress.
Guys, by 1pm,
we have to give the guys who are designing the actual bin our design.
Now, let's just think about this. Wear them. Share them.
What about a picture of me putting in shoes in the bin and...
Wait a second! Guys, you know what? Listen, is it you just standing with the Crocs?
Could I finish with my thought?
Me putting shoes in a bin and on the other side of that picture...
-I like this idea.
-..poor people getting the shoes.
My idea for this is evolving into this, right?
Is that we have Lennox and you're holding two enormous Crocs.
Oh, I love that!
I love it.
I was aware that the Lennox thing might be getting a little bit tired.
'Having said that, you have treat each challenge as a totally fresh task,
and each company we're dealing with doesn't know we've done it before.
It's Lennox Lewis, the world heavyweight champion of the world
with these massive Crocs because he's got massive feet, and it's "Wear them, share them."
Lennox is more appropriate to be used on this challenge than any of the others.
Stephen, stop taking pictures for a second, man. We can do that.
If I'm going over to that place at noon, I got to know what to tell this guy.
-You got it.
-So what I want to do, what I want to suggest is you maximise the allowable height..
-Which is six foot.
-and then you put the logo there, you make the little hinge with the mouth, you throw the shoes in.
On the back side is this...
-'It was a very simple'
construction job, which we thought was the best way to go,
something that would be
not that expensive and be something that would be easy to move.
That's why we came up with the bin that we did.
It's a square, front-flat bin.
OK. We're getting somewhere, guys.
I like this, I like this.
Trace, great, great idea.
What I really like is the big thing of Carol dropping the shoe in the thing!
Oh, that's huge! That is huge.
It's hard to give away something you love.
-That is huge.
-Like, as a supermodel, giving away her Croc...
I'm putting my shoe into the bin.
That's brilliant, it's simple. I don't want to give up my shoes.
I don't either.
'I suggested to the girls'
many great ideas, which they started to take,
and I started to realise that Piers should have never asked me,
a man of my intelligence, to stoop myself to be a Sammy Gravano.
The photographer is coming to shoot me here?
Nely's going to be working with the design team.
And then you and I are going to work with the construction.
I was put in charge of construction, because I like that anyway.
'I wanted to get out there as soon as possible, so I said,
'"Vinny, come with me, we'll be the two that will go down to the warehouse."'
Chad, I'll have to call you back, we've got a bad connection our end.
He's dialled off.
-Marilu, are you guys ready to go?
-We're ready to go. OK, Vinny, go.
Yeah, Chad, please.
Vinny has the laptop, and I've got everything in it that you need.
-OK, hold on one second.
'Vinny Pastore is one of the greatest guys in the world,
'but when he started sending information
'about what they were doing to us, that's cheating in my mind.'
Go pick that up. I'm not picking that up.
I think that God is watching us all,
and as a result of that, I won't compromise who I am.
You got two, go.
That's enough. OK?
Oh, dude! Vinny wrote this.
I don't like this, I don't like this.
"Share the love" is what they're doing. They're going to use Carol to front their ad, OK?
A large cut-out of Carol Alt.
I don't like this! This is wrong!
This is very wrong!
'The whole exchange with Vinny initially was a practical joke.'
It then snowballed into another situation,
'where he started sending information about what they were doing.
'That's cheating in my mind.'
For me, it wasn't cool.
-OK, this is getting to everybody.
-That's enough. I don't want Vinny doing that any more.
It doesn't matter, who cares?
We're smarter than that, we've already kicked their ass, please. We don't need to do that.
Just because suddenly you've worked out that you don't look great.
'Stephen Baldwin was unspeakably hypocritical
'when it came down to the Vinny operation, because after a while he had worked out'
it didn't make him look that great, as a man who runs a ministry,
to be doing a form of "cheating," as he saw it.
You've just thought it doesn't look great for you
that we've got a rat in their lair. My view is they started it.
That's fine, but I don't want him bringing their ideas into our room.
We don't even care about their ideas.
We've got our own ideas, man.
-But I don't like that part of it, I'm just telling you.
-All right, you're off the hook.
'Piers really showed some colours,
'particularly in this task, that I... You know, I wasn't comfortable.'
This guy is... He's, uh...
really got his own way of doing things, and I don't agree with them.
"Soles United, wear them, share them and be a champ."
Where's Vinny? Oh, there you are. Come on, Vinny. Let's go.
-Come on, babe.
-I got everything.
I was asked to do what I was asked to do, and that was to be a spy.
Are you glad to be with us?
Yeah, it's fun.
'And between the time I was in there'
and the time we left to go to Brooklyn,
'I started to say to myself, "Why am I doing this?"
-'And I started to realise that the girls really need a win and that Piers is nothing but a
so I started to have a change of heart.
-I am going to tell you something right now.
-Piers made a decision to make me be a rat, to go and spy on you.
He said to me, quote-unquote, "Go be my Luca Brasi."
-Do you remember The Godfather?
-And they sent Luca Brasi
-over to go work with...
-Check it out, right.
-What did they do to him?
-And he was sleeping with the fishes.
-I'll tell you something.
-Maybe I sent a couple of signals over there.
But it's over, it's over.
I told Marilu, "I'm a rat."
I said, "But I'm not a rat no more. I'm on your side now."
-So that's what I decided to do, OK?
'Well, Vinny is, like, a big blustery guy,'
you never know whether he's telling you the truth,
you never know whether he's lying or not.
He thinks he's still on The Sopranos!
-You can't tell none of the other girls what I told you.
-You can't, because you don't know.
-Vinny, the Italian promise, it's like...
Marilu's Italian, she understands that. She knew I flipped.
OK, Trace, Lennox, you guys are going to have to go down now to Brooklyn.
Trace is going to be the guy that makes that design work.
We're rolling, rolling!
'Me and Trace had to go to Brooklyn'
and meet with the designers down there
and come up with exactly what we wanted to achieve.
Let me ask you a question, this image is how big right now, four inches?
At the moment, right now.
-How's it going, guys?
-Ivanka, would you like a seat?
-I'd love one, thank you.
-How are you today?
-I'm very well, thank you.
-So where we are, a familiar place...
-Tell her what Trace came up with.
-Well, it was great. Trace had been quietly doing what Trace does.
He's sat saying nothing, then came up with a piece of genius -
"It's wear 'em, share 'em."
I think it's a great slogan, so hopefully this all comes together for you guys.
-Well, where's the rest of the team?
-Well, it's a bit of a long story.
We were put deliberately next to each other, clearly a rather
Machiavellian plot created by your father to inspire...
-..to inspire a certain added tension to the two teams.
So we discovered the girls listening in to our conversations, right?
So we created a false argument between Vinny and myself,
and Vinny was left outside, apparently ostracised by our team.
The girls heard all this, so they came and grabbed Vinny.
He then became, I think in mafia terms, you'd use the word "rat"
and has been quietly passing us back all...
-I'm shocked that none of the girls had thought that this was what you'd would be doing.
-It's very weird.
This is straight out of the Omarosa playbook.
For her not to think that the guys are setting her up is... It's really beyond me.
-I have nothing to do with the sabotage.
-He didn't like it.
He feels that we've compromised our integrity. My view is that...
Do you think it's right in business to be sabotage-ey?
I'm sort of into sabotage, but I think sometimes it can hurt you.
Like, I don't mind.
I was a little shocked to learn that Ivanka Trump
was a little bit OK with slight sabotage.
It sometimes works and it sometimes backfires, it really just depends.
-If it all goes pear-shaped for us, I'll take the rap.
-He's not good for the women.
If I were them, for obvious reasons, I wouldn't have taken him.
I'm a little disappointed in Empresario.
It seems weak for taking Vinny and I worry for them,
especially because Hydra seems to be doing a very good job under the leadership of Piers.
I think he's been a leader from the get-go. Their slogan is very good,
and I have to credit Trace for that. Wear them, share them.
It's simple, it's to the point,
and I think the executives are going to respond well to it.
The Trumps will admire that, mate. It's a badge of honour.
I understand why you can't be seen to be quite so devious,
but it's not a problem I face on a daily basis.
-This is the way we want it.
-This is going to have a logo across the top.
This'll be the front of the box.
What we hoped to do was somehow use this logo right here as the deposit,
-the Croc drop, I like to call it.
-Let me tell you, I like this idea.
-It's a start.
This is going to be a standalone shoe, so even if it's this big,
this much in relief...
It doesn't have to go in this way. It can go in this way.
We're in Brooklyn. We've got a great concept.
I'm hoping that the girls win and I'll be able to face the music,
because I've been through tougher "beep" than this before
and I know how to swim.
What are you doing here? You're the ugliest woman I've ever seen.
-What are you doing with the women?
-The truth is, and tell your father,
I'm here because I want to see the girls win.
That's the truth. I don't care what anybody else thinks.
I think you also want to see Piers fired, possibly.
Which do you want to see more - the girls win or Piers lose?
Piers doesn't have the common sense to realize there's a difference
between the characters I play on television
and what I can do in this corporate world.
I'm not Pussy in real life, I'm Vinny Pastore.
Give me your plan.
OK, this is our plan, it's going to work like a mailbox.
Let's say it's standing alone,
-and when you put your shoes in, you push the thing down...
..and it accepts the shoes.
So, we have this ad campaign where we're going to have Carol
with one shoe, kind of, on her heart and one dropping into the bin,
and it's "Soles United".
This is not Carol now, this is a cut-out of Carol.
Six foot tall.
"Soles United, share the love."
The concept the women have is really good.
It's definitely catching, it's pretty mechanical.
I hope that they can get this together in time.
Naturally, with someone like Carol Alt as part of their team
and to be their spokesperson,
that's a much more attractive option than the men have,
so they can finally play up on their celebrity because of their looks.
I think that will really play out well for them.
Is this a sabotage move, Vin?
Is this a sabotage move?
Like, as if they weren't losing badly enough,
you have to rub it in a little bit more?
What if I told you the truth?
-Would you promise that you would not tell anybody except your father?
No, it's the total reverse.
They think it's a sabotage move.
Yeah, thank you.
I want the girls to win, I want your father to be proud tomorrow.
I think they got a little too cocky this morning,
and they said, "Go and destroy the girls."
I said, "Yeah, sure."
Vinny pulled me aside when I questioned him,
I think he was surprised I figured that out.
He said, "No, no, I'm telling the men that,
"but I'm acting like a double agent here,
"I want to see the women win. I don't like Piers."
He's taking a big chance, but it could pay off
if he gets rid of Piers.
Am I putting my head on the chopping block?
Yeah, and I'm even getting a little nervous talking about it.
But that's up to your father to decide.
-Tomorrow your father's Don Corleone.
-Yes, he is.
Irrespective of, you know, Vinny's involvement right now,
I think an extra man on Empresario is going to help them
with the manpower that they need to pull off a win.
Perhaps the lack of manpower on the men's side
will really sway things in their favour.
Be well, guys.
This is what I think,
listen to me...
Vinny still over there?
Vinny's still over there.
We just got a spy in the other camp.
It's all good.
You don't agree with it?
You didn't disagree with it.
I did not say anything.
I didn't say anything.
I should have protested, I didn't, I should have.
I didn't really like that whole scheming thing,
the spy in the other camp.
I think it's a little underhanded.
You know, who's to say, you know?
Piers could have a visit from karma.
She could be unhappy with this whole situation.
MOBILE RING TONE
TRACE: 'Hey, man.'
There's no reason for me and Lennox to even be here.
The dude's built the box, there's nothing else I can do.
-This is not where we need to be.
'The boys got nothing to do.'
Get them to come back.
Come on back to the war room.
What other art is there?
We're in a great position.
I think I've done a pretty good job.
I've done the same job for the last two or three challenges,
pretty well run the creative side with Stephen.
We work very well as a team
whilst detesting the very sight of each other for most of the day.
But it's what I call creative tension between two very different personalities.
Through all this creative tension comes some brilliant ideas.
Seriously, you and I have to start a company together.
-We'll make trillions.
-I agree, mate.
Crucially, we'd always get stuff done,
which you could not say about most of the others.
You know what I think now, already?
You and I could get any challenge done between us, right?
If you put Lennox and Tito, or any other combination,
they wouldn't be able to.
That's the truth.
I certainly need you in the future for one challenge, Piers,
and that's for you to give your life to Jesus.
-You think that day'll ever come?
-Oh, I'm a believer, mate.
-Yeah, I'm a Roman Catholic from Ireland.
I was educated by a group of nuns,
so don't start preaching to me, preacher boy.
I'm just trying to be nice.
I respect him for his faith.
I respect him for being a born-again Christian.
I could just do with less preaching,
particularly when the behaviour doesn't live up to it.
You're suggesting I need to find something - I've always had it.
You're the one whose life was so sickeningly depraved
you had to somehow claw out of the abyss
-by finding something decent with your life.
-It's always been part of my life.
You see, the weird thing about God is how he works in mysterious ways.
We both, presumably, said the same prayer that we win The Apprentice.
And we both believe that prayer's been answered.
Now, one of us is going to be massively mistaken.
Wow, that was big, dude.
That was big.
That was big.
Got it, laughing smile.
There, that's nice.
Let me see.
I think you need a bigger smile, because, body-wise, you're perfect.
What we heard from the client was that they wanted an incentive
around the donating of old Crocs shoes to be recycled
to be given to needy people.
-Big smile. Laughing smile.
Look, they're shooting Carol's photo.
Watch, come on.
Smile, that's it...
The centre of our campaign was the receptacle for recycling your shoes.
It was a giant six foot shoe.
Pretend there's a shoe there, there's the opening mouth.
The logo will be right about where your head is.
We created an ad campaign around that,
and the line was, "Share the love".
There, I like that angle.
Nice, keep that, keep that, keep it.
That's good, I like that.
We're not trying to be funny, go ahead and do your thing.
Being a model and doing a photo shoot is so second nature to me,
I don't even think about it.
I don't think about who's there, who's watching.
The guys were trying to unnerve me - you can't unnerve me in my element.
Yes, what would you like?
Get the hell...
-Wait, I have a question.
I knocked on the door, what are you talking about?
What are you taking pictures of Carol for?
Is she going to be dropping a green boot?
You know what you should do?
You should share the love.
How do you know about my thing?
Share the love, drop the green boot, yeah?
OK, you think you're so funny?
OK, I'm going to go in here and see what you guys are doing,
Share the love and drop that green boot very cleverly.
It's OK, because I know about your frickin' crocodile box.
That was adorable!
Remember, remember, share the love.
-next door know every single thing we're doing.
I think Vinny is a snitch, they know everything.
He says, "You're sharing the love."
Well, we feel Vinny's a corporate spy,
because the guys came over and they knew our entire slogan.
It's disappointing that the guys are playing a game
within the game within a game.
Share the love.
I didn't want Vinny in there the whole time, because I wanted
to enjoy the moment of them discovering that Vinny was a rat.
And then we have to create the recycle thing...
Did you see her face when I said, "Share the love"?
-Look at the pitch.
-Mate, I know, but did you see her face?
What do you call me? A shallow little Liberace?
Literally one of the best moments I've had in my life.
Seeing Nely's face...
You're a deeply ill Hannibal Lecter.
I've got to be honest, part of it was just pure humour on my part.
Why would you trust a guy who has come out of The Sopranos...
They know everything, so somebody's telling them something.
I think corporate espionage is a copout,
and if Piers really sent him to spy on us,
I think that's really evil and dark and he should be punished.
I think if he really did this, he has to be fired, he has to go.
Have you just lynched Vinny?
Vinny...needs to get out of Brooklyn!
They know everything we're doing.
He says, "Well, you're shooting Carol and share the love."
'Hey, Marilu, hang on a second.'
Can you please get out of our room?
Why are you guys in here?
Close the door.
Out, Baldwin, what the hell?!
-I'm going to kick your butt!
-That is no way to share some love.
Here's the thing, keep an eye on Vinny,
we think he's giving the guys our information.
They know everything, they came over and said, "Share the love, baby."
Are you telling them "share the love"?
-Play the game, keep going.
-I didn't know you were saying all that.
OK, I think we have a double agent here, but he is swearing to me...
You're not supposed to tell her that, because it's going to get out.
You've just got to tell her to trust what we're doing.
Tell her to play the game.
Just play the game, keep our eye on the ball, we have a great campaign.
-Keep an eye on him, OK?
-I will. OK. Bye.
Vinny is so confusing and such a blowhard at different times,
saying he's doing this, he's doing that.
But it seems like noise to me. This is not about high school.
It's really about keeping your nose to the grindstone
and getting the job done.
So, how am I sabotaging you?
-I don't want to talk about any of those things.
-She just said it.
-I didn't say it.
-I don't care. They're ten steps behind us.
-Let's just keep moving forward, OK? That's all.
-Good. All right, good.
Mamacita. So, let me tell you the latest,
so you're up to date on everything. Vinny told them everything. They came in here
-and said, "Oh, share the love." But I didn't...
-He's a snitch?
-There's nothing worse than a snitch.
You do realise that I have to destroy Vinny? He's betrayed us.
-Yeah, he betrayed us.
-He betrayed our trust and our loyalty.
-I know. We took him in.
-What an ass
He's always talking about loyalty and trust. I want to...
I connected with Vinny. You know, he was my buddy. I can't believe it.
Vinny is a rat.
Hi! You want to talk to Vinny? Hang on.
-Vinny, I got information that you have betrayed our trust
and our loyalty, and it's unacceptable.
-That's the information you got?
-The Hydra Team knows exactly what we're doing.
You told them all of our ideas and I just want to give you a chance
to tell all of the team while we're listening if that's true or not.
Well, why don't you just trust me
and let's just keep continuing to go in the place we're going?
No. Just answer my question.
Did you tell them what we were doing, Vinny?
Did you betray our trust?
-I told Marilu I did that.
-Marilu knew that you did that?
-I told her in the van I did that.
-Wait. Let me tell you something. No.
He said that he has to play a certain game with them.
-I did not know that you told them our slogan.
-You guys, I trust Marilu.
I trust Marilu. I trust Marilu. You know what, Marilu?
-Put Vinny on the phone.
-He's right here. We're both here.
-I told her after.
-You'll appreciate this.
-We no longer need your services.
-All right, thank you.
-I just got fired by the girls.
-I cannot believe!
-What the hell?
"I got to play a game with the guys." You go play with them.
We don't need you any more. And then he's going to try to play Marilu?
Excuse me?! For a guy that was in The Sopranos and knows about loyalty,
he certainly doesn't know anything about it.
There's nothing to me that's worse than disloyalty. I think that that's evil.
If Piers and Vinny really conspired to do corporate espionage on us,
they should both be fired.
I don't want the fact that Vinny was a corporate snitch to affect us at all.
-No, I know.
-No, this whole situation is detracting from our focus.
-We got duped.
-All right, let's just move forward. Gone, he's gone.
Right now, things are looking very bleak.
Vinny betrayed our trust and, as a result,
we could be headed for another loss, and that terrifies me.
-First Piers said to me...
-"Go over and spy."
-You came over to spy.
-Here's what he said to me.
He said, "Go spy on the girls. Go be Luca Brasi."
But I am working legitimately for you guys.
In my mind, I am on your side.
I told you what happened. Did I or did I not?
-You didn't tell me that you told them our...
-I said I gave them...
You said you were going to give them a little bit of information.
That's what you said. Did you tell them that we have a big shoe?
No. I told them any information I got before we left the boardroom.
They wanted me to be a spy and I got caught, OK?
But when I got caught, I got caught as a double agent.
I got called a rat. That ain't funny,
because watch what happens to the rat.
Now the girls ain't never going to trust me again,
and I don't think the guys want me back.
I'm a man without a country. I got no place to go.
-Now you're mad at me too and you're supposed to be my friend.
-I'm disappointed in you, Vinny.
I flipped and you girls are kicking me out of here?
-They're going to kill me, man.
-That's your plight. Whatever.
They used me to sabotage the girls and then they ratted me out.
If they think it's funny, funny like how? Am I clown? Do I amuse you?
I really hope that the guys lose tomorrow
and that Piers is up there and Donald says, "Piers...
"you tried to sabotage the girls. You're fired."
I went with the girls to spy on them.
Then I realised I didn't want to do it.
But what's aggravating is
instead of me revealing all this information tomorrow
in the boardroom, Piers tells the girls
I'm spying, so now I want Piers to go home
on a ship back to Britain and the name of the ship is the Titanic.
-Who's that, Vinny?
-Yeah, it's Vinny.
Vinny. Come home, brother. Come home.
-We missed you.
-You all right?
-They convert you?
-Vinny, great job, man.
-Great job, mate.
-Is that what you have to say?
Absolutely brilliant work. Brilliant. Did they ever say anything to you?
-Listen, let me tell you something.
-Tell us. I gotta hear this.
-When the woman found out what was going on...
-What woman? Marilu?
-Marilu. Marilu, she put me out on the street.
-They called her?
She put me out on the street like a dog.
-Why did you do that?
-You do not send somebody!
-Wait a minute.
-In the real world I would not be walking back into this room?
In the real world, I would be chopped up, and I'd be
in a suitcase, and I'd be in a trunk, and I'd be going to Kuwait.
-Vinny, we're not...
-You don't turn in on your informers. Vinny.
I don't know what kind of mob movies you watch in London,
but over here, the rat gets killed.
Vinny, we weren't dealing with the Mafia. We were dealing with a bunch of female celebrities.
-I know you like to think...
-Oh, you don't know Marilu, man.
-She's not going to kill you, all right?
I knew he wasn't going to get murdered by Marilu Henner, all right?
It wasn't going to happen.
So, all this "you don't rat on a rat" stuff, I mean, please, spare me.
We're actually doing very well, guys.
I think we can have everything wrapped up by six o'clock tonight.
They started it, we finished it. They spied first, we killed them.
End of story, all right?
I subscribe to the Donald Trump view of business.
If your opponent has one good limb left, then do everything
in your power, in a business sense, to remove that last limb.
And that's my business plan. I want to win.
After the challenge, I will be charm personified to the ladies,
as I always am. I will wine and dine them,
and I will be chivalrous to the point of James Bond chivalry.
But rather like Bond, when I'm working, I work to kill.
-Sorry. Goodnight, guys.
-What is your problem?
If you want to share the love, we'll be out dining tonight.
LAUGHTER Oh, my God!
-It looks so great!
-Wow! Oh, my gosh!
-The super Croc!
-That's like a little mini version.
-Yeah. It's just a little mini thing.
-This has to totally be clean, so let's just get to work.
They'll pump up the red ones.
I think I'm more concerned about our presentation because this is to die.
They're not going to nitpick whether there's one more shoe or not.
We should think about what we're going to do now. We need time to rehearse.
Oh, yeah, yeah, for sure. This is a complicated presentation.
The way the guys handled themselves on this entire task
was appalling and we overcame huge obstacles yesterday.
But if the client doesn't like it, the client doesn't like it.
Don't bring any points that they could zap us on. Why?
We did such an amazing job. There's no reason to doubt our own work.
They're going to do that for us.
Right, chaps. Here we are.
Let's have a look. Looks good. Love the wheels. Love the Croc. Perfect.
Plants, you want plants?
I want the plants to be strategically placed, probably here.
It's all about a scene.
-Let me see. Let me see.
-Show them the sign.
-Careful, careful, careful.
-It's got to be perfect.
It's got to be perfect. Lennox, be careful. Came out well, didn't it?
I think that the product that we've come up with and the idea
and everything's great.
I do. I'm really happy about it. I think everything looks good.
They are going to love this.
-It's freakin' gorgeous!
-Why don't you try and help?
-Why don't I try to help?
-Try and help the team.
I know it's a weird concept for you, but...
-Maybe I don't feel like doing nothing no more...
-Tell you what...
..because I think what you did yesterday by sending me over
-to spy on those girls...
-..was totally uncalled for.
You're winning the hypocrite of the year award.
-You told me to do that.
-Yeah, you're the hypocrite.
-I'm the hypocrite of the year? I told Marilu I was a spy!
-At least I'm true to myself.
-Ask her. I told Marilu I was a spy and she's such a compassionate person,
she said, "Stay here and help us." D Do you really think I was going to spy on those girls for a Brit?!
-No, I didn't.
-I am not ratting on anybody.
-And I developed their concept and I hope they win...
-The best thing...
-Because I hope we lose and I hope you get fired.
I couldn't believe that Vinny was playing both sides.
I guess his motivation behind that was to make sure that Piers loses,
but he's not letting Piers down, he's letting the whole team down.
-I don't think that's the right thing he did.
-Let me tell you,
the best thing you said to me today is that you designed their concept.
-You were the creative brains behind their team?
-And I designed the logo and I also told Carol to be the spokesman,
-so if they win, it's because of me!
-Great. Great! You know what?
There's no way anyone could win with your creative brain. They couldn't.
-You don't have a creative brain.
-I don't have a creative brain?
-That's what you think of me?
That's why you used me for coffee and for being a spy.
-Because that's what you think of me.
-You are an ass
-to send me over there to spy on those girls!
-So, go and play with your box.
-Well done. You've lied to everybody.
Hey! You put me in that position.
-What a ridiculous individual.
-I'm a ridiculous individual?
Oh, Vinny Pastore the only thing he can do is go spy on the girls.
-Excuse me. I've actually had enough. You will not bully me, mate.
-Look what you did to me and the girls!
-You did it to me from day one.
-I'd like you to leave.
-I'd like you to leave.
-Thank you. You've made your point. Thank you very much, Vinny, for all your help.
-I am leaving.
I wanted that guy off the show from day one.
He's arrogant, he doesn't know how to talk to people,
and he's a controlling freak.
-Now I have no place to go.
-Tell someone who cares.
-I'm not talking to you.
I'm not talking to you, you arrogant British fart.
One word for you - ciao.
Yeah, and if I were you I'd have some chow, as well. Get that belly up a bit more.
I don't know what game he's playing. I don't know what to believe and what not to believe.
All I know is that if he's the creative genius of the girls,
as he claims, then this will be easier than I thought
and I will be astonished if we don't win.
I revealed to Nils, Nils, Piers whatever his name is, um...
because of, you know, he started.
But revealed to him what was going on through my mind
and he told me to get out.
-How are you, Donald? Can I have a word with you alone?
When I went out in the hallway, who comes off the elevator but Donald Trump.
And I said, "Donald, I got to talk to you."
-Your boy is a man without a country.
-Meaning you? Go ahead.
The girls are there and the guys are there.
I need you to make a decision.
-Do it in the boardroom.
He gave me some nice advice, "Stick around. I'll talk to you at the board meeting."
-OK. All right. Thank you, Donald.
-I love this guy.
-Good morning, Duke, Ron.
-So, let us see your presentation.
Would you give up your favourite pair of Crocs?
What if I told you that this shoe was going to a child who was going
to walk a mile for water?
Then would you give up your shoe? Would you give up your Croc?
Our idea today is called share the love,
the love you have for your Croc.
We proudly present to you the Super Croc.
First of all, we wanted you to imagine these all over the country, all over the world.
We have a handout that explains your programme
and what the company's about.
People would have the experience of coming in,
putting their Crocs, and using it as if it's a mailbox.
So they would put it in, they would lift the arm,
their Croc would fall in.
On top of that, we wanted it to be a rewarding experience.
Besides the fact that you feel so good for helping people,
you get your t-shirt, and then your message is spread on the chest
of every person who wears your t-shirt.
We wanted it to be fun, interactive, educational.
-We like giving away goodies.
-We want to share the love.
Omarosa, how come you chose Carol as opposed to yourself?
You would like to be doing this. How come you chose Carol?
I think that having a supermodel as a spokesperson is a great advantage.
She's a ten. I say I'm a nine and a half.
That's very nice that you say that. I didn't think you had that in you.
-Ron, Duke, do you have any questions?
-I think it's very well done.
I think it hit all the points. I think, so far, you're in the lead.
-That's because we went first!
-Oh, we went first?
Let's go look at Hydra's presentation. Come on. Good job.
-Oh, my God, girl, oh, my God!
-Let's see what you have.
-This is going to be a great day.
We thought very carefully about what we could give you that was great.
We've come up with three things. The first thing is a great star.
Lennox Lewis is one of the most recognisable stars in the world.
The second great thing we're going to give you is a great bin.
The third and most important thing we felt we could give you is
a great new slogan. Gentlemen...
Soles United. Wear them. Share them.
It's a good slogan.
"To be a champ, like Lennox, you need sole."
On the side, "wear them and share them".
It's all about these people wearing Crocs.
We believe the vividness of our bins will attract word of mouth.
It was word of mouth that made Crocs what it is.
We think this will get you huge chatter.
We think, though, we're going to leave you with a massive problem.
You're doing seven million pairs of Crocs a month.
We believe if you take this and you use it aggressively,
we believe that you're going to be selling 70 million a month.
The biggest problem you're going to be having is getting enough supply to meet the demand.
-Thank you very much.
-Very good. OK. Anything else?
-We look forward to the new supply problem.
Thank you very much.
-One, two, three.
-So, fellas, what do you think?
-I thought both of them were quite good.
The women were well choreographed.
I thought they did a great job of presenting.
-Very good job of presenting.
-Very good job.
And they had some really good elements.
The shoe, you know, it's an icon.
It would bring people to it, wondering what it was.
The shoe would really draw kids into the program as far as giving.
-I think it was a little bit friendlier.
-Very dynamic, yeah. Yeah.
However, the men had a very good slogan.
-The men wear them and share them.
Yeah, I think the men's slogan was strong. I like the colourful box.
Having Lennox on it is a huge plus.
What did you think Hydra did wrong?
I don't think they had as complete a campaign.
They didn't have back-up, pamphlets or t-shirts.
-The receptacle might be difficult to make.
-So, what is the end result?
Who do you like better of the two?
-The snitch has entered the room.
-What's up, Vinny?
Vinny. You wanted to tell me something before. Let's go.
Erm... Wow. They're sitting down. They're sitting down.
I'm standing back here. It looks like it's my execution today.
It is sort of interesting you don't have a seat.
It's a little bit interesting. Did you all come in together or not?
-Not with Vinny, no.
-Why? Was there a problem with Vinny?
-I heard there was a problem. Was there?
-Yeah. I asked Vinny to leave the team,
-because his behaviour was not conducive to a professional presentation.
Because he was behaving in a very erratic manner shouting,
screaming, claiming that he was now working for the girls...
then for us, then for them. I couldn't make head nor tail of it,
so we had a frank exchange of views, and I asked him to leave.
So, Vinny, what happened? Tell me. You've got your side of the story.
OK, um...yesterday, um... Pierce gave me the assignment,
-as the project manager.
-Is it Pierce or Piers?
Piers gave me the assignment, as project manager...
You don't mind being called by the wrong name,
-I don't really care
what Vinny calls me, to be perfectly honest.
..to inform, to rat on the girls
and to send back messages, which I did...
Well, the English have been doing that for years.
Now I'm in the office with the girls,
and I gave them some very, very good suggestions, which I think they
accepted, and, uh, Marilu and I were assigned to go out to the warehouse.
On the ride down the west side highway,
I told Marilu what was going on.
He told me that Piers wanted him to spy on us
but he's turned on Piers and that...
-So, he became a double agent?
-He became a double agent.
I mean, the story was so, like so crazy.
-This is both interesting and complex.
-And it's so juvenile.
-I mean, it's really juvenile.
-This is a first.
-You guys used me.
-OK, with respect...
-That's what happened.
-..the bottom line is...
-I got used, and you ratted on a rat.
OK, the bottom line is you give a rat enough rope and he hangs himself.
-And everything Vinny has now said means one thing,
-absolutely nobody would trust him again.
Stephen, what do you think?
Mr Trump, what started out in the beginning a bit of a humorous joke,
snowballed into an opportunity for us to gain information,
-An opportunity to spy on the women?
Initially, I went along with the joke of throwing Vinny out
to make a scene to distract the girls and have some fun.
Then the girls invited Vinny to join them.
No, I walked in and asked them if they needed me.
When Vinny walked in to see you,
did you find that to be a little bit strange, cos he's on the other team?
-That's not even spying. That's just walking in.
-It was completely out of the blue,
and we had so wholeheartedly embraced this task
about helping people that when we saw his distress,
we talked about it, and we said, "He's in distress. He needs help."
-Was he in distress?
-He was. He was completely freaking out.
But that's when it was still an act. I'm a little bit surprised, to be honest.
Well, wait, was the distress an act, or was he actually in distress?
Vinny, were you acting, or were you just upset about something?
It was, it was an act.
I'm just disappointed in your team, because this was your
opportunity to possibly win on your own, and by taking him in,
if you win, if you lose, yes, if you lose, you can blame Vinny.
If you win, it takes a little bit away from you,
that you felt you couldn't do it by yourself.
No, it wasn't. That never even entered into it, that we didn't feel we could do it by ourselves.
I sent out Vinny purely as a little Trojan horse.
Would you bite or wouldn't you?
And the first chance you got to take a man in to help you, you took it.
-That's not true. Come on, Piers! Espionage?
-Wait a minute.
Let me finish. Let me finish. The added benefit, to me, was it got Vinny out of my room,
because he offers us nothing as a team member.
-Omarosa, let me hear from you.
You're not a big fan of Piers, and you haven't been from the beginning.
-What do you think?
You must have been so intimidated that you'd lose as project manager, that you'd stoop so low.
-It wasn't espionage. It was sabotage.
-It's the same difference.
Wait. There's a very big difference. Espionage means we're spying to get your information.
-That's what he was doing, Piers.
-Because we think it will be useful to us.
I knew your information would be useless, because you've lost every task.
-What I wanted to do was sabotage, disrupt, unsettle.
You were next to us, and we achieved all these things.
You know, he really is English, fellas.
This is what...I tell you why.
Hey, I know a lot about the English. I happen to be part of the clan.
-But you have a lot of English stuff in you, don't you, huh?
-Very much so.
Let me remind you, ladies, you were outside our door listening in.
-I saw you.
-Wait a minute.
-What are you talking about?
-I saw you listening in to our conversations.
-That is not true.
-I could only make out shadowy figures.
-That wasn't us. That was other people.
-I knew it was you.
-That was not us.
-And Vinny confirmed to me that...
-No, I'm not backing you up in one aspect of today...
Vinny, I don't want you to back me up.
..because the first thing you said to me. You called me a fat Italian.
-I called you a very...
-You also said I said I helped the girls create their thing.
-What did you call him?
-I didn't call him a fat Italian.
-Yes, you did, and that's a racial remark.
-And the second thing he said to me...
-What did you call him?
I called him a VERY fat Italian.
OK. And the second so, be careful.
You know, there's going to be two guys following you in London now.
You know something? With respect,
you are not, sorry, you are not Don Corleone.
-Maybe I am!
-How do you know?!
-Because I've got every respect...
-You don't know who I am.
-You're not Don Corleone.
-You have no idea who I am.
-I know you're not Don Corleone.
-You have no idea.
-Look, I have no wish to prolong this.
You have no idea. So, you want to keep playing this game?
You insulted me a little too much
when you sent me out to be a rat and then turned on me.
I cared for those girls the minute I walked into that room.
Your decision was wrong.
Thank you very much. As I was saying, anyway, we saw the girls spying.
-That's not true.
-And I said, "OK, you want to start a nuclear war,
"you got to have the biggest bombs."
-But they're saying they didn't spy.
-We didn't, we were too busy.
-I tend to believe that.
-He's a liar.
-You give me your word you didn't spy?
-I swear, No.
-I don't think they would spy.
-We were too busy.
We were focused on our task.
So, somebody was looking through your door, but I don't think...
Vinny confirmed to me that they had gotten information.
No. Maybe it was Vinny. Vinny became a double agent.
-We know Vinny's cheating on everybody.
-Vinny doesn't look like this.
-Vinny's cheating on everyone.
-We know that.
-Well, maybe I came back to the room to say they were spying to screw your head up.
-Great. It doesn't screw my head up.
-Well, look what's going on today, buddy.
-You know what, buddy?
We've put on a whacking great presentation without you.
-I don't think so. I think the girls beat you out.
-Isn't this such a major distraction?
You had asked me if I believe in sabotage,
and I do, if it's well calculated
and if it can be used to further what you're trying to do, perhaps, right? If it's well done.
It seems like you took a huge risk by sending Vinny,
who you don't like, you don't trust, and obviously doesn't trust you,
-in to sabotage the women to see what would happen.
-Let me respond to you, It worked perfectly because...
Wouldn't you have preferred somebody more loyal, maybe, so at least you know they don't change teams?
No, because I knew that it would end like this.
-Piers, you don't know if you won.
-No, I don't know if I've won.
-If you lost, it didn't work perfectly.
No, because Vinny was never going to contribute to our creative process.
He hasn't done from day one.
Second fact as you can tell, there's been a total breakdown
between Vinny and I in our working relationship.
And what about the rest of the team and Vinny?
The rest of the team and I have no problem, as far as I know.
What about the rest of the team and Vinny?
-They like him, but without him, we did a great job, and I have to think about...
-We don't know that yet.
No, I don't, but I believe we did a great job, and I have confidence we did a great job,
and I believe going forward that Team Hydra will benefit
from not having this histrionic drama queen threatening to kill me
every five minutes, because I'm one of the creative forces for the team.
Trace, I feel like you are a good moral compass.
What do you think about all this?
You know, I didn't I didn't approve of the whole thing.
I thought it was kind of silly. But I didn't say anything.
I didn't protest. You know, I was kind of like Stephen.
I thought, it's just a little funny little joke for a few minutes and then we'll move on.
So, is this mostly really Piers against Vinny?
This isn't really the whole team against Vinny?
Well, that's what it turned out to be, you know?
-But they go at each other a lot, you know?
I think, fundamentally, there is a difference here in the methodology.
Our project manager in this task is somebody who has a far more
aggressive attitude about how to get things done than everybody else.
Stephen, you went along with it,
cos you came into our room and you made fun of what we were doing.
-That's where I was getting to.
-And you were like, you were baiting us.
You are Christian. I didn't expect that from you.
Nely, who did that and when and where was I?
Let me ask this, because you said he's a Christian.
So, that has to do a Christian doesn't spy?
When I found out that they had been spying on us,
-it really, like I just was very disappointed in Stephen.
-Do Christians spy, Stephen?
Well, this Christian doesn't spy, and, as a matter of fact...
-And you're a born again Christian and a very strong believer.
-..absolutely I have my own ministry.
-I'm working with kids.
-That's terrific. But do Christians spy? She's saying you're a Christian.
I can only speak for myself, sir. I'm not the judge.
OK, let's say you are the judge and you lose this task.
Who would you rather see continue on with you?
If you could only choose between Vinny and Piers,
which would you take to keep going with you?
-Ooh, Don Junior.
-That's a very good question.
It's the fairly obvious question!
If there's a rift, one of them probably has to go. Which one is it?
I would, perhaps, feel more comfortable,
if Vinny were to continue.
Erm...I'd probably keep Vinny.
-I would have to go for Piers, because it's all about winning,
and he's very strong... With a lot of the stuff he's done. He's good.
Vinny, you were going to say something?
Why did Piers tell the girls that I was an informant
while I was sitting next to Marilu Henner?
I can't understand that logic until today,
when I realised when I came into this room is he had the intentions
when he sent me over, to get me fired, and that's the game.
-And I realise the game, so I would like to say this.
-It's a game. And it's a smart game in a certain way.
-We were set up next to each other, and the most obvious trick is to send in a rat.
-So you set Vinny up?
-Yes, Mr Trump.
-Did your team set him up, or did you set him up?
I mean, I didn't share my ultimate hope, which was that Vinny and I clearly cannot work together.
Mr Trump, I would rather go home back to my family
than have this conflict.
Perhaps the girls could find it in their hearts
to show Vinny some forgiveness.
You mean take Vinny back?
I don't think it's appropriate for them to do that.
I don't think we should be putting them on the spot.
It wasn't their problem. It wasn't their fault.
I don't think we should do that to them.
They were spied on, or they were something. Something happened,
that was very different.
And Vinny, whether you like it or not, he listened to Piers.
-He didn't have to.
-But Vinny is no rat.
He was doing what his project manager told him to do.
He ended up being double rat.
-But that's the worst name to get.
-I don't know whose side Vinny's on.
In fact, Vinny, you would have preferred the women to win.
-I did want the women to win.
Well, I don't understand.
If I was in their camp...
You basically would want them to win for the following reason.
1, you like them. 2, you don't like these guys as much,
-I love these guys.
-I love these guys.
-OK, but you really hate your leader so much
you'd rather have the other team win.
That's not why I want them to win.
-I want the girls to win because they need a win.
-No, they don't.
-We want to win fair and square.
-I feel they needed a win.
-But they don't.
It would be nice if they win, but they're tough, they're strong.
I felt that what Piers did by sending me in,
he was kicking them when they were down.
Let's find out who won, OK?
The executives from Crocs thought the men were fantastic.
They really thought you did a good job.
Now, I can say it's enough with Lennox.
He's a big star, but you can't keep using him.
You'll wear out his celebrity.
People will get tired of you like they're tired of me.
-They'll say, "I can't stand this guy any more."
"I've got Trump up to the gills. I've got Lennox to the gills."
You don't want to be in the same company as me.
So I agree with the choice,
but it's probably enough.
They loved what you did.
-And they loved your display case.
-And it wasn't even a contest.
They picked you as the winner, so congratulations.
And that was a long, hard four weeks.
-Oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh!
-I have to say, I felt we won yesterday.
We overcame many obstacles as a group.
It was very important to me that our group enjoyed working together.
I think you did great, and as the winning project manager,
Crocs has agreed to give 10,000 pairs of recycled shoes
to impoverished people in Africa in your name.
-Now, you can't do better than that.
In addition, Carol, you're getting 20,000 for your favourite charity.
What is that charity? Oh, look at you, Carol.
I thought you were tougher than that. Isn't that nice?
You did a great job, and they liked your image very much.
Well done. Congratulations.
-What is your...? That's OK. Take your time.
-It's my brother's charity.
What is the charity?
It's all right. You take your time.
-The Tony Alt Memorial Fund.
-It helps children.
-We're very proud of you. You did a very good job.
I heard she was a great leader, and, folks, Omarosa said
that she was a 9.5, but Carol was a 10.
That's a big statement for Omarosa.
-I never thought I'd hear that!
-I learned a lot from these girls.
-We had a great time.
And thanks for the help, guys.
-How ironic is that?
-You used a man to help you win.
-Vinny, are you OK?
-No, we didn't!
-I'm very happy they won.
I know these guys are going to hate me for that.
In fact, come on, did I help you out a little with the campaign?
-I think we were on our way. He just saved us time.
-They did something special.
I tell you what, I think they did something very special.
Creativity is an amazing thing,
and I think what they did was really terrific.
And I don't know if anybody helped them.
I think they had that concept from the beginning.
We knew what we wanted to do.
Mr Trump, I've enjoyed my run.
I collected some pretty good money for my charity.
But I just don't feel that this is a healthy environment for me,
and I'd like to resign from the show.
I fully understand that. I fully understand that.
It's been tough treatment, no question. I've seen you go at it.
I'm not going to have a heart attack over this guy. I think about,
I'm 61 years old. Do I want to see my children grow up?
I don't want to do this in front of the women. Get out of here.
-Congratulations. Great job.
-Thank you so much.
-Congratulations. Well done.
-Vinny...you don't have to quit.
-All right, Vinny, sit down.
Way to go.
Let's go watch with our champagne. And our tequila.
I'm so emotional for my brother's charity.
-It's such a new charity.
-Who wants some?
-Is this what winning is like?
-Ladies, it feels better to win.
-So much better winning.
-Here's to your brother's charity.
-Thank you very much.
-I love Ivanka. I love her.
-Shh, let's watch.
She's such a powerhouse.
So, Vinny, I'm only disappointed
that you want to resign or quit or whatever it is,
because I just don't think it's your personality.
I just don't like the environment any more in my life.
Because of Piers?
-But you like Lennox.
-No, it's not...
-You like the other guys?
I love Lennox. I love these guys.
And I don't have anything against him.
It's just that I don't need anybody to rile me up.
-I'm not the only person.
-But that's the part of the game.
OK, it's part of the game.
-It's a war.
-Do you wake up in the morning and fight with people?
-My whole life is a fight. My whole life is a fight.
It's no different than him, except I don't use my fists.
I sort of use this. My whole life is a big, fat fight.
And Vinny, you could have fought and you could have beaten Piers,
but you didn't fight for yourself to stay over him.
You resigned before having the opportunity to do that.
And, really, two of the three independent people in the room
said they would rather have you on the team with them.
Well, for the team, Piers is a better leader.
I mean, I have, uh...you know, certain qualifications.
I could never do what this guy does.
-So, why even go...
-But maybe you should never admit that, Vinny.
See, maybe like, I can't fight like Lennox Lewis fights,
but...I guess I could admit that. But I wouldn't admit it anyway!
I wouldn't admit it. I'm going to tell Lennox that I could kick his ass.
At least it makes me feel good. You understand that?
But it's also a matter of trust.
-What kind of friends am I working with?
-Let me ask you this.
-if I fired Piers, would you stay?
So you're only resigning because Piers is here?
-I'd love to work with these guys.
-Well then, why didn't you fight before you resigned?
Because there's no way your father's going to ask me to stay.
Why is that? Two of your team-mates, independents.
Lennox said he would rather have Piers, but Trace and Stephen said
they would rather you stay on there. That seems like a pretty big thing.
-You can't just go and say,
"I resign, I quit," and then take it back. You can't do that.
That's like saying I missed a shot in golf, but I'm going to do it again.
What do you want me to do?
Stephen, I'd like a little help. What would you do if you were me?
Mr Trump, I am not trying to kiss your ass,
but I believe that you are as successful as you are
as a result of your wisdom, knowledge,
integrity, strength, intelligence.
These are powerful words.
But integrity and character, I would rather have less success
and a better name than anything else.
-So, what would you do?
-Can I just pick you up on that one minute?
Let him just finish.
-This is very disingenuous.
-Wait, let him finish, Piers. Go ahead.
If I were you, I'd let Piers go. SHE LAUGHS
-He's sweating, Piers is sweating. Look at Piers' face.
He's sweating, oh, my gosh!
In your career, have you always, regardless,
done anything to win, even if it meant hurting someone?
I have no comment. I can't comment on that.
Could I just take Stephen up on his extremely pious position here,
which is that he wanted nothing to do with the sabotage?
Because there was a moment after he'd expressed his view
very clearly to the camera, he kept turning to the camera.
"I want nothing to do with this."
Later, he said to me, "Piers, the information from Vinny is there.
-"You should look at it."
-That's not true.
-This is a guy who is a rank hypocrite...
-That's not true, Mr Trump.
..exposed by the camera.
Secondly, the reason he wants me to leave is because if I'm gone,
he stands a much better chance of winning.
One of the things I'm concerned about is a winner fights to the end.
-Yeah, I... You know...
-You understand that.
I understand that, and I also understand that Piers
has more determination and more desire to be the Apprentice than me.
Lennox, how do you feel about quitting,
coming from the background you do?
I don't like people that quit.
It's go and go until the end, and...
This guy, I've seen him get the hell knocked out of him,
and they thought he was out. He comes back from death.
-He doesn't know about quitting.
-No, well, the thing is about this game, it's all mental.
If you're not mentally strong,
that's when you're going to quit or decide to leave.
Let me ask you something, Lennox.
Boxers, a lot of them have great physical ability.
I've seen guys fight you, they're stronger.
-And you beat them with this.
You can't beat some of these guys with your body.
But you beat them with the head.
-I totally agree with that.
-It's not just physical ability.
-It's also mental ability, even boxing.
I would like to say, I am not quitting. I am not walking away.
I am doing what I feel is best for me and for the team.
Let's go back to phase one. Let's just let me resign.
You know what, Vinny? You're a special guy, a special actor.
I accept your resignation. I'm not going to say you're fired, there's no reason.
-I accept your resignation. I think you are terrific.
-Thank you, Donald.
Get out of here, everyone. Go. Go.
Hey, Vinny. Vinny.
-Business, not personal.
That was unbelievable. Wow.
My ultimate downfall was trusting people.
In this crazy, back-stabbing, two-faced business world,
you don't trust anybody. It's dog eat dog.

In this double-length episode the teams have to come up with a campaign to recycle shoes for the needy. Team leader Piers Morgan tries something underhand, which causes major eruptions.
