You're fired. You're fired. You're fired. Go.

0:00:040:00:06

Rocksolid, are we ready?

0:00:060:00:08

Everyone is talking.

0:00:080:00:10

-Lying piece of

-BLEEP.

-He betrays me in the job.

0:00:100:00:13

I'm putting you in charge of this. Make the decision.

0:00:130:00:15

Now I know why Dennis Rodman started drinking.

0:00:150:00:18

The critics are raving.

0:00:180:00:19

Goodbye.

0:00:190:00:20

Ohh.

0:00:200:00:21

Let's do it.

0:00:210:00:23

Raising money for charity!

0:00:230:00:24

She said Carol first.

0:00:240:00:25

I don't know what to tell you to do, Bret,

0:00:250:00:27

because I'm not the Project Manager.

0:00:270:00:29

They can get their asses fired so fast,

0:00:290:00:31

your head will spin.

0:00:310:00:32

And we're just warming up.

0:00:320:00:34

Muggles and wizards, Muggles and wizards.

0:00:340:00:37

-Aaaah!

-Aaaah!

0:00:370:00:39

-Wing!

-SHE SNORTS

0:00:390:00:41

-BLEEP

-sake, Cyndi, shut up!

0:00:410:00:43

-Rosie O'Donnell.

-Ugh. She's disgusting.

0:00:430:00:46

Let's go!

0:00:460:00:46

My brain to my mouth sometimes is a disaster.

0:00:460:00:48

Dumb bitches.

0:00:480:00:50

As the celebrities fight to survive the pressure...

0:00:500:00:53

Her wordiness can be a little difficult.

0:00:530:00:55

-You're throwing me under the truck.

-No, no, no, I'm not.

0:00:550:00:57

..ass on the line, start throwing people under the bus.

0:00:570:00:59

Rod! Rod!

0:00:590:01:00

Don't tell me what to do.

0:01:000:01:02

Don't forget...

0:01:020:01:04

What I'm saying is

0:01:040:01:05

-you're getting me hyped up, so I

-BLEEP

-explode.

0:01:050:01:07

..everything is happening on the streets.

0:01:070:01:09

I think that we can win this.

0:01:090:01:10

No, no, no. Hi.

0:01:110:01:12

Every rug that we used, I carried one.

0:01:120:01:16

And anything can happen in the boardroom.

0:01:160:01:19

You all know an answer.

0:01:190:01:20

But somebody's got to be fired.

0:01:200:01:21

-I was sticking up for you.

-It's all bull

-BLEEP.

0:01:210:01:24

Just relax. Can I finish or not?

0:01:240:01:27

-I wish you people could answer the

-BLEEP

-damn

-BLEEP

-question.

0:01:270:01:32

Who knows what will happen next?

0:01:320:01:36

Smile!

0:01:360:01:38

-This is a reality check. Go

-BLEEP

-yourself.

0:01:420:01:46

Last week, the teams were given some surprising news.

0:01:460:01:50

Sharon's not here.

0:01:500:01:51

She's been sick as a dog.

0:01:510:01:52

We weren't going to have Sharon,

0:01:520:01:53

so I felt a little bit cheated as Project Manager.

0:01:530:01:57

Tasked with creating two commercials for Right Guard

0:01:570:01:59

starring NBA legends Clyde Drexler

0:01:590:02:01

and Scottie Pippin, Maria Kanellis questioned

0:02:010:02:04

if Selita Ebanks was pulling her weight.

0:02:040:02:07

Here I am carrying a sink and fridge,

0:02:070:02:09

but Selita disappeared on me.

0:02:090:02:12

That girl is strong.

0:02:120:02:13

On Rocksolid,

0:02:130:02:14

Bret Michaels received difficult news about his daughter.

0:02:140:02:17

My daughter... they're testing her for diabetes,

0:02:170:02:20

so I'm freaking out right now.

0:02:200:02:21

And family matters took Michael Johnson out of the competition.

0:02:210:02:25

Take care of your family. We love you, brother.

0:02:250:02:27

We're going to miss you.

0:02:270:02:29

In the boardroom,

0:02:290:02:30

Rocksolid's losing streak finally came to an end...

0:02:300:02:33

They loved the men's commercial.

0:02:330:02:35

Yes!

0:02:350:02:36

..leaving Tenacity to battle it out.

0:02:360:02:39

Can I say something?

0:02:390:02:41

Cyndi, you're not even coming back in.

0:02:410:02:42

-You should just be sitting back.

-OK.

0:02:420:02:44

Oh, thanks, Mom(!)

0:02:440:02:45

But it was Selita's silence

0:02:450:02:46

that singled her out.

0:02:460:02:48

I'm looking at Selita,

0:02:480:02:49

and I don't see the same fire in your belly.

0:02:490:02:53

Selita, you're fired. Go.

0:02:530:02:54

Listen, between my daughter and this,

0:03:030:03:05

I said, "If I lose tonight"... I was sitting in that chair.

0:03:050:03:07

I'm like, "If I lose, I may just walk

0:03:070:03:09

-"right to the

-BLEEP

-highest window and just..."

0:03:090:03:11

It's been way too long since we won,

0:03:110:03:13

and let me tell you something...

0:03:130:03:14

Tonight, with everything that's going on

0:03:140:03:16

in my personal life with my daughter,

0:03:160:03:18

I was willing it to win.

0:03:180:03:20

Yeah, but what about the test results? They come tomorrow?

0:03:200:03:22

They're supposed to come today, and we haven't gotten them yet.

0:03:220:03:25

Let's drink. Come on.

0:03:250:03:26

I'll find out about my daughter tomorrow,

0:03:260:03:28

and this is the beginning of a positive great karma right here.

0:03:280:03:33

She is not going to be diabetic.

0:03:330:03:34

It's going to be negative, and we're going to rock.

0:03:340:03:36

It's going to be great.

0:03:360:03:37

It was a really tough thing to direct.

0:03:370:03:39

Honey, it was a very tough thing.

0:03:390:03:41

She was... She was acting it, and she was directing it.

0:03:410:03:43

But that's the problem.

0:03:430:03:44

I mean, it was all about Holly, not for nothing,

0:03:440:03:48

and then she turns around to me and tells me what to do.

0:03:480:03:51

I don't need a mother.

0:03:510:03:53

The younguns...they don't listen.

0:03:530:03:55

They turn their backs and ignore what I'm saying,

0:03:550:03:57

and I feel like, "Big mistake."

0:03:570:04:00

Uh-oh. Here we go.

0:04:020:04:04

Hey, guys.

0:04:050:04:07

-Aww.

-Hi.

0:04:070:04:09

-Selita!

-Hi.

0:04:090:04:12

Why Selita?

0:04:120:04:13

I don't know.

0:04:130:04:15

Are you OK?

0:04:150:04:17

I'm good. I'm good, yeah.

0:04:170:04:19

'I was very disappointed in the boardroom.

0:04:190:04:21

'We were at a disadvantage.'

0:04:210:04:22

We got one person who's sick, Sharon Osbourne,

0:04:220:04:25

and then we had Cyndi Lauper.

0:04:250:04:26

Somehow she had all this observation

0:04:260:04:30

of a task that she wasn't even really present for.

0:04:300:04:32

So now you're mad at me?

0:04:320:04:34

I just felt like you were safe and exempt,

0:04:340:04:36

-and at that point...

-I didn't want them to fire Selita!

0:04:360:04:39

I didn't want them to do it,

0:04:390:04:40

but you weren't... you were defending...

0:04:400:04:41

You can do whatever you want to do, Cyndi...

0:04:410:04:43

whatever you want to do.

0:04:430:04:44

The Kumbaya moment is over.

0:04:440:04:46

I didn't want Selita to go, either.

0:04:460:04:48

-I didn't want Maria to go.

-All right, zip it. Zip.

0:04:480:04:51

RIP Kumbaya, because now it's game on.

0:04:510:04:55

# Money, money, money, money

0:05:000:05:04

# Money!

0:05:040:05:07

# Money, money, money, money

0:05:070:05:10

# Money! #

0:05:100:05:11

So, Clyde, when I'm...

0:05:190:05:20

when I'm not getting roasted by Mr Trump in the boardroom,

0:05:200:05:24

this is my reality, mate...the kitchen.

0:05:240:05:27

So, I'm here at the New York City Rescue Mission,

0:05:270:05:28

which is one of the agencies that Feeding America supports.

0:05:280:05:31

Feeding America's my charity, because food's my world,

0:05:310:05:34

and I want to make it happen for people that don't have enough to eat.

0:05:340:05:36

So, do you cook, Clyde?

0:05:360:05:37

-Not at all.

-No? Never?

0:05:370:05:39

Never.

0:05:390:05:40

Today I've got a special guest in the kitchen.

0:05:400:05:42

It's not every day that I can say I've got Clyde Drexler

0:05:420:05:44

standing next to me as my sous chef.

0:05:440:05:46

-Hey, guys.

-How are you?

0:05:460:05:47

Phil, this is Clyde.

0:05:470:05:48

-Hey, Clyde. Nice to see you.

-Good to see you, as well.

0:05:480:05:50

-Hey, Curtis. Nice to see you.

-Great to see you.

0:05:500:05:51

I wasn't expecting company today.

0:05:510:05:54

So, we've got a bit of a surprise for you, mate.

0:05:540:05:56

-I love it.

-Have a look at what's for lunch.

0:05:560:05:58

All right.

0:05:580:06:00

Chicken and leek pie.

0:06:000:06:02

And...

0:06:020:06:04

20,000! Holy cow!

0:06:040:06:07

-That's awesome!

-How cool is that?

0:06:070:06:10

I have a surprise for you both.

0:06:100:06:12

From Right Guard Total Defence 5,

0:06:120:06:14

we have a matching donation of 20,000.

0:06:140:06:17

No way!

0:06:170:06:18

Wow! Fantastic!

0:06:180:06:20

'I work for an organisation, Feeding America,'

0:06:200:06:22

that can take a dollar donation and make that seven meals.

0:06:220:06:25

So, a 40,000 donation is 280,000 meals.

0:06:250:06:30

To go back to Feeding America with that type of a donation

0:06:300:06:34

is just amazing.

0:06:340:06:35

I can't thank those guys enough.

0:06:350:06:36

It's time to get cooking, Curtis. 280,000 meals.

0:06:360:06:38

You got a lot of work to do - a lot of work to do.

0:06:380:06:41

'Things have been pretty crazy on Celebrity Apprentice.

0:06:410:06:43

'You know, it's been long hours and tough work,'

0:06:430:06:45

but right now, there's 49 million Americans

0:06:450:06:48

that are still affected by hunger.

0:06:480:06:49

What can I get you, sir? A bit of everything.

0:06:490:06:52

To come down here, that reminds me why I'm doing it.

0:06:520:06:54

Feeding America's so important to me,

0:06:540:06:55

and I'm so determined to win this.

0:06:550:06:57

-There you go, my friend.

-Thanks, man.

-You're welcome.

0:06:570:07:00

Come on, fellas.

0:07:160:07:18

I was a bit surprised to see Trace Adkins walk in.

0:07:320:07:35

He's a big guy.

0:07:350:07:36

So, once I saw him, I knew it was about music.

0:07:360:07:38

Sharon's still not here.

0:07:380:07:40

She's very, very sick.

0:07:400:07:42

It's up to you whether or not you decide to utilise her.

0:07:420:07:46

I don't know what's happening with Sharon,

0:07:460:07:47

but pretty soon we're going to have to make a decision.

0:07:470:07:50

I have to say I think there's a little bit

0:07:500:07:52

of preferential treatment going on with Sharon,

0:07:520:07:54

and I really, really like her a lot,

0:07:540:07:56

but she got to play by the rules like everybody else.

0:07:560:07:59

We're standing in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame annexe -

0:07:590:08:02

an amazing place.

0:08:020:08:04

In fact, I expect to see Cyndi and Bret here someday.

0:08:040:08:08

You'll get in. After The Apprentice, You're going to get in. You watch.

0:08:080:08:11

You're going to be doing something that, to me,

0:08:110:08:15

is very interesting,

0:08:150:08:16

and I think I sort of did it a couple of years ago,

0:08:160:08:19

and that had to do with Trace.

0:08:190:08:21

He did really well on Celebrity Apprentice,

0:08:210:08:25

and today he's the biggest country star there is.

0:08:250:08:28

So, you're going to be taking two young country stars.

0:08:280:08:32

Trace, explain.

0:08:320:08:34

You're going to make over two young country artists,

0:08:340:08:37

and you're going to prepare them for an interview

0:08:370:08:40

with People Country magazine and to do a live performance.

0:08:400:08:44

At that performance will be the journalists from People,

0:08:440:08:47

a well-known country-music disc jockey,

0:08:470:08:49

and Pete Fisher, general manager of the Grand Ole Opry,

0:08:490:08:51

judging you on this task.

0:08:510:08:53

You're going to be judged on the overall makeover,

0:08:530:08:56

the press kit that you'll be creating to promote them,

0:08:560:08:58

and whatever value you can add

0:08:580:09:00

to the artist's potential breakout.

0:09:000:09:02

Pick your Project Manager, please.

0:09:020:09:05

Cyndi.

0:09:050:09:06

I think I could do this.

0:09:060:09:07

Going to be Cyndi?

0:09:070:09:08

-No huddle needed.

-Yeah.

0:09:080:09:10

I would think, right? Cyndi.

0:09:100:09:12

Well, I love working with other artists.

0:09:120:09:14

It's what I do. I reinvent myself all the time.

0:09:140:09:18

I think Bill has got a shot.

0:09:180:09:20

He's got to go, man. He's got to go.

0:09:200:09:22

I mean, I would love to do it, but it's your time to shine, man.

0:09:220:09:24

OK, men?

0:09:240:09:26

Goldberg?

0:09:260:09:28

Bret, why wouldn't it be you?

0:09:280:09:29

It's... It's his turn, and I'll back him. I'm his right hand.

0:09:290:09:32

But don't you think you have an expertise

0:09:320:09:33

that Goldberg wouldn't have?

0:09:330:09:35

We work as a team, Rocksolid.

0:09:350:09:37

-You don't think it matters?

-No.

0:09:370:09:39

If you hadn't been a Project Manager,

0:09:390:09:41

then you kind of should step up.

0:09:410:09:43

The last thing I'm going to do is put my tail between my legs

0:09:430:09:46

and back up a little bit and let Bret jump in.

0:09:460:09:49

The winning Project Manager

0:09:490:09:50

gets 20,000 for his or her charity.

0:09:500:09:54

The loser, you know what happens.

0:09:540:09:56

Good luck.

0:09:560:09:58

I believe that if a person is comfortable

0:10:030:10:05

in the clothes that they wear,

0:10:050:10:07

you go from there and you make it bigger.

0:10:070:10:10

This week's task is transforming a country artist

0:10:100:10:14

from unknown to well-known.

0:10:140:10:17

I am an aspiring singer myself,

0:10:170:10:19

and I'll be able to watch Cyndi Lauper,

0:10:190:10:22

one of my idols, work on this person.

0:10:220:10:24

You're the perfect Project Manager for this,

0:10:240:10:27

but just be aware that both of...

0:10:270:10:28

No. Both of you are singers. Absolutely.

0:10:280:10:31

You think I don't know that?

0:10:310:10:32

-Wait, wait, wait. Let her finish her thought.

-All right.

0:10:320:10:34

I'm just saying to think outside the box

0:10:340:10:37

and use us in ways that you may not necessarily...

0:10:370:10:40

I know we haven't known each other very long.

0:10:400:10:41

Do you think that I stepped on you when I was...

0:10:410:10:43

when I was the manager?

0:10:430:10:45

I let everybody do what they wanted.

0:10:450:10:46

Cyndi, I'm just... You're not even letting me finish my thought.

0:10:460:10:49

-All right. Go ahead.

-But it's OK.

0:10:490:10:51

I like Holly.

0:10:510:10:53

She gets...you know, like this.

0:10:530:10:56

And I think when you have long, long hours,

0:10:560:10:58

you start to edge up on each other.

0:10:580:11:00

I want to do the best job for you,

0:11:000:11:02

and all I'm doing is expressing to you

0:11:020:11:04

how you might be able to get better...

0:11:040:11:05

-OK.

-..performance out of us,

0:11:050:11:07

and you're just, like, blocking me.

0:11:070:11:08

I'm not understanding where that's coming from.

0:11:080:11:10

All right. I'm not blocking you.

0:11:100:11:11

'After what happened last boardroom,'

0:11:110:11:13

this task was starting with a not-so-cohesive group.

0:11:130:11:17

Let's put it that way.

0:11:170:11:18

Cyndi's bedside manner needs help.

0:11:300:11:32

She just blew off anything we had to say,

0:11:320:11:34

and I mean anything.

0:11:340:11:35

Namely, sweetheart, you want a beauty shot if it's a she.

0:11:350:11:39

If it's a he, he should look sexy and cute.

0:11:390:11:42

Lady Gaga... I don't think she's concerned about looking beautiful.

0:11:420:11:45

Actually, Lady Gaga is very concerned about looking beautiful.

0:11:450:11:48

I've worked with her.

0:11:480:11:50

-So there.

-No, but I have.

0:11:500:11:52

It's all "So there" This morning. So, fine. Whatever. I know nothing.

0:11:520:11:55

That's not right, sweetie,

0:11:550:11:57

but sometimes you think you know something.

0:11:570:11:59

The reaction that I got when I tried to say anything

0:11:590:12:02

was, like, this... "Zip it."

0:12:020:12:04

And for one of my childhood idols to be coming at me that way

0:12:040:12:08

just totally changes my opinion about her.

0:12:080:12:11

How you doing?

0:12:120:12:13

-Hi, guys. Mike Dungan.

-Curtis Stone.

0:12:130:12:15

-Pleasure to meet you, man.

-Mike, how are you doing, man? Bret.

0:12:150:12:17

-Nice to see you.

-How you doing, sir? Bill Goldberg.

0:12:170:12:19

What are you looking for in their press Kit?

0:12:190:12:22

I'm always looking for some point of differentiation.

0:12:220:12:24

-OK.

-Unless you can differentiate yourself at key points,

0:12:240:12:28

then there's really no point.

0:12:280:12:30

Absolutely, and that was the first thing I said to these guys.

0:12:300:12:32

Don't start thinking of tractors and hay bales,

0:12:320:12:34

because country is such a massive demographic,

0:12:340:12:37

and for a band like Poison, we've...

0:12:370:12:39

Every Rose crossed over to...

0:12:390:12:41

I mean, it was one of our hits, both rock and country.

0:12:410:12:43

Right.

0:12:430:12:44

In the real world, on this task,

0:12:440:12:46

I probably would have been Project Manager,

0:12:460:12:47

but, honestly, we decided that

0:12:470:12:49

Bill needs to have his chance to win for his charity,

0:12:490:12:51

and we're going to fight to the end.

0:12:510:12:52

Would you guys like to meet the artist?

0:12:520:12:53

-Absolutely.

-I'll be right back.

0:12:530:12:55

It's cool to watch Bret do his thing.

0:12:550:12:57

It makes me feel a little useless sometimes,

0:12:570:12:59

because you have to defer to the experts.

0:12:590:13:03

-What's up?

-This is Luke Bryan.

0:13:030:13:04

Of course. How you doing, Bret? Good to see you, man.

0:13:040:13:06

Good to see you.

0:13:060:13:07

How are you? It's very nice to meet you.

0:13:070:13:10

Nice to meet you. Yeah, yeah.

0:13:100:13:11

'It was my image that we would sit down with two really young kids'

0:13:110:13:15

that were just trying to get into the music industry...

0:13:150:13:17

-Let's get you some chairs.

-'But that wasn't the case.

0:13:170:13:18

'These guys have already dealt with a certain level of fame.'

0:13:180:13:22

So, that's always going to be tough,

0:13:220:13:24

because you're not dealing with an 18-year-old kid

0:13:240:13:26

who's like, "Give me an image. I'm up for it."

0:13:260:13:29

So, what's your long-term goals, then, mate?

0:13:290:13:31

"Mate." Does that mean a woman?

0:13:310:13:34

Oh, you know, my long-term is to be able

0:13:340:13:37

to do this a long time

0:13:370:13:39

and then preserve the enjoyment of performing.

0:13:390:13:41

They were real intense, real businesslike.

0:13:410:13:45

They had a lot of questions that were great.

0:13:450:13:46

What's your biggest strength, then, Emily?

0:13:460:13:48

-My live shows.

-Mm-hmm.

0:13:480:13:50

Making the record and then doing a live show is so different.

0:13:500:13:52

I would be fine working with the men.

0:13:520:13:55

I think that it would be kind of funny going shopping with them

0:13:550:13:58

or whatever they're planning on doing with my look and my hair,

0:13:580:14:01

'but I'm going to really kind of shoot and pray'

0:14:010:14:03

that I get on the girls' team.

0:14:030:14:05

Five minutes until our person's available.

0:14:050:14:08

It's OK for us to ask them questions, right, Cyndi?

0:14:080:14:11

Yeah, just don't step over me.

0:14:110:14:13

-Let me introduce myself and introduce you.

-No.

0:14:130:14:16

Just allow us to ask the questions we want to ask.

0:14:160:14:18

You don't step on us, either, cos you can do that, too.

0:14:180:14:22

Right. I'm not stepping on you, Holly.

0:14:220:14:24

-I'm just saying...

-You said don't step on us.

0:14:240:14:26

-OK, OK, OK, OK, OK. No, no, no, no.

-I'm just saying.

0:14:260:14:28

Let me just talk to the guy, though.

0:14:280:14:30

We all looked at each other like,

0:14:300:14:31

-"Oh,

-BLEEP

-she is really trying to tell us

0:14:310:14:34

"we're not allowed to ask any questions in this task."

0:14:340:14:36

Hi!

0:14:380:14:39

-Hello, ladies.

-Have a seat here.

0:14:390:14:41

Yeah, let me clear up some stuff, cos I really want to...

0:14:410:14:44

I have some questions for you about these kids.

0:14:440:14:48

I have music.

0:14:480:14:50

That's wonderful. Can I... Let me listen.

0:14:500:14:53

Did Emily West write these songs, or is this...

0:14:530:14:56

Emily West wrote two of the three of them.

0:14:560:15:00

# So your conscience finally hit you

0:15:000:15:04

# And you're feeling guilty

0:15:040:15:10

# And you're wishing I was there... #

0:15:100:15:13

Emily has a very big personality,

0:15:130:15:16

and she's very funny, very creative,

0:15:160:15:18

very bright, and hard to put into a box.

0:15:180:15:22

Well, I don't think you should change people.

0:15:220:15:24

I think that's what's wrong with music today.

0:15:240:15:26

Well, I have no intention of changing her.

0:15:260:15:28

I just don't know if I should focus on that.

0:15:280:15:30

# Rain makes corn

0:15:300:15:32

# Corn makes whisky

0:15:320:15:35

# Whisky makes my baby

0:15:350:15:37

# Feel a little frisky... #

0:15:370:15:40

I signed Luke Bryan after seeing him live on stage.

0:15:400:15:44

It was just the kind of personality where,

0:15:440:15:46

the minute you see the guy walk in the room,

0:15:460:15:47

you want to know who he is and what he does.

0:15:470:15:49

That was clever, you know, about the rain.

0:15:490:15:52

He's a Southern, rural guy.

0:15:520:15:53

-Yeah, rural.

-Mm-hmm.

0:15:530:15:54

Well, would you guys... would you guys like to meet the artists?

0:15:540:15:56

-Please.

-Let me get them, OK?

0:15:560:15:57

I'll be right back.

0:15:570:15:59

Hello, there! How are you?

0:15:590:16:01

Emily walked straight through that door, and...

0:16:010:16:04

She was so excited to meet Cyndi Lauper.

0:16:040:16:05

It was really, really cute...

0:16:050:16:07

It's so nice to meet you.

0:16:070:16:09

I've been listening to you all morning.

0:16:090:16:11

Hey, I'm Luke.

0:16:120:16:13

..which I think touched Cyndi,

0:16:130:16:15

and they were both super personable

0:16:150:16:18

and passionate about their craft.

0:16:180:16:21

Who's your favourite country artist?

0:16:210:16:22

I grew up just a huge Alan Jackson and George Strait...

0:16:220:16:26

and I also liked Alabama.

0:16:260:16:28

I heard Patsy Cline, and I grew up listening to Loretta Lynn

0:16:280:16:31

and, you know, all kinds of music,

0:16:310:16:32

but lyrics and real-life stories is what I write from.

0:16:320:16:36

I think both of you are great.

0:16:360:16:38

Um, I'd just like to have a little time with them now

0:16:380:16:41

and just discuss who we think we can help the most.

0:16:410:16:46

After we met with our two artists,

0:16:460:16:48

we were going to decide which one we wanted

0:16:480:16:50

and then negotiate with the guys

0:16:500:16:51

to get the artist that we preferred.

0:16:510:16:53

OK. I like them both.

0:16:530:16:56

I think I can help the girl more than the guy.

0:16:560:17:00

-Yeah.

-My vision for him is hard because of his look.

0:17:000:17:04

Well, he's kind of a clean slate. I mean, you can dress him up.

0:17:040:17:07

You can't change the length of his hair.

0:17:070:17:09

You can't change the shape of his head.

0:17:090:17:12

I think they're both tremendous artists.

0:17:120:17:14

They're great artists. I'm not talking about that.

0:17:140:17:16

I'm talking about the visual.

0:17:160:17:18

'He was a shape I didn't know if I could wrangle.'

0:17:180:17:21

His haircut was very square-shaped and very short,

0:17:210:17:25

so I didn't know what the heck you could do.

0:17:250:17:28

'So, I thought, "Let the guys deal with him."'

0:17:280:17:31

I like the girl because I was looking at her face,

0:17:310:17:35

I was looking how she could be photographed,

0:17:350:17:37

her songs are awesome, and I think I can help her.

0:17:370:17:41

I don't know if you guys feel that way,

0:17:410:17:43

but I feel very strongly I'd like to help her.

0:17:430:17:46

Emily and Luke are tremendous people,

0:17:460:17:48

but we knew, I think, from the moment

0:17:480:17:50

that we were able to listen to Emily's voice and her music

0:17:500:17:55

that she was probably the artist for us.

0:17:550:17:58

I'm sorry. She was probably the artist for Cyndi.

0:17:580:18:00

'We didn't really have a say.'

0:18:000:18:02

You know what our next step is? It doesn't matter who we want.

0:18:020:18:05

We got to negotiate it with the guys.

0:18:050:18:07

We don't have her yet.

0:18:070:18:08

Yeah.

0:18:080:18:09

OK. So, here's the deal.

0:18:130:18:15

In 10 minutes, the guys are going to come in.

0:18:150:18:16

Yeah.

0:18:160:18:17

We're all clear that we like...

0:18:170:18:20

I like her. I think she's great.

0:18:200:18:22

This is the way the guys might be approaching this.

0:18:220:18:24

Bret might be going, "I can help both of them.

0:18:240:18:26

"Who can Cyndi help the least?"

0:18:260:18:28

Mm-hmm. Do you see what we're saying?

0:18:280:18:30

So you need to be smart when you're negotiating.

0:18:300:18:32

We got to negotiate like lawyers?

0:18:320:18:34

-Mm-hmm.

-BLEEP.

0:18:340:18:36

Voice quality is just, mm!

0:18:360:18:39

It's what she wrote about, too, that's awesome.

0:18:390:18:41

Right. We didn't really get a chance to hear what he wrote.

0:18:410:18:44

-No, I listened.

-Well, we didn't, so...

-OK.

0:18:440:18:46

My point is, is that... Since we have 10 minutes,

0:18:460:18:49

it would be good just to listen to the music.

0:18:490:18:52

But wait, Cyn. So, when the guys come in...

0:18:520:18:54

We'll listen to the music, and then when the guys come in, we...

0:18:540:18:57

All right.

0:18:570:18:58

You know, you do this, cos I'm just trying to help.

0:18:580:19:01

You want to listen to the song, we should listen to the music.

0:19:010:19:02

Cyndi, I was just getting a game plan.

0:19:020:19:04

We're trying to get procedural stuff in this, OK?

0:19:040:19:07

Well, don't you... OK.

0:19:070:19:09

If they want the girl, too,

0:19:090:19:10

we just have to start thinking about how we want to strategise.

0:19:100:19:12

Well, I'm going to tell them, if you don't mind,

0:19:120:19:15

that I think that Bret could help the guy much more.

0:19:150:19:18

Do you want us to sit back and let you do it?

0:19:180:19:21

We're not... I don't think we should say...

0:19:210:19:23

I think we should let Cyndi do all the talking.

0:19:230:19:24

When I just tried to do some procedural things, you were like...

0:19:240:19:27

Can we... Wait. Come back.

0:19:270:19:29

Can we end this now so we can move on?

0:19:290:19:32

Cyndi, in the middle of someone giving an opinion,

0:19:320:19:34

you react, like, before we have a chance to say anything.

0:19:340:19:37

OK. And that was rude of me, and I'm sorry.

0:19:370:19:41

-It's not so much rude...

-Do you accept that?

0:19:410:19:43

I don't want an apology.

0:19:430:19:44

I want to change the way we're doing it.

0:19:440:19:45

Well, that's what I'm trying to do.

0:19:450:19:48

OK, guys, we got 20 minutes to make a decision

0:19:490:19:51

on which artist we want.

0:19:510:19:53

You should listen to this with me, Bill.

0:19:530:19:54

This is what you want answered.

0:19:540:19:56

-Anastasia.

-'Yes?'

0:19:560:19:57

I'm coming in as a manager.

0:19:570:19:59

I've got Emily West and Luke Bryan are my two choices.

0:19:590:20:02

OK. So, here I go.

0:20:050:20:06

Which way would you lean for me to work with somebody?

0:20:060:20:09

In typical Bret style, he ended up speaking to, you know,

0:20:090:20:12

some really big people in the music business,

0:20:120:20:15

cos, of course, Bret knows them all.

0:20:150:20:17

Steve, a couple questions about your artists.

0:20:170:20:18

We have Luke today, and we have Emily.

0:20:180:20:21

Got it. Emily...give me a little background on her.

0:20:280:20:30

This is the CEO Of such and such,

0:20:300:20:32

and this is the boss of blah, blah, blah.

0:20:320:20:34

And, you know, he was getting great advice,

0:20:340:20:36

but we ran out of time.

0:20:360:20:37

Come on, Bret. We got to cut him off, man. I'm sorry.

0:20:370:20:40

Walk.

0:20:400:20:41

No, we've got to make a decision, Bret.

0:20:410:20:43

'He's a good guy, I can tell you.'

0:20:430:20:46

Thanks again, Steven. I'll call you a little bit later.

0:20:460:20:49

-Have a safe flight.

-'Take care, guys.'

0:20:490:20:50

OK. What did you get from that,

0:20:500:20:53

in a one-sentence deal?

0:20:530:20:54

I don't have one sentence. Here's my question.

0:20:540:20:57

Luke or Emily?

0:20:570:20:58

-What's that?

-Luke or Emily?

0:20:580:21:00

Don't know.

0:21:000:21:01

You got to make a decision. Just give us an answer.

0:21:010:21:03

I don't have a preference.

0:21:030:21:04

Then, in the end, he was like, "Doesn't matter which one."

0:21:040:21:07

Luke or Emily? I'm like, "I know it's Luke or Emily.

0:21:070:21:09

"Which one?!"

0:21:090:21:11

Knock, knock.

0:21:130:21:14

So, who do you want?

0:21:150:21:18

Would you guys like something to drink?

0:21:180:21:19

-Nope.

-No.

0:21:190:21:20

Who do you want, ladies?

0:21:200:21:23

You know, I don't like

0:21:230:21:24

negotiating with people that I can't beat up.

0:21:240:21:26

-You guys go first.

-No, you go first.

0:21:260:21:28

-Ladies first.

-No, no. Let's hear what you have to say.

0:21:280:21:32

Our goal within the negotiations is to let the boys talk first.

0:21:350:21:39

Did that work? No.

0:21:390:21:41

They're all staring at us like this.

0:21:410:21:43

What did you guys think of the music?

0:21:430:21:45

-We're not here to make friends.

-Yeah. I mean, honestly, guys,

0:21:450:21:47

we're not here to give you opinions.

0:21:470:21:48

We're not going to give you any answers. You're the enemy.

0:21:480:21:50

OK. I like the girl.

0:21:500:21:52

-You want to take the girl?

-He's more of a clean slate.

0:21:520:21:55

Here's the thing. Both are super talented.

0:21:550:21:57

Whether you took the guy or the girl,

0:21:570:21:59

whatever we got, we're going to win with.

0:21:590:22:02

They're women, for God's sakes. Let them have what they want.

0:22:020:22:05

-We'll take the guy.

-Don't put any guyliner on him, Bret.

0:22:050:22:08

Don't worry.

0:22:080:22:09

Hey, that guyliner will bring him superpowers beyond belief.

0:22:090:22:13

-Just know that.

-I haven't seen any yet.

0:22:130:22:15

Oh! Maria!

0:22:150:22:17

Maria, the best interviews are when you direct the interview.

0:22:200:22:23

Do bullet points... Yeah, me too.

0:22:230:22:25

That's how I became famous.

0:22:250:22:27

It's interesting answers, quick, funny answers,

0:22:270:22:32

like if they say, "What's your favourite colour?"

0:22:320:22:33

When I did Playboy, you know what they used to ask me?

0:22:330:22:36

That's a different kind of... Yeah, but go ahead.

0:22:360:22:37

I used to get asked, "Are you shaved, or are you hairy?"

0:22:370:22:41

I mean, it's just, I've done so many interviews.

0:22:420:22:46

Like, I don't like to be told,

0:22:460:22:48

"You think you know blah, blah, blah."

0:22:480:22:50

It makes me... It hurts my feelings.

0:22:500:22:52

-It really hurts.

-Oh, you're talking about something else.

0:22:520:22:55

You hurt my feelings so much in the car,

0:22:550:22:56

because you're like, "You think you know."

0:22:560:22:58

Do you have any idea what I've been through?

0:22:580:23:01

-OK, honey.

-You act like I know nothing.

0:23:010:23:02

-No. You do know a lot.

-And I hate that. I hate that.

0:23:020:23:05

-But you walk around like you know everything.

-No, I don't.

0:23:050:23:08

I watched you,

0:23:080:23:09

and I listened to you when I was growing up,

0:23:090:23:12

and you hurt my feelings in the car.

0:23:120:23:14

"You think you know."

0:23:140:23:15

Cyndi just has no clue whatsoever what anybody's done,

0:23:150:23:20

'and, finally, at a certain point, I decided enough was enough.'

0:23:200:23:23

You're right, and I'm sorry. Will you accept that?

0:23:230:23:27

-Of course I will.

-Really?

0:23:270:23:28

Look at me. You, me. Will you?

0:23:280:23:30

Of course I will.

0:23:300:23:31

I'm taking it in, and I'm sorry, OK?

0:23:310:23:35

-Mm-hmm.

-OK.

0:23:350:23:38

She needs that validation

0:23:380:23:39

all the time, because she's just a kid.

0:23:390:23:42

Like, were you there in the room

0:23:420:23:44

when she talked about media training

0:23:440:23:47

and she said, "Are you shaved or not?"

0:23:470:23:51

And I was thinking to myself,

0:23:510:23:53

"That's what we're going to tell Emily West?"

0:23:530:23:57

-I'm so happy!

-Come on over.

0:23:590:24:02

What I wanted to do was something that had yin-yang.

0:24:020:24:05

Like, you know how lace and leather looks,

0:24:050:24:07

where it could be glamorous and a little roughneck

0:24:070:24:11

-but just enough?

-Totally.

0:24:110:24:14

She and... Both of them took... We all took media training.

0:24:140:24:16

Obviously, I failed, but she's really good.

0:24:160:24:20

Yeah, you and me. I know.

0:24:200:24:21

And they're really good at it.

0:24:210:24:23

I told Holly to write up your bio, so you need to tell us stuff.

0:24:230:24:27

Cyndi's creative juices were flowing,

0:24:270:24:29

but her creative juices were just splattered all over the place.

0:24:290:24:32

But you haven't done that yet, have you?

0:24:320:24:34

-Done what?

-Leather and lace.

0:24:340:24:36

I've... No, I have not.

0:24:360:24:38

I knew if Cyndi didn't let go of this controlling attitude,

0:24:380:24:40

there was going to be a disaster at the end of the day.

0:24:400:24:43

But I think if we're going to do that hairstyle,

0:24:430:24:44

we should do really dark eyes like that

0:24:440:24:46

but just kind of shade it out a little bit.

0:24:460:24:47

Yeah, softer. Not so hard.

0:24:470:24:50

Yeah. I love you.

0:24:500:24:52

(AS CYNDI) "Yeah, softer. Not so hard."

0:24:520:24:55

All right, all right. So...

0:24:550:24:57

Listen, what we don't want to fix

0:25:030:25:05

is what we love about you, which is the music's great

0:25:050:25:08

and you're a humble, likable guy.

0:25:080:25:09

Thanks. Thank you.

0:25:090:25:10

So, we're being judged on three things.

0:25:100:25:11

The first one is the promotional materials

0:25:110:25:13

that we get together to represent our artist,

0:25:130:25:16

the makeover, and, also, the overall possibility

0:25:160:25:19

of breakout, you know, success of this artist.

0:25:190:25:22

You're a good-looking guy, you're a humble guy,

0:25:220:25:24

you're a confident guy, but what we want to do is -

0:25:240:25:26

go with me on this - I want to bring out the rock star in you -

0:25:260:25:30

go with me - but keep the humble,

0:25:300:25:32

down-home country, married... I'm a father, too.

0:25:320:25:35

But it's also not great for me to go down a path

0:25:350:25:38

where I'm like... that I'm wigging out.

0:25:380:25:41

I was in full-blown "Let's get it done" mode.

0:25:410:25:44

So, we're going to do four different looks with you.

0:25:440:25:46

'I want to elevate his presence a little bit,

0:25:460:25:48

'and, definitely, we had to get him some new clothes to do that.'

0:25:480:25:52

You know, with boots on, 6'3".

0:25:530:25:57

We're a pretty similar size, right?

0:25:570:25:58

Yeah.

0:25:580:26:00

Step up for me.

0:26:000:26:02

See, I'm a little... If you throw my boots on...

0:26:020:26:03

-Same shoulders and stuff?

-Absolutely.

0:26:030:26:06

-So, I'll be able to try on clothes for you.

-Yeah.

0:26:060:26:09

Perfect thing about this whole challenge

0:26:090:26:10

was Luke is nearly an identical size to me.

0:26:100:26:14

This is nice.

0:26:160:26:17

That's right. You know?

0:26:230:26:25

Try this shirt on real quick. It's mine.

0:26:250:26:28

Looks good, man.

0:26:280:26:30

And the colour works on you. Am I wrong, guys?

0:26:300:26:32

What colour are your eyes?

0:26:320:26:34

Yes, America, I just asked that.

0:26:340:26:37

I'm just putting this on. It's a simple chain.

0:26:380:26:41

-What are you thinking?

-You feel comfortable wearing a wife-beater

0:26:440:26:47

and something like that and a nice watch,

0:26:470:26:49

as opposed to, you know,

0:26:490:26:50

sitting there with that shirt unbuttoned?

0:26:500:26:53

I can't believe I'm asking another guy this.

0:26:530:26:55

No. This is part of creating the image, man.

0:26:550:26:57

Goldberg... He is, like, the man's man's macho man.

0:26:570:27:00

It was a very different side of Goldberg, but I enjoyed it.

0:27:000:27:03

It was very humorous.

0:27:030:27:04

We've got two hours to be back here with all wardrobe.

0:27:040:27:07

Let's go.

0:27:070:27:08

Good luck out there, boys.

0:27:080:27:09

It's my job to keep us all on time.

0:27:090:27:11

So, Goldberg and I went shopping.

0:27:110:27:13

We took our shopping consultant,

0:27:130:27:15

and it was pretty funny for me, to be perfectly honest.

0:27:150:27:17

I've got one of the toughest guys

0:27:170:27:19

in the world sitting on my right.

0:27:190:27:20

I've got one of the gayest guys in the world sitting behind me.

0:27:200:27:23

For him, I would stay with, like, earth tones.

0:27:230:27:26

It was just this strange dynamic.

0:27:260:27:29

This could be an option.

0:27:300:27:32

You know what I mean?

0:27:320:27:33

-She hasn't been seen like that.

-Yeah.

0:27:330:27:36

Our wardrobe stylist came in, and then Cyndi went on the internet

0:27:360:27:38

and sort of found this image of leather and lace,

0:27:380:27:41

a sort of soft and hard look for her.

0:27:410:27:43

I really think...

0:27:520:27:54

With the make-up, I want to talk to the make-up artist.

0:27:540:27:56

But you could put it... You've talked so...

0:27:560:27:57

-Well, do we want to wait for the make-up artist to come?

-No!

0:27:570:27:59

Cyndi wanted to do the hair, make-up.

0:27:590:28:01

Cyndi wanted to be with the clothes.

0:28:010:28:03

Cyndi did not want to task out anything.

0:28:030:28:06

To tangibly see the clothes,

0:28:060:28:08

I just think, Cyn, you just need to...

0:28:080:28:09

-That's up to you, though.

-Do me a favour, though.

0:28:090:28:11

Look up the '60s, like, movie stars with the darker eyes,

0:28:110:28:16

but she can't have it, like... Listen.

0:28:160:28:17

But that's softer.

0:28:170:28:19

-Mm-hmm.

-That's a look she's done.

0:28:190:28:22

But, Boo, come here. She's done that look.

0:28:220:28:24

What about Brigitte Bardot?

0:28:240:28:25

She's never done Brigitte Bardot.

0:28:250:28:28

OK.

0:28:280:28:29

We'll do whatever you want. You're the Project Manager.

0:28:320:28:34

When you do the curly look,

0:28:340:28:36

you should do the Grace Kelly look.

0:28:360:28:38

I'm not saying do Grace Kelly. I was just trying to get...

0:28:380:28:41

-No, no, but that would match.

-All right.

0:28:410:28:42

I did cut you off. Go ahead.

0:28:420:28:43

No, that's OK. I'm good.

0:28:430:28:45

I think we need clothes.

0:28:450:28:46

Would you do me a favour, though?

0:28:460:28:47

-Would you look up Brigitte Bardot?

-Yes.

0:28:470:28:50

All right. OK.

0:28:500:28:51

So, I left Maria to watch over the hair and make-up,

0:28:510:28:54

and I left the picture.

0:28:540:28:56

Ready? OK. Bye, you guys.

0:28:560:28:57

Call me if you need - if you think of anything.

0:28:570:28:58

-Bye!

-All right.

0:28:580:29:01

Look, none of us have the iconic status of Cyndi Lauper,

0:29:010:29:04

but we have been around the block a little bit collectively,

0:29:040:29:07

and I don't feel any respect for that from Cyndi.

0:29:070:29:10

Cyndi doesn't think that you or I...

0:29:100:29:12

I mean, we should just be called two tur...

0:29:120:29:14

two turnips and we just fell off the truck.

0:29:140:29:16

Let's move on to getting you ready for this interview, right?

0:29:180:29:20

The one thing I would always start every interview out with

0:29:200:29:23

is a positive.

0:29:230:29:24

The guys were gone, so I wanted to prepare Luke

0:29:240:29:26

for the interview with People magazine.

0:29:260:29:27

People is such a great opportunity for him.

0:29:270:29:29

Never use these words - "I'm tired."

0:29:290:29:32

Never, ever say that to anybody, and I'll tell you why.

0:29:320:29:35

If I was interviewing you and I'm like,

0:29:350:29:37

I just got out of bed to come over here

0:29:370:29:39

and interview you, and your opening response is,

0:29:390:29:41

"Yeah, I'm pretty burnt out. It was a long flight..."

0:29:410:29:43

You just say, "You know what? I'm doing great.

0:29:430:29:45

"Thank you for taking YOUR time to do this with me."

0:29:450:29:47

-Yeah, I've got it.

-It's the truth. "Thank you."

0:29:470:29:49

And I can't tell you how many times I've done that.

0:29:490:29:51

'Bret and I talked a little bit about some media training,'

0:29:510:29:54

and I think Bret gave me some great ideas,

0:29:540:29:56

stuff that's worked for him through the years.

0:29:560:29:58

Go to shake my hand. You say, "Bret, how you doing?"

0:29:580:30:00

-Bret, how you doing?

-I don't know. I'm tired.

0:30:000:30:02

-Where do we go?

-Yeah, there's nowhere.

0:30:020:30:04

Now my heart... My heart was pounding to meet you.

0:30:040:30:06

They're thinking, "You lucky son of a bitch, and you're tired?"

0:30:060:30:09

-Now my interview's about me being drunk and no-one gives a

-BLEEP.

0:30:090:30:12

How's it going today, Bret?

0:30:120:30:14

Today I can openly admit that I'm a little hung over/tired,

0:30:140:30:17

cos last night after our big win, we celebrated, and it was awesome.

0:30:170:30:20

All right. That was my two cents for the day.

0:30:200:30:22

Hey, that's good, though, man. That's good.

0:30:220:30:25

Think about what you can say, not what you can't,

0:30:250:30:28

because you're thinking about the wrong things.

0:30:280:30:30

-Well, it creates fear, and it just...

-Right!

0:30:300:30:32

And, you know, in the long run, I'm just going to be like this.

0:30:320:30:34

Uh-huh.

0:30:340:30:35

Cyndi went out to do the wardrobe,

0:30:350:30:37

and we stayed back to do the media training

0:30:370:30:39

and also to start the bio and hair and make-up.

0:30:390:30:43

IF they're like, "Oh, what was your past?"

0:30:430:30:45

That's far too broad.

0:30:450:30:47

Say, "What would you like to know about it?"

0:30:470:30:49

Ooh, let me write that down.

0:30:490:30:50

That's a whole lot easier to answer.

0:30:500:30:51

Can I have a piece of paper?

0:30:510:30:53

-You know how to power-shop?

-We're going to power-shop.

0:30:530:30:55

Come on. I know how to power-shop. Come on.

0:30:550:30:57

We left at 12:30 to go shopping, and we had to be back by 3:30.

0:30:570:31:01

I was extremely worried that we weren't going to get it done.

0:31:010:31:04

-So, we'll head right upstairs.

-Yeah.

0:31:040:31:07

Cyndi was going shopping,

0:31:070:31:09

and she was heading into big stores.

0:31:090:31:11

I was very worried...

0:31:110:31:12

Let's go, go, go.

0:31:120:31:13

..she was going to keep looking

0:31:130:31:14

for that perfect, perfect something

0:31:140:31:16

and that we weren't going to come home with anything.

0:31:160:31:18

Are you focused with me?

0:31:180:31:19

I just kept trying to make it happen,

0:31:190:31:21

grabbing the clothes and just going to the register

0:31:210:31:23

time after time... Ah!

0:31:230:31:26

Time after time to pay for the clothes.

0:31:260:31:28

-Thank you so much.

-Thank you!

0:31:280:31:30

And then I keep going back to her, "Cyndi, we've got to go.

0:31:300:31:33

"We have got to go."

0:31:330:31:34

-Thank you so much, sweetheart.

-Bye!

0:31:340:31:37

We'll make your press kit nice.

0:31:370:31:38

There will be an 8x10. There will be your CD.

0:31:380:31:41

There will be this bio with all your credentials.

0:31:410:31:44

Luke and I stayed back, and we're getting into

0:31:440:31:47

making this press kit and putting it together,

0:31:470:31:48

and this is definitely one of the things we're being judged on.

0:31:480:31:51

Here's what I got so far. I think you're going to like this.

0:31:510:31:53

"The only music that was ever right for Luke Bryan

0:31:530:31:56

"Was country music.

0:31:560:31:57

He knew it from birth." You know what I mean?

0:31:570:31:59

"Birth" May be... Nah.

0:31:590:32:01

"Birth" Sounds a little... That sounds funky to me.

0:32:010:32:03

OK. Um... I'll change "Birth."

0:32:030:32:06

"He knew it from the first time

0:32:060:32:07

he heard Mark Chesnutt's Brother Jukebox."

0:32:070:32:10

Nah. Uh...

0:32:100:32:12

Hold on.

0:32:150:32:16

I don't want to make it sound like Chesnutt

0:32:160:32:18

is the biggest influence I have.

0:32:180:32:19

No, no. I understand what you mean.

0:32:190:32:21

Don't fear me giving you an identity more.

0:32:210:32:23

That's kind of what I think you're looking for.

0:32:230:32:25

Well, yeah. Let's...

0:32:250:32:27

Let me try this.

0:32:270:32:28

"In the words of his fans from the Nut House..."

0:32:280:32:29

Can I say that?

0:32:290:32:30

I wouldn't use... Well, read that back.

0:32:300:32:33

There's something a little off in that.

0:32:330:32:35

OK. You got it.

0:32:350:32:36

What I like about Luke is he knows exactly what he wants,

0:32:360:32:39

and what I don't like about Luke is he knows exactly what he wants.

0:32:390:32:42

So, I know that this is going to be...

0:32:420:32:44

Without a doubt, this is going to be tough.

0:32:440:32:46

I put, "He is much more pipe than hype."

0:32:460:32:50

The "Pipes" Thing is a little...

0:32:500:32:52

Keep going without saying that,

0:32:520:32:53

and let's see how that does.

0:32:530:32:55

OK.

0:32:550:32:56

I think she should wear

0:33:020:33:04

the light leather jacket with no sleeves.

0:33:040:33:06

After all of our shopping, we went back to our photo studio

0:33:060:33:09

cos Cyndi wanted to be part of the make-up process.

0:33:090:33:12

They're going to do her all up for this interview.

0:33:120:33:14

Oh, God. She's going to look like Frankenstein.

0:33:140:33:16

Maybe not.

0:33:160:33:18

No, they said they're doing mellow make-up,

0:33:180:33:20

-like what you said.

-Yeah?

-That's what they said.

0:33:200:33:24

-Hi.

-Hi, Sharon!

0:33:240:33:26

Sharon's been sick, and she missed my entire task.

0:33:280:33:30

That's Emily West. Sharon Osbourne.

0:33:300:33:33

Nice to meet you.

0:33:330:33:34

-Hi.

-Hug.

0:33:340:33:35

I'm so sorry you're so sick.

0:33:350:33:37

Hello, there! Are you all right?

0:33:370:33:39

-I'm good.

-Oh.

0:33:390:33:41

-We were given two artists to try to make over...

-Uh-huh.

0:33:410:33:45

And do press kits on and do some media training.

0:33:450:33:47

It's just my luck that I wasn't here

0:33:470:33:51

and that I couldn't say, "All right, this one's mine.

0:33:510:33:53

"I'll take this."

0:33:530:33:55

Well, Cyndi went nuts for her.

0:33:550:33:57

She just heard her voice and heard her music.

0:33:570:34:00

-You don't know all this stuff, huh?

-She did?

0:34:000:34:01

I mean, to come up with a bio

0:34:010:34:03

and to come up with an imagery for an artist,

0:34:030:34:07

I can do it in my sleep.

0:34:070:34:08

Sharon's back.

0:34:100:34:12

And then in came Hurricane Cyndi,

0:34:120:34:14

and she started trying to re-micromanage everything.

0:34:140:34:17

Did you follow the map, or you just decided to do it?

0:34:170:34:20

No, I followed the map of just more of the line around the eye.

0:34:200:34:24

The make-up, honestly - they gave her the apple cheeks.

0:34:240:34:27

I was horrified.

0:34:270:34:28

And is this the Brigitte Bardot look?

0:34:280:34:30

That was the picture with the lining,

0:34:300:34:32

cos with the Brigitte Bardot,

0:34:320:34:33

it has more of that lining around the eyes.

0:34:330:34:36

And it went up.

0:34:360:34:37

Maria watched over the hair and make-up.

0:34:370:34:39

You know, it would be different if I didn't leave a picture,

0:34:390:34:42

but I wanted them to follow the picture,

0:34:420:34:43

and we all agreed, "OK, like this picture,"

0:34:440:34:46

but it wasn't like the picture.

0:34:460:34:47

You always wear your rouge this close, right?

0:34:470:34:51

Well, when she smiles, that's where it...

0:34:510:34:52

-I understand, but I don't want it like that.

-OK. OK.

0:34:520:34:55

I want it a little flatter here.

0:34:550:34:57

Cyndi hated the make-up. I thought it was fine.

0:34:570:34:59

A little bit of Photoshop, we'll be good to go.

0:34:590:35:01

Just open this up a little bit. Wipe it down.

0:35:010:35:04

I'm... I'm kind of doing that with the powder instead of...

0:35:040:35:06

Because, remember, I airbrushed her, so, then, I don't want this...

0:35:060:35:08

-You airbrushed her?

-Yeah.

0:35:080:35:10

Did you really?

0:35:100:35:12

You spray-painted this kid?!

0:35:120:35:14

She's 20-something! You don't spray-paint them.

0:35:140:35:17

You spray the old buzzards, not the kids.

0:35:170:35:20

She looks pretty heavily made-up.

0:35:200:35:23

You can't see her skin any more.

0:35:230:35:25

I made her wipe down the cheeks, and I thought, "Ay-yi-yi!"

0:35:250:35:29

We're going to wait to try everything on,

0:35:290:35:30

but we want to get her in her first thing.

0:35:300:35:32

Yeah, get her in her first thing.

0:35:320:35:33

Cyndi thinks she's right and everybody else is stupid.

0:35:330:35:37

Hey, Sharon, can I speak to you a minute, please?

0:35:370:35:40

But she listens to Sharon.

0:35:400:35:42

I don't like the coat with that blouse.

0:35:420:35:44

I think it's wrong.

0:35:440:35:45

And I think it's heavy to wear

0:35:450:35:48

-when you're sitting and talking to somebody.

-Mm-hmm.

0:35:480:35:50

This is how Cyndi and I make our living.

0:35:500:35:52

This is what we do professionally,

0:35:520:35:55

and we've both done extremely well out of it.

0:35:550:35:58

So, yes, she's going to ask me for my opinion

0:35:580:36:01

over all the girls.

0:36:010:36:04

It's just the way it is.

0:36:040:36:05

It's not about you, you. It's about the task.

0:36:050:36:08

-You've got to feel comfortable.

-She liked the grey.

0:36:080:36:10

It was Maria who didn't like the grey.

0:36:100:36:12

-What's up, Bret?

-How you doing, man?

0:36:180:36:20

-I'm good, man. How are you?

-Great to see you.

-You too.

0:36:200:36:22

-I'm building up Luke's bio right now.

-Yeah?

0:36:220:36:25

You know what? Here. You want to have a seat for a minute?

0:36:250:36:26

Yeah, sit down. We're just setting up for the photo shoot.

0:36:260:36:29

The guys are out collecting everything.

0:36:290:36:30

When you were given the task this morning

0:36:300:36:34

and they said, "Makeover,"

0:36:340:36:36

what did you think that... What did you think they meant by that?

0:36:360:36:39

Well, you know, here's my thing.

0:36:390:36:40

He has a definite line as to where his comfort zone is,

0:36:400:36:44

so what I said is, "I'm going to do a couple things.

0:36:440:36:46

"Show me where the end of your comfort zone is,

0:36:460:36:48

"And then I'm going to kick you in the butt

0:36:480:36:50

"right underneath there just about this much more."

0:36:500:36:52

"And take you across just a little more."

0:36:520:36:54

"I'm going to shove you across this much more."

0:36:540:36:55

Come on in. We can talk about this.

0:36:550:36:57

Didn't know this guy was going to be here.

0:36:570:36:59

Oh, this guy's great. Exactly.

0:36:590:37:00

So, how are you feeling about all this, Luke?

0:37:000:37:02

-I'm good.

-You're comfortable with it?

0:37:020:37:04

Obviously, coming in, it's a little scary. You know the deal.

0:37:040:37:06

When they tell you that some guys that you've never met

0:37:060:37:09

are going to try to market you in a new way,

0:37:090:37:11

you're like, "Oh, gosh, there's no telling."

0:37:110:37:13

But it's been great, man. We're trying to figure some things out.

0:37:130:37:16

I'm a little curious as to which direction they're going to go in.

0:37:160:37:19

I couldn't really tell, cos they didn't have

0:37:190:37:21

any of the wardrobe or anything there yet,

0:37:210:37:23

but Bret seemed to be comfortable and confident

0:37:230:37:26

in what he was doing.

0:37:260:37:27

Somebody told me

0:37:270:37:28

that one of your little girls has some health issues.

0:37:280:37:31

-Yeah, yeah.

-Yeah?

0:37:310:37:32

I have two daughters, Raine and Jorja,

0:37:320:37:33

and being a type I diabetic,

0:37:330:37:35

the chances of my kids getting it are about 50%.

0:37:350:37:38

And the minute that Kristi called me, their mom,

0:37:380:37:41

and said that she was sick, man, my heart... Man, oh, man.

0:37:410:37:45

So we're waiting for the blood results today.

0:37:450:37:47

You know, I've said so many prayers.

0:37:470:37:49

I don't even know what to say any more. I'm just like...

0:37:490:37:51

But what made me lose it, she was scared, and she's like,

0:37:510:37:54

"Dad, do I have to take a bunch of shots like you?"

0:37:540:37:56

And I was like... You know,

0:37:560:37:57

I don't know if you've ever had that happen,

0:37:570:37:59

where that lump... You know what I mean?

0:37:590:38:00

I was like...

0:38:000:38:02

Yeah, yeah. I've had that lump in my throat several times.

0:38:020:38:05

Trace and myself have kids,

0:38:050:38:07

and I think it was great to be able to relate on that level

0:38:070:38:10

of why we're here doing this.

0:38:100:38:12

-Thank you.

-I empathise with you.

0:38:120:38:14

And, man, I really hope everything works out good.

0:38:140:38:15

Right back at you. You too, man.

0:38:150:38:17

Thank you for saying that. That means the world to me, for real.

0:38:170:38:19

-Good luck, man.

-Thanks.

0:38:190:38:21

-Good luck in your task, too.

-Thank you.

0:38:210:38:23

I like this in there.

0:38:230:38:25

Yeah, she's going to, but I kind of...

0:38:250:38:27

-You're so big!

-Hello.

0:38:330:38:35

Could you take Goldberg if you wanted to? Summer.

0:38:350:38:37

I don't want to have to find out.

0:38:370:38:40

Hello, Emily.

0:38:400:38:41

Hi, Trace. How are you?

0:38:410:38:42

I'm fine. How are you?

0:38:420:38:43

-It's so good to see you.

-You too, darling.

0:38:430:38:46

Look at you. You smell like coffee and leather, just like a man.

0:38:460:38:49

Oh! I love this girl.

0:38:490:38:51

It was a beehive in the women's room.

0:38:510:38:53

They all seemed to be very focused on what they were doing.

0:38:530:38:57

Is this the side you part on, besides the middle?

0:38:570:38:59

I like the way it's going now. It's cool.

0:38:590:39:02

What do you think of our makeover so far?

0:39:020:39:05

Well, you guys are awfully busy.

0:39:050:39:07

Huge contrast from the other room.

0:39:070:39:09

Girls in here are all playing well together, or...

0:39:090:39:13

Trying to.

0:39:130:39:14

I sensed a little dissension there.

0:39:140:39:17

A couple of the ladies, you know,

0:39:170:39:19

were just kind of just looking, you know.

0:39:190:39:21

Ah, I don't... You know.

0:39:210:39:22

They didn't say anything.

0:39:220:39:23

I just kind of sensed that maybe not everybody was on board,

0:39:230:39:27

which I think is a mistake.

0:39:270:39:29

Should we pin it a little bit?

0:39:290:39:31

Cyndi Lauper influenced fashion

0:39:310:39:33

on a scale that most people can't even imagine.

0:39:330:39:37

I mean, there were a whole generation of young girls

0:39:370:39:39

trying to dress like Cyndi Lauper.

0:39:390:39:41

If it was me, I'd give her free rein,

0:39:410:39:43

let her do whatever she wanted to.

0:39:430:39:46

And I know you have the patience

0:39:460:39:48

to be very good at this game

0:39:480:39:50

because of the man you have to work with all the time.

0:39:500:39:54

I'm not talking about Ozzy. I'm talking about Piers Morgan.

0:39:540:39:57

Oh, please! Piers!

0:39:570:40:00

God!

0:40:000:40:01

I don't have the proper vision for something like this,

0:40:040:40:07

because all it would do is convolute what...

0:40:070:40:10

what's going on with...with Bret.

0:40:100:40:13

This is right up Bret Michaels' alley.

0:40:130:40:15

I mean, I... What am I going to do?

0:40:150:40:16

Tell Bret Michaels how to put a promo pack together?

0:40:160:40:19

Am I going to tell Bret Michaels

0:40:190:40:20

how to do a photo shoot for a musician?

0:40:200:40:23

Let's do it.

0:40:230:40:24

We had a photo shoot coming up,

0:40:260:40:28

so we literally had to go out,

0:40:280:40:29

get some clothes, get whatever we needed

0:40:290:40:31

to sort of make that photo shoot come to life.

0:40:310:40:34

Thank God that Luke was very similar in build to Curtis,

0:40:360:40:40

because I think we saved a lot of time

0:40:400:40:42

by going back to the hotel

0:40:420:40:43

and just grabbing a lot of stuff that Curtis had.

0:40:430:40:45

Nice work, brother.

0:40:450:40:47

Oh, God.

0:40:470:40:48

-Let's go.

-Go!

0:40:480:40:51

We would really appreciate it if you could hustle.

0:40:510:40:54

What I'm looking for for him

0:40:560:40:58

is I need to bring out the rock star in him.

0:40:580:41:00

I need to make him more identifiable.

0:41:000:41:03

-What I don't want to get is hokey old-school.

-Absolutely.

0:41:030:41:06

'The photo shoot is starting in ten minutes,'

0:41:060:41:08

and we've got to get this done. The guys aren't back yet,

0:41:080:41:10

and I'm really starting to get nervous.

0:41:100:41:12

Is there another way we can go?

0:41:120:41:15

There's no other way to get out of here?

0:41:150:41:18

cos this is a parking lot.

0:41:180:41:20

-Tell me what you're here doing.

-Make-up and hair.

0:41:200:41:22

That's all I needed to know.

0:41:220:41:23

That's perfect. And I apologise. We'll be just a minute.

0:41:230:41:26

I've had so many things going so many different directions.

0:41:260:41:28

Can I help you bring stuff up, anybody?

0:41:280:41:30

I probably would have liked to have kept Bill with me

0:41:300:41:33

just to get...you know, stay calm and focus on a couple other things

0:41:330:41:37

that we needed to get done, but there is no doubt

0:41:370:41:39

I bit off probably a lot more than I could chew.

0:41:390:41:43

The photo shoot started at 4.00 till 5.00, OK?

0:41:430:41:46

We're going to be there at 4.15.

0:41:460:41:49

We're going to have 45 minutes to nail the shots.

0:41:490:41:53

I'm going to call my guys and see how close they are.

0:41:530:41:56

-'Hello?'

-Hey, Bret.

0:41:590:42:01

-Hey. Who's this?

-Goldberg.

-Hey, Goldberg. Where you guys at?

0:42:010:42:04

We're close, ten minutes away.

0:42:040:42:06

As soon as you get here, I could use you, man.

0:42:060:42:08

'We finished the bio.

0:42:080:42:09

'Now I need you to help me put it all together.'

0:42:090:42:11

You got it, buddy. You got it, man.

0:42:110:42:13

We're hauling ass, dude.

0:42:130:42:14

We've just...we've had a couple traffic snafus.

0:42:140:42:17

OK, here we go. You ready?

0:42:170:42:20

So, I mean, there's no other way to get out of here?

0:42:200:42:22

This is painful.

0:42:220:42:23

We're going to have 20 minutes, realistically, to shoot this guy.

0:42:230:42:26

The funny thing about Bill Goldberg is,

0:42:260:42:28

if he ever gets angry, he just snarls.

0:42:280:42:31

SNARLING

0:42:310:42:33

I don't want to see him explode, and I think he's close.

0:42:330:42:36

God, you're kidding me.

0:42:360:42:38

Stressful, isn't it?

0:42:380:42:40

And what I want to do is really blow him out.

0:42:490:42:51

I want it to look great and, you, just confident.

0:42:510:42:54

-Here we go.

-All right, just give me your chin down a bit.

0:42:540:42:57

The photo shoot is upon us,

0:42:570:42:58

and the guys aren't back, and we've got no clothes.

0:42:580:43:01

Inside, I was getting concerned

0:43:010:43:03

that Luke was going to be wearing one shirt.

0:43:030:43:05

Down here, Curtis.

0:43:070:43:09

Little smile.

0:43:090:43:11

Terrific.

0:43:120:43:13

OK. Let's take a look at these.

0:43:130:43:15

Let's do a few more like this. See, that looks killer, man.

0:43:150:43:19

-There's my shoppers.

-Yeah.

0:43:210:43:23

And just go with me. Get that one on.

0:43:230:43:26

By the time we arrived back with all the clothes,

0:43:260:43:29

we just quickly got him changed and went for it.

0:43:290:43:31

It's different for me, I'll tell you that.

0:43:310:43:33

-But I got to go with you.

-Trust me.

0:43:330:43:36

OK. Let's get that outfit out of there.

0:43:360:43:38

Now I'll give you this and then the leather jacket.

0:43:380:43:40

Just see what that looks like. Do we have a necklace?

0:43:400:43:43

Put that on. Just try.

0:43:430:43:45

That looks manly on you. That looks good.

0:43:450:43:47

'You know, Luke definitely got outside of his comfort zone,'

0:43:470:43:49

but he rolled with it.

0:43:490:43:51

We got 20 minutes left with the photographer.

0:43:530:43:54

We want to get as many good shots as we can.

0:43:540:43:56

Set your chin on it,

0:43:560:43:57

and you got to aim this right down the pipe.

0:43:570:44:00

-That's what I'm talking about.

-That's good.

0:44:000:44:02

Yeah, you know what I mean?

0:44:020:44:03

It has a little Elvis vibe going on, too.

0:44:030:44:05

Maybe a little softer in the face. There you go. Right.

0:44:050:44:07

Let's slick his hair back. I mean, I'm talking quickly.

0:44:070:44:10

Great.

0:44:100:44:11

We're running so out of time.

0:44:110:44:13

Great.

0:44:130:44:15

Smile. Give him a big smile.

0:44:150:44:17

Smile, man!

0:44:170:44:19

Them teeth are going to sell records for you.

0:44:190:44:21

See? Smile!

0:44:210:44:23

Come on, man. You got them pretty white teeth.

0:44:230:44:26

Goldberg, the entire time we were doing this,

0:44:260:44:28

kept yelling, "Smile! Smile!"

0:44:280:44:31

Smile, big man! Come on!

0:44:310:44:33

I think Luke was so scared of him that he just, like...

0:44:330:44:35

He was doing this really cheesy smile,

0:44:350:44:37

cos I think he thought Goldberg was going to beat him up.

0:44:370:44:39

-Big smile, man. There you go.

-He's a sucker for the smiles.

0:44:390:44:42

No, man. That sells, bro.

0:44:420:44:44

It sells. You've got big-ass teeth.

0:44:440:44:46

That's it. We're done. Let's take a look at these.

0:44:460:44:48

I'm going to wake up in the middle of the night

0:44:480:44:50

going, "Smile, damn it!"

0:44:500:44:52

OK. Just don't bunch up those roses.

0:44:530:44:56

-Just separate them.

-OK.

0:44:560:44:58

Part of the criteria of winning this baby

0:44:580:45:00

is the press kit,

0:45:000:45:01

so the press kit needed to be smoking.

0:45:010:45:04

The one that's coming out of her head, we have to change.

0:45:040:45:06

Oh, but pull it up a little.

0:45:060:45:08

What do you guys think?

0:45:080:45:10

It's nice when she smiles, but you know what?

0:45:100:45:12

Can she give you a tiny bit more profile?

0:45:120:45:16

That's great!

0:45:200:45:22

It sounds so simple, but actually putting her in black

0:45:220:45:27

gave her somewhat of an attitude that she didn't have before.

0:45:270:45:31

Pretty. Open your eyes.

0:45:330:45:35

Big eyes, big eyes! Open, open wide!

0:45:350:45:38

I tried to stand along the sidelines, but it was hard to watch.

0:45:390:45:43

Straight hips.

0:45:430:45:45

I started modelling when I was 14 years old.

0:45:450:45:48

I taught my sister how to do photo shoots.

0:45:480:45:50

I've helped out some of the girls

0:45:500:45:51

within World Wrestling Entertainment.

0:45:510:45:53

I also know how to use a camera.

0:45:530:45:55

So, doesn't that make me a candidate to be able to help?

0:45:550:45:59

Can you do a couple where you look off, OK?

0:46:000:46:04

You don't have enough hair on the side.

0:46:040:46:06

You know, I was trying to direct, and then Maria steps in there.

0:46:090:46:13

You know, she should have talked to me and asked me.

0:46:130:46:15

A minute and a half. Please step out.

0:46:150:46:17

Please step out. Yeah, yeah. Go ahead.

0:46:170:46:19

No, you're in. You go. Connect, connect.

0:46:190:46:21

Let me know when we have 30 seconds, will you?

0:46:210:46:22

-OK.

-Great.

0:46:220:46:23

It's hard to get cut off all the time.

0:46:230:46:26

Yeah, some close-ups.

0:46:260:46:28

In my own thing, I don't put up with that.

0:46:280:46:32

Everybody has their job.

0:46:320:46:33

Sometimes church and state cross over,

0:46:330:46:36

and sometimes they don't.

0:46:360:46:38

You're beautiful. You're beautiful. You're strong. You're every woman.

0:46:380:46:41

Maria tried to step in, and Cyndi got annoyed.

0:46:420:46:45

I do think Maria has some great ideas,

0:46:450:46:47

but Maria also has to recognise,

0:46:470:46:48

right or wrong, Cyndi is Project Manager,

0:46:480:46:51

so the boss is saying, "I want this to be my deal,"

0:46:510:46:54

then let it be her deal.

0:46:540:46:56

You can't take it personally.

0:46:560:46:57

Straight underneath.

0:46:570:46:58

That's beautiful.

0:47:000:47:01

-OK, it's a wrap.

-All righty.

0:47:010:47:03

Thank you!

0:47:030:47:04

Cyndi has a vision, but Cyndi has

0:47:040:47:07

this very disorganised way of doing things,

0:47:070:47:11

but she gets there in the end. She really, really does.

0:47:110:47:13

And in her own way, I think she's pulled it off. I do.

0:47:130:47:16

Oh, my gosh! I love that!

0:47:160:47:19

There are some really lovely ones.

0:47:190:47:20

-That's cute!

-And you know what?

0:47:200:47:22

That looks nothing like what you've done before.

0:47:220:47:25

It totally doesn't.

0:47:250:47:27

If the ruffles were in a different place,

0:47:320:47:34

it would look really nice.

0:47:340:47:35

There's one that I know she'll like, but I don't know...

0:47:350:47:38

-Hi!

-Hello!

0:47:380:47:39

-Hi!

-How are you?

0:47:390:47:40

Good. I'm Cindy Sanz. Nice to meet you.

0:47:400:47:43

Emily had to be dressed

0:47:430:47:45

and ready for a People magazine interview.

0:47:450:47:47

Maria had already media-trained her.

0:47:470:47:49

So, Emily's over here. OK?

0:47:490:47:51

Yes. We're just going to step out and give you guys a moment.

0:47:510:47:54

Do you want to just introduce them?

0:47:540:47:56

Yes, of course.

0:47:560:47:57

-Hi. I'm Cindy Sanz from People Country.

-Hey!

0:47:570:47:59

Nice to meet you.

0:47:590:48:01

Nice to meet you! Good to see you.

0:48:010:48:02

-You look great.

-Thank you. So do you.

0:48:020:48:03

Do you guys want to sit here?

0:48:030:48:05

-Sure.

-We consciously said, "Let's leave that space

0:48:050:48:08

"So that Emily doesn't feel nervous with us, like,

0:48:080:48:10

"you know, right over her, like, you know, nervous moms."

0:48:100:48:13

"I hope she says the right thing."

0:48:130:48:14

Now, certainly, there's a lot

0:48:140:48:16

of, like, terrific women in Nashville these days...

0:48:160:48:18

Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood,

0:48:180:48:20

Julianne Hough, Kellie Pickler.

0:48:200:48:22

I mean, how do you set yourself apart?

0:48:220:48:24

Well, you know, I have always had a tendency

0:48:240:48:27

to say... My mom says that I say things

0:48:270:48:29

that people think but don't have the guts to say,

0:48:290:48:32

and when I first moved to town,

0:48:320:48:34

I really didn't know how to sculpt a song.

0:48:340:48:37

'I'd met Emily West a few times before,'

0:48:370:48:39

and Emily's always been really bubbly and easy to talk to.

0:48:390:48:42

I felt like now she's a little more focused.

0:48:420:48:45

'She had things that she clearly wanted to say.'

0:48:450:48:47

Well, this has been a great time for you.

0:48:470:48:49

-You have a new single.

-I do.

0:48:490:48:50

And Keith Urban is singing backup on it?

0:48:500:48:52

Yes, he is.

0:48:520:48:53

I wrote this song, you know,

0:48:530:48:55

out of a really, really bad time in my life

0:48:550:48:58

with my mom and dad and their separation,

0:48:580:49:01

and it was written out of pain,

0:49:010:49:04

and it's been very much a healing song.

0:49:040:49:07

The interview that Cynthia did with me,

0:49:070:49:08

I felt ahold of my core,

0:49:080:49:10

cos she was asking me some serious questions,

0:49:100:49:12

and I didn't shy away and make a joke of it.

0:49:120:49:14

Well, thank you so much for your time.

0:49:140:49:15

It was great talking to you.

0:49:150:49:17

Thank you, Cindy. Thank you so much.

0:49:170:49:18

-Good luck with all of this.

-All right!

0:49:180:49:19

Maria gave me the confidence to breathe,

0:49:190:49:21

and she had such great advice to give me

0:49:210:49:23

about how to be interviewed.

0:49:230:49:25

I was a huge hit!

0:49:250:49:27

Did you listen?

0:49:280:49:29

SHARON: No. Tell me everything.

0:49:290:49:32

-I'm Cindy Sanz from People Country.

-Nice to meet you.

0:49:370:49:40

-How are you?

-Good to see you.

-Good to see you.

0:49:400:49:41

-You doing all right?

-Yeah. You look terrific.

0:49:410:49:43

Thank you, thank you.

0:49:430:49:44

People magazine is such a great opportunity for him.

0:49:440:49:47

I said, "When you sit down in an interview,

0:49:470:49:48

don't sit down and say, "Look, I'm burnt out. I'm tired."

0:49:480:49:52

I said, "You don't have to jump around and do jumping jacks,"

0:49:520:49:54

but I said, "These people are helping to break your career."

0:49:540:49:58

There's so many times you're tired out here and you're run down,

0:49:580:50:01

but you just have to... When you get on stage,

0:50:010:50:03

it just has to all be worth it,

0:50:030:50:04

and you have to give it all you got while you're up there.

0:50:040:50:07

So, what do you think it will take to push you to that next level?

0:50:070:50:09

-Ultimately, the right songs.

-Uh-huh.

0:50:090:50:11

You know, looking back, maybe there's one

0:50:110:50:13

that I would have liked to have shuffled around,

0:50:130:50:16

but, you know, I'm glad... I'm glad that I...

0:50:160:50:18

You know, I feel like you always have to be smart

0:50:180:50:20

and listen for those right songs, too.

0:50:200:50:22

Mm-hmm.

0:50:220:50:23

I think Luke could have not said "You know" 40 times less,

0:50:230:50:27

but, "You know... you know...you know..."

0:50:270:50:31

You know, my... you know, my mistakes or my...

0:50:310:50:34

my highs and lows are my family's highs and lows,

0:50:340:50:37

and when I come off the road, it's... Excuse me...

0:50:370:50:40

-I want to do whatever I can do...

-Uh-oh.

0:50:400:50:41

..to spend as much time with my wife and my son

0:50:410:50:44

as much as I can.

0:50:440:50:46

And, you know, she's sending me pictures... Excuse me...

0:50:460:50:49

..with little captions and stuff like that,

0:50:490:50:51

saying, "I love you, Daddy," And stuff like that.

0:50:510:50:53

And, you know, the whole experience

0:50:530:50:55

has been just completely fulfilling.

0:50:550:50:58

-All right. Well, thank you so much.

-Thank you for your time.

0:50:580:51:00

-It was great talking to you.

-And I apologise for the little few yawns.

0:51:000:51:02

Oh. You've had a long day.

0:51:020:51:04

Yeah. Well, not only the day.

0:51:040:51:05

The night was somewhat interesting, so...

0:51:050:51:08

We'd actually worked with Luke Bryan

0:51:080:51:09

a number of times on some different stories.

0:51:090:51:11

I think Luke is a little tired.

0:51:110:51:12

It had been a busy, long day,

0:51:120:51:14

and sometimes he seemed a little off.

0:51:140:51:16

He needs focus, and he needs to really plan out what he wants to be

0:51:160:51:20

and to make it happen for himself.

0:51:200:51:22

Hey, Luke, guys. We got to really focus now.

0:51:240:51:27

Come on in. Let's start looking at these.

0:51:270:51:29

It's a little, uh...

0:51:290:51:31

I mean, the outfit is what it is. It's a little, uh, Al Pacino.

0:51:310:51:35

The deal with the guitar, like I said,

0:51:350:51:37

I've already told you - it's way out of my box.

0:51:370:51:40

What do you think about that?

0:51:400:51:42

Eh, almost good.

0:51:420:51:44

-Not good.

-You tell me.

0:51:440:51:46

It's a little too tough there.

0:51:460:51:47

This task is a tricky one, you know,

0:51:470:51:49

because you're working with an artist

0:51:490:51:50

who has his own look

0:51:500:51:52

and dresses the way he does

0:51:520:51:53

cos he feels comfortable, like we all do.

0:51:530:51:55

That's a little weird look, though.

0:51:550:51:57

Luke's been tough to work with

0:51:570:51:58

in the fact that we're supposed to be giving him a makeover.

0:51:580:52:01

He doesn't want to look any different

0:52:010:52:02

than how he looks right now.

0:52:020:52:03

Kind of looks like a senior picture.

0:52:030:52:06

OK. Keep going.

0:52:060:52:07

Eh. Eh.

0:52:070:52:09

Eh. Eh.

0:52:090:52:11

Eh. Eh.

0:52:110:52:13

Eh. No.

0:52:130:52:15

Eh.

0:52:150:52:17

Look at that Scarface Guy.

0:52:280:52:29

He can either say, "I'll play you a song"

0:52:290:52:32

-or "I'll

-BLEEP

-kill you."

0:52:320:52:33

Oh, my!

0:52:370:52:39

There's no, uh... There's nothing on here.

0:52:390:52:41

-Oh

-BLEEP.

0:52:410:52:43

-What?

-I didn't touch up.

0:52:430:52:45

I thought the press kit looked awful.

0:52:450:52:46

This is such a beautiful young lady,

0:52:460:52:49

but even the most beautiful young women

0:52:490:52:51

need a little touch-up here and there.

0:52:510:52:52

I don't have her name here,

0:52:520:52:54

and I should have made it a little smaller,

0:52:540:52:56

and underneath, you put her name,

0:52:560:52:57

and you put "Capitol." All right, well,

0:52:570:52:59

that's going to be a big mistake, but you know what?

0:52:590:53:01

I did my best. There was no time.

0:53:010:53:03

We just have to be better than the guys.

0:53:030:53:05

I think you look cool, but your mojo got to feel it.

0:53:050:53:08

-If you don't feel it...

-Are you comfortable with it?

0:53:080:53:10

I'm a little uncomfortable with the chain.

0:53:100:53:12

This is all about kind of reinventing you a little bit,

0:53:120:53:15

so maybe you ought to go out on a limb,

0:53:150:53:17

even if you feel uncomfortable.

0:53:170:53:19

The task was to take the musician to the next level,

0:53:190:53:22

but we made him a little uncomfortable, you know,

0:53:220:53:24

but that's the fine line

0:53:240:53:26

that you don't want to cross,

0:53:260:53:28

because if you make someone uncomfortable,

0:53:280:53:30

it can be a deterrent when they're trying to perform.

0:53:300:53:33

Look at that, man.

0:53:340:53:35

No-one's going to say anything about that to him.

0:53:350:53:37

That looks awesome.

0:53:370:53:39

What's the matter with you and the necklace?

0:53:390:53:41

It's just...it's a little outside my deal, but...

0:53:410:53:43

God!

0:53:430:53:45

If that's outside your deal right there,

0:53:450:53:46

you need to broaden your deal.

0:53:460:53:49

"You got to broaden your deal."

0:53:500:53:52

-Guys, let's put it in. We ready?

-Let's do it.

-Let's do it, man.

0:53:520:53:56

You call it. On three. One, two, three.

0:53:560:53:58

-ALL: Rocksolid.

-Baby!

0:53:580:54:01

So, the judges are Pete Fisher from the Grand Ole Opry,

0:54:060:54:09

Cynthia Sanz from People Country

0:54:090:54:11

and Mike Culotta - a great country DJ.

0:54:110:54:15

MUSIC PLAYING

0:54:150:54:18

One, two...

0:54:180:54:20

One, two, three, four!

0:54:200:54:22

Yeah, here we go!

0:54:290:54:30

# My daddy spent his life looking up at the sky

0:54:410:54:45

# He'd cuss, kick the dust

0:54:450:54:47

# Saying, "Son, it's way too dry"

0:54:470:54:49

# Clouds up in the city And the weatherman complains

0:54:490:54:54

# But where I come from Rain is a good thing... #

0:54:540:54:57

Here we go!

0:54:570:54:59

# Rain makes corn

0:54:590:55:01

# Corn makes whisky

# Whisky makes my baby

0:55:030:55:06

# Feel a little frisky... #

0:55:060:55:08

Luke Bryan's performance was magic.

0:55:080:55:11

There was some good mojo going on,

0:55:110:55:13

and I'd like to think it was my chain that did it,

0:55:130:55:15

-the old necklace.

-# Whisky makes my baby... #

0:55:150:55:18

Come on! # Feel a little frisky... #

0:55:180:55:20

I'm tapping my foot. I like it.

0:55:200:55:22

Who knows? Maybe I'll turn into a country fan.

0:55:220:55:24

(OFF-KEY) # Rain makes corn

0:55:240:55:26

# Corn makes whisky... #

0:55:260:55:29

OK. I'll keep cooking.

0:55:290:55:31

# Rain is a good thi-i-i-i-ng! #

0:55:310:55:35

Yeah!

0:55:370:55:38

Thank you so much, guys! Thank you!

0:55:390:55:42

Regardless of my leadership skills today

0:55:420:55:44

in a field where I had no clue, I think Luke did really good.

0:55:440:55:48

I truly believed we helped him go to the next level.

0:55:480:55:51

I really do.

0:55:510:55:52

All right, here we go.

0:55:560:55:57

On three, "Emily."

0:55:570:55:58

ALL: One, two, three.

0:55:580:55:59

-Emily!

-Tenacity!

-Emily!

-Emily!

0:55:590:56:01

Tenacity!

0:56:010:56:03

We headed into the performance.

0:56:070:56:08

Emily went on stage,

0:56:080:56:10

and we, as her...as her groupies,

0:56:100:56:13

stayed back and just watched our...

0:56:130:56:15

our rising star take the stage.

0:56:150:56:17

# Weatherman says it's gonna rain tonight

0:56:180:56:23

# The kind of storm where the basement floods

0:56:260:56:31

# You'll lose the lights

0:56:310:56:35

# You should have thought of that before

0:56:350:56:40

# Cos I'm not your blue sky any more... #

0:56:410:56:48

I do feel as though Emily made a nice make over.

0:56:500:56:52

I do feel like Cyndi achieved a different look

0:56:520:56:55

from the look that she walked in with.

0:56:550:56:56

# You should have thought of that before... #

0:56:560:56:58

Can I just say this woman has such a big talent?

0:56:580:57:03

Emily West is going to be a superstar.

0:57:030:57:06

# The weatherman says it's gonna rain toni-i-i-i-ght... #

0:57:060:57:14

I got a little caught up with this kid Emily because...

0:57:140:57:17

because Blue Sky makes me just cry.

0:57:170:57:20

She's all set up to walk forth in her path.

0:57:200:57:24

# I'm not your blue sky

0:57:240:57:31

# Any more. #

0:57:310:57:34

Thank you.

0:57:460:57:47

Well, I hope that we see each other again.

0:57:510:57:53

Can I talk to her private? Come here.

0:57:530:57:55

You can take all of this forward, all right?

0:57:550:57:59

And nothing happened to me till I was 30.

0:57:590:58:02

Sometimes life don't begin till then, all right?

0:58:020:58:06

Never give up.

0:58:060:58:08

You're not going to anyway.

0:58:080:58:10

I know the camera's on, but what am I going to do?

0:58:100:58:12

I can't talk to you anyway, and then I won't see you.

0:58:120:58:15

All right? But good luck to you.

0:58:150:58:17

You'll kill them, you know?

0:58:170:58:20

I know I affected her and I helped her,

0:58:200:58:23

and I gave her advice

0:58:230:58:26

to make her look really good and her feel really good.

0:58:260:58:30

-I love you, guys.

-I love you, too.

0:58:300:58:32

OK, bye.

0:58:320:58:33

Bye, honey.

0:58:330:58:34

So, what did you guys think?

0:58:390:58:42

Both performers did a great job. They really did.

0:58:420:58:45

They're two different types of performers,

0:58:450:58:47

and I think the teams had different approaches

0:58:470:58:49

as to how to prepare.

0:58:490:58:50

And, you know, I think the teams did a really good job

0:58:500:58:53

of not drifting too far away

0:58:530:58:54

and really kind of bringing out the good qualities.

0:58:540:58:57

But I think they both helped them, you know.

0:58:570:58:58

She looked a little more polished,

0:58:580:59:00

a little more sophisticated, and...and he, too.

0:59:000:59:03

I mean, he's sort of been

0:59:030:59:04

this kind of good-time guy in Nashville,

0:59:040:59:06

and he seemed like he has a little sleeker look this time.

0:59:060:59:09

Yeah, when I look at the materials

0:59:090:59:11

that the women came up with, you know, what I see here

0:59:110:59:14

is this is a lady with great personality.

0:59:140:59:18

There's a class about her.

0:59:180:59:20

But that wasn't on stage tonight.

0:59:200:59:22

-No.

-That wasn't on stage.

0:59:220:59:24

Still sophisticated from where she normally is.

0:59:240:59:26

It would be vibrant colours and some fun stuff.

0:59:260:59:28

In the press materials,

0:59:280:59:29

I'm not sure you really get that image of her.

0:59:290:59:31

You don't get the fun of Emily.

0:59:310:59:33

It's a beautiful picture,

0:59:330:59:34

but, to me, it's, like, really fashion-y.

0:59:340:59:36

She's got so much personality and she seems so approachable,

0:59:360:59:38

and this is a little formal.

0:59:380:59:39

You know, as far as the guys on Luke's team,

0:59:390:59:42

I always knew, you know, Luke Bryan

0:59:420:59:44

as kind of a guy with a smile on his face,

0:59:440:59:46

and so

0:59:460:59:47

I don't know if the brand really kind of goes here.

0:59:470:59:51

I just wish I would have seen a smile on his face here.

0:59:510:59:55

So, guys, which team did the better job with the makeover?

0:59:550:59:58

Ladies.

1:00:101:00:11

First of all, I'd like to thank Trace

1:00:311:00:33

for joining us on Celebrity Apprentice.

1:00:331:00:35

It's nice to have you back.

1:00:351:00:37

It's good to be here.

1:00:371:00:39

Sharon, how are you feeling?

1:00:391:00:40

So much better. Thank you, Mr Trump.

1:00:401:00:42

It looks good. Very good. So you're OK?

1:00:421:00:44

-Yeah, yeah.

-Good.

1:00:441:00:45

Cyndi, how'd your team do?

1:00:451:00:47

I think they did very well.

1:00:471:00:48

I was especially excited to work with Emily West.

1:00:481:00:53

I think...

1:00:531:00:54

Was she good?

1:00:541:00:56

-She's great.

-Did she have talent?

1:00:561:00:57

She's... She's great. She's one of the real deals.

1:00:571:01:01

Maria, what did you think of Cyndi?

1:01:011:01:04

Um, she knew definitely what she wanted,

1:01:041:01:07

and I really do wish - and I told her this already -

1:01:071:01:10

I wish that she would let us finish our thoughts

1:01:101:01:13

and finish our sentences.

1:01:131:01:15

Why wouldn't she let you finish your sentences or thoughts?

1:01:151:01:17

Cos she's very passionate, and she should be.

1:01:171:01:20

She's been in the entert...

1:01:201:01:22

Did you think it was wrong that she didn't?

1:01:221:01:24

I think that it would have benefited her

1:01:241:01:27

to listen a little bit more.

1:01:271:01:28

OK.

1:01:301:01:31

Let me ask you this, Maria.

1:01:311:01:33

You have a great personal style, according to everyone.

1:01:331:01:35

Who knows? But they say you have a great personal style.

1:01:351:01:38

Thank you.

1:01:381:01:39

Did Cyndi use you when it came to styling?

1:01:391:01:42

I kind of just inserted myself at the end.

1:01:421:01:44

I helped out with...

1:01:441:01:46

I sewed the dress

1:01:461:01:48

to make it a little bit tighter and more fitted.

1:01:481:01:50

I also made her push up the girls a little bit more

1:01:501:01:52

and helped her style her undergarments

1:01:521:01:55

so that they fit properly.

1:01:551:01:57

Good. So, Cyndi, did Maria help you?

1:01:571:02:01

She helped me, but sometimes she just sticks herself in there

1:02:011:02:04

when she shouldn't.

1:02:041:02:05

Overly aggressive?

1:02:051:02:07

No, no. It's not that.

1:02:071:02:09

She's compelled to do it, and I appreciate it,

1:02:091:02:13

but...for Emily,

1:02:131:02:16

she can have a little edge,

1:02:161:02:17

but too much edge doesn't match her music,

1:02:171:02:21

and that's what I was very clear about doing.

1:02:211:02:23

Maria, do you think they took the makeover far enough?

1:02:231:02:26

What do you think?

1:02:261:02:26

I do think that we could have taken it a little bit farther.

1:02:261:02:29

I think that we could have, you know,

1:02:291:02:31

done something a little edgier with her hair,

1:02:311:02:33

cos it ended up... her hair that she wore during the show

1:02:331:02:36

was pretty much the same that she usually wears.

1:02:361:02:37

Maria, why didn't you take it further?

1:02:371:02:39

If you think you could've taken it further, why didn't you?

1:02:391:02:42

Yeah, because you were in charge of the make-up and hair.

1:02:421:02:44

But you had very specific things that you...

1:02:441:02:47

Yeah, I gave them the picture, and when I came in,

1:02:471:02:49

her hair looked exactly the same way it looked when she...

1:02:491:02:52

the way she normally wears it.

1:02:521:02:54

But you said that you wanted it

1:02:541:02:55

to be loose and curls for the beginning.

1:02:551:02:58

Not parted in the middle.

1:02:581:03:00

-But she did...

-It wasn't like the picture.

1:03:001:03:02

It wasn't like the picture at all.

1:03:021:03:05

So, Trace, what did you think of Emily?

1:03:071:03:09

Um, aside from the underwear,

1:03:091:03:11

which I will attest,

1:03:111:03:13

as an entertainer, you go on stage with the wrong underwear on,

1:03:131:03:15

and it's just going to mess the whole thing up.

1:03:151:03:18

Trace, you got to stop wearing those granny panties, right?

1:03:181:03:20

Yeah. See, you got be very careful about that.

1:03:201:03:21

Bridget Jones' knickers.

1:03:211:03:24

But Emily sang the way Emily always sings. She can wail.

1:03:241:03:28

Cyndi, who was your strongest player?

1:03:281:03:30

I thought all of them, except for this one.

1:03:361:03:38

Yeah, but you always tell me that. Except who?

1:03:381:03:40

No, no. Maria. Maria started to get on my nerves.

1:03:401:03:43

If I was in...

1:03:431:03:45

You don't like Maria much, actually.

1:03:451:03:47

I like her, but I think sometimes she speaks just to speak.

1:03:471:03:52

That's how I feel.

1:03:521:03:53

So, if I were going to fire someone if your team loses,

1:03:531:03:56

I would fire Maria, according to you.

1:03:561:03:57

I would.

1:03:571:03:59

OK

1:04:011:04:02

How do you respond to that, Maria?

1:04:021:04:04

She doesn't know what I've done, she doesn't know where I've been,

1:04:061:04:10

and, basically, she treated me like a child,

1:04:101:04:12

so I got defensive.

1:04:121:04:14

Are you disappointed with Cyndi, to a certain extent?

1:04:141:04:18

I'm very disappointed, because I had this...

1:04:181:04:21

this vision of my childhood idol that is being ruined,

1:04:211:04:26

and I'm just separating the two right now.

1:04:261:04:28

I'm just... Cyndi Lauper then and being this amazing singer

1:04:281:04:33

and this, you know, vision I had dancing around in my room

1:04:331:04:35

to Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,

1:04:351:04:37

to now, where it's kind of like Girls Just Wanna Be Mean.

1:04:371:04:40

-So it did put me on edge.

-Do you think she's mean?

1:04:401:04:42

She was mean.

1:04:441:04:46

You know what? I'll send you a picture.

1:04:461:04:48

You can draw a dartboard and throw it.

1:04:481:04:50

And I understand you've done a lot.

1:04:501:04:51

Holly, you winced. What are you wincing about?

1:04:511:04:54

Oh, the only thing is, I do understand where Maria's coming from,

1:04:541:04:57

and there were moments where I felt Cyndi shut me down,

1:04:571:04:59

but, you know, in the end, she's the Project Manager,

1:04:591:05:01

and the reason why I winced is because when Maria said

1:05:011:05:03

that her childhood hero

1:05:031:05:05

was sort of, you know, being shattered or whatever...

1:05:051:05:08

It was a pretty tough statement. Sharon, you did the same thing.

1:05:081:05:10

You went, like, "Wow." That was a tough statement, right?

1:05:101:05:12

Yeah. But people always say that, Sharon.

1:05:121:05:14

But I... No, no.

1:05:141:05:16

I just don't think that... She's not come here as a fan.

1:05:161:05:20

-No.

-So, nobody's illusion is, you know, is shattered.

1:05:201:05:24

But, Maria, you're disappointed by what's taken place.

1:05:241:05:26

Yeah, of course I am.

1:05:261:05:27

Sharon, now, you have been, as I understand it,

1:05:311:05:33

a great manager of talent over the years, right?

1:05:331:05:35

Greatest.

1:05:351:05:36

Did Cyndi ever ask you, "How do we manage this talent?"

1:05:361:05:39

She asked me what I felt about the photo shoot.

1:05:391:05:42

She asked me what I felt about the portrait shots.

1:05:421:05:45

-So, she respected your opinion?

-Absolutely.

1:05:451:05:47

-OK. And you have no complaints about that?

-No.

1:05:471:05:49

She's one of the greatest managers ever.

1:05:491:05:51

-I agree.

-She's a brilliant...

1:05:511:05:53

-Just ask her husband.

-Yeah.

1:05:531:05:55

As great as he is, without her, probably Ozzy's not Ozzy, right?

1:05:551:05:59

So, don't answer that, Sharon. I'll tell you that.

1:05:591:06:01

Goldberg, I'm just thinking, she is one of the greatest

1:06:011:06:03

show-business managers of all time.

1:06:031:06:06

Do you think you people had a disadvantage?

1:06:061:06:08

You know, there is no question

1:06:091:06:12

one of the best creative minds in music in Sharon.

1:06:121:06:16

There's also one of the most creative people in music,

1:06:161:06:19

which is Cyndi over there,

1:06:191:06:21

but I think we have a great combination of that

1:06:211:06:24

in my boy here.

1:06:241:06:25

-Thanks.

-I...

1:06:251:06:27

Did Bret do a good job?

1:06:271:06:29

I think Bret did a great job, and everybody knows

1:06:291:06:31

that Bret is experiencing

1:06:311:06:33

a little bit of difficulty with his daughter.

1:06:331:06:36

How is that going?

1:06:361:06:38

Uh, I didn't get the answer I wanted to hear,

1:06:381:06:40

but it's...it went better than I was...

1:06:401:06:42

-But she's going to be fine.

-She'll be fine. She'll be fine.

1:06:421:06:44

Go ahead, Goldberg.

1:06:441:06:45

As moronic as it was for me to

1:06:451:06:48

take over task management on this one,

1:06:481:06:51

um, I delegated most of the responsibilities -

1:06:511:06:54

I would say 95% of it - to Bret,

1:06:541:06:57

because that's what he does.

1:06:571:06:58

But if you're Project Manager - and I agree with delegation,

1:06:581:07:01

I think delegation's a great thing,

1:07:011:07:03

especially when you have somebody with expertise, as Bret does,

1:07:031:07:06

but when you say you delegated 95%,

1:07:061:07:08

that sounds like a lot.

1:07:081:07:09

Well, I might have been exaggerating a tiny bit.

1:07:091:07:12

-90%, right?

-Maybe 87%.

1:07:121:07:14

Bret, were you the boss?

1:07:141:07:17

No, no, not at all.

1:07:171:07:19

Were you the one that really ran things?

1:07:191:07:21

I was the assistant Project Manager.

1:07:211:07:23

Yeah, except they were your ideas.

1:07:231:07:25

Right.

1:07:251:07:26

I honestly was shocked when we gave you the task

1:07:261:07:30

and everybody just pointed at Goldberg,

1:07:301:07:33

because, I mean, the logical choice was Bret.

1:07:331:07:37

I mean, I don't understand why, Bret,

1:07:371:07:39

you didn't just step up and go, "This is mine."

1:07:391:07:42

This is why we did it - his charity deserves a chance,

1:07:421:07:44

as all of ours does, and that's why we did it,

1:07:441:07:46

and I knew I'd have his back.

1:07:461:07:48

Bret, let me ask you this. You wear the bandana.

1:07:481:07:50

I don't even know what's under that bandana.

1:07:501:07:52

But...why didn't you have Luke wear a bandana?

1:07:521:07:57

It's sort of cool. You know, I mean, if I were in your business,

1:07:571:07:59

I think I'd wear a bandana, too. I'd probably do it like that.

1:07:591:08:01

Right. I'd wear a bandana. I think it's cool.

1:08:011:08:04

It's like Trace wears the hat.

1:08:041:08:05

I think there's something cool about that, right?

1:08:051:08:06

But he always wears a hat.

1:08:061:08:08

Would Luke have been good with a bandana?

1:08:081:08:11

Um, I do... Luke would not have been good with a bandana.

1:08:111:08:14

I know a little bit about Luke, and I asked him immediately,

1:08:141:08:17

"Where are you at in your life? Where are you going?

1:08:171:08:20

"What do you want to be perceived as?," Right?

1:08:201:08:22

Because the first thing you got to do with any real artist

1:08:221:08:24

is you got to find out where their heart is.

1:08:241:08:26

I can... I can tell him to do anything. I could...

1:08:261:08:28

You know, I could've told him, "Wear this. Do that,"

1:08:281:08:31

and if he feels uncomfortable when he goes on that stage,

1:08:311:08:33

he is going to be awful. We know that.

1:08:331:08:35

OK. Give them each other's little promo kit, if you would.

1:08:371:08:41

I'd like to hear what you think.

1:08:411:08:43

It's very good.

1:08:541:08:55

It's beautiful, ladies.

1:09:031:09:05

And they put a picture on the inside.

1:09:061:09:08

They did a much better job.

1:09:091:09:12

Much better job.

1:09:121:09:13

I think bandanas are cool.

1:09:131:09:15

I think if I were in that business, I'd wear a bandana.

1:09:151:09:18

Lucky for me, you're not in this business.

1:09:181:09:20

What do you think of their work?

1:09:221:09:24

I think it's beautiful. I think it's beautiful.

1:09:241:09:26

-Is she beautiful?

-Oh, no question about it.

1:09:261:09:29

Let me just see it. I haven't even seen it.

1:09:291:09:31

She's got beautiful eyes, like, her face.

1:09:311:09:33

-I think she's awesome.

-She's amazing.

1:09:331:09:35

-I really do.

-You think Emily's amazing.

1:09:351:09:36

Then I think you did a really bad job with this picture.

1:09:361:09:38

No, no, that's not airbrushed at all.

1:09:381:09:40

-That's not touched up. Not touched up at all.

-I hope not.

1:09:401:09:42

Trace, do you like Emily, or do you like Luke's work,

1:09:421:09:45

in terms of the brochures?

1:09:451:09:47

What do you like better?

1:09:471:09:49

Well, I... I think the one they did for Emily

1:09:491:09:52

-is a little more polished.

-You're obviously not a skin man.

1:09:521:09:55

I didn't look that close.

1:09:571:09:58

You know, there are some men that don't care about skin.

1:09:581:10:00

I didn't look at it with a magnifying glass like you did.

1:10:001:10:02

No, but you would touch this up.

1:10:021:10:04

-Well, it's a little late, right?

-You can't...in one hour?

1:10:041:10:06

Wouldn't you touch it up before you show it to me?

1:10:061:10:08

You know, I've learned, Trace is not a skin man, which is OK.

1:10:081:10:10

-There you go. All right.

-I wish I wasn't.

1:10:101:10:13

And, Maria, please have your mole removed

1:10:131:10:15

off your frickin' chin.

1:10:151:10:16

OK. All right.

1:10:161:10:17

All right, let me see the other one.

1:10:201:10:21

So, Luke is, uh... He's a nice-looking guy.

1:10:251:10:29

Guys aren't my thing.

1:10:291:10:30

-Well, join the club, except for Bret.

-Oh.

1:10:301:10:33

See, I happen to think he'd look better in a bandana.

1:10:351:10:38

Enough with the bandana thing.

1:10:381:10:40

No, but...but, seriously,

1:10:401:10:42

I think this guy would look great in a bandana.

1:10:421:10:44

Trace, what did you think?

1:10:481:10:49

So, I was just curious, Rocksolid,

1:10:491:10:52

how far would Luke actually let you go?

1:10:521:10:57

Luke didn't want to go very far.

1:10:571:10:59

He... I mean, just getting him to open up to use,

1:10:591:11:01

like, the necklace, I mean, I found it was, like...

1:11:011:11:03

Isn't that disrespectful to you, though? You guys are professionals.

1:11:031:11:05

I got to be honest with you. He was really trying.

1:11:051:11:07

For him to give that little bit...

1:11:071:11:09

He did get him to do something. I mean, I'm familiar with Luke,

1:11:091:11:12

and when I saw him on stage without a ball cap on...

1:11:121:11:15

He never goes on stage without wearing a baseball cap.

1:11:151:11:18

A baseball cap isn't the same thing, though, right? Is it?

1:11:181:11:22

It's different when you don't have one on.

1:11:221:11:24

One problem that we had

1:11:241:11:25

was that Luke is an established singer.

1:11:251:11:28

He's been around for a while,

1:11:281:11:29

and we thought we were getting a clay mould

1:11:291:11:32

that we could give advice to and go in that direction.

1:11:321:11:35

-And he would not take your advice?

-No. He took some of our advice.

1:11:351:11:38

Don't you think you could have forced him?

1:11:381:11:39

-He never wanted to smile.

-Yeah, but, Goldberg,

1:11:391:11:40

couldn't you have forced him to take your advice?

1:11:401:11:43

He never in a million years would've walked in

1:11:431:11:45

with anything resembling this clothing,

1:11:451:11:47

in a million years.

1:11:471:11:48

We did push him, Mr Trump.

1:11:481:11:50

We pushed him. And you know what?

1:11:501:11:51

He did...

1:11:511:11:53

So, do you resent the fact that he wouldn't listen to you?

1:11:531:11:54

Absolutely not, because if I would have made him listen to me,

1:11:541:11:57

it would have made him very uncomfortable in his performance.

1:11:571:12:00

Sharon, does Luke have star potential?

1:12:011:12:03

I don't know, cos I... I swear to you,

1:12:031:12:06

I haven't heard him sing.

1:12:061:12:07

OK. Could you make him a star?

1:12:071:12:09

You'd have to have somebody that's willing to change.

1:12:091:12:12

But do you think he has the charisma,

1:12:121:12:14

or do you think you could give him the charis...

1:12:141:12:16

Charisma's very hard to give. It's very hard.

1:12:161:12:18

People either have it, or they don't.

1:12:181:12:19

You've either got it, or you don't.

1:12:191:12:20

And you either are... You're special,

1:12:201:12:22

or you're not special.

1:12:221:12:23

It's a tough game.

1:12:231:12:25

It's a really tough game.

1:12:251:12:27

Do I have star potential?

1:12:271:12:29

-Abso...

-BLEEP

-..lutely.

1:12:291:12:30

-You better

-BLEEP

-believe it.

1:12:301:12:31

So, Sharon, what do you think of their work?

1:12:331:12:36

Cos I think it's very good.

1:12:361:12:38

I think it's a great package. Very good.

1:12:381:12:39

-Do you think it's better than yours?

-Yes. Yeah.

1:12:391:12:41

-I do.

-It's more informative.

1:12:411:12:43

I do, but it's not up to me. It's up to the executives.

1:12:431:12:48

And the fact is, the music-industry insiders

1:12:481:12:53

really preferred the men's promo kit better.

1:12:531:12:55

However, that's not the only criteria.

1:12:581:13:01

OK?

1:13:011:13:03

Don, do you have anything else to say?

1:13:031:13:05

Well, for the women,

1:13:051:13:07

the industry insiders thought Emily came across more polished

1:13:071:13:11

than she had been before.

1:13:111:13:12

The makeover was transforming, and it allowed her

1:13:121:13:14

to really shine in her interview with People magazine.

1:13:141:13:17

So, on the criteria of overall makeover, the women did better.

1:13:171:13:21

But again, that's just a small portion of it.

1:13:211:13:25

It all comes down to who gave their artist

1:13:251:13:28

a better shot at breaking out.

1:13:281:13:30

Trace, who did the music insiders think

1:13:301:13:34

and tell you is the winning team?

1:13:341:13:37

Well, I talked to all three -

1:13:391:13:42

the disc jockey, the journalist from People,

1:13:421:13:44

and Pete Fisher,

1:13:441:13:46

the general manager of the Grand Ole Opry,

1:13:461:13:48

and they were all unanimous.

1:13:481:13:49

And they thought that the ladies won.

1:13:531:13:55

Thank you, and thank you, True Colours.

1:13:551:13:56

Thank you, True Colours.

1:13:561:13:58

Cyndi, what is your charity?

1:13:581:14:00

The Stonewall Community Foundation

1:14:001:14:03

in support of the True Colours Fund

1:14:031:14:05

to promote awareness about the civil rights

1:14:051:14:08

that the lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual people

1:14:081:14:13

-do not have in this country.

-Well, as winning Project Manager,

1:14:131:14:16

you're going to get 20,000.

1:14:161:14:18

Thank you. Thank you.

1:14:181:14:20

In addition to that, Emily West and Luke Bryan

1:14:201:14:23

will donate all proceeds

1:14:231:14:25

from the next month of sales at iTunes

1:14:251:14:27

of their singles Blue Sky and Rain To your charity.

1:14:271:14:31

-So, that could be a lot of money.

-Wow.

1:14:311:14:33

So, I congratulate you very much.

1:14:331:14:35

-It could be quite a bit.

-Thank you.

1:14:351:14:37

All right, Cyndi. Get out of here.

1:14:391:14:41

All right. I'm out of here.

1:14:411:14:42

All right, men. Unfortunately, somebody will be fired.

1:14:491:14:52

Thank you all, and I know you think

1:15:061:15:08

I'm a big fat pain in the ass and that I was...

1:15:081:15:09

I am, too.

1:15:091:15:11

Yeah, you are, but I love you.

1:15:111:15:12

I know you have... You mean well,

1:15:121:15:14

and I'm sorry that your dream of me was tarnished,

1:15:141:15:18

but there is one thing I can always tell you.

1:15:181:15:20

Never meet the person you really admire all your life...

1:15:201:15:24

I should have called first.

1:15:241:15:26

cos you're always going to be disappointed.

1:15:261:15:28

Can we put the TV on?

1:15:291:15:30

-Here we go, guys.

-I feel bad for these guys.

1:15:311:15:35

Goldberg, do you regret the fact

1:15:351:15:38

that you sort of volunteered to be Project Manager?

1:15:381:15:41

You know, I'll be perfectly honest with you.

1:15:411:15:43

I thought it was time for me to step up.

1:15:431:15:44

I was the only team member who hadn't been Project Manager,

1:15:441:15:47

and I knew that I could delegate most of the responsibilities

1:15:471:15:51

to the man who knows the business.

1:15:511:15:54

Do you think you did a good job as Project Manager?

1:15:541:15:57

You know, um...

1:15:581:16:00

Obviously, I didn't do a good enough job to win.

1:16:001:16:03

Bret, if you were me, who would you fire?

1:16:041:16:07

I don't want to go home, but I'll tell you what...

1:16:091:16:11

I took the responsibility.

1:16:111:16:13

And I... These guys worked their butts off,

1:16:131:16:16

but I was responsible.

1:16:161:16:18

I thought we won. I thought, hands down, we won.

1:16:181:16:20

Curtis, who do you think should be fired?

1:16:201:16:23

That's a really line ball, Mr Trump.

1:16:291:16:31

Go ahead, tell me. Who would you fire?

1:16:311:16:33

Just say it.

1:16:331:16:35

I'd fire Bret.

1:16:351:16:36

Why?

1:16:371:16:38

Because I think he did take on the responsibility.

1:16:401:16:43

And I don't want to say that. I don't think you did a bad job.

1:16:431:16:45

-No, say it.

-I think you did as good as you could.

1:16:451:16:47

Yeah, but he wasn't the Project Manager,

1:16:481:16:50

and it wasn't really his job.

1:16:501:16:51

It was being delegated to him,

1:16:511:16:53

and everybody tells me he did a really good job,

1:16:531:16:56

and, therefore, Goldberg could also get credit,

1:16:561:16:58

maybe for delegating.

1:16:581:17:00

Curtis, what did you contribute?

1:17:001:17:02

I tried to keep us on schedule,

1:17:021:17:04

and that's always tough with our team.

1:17:041:17:06

We're only three people, so, obviously, we're undermanned.

1:17:061:17:09

And I do find it a little bit tough with Bret sometimes

1:17:091:17:12

to keep him focused, in terms of when our deadlines are.

1:17:121:17:16

And I think you've done a much better job, Bret.

1:17:161:17:20

I honestly do, and I hope

1:17:201:17:21

you don't take this the wrong way, mate,

1:17:211:17:23

because I really think you worked as hard as you possibly could,

1:17:231:17:26

but there's difficulty.

1:17:261:17:27

He's very creative, and he tends to go on,

1:17:271:17:29

and, you know, he'll be asking a question,

1:17:291:17:31

then he'll start telling a story,

1:17:311:17:32

and by the time he's asked the question,

1:17:321:17:34

you know, we've wasted a bit of time,

1:17:341:17:35

which you can't afford to do when you've only got three players.

1:17:351:17:37

Oh, boy. Here we go.

1:17:371:17:39

Well...

1:17:391:17:40

It's a creative thing.

1:17:401:17:41

It is.

1:17:411:17:43

It is totally a creative thing.

1:17:431:17:44

Hard game for creative people.

1:17:441:17:46

But Bret did a good job.

1:17:461:17:48

Bill, you've been a pretty tough leader throughout a lot of this,

1:17:491:17:52

even though you haven't been the PM Yet.

1:17:521:17:54

Now, do you think it was a tactical error, perhaps,

1:17:541:17:56

on your part, not stepping up earlier

1:17:561:17:58

to be the Project Manager,

1:17:581:18:00

where you could have given something like this to Bret?

1:18:001:18:02

Um...maybe.

1:18:061:18:08

Maybe just kind of free-riding for a little bit, little bit,

1:18:081:18:10

and then broke your stride

1:18:101:18:12

in a task that wasn't good for you to be PM?

1:18:121:18:13

I don't free-ride in anything, man.

1:18:131:18:15

You know me better than that.

1:18:151:18:16

I don't free-ride, OK?

1:18:161:18:18

That's not my job. That's not what I do, OK?

1:18:181:18:22

The fact is that I stepped up

1:18:221:18:24

because I was under the assumption...

1:18:241:18:25

Well, you know, you're saying that to Don,

1:18:251:18:27

but in all fairness, you appointed somebody

1:18:271:18:30

and you said he did 95% of the work and the thinking.

1:18:301:18:33

So, wouldn't you say that's a free ride?

1:18:331:18:35

I was... I was mistaken

1:18:351:18:38

as to the percentage of delegation.

1:18:381:18:40

But you're saying you don't free-ride,

1:18:401:18:41

and yet you appointed him, and you said before...

1:18:411:18:43

I think I'm correct - I have a great memory.

1:18:431:18:46

You said 95% of the work was done by Bret.

1:18:461:18:49

I was wrong.

1:18:501:18:51

It wasn't 95% of the work.

1:18:511:18:53

Well, what was it? It had to be a lot.

1:18:531:18:54

Then you said it was 87 after that.

1:18:541:18:56

He did probably 70% of the work, OK?

1:18:561:19:00

Now, the reality is, he has the vision...

1:19:001:19:02

Well, that's a lot. Wouldn't you say that's a lot?

1:19:021:19:05

You're Project Manager. I mean, that's a lot.

1:19:051:19:07

You know, Mr Trump,

1:19:071:19:08

I've been hit in the head a lot of times,

1:19:081:19:10

so maybe my math is off, OK?

1:19:101:19:13

But as far as the three of us are concerned,

1:19:131:19:16

this was Bret's area of expertise.

1:19:161:19:20

Would you rather have me fire Bret

1:19:201:19:22

because he did a lot of work, even though it was good work

1:19:221:19:25

and we all admit that and we all agree with that,

1:19:251:19:27

or yourself because you're Project Manager?

1:19:271:19:31

That's your decision.

1:19:311:19:32

It is my decision, and I'm going to make the decision,

1:19:321:19:35

but do you think I should fire you, as Project Manager,

1:19:351:19:39

or Bret?

1:19:391:19:40

And I'm going to leave the other guy out

1:19:401:19:43

because, to be honest with you,

1:19:431:19:44

I don't think he comes into play right now.

1:19:441:19:46

What would you say?

1:19:461:19:47

You were Project Manager. You appointed somebody.

1:19:471:19:50

You said he did 95%, 75%, 80%, all different numbers.

1:19:501:19:54

But it doesn't matter. He did a lot of the work.

1:19:541:19:56

Would you say that that person should be fired,

1:19:571:19:59

if you were me,

1:19:591:20:01

or should the Project Manager, you, be fired?

1:20:011:20:03

Depends on your opinion.

1:20:041:20:06

Well, what's your opinion?

1:20:061:20:08

I think I was wrong stepping up in the first place.

1:20:101:20:13

-Which is a reason to be fired.

-But I...

1:20:131:20:14

Maybe it is.

1:20:151:20:17

I think, frankly, Bret should have been Project Manager.

1:20:171:20:19

I was unfortunately misinformed by my own stupidity

1:20:211:20:26

in that I figured that,

1:20:261:20:28

since I hadn't been Project Manager,

1:20:281:20:30

I had to step up. And as a man, I stepped up.

1:20:301:20:34

But I think you were wrong in that decision, also.

1:20:341:20:36

But like I said, that's what I thought was supposed to happen.

1:20:361:20:39

I know, as a man, but, you know,

1:20:391:20:40

this isn't about being a man or being anything.

1:20:401:20:41

This is about making the right business decision.

1:20:411:20:43

Then I made the wrong decision.

1:20:431:20:44

You did make the wrong decision.

1:20:441:20:46

All right. Goldberg, you're fired.

1:20:461:20:48

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

1:20:531:20:54

I'll see you later. I appreciate the opportunity.

1:20:541:20:56

Thank you very much.

1:20:561:20:57

Bill, I feel sick in my stomach.

1:20:571:20:59

Just get out of here, Bret. You won. Don't feel sick.

1:20:591:21:01

You should feel good. You shouldn't feel sick.

1:21:031:21:06

I feel... I feel great. I just lost my friend, though.

1:21:061:21:08

Love you, guys. Love you, Bill.

1:21:151:21:16

It was a pleasure, really.

1:21:161:21:18

And you know what? Kick some ass, will you?

1:21:181:21:19

You know we will. You know we will.

1:21:191:21:21

All right. Appreciate it.

1:21:211:21:22

I'll see you later, man. Go home and see your son.

1:21:221:21:24

I think we made the right decision.

1:21:361:21:37

What do you think, Trace?

1:21:371:21:38

I don't think so.

1:21:381:21:40

You would have fired...

1:21:411:21:42

-Bret.

-Really?

1:21:421:21:43

-What do you think, Don?

-Yeah, I'm with you.

1:21:431:21:45

I think the Project Manager

1:21:451:21:46

still has to make the final decisions.

1:21:461:21:47

Even if he's taking advice

1:21:471:21:48

from someone who knows what they're doing,

1:21:481:21:50

he's got to make the call.

1:21:501:21:51

He didn't make the right call.

1:21:511:21:52

I point-blank asked the industry insiders

1:21:521:21:55

who they thought the Project Manager was,

1:21:551:21:57

and they all said Bret.

1:21:571:21:58

-Well, yeah, but isn't that the PM's mistake?

-I know.

1:21:581:22:00

If he didn't step up enough...

1:22:001:22:02

Well, you know, one of the reasons I did that

1:22:021:22:04

is because he should not have been the Project Manager.

1:22:041:22:06

He should not. The mistake was made yesterday morning.

1:22:061:22:08

He wanted to be Project Manager.

1:22:081:22:09

He shouldn't have chosen this task.

1:22:091:22:11

-He should not have.

-And that's the primary reason I fired him.

1:22:111:22:14

Being on that side of the table...

1:22:141:22:15

-Does that make you feel better?

-Yes.

1:22:151:22:16

Good. Now I feel better.

1:22:161:22:18

Good.

1:22:181:22:19

Obviously, if you're as competitive a person as I am,

1:22:511:22:54

you want to win everything, but at the end of the day,

1:22:541:22:57

I think Donald makes his own decisions

1:22:571:22:59

based upon what he believes is right.

1:22:591:23:02

I take full responsibility for my team losing

1:23:021:23:04

because I was the Project Manager, no question.

1:23:041:23:07

If I didn't take full responsibility for my team losing,

1:23:071:23:09

-then I wouldn't be in the

-BLEEP

-car.
