Finally, John, Stephanie and Erin met with Gene Simmons. But when John tried to open with a story, Gene shut him down. Instead, Simmons wanted to listen to the ladies. Simmons told the group that he would soon be releasing a special CD box set. John threw out the idea of going to dinner and the CD release party with Simmons as the experience for the auction. Simmons asked if that would be enough - he said he wanted his personal experience to garner the highest bid of all. But instead of asking for a more extravagant experience, John told Simmons that anything he offered would get a high bid.
On the new Magna, Kendra, Tana and Craig went to meet with their artists, who were Lil Kim, Lil Jon, Moby, Eve and Jadakiss. Kendra left Alex and Bren to work on the production of the auction. Kendra, Tana and Craig met first with artist Lil Jon. While Tana may have looked a bit out of place with Lil Jon and his crew, she jumped right into the hip-hop world, using lingo she might not have ever used before ("We be talkin'," for example) Tana even asked to hold Lil Jon's special, diamond encrusted signature cup, which generated the idea of auctioning off the experience of being Lil Jon's cupbearer for a day. Craig quickly added that the person could also have a cameo appearance in the artist's next music video. Lil Jon thought it was a lot to ask for - but he agreed to put the experience up on the auction block. Kendra thought Tana and Craig did such a good job that she let the two negotiate the rest of the personal experiences without her. When Craig and Tana met with Eve, they asked for an experience that would involve a small part on Eve's TV show as well as lunch with her. Eve liked the idea and another experience was set. Next, Tana and Craig convinced Jadakiss to let the highest bidder travel around the world with him on tour. With Lil Kim, the duo got her to agree to having the highest bidder spend a week with the artist -- and Tana promised that somebody would really "diggity that." Finally, Tana and Craig got Moby to agree to take someone on tour for a week. The winning bidder would travel first class and even appear onstage and play a set with Moby.
With the personal experiences set, it was time for the live auction segments to air! For Magna, Tana and Craig co-hosted their eleven minute segment. Tana threw around more vocabulary that she might not use every day, like "in the hizzy" and "booya." Trump, who watched the segment from his office, thought Tana did a good job. Kendra nervously watched the live bidding results and wondered if it would be enough to win. For Net Worth, Chris and Erin co-hosted their live segment. Two of their musical artists made guest appearances: Tyler Stewart from Barenaked Ladies and Gene Simmons, who put a wet finger into Erin's ear. Trump arrived at the TV studio and met with the teams to hear the results of their bids. George announced that Net Worth had brought in a total of $11,325. But Carolyn said that Magna's total was $21,654, which was attributed largely to the week-long experiences the team managed to secure. Trump said that for this task, everyone had received the reward of helping raise a lot of money for a worthy cause. But then Trump added that Net Worth would meet him back in the boardroom where someone would be fired.
Up in the suite, the members of Net Worth talked about who might be the one to go. In an interview, John predicted it would be either Chris or him. But John added that he had come up with all of the personal experience ideas and Chris had contributed nothing. Angie said Chris considered John such a good buddy that she worried he might sacrifice himself for John. But Chris said that he and John had an understanding - if they had to, they would go after each other in the boardroom.
After the teams sat down across from Trump, Carolyn and George at the boardroom table, Angie said that Chris did a good job as a leader. Trump said he was surprised that Chris was so cool on TV. Trump was even more impressed with Erin's performance on the small screen. When asked why his team lost, John said that the other team was lucky. But Carolyn disagreed, saying that Magna secured two week-long experiences with artists and Net Worth only auctioned off single night events. George asked Chris why he wasn't involved in the negotiations with the artists. Chris said he was needed on the production end of things. He said that you had to have a successful TV segment or there would be no bids. And, Chris added, he trusted John to handle the negotiations. George told John that he hadn't asked for big enough personal experiences. George complained that John started too small by asking the artists to play for just 45 minutes at a party. George added that the team squandered a perfect opportunity with Gene Simmons, who said he wanted to offer a personal experience that was better than all the others. Erin and Stephanie said that John didn't let them speak - even worse, they said, he talked about himself too much with the artists. Finally, Chris chose to bring John and Erin back in with him.
After the candidates left the room, Carolyn said John could have done better in the negotiations but that Chris could have done a better job managing his team. It bothered George that Chris delegated the negotiations. George felt Chris should have been there. When John, Chris and Erin returned to the boardroom, Erin said that John wasn't a good negotiator. George challenged Chris by asking him if he avoided the negotiations to stay out of the line of fire if his team lost. Chris forcefully stated that he was the best negotiator at the table. But then Carolyn asked why Chris didn't go out and negotiate. Chris repeated his belief that John could handle working with the artists and that he needed to oversee the critical production end of the task. Chris was so forceful that George told him not to raise his voice at him. Chris apologized and ratcheted it down. All three candidates did agree on one thing: Chris could not have done both the negotiating and the producing. Trump told Chris that he was very disappointed in certain things that he had done. But Trump turned to John and said that he really let Trump down by doing such a terrible job negotiating. "John," he said, "you're fired."
