Back at Net Worth's mobile pizza parlor, things were getting hot. Chris was frustrated when Alex was talking with one of the team's models and not picking up the ringing phone. Chris yelled at Alex and Alex told Chris not to yell at him again. Chris was incredulous. "Are you serious?", he asked. Chris had had enough and told Alex twice, "Get the f*** out of my face." In an interview, Alex said that Chris had physically threatened him.
When Stephanie got back from Brooklyn and her subway delivery, Angie said that they should get the models they hired over to Union Square - but Stephanie admitted that she didn't know where the models were. After selling their last pizza, the team headed back to Trump Tower. On the way, Alex told Stephanie that Chris had threatened him. Stephanie said that the behavior was unprofessional and unacceptable.
Both teams arrived at the boardroom to learn the results of their hard work. Carolyn reported that Magna had taken in $653.12 thanks in large part to Kendra and Tana's marketing effort. George said that Net Worth's sales totaled only $523.90. Magna was the winner! Trump asked Stephanie who she thought the problem was. Stephanie didn't hesitate. "Chris," she said. As the winners, the members of Magna would move up from pizza to breakfast with Trump in his apartment the next morning. As for Net Worth, they would return to the boardroom where someone would be fired.
In the suite, Chris confronted Alex when he heard that Alex was saying that Chris had threatened him. Chris told Alex that he never threatened him - and to say so was being dishonest. But Alex told Chris that when Chris said, "Get the f*** out of my face", Alex took that to mean Chris was close to getting into a physical fight with him. Chris said that he was not threatening Alex and was not going to fight him. In an interview, Chris said he once thought of Alex as a friend, but now he knew that Alex was deceitful and couldn't be trusted.
When Magna arrived at Donald's apartment for breakfast, they were impressed by the décor. In an interview, Kendra said that the place was so full of gold that Trump must have been a rapper in a former life. Tana knew that the breakfast was more than a chance to eat. She said that it was an important opportunity to spend time with The Donald outside of the boardroom.
Back in the suite, Stephanie and Alex had a secret meeting filled with whispers. Stephanie told Alex they both knew who needed to go. But she said that if she brought Angie back in to face the firing with her, Angie wouldn't necessarily gun for Chris. So, Stephanie proposed that she bring Alex back in to face the firing and then they could both take Chris out. But Alex wasn't on board with the idea. He felt that if Stephanie brought Alex and Chris in, all three would be equally likely to be fired. Alex was honest with Stephanie and said that if she were looking for someone to go solely after Chris, Alex was not her man. Alex said it would be everyone for himself.
Net Worth entered the boardroom and sat opposite George, Carolyn and Trump. Stephanie said that Chris was difficult to manage and added that Chris threatened Alex. Chris thought that was ridiculous. But Alex said he felt he was physically threatened. Chris said he was not going to hit Alex. Chris said that Alex was the one who got in his face and said, "Don't you ever talk to me like that again." But Trump told Chris, "You're very rough around the edges." Then Trump turned to Stephanie and asked if she were tough enough to handle her team. Angie said that Stephanie was not tough enough to lead at this level. Then Angie said that the team lost because of poor marketing and placed the blame for that squarely on Stephanie's shoulders. Stephanie said that she had a solid marketing effort in place. She had hired models to help advertise the pizza and sent them to the NYU dormitories. Carolyn asked why Stephanie had sent all of the models to the dorms and none to Union Square, just blocks away. George jumped in and suggested the dorms were a bad idea anyway. "Nobody's there at lunchtime," he said. Chris chimed in and said that a model even asked why they weren't told to go to Union Square. Finally, Trump told Stephanie it was time to choose. He asked her who she would send up to the safety of the suite. Stephanie said, "Angie" - and Trump was surprised. As the candidates got up to leave, Trump warned Stephanie that she had better fight harder for herself than she just had. With just George and Carolyn at the table with him, Trump asked his trusted advisors for their input. George said he questioned why Angie was sent up to the safety of the suite. But Carolyn said the move made sense. The big conflict on the team was between Chris and Alex.
After Alex, Stephanie and Chris came back, Alex claimed that Chris had a short fuse, which made it difficult for Stephanie to manage him. Stephanie said that Chris yells, curses and has no business savvy. Stephanie again brought up the specter of Chris threatening to physically harm Alex and she told Donald that he doesn't want someone like that in his organization. Trump again asked if Chris threatened Alex. And again, it came down to perceptions. Alex said he felt Chris had threatened him. Chris said he had not. Alex said that Chris had potential but just wasn't there yet; his temper was too short. Then Trump turned back to Stephanie and questioned her ability to handle her team. Stephanie admitted that she was not used to such a volatile business environment. Trump warned that life was volatile and that he needed someone who could handle difficult situations. Alex then laid into a surprised Stephanie, catching her off guard. Alex said that Stephanie was the least qualified to be in the competition. And when Stephanie asked Alex if he'd rather work with Chris than her, Alex said yes. Trump also thought it was a big mistake for Stephanie to spend an hour or more delivering a few pizzas to Brooklyn when she should have been back with her team. But Trump returned to his central concern. He just felt that Stephanie wasn't a strong leader and so he finally said, "Stephanie, you're fired."
