It was tense over at the home base of Net Worth as the group raced against the clock to get their clothing, models and themselves over to the American Eagle store in time for their presentation. Angie made calls to find the group's missing models as Alex ran through the building looking for them. Finally, Alex found the models and it was a frantic scene as they changed clothes and everyone flew out the door. But in their rush, they had forgotten one thing: a jean jacket the team had created. In the harried cab ride to the location, Angie learned that it was three o'clock. The problem was, the team's time to present was also three. Angie felt the stress and declared, "I'm going to throw up."
Tana opened the presentation for Magna. She introduced the line and said that the team had done a lot of research. Bren jumped in and showed off specific clothing items on the models that included a sweatshirt with a GameBoy pouch in front and a jacket with a pocket specially designed for gadgets, like MP3 players. When an American Eagle executive asked what the most important piece of technology was for their customers, without hesitation Bren said the cell phone - and judging by the execs' faces, it seemed to be the answer they were after.
Net Worth finally arrived. But as they rushed in, they realized that they'd forgotten one of their pieces - their jean jacket. Angie said it was at that point that the blood rushed out of her head. The only problem for Angie was that she then had a presentation to do. Angie got in front of the executives, took a deep breath and began. Unfortunately, she stumbled during her opening… several times. In an interview, Alex pulled no punches, calling Angie's performance "terrible" and likening it to "a high school communications class." When one of the executives asked what the most important piece of technology was for their customers, Angie said she thought it was the iPod, which didn't seem to impress the execs.
Finally, The Donald arrived and the two American Eagle execs rendered their verdict. The executives told Net Worth that their presentation seemed scattered and unprepared. Also, their clothing wasn't as creative as it could have been. On the other hand, the execs liked that Magna did research and got into the head of the customer, which paid off in their clothing line. The two American Eagle execs said that the clear winner was Magna! For their reward, the team would get a shopping spree at the high-end retailer Bergdorf Goodman to buy some clothes of their own. Trump reminded Net Worth they would be taking a different kind of trip - to the boardroom, where another candidate would be fired.
The Bergdorf Goodman experience began for the members of Magna as soon as they walked in the store, where they met their personal shoppers. Craig was so impressed he said the store was like a "fashion museum." Kendra, arms full of clothing, called the reward "a dream come true."
In the suite, Net Worth commiserated. The candidates said that while they may have lost, they had worked together as a team. But in their interviews, they were a bit more honest. Alex said it wasn't his fault that Angie had frozen up in her presentation. Angie said that she would not get fired - the Project Manager, Alex, couldn't get the team to the presentation on time and Chris lost the team's credit card overnight.
The next day, Chris, Alex and Angie entered the boardroom and under questioning, Angie admitted that her presentation was her "worst" showing so far. But she painted a picture of a hectic and disorganized situation as the cause. Angie said she was thrown during the presentation because they had to change the order of their fashions since they had left a jacket behind. Alex said that bringing the clothing was Angie's responsibility because she was in charge of the presentation. Angie shot back that she was in charge of almost everything. However, Trump got Angie to eventually admit that leaving the jacket behind was her fault. Carolyn turned her attention to Chris and asked what he had done. Chris admitted that he had left the team's credit card at Best Buy and that it was lost for a while. Angie blamed Chris for the loss and Chris was incredulous. He said that the team lost because of the presentation, which was Angie's responsibility. Trump then called Angie and Chris "losers" - they had each been to the boardroom six weeks in a row. And then he said that Alex, whom he had called a "star," was now a loser too, dragged down by his new teammates. Trump then sent the three candidates back into the waiting area to stew.
Carolyn said that Chris didn't do much and had only excuses. Michelle said that Angie's presentation was a disaster. After Chris, Alex and Angie returned to the boardroom, Alex was clear - the team lost because of the presentation, which he said was ultimately Angie's responsibility. Angie admitted she had turned in her worst performance to date, but labeled the entire team effort a "fiasco" and said that Alex couldn't even get his team to the presentation on time. Alex countered by saying that Angie simply cracked under the pressure. Carolyn asked Alex what his responsibilities were. He said to oversee everything, to which Carolyn said, "But everything was pretty much a failure." Trump told Chris he had been a disaster. He told Alex that he had been brought down by his two teammates. As for Angie, Trump said that he was bothered by one fact - that she had choked during the presentation. Trump said he didn't want someone who chokes under pressure in his organization, and so he said, "Angie, you're fired."
