The next day at their Scoop location, Kendra let customers know that they were selling not just T-shirts, but limited edition collector's art with only 288 shirts in existence. The team certainly hoped to get Romero fans through their email campaign, but they were also ready to educate other customers about their artist. To that end, they had a large poster describing Romero and his unique work. Even though sales were going well, Craig and Kendra found another issue on which to clash. Craig was giving discounts for multiple shirts, but Kendra told Craig in no uncertain terms that they were not to offer discounts. Kendra said that the team could lose because Craig decided, on his own, to start giving price breaks.
At their Scoop location, Alex and Tana set up shop. For their effort marketing, Alex was on the street trying to stir up interest. Inside the store, Tana offered to add rhinestones for an additional charge. George said Net Worth was selling their T-shirts at basically twice the price at which Magna was selling theirs. He said that it was a classic battle between higher volume versus higher prices.
At the end of the day, the teams entered the boardroom wearing their T-shirt creations in lieu of business suits. Trump asked how each team had done. George said that Net Worth had sold their men's shirts for $42.99 and their women's shirts for $44.99. The team had sold 33 shirts for a total of $1,147.95 in sales. Carolyn said that Magna had approached the task differently. They had priced their short-sleeve shirts for $25 and long-sleeve shirts for $35. But they had tapped into their artist's fan base and sold 101 shirts for $2,705.00. Magna was the winner! Trump then announced that starting the following week, there would be no more teams. The Final Three would compete as individuals. However, Trump said, Kendra and Craig would start their individual competition a bit early because, for their reward, they would get into fighter planes and go head-to-head in an aerial dogfight! As the losers, Alex and Tana would fight it out in the boardroom where one of them would be fired.
Craig and Kendra put on flight suits at Air Combat USA, a company that allows anyone to take the stick of a state-of-the-art military trainer aircraft. With great confidence, Craig said he could take Kendra in the dogfight without a problem. Each candidate - along with an instructor - climbed into a fighter and took off. Once airborne, Kendra and Craig took the controls. But it was Kendra who out-maneuvered Craig, getting him in her sites as she squeezed the trigger for a direct hit! But that would only be the beginning, according to Kendra. She promised that over the next two weeks she would defeat two more opponents in "dogfights" and become The Apprentice.
That night, Alex got advice from Kendra on how to handle himself in the boardroom while Tana and Craig discussed Tana's strategy for the big meeting. Later, Alex and Tana hugged, grabbed their suitcases and headed down to face Trump. After the two candidates sat across from George and Carolyn, Trump entered and took his seat. Tana told The Donald that Alex had done a decent but not great job. Alex said Tana was not a good Project Manager - and that she was terrible at delegating. Alex said the team lost because they sold T-shirts instead of art. George agreed that the team didn't exploit the fact that they had a collector's item for sale. Tana had to admit that neither person on the team thought to market to the art community. But Tana proudly said that they were able to get nearly $55 dollars a shirt with the rhinestones on them. But Carolyn said that the team lost their market and spent too much time on the rhinestones. Trump said it was simple, the team lost because they weren't as good at marketing as Magna. Tana tried to lay the blame for that on Alex, saying that he was in charge of marketing. But Alex countered by saying that no one was in charge of marketing - a statement Trump wholeheartedly agreed with. Then, Trump dismissed the candidates.
With just his advisors at his side, Trump asked for input. George said that Alex had fire and Tana didn't. Carolyn said that she couldn't see Tana working for Trump. Trump agreed, noting that he deals with "killers" and didn't think Tana could work with them effectively. After Trump called Tana and Alex back, Alex said that he tried to discuss marketing with Tana, but she never had the time. Then Alex said that the team wasted time by going to Staten Island for rhinestones. Trump couldn't believe that Tana was unable to find the stones she wanted in Manhattan, the fashion capital of the world. Trump said that the team spent so much time getting the stones, they didn't have time to sell. Trump told Tana he sees her as a woman who wants to put beads on shirts and that's not who he wants to hire. But Tana argued that while she is a nice person, she has started several successful businesses and has the drive to succeed. Then Tana added that her record was better than Alex's. Tana said she was Project Manager three times and had won twice - with one of her victories over Alex. Trump asked Alex how many times he had lost as Project Manager and Alex said that he had lost once and won once. But Trump corrected him and said that Alex had lost twice as Project Manager. Trump couldn't believe that Alex didn't remember that important fact. Trump turned to Tana and told her that she had performed terribly on this task, but Trump admitted that over past weeks Tana had done well. Trump then turned to Alex and said that Tana had come up with most of the ideas and did most of the selling while Alex seemed to sit back and hope the team would fail. So, Trump said, "Alex, you're fired."
