"Honey, I'm home!" called Tana as she entered the suite after another brutal boardroom with The Donald. Craig and Kendra ran to greet her and realized that Alex had been fired. In an interview, Kendra worried that Tana and Craig were so close: "I feel like it's Tana and Craig against me." But Kendra also knew that the entire landscape of the competition was about to change.
The next day, the three candidates met Donald at the penthouse suite of Trump World Tower, with its incredible view of the city from 90 floors up. Trump said that if the candidates were really successful and got the job as The Apprentice, they might have a place like this someday. Trump told Kendra, Tana and Craig that they would be interviewing with four of the most respected professionals in the business world: David Brandon, Chairman & CEO, Domino's Pizza, Inc.; Darlene Daggett, President, U.S. Commerce, QVC, Inc.; Howard Lorber, Chairman, Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate and Greg Brenneman, Chairman & CEO, Burger King Corp. Trump said that based on recommendations from the executives, someone would be fired.
The Final Three spent all day in grueling interviews, facing each executive and answering tough questions, including: "Which of the other candidates would you choose to be your business partner and why?"; "Tell me about your leadership style. What's it like working for you? Would you enjoy working for you?"; "Who is on your enemy list?"; "Were you flying under the radar?" and "Why should Mr. Trump hire you for this job?"
Trump met with the business leaders to find out what they thought of his candidates. David Brandon said that Craig talked a lot but didn't offer much substance. He also thought that Kendra was a little too aggressive. If the choice were his, he would hire Tana. Darlene Daggett agreed with David and said that she would hire Tana as well. Darlene was impressed with Tana's entrepreneurial skills and the fact that she started her first business venture at the age of nine. Like David, Darlene said that Craig provided little substance. As for Kendra, Darlene found her answers good but said they felt "scripted." Howard Lorber disagreed with his two colleagues and said that Kendra could be a "superstar." He thought that while Tana was a nice person, he didn't think she could make it in a big city like New York. As for Craig, Howard wasn't a fan. Greg Brenneman seemed to echo what Howard had said. Greg felt that Kendra was aggressive and intelligent, but wondered if Tana could be an effective leader. Greg echoed the group's concern that Craig offered no substance in his interviews. Trump thanked the leaders for their input and they left the room.
The candidates, who were waiting in the lobby as the leaders discussed their fate, entered the boardroom. Trump told Craig that the leaders felt his answers weren't deep enough and lacked substance. They unanimously felt that Craig should be the one to go. So, Trump wasted no time and said, "Craig, you're fired." Craig left the boardroom and Trump Tower for the final time, wheeling his suitcase behind him. Then, Trump congratulated Tana and Kendra - they were the Final Two! Trump noted that he had started with nine Book Smart and nine Street Smart candidates and now was down to one of each. Donald sent the two women back up to the suite to enjoy the evening because the next day he promised that he would give them "the task of all tasks."
Back in the suite, Tana and Kendra screamed and hugged. The candidates were welcomed back by a bottle of champagne and a photo album that chronicled their long journey. Kendra said that she had met some crazy, colorful people whom she would hold dear to her heart. The two women toasted with champagne, but knew that they would soon be competing again.
