The next day, Kendra and Tana returned to the boardroom where they met Carolyn and George. Trump made his grand entrance via a video conferencing screen. The Donald was on a business trip and gave instructions on the go. For the final task, Trump said Kendra would run the Best Buy Video Game World Championship. She would be in charge of coordinating and hosting the huge video game tournament at Webster Hall featuring the new EA Sports video game Fight Night Round 2. Tana, Trump continued, would run the NYC2012 Athlete Challenge - a VIP sports exhibition at the Chelsea Piers to promote New York City's bid to host the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. Trump said it was simple: the winner of the task would become The Apprentice. Then Trump told the two candidates that they would each get a few employees. Right on cue, six fired candidates walked in. Kendra, the only remaining Book Smarts candidate, got three people from the original Book Smarts team: Michael, Danny and Erin. Tana, the only remaining Street Smarts candidate, got three people from the original Street Smarts team: Brian, Chris and Kristen. George said that this final battle would determine once and for all who was better - Book Smarts or Street Smarts. Tana waited for her new employees to leave the boardroom and then quickly asked George if there was any chance of changing the teams around. Carolyn answered, just as quickly, "No." George explained that part of the challenge was to deal with people you might not want to work with.
Back up in the suite, the two bosses commiserated about their employees. Tana called her group the "Three Stooges" while Kendra said she was challenged to work with people who all had some degree of incompetence. Kendra admitted that having her employees help decide her future was scary.
The next day, Kendra met Danny, Erin and Michael at Webster Hall, the site of her big event: the Best Buy Video Game World Championship. Kendra and her employees got the full tour of the funky space. Kendra said that she had to organize exactly how the tournament would be laid out in the space and plan the schedule of the event. Kendra also knew that she needed to keep her clients happy. Those clients were EA, the developer and publisher of Fight Night Round 2; PlayStation, the maker of the PlayStation2 game system on which the game would be played; and Best Buy, the electronics giant and sponsor of the event.
At the Chelsea Piers, Tana had her own work cut out for her. She met Chris, Brian and Kristen, whom Tana called the "most explosive personalities that ever existed." Tana was tasked with essentially putting together a mini Olympics - an exhibition of Olympic athletes competing in gymnastics, track and beach volleyball. She would have to coordinate all of the athletes and VIPs. Tana said that it would take a team of twelve to do the job right - she had only four.
Back at Webster Hall, executives from Best Buy and EA arrived. Danny brought them up to a meeting area where they joined Erin; Kendra was downstairs dealing with other matters. There seemed to be some miscommunication as Danny said he didn't know when Kendra was going to arrive - and Kendra, for her part, didn't know that the meeting had started. Danny asked the assembled executives if they would mind waiting for Kendra, but he couldn't stall for long. Danny said that Best Buy pushed him to start the meeting and so he had no choice but to begin. Danny opened with a little jingle to warm up the crowd, but only got a confused reaction. Then Danny launched into the group's game plan, but he seemed to stumble along. Erin said that Danny was "sort of scatterbrained" and couldn't communicate well. Finally, an executive from Best Buy interrupted Danny and said that with less than 24 hours to go, he had seen no timeline or layout for the event. The executive said that he was "concerned" that he didn't have any idea how the next day was going to work. In an interview, Danny called the meeting a "nightmare." Erin broke away and ran downstairs to find Kendra in a discussion about the project. Erin got Kendra upstairs to try and salvage the meeting. Kendra apologized and took the executives on a whirlwind tour of the facilities, explaining how the event would work. Luckily, she seemed to turn the mood around. An EA executive said that Kendra communicated her vision of the event and that helped to alleviate a lot of fears just one day before the tournament.
Tana and Carolyn shared a limo as Chris, Brian and Kristen drove a van to the group's meeting with NYC2012. When they arrived at the offices, Tana, Carolyn and Brian went up to the meeting while Chris and Kristen looked… and looked for parking. The representatives of NYC2012 gave a quick rundown on who they were and what they wanted. They told Tana, Brian and Carolyn that they represented more than 1,700 Olympians from 50 countries. Their goal was to bring the Summer Olympic Games to New York. The event that Tana was in charge of at the Chelsea Piers would involve some of their Olympians competing in events like track, gymnastics and beach volleyball. Unfortunately, Tana was pulled out of the meeting as the NYC2012 representatives were talking. Chris and Kristen were calling Tana because they had been unable to find a parking spot. Tana shot back that she didn't know New York City any better than they did. She told them to find a spot, park and join the meeting. In an interview, Tana was even more blunt. She said that she would have no problem firing any of her employees if they didn't perform. Now, while Tana was out of the meeting on the phone call, Brian began to talk about the fact that he was a magician. Luckily, Tana stepped back in. Stuck in their van, with nowhere to park, Kristen and Chris were frustrated. In fact, Kristen said she didn't care if they won or lost the task. "My ass is no longer on the line," she said.
At Webster Hall, Kendra put all of the PlayStation2 gaming kiosks down in the basement because she had a contractual obligation to display only games from EA in the main ballroom. But Amy, PlayStation's representative, was not happy at all that her company's games were stuck down in the basement. Amy complained that their kiosks were relegated to the tiny, out-of-the way area by the bathrooms. Amy told Kendra that she looked forward to seeing what Kendra could do with the space overnight. In an interview, Amy laid it on the line. She said that Kendra hadn't done anything to make their area cool or give it a PlayStation feel. Amy warned that if the situation wasn't rectified, there was a distinct possibility that PlayStation would pull out of the event entirely.
