Well, as GG isn't up, and I hadn't seen a thread yet, I thought I'd post this topic here.
I really liked this episode, and was really rooting for the guys to win. I feared the worst, as this was pretty much the first time in a couple of weeks that they showed some "strife" within the guys team, with the setting of the price point. The high price point seemed to have saved the task, although at a price of 69.99, they might have sold a lot more grills.
Couple of random points and tidbits:
- The Project Leader for the guys was almost invisible. It seems like Kelly is a natural leader that naturally flows into the role. The only memorable moment of the project leader (His name is Chris, I think?) was that he answered the phone in his boxershort, and you could see he had his nipples pierced. I mean, seriously...yuck
- What a great reward for winning
Anna Kournikova was superhot, Raj is my new hero for betting with her for a date and it looked like they had genuine fun (aside maybe from McEnroe who seemed to find it a bit dissapointing that most of the attention went to Anna's boobies
- I don't really like Pamela, but she was dealt a tough card by having to switch teams. Especially since she had to be project leader right away. She's a hard bitch, but I do think she's quite a good leader. The price point of those silly spunge thingies was a big mistake though.
- Maria's performance on camera was hilarious
I think she's annoying anyway, but that was a new highlight of looking stupid
. I loved the remark Pamela made: "It looks like she's having a seizure"
-Firing Pamela was probably the right choice. I thought nobody on the women's team did an exceptionally bad job, aside from Maria sucking as a salesperson. Still, the price point was definitely the reason why they lost in the end. So, it seems reasonable to hold her accountable, as project leader, for that mistake. However, that didn't seem to be the reason for firing her at all. Trump was going on about her bad people assessment skills...I mean, what? She came into the team for the first time, generally seemed to have placed everyone in the correct position, and when she saw that someone didn't perform, she quickly reassigned her (Maria).
Fire her because of the pricing mistake, or because of her incredibly hard way of dealing with people, okay, but not for something as lame as people assessment skills.
It also seems that George is content with just remaining silent when Trump fired Pam for the (IMHO) wrong reason. Carolyn is a friggin' suckup though. She MUST've slept her way to the top.
All in all, fun episode though!
