Greetings Gasmii! This week had a bunch of “it’s about
time!” moments, didn’t it? Things took an interesting turn and all I
can say is thank you God I never have to talk about 110% again!
So let’s jump right into our 8th week of Trump torture and pull some more teeth, shall we?
Things start back up inside the Unanimous War room, where Arsenio is
calming down from his Aubrey rant. As he deescalates, Lisa and Penn
return to wait with them to see who has been eliminated.
Lisa queries as to where Aubrey is, then whispers to Teresa to be
careful. She warns the men are “little bitches” who can’t handle a
female who is smarter than them (she means Aubrey, not Teresa).
Uh-oh. Arsenio is telling Penn about why the win meant so much to him
and he’s going over the whole death of his cousin again. This reminds
him of how hard he had to fight for the win and struggle against
Aubrey’s attempts to seem like the team leader. Which in turn, gets him
all riled up again.
Suddenly he’s like one of those drunks who shouts at a park bench full of imaginary foes.
F*&% that whore!
That’s enough to get Lisa’s angry eyes
bulging. She tells Arsenio he better be glad she’s not on his team
because if anyone called her a bitch or a whore they’d have a lot more
problems doing it.
I’m the only one who can call people a whore or a bitch around here!
She was a *%&$ing bitch to me, Lisa!
Now every f*&%ing bitch and whore in America is going to f&*%ing hate you!
We interrupt this regularly scheduled bleep fest to send a shout out to the wardrobe department:
Can we get a smoothing bra on set – STAT???
Suddenly Dayana returns from the board room looking AH-MAZE-ING in the following dress:
This be my resilient Venezuelan beauty.
There is a dramatic pause while everyone waits to see who else
returns and the shocked silence at Lou emerging from the hall is best
described by Penn.
Lisa loses it. She tells Lou she doesn’t care how bad he feels, he
was not an effective leader and it was f-ed up that Dee got sent home.
She tells Dayana she had no ideas and declares them both f*&%ing
useless. Lisa mutters to herself that she has two *bleeped out* brain
deads on her team. Great. She’s stood up and sat down twice already
since arriving, so I guess her workout for the day is done as she stands
up one last time and instructs Penn to get a lot of sleep, since he’ll
be doing 50% of the team’s work with her.
Everyone is traumatized by the negativity.
Lou does his usual face twitches and then tells us that he will not
stand for Lisa calling him a f*&%^ing loser. Actually, she didn’t
call him that. She called him f*&%ing useless. I wonder if that is
The next day, Arsenio skypes Magic Johnson to tell him about the
money he won for the Magic Johnson Foundation. Arsenio tells Magic about
his cousin’s death and says if she had had an opportunity to be tested
in Cleveland, maybe she’d still be alive today. Magic feels Arsenio’s
This is a man with a deep soul. And a baseball team.
And a few restaurants, not to mention some gyms,
movie theaters and Starbucks franchises.
After announcing he was HIV+ in 1991 and not only remaining AIDS free
for the last 21 years, but managing to create an economic empire, the
man truly has proven his magic on and off the court. How does he do it?
My theory: a little marijuana a day keeps the immunity suppression away.
It would appear Arsenio and Magic are
tight, as Arsenio refers to him as Earvin, rather than the name he is
more famous for. Magic appears to be very appreciative. Arsenio tells us
the foundation is starting a new program to bring free discreet mobile
testing to inner city areas where people might not be able to afford to
be tested. He’s happy to be able to contribute.
And Magic is happy to accept.
How can you not love that smile?
I’m all mushy and giggly with both of these boys radiating their
gorgeous smiles that can’t help but brighten your day. Plus they’re
playing manipulative music to be sure I’m feeling the love right now. It
seems to be affecting Arsenio too, because now he’s saying maybe he
didn’t handle things that well with Aubrey, but he’s going to put it all
behind him and focus on his charity.
The teams assemble and guess who is still in the game.
Aubrey has decided to spin the whole episode and claim she was being
bullied and now she’s going to tough it out and fight for her charity,
which is about bullying. She’s a genius, but she’s also nuts. She wasn’t
bullied – she was called out on the carpet for true actions that
disrupted the balance – it is a very different thing! In fact, I think
it’s terrible that she now claims she’s being bullied, when she admitted
in the last task that she was not being sensitive to Arsenio’s desire
to have a different picture be used. If we go back and re-watch that
episode (but why would we ever?), I think it was her doing all the
pushing around! She’s a diabolical hypocrite!
This week, the teams have to make a commercial for Entertainment.com
to illustrate their new on-line memberships and mobile coupons. Blah
blah blah, who cares.
Ivanka is looking particularly lively and fetching.
Dorkus Amongus…. meh.
Dayana immediately tells Sparky she will be the Forte project manager
without consulting with her team first. I like that she’s grabbing the
bull by the horns, since her team never gives her the time of day. I
think this is a smart move, since she lost one of her only two advocates
when Dee was sent home.
Unanimous does huddle up and it is decided that Teresa will be their
project manager. I’ve got a bad feeling about that one. She tells us she
wants to win some money for her charity, since she lost the last task
by $14.00. Not really. You lost by $35,014, sweetheart. Anyway, she’s
worried because she says Arsenio and Aubrey are like a ticking time bomb
and could go off at any moment.
For some reason, Sparks is lowering his reward to twenty thousand
dollars, but thankfully, Entertainment.com ups the stakes with an
additional forty. Why the arbitrary amounts rewarded by the Donster?
Aubrey and Arsenio decide to hash out their differences. Aubrey says
she heard what he said about her and the words hurt her feelings and
she’s upset that he would think those things of her. I’ll grant her the
words were hurtful, but never in what we see of the conversation does
she address her inappropriate behavior which brought them to that point.
I think perhaps our little genius just can’t see beyond herself, since
it’s all about Aubrey, as her show was so aptly named. Anyway, Arsenio
acknowledges that he was angry and he never intended to hurt her. For
that he apologizes, which she seems to accept. It irritates me that she
tells him she grew up watching his show and loving him. Didn’t she tells
us before that she never really watched his show?
In the Forte war room, Penn informs the team that he won’t be around after 4 pm because he has to do a show.
Lisa imagines a world where she is left alone with Lou and Dayana.
She tells us she’s mad because Lou and Dayana don’t have a brain cell
between them. This is an alarming turn of events, since she previously
stated they had 5 brain cells between them.
Who is leaking do you think?
Dayana proposes an idea to touch the heart; a realistic scenario
where a couple uses the coupon for each of the phases of their love
life. The team decides to get behind the idea. Surprisingly, Lisa seems
quiet and acquiescent.
In Unanimous, the team is throwing around ideas and Aubrey is also surprising me.
Her mouth is shut.
Clay starts talking about his grandfather
clipping coupons every Sunday and Arsenio suggests they could get Paul
to play that part in their commercial. They ask Paul if he would be
willing to dowdy himself up for the commercial and he agrees.
He’s not as cranky as he seems.
And the guy on the show is much more lovable than the guy I’ve seen screaming at his kids on his own show.
The Forte team is now riding in a van and hashing out their plot line.
Does anyone know about this?
So here’s a shocking turn of events. Lisa
thinks their idea is adorable. Holy kamoly has hell frozen over? What
isn’t surprising is that Lou sits resentfully in the van, because
despite the fact that he is now 60 years old, he thinks he could have
played the young man wooing the young woman (who he wants to be Dayana)
in their commercial.
Lou tells us the team is full of shit and should be using star power.
Dayana asks Lou if he will take care of banners for the presentation.
At Unanimous, they are in their shooting space and drafting their script. It sounds pretty racy.
At least they are amusing themselves.
Forte is also working on their script. As Lisa tweaks Penn’s
dialogue, she acknowledges she’s an expert at what a desperate woman
will say to try to get a date. In testimonial, she tells us that Dayana
is less annoying as the project manager because the pretty girl will
defer to others area of expertise. Lisa continues that when Dayana isn’t
in charge she tries to squeeze in ideas like an annoying kid.
What Lisa doesn’t admit to is that Dayana came up with their present idea, which she likes.
They are ready to start shooting and Dayana definitely seems to be in
charge. Penn comes on to tell us that Lisa and Dayana are listening to
each other and speaking respectfully and it’s as close to a miracle that
an athiest like him has ever seen.
Lou wants them to do some more shots from different angles, but
Dayana says they don’t have time for that. Lou is very concerned. Other
than Lou’s worries, things seem to be going very well with the Forte
It’s so nice to see Lisa in a different light for once.
At Unanimous, they are preparing to start shooting. Teresa tells Paul
it”s time to go into hair and makeup. She explains to the makeup artist
that they want to make him look all fuddy duddy.
You want to un-do all that coolness???
P.S. Why is this girl behind the camera? I think she’s interesting and beautiful!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It’s Wilford Brimley!
Hosting the BBC’s Playhouse Theatre
Paul’s having a great time.
Well, she’s been laying low and being quiet, but of course, Aubrey
can’t contain herself. As Teresa is directing, she giddily turns to
Aubrey just after she says action and laughs about the fact that she’s
calling the shots. Aubrey reeks of condescension.
Teresa is so naive and cute. She thinks she’s a director because she said action.
She then goes on to refer to Teresa as a muppet baby. Whew! For a
minute I thought our diabolical genius had been silenced for good from
the last traumatic board room. Nice to see her coming around.
Forte is wrapping up their shooting. It seems like a cute story, although the male they cast is sort of dumpy looking.
Seriously, this is the best man they could find for the part?
Dayana loves it, though.
As they are prepping for the next shot, Dayana tells Penn and Lisa
that she’s very happy with what they are doing. Lisa agrees. Dayana
tells them they wrote a good script and Penn expresses his appreciation.
Lou sits and stews because he didn’t get to act in the commercial. He
says he can play a young man perfectly.
Penn has to go and he comes to tell Lou directly. After a few ear
wiggles, Lou comes on to tell us it is wrong of Penn to be leaving and
not fighting for his charity. Personally I think Penn is to be admired
that he’s killing himself here for his charity and still meeting his
performance obligations. I haven’t heard him complain once and this has
to be at least the second time he’ll be operating on very few hours of
DJ comes to visit and the group tells him things are going well. He
observes Dayana running the show and he acknowledges she may have done a
very smart thing by assigning creative to Penn and Lisa early on. If
she wins, it’s all great and if she doesn’t she’s got places she can
At Unanimous, they are now shooting Aubrey’s scenes (she’s playing
Paul’s daughter in the commercial). Clay tells us that the confrontation
between Arsenio and Aubrey may have been exactly what they needed, as
Aubrey has meshed into the group this week. Thankfully, he’s smart
enough to understand that Aubrey is a loose canyon and she can’t be
counted on to remain cooperative.
Arsenio appears to have a minor injury, which I find very distracting.
It’s 2012. Do we still need the Flesh Band aid rant? (RIP George Carlin)
Ivanka comes to check on the team and she must have had a really good
meal recently. Because she’s lively and not at all animatronic.
She loves Paul’s look and says it was the highlight of her week.
She also secretly suspects he really is a dweeb at home.
She asks the team how things are going between Aubrey and Arsenio. He
tells her that he wishes there could have been another way to get to
where they are now, but right now things are perfect. And just as he
finishes that statement and Teresa starts trying to explain the
concept, our little bright eyes can’t stand being left out of the
Ivanka, you should pay attention to me, because I’m an only child
and extremely special and really there is no one else who can blow
as much brilliant bull shit up your butt as I can, so just listen as I
continue to say absolutely nothing with conviction and confidence.
The bad news; they all see through you now, sweetheart.
At Forte, things are still rocking. Looks like Lisa is directing some
of the scenes now and Dayana is pleased with the results. I can’t
believe the word’s I’m hearing, and I’m guessing you won’t either;
“Trust me, no one likes to be annoyed and angry
more than I do, because it’s fun. And, I know
everybody is going to faint when I say this,
but, maybe Dayana is more than just a pretty face.”
And so, with that, Lisa zero’s in on another target to destroy.
But this one is with good reason.
Dayana had asked Lou to do banners to be sure they have branding
available during the presentation. He still hasn’t done it and then he
tells them he doesn’t really know how to do it and has no idea how to
send an e-mail. Lisa has a good point when she asks what else is he good
for besides flexing his muscles.
At Unanimous, they are running out of time. Teresa dispatches Clay
and Arsenio to go edit the footage they’ve bagged so far. She remains
behind to direct the remaining shots with her stellar actors, Aubrey and
Paul. Teresa is nervous about the time left and she’s distracted.
Hello? I’m pointing with brilliance here. Think you could pay attention?
Aubrey tells us that this competition is about who is going to be the
most efficient business leader. She says no one in their right mind
would think that was Lisa or Paul.
Meanwhile, Paul thinks up another multi-million dollar idea.
(How many have you come up with, Aubrey?)
At Forte, the three team members in NYC are in the editing room
cutting their commercial together. Lou thinks they should insert the
company logo in the right hand corner of the screen, but neither Lisa or
Aubrey like the idea. They do humor him by seeing what it would look
like on the screen before nixing the idea, so kudos to them for not
dissing him entirely. Although Lisa did say, “It was a good idea, Lou.
But not really.”
They discover that their piece is exactly sixty seconds long and they
celebrate with delight. Dayana turns to Lou and dares him not to love
“Of course I love it. I would tell you if I didn’t.”
To which, he immediately comes on in testimonial and tells us, he
doesn’t like the commercial. Because they didn’t focus enough on the
branding. Personally, I think he’s just pouting that he didn’t get to
At the Unanimous editing bay, Clay and Arsenio seem relaxed and are
having a great time. They are doing the foley for a zipper that is
supposed to sound like pants being unzipped but is really a computer
bag. Clay is joking that his nuts got stuck.
The FCC feels the need to bleep (and blur) out the word “nuts” if it
refers to testicles. Yet if he had said testicles it would have been
acceptable. WTF??? FCC is dumber than a box of rocks.
The rest of the team shows up in editing and that is when Clay and
Arsenio realize they are running out of time and they have to step it
up. As they continue to cut, Aubrey interrupts and points out that maybe
using the word old fashioned is a diss to the coupon books and they
would be better off saying old school. Clay gives an incredulous look
and says they have no time to do a voice over to modify the concern.
Aubrey reverts to the age she was the last time some one told her no.
There does seem to be some concern on the team that the term old
fashioned could be offensive, but they decide to try to slip it past the
judges. Teresa tells us if they lose, she will be sure that it is
either Clay or Arsenio that goes down, since they were the editors.
It is the morning of the presentations and the entire Unanimous team
comes on stage to make their presentation. Teresa does a fine job
relating Entertainment.com to being a mother of four and always looking
for a way to save money. Her presentation is perfectly acceptable, but
afer she finishes, Aubrey decides to speak up, making it look like she
is a co-presenter and responsible for the material about to be
Is this attention grabbing behavior calculated or just a product of only childism?
Their commercial is very suggestive but also cute and funny. Still,
the judges winced at the word old fashioned and although they clap
politely, it doesn’t seem like they were totally in love with the
finished product. Aubrey tells us that Teresa thinks everyone is
friends, but she proposes that Clay and Arsenio will “gang bang” their
project manager the minute they lose. Ummmm…. never mind – just gonna
let that one go.
Team Forte delivers their commercial next and I personally prefer it
better. I think it is a cute little ditty that does a better job of
illustrating all the things entertainment.com covers in terms of their
product line. It doesn’t show off the usage of aps like the other team,
but it seems like the judges share my opinion as they are wearing bigger
smiles and are clapping at the end of the commercial.
Lou tells us that fireworks will fly in the board room tonight. He
says he doesn’t trust Lisa because she has two personalities. He points
out she is negative, mean and abrasive. So…. what’s the other
personality? Then he says he’s going to make sure they know he doesn’t
appreciate being called a bleeping loser. Again, Lou, no one called you a
loser. They called you useless. Get it right! Lou seems to have a very
self-serving agenda and doesn’t really understand the concept of a team.
It’s about time for Sparky to make an appearance, so he chats with
the execs about what they liked best from each commercial. For team
Unanimous, they like how they presented as a team and how they presented
a bold and gutsy story. They loved Paul and even Aubrey’s performances.
The negatives were that they felt the term old fashioned was too
negative and that perhaps the storyline was too risque. They also left
out vital information such as the cost of the product.
For team Forte, they execs loved the creativity and story line. They
were very happy with the parts of the product that were mentioned and
they encompassed all the ways you could use the product. In terms of
negative for Dayana’s team, they thought it was a snooze fest with
boring characters. They used nicer words but I’m getting tired.
Inside the board room, the Forte team quickly reveals that Lou was
their weakest player. Lisa admits to Sparky that she was very impressed
with Dayana and admits they had a lot of fun and that it went very well.
She says Dayana was a great project manager and is excellent at
organization. She also says Dayana may not have many ideas, but that
seems unfair when they used Dayana’s idea both this week and last week.
Aubrey watches helplessly as Lisa changes her mind about the pretty one.
Lou interrupts to tell Sparky that Lisa is lucky she isn’t a man or
he would through her right through a wall. He starts bitching to her
about calling him a bleeping loser. The whole thing is bizarre. Lisa
tells Lou this should be saved for outside the board room. She also
tells him she doesn’t curse in the board room just before swearing at
him. Then she warns that if he physically threatens her again there will
be a problem, to which he says he doesn’t threaten women.
Team Forte should be called Team Double Talk.
Ivanka and Sparky want to know if she called Lou a loser. She can’t
remember, but she says if he says she did, he’s probably right and she
apologizes but tells him it is inappropriate to threaten people. But I’m
irritated because she didn’t say that. I can’t believe I’m defending
her, when she’s usually a bitch I can’t stand, and to be honest I hated
her venomous rant after the last boardroom, but she didn’t call him a
loser. She called him useless. It’s not the same thing.
This is quickly disintegrating into a Lou and Lisa bickering session.
He calls her phony, except I don’t think that’s the case at all. She
points out that he’s been kissing her ass for two days and now he’s
bringing up all this discontent in the boardroom. Lou claims he says
things right to her face as he stares at the table and brings up
unaddressed issues in the most inappropriate moment possible.
Thankfully Sparky starts asking the other team if they heard Lisa
call Lou a loser. None of them can remember hearing that but it
distracts Sparky enough to focus on Aubrey and Arsenio and their feud.
Everyone tells him that this week there was peace in the war room and
that things were much better. Aubrey is wisely remaining silent. Arsenio
tells Trump that he thinks he got the right results with the wrong
words. Well said!
When Sparks asks Teresa who she will bring back if her team loses,
she tells him that all five would have to come back, because there were
no weak links. Sparky tries to scare her by saying the last time that
happened two people got fired. WRONG! Tia didn’t bring anyone back with
her upon Trump’s word that no one else would get fired. Besides,
mathematically, he can’t do any more double eliminations – there are
seven episodes left and 8 players.
Teresa can’t name anyone and Ivanka interrupts to ask about the fact
that Aubrey took over explaining the concept. Teresa admits she didn’t
like that Aubrey was doing it, because as the project manager she wanted
to be the one to explain the idea, but she also didn’t think Aubrey
meant any disrespect by it. Ivanka does a great service to everyone by
explaining to Aubrey that her actions are polarizing and it’s this kind
of stuff that alienates her from the team.
What do you think he would have done if his kids were stupid?
There is some lighthearted banter in which Trump tries to imagine how
Clay would do hanging out with Paul and his biker buddies and what it
would be like for Clay to work in his shop.
Then Trump tells the teams that the execs loved both commercials and it is time to view them. Unanimous is up first.
Paul predicts he’ll never live this down.
Look! He’s blushing!
Trump asks team Forte what they thought of the video and Dayana says
she thought it was entertaining and that Paul was great. Lisa says it
was very good but not better than their video. Penn says he’s not a fan
of double entendres, but for all that, he did in fact like the video.
Trump then rolls out the Forte video and it doesn’t seem as fun as
when it was being shot. When it finishes, Trump asks Dayana why none of
them starred in it. She tries to tell Trump that none of them fit the
casting, but Lou interrupts to say he wanted to be in it but she said
no. Lisa points out Lou never said he wanted to be in it.
Ooohhhh we’re treading on dangerous ground here. Teresa tells Trump
she could have seen Dayana playing the role of the young woman and
Arsenio chimes in to say he could see Penn playing the part of the man.
Trump agrees. Penn says he’s too old to play that part and Trump asks
“for a young woman?” He jokes Penn is much too old for a young woman and
he hates those kind of men…
Trump asks Clay which commercial he likes better, and of course he
says he likes his teams commercial better. Then Trump asks Lou which one
he likes and Lou also says he likes Forte’s commercial better. His
reason is that they used star power. What he means is he’s mad that he
didn’t get to star in his team’s video, so he’ll punish them by throwing
them under the bus and saying he liked the commercial where team
players get to star in the product. Does the man not think before he
Lisa says it is easy to be a turncoat when you did nothing on the
project and your heart isn’t invested. Lou’s face is twitching like
crazy at this point. There must be some correlation to his brain
function and facial muscles.
Lisa tells Lou that Penn did more in his few hours than Lou did the
entire time he was there. When Lou responds with, “so I didn’t do
nothing, right? I just sat around, right?” Lisa tells him pretty much
and then reviews his task list. She mentions the printing he was
supposed to do that he couldn’t and that he helped haul props., but
that’s where the list ends.
Someone just figured out where her next meal is coming from.
Poor Lou. I’m not saying he’s dumb, but he’s certainly not sharp
enough to talk his way out of the conundrum he’s just walked himself in
to. The Trumps are asking him if it is a good idea to say he likes the
other team’s commercial better, while also saying it is good to be
I want you to be honest, but then again, you will pay for it.
The exec’s opinions are now reviewed and big pointers are that
Dayana’s video didn’t show how to actually use the ap, while Teresa’s
video used the word old fashioned, which wasn’t a nice word.
The Godfather declares Unanimous the winner.
Teresa gets emotional, now that she has managed to win money for the
little boy she is fighting for. I can’t help but wonder if this wasn’t
once again rigged because Dayana already won money for her charity,
while Teresa was empty handed up until this point. The way the show was
edited, I was pretty sure all along that Forte would win and Teresa
would be sent home. So to hear that Unanimous was crowned the victor has
got me eying the whole episode with suspicion once again.
Unanimous exits the board room and are celebrating in their office.
Teresa is squaling in this really annoying high pitched voice about how
happy she is. Aubrey embraces her and tells her that she knew they would
In the boardroom, Lou and Lisa are at it again. Lou claims Lisa is
just trying to cover her ass and she rips into Lou that she’s the only
one who is guaranteed to be safe because she does all the work. Back in
Unanimous’ room, Paul and Arsenio agree that they would never want to
bleep with Lisa or be on her team, since she keeps losing.
Penn explains the problem the best, which is that although Lou says
he is a team player, he also says the team should lose. He tells Trump
that if Lou said they should star in the video, he doesn’t remembering
hearing it and that he can’t just make a suggestion. If he thinks they
should all be in the video, he also has to offer an idea to facilitate
Oh crap. Trump is going back to the casting again and asks Penn if he
thinks he could have played the part of the guy in the video. Penn says
no, while sexagenarian Lou is shaking his head yes. Lisa chimes in that
it would be creepy to have a fifty six year old man with a twenty
something girl in this context.
It’s creepy to me that Trump has to do the math to determine if he qualifies as creepy.
There is a quick scramble as they all race to assure Sparky that the sentiment doesn’t apply to him.
I can’t wait to sink my teeth into your ham hocks, Lisa.
Trump asks Dayana who will be getting a free pass and is allowed to
leave the board room. She deliberates but ultimately says that Penn
wasn’t there for the whole time and contributed so much that he will get
the free pass. She then tries to explain how much great work Lisa did
too, which has Trump marveling that she could say such nice things about
a woman who’s been gunning for her week after week. But Dayana is
classy and honest. I love that girl.
Trump asks Lisa if she has had a change of heart and Lisa admits this
week was an eye opener and refers to Dayana as incredibly capable. They
are all sent out of the boardroom and Penn gets to retreat to the
Unanimous holding tank.
In the waiting area, Lou and Lisa are at it again, but Lisa keeps
getting the last and most vicious word. Lou isn’t really mentally cut
out for this sort of battle. Dayana sits demurely and says nothing.
Once they are back in the boardroom, the discussion quickly morphs
from how many times Dayana has been in called back to how useful Lou is.
Lisa tells Ivanka that Lou is not vindictive, he’s just only good for
brawn, which is not useful. What Lou doesn’t have is ideas.
When Lou tries to pull the hearing impairment card, Lisa calls
bullbleep. Lou makes absolutely no sense as he says he gives 110%, he
doesn’t fight, he doesn’t get angry, he supports his team and he always
tells the truth. He has contradicted every single one of those
statements this episode.
Ivanka points out that Lou is complaining that Lisa’s cursing causes a
negative attitude but his choosing the other teams video as better is
also a negative attitude. Lou is unable to respond.
He would still be stuck like this if Ivanka hadn’t made a follow up statement.
Lou tells us all that it takes him longer to digest things because he
has to focus and listen harder. It’s tough for him if more than one
person is talking at a time. That is all understandable and justifiable,
but as Lisa points out, once he’s digested the information, he needs to
vocalize it. She then accuses him of using the hearing as an excuse
when he needs to. I kind of agree with her on this one.
Dorkus Amongus interrupts the shouting match between these two to
point out that he can’t stand that Lou back stabbed his team but he
admires that Lou had the cojones to tell Trump his real opinion. I would
agree with DJ if in fact that had been Lou’s real opinion. The thing
is, I don’t think it really was. I think the way Lou thought this would
all go down is that he would say he liked their video better because
they used their star power and it would teach his winning team a lesson
to be sure to use him in the next task. This was a pathetic strategy
that backfired on him and now he’s forced to stick with an opinion he
doesn’t really have.
Trump tells Lou it doesn’t sit well with him that he said he liked
the other team’s project better. He says loyalty is very important to
him and with that, he fires Lou Ferrigno.
“Take it back. I don’t want to be fired.”
What the hell? Has that ever worked on this show? I would never dare
to tell Trump to take back a decision he has made. It’s actually kind of
pathetic as Lou repeats several times, “I don’t want to be fired.”
Look Lou, I’ll still dream about you. But there’s no place for you here anymore.
And so, our old friend the Hulk is sent packing.
But not before exacting a little revenge on the elevator doors.
Good bye, Mr. 110%
I can’t stand disloyalty.
He dug his own grave. But don’t worry, I’ll get him out.
We’ve always heard that growing up from you; loyalty is everything.
Except when it comes to wives.

An Open Message to RobbinAnber:
My dear idiotic creature, what kind of forum do you think you are
participating in? This is Survivor Sucks. While valid information is
occasionally exchanged the main reason most people participate here is
because we enjoy being snarky and sarcastic and enjoy having fun at the
expense of stupid Reality TV contestants. Let's see what Wikipedia has
"The tone of the board is combative, sarcastic and caters to those who
ridicule the Reality TV genre in its entirety. Several Sucks members
have also successfully applied as participants in one reality show or
another including Susie Smith, the runner-up of Survivor: Gabon, Rafe Judkins, the third placer in Survivor: Guatemala and Todd Herzog, winner of Survivor: China. Like many open forums, in-jokes and cliques are prevalent, and a significant portion of member entertainment is derived from flaming newbies
and taunting established community outcasts. However, the membership
also includes avid fans and reality television celebrities. Those who
are sensitive to criticism of their favorite shows or characters are
welcome to participate but will quickly become aware that criticism is
not censored. Very little is censored on Sucks and foul language often
prevails. Images exhibiting genitalia are not permitted but in general
the site should be considered not safe for work."
You spend so much time here and yet still seem to be shocked that people
are "mean" here. Guess what? THAT IS THE NATURE OF THIS BOARD!!! No
matter how much you whine, it is not going to change for you. What is
next, are you going to match into a McDonald's and demand waiter
service? Are there no other places you can go to Spam every thread with
bullshit about Clay? You claim that myself and others keep dragging
threads off topic, yet you only make posts about how Clay is wonderful
in various threads or you make posts to attack those that you think are
"mean" to Clay.
You are not going to convince any of us that he is anything more than a
third-rate singer who was too cowardly to come out of the closet (unlike
our hero, first-rate singer and sex god Adam Lambert!!!). Give it up.

Remember a few weeks back when we unequivocally
believed that both teams loved the hell out of each other? Yeah, well,
how quickly things can change, especially when you're dealing with
self-obsessed semi-celebs. When we left off, Arsenio Hall had just gone batshit crazy on Aubrey O'Day in the board room. This caused her to storm off, putting her future on the show in jeopardy.
When we resume this week, Hall is still fuming. And he's pulling no
verbal punches. "I've had to suck it all up and let a bitch treat me
like shit," he yells to his teammates and anyone else who's willing to
listen. "Fuck that whore!" Whoa! Take it easy there, buddy! It's just an
overrated reality show.
Of course, Lisa Lampanelli is having none of this.
She berates Hall and says he better lay off that sort of misogynistic
language. Her anger is only further exacerbated when Dayana Mendoza and Lou Ferrigno
return from the board room – Lampanelli knows she's now stuck with the
two of them. "You're both fucking useless," she says. (Side note: Paul Teutul Sr., the unsung hero of this season, is seen munching on strawberries amid all the chaos.)
After Hall informs Magic Johnson (via video-chat) that he's won $50K
for the former basketball star and new L.A. Dodger owner's charity, the
contestants appear before Mr. Trump to receive their next task. But
wait? Who is that redheaded creature? Ah, yes. It's Aubrey O'Day. It
seems she's put her tiff with Hall behind her for charity.
This week’s task? Both teams must create a 60-second commercial
promoting Entertainment.com (it's that company that makes those coupon
books your mom loves). Without consulting her team, Mendoza volunteers
to be project manager; Teresa Giudice, with her team’s approval, will lead the other squad.
Both teams start brainstorming. Giudice's team decides to go with a
commercial that plays off – what else? – sex. Essentially, the premise
of the spot will be that a dad, Teutul Sr. – easily capturing the
episode by losing the tough-guy shtick and dressing like the suburban
stiff most men aged 20-30 will soon become: parted hair, bright green
sweater, Hair Club for Men-dyed mustache, etc. – thinks he hears his
daughter (O'Day) and her boyfriend (randomly-hired actor dude) going at
it in her bedroom. Really, though, they're just checking out
Entertainment.com's new mobile app. (Very believable, indeed.) In the
commercial, O'Day utters such lovely lines as "Here, take it in your
hand" and "So you just have to move your hand up and down?" So, at least
The other team, led by Mendoza, learns they'll be undermanned; Penn Jillette
has to leave later in the day for a magic gig. Lampanelli is pissed.
Mendoza’s team decides to go with a commercial centered on a
relationship fueled by a couple's love of Entertainment.com (this is
weird, creepy and amazing all at once). Ferrigno is upset that the team
wants to use hired actors instead of their team members. After all,
isn't he qualified to act? I mean, c'mon guys, this is THE Hulk. His
team couldn't care less. They view Ferrigno as a walking cinder block.
Back on the sex-commercial team’s side, things are going smoothly,
although O'Day does steal the spotlight when project consultant Ivanka Trump
pays a visit. Nonetheless O’Day, per usual, has fun criticizing others:
she finds Giudice's directorial skills amusingly awful. "Watching
Teresa direct is painful," she says, referring to her project manager as
a "puppet baby."
After filming is complete, Clay Aiken and Hall hit
the editing room; O'Day soon comes in and offers last-minute suggestions
for change. Aiken concisely sums up her position. "Aubrey's biggest
talent is covering her ass," the ginger-mopped singer says.
Now sans Jillette, Mendoza's team starts shooting their
commercial. Shockingly, Lampanelli is jelling with Mendoza, her usual
nemesis. "Maybe Dayana is more than a pretty face," Lampanelli admits.
Ferrigno, perpetually in the shadows, tries to offer some directorial
suggestions to Mendoza, who quickly dismisses him. This prompts
Ferrigno, now feeling slighted, to say he doesn't like the commercial.
Both teams present their ads to the Entertainment.com executives and
then head to the board room. Mendoza's team – especially Lampanelli –
feel Ferrigno was as effective as a rotting corpse. "Get ready for an
elevator ride, Lou," Lampanelli says. Ferrigno doesn't like this . . .
at all. "If you were a man, I would have thrown you through a window,"
he says. Umm, Lou. Probably not the right thing to say on network TV,
Teresa's team is much more lovey-dovey. Although eventually the truth
comes out that Giudice felt O'Day, as ever, overstepped her role. "You
are very polarizing," Ivanka Trump says to O'Day. Trump plays both
teams’ videos for the other to see. Ferrigno, when asked what he thought
of the other team's video, admits he likes it better. Oh, snap!
Lampanelli is now calling him Benedict Arnold. Hell, even Trump thinks
Ferrigno should have just shut his yap and stuck by his team’s side.
So who won? Teresa's team. Apparently, the Entertainment.com execs think Mendoza's team's commercial was a bit bland.
Mendoza decides to give Jillette a free pass and Trump excuses him
from the board room. With only Mendoza, Lampanelli and Ferrigno left,
all signs point to Ferrigno getting the ax. "I don't think he has much
to add other than brawn," Lampanelli says, refraining from further
tearing him a new one. Ferrigno, as always, says he gave "110 percent"
(where exactly does that extra 10 percent come from, Lou?). But
feeling that Ferrigno was disloyal to his team in the board room, Trump
has no choice but to let him go. Lou is fired. But wait? Ferrigno begs
Trump to change his mind. Nope. Lou's gone. Nice try.
With the contestants gone, Donald Trump Jr. turns to
his father to state his agreement with daddy’s decision. "We all heard
from you growing up that loyalty is everything," Trump Jr. says. Trump?
Loyalty? What a show!
NEXT WEEK: Hold on! It's the toughest task EVER! Oh, never mind: it's a puppet show. On the bright side, Lisa is still going apeshit.
