Here is a brief show recap.
The teams are still men versus women. The project manager for Rock Solid was Curtis Stone and the project manager for the Tenacity was Holly Robinson Peete.
Sharon Osbourne was sick, so she sat out for this challenge. Cyndi Lauper had to go to Washington D.C. to meet with President Obama and missed the first part of the challenge.
The challenge was to create two commercials — a 30-second spot and a 10-second spot — for Right Guard Total Defense deodrant. For the challenge each team was given a legendary former professional basketball player to work on the commercial. Rock Solid had Clyde Dexler from the Houston Rockets and the Tenacity had Scottie Pippen from The Chicago Bulls. Before they started they the challenge Donald Trump had them each shoot free throws.The first person to make the free throw would win $ 10,000 for their project manager’s charity. Maria was the first person to shoot the hoop so Holly’s charity won the money.
During the challenge Bret Michaels received a phone call informing him that his daughter was being tested for diabetes, which Bret has had since he was a child.
Tenacity went with the angle of going with the young kid having his first moments of funk. Holly even came up with a song called “Funky God Father”. Both commercials were the same just one being shorter. Pippen did a voice over in the commercial. The Rock Solid team went with the angle of young men with Clyde in a skit with the boys and had two different spots. The executives liked both the commercials and gave their pros and cons of each team.
Before they got the results, Michael Johnson had to speak with Donald Trump. He asked to leave to handle a personal family matter. He said that he might be able to come back but Trump told him not to return as too much time would be lost.
Rock Solid won the challenge with their commercial spot. Curtis Stone won $ 20,000 for his charity “Feeding America”.
Tenacity had to face the board room something that they had avoided since week one. In the board room the discuss who should be fired. Holly goes after Maria who stood her ground. Cyndi stepped in to report on Holly, but Holly stood her ground. When asked who is was the weakest, Summer said that Holly was the strongest and that she could not answer who was the weakest. Holly bought back Maria and Selita back with her to the board room and they discussed the challenge. Ivanka and George felt that Selita was not standing up for herself. Selita Ebanks was fired by Donald Trump.
