We were "treated" to 2 edisodes back to back last night. I would have settle for just one in the proper timeslot.
In the first task, The candidates work with Home Depot in conjuction with a Boys And Girls club program. Each team needs to set up a place for disadvantage youth to be able to gather. Lenny, steps up to be project manager. It is then we see just how weak a candidate he is. When the Home Depot Execs come in--he is unprepared. He leaves the task at a crucial time for a shopping excursion. When Gold Rush loses the task, Lee abandons all reason and sticks up for his close ally Lenny. When Lenny is fired, Lee has used up any goodwill he has with his team.
On the second task Goldrush is in turmoil. Donald Trump evens the teams by asking if anyone on Synergy can turn Goldrush around. Unfortunately Michael switches to Goldrush. Michael is Synergy's least desirable candidates because he is so indecisive. The task is to sell a new sandwich for 7-11. Leslie, who has been behind the scenes for most of the season finally takes her turn at PM for Goldrush. Andrea will lead Synergy. Leslie is stubborn and wants to sell the sandwich at 8 dollars. Lee says it's too much. Lee has lost his credibility with the team. Nobody listens to him and they would just as soon see him go.
Synergy wins the task and is rewarded with a trip to DC. Whether their lunch with Senator Schumer was rewarding, depends on where each fall on the political spectrum. My guess is that it was a non-political lunch for the most part. They have enough of that in the boardroom.
Speaking of--Leslie (pictured above) is told by Trump that she should bring 2 people into the boardroom, but hey when was the last time anyone listened to Trump? She brings in Lee who won't shut up. It doesn't matter. Leslie did not listen and she is the 4th Goldrush PM in a row to bite the dust.
