The first task was a meatball fundraiser with the most money raised the winner. Brande was the PM for Power and Trace the PM for Plan B. Brande raised the most for Power with $132K who altogether raised $230533 plus $20K for winning the meatball challenge for a total of $250533. Trace didn't open the shop to the public but won the task by raising $419539 solely on donors, with a couple checks of $75K and $100K. Trace won $670K for the American Red Cross, a record amount for the first week of the show.
Brande escaped being fired as PM because she raised the most amount of money on Power with $132K. Omarosa wasn't sent to the boardroom even though she was keeping track of the money and the numbers weren't adding up with what her team said they raised. Brett wound up being fired for several reasons, for giving Brande the PM job, for barely raising any money, and for selecting Omarosa on his team.
