This week's task is to take five rooms at the Lowes Regency Hotel and must cater to their guests' every need. Athena's guest surveys give them the better scores for the win. For their reward, Project Manager Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins won $20,000 for her chosen charity, Sickle Cell Disease Foundation of Georgia.

  • Dennis Implodes and KOTU Lose Again

    8.0
    It was indeed very hard to watch this episode simply for the fact that it's apparent that Dennis Rodman has a drinking problem. He started off incredibly strong and when they were showing how he was getting things going at the beginning, while the ladies were complaining about having to learn how to clean too quickly, I thought maybe KOTU was going to continue their own winning streak.



    Then the vodka came into play.



    I'm actually quite surprised that Donald Trump would pick Dennis for this game. I realize they appear to have a predetermined relationship as Donald continuously comments on how much he likes Dennis. Or maybe that's just for the camera and Donald only liked who he THOUGHT Dennis was. Furthermore, there were a couple of opportunities where Donald could've fired Dennis and relieved KOTU of his antics. Specifically, Donald should've fired Dennis over Tom Green back on Wedding Dress Challenge. It was really sad to see the boardroom meeting, especially when Jesse called out Dennis' drinking problem. The only solace was how Jesse handled the situation. I hope that Dennis gets the help he needs.



    Hopefully KOTU can focus now that the distraction has been taken away and take back a win next week.



    On a side note, I couldn't believe Melissa Rivers' comments about how she shouldn't have to clean such a filthy room. Where most of the ladies commented how they had no idea what it took to clean hotel rooms, appearing to have a new appreciation, she simply whined about it. I certainly hope she gets the boot the next time ATHENA loses.moreless
  • It was painful to watch a great champion like Dennis implode...

    7.5
    For the first 15 minutoes of the show, I thought for sure that Dennis would definitely rise up to the challenge. What made me think that way was seeing him so focused and enthusiastic in the meeting that took place in the war room, when he was making calls, pulling strings and coming up with very good ideas. But, all the enthusiasm in the world can only get you so far. It was evident that he was not talking to his team, and rather talking at them. There was no delegation or direction whatsoever from his part and as if that was not enough he then proceeded to start drinking, roght in the middle of the challenge, only a few hours into it.



    Seeing Dennis implode was painful to watch, it was like watching a train wreck in slow motion.



    Meanwhile, he ladies where to exact opposite, having a great leader in T-Boz, who paid very close attention to detail and was on point on her decisions by telling each and every member on her team what to do.



    For the most part it was smooth sailing for the ladies, while the men where trying to pick up the slack left by Dennis' lack of leadership. They really pulled it together without Dennis as a distraction, when he all of a sudden decided to have fun and go out to dinner with one of the guests, but it was not enough and they found it very hard to dig themselves out of the hole that their leader had put them into.



    Finally in the board room, it was even harder having to watch the men and the ladies as well, pinpoint Dennis' shortcomings.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In a boardroom first, Trump not only declines to ask Kotu Project Manager Dennis whom he'll bring into the boardroom with him for their part in their loss, but he also declines to even dismiss Athena after telling them they won the task. In full view of both teams, he fires Dennis on the spot for bad leadership, five straight weeks of being a disastrous player, and for his obvious drinking problem.

    • The Project Managers in this episode are Dennis for Kotu and Tionne for Athena. Tionne's team wins. Tionne gets $20,000 for the charity of her choice, Sickle Cell Disease Foundation of Georgia.
