  • In this episode, the two teams had to create a Life Lock display and presentation. The project managers for this task were Natalie for Kotu and Brian for Athena. But the two teams so realize they have another task that same day, a jewelry auction.moreless

    This episode was great! It had another twist with the new task on the same day as the Life Lock task presentation so the celebrities didn't have a break between the two tasks. They were all exhausted after fighting in the last boardroom meeting and you see another side to Joan Rivers. She gets very defensive over her daughter when Annie backstabs them by going after Melissa in the boardroom instead of Brande like she said she would. It goes to show, this episode was an amazing one filled with twists and surprises that kept you on the tips of your toes.moreless

    • Project Manager Brian chose to bring Brande and Melissa into the boardroom with him for their part in Athena's loss of the Life Lock task. Although Melissa was targeted for working on the presentation instead of the display, and Brande was targeted for not giving enough effort to help the team, Brian was fired because he didn't manage the team's time well and his concept was bad for the display. Plus, Brian admitted that his head just wasn't in the challenge this time because he just came back from a concert.
