It’s obvious by now that Arsenio is sending a very direct message to Aubrey. He’s using all the adjectives she likes to use when describing herself but he’s applying them to others. I love that he’s subtly schooling her that she doesn’t have anything to offer that he can’t get from other people.
Clay picks Dee Snider next. Great choice for both the team playing and music aspect.
I get it. This will be an outtake for a practical joke.
Sorry, honey, that show was canceled in the ’80′s.
And even though they are bringing this show back, it won’t ever be the same without Dick Clark.
RIP, man. You kept the name Dick cool.
There are only two people left to choose from:
Ha ha, Arsenio. You’ve made your point. Now pick me, damn it!
But Arsenio calls out Teresa. Teresa? Everyone is surprised. As Arsenio points out, even the camera man poked out from behind the camera to give Arsenio an inquisitive look. But Arsenio tells us he wanted to have a nice working environment, so he picked the more pleasant of the last two.
Awesome moment #4: Aubrey is picked last! Bwahahahahahaha!
Clay is quite happy to have Aubrey, since he’s going to do a music variety show. Aubrey comes on and says the boys showed their true colors by picking her last. I’m not sure what that means, but I can’t believe that anyone who fails to realize she isn’t wanted was ever the subject of bullying. Seriously, I believe she feels like she was bullied in school, but I doubt if she actually was. Maybe it was just haters hating, as she puts it, when describing the men’s tactics of leaving her at the bottom of the heap.
Sadly, what this does mean is that she’s going to “overcompensate and step it up” to prove she should have been picked first. Poor Clay – he’s going to have his hands full with these players.
Clay’s group gathers in his war room, which appears to have been re-decorated. He starts off by expressing his appreciation for the people who will be helping him and offers them a detailed description of his charity.
Is that boy wearing eye liner???
Aubrey says that she’s been a Clay hater but now that she’s heard about his charity and how passionate he is about it, she might just climb on board the Clay Train.
Inside Arsenio’s war room, they are talking about the demographics.
Arsenio is doing an excellent job of delegating.
They are discussing the fund raising logistics; apparently there are only 75 seats in the auditorium, which means they have a limited number of options for fundraising. Adam comes on to tell us that he never expected to be eliminated so early and now that he was picked first he feels a lot of pressure to contribute and make a difference.
He proposes they create a kids show and people
will contribute money for children to watch.
Okay, so maybe he wouldn’t have been much of a contender, even if he wasn’t blind sided by the bogus Buick sabotage.
We can’t do clean comedy!
Adam thinks they can, but unless they let Teresa have the mic and host a pretend dress up gala, I don’t see how any of them will be able to appeal to children.
Except maybe this guy.
Arsenio shoots him down quite gently by saying it isn’t in their wheelhouse and it doesn’t speak to the demographic that the charity needs to reach. He says it would be more appropriate for the Make A Wish Foundation. Interestingly, when talking about how good leaders often offer bad ideas, but put up more good ones, he explains he’s dismissing Adam’s idea because “I’m Baracking this mother fucker. I’m the leader.”
But wait, my good ideas are as bad as my jokes?
Baracking – what a great verb. I love this bad ass.
