CBS News – Celebrity Circuit – Contestant Pulls A Disappearing Act
By Mary-Jayne McKay
… Then again, as Aikin pointed out early in the episode, Jillette had demurred on leading the project and then showed with his ideas that he could have done so quite competently.
… Aikin, for his part, avoided the mistake that got Paul Teutel Sr., fired last week. When Trump said the judges didn’t like the slogan, he brought its creator back to the boardroom.

… It turns out to be a battle of the gingers once more, with Aubrey heading up Team Unanimous and Clay taking the reins for Team Forte.
… “I noticed that Penn like to pitch and repitch his ideas,” Clay observes, eventually caving under what he calls “leading by consensus” and going with Penn’s magical ideas.
… “I can’t fire Dayana,” the curiously coiffed mogul tells Clay. “And I won’t fire you, Clay.”

Rolling Stone – Sweet Smell of Success / And What’s The Fragrance of Failure?
By Dan Hyman
… The project managers for this week are Clay Aiken and O’Day.
… Unfortunately, Clay Aiken isn’t feeling this idea (Damn you, Clay!) “This is not a porno cover,” the singer says, to the disgust of men across the country.
… Despite deferring project-manager duties to Aiken, team member Penn Jillette takes an authoritative role, much to Aiken’s disgust. Jillette also comes up with their slogan for the fragrance: “You Earned It.”
… Aiken must bring back two of his teammates to the boardroom and spare the other. He decides to bring back Jillette – because the magician came up with the team’s horrible slogan – and Mendoza for, well, just being her.

ZAP2iT – It Happened Last Night
… Project Managers: Aubrey and Clay, that latter taking the mantle after Penn basically abdicates. Clay won his previous PM duel with Aubrey, it’s noted.
… Penn, despite not being PM, is kind of steamrolling the brainstorming process. Penn likes “You Earned It” as a slogan…
… Clay is also slightly dubious of “You Earned It” as a slogan, but the whole group really does like it.
… Clay enthuses about his whole team, and Lisa says Clay is one of the top 2 project managers she’s ever worked for, putting him in rarefied company with Her Aubreyness.
… Clay then brings up the “bigger balls” of him taking PM at Penn’s request. Trump is, I think, waiting for Penn to mix it up, but he merely continues to smile smugly.
