Stephen Baldwin calls him mother and tells her that the Carol Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund has another check for $20,000.

The two teams are working for Redbook and Dial this week. Tito is going to be PM for Empressario and Carol will be the PM for Hydra.

They have to create a photo essay advertorial that supports their core values. Piers thinks the campaign needs to be directed at women in their 30’s who have lots of sex.

Stephen wants to put Trace in a bath with his guitar.

The models for Hydra’s campaign are in their early twenties and Piers thought they were too young and that Carol should front it but she didn’t want to wear all the hats.

While Tito is the PM at Empressario, Stephen is doing more of the directing. Omarossa is stepping back to let the guys take charge. She then wants to get Trace in a photo with his shirt off with two other male models. It looks a little strange.

Lennox takes charge and the shoot with is great.

Tito starts getting frustrated with Stephen who is trying to dictate the direction of the campaign.

Piers does the presentation for Hydra while Omarosa does the presentation to start and then when Tito takes over, he seems to struggle with the presentation. Omarosa is sure they have lost and will go after Tito for cutting her image.

In the boardroom, The Donald tells Hydra that they won.

Once Donald Trump starts to find out what went wrong, Tito says Omarosa pushed the PM on him after she originally wanted it until mr Trump had said the PM would probably get fired. Tito is annoyed that she wont front up to what she said.

At the end though, Tito is fired.

At the Power of Veto competition the couples playing must try and connect a power station with a pile of cables that are buried in containers of peanuts. The varied lengths must be joined to clips on poles down the playing field with the winners being the first team to correctly get the cables connected in the right order. Josh and Sharon complete the task, beating Alex and Amanda by only a couple of seconds.

The completed task also gives some information from the outside world. That John McCain is the front runner in the republican race and that Barack Obama has overtaken Hillary Clinton in the Democratic race for the whitehouse.

Sheila starts ranting at her and Allison says she has no idea what she’s on about. Sheila says she doesn’t want her to talk to her for the rest of the game. Ryan then comes in and it starts getting really heated.

Allison is confused as to why Sheila didn’t come and talk to her first. Sharon is talking to Allison about it when Allison runs inside and goes to the diary room. Her throat is closing up and she’s having an allergic reaction. While Allison is in there with the nurse, Amanda collapses and starts having a fit of sorts.

Someone calls out to get a glass of water but there are no glasses so someone has to get a bowl. The nurse tries to get her to drink but she’s not in good shape. Everyone else is looking on in a state of shock. The paramedics arrive and Amanda complains that all she needs is some sugar. Living on slop is her excuse.

After they have gone, everyone is wondering what is going to happen now. Despite the fact that they’re gone, they’re worried because they’re family. Joshuah feels bad for what he said to her. Alex is sad that she’s gone despite what they’ve said to each other.

Amanda arrives back in the house and Joshuah goes in to give her a hug and everyone is glad to have her back.

Amanda is moved that despite the fact that people don’t get on in the house, they still care about her.

Allison also comes back and everyone is happy to see she is ok too. Amanda, Allison and Sheila all make up and hope for better days in the house and to remember that it is just a game.
