    Did Amy actually do better than the others?

    Both Bill and Troy were evenly responsible for the win.
    Troy created the GAME and worked the crowd.
    Bill thought to work the desk and worked the desk.
    Neither alone would have won.

    The goal was to build a game,
    have the people play the game,
    sign up the people,
    and then win by hoping all those people will go lose all their money.

    So Amy just had them fill out the card to play the game.
    Troy had to have them fill out the card and play the game.

    Then Amy hires two helpers, bingo, 5 to 3 (actually 5 to 2 cuz what *did* the K-man do?). Then at the end when the boys are distracted, the girls work the hell out of the crowd and fill out the cards for them. So they get more people (but obviously a lot of those people were towards the end and did'nt have a chace to gamble as much).

    If they would have worked the crowd the whole time like they did at the end, it would have been a different story.

    Katrina, as much as I dislike her, well, Amy actually should have gone this time (for the BIG LIE)(it's not nice to lie to Father Trump))...Amy bless her heart was actually trying this time...and Red - sheesey, the do nothing and I got by on my looks that time - the rest of them would have looked at the Tiger and wondered HOW to fight him, not I CAN'T fight him...no, not Amy, Nick should have gone this time. Nick and Amy *obviously* have some sort of survial pact going.

    But the each of the boys did exactly what they were suppose to do.
    Bill handled the high rollers just like they needed to be done and by whom...
    the crowd was handled by Troy just like they needed to be done and by whom...

    ...(and you the-line was to long kind of people don't realize that a crowd
    begats a crowd and the thought of the other guy mite win it creates an
    instant implulse of I'll-wait-in-line-attitude)...

    The boys had the hi rollers early on who didn't necessarialy leave their games to come look at the Tiger...the Boy's flashy game and show obviously impressed DT (so as far as he's concerned, all 3 worked together just like a good team should (yes, there is an obvious strain 'tween Bill and Troy)

    and Kwamtheman kept in betweem them and it all flat worked.

    BUT...is Troy or Bill the boss man material we need. We all know how
    high-strung, uptight or whatever the Bill is (he's actually gone up a couple
    of notches in my opinion (but still below the T-man)). He froze in the end (again?).
    Troy didn't take control and certainly Kwame didn't...so is it safe to say
    that Amy did and come thru in the clutch or not?

    Doesn't matter...she lied.

    I think Katrina was just associating belly-dancers with the theme of Taj Mahal....so maybe belly dancers around their game area to draw a crowd or drum up excitement.

    and at that point, she was (or thought she was) trying to brainstorm with the "group"...throw anything and everything on the table and hope the picture comes together?

    To be fair, I honestly believe that Kwame has contributed more than we are usually shown with editing. If not, I don't think he would still be around this long. As far as the Casino task, Kwame was PM. It was his directive on the bus that they each spend about 15 minutes brainstorming individually, then put their ideas together to plan their strategy. He was shown on the phone making appointments and contacts, just like Troy and Bill. He also took turns with Troy working the mic and the crowd during the gaming promotion (as much as I love Troy, Troy was not solely responsible for working the crowds). Remember when Versacorp's model tried to poach some of the people who were waiting in Protege's line? It was Troy that shooed her off and Kwame was on the microphone. Kwame was again on the mic when Trump showed up.

    There are more examples, but I don't think we should be too quick to assume Kwame hasn't contributed much. Kwame was assigning tasks in this project, and just because we see Troy or Bill executing something doesn't necessarily mean it was their own idea.

    you're right...I was to harsh on Kwame, especially this episode...and actually do like him and honestly think he has a shot...he's a good leader...I guess I just wish at the end he would have stepped up more but then again, as the lady said...editing editing editing...for all we know, he did...
