I didn't see the first part of the show, because I was still watching AR, but if the two teams really were told that they should go for an emotional connection/response, then I can see why the women were especially disappointed that they lost. The men didn't follow that direction at all.
I'm also wondering if some people wouldn't find the men's commercial offensive, not because it used a gay couple declaring themselves engaged but because it made that the punch line of a joke. I mean, I'm not a gay guy, but I can see why that could be construed as making fun of committed gay relationships and/or coming out to family members. In fact, I was kind of surprised that Richard Hatch was fine with it. Sadly, John Rich probably also had a point when he said that he wasn't sure if that kind of commercial could be used effectively in all markets anyway.
I also thought showing how the phone could really serve the deaf community was a better selling point--if I depended on sign language to communicate, I'd rather use that phone than TDI. If they didn't have a commercial that reached out to that potential market, they really should.
I couldn't quite figure out why Star felt she had to make a point about Dionne giving up costing her charity--or why Dionne didn't go after her as much as NeNe when she left. I don't watch any of the Housewife shows, but I was surprised that NeNe seemed to do a decent job as a PM; she's also funnier in the confessional type pieces than I thought she would be.
Finally, is it just me or is anyone else wondering what kind of train wreck speech Gary might give in the car after he's fired?
