Trace has figured out how to manipulate the game. He knows that at this point, there are few enough people that if the big idea fails, the PM will go home. So when he's not PM, he gives no effort so he can't get blamed for anything, and if his team loses, the PM will go home. If there were more people still on the team, they'd see it, call him out on it, and he'd go home. With so few people, no one is going to speak up, and he stays safe.
Atkins would have been fired in the real-world for creating a hostile work environment with his lewd talk. I hate it when guys talk about women crudely to other guys when women are around as if they aren't even in the room.
Sometimes Trace is all hat and no cattle.
"A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment." -- Jane Austen

The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.
I forgot to say that I thought Teller was the real hero in this episode. He went thru a lot of trouble and inconvenience just to help Penn.
That really made me admire him and it appears to me that these two have a great relationship....it seems that partners/band members, etc often have problems keeping the relationship once stardom enters the picture.
