No matter who gets the partership-they're'-better-off-without, Ashley has won the show.
Scott... I have to wonder just how much shaving was going on there. Does his firm make the furniture themselves? Extra overcharge, because they can nail you on raw materials, manufacturing costs, labor... Forgetting just how many people were supposed to sit in the place may have been his way of driving the per-unit cost up. And then delivering damaged pieces (not injured in the rapper rampage) -- well, quality costs money, so why do you expect him to spend yours? And sure, someone should have been checking on his results. But that would have meant leaving the room -- and the Dolces were keeping the group too busy for frequent side trips.
There's a question of just how much sabotage is deliberate from the production side down, and there will continue to be one until someone forces Malin to lie on the stand. But this is the designer they wanted -- and so on some level, you'd think the results would be in the script too.
I still wouldn't be surprised by 'No one wins. Thanks for the cheap labor.' Unless, of course, the 'winner' has a lot of money for Malin to schedule dates with.
