Episode 12 preview & spoiler
The final five candidates are challenged to create an in-store home theater display at Wal-Mart for customers to demo the Microsoft Xbox 360 videogame console. The display will highlight the game system's features, within a fully accessorized environment, for the digital entertainment lifestyle. The teams are challenged to demonstrate the Xbox 360 as a complete home entertainment system for non-gamers, featuring a DVD player, stereo system, slide show, video console and more. The team to build the most compelling promotion, as judged by Microsoft and Wal-Mart executives, wins the task.
The winners take a private jet to Hollywood to meet Jeffrey Katzenberg of DreamWorks Animation Studios. The studio executive coaches them through a voice-over session for the new animated film Over the Hedge, starring Bruce Willis, Garry Shandling and Steve Carell. Other voices in the movie include Nick Nolte, Avril Lavigne and William Shatner. Sean Yazbeck provides the voice for BBQ Barry and Lee Bienstock provides the vocals for Lunch Table Larry.
(Thanks to aeropostale676 at Survivor Sucks for finding the spoiler and to Walt/Wallyhorse who first brought this spoiler to our attention.)
The losers face the boardroom where one candidate will be fired.
Microsoft posted some rather bizarre interviews on Xbox.com, asking fired candidates Brent Buckman and (Jose) Pepi Diaz about the Walmart / Xbox 360 task. Brent answered each task question with "I don't know." Pepi actually answered a couple questions, but he also threw in one "I don't know." How bizarre!
In case you missed the hints up above, Lee is in the Final Four!
Previews for Episode 13 and the finale were posted last week.
