The roommates are excited to find out that they get to compete in a window display contest as part of their job at Arista. They are split up into two teams. Rachel, Mike, Nicole, and Malik must build a display for Dido. Kevin, Coral, and Lori must create a display for Outkast. Each team gets to work with a BMG representative who will help them execute their ideas. Nicole comes up with an idea for her team and gets upset with Mike when he tries to give a suggestion. It is clear to the entire group that it is "Nicole's way or no way." Things get even worse after Nicole and Mike have a screaming match on the streets of New York, just because Mike took the van without telling Nicole. Nicole's attitude affects the team spirit and subsequently they lose to the Outkast team. Nicole tells Coral that she "is glad that her team lost." Everyone is pretty annoyed with Nicole at this point.
Meanwhile, there is a strange shift in the house. Coral and Mike are actually getting along! Mike has decided that he is going to act like himself for the rest of his time in New York, which includes playing around as his own Pro-Wrestling character, "The Miz." Coral's attitude towards "The Miz" is: "If you can't beat him, join him." She and Lori come up with their own female wrestling characters and take Mike head-on in a two-on-one wrestling match. Out of the blue, Nicole calls a house meeting. Realizing that her attitude is destructive, she asks forgiveness from all of the roommates. Everyone is impressed with her courage to open up and show her vulnerable side. The roommates end up in a group hug, which is a strange sight for this ensemble! Will this unity last? Tune in next week to find out. Also next week, Nicole is looking forward to a visit from a special boy from home.
