Her failed side-deal was also condemned in the boardroom review, but she dodged elimination after project Michelle Niziol did not bring her back for the final boardroom. In the next task, Cunningham became project manager due to her background in fashion, but poorly led her team and created a confusing advertisement campaign, which resulted in their loss.
While she was given credit for giving a good presentation in the task, Cunningham still earned considerable criticism for her losing her composure and being unable to control her emotions.

In the sixth task, Jeffrey did not step up to be project manager despite promising to do so the previous weekand did not ensure that her delegated items were at the supermarket she phoned.
