She would have most likely been fired had Kinetic lost. Although Haya attempted to pin much of the blame on Harry M.
Haya was considered the person most at fault for the failure of the task, due to her insistence on selling the pie maker along with her failure to control Lewis. She was ultimately saved by her generally impressive track record throughout the competition.
Haya's loss as Project Manager made this the only occasion in the series that she was on a losing team.

Atomic were originally going to go for the puzzle game, but James came up with an office-based game, and despite the market research finding that more people would play the puzzle game, James decided to stick with the office game, calling it "Crazy Cabinet".
