We’re getting down to the nitty-gritty, people. Five contestants walked into tonight’s episode of The Celebrity Apprentice, but only three walked out…which is to say that they were safe and two others were fired. Soooooo I guess technically they were the ones walking out seeing as they were fired and all. Ugh! Why did I make this so confusing?!? Sorry about that. Anyhoo, my full recap will be up at 2am (UPDATE: Click to read Dalton’s full Celebrity Apprentice recap), but if you can’t wait to sound off on what happened and who was fired, then read on for more. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s episode of The Celebrity Apprentice.]
Tasked with creating a four-page ad extolling the virtues of a hair dryer, the teams spent most of their time arguing over models and encouraging the sexual advances of red cowboy-boot-wearing CEO Farouk Shami. After she was outmaneuvered in her model negotiations by Lisa Lampanelli, and then allowed every single decision to be made by Aubrey O’Day, Unanimous Project Manager Teresa Giudice was fired. She was even told by Trump, “You know, as a Project Manager, you are a liability. You do understand that?” (Ouch!)
That left four contestants to be grilled by last year’s final two, John Rich and Marlee Matlin (with the glorious assistance of everyone’s favorite sign language interpreter, Jack Jason). It was during said grilling that Aubrey O’Day informed us of all the fantastic charitable work she has done alongside her BFF Fidel Castro, and no, I am not making that up.
Trump then brought the final four back to the Boardroom and fired Lisa, who took the news with a shocking amount of class and dignity. Trump was then getting ready to fire someone else, when the three worst words ever graced the screen: To Be Continued.
My recap will be up soon, but you can sound off right here and right now. Do you agree with the firings? Who do you think is next to go? And how pimpin’ is my man Farouk Shami? Hit the message boards to let us know, and for more reality ramblings, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
