Celebrity Apprentice Recap

Celebrity Apprentice Recap: 'Technical Difficulties' Lead to Triple Termination

Last week, Carson Kressley got naked on The New Celebrity Apprentice. This week, he showed us his wand.

Following Monday’s first challenge — a marketing campaign for Lorissa’s Kitchen, which resulted in Vince Neil‘s termination — the remaining celebrities were tasked with creating a buzzy brochure for Universal Studios’ Wizarding World of Harry Potter. (Hence the wand I mentioned earlier. Come on, people, get your heads out of the gutter!)

But the magic-themed task, ahem, spelled disaster for Chael Sonnen, who was called on the carpet for purposely causing a power outage in order to buy his team an extra 10 minutes. (Yes, each team was allowed extra time for “technical difficulties,” but Chael’s fatal error was assuming that those difficulties could be self-induced.) “In my world, this is not a gray area, I will not tolerate cheating,” Arnold Schwarzenegger told Chael before firing terminating him on the spot.

The third celebrity fired this week was Porsha Williams, following the opposition’s victory in the Harry Potter challenge. (Honestly, I would have been shocked if Potter super-fan Matt Iseman didn’t win as project manager.) Carson sat in silence as Porsha and Lisa Leslie did battle in the boardroom, eventually chiming in on Porsha’s behalf, but it simply wasn’t enough to save her from a ride in the chopper.

    Vince threw himself under the bus. I wanted Lisa to go, very badly. Porsha’s number was up when she couldn’t give a simple answer to a simple question.

      Maybe Vince was just kind of done with it since he had already scored a huge amount of money for his charity. I wanted Chael to go out because of his extreme arrogance since Week 1…. glad I got my wish the next task when his lack of a sense of fair play got him busted for cheating.

  2. This show needs to just close shop.

      Yes, Randy! I agree. Everyone is almost too nice and calm on this show. The whole appeal of Celebrity Apprentice is villians and crazy drama. And there is really none of that this season. It’s just boring. I”d rather watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta. That’s trashy but entertaining!

      Why was Boy George allowed to not participate in the second task? I know he has other obligations, but so does everyone else on the show. I think if you don’t participate in every task you can’t be the winner of the contest. I don’t think it was fair to the other contestants. Maybe if he had been there, he’d be the one kicked off?

  3. Good Lord just pull the plug on this show.

    All the right people were fired on Monday night. Chael for cheating and Porsha was not much help i”m surprised she lasted this long and of course bad boy Vince. Great for Vince winning so much money for his charity the prior week, but his choice to have those women dancing on top of the container was worthy of termination. I really like Lisa, she is smart and very classy.
