Celebrity Apprentice Recap

Celebrity Apprentice Recap: Commercial Failure

Monday’s Celebrity Apprentice required the contestants to sell themselves… while selling each other out.

Following Ricky Williams‘ termination in the first hour — like previous contestants, Arnold Schwarzenegger felt that the NFL running back wasn’t defending himself strongly enough to merit sticking around — the remaining stars were tasked with selling exercise equipment on QVC.

Both teams thought they crushed the competition — Prima was proud of Boy George’s weight-loss testimony, while Arete relied on the salesmanship of Brooke Burke and Laila Ali — but as always, the boardroom brought its share of rude awakenings. And I’m not just talking about Arnold awkwardly telling Lisa Leslie, “You look so good for your age.” (Honestly, I got major flashbacks of the days You-Know-Who hosted this mess, and I did not like it.)

After it was revealed that Arete sold nearly twice as many units as Prima, guest advisor Leeza Gibbons unleashed the beast — though her wrath paled in comparison to Arnold, who fired Lisa and project manager Carson Kressley. (For those of you keeping score, that’s the second triple elimination in a row. This show is not messing around anymore.)

    Matt Iseman has been the best from the very beginning with Carson Kressley the second best in my opinion. I think the final 2 should be matt and Laila Ali.

      Aah! But if you paid attention to the preview, they are a team against Boy and Brooke… so that means Boy and Brooke would both have to go home, a scenario I don’t see happening… one player from each team will go home is the more likely outcome

    my favorite is carson by far simply given his charisma and wit. he is the most interesting personality on the show and thus affects viewership. my opinion that it is an error on side of numbers to have terminated carson although the ‘game decision’ per de makes sense. after all this is simply a television show wherein the ultimate objective is entertainment.
