Week 10 on Celebrity Apprentice
On a supersized episode of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” Donald Trump whittled down the contestants to get his final four.
The show began with some team shuffling, with NeNe Leakes and Meat Loaf switching teams. But NeNe thought Donald was being too accommodating to Star Jones, who didn’t want to work with NeNe, so she chose to quit instead. Never one to give up the last word, Trump proclaimed that he was firing NeNe for being a quitter. As for the actual task, La Toya Jackson’s team Backbone lost, leaving her to set another “Apprentice” record.
In the first task, both teams were charged with organizing, hosting and selling tickets to a live comedy show. Meat Loaf and team A.S.A.P. got some help from Tracy Morgan, and eventually brought in more than 102-thousand dollars for The Painted Turtle camp for terminally ill children. John Rich brought in his friend Jimmy Fallon, but it wasn’t enough to give Backbone the win. In the boardroom, Trump fired La Toya after she said that neither Rich or Lil Jon deserved to go home.
In the second task, Rich faced off with Marlee Matlin again to see who could create the best promotional video for OnStar. Rich and Lil Jon — calling themselves “The Jonz” — came out on top, sending Marlee, Star and Meat Loaf to the boardroom this time. Marlee and Star both blamed Meat Loaf’s improvisational style for the loss. Trump said he liked all three of them, but placed the blame for the loss on Star and fired her.
On the next “Celebrity Apprentice,” Trump gets help from past winners Piers Morgan, Bret Michaels and Joan Rivers to pick his final two. See who makes the cut next Sunday at 9:00 p.m. Eastern on NBC.
