With just three more episodes and nearly half the contestants remaining, Season 14 of “Celebrity Apprentice” is turning up the heat on its D-list celebrities vying to win money for charity. Now, fans have a small preview of what they can expect from the double elimination in Monday's episode 5.
Now that Shawn Johnson and Lorenzo Lamas are gone, each team is seriously lacking in manpower to get tasks done. According to the official episode description, the first project will see each team tasked with hosting an original boat tour of New York City. Following that competition’s firing, the remaining eight contestants will need to turn an empty platform stage into “a 3D environment featuring resort amenities.”
Last week's episode saw more arguments than any other this season. Brandi Glanville and Kenya Moore continued their feud, which has existed both in and outside the “Celebrity Apprentice” competition. The two have been exchanging backhanded insults all season, but this week Moore finally had enough and went for the kill shot in the boardroom, bringing up Glanville’s ex-husband. Ian Ziering lost his temper with Glanville when he stopped appreciating her criticism during edits for a commercial they worked on together. Meanwhile, Vivica A. Fox has made it clear that, if she has to gun for anyone, it’s going to be Kate Gosselin.
While these feuds took center stage last week, it looks like episode 5 will mostly star Capt. Sig Hansen. The “Deadliest Catch” star has remained almost completely under the radar this season, having never project-managed or really ruffled any feathers on Team Vortex or Infinity. In fact, his contribution to Season 14 thus far has been extraordinarily minimal. However, the preview for episode 5 teases that the sea captain simply can’t avoid being project manager on a challenge set on the water. Unfortunately, it looks like an unruly crew might just get the better of him. The preview shows him pounding his fist and yelling at his teammates.
Meanwhile, Moore’s team seems to be in danger of making an event “not classy” thanks to the “Real Housewives” star’s typical “party girl” lifestyle. It’s hard to tell before the episode 5 premiere just whose sins will be egregious enough to get the “you're fired” finger from Trump, but as the competition winds down, the stakes only increase.
“Celebrity Apprentice” Season 14 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
