Following the intense and shocking boardroom decision from the most recent episode of “Celebrity Apprentice,” the remaining three challengers must face their final task together ... and it might just be their most difficult to date.
Only Vivica A. Fox, Geraldo Rivera and Leeza Gibbons are left in the Season 14 competition. Trump decided to fire Ian Ziering, Johnny Damon and Brandi Glanville in one fell swoop after the members of Team Infinity failed to come up with a good enough jingle for Bud Lite’s Lime-aritas.
With Season 14 rapidly drawing to a close, no one was surprised when it looked like Trump would send two of the three members of the losing team home. However, the show’s schedule (with only two weeks left) was completely disrupted by his call to fire everyone. In order to balance out the remaining airtime with the contestants, Trump will host a very special look back at some of the most outrageous moments from “Celebrity Apprentice’s” past seven seasons. In other words, NBC is going to run a clip show for the first hour of the two-hour time block to make up for the loss of an extra person.
It’s not all bad as many fans can probably watch the infamous Meatloaf freak out or anything Lisa Lampanelli did during their respective seasons. And it’s not like the show will be completely devoid of new drama. The second hour of “Celebrity Apprentice” this week will see Rivera, Gibbons and Fox make a trip to Universal Studios for their final task.
Unfortunately for the scrappy trio of survivors, their demons are coming back to haunt them in the form of six returning contestants. The group will have to sell resort vacation packages alongside their fallen teammates and, in some cases, rivals.
With only six of the 13 contestants that have been fired coming back, only one remains shrouded in mystery. NBC posted teaser photos from the upcoming episode that show returning Season 14 cast members Kevin Jonas, Ian Ziering, Johnny Damon, Brandi Glanville and Lorenzo Lamas. Only time will tell who Trump has waiting in the wings to stir the pot for the final three.
Once the task is complete, Trump will fire his second to last contestant of the season and bring the remaining two into next week’s big two-hour season finale. “Celebrity Apprentice” airs Monday nights on NBC at 8 p.m. EST.
