Sunday’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” was quite literally a game-changer.
For the first time this season, the competitors faced two challenges – and the male-female teams became co-ed for the second task.
With the winning team determined based on the amount of money raised, most of the contestants focused on soliciting donations from celeb pals and strangers alike.
Surprise judge Regis Philbin declared the females’ book the best, giving them an extra $35,000 to add onto the total amount they raised.
And yet, by a margin of just $14, the men managed to outdo the women (for the fifth time out of seven), leaving the gals to squabble over where they went wrong.
The remaining competitors were shocked when Donald Trump announced he was mixing up the teams prior to the second challenge, where they had to create a presentation to promote the Walk with Walgreens program, which encourages wellness through the company’s rewards program.
Fitness fanatic Lou Ferrigno stepped up to lead the new team Forte, while Hall became project manager – for the first time – for the new Unanimous.
Ferrigno’s motivation-focused presentation was well-received, even after Penn Jillette mistakenly said “Walmart,” while Hall’s game show-themed approach also went over well – and scored his team the win.
Ferrigno placed his team’s failure on Mendoza and Dee Snider, bringing them back to the boardroom.
Trump ultimately opted Snider, since the team’s biggest weakness was the rocker’s branding.
