After last week’s explosive boardroom brawl, the women’s team is completely divided! This week, on The Celebrity Apprentice, both teams have to throw a mocktail party for a famous non-alcoholic drink brand. Can the women pull it together and get a win or will the men rack up yet another victory on the NBC reality TV show? Keep reading to find out!
All of the contestants are working to raise money and awareness for their charities. Each celebrity contestant on season 12 of the reality TV competition is fighting to be hired as The Celebrity Apprentice. The last one standing will have the honor of delivering a $250,000 bonus check to their charity. The remaining 12 business-savvy celebrity contestants are Aubrey O’Day, Arsenio Hall, Clay Aiken, Dayana Mendoza, Debbie Gibson, Dee Snider, Lisa Lampanelli, Lou Ferrigno, Patricia Velasquez, Paul Teutul Sr., Penn Jillette and Teresa Giudice.
Since the men’s team won last week’s task and Lou Ferrigno was the Project Manager he has the chance to present a $50,000 check this week to Abby who is an advocate for Muscular Dystrophy and also suffers from the disease. She is quite an inspiration and Lou becomes emotional during the meeting, telling her that he is so happy to have the opportunity to help the charity.
This week’s challenge is for each team to host a “Mocktail” party to launch Crystal Light’s new drink.
Team Forte is made up of the women and Aubrey O’Day is the Project Manager for this task. Their drink flavor is pomtini. Their concept is to embrace the story of Adam and Eve from the Bible and instead of the “forbidden” fruit being an apple–this time the fruit is the pomtini mocktail and is actually good for you. The theme for their party is a modern oasis. With waterfalls in the room and original artwork on the walls, the room looks very classy.
Team Unanimous includes the men and Clay Aiken is the Project Manager this week. Their drink flavor is Peach Bellini. Clay comes up with the idea, “Life is a Peach” as a takeoff of “Life is a Beach.” For the party, the guys decide to use a beach theme with sand, beach balls, beach chairs, umbrellas and even encourage their friends to where swimsuits.
Team Unanimous hosted the better mocktail party and wins this week’s task. Both teams were in shock–the men because they couldn’t believe they won and the women because they couldn’t believe they lost! Clay receives $50,000 for his charity. The men leave the boardroom and Donald asks the women what went wrong and they themselves are baffled. All of the women also struggle with picking who they think Donald Trump should fire. The women even explain that this is the first time they all worked well together. Donald Trump asks Aubrey who she wants to bring into the boardroom and she picks Patricia and Dayana.
In the boardroom, Patricia and Dayana say Aubrey is at fault and Aubrey says Patricia made the mistake in the graphics. In the end, Donald Trump fires Patricia Velasquez.
