The celebrities’ true colors come out tonight on this week’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice. With just six celebrities remaining in the reality TV competition airing on NBC the contestants actually turn on one another in an effort to win! Both teams implode during their tasks when Dayana Mendoza and Arsenio Hall take charge. Keep reading to find out what sparks the downward spiral!
All of the contestants are working to raise money and awareness for their charities. Each celebrity contestant on season 12 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 six business-savvy celebrity contestants are Aubrey O’Day, Arsenio Hall, Clay Aiken, Dayana Mendoza, Lisa Lampanelli and Teresa Giudice.
The task this week is to create a 90 second jingle for Good Sam’s Roadside Assistance program and to perform it in front of an audience. All season viewers have been hearing awful statements about Dayana, the beauty-queen. Basically, her team mates have been calling her “stupid” but she has escaped being fired week in and week out. Dayana’s biggest critic has been Lisa who loses it tonight while working on their task.
The drama begins for Team Forte–made up of Clay, Lisa and Dayana–as soon as Dayana takes charge as the Project Manager. The three try to decide what genre of music they will be using but need to help Dayana understand sounds from previous eras. Clay quickly loses his patience while helping Dayana and says he finally understands why everyone else has complained about her. After Dayana makes remarks about Clay’s singing, Clay says to the viewers that Dayana’s singing sucks so she shouldn’t tell him how to sing.
After deciding to do a 1960′s jingle the team members struggle with writing lyrics. Dayana tries to help but some of her suggestions aren’t received well by her other team mates. Dayana advises Lisa to be “cuter not so scary.” When Donald Trump Jr. shows up to check on the team, Dayana starts to tell him that Clay wrote the song and Lisa is loud. Lisa flips out saying how much she writes and works to help her team.
Later, Clay has a meltdown when Dayana asks him to stand on a different side of the stage. Clay says he can’t believe Dayana would tell him how to stage a number when he does it for a living. Finally, Team Forte pulls it together and executes their presentation which is a 1960′s radio broadcast with the Good Sam mascot.
Meanwhile, Team Unanimous–made up of Aubrey, Teresa and Arsenio–are dealing with their own issues. The Project Manager for this task is Arsenio. Their concept is to use a modern themed song for their jingle. While working on their concept, Donald Trump Jr. visits the group and Audrey pulls him aside to talk. She says she has done all of the creative work on her projects and totally throws Arsenio under the bus!
Team Unanimous presents a story of a couple whose car breaks down and decides to use their mobile app to get help. After doing that, the Good Sam mascot, a band and cheerleaders show up for a song and a dance. Shockingly, Teresa hasn’t been involved in much drama this season and says she is really worried this week because Arsenio and Aubrey have been fighting.
In the boardroom, the drama continues to unravel with both teams. Dayana says Lisa has a temper and is disrespectful. Lisa says simply that Dayana didn’t have the expertise to take on this task. Dayana tries to answer when Lisa continues to cut her off and Dayana tells Donald Trump that this is what she deals with. Lisa says she has a problem when people lie and tells Dayana she is ready to thrash out their differences anytime. Dayana says she can’t lead her team because they don’t respectful her. Then Aubrey buts in saying that, a leader should be able to lead anyone.
Donald Trump notes how interesting it is to watch Dayana sitting in the boardroom calm, cool and collective when Lisa is going crazy. Donald Trump reveals that the executives liked Arsenio’s presentation better therefore he will get $45,000 for his charity.
With Team Forte facing elimination Dayana, Lisa and Clay stay in the boardroom. With both Clay and Lisa saying Dayana should be fired, Donald Trump ultimately agrees and fires Dayana Mendoza.
