The contestants on Celebrity Apprentice must show their artistic sides when tasked with creating original, three-dimensional artwork. In the end, winning the task comes down to fundraising. Things heat up between Boardroom advisor, Piers Morgan and Omarosa Manigault who have traded insults before on the NBC reality TV series in the ultimate showdown. Plus, a shake-up among the contestants changes the dynamic of both teams!
The all-stars are all vying to win money for their charities. The 10 remaining celebrities include Marilu Henner, Brande Roderick, Stephen Baldwin, Lisa Rinna, Gary Busey, Omarosa Manigault, Penn Jillette, Trace Adkins, Dennis Rodman and Lil Jon. This week, the Boardroom Advisors are Piers Morgan, the 2008 Celebrity Apprentice winner and Eric Trump.
The all-stars must create original artwork and then tap into their personal and professional groups of friends looking for buyers. With the teams unbalanced, a reshuffling is responsible for moving Trace Adkins from Plan B to Team Power. Lil Jon is the Project Manager for Team Power which is now made up of Brande Roderick, Omarosa Manigault, Trace Adkins, and Dennis Rodman.
Meanwhile Lisa Rinna takes on the role of Project Manager for Plan B. Her fellow teammates include Marilu Henner, Penn Jillette, Gary Busey and Stephen Baldwin. After creating their artwork, the doors are open and both teams are ready for business. Some of the special guests include Chaz Dean and The Blue Man Group, who show up and make donations.
In the end under the leadership of Lisa Rinna, Plan B raises $225,000 while Team Power lead by Lil Jon brings in $179,000. The Donald announces that he will match the amount of money Lisa’s team raised and she will be able to present her charity, the St. Jude Children’s Hospital will a check for a little over $400,000. Now the fun really begins! Lil Jon said from the beginning of the task that he would bring back into the Boardroom the two members who raise the least amount of money to face Donald Trump. That would be Dennis Rodman and Omarosa. A Boardroom brawl breaks out between Dennis, Omarosa and Piers. Omarosa says she raised $2,000 more than Dennis Rodman therefore she has earned her place in the competition moving forward. Dennis created beautiful artwork including getting signed memorabilia by Derek Jeter which was very valuable for the team but didn’t bring in the bucks. Then, Piers Morgan voices his frustration with Omarosa being on the all-star season candidly saying, “You’re not a celebrity and you don’t have star power.”
After Dennis, Piers and Omarosa all talk over one another Donald Trump tells them to stop. Donald says he has seen a difference in Dennis Rodman from the previous season he competed on and that he wants to give Dennis the opportunity to continue on in competition. With that, Donald Trump fires Omarosa Manigault.
