And then there were five! It’s almost time for a new star to be named the 2013 Celebrity Apprentice on the NBC hit reality TV show. The remaining celebrities are tasked with designing Foxwoods Resort themed suites and host parties at the brand-new Barclays Center. One team struggles with finding entertainment while the other team’s entertainment might not make it due to weather. The Boardroom advisors are 2011 Celebrity Apprentice winner, John Rich; and Donald Trump Jr. plus Lisa Lampanelli, Hunter Hayes, Teller, David Burke and LuAnn de Lesseps make special appearances!
The all-stars are all vying to win money for their charities. The five remaining celebrities include Marilu Henner, Lisa Rinna, Penn Jillette, Trace Adkins and Lil Jon.
Both teams must design Foxwoods Resort themed suites and host parties at the brand-new Barclays Center for VIP’s and Foxwoods executives.
Marilu Henner steps up as Project Manager for Team Power leading Trace Adkins and Lil Jon. The team decides to go with a “king” theme however they struggle to find entertainment since a bad snow storm has hit New York. Trace tries to get Dolly Parton, Lil Jon tries to get equipment to DJ the party but both ideas never come to fruition. At one point, Trace says to Lil Jon, “We’ve got the party planner from hell” referencing Marilu! In the end, Trace is able to get the CMA New Artist of the Year winner, Hunter Hayes to appear and perform.
Meanwhile, Lisa Rinna leads Penn Jillette on Team Plan B. For these two stars its quality over quantity. They decide to throw a “joker” themed party. They bring in celebrity chef, David Burke; comediene, Lisa Lampanelli, and Penn & Teller who perform magic tricks.
In the boardroom, John Rich asks Team Power why since Lil Jon is known in the rap world as the “King of Crunk” that Lil Jon didn’t perform? Marilu says she thought Lil Jon was going to but Lil Jon explains that he said he would try to be ready but couldn’t get equipment. The two begin to bicker over the point.
Donald Trump announces that the Foxwoods executives loved Team Plan B’s concept therefore Lisa Rinna wins $100,000 for her charity, the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
Things get heated in the boardroom when Donald Trump talks to Marilu Henner, Trace Adkins and Lil Jon. Marilu bluntly reveals that she believes Trace should be fired claiming that he has given up on his team. The Donald says that Marilu Henner was the project manager and was ultimately in charge of everything from the theme to the decor and even the entertainment so he fires her.
