At the beginning of tonight’s regular double-episode of the new celebrity Apprentice, there are seven cast members still in the mix. Matt Iseman, Carson Kressley, Laila Ali, Lisa Leslie, Ricky Williams, Brooke Burke-Charvet and Boy George are all left to answer to Governor Swarzenegger.
The first challenge of the episode involved Steve Ballmer, the owner of the L.A. Clippers, and it was about creating a signature Clippers T-shirt and amping up the crowd. One team was Lisa, Boy George and Carson Kressley and they selected Lisa to be the project manager. On the opposite team, Ricky Williams was the project manager.
On Lisa’s team, they incorporate her rapping and Boy George singing. At the same time as Lisa is known for the WNBA, she hoped to bring something surprising to her presentation. Both teams did appear to have the same concept of being crazy, energetic and incorporating movement into their shows.
Ricky Williams’ team fell flat, according to Ballmer and Ballmer wasn’t a fan of them the usage of an idea of his for their presentation. They thought he would be flattered. in the end, Williams admitted that they were not creative enough as a team. He also stated that Laila Ali had felt under the weather and couldn’t carry as much energy as she could. Unfortunately for Williams, his team lost and this was his 2nd loss as a project manager. Williams was ultimately sent home.
However, the episode isn’t over just yet. There are another hour and another project, with the assist of guest adviser Leeza Gibbons….
Gibbons is a previous winner of the show and now she’s asking the cast members to create a sales pitch for workout equipment with a connection to QVC. The two project managers tonight include Brooke Burke-Charvet and Carson Kressley, each of whom is experienced with QVC. This makes it the third time that Kressley is a project manager.
On Brooke’s team, she and Ali were going to be the on-camera sellers with Iseman as the manufacturer. In the meantime, Leslie and Kressley had a distinction in opinion while it came to who should be on-camera. Ultimately, however, Kressley stuck with Boy George and himself with Leslie as the behind-the-scenes producer. One issue that Leeza Gibbons had was that Brooke’s team had a product that was expensive and had a 1-month delivery time. meanwhile, Kressley’s team had a price that was below $100.
Unluckily for Kressley, his team lost and Arnold Schwarzenegger thought it was such a failure that he decided to fire two people. Both Lisa Leslie and Carson Kressley had been terminated tonight.
