Celebrity Apprentice – The Control Freak V The Hands Off

“You’re a has been” said Didier Cohen, and smackdown by Warwick Capper when he responded and said “ You’re a never been.” Didier’s not insubstantial jaw hit the floor.

Warwick was back as a super sub to replace Lisa Curry on the girls team. Not a bad way to avoid elimination if you can get the producers to agree to it.  Clearly the producers wanted to bring back Capper as he is guaranteed to give good TV. Deni would have sulked, and Polly would have done the job just not with the Capper flare nor his range of Ed Hardy t-shirts.

The challenge for tonight was for both teams to put on a spring fashion parade that would best fit with what the editor of Grazia magazine, Kellie Hush, would put in the magazine.

Pauline Hanson was project manager,for the girls and immediately shifted all responsibility to Jesinta Campbell. I must say if Pauline is planning on staging a political comeback she is not showing great leadership qualities. Jason Coleman on the other hand was a complete control freak and kept on  repeating he had put on 464 shows this year. But Jason you are only as good as your last show.

Max also said seems to be genuflecting, he previously said he was bombastic but now he was listening. Or was he just putting a spin on it because he had been sidelined?

Ita Buttrose was a special guest to assist the teams with their shopping. Pauline Hanson had a major fan moment.

Ita was concerned that  Jason was not listening to any advice and because he was a big shopper he thought he had it under control.

Conversely Pauline did not have any input at all and as Julia Morris quipped “I’m going to be project manager if it all I have to do is get my hair and nails done and walk up the catwalk”.

Pauline on the morning of the show as not happy with her orange shoes they had picked her for. “Orange and red do not go together” she whined whilst having a prima donna moment.

Meanwhile Didier got his own back on Warwick when he wrote down the models he didn’t want on a piece of paper which Warwick copied, therefore Didier got all the models he wanted. Warwick is not real bright. Also I noticed the girls had written Warwick’s name on the order board as “Warrick”…

The judging panel were for the parade was Shelly Horton, fashion editor of the Sun-Herald, Kellie Hush and Emma Reed of Grazia and of course Ita Buttrose. Shelly thought Didier Cohen’s assets were not showcased enough, she would have liked to have seen a bit more skin. Maybe she needs to make the “naked” photo of the boys they did for the art show as her screen saver. However Shelly definitely gave the panel some energy.

The girls parade went for a straight fashion parade with a Palm Beach theme, and the boys was more theatrical with a spring racing carnival theme.

Deborah Thomas nailed it when she said Shane Crawford is smoking and should be dressed in something other than a jockey outfit.

It was all love in the air once the task had been completed however this changed as soon as they got into the board room.  Pauline said if they lost it would be Jesinta’s would be fault. However Jesinta and Julia hit back saying the Pauline really had not taken any responsibility with the challenge.

Jason Coleman was clearly feeling confident about the win as he didn’t lay the groundwork for knifing a team member. He said even though Didier had made a mistake he was still very good in the challenge, and admitted to giving Max Markson no responsibility.

When it was announced they were the losing team, you could metaphorically see the noose tightening around Jason’s neck. I will be very surprised if he is not fired.

With only 3 team members in the boardroom, Pauline is asked to name the weakest link and she nominates Jesinta, probably because she knew Julia would have dropped her if she’d named her. So Pauline named Jesinta for the wrong kind of weakness.

Obviously when they get down to 2, Mr Bouris will have to stop asking that question.

2 Leop { 11.08.11 at 12:06 pm }

Jason was too smug last night and so OTT with how many shows he’s choreo’d – sounds insecure……….

My jaw dropped when Pauline said Jesinta was weakest link; what? She did ALL the work and slightly perspiring Julia sans makeup but still came out with some good one-liners

Further observations –
why no bra Ms Hush – not a good look – in that dress
What was with Deborah’s Cabanosi necklace – no cheese?
Must say WaRRick and Mux (sic) did behave themselves
And Pauline please explain why red and orange don’t go; isn’t Block Colour all the rage now?

That’s always been a problem for Ms Hanson- colours not mixing.

4 sue { 11.08.11 at 12:29 pm }

how delusional and “small picture” is Pauline?????? Seriously- weakest team member by a country mile!!!!

& yes, tho’ I don’t mind Jason and he has been a great worker and team member thus far, the “choreographed 464 shows” ad nauseum was very offputting. I hope he stays tho as he makes a big difference to the team. I dislike Didier immensely (& that is b4 he speaks) so am happy for him to go, or Max, but I fear it may be Jason.

It’s a pity the girls won, in a way, otherwise maybe we could have seen the last of Pauline?!?! Altho “Mr Bouris” seems to favour her- I have no idea why!!!!

5 Georgie { 11.08.11 at 12:29 pm }

Well said bdd. She’s a typical politician – always look around for someone else to blame. Her other problem is, when her mouth opens her ears clap shut.

6 brain dead dave { 11.08.11 at 12:46 pm }

Jason with the 464 shows smoke blowing reminded me of Daffy Duck attempting to convince some hardened criminals that he could lay golden eggs.

Mr Bouris should be firing his stylist ……that facial tanning isn’t looking very real on this new TV.

7 Leop { 11.08.11 at 12:47 pm }

Very clever BDD – you are very sharp – good point (ex.pun)
Sue – from what Ive read Mr B favours Pauline due to her ‘honesty’

8 Isabel { 11.08.11 at 12:47 pm }

As old Victor Meldrew would say – “I can’t believe it!” Pauline was shocking and did nothing – I’d say it was thanks to Jecinta that they got through. As for red and orange don’t go together – what’s red? Certainly not Pauline’s hair, it’s orange, so orange shoes suit her very well. Pauline deserves to be sacked …………

What happened to Lisa Curry?

10 JStar { 11.08.11 at 2:11 pm }

Jason saying he choreographed 464 shows in 2011 thus far. I would say a lot of that number would go towards the Hairspray stage musical show which he choreographed from rehearsals to opening night – (obviously every subsequent performance is like another notch on the proverbial belt). Come on Jason. How about telling the audience how many different shows you have done this year?

Jason should be fired as he took it upon himself to control every single aspect of the process and marginalise everyone else. Live and die by the sword. Max, Shane, and Didier had nothing to do with the loss as the concept by Jason failed to impress the guest judge. I predict Jason will take Didier (Jason’s nominated strongest performer) and Max with him as a strategic way to show Mark that Max is the true weak link. Mark Bouris is too smart to fall for that (unless Max fails to shut his trap).

Pauline has already overstayed her welcome as she has proven to be a poor project manageress twice and ineffective team member(seriously, “Please Explain” is so 15 years ago). She has “survived” long enough to make the producers happy and will most likely be the next female fired.

11 Georgie { 11.08.11 at 2:20 pm }

All that posturing between Didier and Warwick seemed a bit ‘stage managed’ too. Reminded me of the way they carry on before the wrestling.

12 Andrea { 11.08.11 at 2:25 pm }

Yes I agree that pauline was wrong to blame Jesinta, she made her and Julia do practically everything when in fact Pauline herself should have done all the organizing and let jesinta do the modelling. I like Jason too but I did get sick of hearing about the 432 shows hes done as well. Lisa needs to have more confidence, I like her and want to see her doing more. Glad deni is gone! Sorry thats 464 shows!. Also its the voice of David Reyne behind the scenes.

13 Georgie { 11.08.11 at 2:27 pm }

TJY – Lisa had a prior engagment.

14 TJY { 11.08.11 at 2:32 pm }

Cheers Georgie!

15 Wurstsemmel { 11.08.11 at 2:48 pm }

Jason, he of the ‘4 hundred whatever’ shows….I thought I’d heard that line for the last time and then he spat it at Mr. B. I like him, but the likeability factor is going down as the ego rises.

Although he’s really good, as PM who CONTROLLED everything, he might have to cop a firing. Max didn’t do much but then I don’t think Jason was really wanting to have any competition.

But as it’s a double elimination……then…would have to say the jockey.

Pauline? It was all about ‘me’. ORANGE hair as someone said earlier..the only thing she was good at was making sure she got the hair do she wanted from Joh Bailey. Time to go.

-haha – good one and so true!!

Surprised the girls won actually as was certainly expecting Pauline to go home, she is such a “small picture” person I can’t believe she has actually got anywhere in politics at all. She basically did nothing but swan around last night. Jason at least worked hard although he is obviously a complete control freak. Previews for tonight show Max acting out and I am guessing he might go as he contributed little, although that wasn’t actually his fault as Jason didn’t delegate to him at all. Think Jason might dodge a bullet and Max will get it.

I’m just loving the dry wit of Julia. She is a very funny lady. Not sure why there is a ‘double elimination tonight? But hoping that Max and Didier go.

19 littlepetal { 11.08.11 at 5:28 pm }

464 shows. Does Jason counts each rehearsal as 1 show? Like the other poster said, did he also count each Hairspray stage musical performance as another show? It’s the same choreograph, they should only be consider as 1 show. What a brag. I like him initially, not now. Love Julia Morris. Very funny lady.

20 brain dead dave { 11.08.11 at 6:13 pm }

Maybe he’s confused and it’s 464 people that saw the shows……

Mal Markson:

23 Leop { 11.08.11 at 8:42 pm }

Agree George, Malicious nasty piece of work; so glad he is gone.
At least, Jason stood up to him and at least Didier did walk away with integrity; he’s done well to be where he is today and he is open about his past. What a total prat MM is –

24 ange { 11.08.11 at 9:37 pm }

What a terrible, horrible, humiliating thing to say on national TV. I’m not a great fan of Didier but that was undeserved and irrelevant to his performance. I have no respect for MM after this (and I am sure he has a few dirty secrets of his own he wouldn’t want getting out!)

25 Block Fan { 11.08.11 at 9:46 pm }

I thought that maybe deep down Max Markson was actually a clever guy with a very extrovert personality (aka attention deficit disorder) but he showed himesle tonight to be a prime class jerk, what a low blow – total creep.

26 smauge { 11.08.11 at 10:25 pm }

Does anybody else think Max has bumped a fair slice of coke over the years? Pot. Kettle. Black.
I hope this just highlights Didier’s charity even more. He’s come a long way and did not deserve to be laid out to slaughter on national television like that.
Didier will not be remembered as a “self confessed cocaine addict”, but Max Markson WILL be remembered as someone who resides somewhat below a snake’s belly. What a slime.

27 davsimp { 11.08.11 at 10:54 pm }

Yep, Jason shat everyone to tears when he kept banging on about how many shows he had done. Give it a rest already we heard you the first five times.

Give Wazza his due though. He came back, worked hard, and didn’t act the goat. To be honest they were lucky to have him.

Have been on team Pauline from the beginning, HOWEVER, to drop Jesinta in it like that, when the young girl worked really, really hard, was bang out of order. Yes, we thought it was very spirited of Pauline to wear the Aussie bum undies, and so cool of her to hang out with the drag queens, even though it was, in her own words, “really embarrassing” but she was in her element poncing around, getting glammed up and strutting up the catwalk, totally oblivious to the efforts of the others, namely Julia and Jesinta. If they had have lost, and she had not been fired, I would have been well pissed off. Showing your true colours now Mamma P.
