Celebrity Apprentice USA – Is There Anyone Not Bringing The Crazy?

The one thing the celebrities on Celebrity Apprentice USA have over the Australian version is that they are not afraid of conflict and they don’t contain their crazy or egos.

Last night the female teams were going at each other like a pack of hyenas. The challenge was for the teams to make a booklet showcasing what the attractions of New York City. As usual the team who raised the most money wins and the other team has to face Trump in the board room.

Theresa from Real Housewives New Jersey who really is not the sharpest tool in the shed was Project Manager, however comedian Lisa Lampanelli really did most of the grunt work, so it was no surprise she cracked it at one stage yelling at Miss Universe  about getting some skills so she can be judged on that rather than her looks.

Dayana is completely vacuous and because she manages to bring in cheques from friends and has the Trump/Miss Universe connection she manages to stay in the game. Aubrey O’Day is a cracker, never heard of her before but she is feisty and also a hard worker. Her and Lisa have formed an alliance, though Debbie Gibson was in it for a short time.

Debbie Gibson who was girl next door and ’80’s pop icon appears to still have a love of ’80’s lycra. Even Theresa queried whether she was dressed appropriately but maybe Debbie was trying to invoke the old time seedy atmosphere of Time Square.

I quite like Debbie as she is very different to what I thought she was going to be. She is slightly arrogant and bitchy, but also quite smart, well smarter than most there.

The girls did shots of places they liked to visit, whereas the guys just took shots from the top of Trump Tower showcasing neighbourhoods of the city.

The guys book looked fairly amateur hour and if you want a closer a look at it go here. They also created a melee when the Blue Group pumped money into the air. Needless to say not all that money was collected and Clay Aitken was injured in the mosh pit that occurred. He was pissed off at Penn the magician that organised it all. In fact they lost $4000 of the $8000.

However other then that the real action was occurring in the female team. Aubrey was criticised for not making as much money as them. Theresa was waiting on her husband Joe to bring her some cheques. However I would have wanted to ensure those cheques did not bounce.

Once they were in the board room it was revealed the losing team had only lost by $14. It was the men that won. Therese took Dayana, and Debbie Gibson back into the board room with her, and because Dayana is a protected species due to the Miss Universe connections it was Debbie who was fired.

This was a double episode so there was a whole other task which ended with Aubrey walking out even though she was on the winning team. She’s such an attention seeker i’m sure she’ll be back. Debbie Gibson was fired because she raised the least money out of the 3 people in the final boardroom, and it was a fundraising task. I actually think Dayana has a lot to contribute but is constantly talked over by the more assertive members of the team. The men didn’t have a problem with her when she was on their team – I know she’s gorgeous which may have helped, but Aubrey isn’t unattractive either (and has posed for Playboy) but they didn’t like her because of her overbearing personality. I’m enjoying the series – there are certainly a lot more out-there personalities and conflicts than the Aussie version!

Aubrey is a machine gun mouth. Has already dropped hints at the board room about being available to become a member of the Trump family, Maybe after her walk out she headed to one of Trumps sons appartments for therapy.
