The Celebrity Apprentice Season Two All Viral Videos

Celebrity Apprentice: Were the Right Candidates Fired?

With only four men left in the running to become The Celebrity Apprentice, Donald Trump opened last night's episode by mixing up the teams and creating new co-ed versions of Kotu and Athena. The teams are challenged to create viral online videos for All laundry detergent, and Perez Hilton makes a remote appearance to judge the projects on originality, buzzworthiness, and branding.

While the Athena team has high hopes for their video that was loved by Perez, the All executives found both videos offensive and ineffective to their target demographic. Neither team is declared winner of the viral video challenge and Trump asks the project managers to each choose two people to keep in the boardroom; the teams are shocked to learn that two candidates will be fired.

First, Tionne Watkins is fired for the sole reason that she volunteered to go to the boardroom when project manager Melissa Rivers asked who would stand by her if the situation arose. Trump tells Melissa she would have been fired had Tionne not volunteered. Then, Khloe Kardashian is fired from Kotu (Clint Black was the team's project manager) because she has a DUI that Trump didn't know about before and he can't stand people who drink and drive.

Neither decision seems to be based on the challenge at hand, but do you think he made the right choices?

If she had killed someone, it should follow her around for life, because she didnt, thank goodness, she should have some residual humiliation to deal with, which includes not being on a show that gives her rewards.

He was VERY wrong. Clint was completely responsible for this horrible video and Khloe, no matter what she has done should not have gone home. Trump is no role model himself. As for T-Boz, no one on that team should have been fired and unfortunately it should have been Melissa who went home. She was the PM on the task. I'm disgusted.

Why should Khloe have been humiliated? That is ridiculous. If all of our past mistakes, be they small or as large as drunk driving, followed us around for the rest of our lives, then I know I would be miserable! The law has punished Khole for her DUI, it is not Trumps responsibility to punish her AGAIN. Did it happen two years ago? That is slightly recent, but how long should that follow her around in unrelated situations. While I also am totally against drunk driving, and also believe there is no excuse--Khole wasn't trying to make excuses--just move on. If she is not allowed to move on then how can she ever grow and/or learn from her mistakes? Trump really had no right to bring that in, he never questioned where Joan was when she missed one day of two different tasks. He was completely wrong for firing both.

I'm with CaterpillarGirl---there's NO excuse, EVER, for driving drunk. EVER. Get a cab or have a friend drive you home. Good for the Donald for firing Khloe; it's about time someone stood up to these snobby, overpriveleged celebutantes that treat a DUI like a speeding ticket.

btw Khloe should be humiliated, she knew what she did was wrong and still got behind a wheel, I have no tolerance for drunk drivers and lost all respect for her when she did that. Obviously Trump has a history with MADD and didnt want someone on the show who is the epitome of "bad choices"

Donald is a business man, who is ...well...busy, He probably didnt know about Khloes DUI Because he doesnt read the gossip mags or watches E! too much. I totally agree with firing her, not only because she is a poor role model, but because she really didnt do anything on the show. as for T-Boz, someone had to go, and melissa was the leader who did nothing wrong, brande was just "there" and T-boz volunteered!! which we all know...is a No-No. IF someone has a one in 6 chance of being fired possibly, you dont freaking volunteer! You fight to stay and Trump saw that as a weakness....which it was.

i havent watched it yet, but these seemed like silly reasons to fire a possible candidate.

NO NO NO NO NO i've lost a LOT of respect for Donald Trump because of what he did last night to Khloe. i think that he was taking something that wasn't at all related to the show and making it an issue. If his kids didn't live such a priveledged life - i'm sure that they would have been in situations where they could have had DUIs. they have drivers and therefore aren't forced to be AS responsible. Khloe's paid for what she did and for him to humiliate her for trying to right the wrong...that was more than i could take. as for tionne - well that was a lesson that we've learned in past years - so as much as i feel bad about that one - i'm really not surprised.

No, neither one of them should have been fired. Especially not T-Boz! That was just ridiculous. I think Trump was just in a bad mood all around that day [no new toupee?]. What I want to know is how DONALD TRUMP, who seems to be everywhere in everything, had absolutely no idea about Khloe's DUI? That was *all over* TV, internet, and radio - it was sort of big in terms of reality TV. Even so, she's paying the price for it now, and she hasn't done it again since then [as far as I know]. Thank goodness she got caught before she hurt or killed someone. But it wasn't a reason to FIRE her from the show.
