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?
