Who Was Fired on Celebrity Apprentice

Celebrity Apprentice: Were the Right Candidates Fired?

Kotu had a rough time on last night's episode of The Celebrity Apprentice. The team lost half its members between the two challenges, leaving only Joan Rivers and Clint Black (who haven't had the smoothest personal history on the show) to represent Kotu.

Natalie Gulbis was fired for her lack of fund-raising and for making poor decisions when selecting the jewelry for the runway show featuring Ivanka Trump's jewelry line. Joan Rivers was in tears when Donald Trump asked her to name someone on her team to be fired, so Trump broke it down clearly: Clint Black was terrible at his job as auctioneer, but his performance didn't directly contribute to the reason Kotu lost.

The second challenge leads to Herschel Walker's departure from the show. He was Kotu's project manager in making a new frozen meal for Schwan's and developing a marketing plan for it. The executives liked Athena's meal better, primarily because Kotu's dessert was complicated to assemble and their chicken dish didn't stand out from the other items the company already offers. Herschel was behind both ideas, so Donald fires him but not without apprehension and says, "I am not a gay man, and I love you Herschel. But Herschel, you're fired."

It is all about ratings. So he fires based on that. Herschel wasn't good tv and Natalie was boring as well. So people who bring personal issues into the boardroom and people who go ape-crap crazy on the phone make better tv.

Yes, neither have ever really stepped up to the plate and both were just boring to watch.

I think I want Jessie to win @ this point. I'm still upset about T-Boz & Khloe getting fired :rant:

i sort of do think that the right folks were fired. remember that it's about ratings at this point, keeping an audience through the final weeks - so they needed to have melissa/joan and annie until the last possible moment.
