Celebrity Apprentice

Celebrity Apprentice: Was the Right Candidate Fired?

The challenge on last night's Celebrity Apprentice was for the teams to design in-store displays for an identity-theft-protection company, and the episode was pretty uneventful until more than halfway through the two-hour show.

Brian McKnight is the project manager for Athena, and he does a great job with the presentation. The executives thought the team's display hit brand messaging, but it was a spin on what they already had done. Natalie Gulbis is Kotu's project manager and the executives liked the use of celebrities to promote the product but didn't like that the display couldn't hold the item for sale. Kotu is chosen as the winner for the challenge because its concept was more original than Athena's, and Brian chooses Brande Roderick and Melissa Rivers to face Donald Trump in the boardroom.

The only drama occurs an hour into the show, when Joan throws her wine glass and breaks it because she's angry Melissa is in the boardroom. Annie Duke had told Joan the night before that Brande should go home but then said nothing to Trump, so Joan calls Annie a snake. After Brian is fired for being the project manager of the losing team, both teams are called back into the boardroom to immediately begin their next task.

Next week should provide a lot of drama with Joan and Annie going head-to-head as project managers and Piers Morgan returning to keep an eye on things. But what did you think of the way the boardroom went down this week? Did The Donald make the right decision?

I like how mature Brian is. He is very respectful and took the blame for the fall since he was the team leader.

Brian was the correct person to go home, Although I would love to see melissa and her equally freaky mom go soon. they frighten me.

I have to say that while Brandi wasn't that helpful, Brian should have been watching her. Ultimately his poor time management and inability to get his team thinking creatively is the reason that they lost.

i actually think that it was the right choice to send brian home. his heart wasn't in the game this time. what really peeves me though is that he still had to talk about khloe at the beginning of the show- and i think that he's being wrong about it. yes she made a mistake but that has ZERO relevance to the apprentice.

Yes and no. Yes for the fact that Brian no longer has the drive to stay around, No because Brande was rather useless during the task.
