The Apprentice Episode Guides
Immediately following the last task, Trump summons the teams back into the boardroom and one celebrity's rude comment leads to a quick firing. Next, the remaining celebrities undergo grueling interviews with the first 'Apprentice,' Bill Rancic, and the most recent 'Celebrity Apprentice,' Joan Rivers. Bill and Joan advice Mr. Trump on who should be fired and two more celebrities are sent home. The following morning, Mr. Trump reveals the last task to the finalists, which is to create a new flavor of Snapple tea, name the tea, and design its label. In addition, they must shoot a 30-second TV commercial and create a 3-page print ad promoting their new tea -- all of which will be presented at a launch event attended by Snapple employees and fans. The finalists each receive celebrity helpers and head into negotiations for ingredients when they quickly discover that both of them want the same ingredient. A strategic move wins the favorite flavor for one, but as they prepare to shoot their commercials, one finalist discovers that a key piece of equipment is missing, which may jeopardize the entire task.
Shooting with the Stars
The next task requires the contestants to create a 30-second television commercial and a 10-second internet commercial for a new Right Guard product. Holly is project manager for Tenacity, Curtis for RockSolid. For the ad spots, the teams get to use NBA legends Scottie Pippen and Clyde Drexler. Michael has to leave the competition for family reasons. RockSolid makes the better pitch to the Right Guard executives and wins a task for the second time. Selita is fired.
Donald Trump divides the celebrities into two teams: men ("RockSolid") versus women ("Tenacity"). The first task is for the teams to run a New York City diner, but the opposing team gets to pick the project manager. The men choose Cyndi Lauper for the women and the women choose Bret Michaels for the men. Tenacity brings in $39,559, RockSolid $57,905. Carol Leifer is fired.
With RockSolid heavily depleted, Donald Trump mixes up the teams, adding Curtis to Tenacity and giving RockSolid Maria and Sharon. The next task requires the teams to create and run a workout class at a 24 HR Fitness center. Sharon is project manager for RockSolid, Holly for Tenacity. Tenacity wins the task and raises the largest Apprentice donation ever. Donald Trump expresses his satisfaction with the work of the contestants and no one is fired.
The next task has the contestants preparing two up-and-coming country singers for a print interview and a live concert, with Trace Adkins providing supervision. Cyndi is project manager for Tenacity, Goldberg for RockSolid. Tenacity wins the task. Goldberg is fired.
Muggles and Wizards
The project managers - Rod for RockSolid, Selita for Tenacity - will be separated from their teams for the first time. On a private jet bound for Florida, Rod and Selita learn the next task: Create a three-dimensional interactive display for the new Harry Potter-themed attraction. A group of young Potter fans feel the women had the best display and Tenacity wins for the third straight task. Rod is fired.
Deep-Seated in Security
The task requires the teams to create a four-page advertorial for a new product from Norton 360 and LifeLock that could appear in Time Magazine or Time.com. Summer is project manager for Tenacity, Michael for RockSolid. Tenacity wins the task. Darryl is fired, but it turns out that he wanted to go home.
Give Me A Moment
The next task requires the contestants to create a Kodak storefront experience. Sinbad is project manager for RockSolid, Maria for Tenacity. The women do a better job showing off the Kodak products and earn $24,000 for Maria's charity. In the boardroom, Sinbad, Rod and Bret defend the performance of RockSolid. Sinbad is fired.
In the most difficult challenge yet, each team is tasked to renovate a two-bedroom corporate apartment to increase its market value--and they must do it overnight. Forced to accept a new member, one team is divided from the very beginning and one team's project manager tries to reign in the creative impulses of one team member. In the boardroom, a tactical error leads to a surprising firing.
Both teams are assigned the task of creating three radio commercials for Clockwork Home Services. To impress the executives, the teams must create original commercials for the company's plumbing, electrician and heating & air conditioning services, and one team may have pushed the envelope too far. Tempers flare when one celebrity questions another's ability to perform, but in the end, one team's commercial wins over the client, and Mr. Trump sends another celebrity packing.
