The Donald was back last night, with the latest installment of Celebrity Apprentice. For future reference, here is the complete cast list and the charities they are playing for. Last night to kick-off Season 5, the women’s team lost, sending Patricia Velasquez, Cheryl Tiegs, Victoria Gotti to the boardroom.
There’s only been one thing missing until now — the new cast!
Series boss Donald Trump made the mega announcement Wednesday. With 18 contestants battling it out for a $250,000 cash prize, the Celebrity Apprentice’s Season 5 roundup is the largest in the show’s history.
Check out the “big names” (using this term loosely) who will be going toe-to-toe for the top prize this season!
Donald Trump named country singer John Rich, 37, the winner of the competition tonight after he raised a staggering $275,000 for his charity in the final task. The competitive musician beat cash-strapped Oscar winner Marlee Matlin for the title, in what Trump described as “one of the closest” finals yet.
It looks like NeNe Leakes picked a good time to jump ship on Celebrity Apprentice. Sunday night’s broadcast of Donald Trump’s NBC reality challenge took a mayjah hit in the ratings on the heels of the continuing controversy over the business mogul’s role in the Obama “birther drama” and allegations that his criticism of the president’s performance is racially-motivated.
Only 7 million Reality Fanatics tuned in to watch the axe fall on spitfire Star Jones over the weekend. The episode was the lowest-rated spring telecast for the franchise, dipping 23 percent in viewership from just a week before.
We wonder if the Trump boycott led by advocacy group Color of Change has anything to do with this?
