Celebrity Apprentice returns with its biggest competition ever, when 18 celebrities - musicians, comedians, movie stars and more - go head to head.
The teams produce and perform a medieval-theme show for an audience, yet an insubordinate contestant and a serious injury mar the task.
The star players rev up to produce a live event spotlighting a new Buick vehicle, but one team is in danger of stalling out when the choice for project manager is questioned. Meanwhile, a deep division develops in the other team.
The celebrity players are assigned to write and produce a viral video promoting a mop. It's risqué business when one team hatches a lusty concept. Meanwhile, serious divisions mar the other team.
The Celebrities' hosting skills are put to the test when Mr. Trump tasks the teams with putting on a party to promote Crystal Light. One team creates the ultimate beach experience, complete with beach balls and bikini babes, while the other team creates an exotic Garden of Eden. The executives have a difficult decision on their hands, but one team emerges victorious and Donald Trump fires another celebrity. Boardroom advisors: Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. Special guests Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.
The teams take on two tasks, and two Celebrities are fired. It all begins when Mr. Trump tasks the teams with creating and selling a Celebrity guidebook on New York City. With a big bonus on the line, special guest Regis Philbin judges the teams' books. Despite the added incentive, one Project Manager neglects the quality of their book, while the other team struggles just to get theirs completed in time. An explosive boardroom leads to another Celebrity being fired. The evening continues, as the teams create an interactive health segment for Walgreens. Before the Celebrities can even begin their task, Mr. Trump switches up the teams. One Project Manager struggles to maintain control of an insubordinate teammate, while the other team tries to complete the task with a Celebrity missing. Before anyone is even fired, Mr. Trump witnesses one of the season's biggest Boardroom battles, resulting in one Celebrity going AWOL.
Still reeling from last week's dramatic Boardroom, one Celebrity goes on an emotional tirade against a teammate. With the whereabouts of an AWOL Celebrity still unknown, a verbal firestorm ignites. For their task, teams must write, produce, and direct a 60-second commercial for Entertainment.com. In the end, one team hits the mark, and the other team is left to fight it out in the boardroom, where another celebrity is sent packing. Boardroom advisors: Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. Special guest Magic Johnson.
This week, the teams must create their own puppets and perform in front of a live audience for Henson Alternative's "Stuffed and Unstrung" improv show. One outspoken Celebrity struggles to be a team player. On the other team, another Celebrity fights for a role in the task, but is marginalized and has a breakdown. Both teams put their improvisational skills to the test, but only one is declared the winner and another Celebrity hears Donald Trump's dreaded words, "You're fired!"
Donald Trump invites the celebrities to his luxurious penthouse apartment, where he gives them their next task, to create an in-store display for his new fragrance, "Success." A rematch between two sparring Project Managers ensues, as they compete to win $100,000 for their charities. One team worries about an indecisive leader. The other team's Project Manager sells out their team to Eric Trump. In the end, The Donald fires another celebrity.
The teams are tasked with writing and performing a new jingle for Good Sam. It's deja vu for one team, whose Project Manager struggles with a power-usurping teammate. On the other team, a mutiny results in some of the season's biggest fireworks when the team hijacks the task away from the Project Manager. It all comes down to the performances, and the celebrities must sing their hearts out to get the win. In the Boardroom, one team is declared the victor, and Mr. Trump sends another celebrity packing. Boardroom advisors: Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.
The remaining five celebrities embark on their penultimate task, to create a print ad campaign for the new "CHI Touch" Digital Touchscreen Hair Dryer. With nothing left to lose, both teams go all out, but in completely different directions. The executives pick their winner, and Donald Trump fires another celebrity. Their victory is short lived, when the Final Four are summoned back to the Boardroom, where Mr. Trump sends them to the most important job interview of their lives. Returning Celebrity Apprentice, John Rich, and runner up, Marlee Matlin grill the celebrities and make their recommendations to Donald Trump, who is left with a difficult decision: who will be the final two.
The two finalists must embark on the biggest task yet. They must create, host, and sell tickets to a celebrity charity event, featuring a charity awareness ad and a variety show, starring none other than themselves. With eight celebrities returning to help them, the two finalists must rely on everything they've learned all season to win the ultimate prize: $250,000 for their charity, and the title of The Celebrity Apprentice. With time running out, one finalist finds they don't have the footage needed to edit their charity awareness ad, while the other finalist goes head to head with a returning celebrity.
Live from New York City, it's The Celebrity Apprentice season finale. The finalists scramble to finish in time for their celebrity charity event, and for the first time ever, the two finalists must work together to make sure their variety show goes off without a hitch. With 10 Celebrities performing, it's the biggest finale event to date. In the end, Donald Trump makes his final decision, live who will be fired, and who will become The Celebrity Apprentice.
