The Celebrity Apprentice Season Premiere Recap

| March 14, 2010 at 11:00 PM EDT

Donald Trump is back and ready to fire as the third installment of The Celebrity Apprenticebegins.  We have another all star cast ready to make some money for their various charities.  For the guys we have Darryl Strawberry, Bret Michaels, Bill Goldberg, Michael Johnson, Rod Blagojevich, Sinbad and Curtis Stone.  The women include: Cyndi Lauper, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Selita Ebanks, Maria Kanellis, Carol Leifer and Summer Sanders.  To learn more about the contestants and the charities they are playing for visit the website at nbc.com

Trump meets the new contestants in the Grand Central Terminal in NY and divides them into teams of male and female.  He tells them to choose a name and pick the project manager for the other team.  He also gives out the first assignment of running a diner.  The women choose the name Tenacity and the men choose RockSolid.  Cyndi Lauper is the project manager for the women and Bret Michaels for the men. 

The Task:  Both teams will run a diner which entails cooking the food, waiting on tables, busing tables, planning the menu and bringing in business.  The guys seem to have a distinct advantage with Celebrity Chef Curtis Stone on their side.

The teams ran their diners very differently with the men serving $100 burgers and $250 risotto with truffles while the women stuck with a $25 menu.  Both teams did a great job making their phone calls and drumming up some high rollers for the competition.  Trump call in last year’s winner Joan Rivers to visit both diners and give her opinion on who had the best food.  Whomever she chooses will get to add $10,000 to their final amount.

The Boardroom:  Joan chose the women to win the additional money and even with that they were far short of the men.  They made $39,000 to the guys $57,000.  Donald rounded up to a nice $100,000 for Bret Michael’s charity, American Diabetes Foundation. 

Donald got a little upset with the women because they wouldn’t tell him who should be fired or throw anyone under the bus so he had to do a little cussing to convince them to speak up.  In the end Comedian Carol Leifer heard the dreaded words, “You’re Fired.”

Do you think the women made a wise decision with this move?

The Amazing Race 16: Episode 5 Recap

| March 14, 2010 at 9:24 PM EDT

This episode of The Amazing Race begins with teams taking a bus from Germany to an undetermined place in France.  Jeff and Jordan came in last place at a non elimination leg last week and have to do an extra speed bump in order to complete this part of the race.

The detectives set out first and remain in the lead the entire way.  Each team must drive to a bakery and buy a baguette which has a clue inside telling them to go to what is probably the craziest Detour ever.  A mock World War I battlefield is the setting for this contest and the players get dressed up as French soldiers and choose between crawling under a barbed wire obstacle course or deciphering a Morse code.  Everyone chooses to crawl on their bellies with fire and bombs going off around them. 

The detectives are out first and have the option to give one of the teams a blind u turn.  They decide Joe and Heidi need a dose of humble pie so they choose them and poor Joe and Heidi are having a hard time trying to figure out the Morse code.  Several teams pass them and it is starting to look like they are not going to make it.

But wait, Brent and Caite arrive at the pit stop 6th only to find out they never received one of their clues and must go back and retrieve it.  They make it back to the pit stop still in 6th place.

Jeff and Jordan still have to do their speed bump and we finally see the bickering between the two.  I’m holding my breath wanting Joe and Heidi to get it together but they do not.  Sadly they never figured out the code and Phil has to come find them and give them the bad news that they have been eliminated.

Louie and Michael come in first again and both receive a 55″ HDTV.  How do you like the teams left in the race?

What a great day in Survivor land!

| March 12, 2010 at 11:35 AM EDT

So the heroes are taking a beating aren’t they! I thought for sure they’d pull it off and win but NO! Looks like a villain ending coming right up 5th avenue!

Not that I’m even rooting for one side or the other, but it might have been nice to see the heroes win immunity, if for nothing else but to spark that gasoline puddle known as Boston Rob and Russell..you just KNOW those 2 trains are headed for a collision!

Couple things about last night, right off the bat.. seeing Tom go rocked so hard! For me, his season sucked so bad! When he kept winning immunity it was like rooting against Michael Jordan,when he kept winning all those titles! Lol..btw, I’m in Detroit, so I pretty much HATE Jordan..lol

See ya Tom!

I can’t tell you how happy I am he’s off early! Yessss! Lol..

Everyone seems pissed about the new James..to be honest, I’m diggin him! Sometimes when your Mr. Nice guy, it doesn’t work out, and you get pissed! I think that’s the deal with James! Nice guys really do finish last most of the time and he’s frustrated with that..

The J.T. thing..I thought that was smart of him to go against the “James vote” like that..make people forget he screwed them at last tribal..

But why are they so quick to let him off the hook from last week? It seems to be a pattern with these reality shows anymore..

It’s just assumed that someone’s gonna go against what they said their vote would be, and people kinda just brush it off as part of the game..

If I’m in the game, I’d never let anyone skate doing things like that..you have to put those fires out early! Don’t they think eventually that persons gonna burn them?

Too many people play the game defensively..but like with sports, sometimes a good offense IS the best defense!

But hey, Tom is off before the merge! So it’s a good day in Survivor land! For me anyways..
