Celebrity Apprentice 2012 Cheryl Tiegs eliminated in first episode. Supermodel Cheryl Tiegs was the first celebrity fired on tonight’s Celebrity Apprentice, but in her defense the challenge had to do with food. The show’s fifth season kicked off with a bang tonight! The contestants were introduced to each other, and Donald Trump split them into two teams, which was Men vs. women.

The guys’ team, named “Unanimous” was made up of Clay Aiken, Adam Carolla, Arsenio Hall, Dee Snider, George Takei, Lou Ferrigno, Michael Andretti, Paul Teutul Sr, and Penn Jillette.

The girls’ group, named “Forte” was made up of Tia Carrere, Aubrey O’Day, Debbie Gibson, Victoria Gotti, Teresa Giudice, Lisa Lampanelli, Dayana Mendoza, Cheryl Tiegs and Patricia Velasquez.

Donald gave them their first task, which was making celebrity sandwiches for their charities, and the team with the best sales would win and be safe from elimination. The men won by a landslide, and then it was time to pick which female went home. Tiegs left without a fight, stating that the show “wasn’t really a good fit for her”.
