Olympian Michael Johnson Quits and Model Selita Ebanks Fired on "Celebrity Apprentice"
On the newest "Celebrity Apprentice 3" two stars went home: Olympian Michael Johnson quit and model Selita Ebanks was fired. The episode began with Trump announcing to the cast that Sharon Osbourne was still sick and wouldn't be participating in the task. Neither would Cyndi Lauper, who had to attend an event at the White House. That evened out the teams 4 to 4. The remaining celebs were then told that their new task was to create two commercials for Right Guard Total Defense deodorant. Basketball players Clyde Drexler and Scottie Pippen would be the stars of the ads. Curtis Stone was picked as project manager for the men, while Holly Robinson Peete was chosen for the women. The women's idea for the ad was "The First Moments of Funk" where a mom discovers her son needs to use deodorant. The men's ad featured two boys trying to figure out why their basketball hero doesn't smell. During the task Bret Michaels learned that his daughter was being tested for Diabetes, but Bret didn't give up and continued working on the ads. The same couldn't be said for Michael Johnson, who told Trump he was leaving the show for "family issues". In the boardroom Trump revealed that, while the execs liked both team's commercials, the men had won. Losing project manager Holly picked Maria and Selita as the weakest members of their team. Trump admired Holly and Maria's fighting spirit but felt Selita didn't give it her all. Thus, she became the sixth person booted from the show.
