Rod Blagojevich Fired on "Celeb Apprentice"
On the fourth episode of "Celebrity Apprentice 3" former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich was finally fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with Trump calling the celebs back into the boardroom to pick new project managers. Rod was chosen on the men's side, while Victoria's Secret supermodel Selita Ebanks stepped up on the women's side. Trump then informed the teams that the two project managers would be flying to a mystery destination while the rest of the team stayed in New York. When Rod and Selita boarded the plane they learned that they were flying to Orlando and that their task was to design an interactive 3-D experience promoting Universal Studios' new Harry Potter attraction. While Selita automatically started texting and emailing her teammates, Rod's inability to use technology hindered his communication with his team. When he finally did contact the others he put Bret in charge of design. The two teams then built the experiences and gave their presentations to the execs and some young Harry Potter fans. The kids were more impressed with the women's job, which meant Selita won $20,000 for her charity. In the boardroom Rod picked Michael and Curtis as the two weakest members, but Trump thought he should have chosen Bret. In the end Rod's poor performance as project manager left Trump no choice but to fire him.
