Penn Jillette and Trace Adkins Revealed as the Final 2 on "All Star Celebrity Apprentice"

On last night's "All Star Celebrity Apprentice" Trace Adkins and Penn Jillette were revealed to be the Final 2 after Trump fired Lisa Rinna and Lil Jon. The episode began with Donald calling the final four back into the boardroom right after Marilu was fired. He asked each contestant why they thought they should be in the finals. After hearing everyone's pleas, Trump decided to fire one person from each team. On Plan B, Donald felt that Penn was the stronger competitor and could raise more money and bring in more celebrities than Lisa, so he fired her. On Team Power, Donald thought that Trace's record of two wins as project manger and over $700,000 earned for his charity was more impressive than Lil Jon's, so he fired the rapper and kept the country star. He did give Lil Jon another $20,000 for his charity, however. The next day, the final two were given their last task: create a new flavor of Walgreens Delish brand premium ice cream, produce a promotional video and raise money for a launch event. Six former players were brought in to help Trace and Penn, with Lil Jon, Marilu and Gary joining Team Trace and Lisa, LaToya and Dennis joining Team Penn. On Trace's team, they decided on a maple macadamia nut flavor for their ice cream and started working on a video featuring Gary doing a funny dance. Over on Penn's team, they came up with an ice cream flavor featuring swirls of chocolate and little candy turtles and named it Swurtles. They also filmed a video featuring Penn and Teller doing a magic trick involving Dennis and the ice cream. The episode ended with Penn learning that the edited commercial was twelve seconds over their one minute time limit. Penn was stumped as to how they could cut out twelve seconds without ruining their entire video. Next week, either Penn or Trace will be crowned the new Celebrity Apprentice and be awarded $250,000 for their charity!
