Actor Gary Busey the Ninth Celebrity Fired on "All Star Celebrity Apprentice"

gary-buseyOn last night's "All Star Celebrity Apprentice" actor Gary Busey became the ninth celebrity fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to write, produce and direct a 90 second video promoting LG's Home Entertainment Systems. Lil Jon was picked as project manager for Team Power, while Gary Busey stepped up on Plan B. Before the teams began work on their videos they met up with some LG representatives who gave them tutorials on all their products. However, project manager Gary walked away from one of the spokesmen when he was right in the middle of explaining something important. That was only the beginning of Plan B's problems as Gary shot down all of Penn and Lisa's ideas and insisted on doing things his way. That meant filming a video featuring himself as the father of a family who thought LG's next invention would be a mechanical dog. He would then start barking uncontrollably until he was given a LG phone. Not surprisingly, Penn and Lisa had no idea what any of that meant but had no choice except to give in to Gary's craziness. Over on Team Power Lil Jon, Marilu and Trace came up with an idea to make a video where Marilu would play a mother who shows her teenage sons all the things she learned about the easy to use LG products. Once the videos were shot and edited, they were screened for the executives as well as Ivanka and Joan Rivers. In the boardroom, Trump informed the teams that the executives much preferred Team Power's video and Lil Jon was awarded $40,000 for his charity. He could also earn an additional $35,000 since LG would donate $1 for every share on Facebook his video received. On Plan B, Gary made the case that his teammates abandoned him on the task, an accusation that Penn & Lisa vehemently denied. In the end, Trump placed the blame on Gary since the execs didn't like the "mechanical dog" bit and felt the video didn't showcase many of their products. Thus, after nine weeks, two stints as project manager and hundreds of "YAAAH"s, Gary was finally fired.

"YouTube Hosts" Joey and Meghan the Seventh Team Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 22"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 22" friends and YouTube hosts Joey Graceffa and Meghan Camarena became the seventh team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the final five teams flying from Berlin, Germany to Edinburgh, Scotland. Mona & Beth and Joey & Meghan thought they nabbed an early flight that landed in Edinburgh at 1pm, when in actuality the other three teams were landing hours ahead of them at 10:40am. When the teams arrived in Scotland they drove themselves to Gosford House where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to play a drone on a set of bagpipes while marching around the castle with members of the Royal Scots regiment. When the task was completed, the teams drove to Craigmillar Castle and had to search through the castle's many fireplaces to find their next clue. Once they found the clue, they traveled to the village of Duddingston where they found a Detour. The choice of tasks was between making four portions of the Scottish dish haggis and then taking a bite of the finished product or rolling eight whiskey barrels up a steep slope. Before Mona & Beth could attempt the Detour they had to complete their Speed Bump task, which consisted of hitting a strike in the bowling-like game of Skittles. After completing the Detour, teams went to Duddingston Kirk where they came across a Double U-Turn. Max and Katie were the first team to reach the U-Turn and they decided to use it on Joey and Meghan. Soon after that, Bates and Anthony arrived at the U-Turn and they used it on Mona and Beth. Max and Katie were once again the first team to make it to the Pit Stop & were awarded $10,000 each. Unsurprisingly, Joey & Meghan and Mona & Beth battled in out for last place as they both had to complete each part of the Detour. Mona & Beth's strength came in handy during the barrel task and they were able to overtake Joey & Meghan and check into the Pit Stop first. When the YouTubers did check in, Phil told them they were in last place and eliminated them from the race.

Malcolm Freberg the Eleventh Castaway Voted Off "Survivor 26: Caramoan Fans Vs. Favorites"

On tonight's "Survivor 26: Caramoan" 25 year old bartender Malcolm Freberg became the eleventh castaway voted off the show. The episode began with the aftermath of last week's crazy tribal council where Phillip was sent packing. Once everyone composed themselves from that game-changing tribal, they were given tree mail stating it was time for the Survivor auction. Each castaway was given $500 and could bid on any item they liked in increments of $20. Malcolm bought beer and nuts, as well as an advantage in the game that ended up being a detailed clue as to the whereabouts of a new hidden immunity idol. Andrea bought spaghetti and meatballs, but was given the option of trading it for beans and rice for the whole tribe. Not surprisingly, she chose the beans and rice and gave up the pasta. Reynold was given three mystery items and ended up with only one slice of pizza, while Sherri spent her entire $500 on the whole rest of the pizza. All the castaways except Dawn, Sherri and Malcolm were able to buy letters from home for only $20 each. In the end though, Cochran nabbed the biggest prize and was awarded an advantage at the next Immunity challenge. Back at camp, Malcolm went searching for the hidden idol, but was spotted by Andrea, who followed him around all day in order to prevent him from looking for the idol. The plan worked, as Malcolm was unable to locate the hidden idol. At the Immunity challenge, the castaways had to hold onto a rope that was connected to a log weighing one-third of their body weight. At regular intervals they had to move down a knot on the rope, making it more difficult to support the weight. Cochran used his advantage of being able to move up two knots pretty quickly into the challenge and it paid off, as he easily won the challenge and earned his second individual immunity. Back at camp, a desperate Malcolm approached Sherri about joining his alliance and Sherri led on that she liked the idea. Meanwhile, Reynold approached Erik with the same pitch and he too pretended to contemplate the idea. But when the vote came at tribal council, Sherri and Erik stuck with their original alliance and they split the votes between Malcolm and Reynold. With the three guy's votes for Andrea that created a three-way tie and a re-vote was needed. Knowing that Malcolm didn't have an idol, the alliance of six took the opportunity to get rid of him & Malcolm became the third member of the jury by a unanimous vote of 6-0.

Actress Brande Roderick the Eighth Celebrity Fired on "All Star Celebrity Apprentice"

brande-roderickOn last night's "All Star Celebrity Apprentice" actress/model Brande Roderick became the eighth celebrity fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to create an interactive travel expo for South Africa Tourism. Brande Roderick was picked as project manager for Team Power, while Penn Jillette stepped up on Plan B. The teams then flipped a coin to decide who would get which theme - Romance or Adventure. Team Power got Adventure, while Plan B ended up with Romance. On Team Power, Brande decided to create five different stations representing five activities people could enjoy in South Africa - golfing, surfing, zip-lining, spa treatments and cage diving with sharks. Trace wasn't happy, however, that the activities were being showcased in silly ways, such as a man dressed like a cartoon shark and Marilu pushing people in chairs to simulate zip-lining. Over on Plan B, Penn and Lisa had to once again rein in Gary, especially when he told one of the South Africa Tourism representatives that he once heard people being murdered while filming a movie in Johannesburg. Once they got Gary under control, Penn contacted some of his friends and set up an expo featuring world famous South African musicians, five star South African food and real Zulu dancers. After the executives visited both team's setups, the contestants made their way to the boardroom to find out the results. Trump revealed that they liked both team's efforts but preferred Plan B more, earning Penn another $20,000 for his charity. On Team Power, Brande chose to save Lil Jon and bring Trace and Marilu back to the boardroom. Trump didn't agree with her decision and even offered her a chance to change her mind. Brande refused and Donald had no choice but to place the bulk of the blame on the PM, thus sending the former Playmate packing. Trump did give Brande $20,000 for her charity however as a consolation gift.

"Roller Derby Moms" Mona and Beth Avoid Elimination on "The Amazing Race 22"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 22" roller derby moms Mona Egender and Beth Bandimere avoided elimination despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the final five teams flying from Zurich, Switzerland to Dresden, Germany. When the teams landed they traveled to the Ministry of Finance and picked up a 2013 Ford Fusion. Before they were told where to drive to, the teams had to answer three multiple choice questions about Germany using the MyFord Touch system. After they correctly answered the questions, they were instructed to drive over 100 miles to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. When they arrived at the gate, the teams were told to drive to the nearby Park Inn and head up to the roof for their next clue. That clue informed the teams that they both had to BASE jump 37 stories off the top of the hotel. When both teammates completed the jump, they were given their next clue: the Detour. The choice of tasks was between assembling a toy train track and getting the train to make one full lap around the track or transporting two large neon letters by foot to a nearby museum. All the teams except Joey and Meghan initially chose the letter task. Bates and Anthony broke one of their letters on the walk to the museum and decided to switch to the train task. When the Detour was completed teams traveled to the Salon zur Wilden Renate where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to travel through a crazy labyrinth located within the club to a hidden room that contained their next clue. Max and Katie were the first team to complete all the tasks and make it to the Pit Stop first, earning them both a brand new Ford Fusion. Bates & Anthony and Mona & Beth were battling it out for last place, culminating in a footrace to the Pit Stop. Unsurprisingly, the brothers arrived first, causing the roller derby moms to check in last. Fortunately for them, it was a non-elimination leg and they were still in the race. Can they overcome their Speed Bump and stay in the game? Tune in next week to find out!

Phillip Sheppard the Tenth Castaway Voted Off "Survivor 26: Caramoan Fans Vs. Favorites"

On tonight's "Survivor 26: Caramoan" 54 year old former federal agent Phillip Sheppard became the tenth castaway voted off the show. The episode began with Dawn having a breakdown after she lost her fake bottom teeth while swimming in a pond. Thankfully, Brenda came to the rescue and was able to find the teeth in the water. Later, the castaways were split into two teams of five and competed in the Reward challenge. The team of Reynold, Phillip, Erik, Cochran and Dawn won the challenge and were awarded a trip to a resort and a feast. Back at camp, Dawn got paranoid that Andrea was going to turn on their alliance and join up with Malcolm, Reynold and Eddie. However, after a full night's sleep Dawn started to feel better and realized her alliance was still intact. At the Immunity challenge Reynold crushed the competition and earned his first individual immunity. That forced the Stealth R Us alliance to change their plan and split the votes between Malcolm and Eddie. However, their plan hit another snag when Malcolm found a hidden immunity idol right in front of their eyes. At tribal council, Malcolm shocked everyone again when he pulled out a second immunity idol and gave it to Eddie. Since the Stealth R Us alliance now couldn't vote for Reynold, Malcolm or Eddie they started scrambling over who to turn on. Brenda threw out Andrea's name, but in the end they decided to stick with the plan of splitting votes between Malcolm and Eddie in the hopes that one of them wouldn't use their idol. After the votes were cast, both Malcolm and Eddie played their idols before Jeff read the results. With all the votes for Malcolm and Eddie not counted, the four votes for Phillip were all that was needed to send the Specialist home.

Actor Stephen Baldwin the Seventh Celebrity Fired on "All Star Celebrity Apprentice"

stephen-baldwinOn last night's "All Star Celebrity Apprentice" actor Stephen Baldwin became the seventh celebrity fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to create a 60 second silent film promoting Australian Gold. Trace Adkins was picked as project manager for Team Power, while Gary Busey stepped up on Plan B. Because Plan B had two extra members Trump moved Marilu Henner over to Team Power. On Plan B, Gary's ideas were all over the map and his teammates had to reign in all his thoughts. They ultimately decided to make a video featuring Lisa as a woman who was afraid of the sun and Gary as the man with Australian Gold who saves the day. Over on Team Power, Trace came up with an idea to make a video starring a caveman who travels through time and discovers Australian Gold. Trace even ended up playing the caveman with Lil Jon once again doing the directing. After both teams shot their films, they presented them to Trump and the executives. In the boardroom, Trump revealed that the execs liked both videos a lot, but ultimately declared Team Power the winner, earning Trace another $40,000 for his charity. On Plan B, Gary decided to bring Stephen and Penn back to the boardroom, but Trump quickly sent Penn back out. Donald was torn on whether to fire Gary (the project manager) or Stephen (the director of the video). In the end, Trump used Stephen's own words against him saying he never should have said that Gary was an amazing project manager. Because of that, Stephen was fired.

"Married Couple" Chuck & Wynona McCall the Sixth Team Eliminated from "Amazing Race 22"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 22" married couple Chuck and Wynona McCall became the sixth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the six remaining teams flying from Maun, Botswana to Zurich, Switzerland. When the teams landed a conductor gave them a clue instructing them to take the train to Grindelwald. When they arrived there an Alpine shepherd gave them another clue telling them to travel to the Hotel Bellevue, pick up a Saint Bernard dog and take him to Europe's highest railway station. Once they transported the dogs, the teams traveled back to Grindelwald where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to traverse the north face of the Eiger mountain and pick up a Travelocity gnome along the way. Once they reached the other side the teams traveled to Grindelwald Grund where they followed the sound of an alphorn to find their next clue. That clue ended up being the Switchback, which was a redo of the classic cheese wheel task from season fourteen. This time around, teams used a traditional Swiss sled to transport four 50 pound wheels of cheese downhill to a barn. Once again, Bates and Anthony were the first team to complete all the tasks and make it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Bora Bora. Chuck & Wynona and Meghan & Joey had fallen behind the other teams and were battling it out to not check in last. In the end, Chuck and Wynona arrived at the Pit Stop first, but were given a thirty minute penalty for rolling the cheese down the hill instead of using the sleds. That allowed Meghan and Joey to catch up and check in while Chuck and Wynona were waiting out their penalty. Phil then told the married couple that they were in last place and eliminated them from the race.

Michael Snow the Ninth Castaway Voted Off "Survivor 26: Caramoan Fans Vs. Favorites"

On tonight's "Survivor 26: Caramoan" 44 year old event planner Michael Snow became the ninth castaway voted off the show. The episode began with Phillip officially making Sherri a member of the Stealth R Us alliance and naming her "Tenacity". At the Reward challenge the team of Reynold, Eddie, Cochran, Michael and Erik won the game and were awarded the ability to rappel down a waterfall and enjoy a picnic lunch. During the lunch Reynold pitched the idea of an all-male alliance to Cochran, but he wasn't having any of it. Back at camp, a desperate Malcolm approached Sherri and Dawn about flipping on their alliance and joining himself, Eddie and Reynold. Not only did the girls not take Malcolm up on his offer, but they made a plan to blindside him at the next tribal council as well. At the Immunity challenge Brenda was able to stay underwater longer than all the other tribemates and she took home immunity. Later, Dawn continued to play Malcolm by asking to see Reynold's hidden immunity idol as proof that they were being truthful with her. Reynold did show Dawn the idol, but said he planned on using it if he felt he needed to. Meanwhile, Eddie told Andrea that her name was being thrown around as a possibility to be voted out. This didn't sit well with Andrea, who contemplated scrapping the original plan to blindside Malcolm and instead vote out Michael. At tribal council Phillip stated that anybody who is disloyal to his alliance would get voted out. After the votes were cast Jeff asked if anyone wanted to play a hidden immunity idol and Reynold stood up. However, Malcolm stopped him and said that because of Phillip's statement it was obvious that the Stealth R Us alliance had voted him out. Reynold gave Malcolm his idol and Malcolm played it right then and there. It was all for naught though, as the alliance had given in to Andrea's wishes and voted out Michael instead. By a vote of 7-3 Michael was eliminated and became the first member of the jury.

NBA Player Dennis Rodman the Sixth Celebrity Fired on "All Star Celebrity Apprentice"

dennis-rodmanOn tonight's "All Star Celebrity Apprentice" former NBA player Dennis Rodman became the sixth celebrity fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to create a product display and advertorial campaign promoting the "Melania" skin care line. Dennis was picked as project manager for Team Power, while Penn stepped up on Plan B. On Team Power, Dennis failed to take charge and lead his team, instead bringing up odd ideas like checking out Melania's bathroom. Over on Plan B, Penn clashed with Eric Trump when Eric came to visit them during the task. Later, both teams gave their presentations to Melania and the executives. However, the members of Team Power failed to realize that they incorrectly spelled Melania's name on one of the posters. In the boardroom, Trump wasted no time in telling the contestants that Team Power lost, because the misspelling was unforgivable. Dennis decided to only bring Trace back to the boardroom, since he was the only one involved in making the aforementioned poster. In the end, Trump placed most of the blame on the PM for not noticing the mistake and fired Dennis.

Corinne Kaplan the Eighth Castaway Voted Off "Survivor 26: Caramoan Fans Vs. Favorites"

On tonight's "Survivor: Caramoan" 33 year old clinical consultant Corinne Kaplan became the eighth castaway voted off the show. The episode began with Phillip telling Corinne and Dawn that he threw the last challenge and gave up immunity, which the girls didn't buy for a second. The next day, tree mail arrived and informed the tribes that it was time for the merge. During the traditional merge feast Malcolm came up with the new tribe name Enil Edam, which was actually his mom's name spelled backwards. Later, when Malcolm was able to meet up with Corinne they made a plan for their alliance of five to vote with the tribe this week, but turn on them after that and vote out Phillip. Surprisingly, Corinne went and told the plan to Dawn, who didn't like how the Favorites alliance was falling apart. At the first individual Immunity challenge, the castaways had to eat various gross foods. After four rounds, it came down to Cochran vs. Malcolm, with Cochran ultimately emerging the winner. Back at camp, Cochran and Dawn debated whether to tell Phillip about the plan to backstab him. In the end, they decided to tell him and Phillip didn't take much convincing to agree to turn on Corinne. The Stealth R Us alliance approached Sherri and Erik with the plan to blindside Corinne and they both agreed to do it. At tribal council, everyone stuck to their word and Corinne was blindsided by a vote of 7-5.

Omarosa Fired on All Star Celebrity Apprentice

omarosaOn last night's "All Star Celebrity Apprentice" Omarosa became the fifth celebrity fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to create and sell original, three dimensional artwork. Lil Jon was picked as project manager for Team Power, while Lisa Rinna stepped up on Plan B. Because Plan B had two extra members Trump moved Trace Adkins over to Team Power. On Plan B, everyone started calling their big donors except Stephen Baldwin, who once again held off on asking his contacts for big donations. On Team Power, Dennis donated a signed Derek Jeter baseball bat for use in one of their pieces of art. Both teams then set up their gallery shows and had their donors come by and give money. In the boardroom, Trump announced that the winning team was Plan B and that Lisa would be getting all $404,500 for her charity. On Team Power, Lil Jon decided to bring Dennis and Omarosa back to the boardroom, since they were the lowest money earners. Trump felt that Dennis and Omarosa both did poorly bringing in money, but that Dennis showed more determination and fighting spirit than his last time on the show. Because of that, Trump decided it was time to let Omarosa go and fired her for the third time.
