"All-Star" seasons are all the rage this year.
Donald Trump announced Friday that "Celebrity Apprentice" will have its first ever all-stars season starring 14 cast members from the previous five editions. Believe us when we say this is one must-watch lineup ...
You couldn't find a better matched pair - or two people with closer ties to their charities - than Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall, who managed to make it to the live season finale of "Celebrity Apprentice" on Sunday night.
Clay actually founded his "National Inclusion Project," while the "'Magic Johnson Foundation" was born out of an appearance the legendary basketball player made on Arsenio's '90s talk show (which, by the way, Arsenio announced he hopes to revive).
So the two went head-to-head with competing fundraising parties the same night. Both went with their strengths: For Arsenio, a team of comedians (plus "Real Housewife" Teresa Guidice), while Clay opted for a team of musicians (plus Penn Jillette).
Tia, you’re fired!
And so it went on Sunday night, when actress and singer Tia Carrere became Donald Trump’s latest victim on “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
The Grammy winner was given the ax after she took responsibility for the women’s latest team loss.
With 18 contestants, more than we’ve ever seen on “Celebrity Apprentice,” it seems easy for some of the cast to get lost in the shuffle.
And in a way, that’s what happened to legendary supermodel Cheryl Tiegs on Sunday night’s season premiere.
Despite a female team that worked well, for the most part, and raised an extraordinary amount of money under the leadership of Patricia Velasquez (who may be more remembered for her time on “Arrested Development” and the first scene from “The Mummy” than her modeling), it was determined that Tiegs brought the group down with her slow work pace.
Sunday night’s fifth season premiere of “Celebrity Apprentice" will host a record number of 18 contestants, which means there's also a larger variety of cast members, from Adam Carolla and Penn Jillette to Arsenio Hall and Debbie Gibson.
The former late night talk show host and former teen pop sensation recently spoke with reporters, along with the show’s star and executive producer, Donald Trump.
After so many years of doing this, Trump reflected on what he’s learned so far. For one thing, don't judge a contestant by his or her cover.
Not unlike the host of the show, Donald Trump, the fifth season cast of "Celebrity Apprentice" will speak on just about any topic under the sun.
First and foremost, of course, they spoke to reporters on Wednesday about what to expect this season (though they weren't allowed to say too much, as usual).
“This season we had the biggest cast we’ve ever had," said Aubrey O'Day, a veteran of MTV's "Making the Band" and Oxygen's "All About Aubrey."
