The teams create celebrity workouts for a fitness center, and one project manager reaches their breaking point. As another contestant is eliminated.
Those still in the game, on Team Tenacity are Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper, Holly Robinson Peete, Summer Sanders, and Maria Kanellis. Those still surviving on Team Rock Solid are Bret Michaels and Curtis Stone. Last week team Rock Solid lost Goldberg. Neither team seemed too pleased with Goldberg being fired, instead of Bret Michaels. Bret was put in the place of having creative control, which was a mistake on Goldberg’s part.
But, Donald Trump changed up the game plan tonight, as there were only two guys left on Team Tenacity. So Trump sent Maria and Sharon to team Rock Solid with Bret Michaels. Curtis Stone was sent to Team Tenacity with Holly Peete, Summer, and Cyndi Lauper. Thank you Donald Trump – I couldn’t stand another moment of hearing Holly Peete bickering with anyone. She is super annoying and not people friendly, and that is required no matter how professional your title may be. Tick tick…until Holly tears apart Cyndi Lauper.
Sharon was made project leader of Team Rock Solid, and then Holly was made team leader of Team Tenacity. They are both fighting for their charities, so which will have the best celebrity workout? Sharon, I hope. Why, you ask? Because Holly Peete Robinson just makes the show unbearable, for me. I can’t stand seeing a grown adult constantly run other people down, and act as though they are better. Major pet peeve for me. Yes, Holly, I mean you.
The teams quickly gathered their bearings and they began constructing and customizing their workouts for the task. Sharon and Maria guessed that Summer would be over the workout on Team Tenacity, and predictably, they were correct. Bret through out a few ideas to bring their celebrities to the game. He is actually pretty quick on his feet, even though he is a big talker, he is a good asset on the team. He’s a team player, and so are Maria and Sharon. They did have more fun then Team Tenacity, and they worked hard while doing it.
Team Rock Solid incorporated themselves into their workout. And I found myself oddly shocked to see a women stand straddle over Bret during his workout class. In his life that is probably a daily occurrence. Oddly enough.
In the end both teams were really pressed for time and they had a lot to do. Summer Sanders and Curtis Stone did not have any people show up for their workout. So, she had to do a lot of running around the gym begging people to come to the class. I am surprised that they didn’t even advertise their workout class, hello! How can anyone randomly show up if they don’t know you are there? They can’t.
Meanwhile, the Rock Solid team got focused and developed a rock star workout to appeal to the masses. Ivanka Trump said it could be excellent or a disaster, and she nailed it. I thought they went a bit over board, calling one move rock star thrust. I don’t think the hardcore terms appeal to a large audience, especially on a charity task. However, I liked the rock star theme and thought it was brilliant! Especially if they don’t turn the workout into a circus.
Team Tenacity had only three people in the class, with Summer as the teacher. By the second class, Cyndi got many people in to participate. As the other team had a full class for the first class, as the night before Sharon was at a big World Wrestling Event (WWE) and Ozzy Osbourne had already promoted Team Rock Solid by radio. Both teams did a good job during the workout sessions, and classes got fuller as each class started. Both teams needed bodies to fill the room, so that their donor’s contributions could be counted. As a person had to be present for every donation, and many faxed checks or sent someone else to deliver the donations.
In the boardroom Holly revealed her charity work draws in half a million dollars a year. Very impressive. But Sharon is a huge influence, so I was dying to know who raised the most money. The judges felt that Team Rock Solid deserved the $24,000 bonus for having the best workout. This amount is being added to the amount that her team has already raised. Which could be the deciding factor in most money raised.
But in the end, the most money was raised by Team Tenacity. Donald said that the amount they raised was the most ever raised at one time, within 24 hours on ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’. Her charity is the HollyRod Foundation they raise money for families affected by autism. She said the winning money was earmarked to build an autism treatment center for autism.
Team Rock Solid raised $131, 803, and Team Tenacity raised $206,090. Both did a good job, but Tenacity won for fund-raising and Rock Solid won for the workout portion.
So Team Rock Solid was under the microscope, and it looked like Sharon was getting fired. Trump revealed that tonight no one would be fired. This made Sharon safe! I was thrilled with The Trump’s decision!
You can’t blame him for saving Sharon, she did raise over $100,000 is 24 hours. And tonight was an amazing show, and the reason I watch!
