‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ review: Jamie Anderson, Kenya Moore, Brandi Glanville battle in episode 4
Tonight’s episode of “The Celebrity Apprentice” (or at least the first hour) raised an interesting question to us: How much of Geraldo Rivera do you really need to see? It’s funny, because we actually remember this selfie he took being a big story across the internet back ten or so months ago.
As it turns out, it was for this task! This was a really funny segment, mostly since it was the men vs. the women facing off for see who was the strongest in producing a photo shoot for Cosmopolitan. Somehow, the men did a much better job despite not being the target demographic. The reason for this is that there was a certain amount of consistency in theirs. They used their male athletes from start to finish, and used their wives at times for really smart segments. (Project Manager Johnny Damon was really smart here.) They even used Geraldo! Albeit briefly.
Meanwhile, the women were lead by Jamie Anderson, and to be frank, she did not do a great job. She was far too tentative, and did not trust her own ideas as much as she should have. It was pretty obvious that she lost, but the question was do you get rid of her for being tentative, or for Brandi Glanville and Kenya Moore for being disruptive? These two at times seem so interested in being front and center, they don’t focus on anything else. Brandi is negative, Kenya likes to take all the credit, and most of the team seems to want both of them gone.
Interestingly, few of the women wanted to blame Jamie for this. She made a weird decision in not bringing back Brandi, and brought Kate Gosselin in her place. Why? Kate didn’t do anything this week! Jamie seemed to immediately regret this decision, and the writing was on the wall here that she should be fired. She seems like an incredibly nice person, but not meant for this show. She should go back to being a snowboarder, where she is a champion.
Her biggest mistake? Her suggesting that Donald Trump wouldn’t want to fire Kenya or Brandi, which made him suddenly defend his “credibility.” Wait, this show has credibility? See you, Jamie. Episode Grade: B+.
