Tonight, “The Celebrity Apprentice” returned with new episodes on NBC, and one of the entertaining things that it brought to the table right away where some creative clashes between the stars. In particular we saw Boy George and Vince Neil get into it, while in the boardroom Snooki had to figure out a way to find herself to keep from getting fired … twice. She’s still there, while Carnie Wilson and Carrie Keagan are both gone.
Can the women turn it around over the next two tasks? We’re going to find out next week, as we’re going to be seeing King’s Hawaiian (a repeat sponsor for the show) and also Welch’s grape juice both play an integral role in what’s coming up.
Synopsis – “This week the contestants must create a live health segment showcasing Welch’s grape juice while healthy-lifestyle crusader and James Beard award-winning chef Rocco DiSpirito and prominent entertainment attorney Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger keep a watchful eye as advisors to boardroom boss Arnold Schwarzenegger. While the teams go all out trying to make entertaining and informative segments, one player learns the hard way how important it is to fight to stay in the competition. Later, digital influencer Justine “iJustine” Ezarik and Knapp Schwarzenegger serve as advisors to the boss when the teams are tasked with producing and editing viral videos for a new product from King’s Hawaiian. One team clashes over creative while a player on the opposing side struggles to navigate disagreements among very opinionated teammates, resulting in a surprisingly emotional boardroom showdown.”
The promo that aired tonight was mostly inconsequential in terms of telling us what is coming next, so we can’t speak on much of the drama. One thing that we will say is that by bringing iJustine onto the show, the “Apprentice” franchise is clearly trying to evolve. Can you imagine the old version of the show embracing the internet and influencers in that sort of way? We really can’t.
In terms of people who need to step it up moving forward, you gotta look in the direction of Snooki. She’s been in danger twice, and this could be the time coming up for her to be Project Manager and show that she can anchor a task effectively.
