In the third week of 'The Celebrity Apprentice', Donald Trump chose to fire Tom Green instead of Dennis Rodman but gave the latter an ultimatum to try harder.
The women team has triumphed over the men for the third time in a row, in the third episode of "The Apprentice" celebrity edition. Athena won the challenge of selling 125 wedding dresses in an empty slot which is free to decorate, raising $103,000 from the sale of 22 dresses.
The men on the other hand, sold 21 dresses for $63,000 dollars. Project manager for the KOTU team, Tom Green, consequently was in the board room and he brought along Dennis Rodman who also did a lousy job in the task. Donald Trump asked Dennis who he will fire, himself or Tom, and the former NBA star said he wanted to stay so he could fire Tom. Mr. Trump, based on the reason that Tom failed last week and this week, fired the comedian.
Tom was particularly eccentric when he was supposed to lead the team. He thought that they were too serious in handling the challenge and decided to goof around by trying on a dress. He also failed to order his team to decorate the empty shop. The men also lost because Dennis was not productive in his scheme to create a "buzz". He ended up inviting a Russian model who, along with him, were not present during the sale day.
The women team, on the other hand, got it all organized the right way. Melissa Rivers invited wedding planner Preston Bailey to come and help the team, and they had the store decorated in fresh flowers. The men's store however, still attracted customers but the women decided to play rough by sabotaging the customers into buying in their store.
Clint Black brought in $35,000 and Herschel Walker took a check of $16,000. The women however, got the boost from Annie Duke's $10,000 and QVC check of $25,000. All proceed goes to the winning team's project manager, Brande Roderick, whose charity of choice is California Police Youth Charities.
