The former Illinois government did not do a proper research of 'Harry Potter' facts which were crucial in building a display of the theme park ride.
After publicly showing an incompetency in the technology world, Rod Blagojevich was fired from "The Celebrity Apprentice" due to his incompetency as a leader. The former Illinois governor was the evicted on the Sunday, April 4 episode where he was appointed the project manager in the task to create an interactive display to promote Orlando Universal theme parks' Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
In this task, the project manager was quickly separated from the rest of the team and had to communicate with them through phone and internet. Blagojevich left much of the responsibility like construction and design to Bret Michaels. His main problem was, not knowing how to text or e-mail his team about what he saw while inspecting the ride in Orlando.
During the work, the team complained of how Blagojevich did not give them clear direction of what he wanted. He even slept on the return flight, a subject which was later brought up into the boardroom, while the women's project manager, Selita Ebanks, continued to work.
In the first boardroom, Donald Trump announced that the executives loved the men's display but preferred the women's. As the winner Ebanks was given $20,000 for her charity Sierra Leona. Blagojevich decided to bring in Curtis Stone and Michael Johnson. Trump confronted Blagojevich why he didn't bring Michaels and the politician said he credited Michaels for doing most of the job.
Blagojevich told Trump to fire Stone but the celebrity chef argued the project manager did not manage them well. Johnson agreed. Trump then asked who did a research on the "Harry Potter" facts, and Blagojevich admitted that no one did. He even mentioned the two houses in the fiction as Slythering and Ravencloth instead of Slytherin and Ravenclaw. Trump said he has a great respect for Blagojevich but he had to fire him.
