Playing for charity, the Hip Hop star and the singer went down the street of New York to encourage people to buy pizzas at Famous Famiglia.
The taping of "The Celebrity Apprentice" officially began rolling on Tuesday, October 19 when the stars were out selling pizzas for charity. As usual, the very first task in the reality show is a battle of gender and it revolves around food. The show had previously assigned celebrities to sell hot dogs, cup cakes and burgers.
From the men's team, Lil Jon was actively out on the street in front of Famous Famiglia pizzeria in Manhattan's Greenwich Village neighborhood to encourage people to buy a slice. He was accompanied by Gary Busey and John Rich. Mark McGrath stepped behind the counter to prepare the pizzas, getting some help from Meat Loaf in the cash register.
Over in the other team, La Toya Jackson would stop passerby and even taxi drivers to hand out fliers. Star Jones was also on duty to usher people to their restaurant while Lisa Rinna traded her celebrity status with delivery girl.
Already the men's team gained a huge endorsement from Justin Bieber who tweeted, "If u r in NYC 2morrow my dude @LilJon is selling pizza from 11am-3pm at Famiglia Pizzeria on 757 Broadway for charity! Support!"
"The Celebrity Apprentice" premieres in March with the finale set in May.
