Donald Trump shocked viewers at home as well as the competing stars by cutting down two contestants in the last episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice". The businessman did so after the men team lost in the task involving automobiles.
When they were told to create a 20-minute presentation and Q&A session for Buick, former Formula One driver Michael Andretti refused to be a Project Manager and instead pointed Adam Carolla. Debbie Gibson, meanwhile, stepped up for the women team.
Despite lacking in product proficiency, the ladies seemingly won the hearts of the crowd at the presentation with their moving tale. Aubrey O'Day brought the audience to tears with a story of her mother's serious car accident.
As for the men team, they opted to deliver a funny presentation. The guys appeared to be leading from the women during the Q&A session, where they showed more knowledge about the car.
In the Boardroom, Mr. Trump told Michael that he and the Buick reps were shocked that Michael did not assume a bigger role in this challenge that suited him. The Buick reps declared the women team as the winner and Debbie got $50,000 for her charity.
When Adam was asked whom he would bring back to the boardroom, he refused to pick two other players. "When a soldier gets out of line, they blame the general," he reasoned. "In this case, I was the general." Mr. Trump soon announced he would fire two people.
Mr. Trump did not waste more time to make a decision and fired Adam. While the rest of the male contestants pinned it to Lou Ferrigno who has been an under-performer on tasks each week, the businessman fired Michael for not stepping up in the challenge despite his background.
