The 'American Idol' alum leads the men team to win the latest challenge, while the women team sends home Patricia Velasquez who isn't asking her project manager's approval before printing pictures.
Clay Aiken has stepped up for his team in the latest episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice". He was chosen as project manager for Unanimous while the women team, Forte, chose Aubrey O'Day to be their project manager.
Both teams were tasked to throw a launch party for Mocktail, a new brand from Crystal Light. They would be judged on creativity, brand message and party atmosphere. The men team opted for a Beach theme to promote Peach Bellini, while the women team decided to go with "Garden of Eden" theme to promote Pom-tini.
The men team surprised Ivanka Trump when Clay explained their plans and told her that they were not partiers. Elsewhere, Aubrey started to worry when Donald Trump, Jr. visited Forte and thought that they might be missing the "fun" component.
At the men team, Clay enlisted his music director so that he, Arsenio Hall and Dee Snider could work on songs for the party. He felt the pressure was on, but hoped everything would run well on the D-day.
Meanwhile, Aubrey sent Debbie Gibson to record an original song for Crystal light. The former member of Danity Kane, however, was unhappy that Patricia Velasquez didn't ask for her approval before printing the pictures for the brand. When the pictures arrived, she noticed that there were no photos of Crystal Light.
When it's time for the party, Clay was worried that there were not many people coming yet. He told Arsenio Hall and Penn Jillette to go outside and get people join the party. Soon, their party was flooded with Clay's fans who dressed in beach wear. He then sang "Under the Boardwalk", but didn't mention the product.
The women's party was more laid back and elegant. Lisa Lampanelli tried to inject a little humor in her routine. Debbie sang the original song and the executives seemed to like it. Their party, however, was less fun than the men's.
At the Boardroom, the ladies were confident they would win this challenge. Donald Trump then announced the men's team as the winner and Clay won $50,000 for the National Inclusion Project. Aubrey cried that she didn't get the money for her charity, so the businessman decided to give her $10,000 for her charity.
Aubrey later brought back Patricia and Dayana Mendoza with her to the Boardroom. She said Dayana was not useful, but Patricia did contribute in their team's failure this time. Mr. Trump put the blame on Patricia's printing, thus she's fired.
In the limo, Patricia said she disagreed with Mr. Trump's decision, but was grateful for the opportunity. She thought the ladies need to be honest to each other.
