The last eliminated star of "The Celebrity Apprentice" season 5 was announced early in the penultimate episode. Aubrey O'Day was fired by Donald Trump after the businessman got some feedbacks from last season's final two, John Rich and Marlee Matlin.
"You are transparent, but I just think you're going to have a fantastic career," so Mr. Trump said before firing Aubrey. Apparently not taking the verdict well, the former Danity Kane star told the camera, "Transparent isn't the word. There's nothing see-through about me... Anyone that calls me transparent, then f**ck them."
With Aubrey leaving, Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall were left to face off each other in the finals. Ivanka Trump announced their last challenge would be to create, host, and sell tickets to a celebrity charity event, featuring a charity awareness ad and a variety show starring themselves.
Some of the eliminated contestants returned to help the final two. Arsenio picked Adam Carolla, Lisa Lampanelli, Paul Teutul Sr. and Teresa Giudice for his team, while Clay got Penn Jillette, Debbie Gibson, Dee Snider and Aubrey on his team.
Clay delegated tasks to everyone, with Debbie in charge of song selection. Aubrey proposed a carnival theme for their project. Clay was annoyed by Penn who disagreed with his plans to include a disabled child in their charity awareness ad.
In team Arsenio, Adam came up with an idea of the 1980s for their theme. Arsenio wanted to include Magic Johnson in their charity ad. Adam and Teresa then headed to a shop to get costumes for the ad.
Clay got some trouble in finding a location to film his ad. In the editing room, he disagreed with Debbie on the music. Clay was surprised when Lisa, who worked with Arsenio, called him to say that she would donate for Clay's charity.
Arsenio, meanwhile, didn't find too many difficulties in filming the ad. However, in the editing room, he and Adam began to worry when the long-awaited Magic Johnson footage was unusable.
The results of Clay and Arsenio's works will only be unveiled in next week's episode. One of them will be crowned the winner and get $250,000 for his charity.
