Rumor has it that Teresa will be back on a later show to help out with a task, despite her being fired last week. Teresa tweeted to her fans that this was the case. Teresa may be smarter than people think! Teresa says she learned a lot on the show where the cat fights don’t really phase her.
The final five met at the Hearst Tower to find out what the task would be this week from Mr. Trump. They meet Editor in Chief of Elle and CEO of Farouk Systems, the marketers of products of Chi hair products. Chi has a brand new hair dryer that offers a touch screen and their task is to create a four page ad campaign as a promotion. They will be judged on the usual brand messaging, the print ad campaign, and the overall presentation of the pitch. To head up the teams as project managers this week, Lisa and Teresa step forward.
A weird moment happened at the task meeting as Farouk kept hitting on Aubrey O’Day prompting Trump to try and sell Aubrey to Farouk as his wife. Farouk jokes back and refers to her beauty, saying he would shower her with jewels and houses or something.
For team Unanimous, they return to the Penthouse as Farouk and the Elle lady show up to give the team some additional guidance on the project. Arsenio immediately notices and comments on Farouk’s pimpin’ red shoes that match the branding of the Chi product. It is also overly obvious that Farouk continues to hit on Aubrey in a shameless manor, with Aubrey offering her giddy acceptance to it in a most inviting manner, playing him to her advantage. Arsenio comments that men take to Aubrey and that he would also take to her if she wasn’t such a bitch. He wonders if her fake red hair is the attraction.
Ideas bounce after the executives get going, but as usual, Aubrey is driving the boat. She wants to pitch the ad campaign in the future of hair care with some sort of Buddhist meditation. She also wants no words on the ad and as usual, has a million ideas over and above the rest of the team.
As a twist this week, Trump sets the teams up to negotiate for their models for the pitch and add campaign. Aubrey has her head set on a red headed model (based on the perverted obsession of Farouk on her red hair), so she tells Teresa to get that in the model negotiations. However, that is not an easy task as Lisa also wants a red-head based on Farouk’s hit on Aubrey and there is only one red-head in the model line up. Although Lisa and Clay could care less about the models, Lisa just tries to rattle Teresa in the negotiations for the red-head.
Lisa uses her normal bully approach to the negotiations and Teresa returns to get additional coaching from Aubrey although Lisa ends up getting her way since nobody can ever hold up to her unprofessional bullying. When Eric arrives, Aubrey and Arsenio make sure they let him know that Teresa dropped the ball.
Lisa and Clay decide to capture the Elle girl as the feature women whose outward appearance doesn’t reflect who they really are. They are sure they will be the winners, Lisa can’t fathom being a loser in her over-confident manner.
It is back to the boardroom as Arsenio and Aubrey give Teresa a bashing she could not withstand that resulted in her firing. Unfortunately, Lisa won the task and the $100,000 for her charity.
The last twist of the night was heavenly as the final four were returned to the boardroom after Lisa gloated over getting just one more good contestant fired. Two alums from “Celebrity Apprentice” came onboard to determine who the next person to go would be in a double elimination night, which the teams were not expecting. Finally, Lisa got the ax and was the pick to get fired due to her “coarse” behavior. It’s about time!
Only three players left. Tune into NBC Sunday nights to see who will make it to the end as “Celebrity Apprentice” narrows down a winner for the season.
