Celebrity Apprentice is back, with our most anticipated season ever.
14 of the most memorable celebrities have returned
to do it all over again, and for the first time,
someone will be named the All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
NBA Hall of Famer and bad boy, Dennis Rodman.
Actress, host and author, Lisa Rinna.
Rock star and previous winner of the Celebrity Apprentice, Bret Michaels.
I'm the only winner here. I have a target this big on my back.
Model and television host, Claudia Jordan.
Master illusionist and Vegas superstar, Penn Jilette.
Country star and Celebrity Apprentice runner-up, Trace Adkins.
I didn't come up here to just dick around, I came up here to win,
so I expect it to be a war of attrition.
Playmate of the Year, Brande Roderick.
DJ artist, rap star and entrepreneur, Lil Jon.
The Apprentice original All-Star, Omarosa.
Here I am, yet again, to complete some unfinished business.
Actor, author and entrepreneur, Stephen Baldwin.
Rock star and Twisted Sister frontman, Dee Snider.
Star of Taxi and bestselling author, Marilu Henner.
Academy award-nominated actor, Gary Busey.
Everyone that I see carries a rainbow around their shoulders.
And entertainment icon, La Toya Jackson.
These celebrities aren't just stars, they're All-Stars.
And that means the competition is going to be tougher than ever.
This is All-Stars. They're not throwing you under the bus,
they're throwing you in front of the bus.
They've got to make it crazier than any other season.
Coming through, babe.
This season, the celebrities will be pushed further than ever before.
-I can't do this any more.
-Claudia, did you say that?
-Yes, I did say that.
-I'm only kidding.
If you have to fart, fart quick, but keep your energy up.
This could be one of the stranger selections of people
in the history of Celebrity Apprentice.
SCREAMING AND WHOOPING
-HE GRUNTS AND BARKS
Men In Black are going to come get him, I swear,
cos he's an alien.
..and they've got a second chance to fight for their charity.
Last time I was here I wasn't able to raise one cent for my charity.
I cannot let that happen again.
Two 10,000 cheques...
20,000! Oh, man, that's incredible.
SHE CHEERS LOUDLY
But they'll have to face the previous winners in the boardroom...
It's great to see Omarosa again, it really is.
And remember, I'm on this side this time.
If you don't drop it, then we can go.
..as they battle to be the very first All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
Get the money. Get the money means get the damn money.
-You said right here... You did that same
-We don't give a
You did yell because I heard you yell and it was like this.
Don't ever tell me to be quiet.
Who is the most disrespectful person sitting in this room right now?
The good, the bad, the ugly.
Last time on the show my head was cut off
-so fast I didn't know what hit me. You threw me under the
and you know it. All of you did. They want me fired. Are you kidding me?
This time, I will not let that happen.
-My bras are legendary. Legendary.
-You raised no money.
-You ain't doing jack for me, Piers.
-You know why you've raised no money?
-I'm going to teach you about leadership,
I'm going to do whatever it takes to be here in the end.
Now here's the new, improved and going forward Dennis Rodman.
The real Dennis is a very solid guy, but then he gets crazy with alcohol.
You let me down, you let yourself down, let your team down.
Hey, everyone gets a second chance,
so I gets my second chance, I'm taking advantage of it.
OK, this is really happening.
When you put Dennis Rodman, a Busey and a Baldwin
all in the same room at the same time,
ANYTHING is possible.
Welcome to the Metropolitan Museum of Art,
one of the great art museums anywhere in the world.
My personal favourite.
It has two million works of art
and raises tens of millions of dollars a year.
And that's why you're here, to raise money for your charities.
Let's find out a little more about you since you got fired,
or in one case, Bret, you won.
-Doing it for Mom again, Mr Trump.
-Good reason. Claudia?
Last time I didn't raise any money,
-that's not going to happen this time.
-Opportunity Village again.
I'm playing for severely abused and neglected children,
so I'm here to kick some butt.
Marilu, do you remember when you got fired?
-Yes, I do...
-One of the great memories of all time. Go ahead.
Yes, it was a Thursday...
You think you have a better memory than Dennis Rodman.
I'm sure I do!
-I'm sure I do!
-Yeah, what's up?
-How are you going to do?
I'm going to do pretty good,
but the main reason why I'm here is to redeem myself to make sure that everyone
in the world knows that I'm a very smart-assed son of a gun.
Trace, you've become a big monster in country music,
you never gave me anything.
-I'm not going to give you anything now, either.
-I know you won't.
This is our 13th season and you know, they said The Apprentice
would never work because why would women want to watch Donald Trump?
-I said, "Why, am I so bad?"
-You're a great guy and definitely different.
-How do you think you'll do?
How do you think...? How's your hearing doing, by the way?
-I can hear you fine!
That's good. Lisa, those lips went down, way down, Lisa.
No, no, I like them so much better, I have to be honest with you.
-Thank you, I'm so glad...
-I think... No, no, no, I respect that choice.
So, Bret, you won and you came back.
Now Piers won and Joan won and they're going to be judges.
-You wanted to come back.
I think you made a terrible mistake, personally.
Why did you do this?
I really wanted to come back, and to be honest with you,
I learned a lot by being here, and most importantly...
-Supposing you don't win?
-Well, I'll take that...
-Which is a big chance.
You have very capable people here. Why would you do this?
I live in the here and now. What I did before, that's in the past...
I respect it. I think I disagree with it.
You think when you win something, you know, you get, like, a sash,
maybe some kind of cheap trophy, something,
I got told that it was a stupid move to come back and I agree
to disagree with that, because I live my charity, being a diabetic.
I want a cure, I'm ready for it.
Here's what we're going to do.
Normally I break it up, men versus women.
This time I'm going to do a little bit differently. Bret, come over here.
-Trace, come over here.
-Oh, my God.
Now, I've chosen you two because in one case, you won,
and in the other case, you went all the way and almost won,
you came in second.
Two great players.
I'm going to have Trace, I'm going to have Bret
pick who they want.
-Do you have somebody that you really want on your team, Bret?
-Oh, that's a good idea.
I don't blame you. OK, Trace, pick first.
Come here, Penn.
-Sir, yes, sir.
I picked Penn first because I knew that he would be hard to beat.
He's brilliant, but, er,
the devil always is.
Bret, go ahead.
-Tough choice because everyone here is awesome.
-They're all good.
I'm going to go with Omarosa.
-Look at you, you've come a long way.
-I'm taking a hot villain right now.
I just felt that if I got Omarosa, I could harness what everyone
called evil villainess energy
and maybe get that to go against the other team.
But you've got to remember, when you're working with nuclear Tasmanian Devil energy,
that can also blow up in your very hands.
-Your body shape has changed a lot.
-Oh, thank you!
-Beautiful, look at you, Omarosa, I'm proud of you.
-Trace, go ahead.
-You're unbelievable, man.
Come here, sister. Dee Snider.
-I'm going to go Lil Jon.
-She'll never forget.
-Omarosa, so you're giving him some advice?
-I just did.
-You know what?
-I'm going to have to take that advice...
-..cos I openly know
that one of my weaknesses is fundraising, so I'm going to go with Brande.
-OK, Brande. Good.
-She's a big fundraiser.
I agree, it's a great recommendation. That's nice, Brande.
-Wow, thank you.
I'm going to go with Claudia.
I'm your last one, right?
I came here to play this game...
with Gary Busey.
-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
-I told you. I'll be the last one.
If I were a captain, I would've picked you very early,
-cos I know the real Dennis.
I was the last one picked.
It didn't bother me.
I'm going to stay here and prove people wrong, you know,
and I'm an artist, do my thing and have fun with it.
These are two fantastic teams.
Right now, you're going to your suite at Trump Tower,
you're going to choose a project manager and a team name.
You don't have to choose Bret or Trace. You may, you may not.
When you're all done, you'll come see me in the boardroom,
we'll give you your first task.
Good luck. Go ahead.
MUSIC: For The Love Of Money by The O'Jays
# Money, money, money, money
# Money, money, money, money
# Money! #
-Oh, look at it. So here we are, girls.
-I love it.
I think we need soul food, seeing how all the black people are on this team.
It's like the Republican National Convention on that side.
-All black everything.
-No, we are all black when the lights go off.
Seems like we got all the black people,
but we got the beautiful team, we're all young.
They got the dinosaurs on the other side.
-Let's be ebony.
-Everybody ain't ebony. You got to be ebony and ivory then.
So you're not going with Salt And Pepper?
-No, I like Salt And Pepper.
-I like Salt And Pepper, too.
What about Team Oreo?
-I like Team Oreo.
-You're a writer, come on, let's go.
-I know, let's flow.
Yeah, freestyle right now.
You know, if you freestyle, one word that you say
-might be a good team name.
I'm sitting in Trump Tower trying to get
a little power and I am able not to get fired cos I'm tired
of going in to fight every night in front of Trump.
A word you said that stuck out was power.
That's what I think too. That's what I think.
-Team Power, I'm in.
We got it.
-Anybody got names?
-The Invisible Witches. How about Sperm Farmers?
-How about Bread Pudding? Caterers is good.
How about Sanitation Engineers?
-The Cotton Ponies?
-Gary is nuts, OK? Gary is just Mr Crazy Man.
-Silver And Gold.
-How about Buseyism?
I mean, he's very dear,
very sweet, but he is somebody who distracts the team.
Trace Adkins picked Gary and I really hope that he knows what he's doing.
Plan Nine From Trump Towers.
There's a movie called Plan Nine From Outer Space.
-Worst movie ever made.
-Plan B's funny too, though.
I had a line in a song that said, "The back seat of my
"Chevrolet was the best plan B Detroit ever made."
The key to your life is how well you deal with plan B. That's my theory.
Plan B is good.
It's simple, it's to the point, it's on the top level for a team.
And you know the truth about plan B is also a birth control device.
Now we've got to pick our project manager.
We know it's a fundraiser.
-We know you've got to have the resources.
Our task will be a moneymaking challenge.
The first ones always are so you need someone who can really
come through with the money.
-I want to do it.
-I want to do it.
-You have the resources to win?
-Yeah, oh, yeah.
At a bare minimum, what do you know to be how much you can raise?
-Well, I'm talking about Boone Pickens.
Guess what? You're the project manager.
T Boone Pickens is one of the wealthiest people in the world.
But promising big donors puts a lot of pressure on anybody.
So Trace is going out on a limb. I'm hoping he can come through.
We're going to win.
OK, this is my idea for project management.
Because we are blessed with the only winner in this competition,
-I believe that...
-You want to fire me right now.
I think that, clearly, you did something right,
so why not have Bret serve as the first project manager?
OK, I want to be the first project manager.
I want to be project manager.
I live my charity, being a lifelong diabetic.
Bret, how strong are you on money?
It's going to rock. It will rock.
OK, can I just tell you I have a million people,
my goal is to raise 500,000.
I wanted to step up as project manager right out of
the gate, especially since I have such big donors to be able
to bring them all together and give my charity a tonne of money.
Listen, I feel the passion.
I support both of you all but, Brande, he already called
Bret out and called him to the carpet about, why are you back?
I will say that I fought for this.
Bret, you have your guys in order, right?
-You said he's stacked.
-I raise a lot of money.
I can bring it every which direction and get it done.
Honestly, I'm not going to give in and I'm not going to give up.
-Hello, hold on.
Great. As the only winner, I'm going to stand over here.
-You can't say no to a girl on her knees.
-Thank you, right?
My girl, Brande, got down on her hands and knees in front of
an old rock star, begging for it.
I wouldn't have got on my knees.
I'm kind of lazy when it comes to that kind of stuff.
Regardless of what Trump says, I think, Brande, you're really jonesing for this.
I think if you want to do this and you want to do it,
all I'm asking for is, don't throw me under the bus.
This is All-Stars. They're not throwing you under the bus,
they're throwing you in front of the bus. It's a whole different thing.
Let's raise this money so we don't have to even be...
-Don't worry, we're not going to lose. Trust me.
-Are you sure?
-Let her do it.
-All right, done. All right, let's move on.
Brande, let's rock.
We're going to win this.
Bret is truly not that bright.
Let's just say if there is only one previous winner in
the competition, then that previous winner becomes the big target.
-I'm going to kick some butt.
Almost everyone of you has been fired here.
And most of you are going to be fired again.
But somebody's going to win and almost all of you are going
to make a lot of money for your charity.
Now, on my right is a winner, Piers Morgan.
He's gone on to really great things, big success, big star.
And on my left is Ivanka.
She really has done a great job working for me
and she's been an absolutely terrific daughter.
-So, Bret, what do you think of your team?
-I think they're great.
-Who's your favourite?
I'm going to go with Brande because she is going to be here and rock this thing.
Why is she sitting there and you're not sitting there?
Because our team felt and she felt that she was going to be the biggest fundraiser
and that she could raise the funds and we're all going to have her back.
-Omarosa, do you agree with it?
-I think it's a bad idea to have the only winner in the game
and he's not the first project manager.
This is a game about leadership and this is All-Star version,
which means that you have to step up.
Well, I understand that. Bret, what do you think?
Well, I disagree with that.
Right now, Brande felt that she could bring the most funds and help us to raise the most.
He started talking about the importance of raising money for diabetes,
so I was very, very surprised when he conceded to Brande.
-Well, I didn't concede.
I said, as a team, we don't want to start dividing.
Nice to see Omarosa and Mr Trump doing the normal team spirit thing so early.
When you remember you and Piers really went at it, right?
-We did, but I'm over it.
-You're over it. And I know Piers is over it.
-You're over it?
-It's great to see Omarosa again, it really is.
-It's good to see you.
-Seriously, it's really heart-warming to see such a delightful creature
-in her natural habitat.
-Your momma should know. Your momma should know, Piers.
-I look forward to seeing you on the task.
-Your momma should know.
And, remember, I'm on this side this time.
Who cares? Donald makes the ultimate decision, don't get it twisted.
This is not CNN.
-Brande, what's your team name?
-My team name is Team Power.
-Trace, how do you like your team?
-Oh, it's exactly what I wanted.
Who's your star?
Me, I guess.
So, I'm going to make the assumption that you're going to be the project manager?
The first time I played the game, I really didn't know what to expect.
I kind of laid low for a few weeks and kind of got a feel for everything.
Can't do that this time.
Gary, who do you see as the star of your team?
A star is nothing but a self-contained mass of gas
that's way up in the sky.
They come out at night.
-Everyone here is a star.
-A self-contained mass of gas.
-What is your team name, Trace?
-Plan B, why?
It made a lot of sense to me because, at some point,
-something's going to happen...
-And you got a plan B.
-..and you got to think on your feet.
And you got to go with plan B or you're going to lose.
I was thinking that the reason you were Plan B was because you all had been fired before and you're back.
Well, he never actually pointed at me and said, "You're fired."
-No. Never had the heart to do it.
-I think I did, though, Trace, didn't I?
-Did you? I don't think so. I would have slapped the
-out of you.
Calm down, cowboy. It's not my fault I beat you.
-OK, are you ready?
So what we're going to be doing, and I happen to love these things -
You're going to be making meatballs at a meatball shop.
You've each got a meatball shop and, ultimately, the one that
does the best job in terms of selling is going to be the winner.
Dollar, dollar bills.
Now, tomorrow morning, you'll bring your signature meatball
to the Live With Kelly And Michael show and it's going to be really, really important
because they're going to choose what they like and that group is going
to be given a bonus which will be added to your total, so it's
a very important little sitting.
At the end of the day,
the one that makes the most money is going to be the winner.
And all of the money will go to the project manager of
the winning team and, honestly, for me it's very tough.
It's very tough to fire you for a second time.
-Or the third time, for me.
-Is she the biggest loser in the history of the show, Mr Trump?
You're the biggest loser. You didn't even have to walk in the boardroom.
-No, but can I tell you, ultimately, she's been a big winner. She really has.
So go back to your room,
somebody's going to win a lot of money for their charity and somebody,
very sadly, is going to be brought back to the boardroom and fired.
Good luck. Do well.
-All right, let's get it going.
-We got to get to the shop.
I want everyone to really work on money raising.
This is a money raising task. This is Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars.
You need to expect to bring it.
Can you give me an idea of how much he is donating?
We need to jump in and kick it up.
I made a massive mistake by not taking this first one.
At this point, I'm feeling that Omarosa may be coming at me.
She told Trump she felt I was weak
and so I better get it together and fast.
I picked you, thinking you'd be at my side.
But you cannot be sensitive, cos you'll never make it through nine weeks with me.
Girl, I'm not sensitive about anything.
I realise my mistake but, you know what, I'm on the team. Let's go win.
The worst thing about Celebrity All-Star Apprentice is the fact
that Omarosa is back and I don't know why because she is not a star.
I already have her scoped out.
I don't like anybody that's evil and malicious and mean, and she is.
The only thing that matters, we got each other's back
-and we go in there and
-do this thing and make it rock.
That's all that matters.
My husband, Harry, has an amazing meatball recipe.
I mean, unbelievable.
I think we should have either a turkey meatball as well as
a beef meatball if possible.
Here's what I was thinking.
It's not going to matter.
My plan is to just get people to come down there with big cheques.
I don't even know that this thing needs to be open for public
Oh, that's confident.
I would rather 15 people come in there and be able to sit down
and have a nice experience and sit there and go, "Oh, this is great.
I didn't want to open the store to the public period.
My vision is to get on the phone...
..and start calling people that I know that have deep pockets.
I don't care about the restaurant.
I don't care if you taste my meatballs and throw up.
I need your meatball recipe, baby.
-Trace was, like, "I don't give a
-what these meatballs
"are going to taste like." But you still have to serve people food.
-You got the recipe for the balls?
-I got the recipe for the balls.
Stop thinking about the meatballs.
Naked balls without sauce, you could say that.
That could be the title.
-But, Marilu, I have Harry's sauce. It's so good.
-Naked balls with the hairy sauce?
-The way you say it, it sounds so wrong.
Oh, I didn't even think of that. Naked balls with "hairy" sauce!
Oh, God, that is so fun.
-Are you all, actually, trying to make something really good?
-Yes, we are.
I just didn't feel like the strategy that Trace was implementing
was so logical.
You can make all your best plans and have your best intentions,
it doesn't mean everybody's going to show up.
What if he loses by 100? He's going to wish he'd sold a couple meatballs.
We're kicking ass back there. I'm just saying.
-That's a nice ball.
-That's a nicer ball.
-Some of your balls are a little lopsided. I just want to let you know.
-I know, I know.
This week's task is selling meatballs and you have to run a meatball shop.
There's going to be a lot of balls this week.
Censors, get ready!
She can have a choice of which one she wants to do, whether she
wants to try the classic or the pesto.
Are you cooking?
I definitely don't think that Dennis is the person to head up
the meatball making challenge,
because he doesn't really cook.
There's not that much room in there so I'm just wondering about
continuing to call and money raise, cos we've got cooks and
they're doing the graphics and you and me can keep calling.
And Dennis is definitely not the person to help head up the graphics
part of it, because Dennis doesn't even use a computer, OK?
-You know what, honestly?
If you do it like this, you can do it faster. Yeah, like that.
-I'm just trying to get the big ones done.
-That's good, right?
-No, get the back ones. Don't put it in yet. Get the back ones.
I love garlic. I can eat this just like this, a mouthful.
-Are you serious?
-I just love it.
My last time on the show, I was in the boardroom every time.
This time, I'm a team player.
Just ask me to do anything, I'm right there.
But we went to the shop, they ain't asked me to do anything.
I'm, like, "Oh, oh, here we go again." Here you go.
-You want to come roll with us?
We need as many of these rolls as possible.
-Dennis, thank you, man. That would be a huge help.
Yeah, there you go. OK, that will work. That's good.
Dennis is the loner.
He's off to the side and I feel like he just wants someone to ask him to come play.
-Those are struggling to look right.
-Oh, they're good to go.
I'm telling you, it's good.
-Who's got a little purchase, just a little?
-I think it looks cute.
I look like Chef Boyardee, I like that.
-We're going to start in the kitchen.
-We get to the shop.
We immediately dive into the task at hand.
Penn goes down to the kitchen with Marilu and Lisa and they
just start banging out the meatballs.
These are the hands of a sleight of hand artist making meatballs.
-Good. OK, what can we have Gary do?
-Look at that. Look at me cutting there.
-Go, Gary, go!
I'm amazed. I'm overly amazed.
-Gary's the bull in the china shop.
-I'm having fun, fun, fun.
But you direct him and tell him exactly what you want him to, he'll do it.
And that's the key to keeping him contained.
Gary, if Piers Morgan shows up tomorrow, he belongs to you.
-I got that covered.
If he winds up accidentally locked in one of the coolers...
-Forget about it.
-..it won't be your fault.
I'm going to be working at a meatball shop tomorrow. Can you believe that?
I can always be in the mood for meatballs.
Trace, we set him loose.
I know he's got to be the big earner.
Meanwhile, we're making calls.
We're trying to get some money in as well.
That was another 15,000 meatball.
I want to live in your world, Trace.
It comes with a very expensive wife.
I'm not afraid to say it -
I'm going to hold back my resources just a little bit.
Because, when Trace insisted upon being project manager,
homie said he's got it covered.
So why would I want to fundraise for Trace, when I could be
project manager down the road and use those resources for myself?
'I am here for you and I will be there for you.'
Thank you, Taylor.
I play the wrong kind of music.
Let me give you the information for tomorrow's donation.
You come and you buy a meatball,
and hand us over a wonderful cashier's cheque.
I'm playing for my charity, Promises To Kids.
So I'm bringing in that money. Show me the money.
Warren Moon confirmed.
I called a lot of people that made promises. I called a lot of friends.
So, you're going to come down and support us?
Playboy Bunnies coming down too.
But there are a few people that I called that are actual billionaires.
One of them in particular, this is a text I got from him,
"With me on your side, you will win."
Are you coming? Are you flying in, or are you sending it?
What are you doing?
But, in the back of my head, the whole time,
all I'm thinking about is, "Are our cheques going to arrive?
"Are people going to come through?"
I've called and exhausted all of my contacts, now it's up to fate,
and I'm ready to handle some big balls.
Part of the task was to appear
on the Live With Kelly And Michael Show.
We had to bring a sample of our signature dish,
and Trace decided that Penn and I would go.
So we arrive with Bret Michaels and Lil Jon.
Please welcome, from Team Power, Lil Jon and Bret Michaels!
And please welcome, from the Plan B team,
Penn Jillette and Marilu Henner.
Tell us about your meatballs first.
Well, we did a vegetarian meatball.
What is the first word in meatball?
I believe it's meat.
-Oh, my God!
-You know what, this is...
-Maybe lacking from the ball.
Meatball is a compound word.
One is meat, and one is ball.
It seems like you should have both of those things to make a meatball.
You are vegetarian. In our heart, we care about you.
Thank you very much, I appreciate it.
-On TV, I have to eat meat dishes all the time...
I thank you for caring.
Because in life, I really do eat vegetables.
So we did these very nice vegetarian meatballs with a pesto sauce.
-That's spicy meatball.
-And what's in that?
This is the secret ingredient, truffle oil.
-Oh, my gosh.
-It's good on everything.
The reason I'm on the truffle oil tip, it's because you could
put it on the doo-doo, and that doo-doo would taste damn amazing.
"This is the best doo-doo I ever had!"
I think it's delicious, it's flavourful, I love the pesto.
I mean, this tastes like meat.
People would love this, it's delicious.
OK, Plan B.
OK, so we brought naked balls with Harry's sauce.
Hairy balls? Come on.
There was grandmas in the audience,
and you talking about hairy balls.
They want a nice truffle and pesto meatball, not hairy balls.
And these meatballs hold together really well.
Our meatballs really hold together beautifully.
-What do you think?
-I think it's delicious, it's very good.
Well, good luck to you both, and thank you very much,
we really enjoyed tasting both of your meatballs.
We have to talk to Mr Trump, give him our recommendations.
-Get out of here!
A little more slack, a little more slack.
While Bret and Lil Jon were at the Michael And Kelly Show,
we had to heat the meatballs, get the sauce ready, get the room ready.
We had a lot to do in a little time.
There we go, yeah, yeah, yeah.
There we go. Perfect.
It would be a personal moment of privilege to take out
the only winner in the game.
For me to personally take out the only winner in the game?
I'd put that head over my little fireplace.
Can the church get an amen?
I would take personal pride in taking out the first winner.
-The only winner in the game.
-I know you would.
You definitely see the reason why Omarosa is Omarosa.
She's here to play.
And nobody plays the game better than her. So far.
Ain't nowhere where the Bible says that you need to be weak.
The Bible says vengeance is mine. God ain't no punk.
Five more minutes, you guys!
Five minutes. Five minutes!
We're about to open, there are long lines, we're kind of freaking out.
We wanted it to be perfect.
Come on in, hi! Welcome!
-OK, what kind did you want?
-I want a classic beef.
Yeah, but the question is, how much do you want to pay?
-I know it's five stack, right?
Omarosa's going to take the money.
La Toya is helping with the line.
Dennis is in the kitchen, really taking charge.
Claudia's serving up the food.
And I'm helping bring in the big donors,
because I've got about 50 people coming in with money.
I have a lot of big cheques coming in, but my one big donor,
I haven't talked to today.
I just have to hope for the best, I put it, you know, in God's hands,
we'll see what happens. Hopefully people come through.
OK, ladies and gentlemen, we are officially open.
So, we have our huge, grand opening...
We're making money now, huh?
Trace put a sign on the door that says, closed for a private function.
I don't think that I would have done what Trace did at all.
I think you could still raise money,
even in the general public, people walking through the door.
You could sell them a 100 meatball,
you never know what somebody might do.
I mean, I bet you there's thousands more dollars that could have
been raised, and I would strive to do that as well.
We're just hanging out at our positions.
But nobody's coming to the store and nobody's there.
I'm wondering, even though we've made our calls, are those big donors
actually going to come through the door and hand you the money?
I like the way he does business(!)
Trace decided to close our store for a private event.
He's just relying on big donors.
And he's covering the windows and the door with signs.
This place is closed for a private event,
that means you, you can't come in.
We just opened, there's nobody here, and I couldn't be happier.
Hey! Hey, you guys!
Got to get in here and get a meatball!
Trace, get out there and stop him!
Park the bus, get in here, meatball sandwiches, good for charity!
No! What's he doing?!
Man, I'm getting a shock collar to put on Gary.
He's getting away from me, I hit the button, zzzt, you know,
knock him down.
Stop inviting everybody on the double-decker bus to come in.
-That's my job.
-No, it's not!
-Don't tell them to come in!
-Don't tell them to come in.
So I fix that, and everything will be perfect.
Come in and get a meatball!
-He's shouting to people.
I hope that's somebody we know.
How are you?!
This is my good friend, Amy Grant.
-How are you?
Finally, Amy Grant walks in.
And I think this set the tone of comfort.
-I need to take some to Vince.
-How many do you want?
About 75,000 worth.
What?! Oh, my God!
I have to come hug you!
Amy Grant brought in 75,000 in cheques.
The game plan seems to be working.
I'll have some naked balls!
Can you make them sweaty?
Penn had Gilbert Gottfried walk in with 10,000 in cash.
Lisa Rinna gets Valerie Bertinelli.
She lays down 5,000.
-Thank you so much, Valerie.
-Thanks, good luck, you guys.
I've got Mick Foley, WWE champion.
Delivered by Mick Foley, a hardcore legend, thank you, man.
Oh, here comes somebody else!
Supermodel alert, supermodel alert.
Is Nashville in the house?!
Niki Taylor comes in.
I mean, we've got celebrities, we've got a big cheques,
we're having a great time.
I love beautiful women with big cheques.
-That's the money from Playboy.
I have to say, our team was definitely very festive,
we had a lot of buzz going on.
Not only did we have our big donors, but we brought people in off
the street to come in and join in on the fun.
We've got our big donors right here, everybody's over 1,000.
Tell me about your balls.
Yes, the gentleman will tell you about the balls.
That's a good meatball!
-Give me those totals again, just so I know.
Fennessy is going to donate 5,000.
For the entire task, I was assigned
as the official accountant for Team Power.
Being the cashier, I was in the middle of the action,
I got to see the big donations come in.
Well done, La Toya Jackson! 10,000!
Brande wanted me to manage the intake of the cash,
and she wanted to make sure it was done with order.
And that's what I did.
All right, I got him.
Lil Jon and me rushed back to the meatball shop,
and I got to tell you something, the place was chaotic.
It was absolutely awesome, and that's when I get great, man.
Anybody got five big tippers?
Come on, bring it up, bring it up.
-Great to see you. You coming in?
You going to have a spicy meatball? You'd better have brought money.
As much money as I paid you, you rat bastard!
I am destined to shake everyone down
for every dollar they got for charity.
I'm thinking maybe I could shake 500 bucks out of this man.
-I'm just saying, look at all these people.
-We go back so far.
I squeezed roadies out of money they didn't have.
-I'll do 1,000.
-Roadies keep their stripper money in their boot.
There's ones, fives and tens down in there, you know.
The occasional 20 if they get drunk.
And I shook it out of them.
-Are you here for Lil Jon?
-I'm Team Bret.
But, one thing I'm noticing, Omarosa cheered for every
-person that brought in something, except for my people.
She wouldn't even mention they were there.
Who's that for? Who's your favourite?
There's that Penn Jillette, boy.
-Hey! Come on in here!
This is a nice, relaxing meatball shop.
Piers, how are you? I am now your tour guide.
So would you please come with me?
Yeah, take me aboard.
I knew that Piers was going to come in and try to
press my buttons and get me off my game.
So I told Gary to just distract him as long as he could.
You know, it's funny, once you start making them and putting them
together, you realise, this is an art form.
-Delectable for everyone with taste buds.
Gary Busey took me down to his kitchen.
He showed extraordinary enthusiasm.
We have the meatballs lined up like this. And then put them in here.
-Boom, boom, boom.
And pull them out.
And we formed a team, like, one big unit of energy.
-And everybody just came together.
-Anyone being difficult?
-No-one. And I'm... I cannot lie to you.
I cannot lie, period, because that's not good to do.
-You know the word sin? S-I-N?
I want to take the letters that spell sin and create a definition.
S-I-N stands for self-imposed nonsense.
And we don't do that here!
Trace, what is the thinking behind the closed sign?
-You know what it is? We just targeted...
It's all about the number, you know that. I learned from you, so...
Trace thought he was copying me, but I never did that.
Never be left with an unsold meatball.
That five dollars, in the end, can make all the difference.
It's a very high-risk strategy.
I might take a nap, I'm so stressed out.
-Thank you so much for coming!
-You want to go for a ride?
Our shop was a great time, all the time.
There was people coming in, donating left and right.
You got to put your feet up there. Yeah, that's right.
Paul Teutul came down to support me. He brought his awesome motorcycles.
We've a lot of celebrities and a lot of big power hitters that
came in and brought really big cheques.
You guys, I've got Danielle Staub!
Can I donate 1,000?
1,000 for Danielle, yay, I love it!
-I'm good, how are you?
-Good to see you.
-Great to see you.
-How's it going?
Well, I just got Paul to come in and donate, Paul Teutul.
I called him. I'm going through my list... We're doing great.
-How are you doing, numbers-wise?
They just did a tally, I mean, we're probably...
I've got 200 between everybody, 350.
So, we are, we're getting there.
If you lose on fundraising, who is more to blame than others?
If we lose, I'm blaming the two people
-that raised the least amount of money.
What if you run out of meatballs when a high roller turns up?
We made 5,000 meatballs.
You've cooked 5,000 meatballs?
-She said you have 5,000?
-We made 5,000 balls?
-Oh, I lost count.
-I thought you told me 5,000 balls?
-Oh, no, no. 5,000?
Maybe 5,000 in change? I don't know.
The project manager had no real idea how much was coming in.
She just guessed.
In the same way she had no idea how many meatballs they had made.
How many meatballs have you guys made?
Nearly 1,000, I believe, it's been. It's been close to it.
Donald Trump is a numbers guy.
And I think, as project manager,
you've got to keep a rod-iron grip on the detail, the numbers.
-We've had no arguments.
-Not even Omarosa?
She's been raising a lot of money, actually.
Are you happy that her picture is much nearer the doorway then yours?
I haven't noticed.
I found it fairly baffling, myself. Can't even see you.
It's not about me, I'm on a team.
Honey, I've been a model for over 20 years,
-I could give two
-less if my face is behind the balloon,
in front of the balloon - as long as people that say
they're going to bring me my money, bring me my money,
I'm all good to go.
You guys, we have 15 minutes!
Oh, you don't know how much I've been looking forward to seeing you!
-Well, Mr T Boone Pickens sent me.
-T Boone Pickens?
We heard you were selling some meatballs?
We absolutely are.
A little girl showed up from Oklahoma State, had her
Oklahoma State orange on, bringing Mr Pickens' cheque.
-You want to try them?
-Fantastic, I'd love to.
He's just one of the most generous, charitable human beings I know.
-That's a bunch of zeros.
-That is a bunch of zeros.
How many zeros are on there?
I came here to make money for the American Red Cross.
I raised a lot of money, but on a scale of one to ten,
what is my level of confidence as to whether or not I'm going to win?
Yeah, you know, you never can be.
I'd be a fool to say anything else.
I have absolutely no idea what the other team did.
Where are you guys?
How many minutes?
All of my donors, with the exception of one, came through.
And the one happened to be a really big one.
A billionaire who said he would be here is not here.
That's one thing I just don't like,
don't tell me you're going to be here to support me if you're not.
You know what I mean? That's a thing I don't like.
But, besides that, everybody came through for me.
So, the cut-off, the money would have to be in here,
inside the store, by 2:30.
That's the absolute cut-off.
'Without my really big donor...'
Whatever you guys... Yeah.
'..I'll be really surprised if we win.'
OK, please, OK, thank you. OK, bye.
-How did your team do?
-Very well. Very well.
What did you think of your project manager?
I think she did a very good job.
I think she would have done a better job than Bret.
Why better than Bret?
She was so adamant about being the project manager.
So, she tried?
Well, she didn't try, I think she succeeded.
Brande, what do you think?
Erm, I still have hope alive.
I know that we couldn't have done any better. We had a lot of heart.
But you didn't pick your team.
Do you think that it's the right team, did they do a good job?
Is it the team that you like?
Well, I can say I definitely was very impressed
with what everybody did. I feel that my whole team, they were All-Stars.
-How did Dennis do?
-Dennis did great.
Raised a lot of money, and he was there for whatever
I needed him to do, and he was willing and able.
And Bret, who I don't think should be here, as you know.
Can you believe this, Piers?
That's like Piers saying, "Oh, I want to do it again, Mr Trump."
I can't believe it. In fact, Piers said to me before,
"I can't believe that Bret would have done this."
-Do you understand this?
-You have to respect the confidence.
I do, I mean, it's great.
Mr Trump, I wouldn't have done that, because I wouldn't want
to risk losing and going from champion to loser.
Because then you go from my position to Omarosa's.
It's not a place you want to find yourself.
That's not a place you want to find yourself.
Look at me, Dennis, I'm ignoring him. Do you see how I've grown?
Bret, why weren't you the project manager?
Well, first of all, I'm here because I had no fear,
I wanted to come back.
I live my charity, I am diabetic, I want a cure for this.
I don't live in the past, I live in the here and now,
and where we're going.
And I'm excited to be here, I loved it the first time I did it,
and it was tough for me then, it's going to be tough for me now.
And I'm here to have a great time, but I'm here to win.
-Mr Trump, can I just say something?
I think Bret perpetrated the biggest front on Brande
-in the history of The Apprentice.
Because he said in the room, he said he was going to raise
all of this money for this girl, and she listened.
And we'll see what happens, but I think he perpetrated
one of the biggest fronts in the history of this game.
-How do you feel about that, Brande?
You're saying he didn't raise money?
He raised money.
But she's saying he didn't.
Well, he didn't raise...
I think, and she was cashier,
but I believe that he was in the bottom two or three.
Did he oversell himself in order to allow you to be project manager
and support you in that decision?
It's possible, and I'll have to let him answer that.
The only thing that he did say was that...
He did say he was stacked.
What does stacked mean?
If it's a woman, I know what it means...
It means you have lots of money.
Lots of money on deck.
In my opinion, it means you have a lot of money.
More than 10, 20, 30, 40, 50,000.
In my opinion. But, as far as his performance, he was awesome.
-He had tonnes of energy.
-You are so terrific.
-Let me ask you, what did you think of Brande?
I thought Brande... Brande begged for the position.
She got on her knees and said, "I got this, I got this.
"I have the money, I know what I can pull in, I know what I can do."
However, I think that Brande, in the beginning,
she was a little frazzled.
She didn't know how to delegate to us.
So we basically threw ourselves...
So you were not overly impressed?
No, I wasn't, to be honest, no.
-With Brande as a leader?
-As a leader, no.
You think you won, as a team?
I would love to say that we won, but we have to wait and see.
How did you do?
I don't know, I thought we did pretty good.
-You think you raised a lot?
-Pretty good bit.
-You know what you raised?
Penn, how was Trace?
He was gutsy, he was focused,
he was brave, he was inspiring.
He was a blast.
But why didn't he open it up to the public?
-He didn't open it up to the public, and I was surprised by that.
I don't think... I think it's the way the game is set up.
The game is set up so that if you open it to the public and
sell sandwiches, or meatballs in this case, for 20 bucks apiece, you
still can't do as much as you can, with, as we say in Vegas, whales.
And if one whale was to come in and be slightly uncomfortable by
the crowd, you'd lose more money than you could make in a small thing.
The game is set up for strictly whales.
-I think it was very bold.
-You agree with that decision?
It would not be the decision I would have made.
I think it was a braver decision than I would have made.
What do you think of Trace, Gary?
humble, with humility.
And a single-minded focus on doing good for everyone.
And the making of the meatballs, and the serving of the meatballs,
and the kindness...
I don't think he's as kind as you think.
-See, I know Trace.
-Trust me, he's not.
And I think he's a tough cookie.
Mr Trump, he is, but his toughness can also be very kind.
OK, that's good.
I've never met a more enthusiastic meatball maker and seller
than Gary, I have to say that.
-It was pouring out of his every vein.
-It sure was!
-He was Mr Meatball.
-Naked balls with hairy sauce.
-Which is pretty disgusting.
-It's gross, who does that?
To be honest, not great.
Let me ask you guys this - as a team,
Trace is an impressive character, because I competed against him.
But it's a massive gamble, isn't it?
If you were to lose this by a few hundred dollars,
a few thousand dollars, having deliberately not opened the store
to any members of the public, you're going to kill him, aren't you?
-Only if it's very close, is the only place it's a gamble.
Because, in the end, all the responsibility will rest on him.
Who knows, we may have lost a whale, had we been scrambling and
running around or whatever. It was definitely a gamble.
Trace, who contributed the least to your team?
Who was your worst player?
I don't know what everybody brought in, I haven't even asked.
Who would you say was your worst player?
I would say it was probably Stephen.
I stood at the front door, I think, most of the time.
I greeted every single person that came in.
And I don't think anybody said that they came down because
Stephen called them.
So, Stephen, is it true that you did not bring in, as Trace said,
you brought not too much to the table?
Well, financially, not a penny.
-That's not good.
-That's very bad.
Particularly if we lose.
Sounds like you might be fired if you lose.
-You'd better hope you don't lose.
But if I know I could have the potential to utilise those
funds later on if I become project manager, then that's part of it.
See, that is the kind of ruthlessly selfish activity I'd expect
from you, Baldwin. Because, when I...
Don't get me wrong, I did make a couple of calls, and those people didn't get there in time.
But this is the old excuse you used with me. And what you've basically just said
is you're saving it all for yourself if you become project manager.
-Don't you think that's grounds for being fired if you lose?
-..and I don't apologise for it.
Fundraising has been a weakness for me. So, obviously, my goal here...
-Why is it a weakness?
-..to raise as much money for my mother...
Stephen, why is it a weakness for you?
Erm, I just don't have that kind of Rolodex, personally.
-So I do my best.
-What about your brothers?
It's, you know, money and family, Piers.
You can't even screw Alec for a couple of dollars?
-I mean, wouldn't Alec, who's a terrific guy...
..I mean, he must be doing very well, wouldn't he help you out?
For my mom? Most probably.
Well, indirectly, it is for your mom, because you have to keep going.
And if you lose, based on what I just heard, you probably get fired.
That's where it's my fault.
-Trace, if your team loses, does he get fired?
You think so?
Wow, to have one member of the team, who, literally, as you said,
I can't remember that on any task, ever.
But you were almost haughty in articulating it.
Like you were proud of this fact, and I think it reflects
-on you negatively...
-That's your interpretation.
No, but it reflects negatively on you to your team and everyone
else here that you chose to hold back.
If we win, then I have nothing to worry about.
All right, Live With Kelly And Michael, two friends of mine,
great show. I really like their show,
I've been on their show many times, it's great.
They sampled two of your meatballs, right?
So, Brande, who represented you on the show?
-Lil Jon and Bret Michaels.
-How did they do?
-Where you there watching?
-We didn't get to watch.
-There was no TVs in the meatballs shop.
Can I ask a question?
You chose Lil Jon and Bret because they're the two biggest stars?
-Because they're going on TV?
-..Bret is a previous winner,
plus he's got amazing charisma, and Jon because he's great salesman.
-Right, in your eyes, they have the most celebrity star power.
-That's why you...
-You think so?
You think Lil Jon and Bret have the biggest star power on your team?
I think that type of outgoing personality...
In all fairness, Omarosa was rated
the number one villain in the history of reality television.
-La Toya Jackson is...
What about, excuse me, Dennis Rodman,
how many titles did you win, Dennis?
-A lot! Six, six titles. Not bad.
-Here's my point, here's my point.
When I arrived at your store, there was a huge picture that you'd done.
Very well done, designed and put over the front window
to lure in members of the public.
Unlike this team, you made it open to the public.
And yet, when I looked at who you'd put nearest the door,
where you could see them most visibly to draw in the public,
there is Omarosa staring back at me.
Lil Jon is tucked away behind the balloons, out of eyesight.
I'm so proud of myself!
Why would you think the world's biggest villain is
a bigger draw to the public than the guy you select for a TV show,
-because he's your biggest star?
-Well, Mr Trump just said it
right now, he thought that Omarosa was a huge star.
But she's a villain, he said.
I have a question.
What is the main reason why you hate this woman here?
-Because you obviously a dick too.
So, you know, people don't like you either.
Erm, well, look - Omarosa repeatedly,
throughout the first season of the show, trash talked my family.
Including my children.
You can call me any names you like, you called me a dick,
I couldn't give a damn, Dennis...
Nobody said anything about his children.
I may or may not think the same about you.
I actually think you're a great basketball player,
for what it's worth, it doesn't matter.
This is a business game to raise money for charity, right?
But the line gets crossed when you trash talk people's families.
How many children do you have, Omarosa?
You, apparently, I'm trying to manage your little temper tantrum.
Wait a minute, years later, we're still talking about this.
-Dennis asked me a direct question.
-Can I say something?
-I'm answering the question.
-Can I say something?
It's years later, you come to our shop, bitching and complaining
-like a woman about Omarosa on some gossip
-Why are we still talking about...
.."Oh, your picture was covered and Omarosa's wasn't, do you think
"it's good to have this creature closer to the door than yours?"
I don't give a damn about my picture,
I care about the meatballs, for quality and the money made.
-I'm not done, I'm not done.
You have a personal vendetta from years ago.
Get over it and let us raise money for charity.
This is all very impressive, but let me just respond to you, if I may.
The reality is, I won this show, because I know how to play it.
Probably, with the greatest of respect, better than most of you.
It's like being a heavyweight boxer, seeing all my vanquished victims
lying in front of me.
And the reason I won the show, Claudia, with respect,
is because I know how to play the game.
I don't understand, Claudia, why you got involved in this.
Because if you lose, Piers is going to be one of the people judging you.
And I also don't like the fact that, as a woman,
you refer to him as whining like one.
-But he was.
-That's derogatory to women, so...
I do like the fact that you were sticking up for a team-mate.
-Are you proud of your team-mates sticking up for you?
OK, and Piers respects that.
I think Piers respects the fact that Dennis stuck up
-and that Claudia stuck up.
And you may very much go against Dennis and Claudia later on,
because I know you well. And you are vicious.
Claudia, what's going to happen when she goes against you in two weeks or
one week, how are you going to feel about Omarosa
-when she turns on you like a snake?
-Oh, my God!
-Are you going to still like her, Claudia?
-Which she will!
Although, I have to tell you, over the years,
every time she was interviewed, she would defend me - I love her.
-It's the one flaw in your character, Mr Trump.
-I know, I have a flaw!
She would defend me like no other.
-"Donald Trump is not a racist," is that right?
More then everyone saying,
"Oh, I don't really know, I don't really know..."
She would say, "What a lot of crap."
I can also say that I'm not a racist, as I picked this team...
-We don't give a
Nobody cares! Nobody cares. OK.
-Kelly and Michael, want to hear what they thought?
-Of your dish?
Are you a little nervous now?
That was important to us, that they liked our dish,
because we knew that we needed that money.
Well, they DID like your dish, very much.
And they thought yours was OK, but they liked yours much better.
-Yeah, truffle oil!
Based on Kelly and Michael's decision,
-we're going to add 20,000...
..given by Verifone, to your team's total. So that's pretty good, isn't it?
So, Brande, do you think this puts you in a big position to win?
I will tell you something.
More money was raised by both teams
than anybody in the history
of The Apprentice on a first episode, by far. So that's good.
So while 20,000 is a lot of money,
I have to say it's peanuts compared to the kind of totals we both did.
-OK, are you ready?
how much money did Brande's team raise?
And we're going to add 20,000, as you know, to that total.
Brande's team raised 230,533...
and with the 20,000, that's just north of 250,000.
-Quarter of a million, that's awesome.
That's actually a lot less than I thought we raised.
-Well, that's the number.
-How much did you think you raised?
Over 300,000 - I just went by what everybody told me that
-It's all right. It's still a lot of money.
Now we get to Trace.
Piers, how did Trace do?
Plan B, led by Trace Adkins,
raised a total
which I think is absolutely extraordinary.
So, Trace, that's a fantastic job,
that means you raised over 670,000 for your charity.
What is your charity?
-American Red Cross.
-Wow, that's great.
-You're happy about that, huh?
-I sure am.
I owe them. I owe them.
It's phenomenal. It's a record, in the history of The Apprentice.
Trace, congratulations - go back to your suite,
-you can watch on television if you like.
-See ya, Piers.
-Trace - congratulations.
-Thank you, sir.
You learned a lot, clearly.
Brande, you stay put.
Somebody from your team, sadly, will be fired.
-Oh, my gosh, a lot of party favours.
Where are the meatballs(?)
Let me just say, Plan B, thank you so much, y'all.
'Mission accomplished - I wanted to come here,'
at least knock down one big payday for the Red Cross
'because I felt like I owed 'em for what they did for my family'
when our house burned last year.
-You did a great job.
-Thank you very much.
You know, it's north of 600,000, so I'm really happy about that.
We crushed 'em.
Oh, it's on, guys - let's watch.
This is going to get ugly, y'all.
'Brande. How do you feel?'
-I'm not surprised.
So why did you lose?
-As project manager, is it your fault?
-Uh, no, because I raised...
Whose fault is it?
The two people that raised the least amount of money.
And who was that?
-I'm going to defer to my cashier...
-Don't defer to me, you're the project manager.
-You're in the hot seat.
-But you took the money...
She does have an edge. No question.
Dennis. Are the blinkers coming off?
-I love it.
-I collected the money, I collected the money...
-I put everybody's name on it. I kept tally...
Brande, I am shocked though that you don't seem to have any grasp on the numbers of this task.
The amount of money that you raised, or the people who raised the least.
As project manager, it strikes me as questions
that I would want to ask if I didn't know the answer...
-I just know it wasn't me...
-Can I answer that?
I know what everybody told me,
but the numbers don't add up,
and she was there to collect all the money, so she would have a better idea if that's the truth or not.
So, are you blaming Omarosa?
No, I'm not blaming her...
Do you think Omarosa stole money?
Do you think Omarosa's a thief?
No! Why would I say that?
Piers, is Omarosa a thief? Don't answer that.
That would be the least of her problems, trust me.
Mr Trump, not only did I take her money, but when her people came, I upsold 'em -
so if they came with 5,000, I talked 'em into 6, to 7, to 8...
Right, but how much money did you personally bring...
If you were the cashier, why are you choosing not to tell her?
-I think it's strange that you don't know the answer.
-I will tell you why -
because people were telling her figures that were just not true.
Omarosa... How much money did you personally bring in?
-Closer to about 25.
-I don't mean money that you... I mean how many of YOUR contacts...
-Well, the great thing is...
-..from your supposed celebrity status, which I've never understood...
Piers, let me answer your question. I can't answer it if you're still talking.
How many people came in because you called them, and spent money?
I was so proud that not only did my people come in, they came in with cash and they came in first.
10,000 here, 5,000 here -
they came in and they stood in front of this woman, handing cash...
-Is that true, Brande?
-There was no question about who came in...?
-Yes. Everybody raised money.
But Brande, you have no idea how much she raised, right?
Well, I saw 15,000, and she told me she raised 25.
But Ivanka raised a good point - when I came to see you,
A - you had no idea how many meatballs you'd made,
but when I said, "How much have you raised so far?" you had no real clue.
And even now, when you come into the boardroom, where the challenge is purely to raise money,
and you said to me, when I came down to see you,
that the lowest two fundraisers would come back to the boardroom -
how can you say that and then not know who those two people are?
-I'm telling you exactly
what Omarosa had told me, was that...
Yeah, but you just don't rely on Omarosa...
I know, but she was the cashier - I only went on what everybody told me.
-You know so little. You don't know how many meatballs, how much money...
-No, that's not true...
-..you don't know very much.
-That's not true, Donald.
-Bret, am I right about this?
As a project manager, she knows so little.
No - I did not get told the truth from my team-mates,
that's exactly what I'm saying.
In life, a lot of times you don't get called the truth, you're supposed to know.
-I raised almost ALL the money.
-All right, hold it.
Omarosa, do you agree she does not know much
about what's going on with her team, as a project manager?
-Let me answer, she tunnel-visioned.
She wasn't the micromanager, she probably didn't know much about
the marketing, or this or that.
Is that good or bad? Is that good or bad?
-It's her style. It's her style...
-All right, that's fair.
Bret, why did you pick this team?
-I thought they were a very strong team...
-You still think so?
I believe so. There's a few glitches, but...
Who are the glitches?
The glitches are this...
I picked... First of all, I'm going to start with Omarosa.
I want to say this -
I think she is a smart woman,
I think she is very, very good at what she wants to do...
-You picked her early.
-Yes, I picked her first.
-Did you make the right decision?
-I felt when I did it, yes.
But now, did you make the right decision? Piers thought you made the wrong decision.
I understand that, but keeping the personal feelings aside,
-I want to say one thing...
-It was his first decision, Omarosa.
Well, it's all personal, it's also business.
She's the biggest loser in the history of the show.
He had a first choice...
-..who do you pick?
-You think it's amazing.
Let me stay. I picked Omarosa because I think she's smart...
OK, so you would have picked her again, number one.
Right now, I don't know because Omarosa's gone out of her way
to do anything she can to make sure...
Because you bad-mouthed me to Piers.
Don't sit there and act like you're all for me,
and then the moment he asks you a question about me... Shame on you.
BRET: They asked you first, Omarosa...
- Piers told me point blank. - You said I was weak.
Shame on you!
-Did you say he was weak?
-I thought it was weak...
-When did I...?
-Did you say he was weak?
-You're talking nonsense.
For him not to stand up to be the project manager... He's the only winner in this...
You're talking nonsense.
But Brande wanted it very bad...
He's the winner, why be scared of being a leader?
- I'm not scared of being a leader. - OK, so why didn't you stand up?
A great leader eliminates...
But didn't you bring in the least amount?
No, I think you did.
BRANDE: Oh, really(?)
My first person walked in from the Hard Rock, brought 10,000 in - you know what you want to do?
You misled her. And why don't you just admit it?
Bret perpetrated the biggest fraud on this girl. Tell them how much you raised.
Since you brought in the most.
I don't know exactly, cos it was the wolf in charge of the hen house.
-He knows he's got a target on his back.
-Yeah. He does. They're going to go after him.
I think Bret's gone.
'La Toya, who's at fault for the loss?'
-For the loss?
-I believe Brande.
But how can you really blame somebody who's raised personally over 200,000?
Because Brande wanted this.
You have no idea. She says, "I got this, guys, I got this..."
Right, but would you have raised any more money,
whoever had been project manager? The answer is no. Right?
So then it comes down to, who were the two weakest fundraisers?
Brande, you told me that yourself.
"I'm going to bring back the two who raised the least."
But how can you do that, if you don't who they are?
I... I'm telling you what people told me,
and what Omarosa told me
-is that Bret raised the least amount of money...
-Of course she's going to say that!
Let me ask you, don't you know some of the...
-Wait a minute.
(She fears me.)
How much did you bring in?
I brought in a little over 20,000.
-How much did you bring in?
That's a lot. For you, that's a lot.
Well, they had another 10,000.
-That's a very good job. How much did you bring in, Omarosa?
-You see what she just did? 25. Just above the other two.
It was probably 25 to 30 - unlike Bret, I'm not going to take credit for other people's donations.
Brande, How much did you bring in?
Who was your big donor?
Uh, Keith Frankel, who you might know. Chad Willis...
-That's very good. That's a lot of money.
-That's a lot of money, Bret, in all fairness.
-Lot of money.
Bret, how much did you bring in?
-I don't know exactly, but I'm going to say 25 to 22.
-That sounds like a lot.
Yeah - I don't know, because Omarosa...
Considering they're saying you brought in nothing, I mean, 25,000 sounds like a lot.
-What do you think he brought in?
Omarosa, what did he bring in?
-I saw 15.
-I saw 15.
To work out who's lying, let's just hear the last two, cos I'm counting this.
Lil Jon, what did you bring in?
-'Wow, that's very good. So he's one of the best.'
They just beat us!
'You know, if you add up... I'm really good at math, right?
'You add it all up, and you guys won.'
'Well, what's extraordinary, Mr Trump,'
-is they managed to raise 310,000.
Which is a lot different than...
So SOMEBODY'S lying.
And it's not me.
The cash register had 230 - miraculously you found another...80,000.
-Then ask the cashier -
why don't you tell us what everybody raised, Omarosa?
So, I believe that Bret brought in 15,
-I believe that Dennis was strong at 20.
-That's good, Dennis.
I believe that Lil Jon was at 50, 55...
Well, he said 60, but that's still good.
-Omarosa, who else?
-OK. And then...
Claudia was... These are my numbers, not hers.
She was around...close to 20...
-Well, she said 25.
-I was over 20.
And then La Toya, in my calculation,
was about 18 to 20.
So these are the numbers that I observed.
And what was Brande?
-Uh, Brande was about 120...
I think that's very good.
But the total that Omarosa's giving us,
and bear in mind she ran the cash register,
but the total was actually 230.
So, Brande, here's what I want you to do.
We've heard it all, I think you're a terrific woman...
but you know what, it's time for you to pick two people -
everyone else is going to go up to the beautiful suite in Trump Tower.
You're going to come back in with these two people, somebody's going to be fired.
Who are the two people you're bringing back in?
I'm going to bring back La Toya and Bret.
She said 15, he was at 22, everyone else was above 22.
What, you believe Omarosa?
Why are you believing Omarosa over Bret?
He just said right now to all of you he raised 22 to 25...
The numbers don't add up.
Honestly, you've lost control of your team.
The numbers are totally off, Brande.
Everybody, go back to your suite -
the three of you, go outside, you're coming back,
somebody's going to be fired.
Trace - turn off your television right now.
What she's doing's the right thing to do,
cos she knows that he's not gonna get rid of Omarosa.
Golly... What's goin' on?!
-I hope you're not mad.
-I'm not mad.
Omarosa's gonna eat you up and spit you out.
She is a tornado.
-You survive this, you're gonna get a knife stuck in your back, you'll be the next person going.
I've taken, as a winner, more verbal abuse than anyone.
-I said, "I'm not a racist, I got a great team."
-I was told to shut the
Do you feel like Donald Trump is kind of...vying for you to go?
The way that he's talking and setting it up?
I surely hope not.
Piers, what do you think?
I think that Brande had a complete meltdown
in managerial responsibility. She hasn't got a clue how much they all raised.
So she may well have brought back two people who didn't deserve to be brought back.
I agree with Piers, I think she deserves to be here, certainly.
-I'm confused as to why La Toya came back to the boardroom, though.
-'Amanda - bring 'em in.'
-Yes, Mr Trump.
-You can all head back into the boardroom now.
-Here ya go.
So, Brande, why did you bring back La Toya? What did SHE do?
Uh... Well, from what...
-As an example...
-..instead of Dennis? Or maybe Omarosa, who you can't stand.
Why did you bring back La Toya?
Because she raised less money than Dennis.
-Is that true?
-But you don't know what I raised.
You said 18 to 20, Dennis said over...
No, I said 20 plus, maybe something over 20.
-She doesn't know what I raised.
How do you know what Dennis raised?
-He just said what he raised.
-Do you believe him?
They're all lying. Or somebody is.
Well, because I personally...
There's about an 80,000 difference.
Why did bring back Bret?
Because from what I heard, and what I've seen...
-What you heard... Everything you do is about hearing.
-Can I say what I saw with my own eyes?
First, I just want to say, Bret was amazing...
Do you mind her touching your leg?
Not at all, it's awesome.
It's blurring my vision a little right now, which is... Go right ahead, please.
He really did an amazing job.
But I only saw 15,000 come in, two big cheques.
So I'm going by what I saw.
How much did you bring in, Bret?
I'm going to say well over 25, but I don't know, because Omarosa was in charge.
Why would you trust Omarosa with any of these figures?
Why didn't you bring her back?
Why didn't you bring Omarosa back?
-Because she raised 30,000.
-Yeah, but she had no idea...
She was accounting, and she had no idea what the numbers were.
And she was very, very disrespectful to you
when you deferred to her, in the job that you had given her,
and she said, "Why don't YOU tell them?"
Well, because she wanted me to be the one to say who was the least amount.
Why would you trust one of the least trustworthy people in the history of the show?
Somebody who's the biggest villain in reality television history?
Well, she said she's a great cashier, and...
The reason she wanted control of your cash register was so that she could lie to you.
Only she knows -
and she hasn't even come back in.
And she's chucked Bret under a bus.
A large double-decker bus.
And the numbers don't add up.
The cashier's numbers, or yours.
Who do you think I should fire?
I truthfully believe
that you should fire the project manager.
Because she let Omarosa control her.
Did you let Omarosa control you?
-She controls many, many people.
-No. No-one controls me...
Then why is she not in here? I don't get it.
-But Brande, you listened to her...
-Can I say the truth?
I don't think Donald would have fired her.
Because you love her.
-Well, I think "love" is a strong word...
-But that's a mistake, because...
-I respect Omarosa,
she's smart, she's cunning...
To be honest, I have to go by credibility.
Cos without credibility, this show wouldn't have been the tremendous success it's been.
If Omarosa was meant to be fired,
I would have fired her in two seconds, so...
I mean, you could say the same thing about Bret - I would hate to fire Bret.
He went all the way,
and I sort of think Bret should be sitting right HERE on one of the shows.
Rather than over there, I think he's taking a big chance.
-I asked to be.
And I think it's great you want to raise more for your charity.
-And you're not going to do it in this seat.
who should I fire?
I would say La Toya, cos she raised the least amount of money.
You don't know that!
More so than Bret?
I worked hard too, Mr Trump.
-Yeah, she did.
-Everybody worked hard.
-I never stopped...
-Everybody. And I heard you worked very hard.
My feet were swollen, so...
Honestly, I don't think La Toya should be in the room.
I can understand Bret - I don't understand La Toya.
I can understand Dennis being in the room,
I can understand, I think, Omarosa being in the room...
-I think I'm in the room because...
-One reason, because she can't keep score.
I mean, she's your accountant, she has no idea how much...
Or maybe she DOES have an idea but she's not saying it.
I'm even further surprised that Omarosa was given the role as cashier.
Because she's great with money,
-she was going to be...
-Money for HERSELF.
She's great with money for herself, but would you trust her...
-OK - would you trust her with your money? Cos that's what you've done.
How can you make Omarosa your chief financial officer, how do you do that?
There was 80,000 missing.
We're not talking about it was off by 400... 80,000.
I would rather have Bernie Madoff your chief financial officer, than Omarosa.
-I love that.
-Can I say what I've done for this team?
I mean, I raised a heck of a lot of money.
-I raised 132,000.
-That's your one redeeming feature.
-Everything else, you were a disaster.
can I say one other thing?
When I wanted to be project manager,
Bret said that he was stacked when we were trying to decide who would be project manager.
For me, "stacked" is a heck of a lot more than 22,000, 25,000.
So, me becoming project manager,
I'm thinking that Bret's going to come in with a tonne of money. Which...
Did he? Did he?
-Not in my opinion.
-Well, you don't even know.
-The problem is you don't know what he came in.
-Let me say this.
Brande came in here, got down on her knees and said, "I am passionate, I want to do this."
-At this point I'm the team CHOOSER, not the team leader yet...
You dropped to your knees?
-And begged to do this, and I said, "I'm looking around the room..."
And even La Toya thought maybe Brande's right...
Must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees.
Dennis thought I should be, Omarosa said me,
some other people said you, and in the end of it
I said, "Everyone looked at you and said 500,000." I said, "I can't guarantee what that amount is..."
Bret, though, don't you think you disappointed?
If you said you were stacked,
and you raised, by your own admission,
somewhere between 22,000 and 24,000,
are you proud of that sum?
Well, she'd already said 500,000 and I said, "OK, I feel like I'm stacked..."
So did you hold back?
There's nothing I've held back, I gave every penny I had, I shook people down for money.
-I called people from Baltimore...
-You didn't raise very much, Bret.
Well, "stacked" to me could be 25 or 30...
How could that win you a task? I don't mean to be...
Brande, if you hadn't been project manager,
you'd have been the superstar of this team, even though they lost.
It's a very difficult situation. Cos I'm sure if you get fired now,
you will be the person who's raised the most money in a task...
In the history of The Apprentice,
there's never been anybody fired who raised the most amount of money, it's a very tough decision for me.
Seems wrong to me.
how do I go about firing somebody that raised - give me the exact amount...
132,000. She raised 132,000...
I don't want to go home.
..which is, by the way, 110,000 at least more than you raised.
-How do I do that?
Well, I feel...
And, you know, the one problem I have is...
-And you know how much I like you.
-And my family likes you.
And I think you're terrific, but the one problem I have is
I never understood why you came back. Cos put yourself in my position...
-I'm a human being.
You're asking me
to pick you as a winner again - which I thought was crazy. When I heard you were coming back...
Cos by the way, we asked Piers to be on the show,
we asked Joan Rivers to be on the show, we asked Arsenio to be on the show,
-and they're all coming back...
But you know where they're sitting? Here and here, every one of 'em.
You're the only one that agreed to come back. Which is bravery, or not so smart.
-But look - deep down, psychologically, even if you did great...
Psychologically, it's awfully hard for me to pick you again.
That's why I was so...
It was incredulous to me that you came back.
Steelers won six times, I'm from Pittsburgh.
-No, I know, but it's different.
-It isn't to me.
To me, I'm back here as a fighter, I'm back here as a winner.
But Bret, you've been a winner, you ARE a winner. You're great.
Bret, you're fired.
I'm sorry. Go. Thank you.
I cannot fire somebody that raised that kind of money.
But you better get a little more street smart, because...
-you weren't too good.
And Bret, you're a great guy.
Tough to let go of somebody that raised that much money.
And did an unbelievable job - other than she's naive.
You want to know the reason why I'm not sitting that side in this season?
You just found it!
I chose the team, I took a big chance on Omarosa.
She is an absolute manipulative villain,
and she got into Brande's head.
But you know what? I'd be back here again in a second.
I get asked to come back tomorrow - then I'd come back and fight again.
