Tonight begins a season of The Apprentice like never before.
This time on The Apprentice, I've issued a challenge
to 14 of the world's most successful celebrities
to prove that they have what it takes to make it big in my world.
How you doing? it's good to see y'all.
Stars that have made their mark beyond the spotlight.
Heavyweight boxing champion Lennox Lewis...
Playmate of the year Tiffany Fallon...
Ultimate fighter and sportswear mogul Tito Ortiz...
That was an old-school beat down right there.
Star of TaxI and best selling author Marilu Henner...
Multi-platinum country star Trace Adkins...
I don't think I've been any more apprehensive about anything I've ever done -
the apprenhensive apprentice, that's me.
Notorious tabloid journalist and judge of America's Got Talent Piers Morgan.
-You called me a fat italian.
-I didn't call you fat.
-What did you call him?
-A very fat italian.
Marketing genius and Kiss legend Gene Simmons...
it's aptly named show business - the business of show.
Softball gold medallist Jennie Finch...
Come on, boy!
Actor, author and entrepreneur Stephen Baldwin...
That's beautiful, perfect.
Television executive and Latina media tycoon Nely Galan...
The original supermodel and health pioneer Carol Alt...
I'm not carrying it all, don't you ever say that to me.
Sopranos star and Broadway headliner Vincent Pastore...
Am I gonna get whacked for this?
I've been whacked before and I'm still around.
Five time Olympic gold medallist, Nadia Comaneci...
And just when you thought it was safe to go back into the boardroom, Omarosa.
-What was your name?
Sorry, I know you're a celebrity, I've just never heard of you.
14 celebrities, 14 egos,
and more drama than even they can handle.
Get over here.
That's arrogant English bastard...
-We're in a place of business and we're representing a company...
-I'm tired of it, Stephen!
-Gone are their agents...
-Where's the producer?
-Gone are their managers...
-Don't tell me that.
Gone are their assistants.
-You know how the computer BEEP? Nope.
-Step right up, ladies and gentlemen.
This time the battle is to raise millions for the charity of their choice.
it reminded me why I'm doing this.
For that six-year-old.
My brother passed away last year,
and this charity is in memory of him.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars would put this charity on the map.
I present this cheque to you.
Are you kidding? 50,000?
Oh, my gosh!
To win this game, they'll have to rely on their wits...
it's so hot!
I need some heavy hitter people to come down.
And their celebrity Rolodex...
I wanted to do a drive by.
-Call the richest people you know...
-I'll pay a thousand each.
To bring as much money as they can.
5,000 for a water!
Richard Branson called, he's giving us 10,000.
But no matter how famous they think they are,
every week one celebrity will be hearing those dreaded words...
Welcome to the New York mercantile exchange,
the world's largest commodity exchange.
Now, we're all commodities, I'm a commodity.
Lennox, you're a commodity,
a fighting machine who really took it to a new level.
Trace, how many singles have you ad hit number one?
-You're a commodity, Trace, whether we like it or not.
Commodity is why I handpicked each one of you to take part in The Celebrity Apprentice.
Now instead of playing for a job,
this time you're playing for charity, your favourite charity.
I am here at The Apprentice because I have a wonderful charity,
I'm playing for the Walter Reed Society,
which helps and assists wounded heroes that come back from combat.
in the end, all but one of you will be fired.
Only one of you will become the Celebrity Apprentice.
Now, you are going to be divided male versus female.
You're going back to the Trump Tower.
You're going to set up a team.
You're going to also choose, very importantly, a project manager.
Mr Trump, I'd like say I'd like to be the first project manager.
OK, but first you'll have to convince your team-mates,
maybe they don't want you.
Nobody likes you but me, Omarosa.
Hey, that's all that counts!
That is all that counts, actually, in this game that's all that counts.
Omarosa, what's her name?
Whatever her name is, nobody knows who she is so forget about her.
So go back, I'll see you a little while in the boardroom, thank you.
Well, I just thought I'd come prepared.
You know, I'm a prepared person.
I brought props, try it on.
I want to help make us look good.
I already feel smarter.
I brought us props, sometimes you want hats,
things that show team unity and to brand us together.
I'm a big brander, I'm into branding.
When Nely started pulling out those props
I thought, I'm going to lose my mind.
I love the hats but if we could just focus on a name.
This is not some dress up tea party.
This is The Apprentice.
Get with it!
How about powerful names.
I want a powerful name
Like "mega", or "explosion" or something.
is there a word for like a powerful woman?
I know a lot of people like Omarosa.
She definitely wants to prove to all of us she's got a little more power,
a little more knowledge than the rest of us.
Look up dominance, charisma, talent, dynamism...
We were throwing ideas left and right,
which I love about this group,
everyone's very active and loves to participate.
What's the Spanish word for expert?
I love that word.
Can we do that?
And it works in multiple languages.
An empresario is someone who creates a business,
and it's really another word for "mogul".
Who likes Empresario, raise your hand?
OK, what about that name?
Gentlemen, anybody have a name?
No, you want something that sounds corporate.
What about the Bada Bing Boys?
Mr Trump gave us the orders this morning, come up with a name for our team
and we have a secret weapon, and his name is Gene Simmons.
What about something with a mythic quality?
Something like Hydra.
Hydra was the three-headed dog that guarded the gateway to hell.
No, that was my ex-wife.
Gene Simmons came up with the name Hydra.
I immediately thought it was quite a good name, it sounds quite aggressive
and we rather like the idea of being this savage beast.
Hydra is not what we thought it was.
Hydra had seven heads.
I think it's good, it was unbeatable.
Even Hercules couldn't beat the Hydra.
Cut off one of our heads, another one grows.
We can never be killed and we're immortal.
Correct, what could be better?
-We all agree.
So, project manager - I have gone on record that I really want to be the first PM.
I think you should do it.
I think in a business if you have somebody who's been here before,
that's an advantage we have over the guys.
I stepped up to be project manager because I wanted Mr Trump
to know that I'm here to win this game.
I also wanted him to know that the things that happened in the past
are in the past, that I'm a new person.
OK, you got it.
I'm first PM.
I'm not going to let you down.
I am very curious about what Donald is going to have us do,
because I've watched every Apprentice episode,
and the game sometimes took a toll on people.
So, I can't imagine he would put celebrities through that,
although, you know, maybe.
Team Hydra, team Empresario - did I get that right?
OK, my daughter, Ivanka, and my son, Donald Jr,
will be assisting me during this process.
It looks like Stephen and Omarosa have stepped up as project managers.
-Omarosa, do you know Stephen?
-Unfortunately, I do.
Wow, not very nice.
Stephen, you know Omarosa.
Of course, I think she's delightful.
I hope you say that in two weeks from now.
Now the restaurant business is a 10 billion a year industry
in New York City.
Now a little section of that business
but also a big business is the hot dog business in New York.
So, you're going to be selling hot dogs.
And the team that makes the most money wins.
A hot dog in New York goes for about a dollar, maybe a little bit more.
You're big celebrities.
You should be able to do an unbelievable business
in selling for a lot higher price than that.
And don't forget, you're working for charity.
The team that doesn't sell as much is going to lose a celebrity.
A celebrity will be fired.
Now let me tell you, I'm in the real estate business.
Real estate to a large extent is about location.
Selling hot dogs is about location.
So pick the right location.
Stephen, good luck.
I won't need it.
Oh, you will.
I love that name.
Did you hear their name?
Hydra what in God's name were they thinking?
I feel very confident in my leadership skills.
I'm telling you, I don't want to go in that boardroom,
we've got to bring a win home.
Carol, our first order of business is location, and you're our New Yorker.
The first place I think of, 34th and 7th,
it's just north of Penn Station,
you've got Madison Square Garden there, you have post office one block over.
I'm the only New Yorker in the group.
I picked the location right by the subway, right by Penn Station
where every businessman in New York City comes out,
and I'm confident we should win this one.
OK, ladies, we've come up with a consensus.
Let's get location first.
We need to choose a place where the big money is.
Rockefeller Center is Radio City, same place.
I have never actually had a hot dog cart.
But if you get the right location, you can make a buck.
Let's start with the big idea.
How would you suggest we get to use all of our celebrity, et cetera?
I probably wouldn't go with that.
We need to build it on solid business concepts as opposed to celebrity.
it's called Celebrity Apprentice,
and selling celebrity is what always works
People know what a hot dog looks like.
But, you know, this is the way she wants to run with it, so here we go.
Why are you looking at me like that?
The average person that's going to get a hot dog,
The thing that's going to attract them to our cart
is the fact that there's some beautiful women selling it.
Take that approach that who cares about the product.
Now that I'm managing... I do care...
Let me finish - now that I'm managing this product
we don't bank on the celebrity, we bank on solid sell skills.
We had some really negative energy in the room.
I just don't work well with people that are condescending and abrasive.
it doesn't make you want to work harder at anything.
Fine, that's the decision that's made.
I'm glad you're picking up what I'm putting down.
What do we do as promotion?
People are going to want to take pictures with us.
-We don't allow that.
-if they give us 25 we'll allow it.
OK, we'll allow it.
By the way, they're paying 100 because get a picture with Lennox Lewis and an autograph.
-I'm willing to take a picture with somebody and sell my hotdog for 25.
-Then we're going to lose.
-We're not going to lose.
We're going to do volume.
Vinny, the commodity that's most valuable is not the food and drink,
it's the celebrities, right?
We've got big, big stars.
The chance to be photographed with Lennox, Tito, Kiss.
We can charge a 100 for a hot dog.
We sell ourselves short, we might get beaten.
Ok, hold on a second.
You have to have people who has 100 in cash in their pocket.
Nobody in New York has 100 in their pocket?
Do me a favour, it's the richest city in the world.
Or so you all keep telling me.
I'm going to recommend...
Bob, it's Gene Simmons, would you do me a favour?
I'd like you to show up and buy a 5,000 hot dog.
All of the money goes to charity.
Will you do that for me?
Thank you, Bob. 5,000.
This is what we need, right?
We can make more money...
By just making phone calls?
Get out of the dollar hot dog business.
I want to know if you will buy an expensive hot dog for charity.
And I need your help because I know you're a big man with a big heart.
it's fun to listen to Gene do his thing.
He's got numbers of very wealthy, powerful people,
and we're tapping into that.
Will you guys hop on a plane
and put a cheque in our hands on the streets of New York?
We're going to crush 'em.
There's no doubt in my mind.
We're doing well, we've got some money.
it's not in yet.
Come on, guys, let's go.
Everybody stop one second.
Quarterback's got to talk, huddle up, guys.
Don't break up, guys.
We jeopardize the whole thing.
Let's put this sign down, let's get ourselves ready.
-Are the hot dogs prepared? Are the buns ready?
Ladies, we are in this business.
OK, here you go.
We decided to go with an all-American theme,
white t shirt, some sexy jeans, and a red cap.
Red, white and blue, we were American girls
selling American food - the hot dog.
Let's go, big hot dogs, the best in the city.
Thank you so much!
My first customer!
Our first customer, woohoo!
I appreciate you.
We started out selling the hot dogs for 5.
Pretty quickly we started thinking, "Maybe we can ask for more money."
OK, how about 10? Thank you!
-You're giving me 20 for the hot dog?
-I'll give you 20 for the hot dog.
This is the most I've got.
Oh, get out of here!
When we saw we could get 20, we started trying to get 100...
100, come and get your hot dog.
This gentleman is buying a hot dog for 500!
Thank you so much.
We gave things to people that only had 1 or 2.
But the people that had a lot to give, we like dug it out of them.
Like major money, we have major money.
I'm a rock star.
Ladies, Mr Trump is here.
Be calm, cool and professional.
Our great Mayor.
Mayor Bloomberg and Donald Trump paid a visit
is was the highlight of this task for me.
As the number one Francophile in this city
I'm supposed to see whether you guys can cut the mustard.
All right then.
I can't tell if these are better or worse than the one
the men were selling until I have a hot dog over there.
I can tell you this -
without seeing the men, you guys look better.
We got a lot of dogs here.
Get a celebrity hot dog, meet Lennox Lewis, Tito Ortiz...
Come on, guys, don't get a free picture, get one for charity.
-Get to ten, I'll think about it.
Yes, you get a picture of Lennox Lewis.
Give me 15, you take 29, you still make 5.
-Give me 20.
-We'll talk about the 20 another time, you want to take 5 right now?
Sir, you don't want change out of my bag, do you?
Don't be embarrassing.
You're not getting a hot dog for 4.
The reason I'm so keen to charge a premium price is to get
a load of money in if Gene's guys don't turn up.
Gene's talking a great game,
but if his people don't turn up, it's a disaster.
How much you got?
-I've got five.
-No, more, we need more.
I can't deal with the minutiae.
if they show up, cool.
if not, there's nothing I can do.
Celebrity hot dogs for charity, baby, let's go!
What are we doing, ladies?
100 bucks! I knew we'd get 100 off the people of New York.
it was shaky in the beginning, now it's going very well.
I don't think anybody has sold hot dogs as quick as we have.
Hot dogs for charity!
We've got about another hour left,
the lunch crowd just started coming in,
Everybody's working in unison, the team's coming together great.
Team Hydra, baby, hot dogs for charity.
How much you got?
-I've got a 100.
-Thank you very much, 100!
Get your picture with whoever you like.
I got a dog coming at you!
Because New York is such a melting pot,
there's country music people walking by, Kiss fans walking by,
UFC fans walking by, so we had a real mixture.
This is...this is getting crazy.
Meet Donald Trump, everybody!
Meet the Mayor of New York, Mayor Bloomberg!
Hey, Mayor Bloomberg, how are you?
Very nice of you gentlemen to come by.
The question is, is this the best hot dog
or is the best hot dog sold by all of those gorgeous women at the last hot dog stand?
I'll bet he'll never reveal the answer.
And that's why you're the mayor of New York. There you go.
-Give me two with mustard and kraut.
-Kraut and mustard.
Come on guys, you want a hotdog?
How can you turn down Tiffany Fallon, Playmate of the year?
Hot dogs, chips, water, drinks.
Tiff is not selling, is she?
Tiffany, can you slow down a little bit? We got people standing there. Just walk up and pull them in.
Tiffany, for somebody selling ass in magazine,
sure couldn't sell a hot dog to save her life.
I couldn't get her to go out there and sell and sell and sell.
Hot dogs, baby. Ready to go hot dogs.
-One hot dog for 5?
You want to get a water for 5?
-The girls are doing good.
-They got to upsell, though.
-We've got a lot of cash,
we've gotten a few big ones, but we need more.
Just doesn't feel like enough.
Omarosa didn't want to focus on celebrity.
The southeast corner.
But I figured I'm better off
on the phone and call the contacts that I have.
So, you want to get a hot dog?
-We have a high roller table.
-A high roller table, I'm in.
You're in! I figured that appealed to you.
So, what do you think?
That's a wad of cash.
How much is this?
It says right there - 5,000.
5,000, oh, my God!
5,000 for a water!
Are you kidding me?
-No! Another five?
Thank you so much. A bottle of water.
I love you, Marilu.
Thank you so much. Thank you so much.
Jenna Jameson is here!
Jenna Jameson, ladies and gentlemen.
'I am here in New York City,'
I am here to support Tito Ortiz, my boyfriend over here.
-Lennox, this is my girl Jenna.
-Jenna Jameson gives us 200,
ladies and gentlemen.
'Anything for charity and anything for my man.'
Gene, this guy's here to see you.
-Hi, How are you?
-Nice to see you.
A major deal happening before my eyes.
Gene Simmons about to get a huge cheque.
Come and get a hot dog and do the right thing. Step up and proudly
tell him how much a hot dog is worth to you.
Your hot dog today is worth 10,000.
He gets his hot dog first.
10,000 ladies and gentlemen, for a hot dog.
Some of us can knock on some doors
and some doors will open more because of who is knocking on the door.
We have a 5,000 hot dog.
We have a 5,000 hot dog sold.
'It's not the vacuum cleaner that gets sold.'
It is the vacuum cleaner salesman that sells the vacuum cleaner.
I'm the salesman, baby.
-Count it up.
5,000, this man is giving us, in cash, ladies and gentlemen!
We did pretty well. We seem to have loads of money coming in.
I keep thinking, if the girls have got one very rich donator
who turns up and gives them 100,000, we're wiped away.
I don't like that feeling.
-Oh, my God, you're so hot! You're a friend of Jenny's?
'David Wright is the third baseman for the New York Mets.
'I was thinking of big baseball players.
'Who's bigger in New York than David Wright?'
I was excited about getting his number and hoped he'd visit us.
-How about I make a nice donation for the next however many people come up, free hot dogs?
David Wright would like to make a donation and then just treat.
That's great because we only have ten minutes left.
Free hot dogs.
He just bought our cart out.
David Wright bought out the cart of hot dogs
-and started handing them out.
-Thanks to David Wright.
-We're all out of hot dogs.
-We all did so well.
Put it in the pot!
One, two, three, win!
Welcome to your first boardroom.
Mayor Bloomberg had a great time. He liked both frankfurters.
Ultimately, it's how much you sold that counts.
Omarosa, how do you think your team did?
We did outstanding.
-Think you won?
-I'd hope so.
Why do you think you won?
We had a great plan and we executed it in a very effective way.
Stephen, how did Hydra do?
Beyond my expectations.
I give the credit to all the other players.
Tito Ortiz brought his significant other, Jenna Jameson.
That was fun.
That would get the crowds. You going to marry her?
Going to get a prenup? Remember that.
Happiness is with that at this time.
-Why put the pressure on each other?
-You're right about that.
Let's hear the results. Don, how did Empresario do?
Impresario sold a total of 17,038,79 worth of hot dogs.
Hold up, guys, hold up.
You better hold up because you don't know.
Hydra, largely through large donations, got a total of...
-That's a drubbing.
-An impressive win.
That's a drubbing.
I concede to defeat.
Just an observation that I have.
I really thought the men were using their celebrity
better than the women.
I also liked their location much better.
Much more action. How do you feel about that, Stephen?
Mr Trump, kudos to Mr Simmons.
Very impressive in his ability to contact donors, etc, etc.
If we had to do over, I wouldn't change a thing.
Piers, let me ask you this.
Who would you say is the least impressive person on the other side?
We identified their weak link being "Amarosa".
Omarosa, Piers. If you're going to say my name, say it right.
-What's your name?
Sorry, I know you're a celebrity, I've just never heard of you.
You think Americans know about you?
Omarosa was identified as the weak link.
I've seen her work on previous series of Apprentice, she's trouble.
I've seen your work on that show, I can't remember the name of it.
You haven't been impressive either. They call you the British ass...
It's the number one show in America this summer, I'm happy about that.
In Apprentice 1, I remember you selling lemonade.
I remember the women crushed the men because sex sells.
You've one of the most beautiful athletes ever, a Playboy centrefold
and one of the best supermodels of all time.
You remember we were heavily criticised for using our sex
and not using our brains.
I learned that lesson and balanced that with what my marketing team
wanted to implement in this task.
But they killed you, Omarosa.
Now the combined earnings from both teams in this task were 69,324.
An Apprentice all-time record.
I'm going to give you a little surprise here.
All the money that was raised is all going to go to your charity, OK?
Obviously, that's because you're the team leader,
and we're going to do that over the coming weeks.
When the project manager wins, you take the risk, you take all the negatives, but also the positives.
What's the name of the charity?
On behalf of my mother,
it's the Carol Baldwin Breast Cancer Fund.
-I met her, she's a terrific woman.
-Thank you. She is.
You can celebrate and watch everything going on in here
from the comfort of your room.
You just watch, if you want, but go back to the room.
-We want to watch.
-You'll be watching, you'll be watching.
Ladies, stay here. One of you is about to be fired.
Who knows how to turn the TV on?
-Omarosa, what happened?
-We had a plan.
The implementation wasn't strong, we worked hard, but it wasn't enough.
Were you disappointed with some of the members of your team, or not?
I was disappointed with several of the members
-and surprised by how other members stepped up.
-Who stepped up?
Marilu came in with a sale for 5,000, and she followed that up.
You did a little bit of what they did?
-I sold two waters for 5,000 apiece.
So you raised 10,000.
10,000, that's 60% of what you raised.
And one for 1,000, a hot dog.
-Who else did a good job?
-On the technical side, Nely.
She was solid, she was really focussed and kept us on task.
Let me ask you the obvious question, who did a poor job?
Tiffany, who I think is a great commodity,
-was not a great sales person.
-Commodity in what way? She's beautiful?
She's former Playmate of the Year.
I don't know if you mind me saying this, but in that magazine,
you're presenting sex and selling the obvious, selling yourself.
But she didn't do that?
-No, she didn't.
-A few minutes ago, you said you didn't want to do that because
you were criticised for doing it. Now you're saying she should've.
Let me make the difference, here's the difference.
When Lennox was standing out, he was boxing.
When Tito was out there, he's an ultimate fighter.
That's his brand, she's Playmate of the Year.
That's her brand.
Omarosa is a survivor, like a cockroach.
No matter what you do, you cannot kill her.
She'll do anything to kill the others. Her own teammates.
Unfortunately, when I went to Tiffany, over and over again,
we needed more energy, more of a push. She did not deliver.
That's not true, my first hot dog was 50 bucks.
At the end of the day, what did you bring in percent?
I would say over...
-I can tell you it was less than 300.
-I collected a £200 hotdog.
There was no big sale.
I was disappointed she did not reach out to her personal network.
I did, unfortunately my contacts can't afford the 5,000 donation,
which is fine, but it's the point that we ask everyone...
Hugh Hefner can afford it, did you call him?
No, I'd like to save them for a different task on a later day.
There's no guarantee for tomorrow, Tiffany.
You could be fired tonight and you're saving the biggest contact you have.
You could've brought more money for the charity.
Tiffany, you're very beautiful, but low key in terms of other Playmates.
-I've known a lot of Playmates of the Year.
-I'm sure you have!
You're not overstated.
It's a nice thing, I'm not saying it negatively.
We were asked to wear certain uniform which I was happy to wear.
At the same token, we weren't allowed to use our celebrity.
-Allowed to use?
-I think the uniforms were a terrible mistake.
They didn't do anything to show who you were.
You're hiding behind hats, you've got a big hot dog on your chest.
You were advertising the product, hot dog, rather than the celebrity.
Coming from our project manager, when we said we wanted to do
red carpet, glam, all that thing,
she said we want to use celebrity as a cherry on top,
not as our selling pitch.
Omarosa, do you think it was hot dogs, branding or celebrity?
What was it about?
It was getting the largest amount of money you could for one transaction.
Let me ask you this, is that about hot dogs or celebrity?
I think it's about celebrity.
-So, Nely, what do you think?
-Omarosa made a decision.
As it turns out, that decision was probably not the best choice.
However, everything else she did and the entire thing was perfection.
I think it's about leadership.
Omarosa did display incredible leadership.
I don't think everyone can tell me they're ready to be a leader.
-You can't have seven leaders.
-Who is not ready to be a leader?
But I tell you one thing,
if I was a leader, I wouldn't be as condescending as Omarosa was.
If you weren't immature, I wouldn't be condescending.
-All you have to do is listen.
-Tiffany is toast.
She's a lovely girl, but has not defended herself properly.
-She should've gone on the attack.
-She's not a mean chick.
Why did you pick that location? I thought it was terrible.
It wasn't that...
-Did you refer it to Carol?
Wait, stop, because I don't want you to step away from the fact
you took lead on location.
I didn't take lead, you gave me lead because I'm from New York.
You gave us coaching lessons about New York.
You were the self proclaimed New Yorker.
You asked for locations.
I'm not cowering at all, don't you ever say that to me.
What I'm saying to you is I gave you all the information about
-the areas we chose.
-Do you think you gave them the right information about location?
You would know location like I would know the location.
What I gave them about 34th and 7th was...
-That was not a good location.
-Anywhere near Penn Station,
you can make the 1 sale for tourists coming around noon
but it's a very poor location.
Omorasa, I want you to pick two people.
I'll ask everyone to leave, including you and the two people.
Then, I'll ask you and the two people to come back.
My Trump, my two people, of course, Carol and Tiffany.
OK, everyone leave and the three of you will come back.
PIERS: Oh! We won't see any more now.
Omarosa, Tiffany, Carol. Tiffany's gone.
She may want to take Carol out now...
-..who's more combative.
She needs Carol. Carol knows New York.
Those girls have gone public slagging each other off.
We can disagree in here, but we have not publicly had a go at each other
and that's a massive advantage, right?
If you thought the first part was fun,
wait until you see this part. It gets better.
Annette, let them come in, please.
So, Omarosa, what do you have to say for yourself?
Everybody likes the comfort of being a follower without the discomfort of being a leader.
I stepped up. I took a risk.
We lost. But I take accountability for the plan I put in place.
I look to these ladies, to my team, to implement it and we just came up short.
What do you think, Carol?
I stepped up in every moment that I could. When there was a void to be filled, I stepped in.
When I disagreed with something, I said so.
Ultimately, Omarosa was our leader and I would always defer to her
because she was making the ultimate decision.
You don't like Omarosa very much, do you?
I have nothing against her. I have the utmost respect for what she's accomplished on The Apprentice.
However, I felt that that got in the way.
I felt she was very secure in what she was doing.
-Almost overly secure.
-They loved that I had been on the show.
-They tried to exploit me and extract information.
Now she sits there and says it's a liability.
-It ultimately appeared...
-It's convenient cos you're sitting in front of me.
THEY SPEAK OVER ONE ANOTHER
The questions you asked me yesterday... I shared information with you all
and now you have the audacity to sit here and criticise me for being helpful.
Tiffany, you look a little scared.
Dealing with two people a little older than you,
two people who have been through the wars. You haven't been through the wars, and I can see that.
-Do you feel nervous or scared being with these two?
-Not at all.
Carol, I'm very impressed with. She's tough,
-and, Omarosa, you have to say that.
-She's fought for two days.
-I think across the board, everyone worked really hard.
At the end of the day we were mentally and physically exhausted.
-Am I scared? Heck, no.
-Were you exhausted?
Don't say it. Put it out of your mind. Don't even say you were exhausted.
It was physically hard engaging with these people.
-Did you undersell relative to other people on your team?
-There's no way of knowing.
As far as Marilu is concerned, she brought in the biggest dollars, and thank God.
-Not all of us have those contacts.
-You have one of the greatest contacts.
Hugh Hefner's a friend of mine. You could call him and ask him to buy a hot dog for £10,000 for charity.
And you never did that. He'd have given you 100,000.
-We made a decision to be...
-Who made that decision?
The men made the opposite decision and they kicked your ass.
Who told you to not do that?
We were consciously aware of the fact if we remained in this competition,
we wanted to use our resources to the best of our ability.
-Asking Mr Hefner to buy a 10,000 hot dog...
-You should have done it. He would have done it!
You were holding back for another task.
-I was holding back for a bigger task.
-There's no bigger task.
In the meantime, you may be fired. You may be watching the bigger task.
I understand that.
You're not going to win by selling 2 hot dogs.
We talked about upselling.
-I learned that from Omarosa.
-I wanted them to sell at 1,000...
-You respect Omarosa.
-I do. I respect...
I think, Carol,
you in a certain way, you probably hate her, but you respect her.
-I don't hate her.
-You hate her... Give me a break!
Omarosa, if you were me, who would you fire?
You know, I actually think Tiffany has potential.
She has an open mind and I think she wants to be here.
Carol, I just think that she should probably go.
All right. Let me just make a decision
because to be honest, it's not the easiest one.
I'm disappointed that Omarosa didn't do a better job as the captain.
I'm disappointed you didn't do a better job in terms of being
a New Yorker and giving them the right location.
And I can't say I am disappointed in Tiffany because she's young
and she's against these two killers, and they're killers.
But I'm disappointed you didn't call a very good friend of mine,
Hugh Hefner, and say, "Sir, would you contribute?"
Forget about saving it for later. There is no later. This is the time.
So I say Tiffany, you're fired.
-Thank you, Mr Trump, for having me.
-Thank you very much, too.
-Good luck, Tiffany.
She's a nice person.
Unfortunately, the nicest person is going home.
Often times in business, that's the way it works, sadly.
-Got to make a pact before we go in there. We leave it in the boardroom.
-Yeah, yeah, absolutely.
It's incredibly disappointing
and frustrating to be the first one fired out of the boardroom.
I did what was asked of me.
I did it thoroughly and bottom line is, we brought in a lot of money.
But we just didn't bring in enough.
I'm headed home. I enjoyed it.
It was an honour. Onward.
