'Previously on the Celebrity Apprentice: tensions flared...'
You told me privately how bad Brande is. Oh, Annie, you didn't...
'Annie is totally two-faced and you suddenly realise'
this is such a snake.
'Back in the boardroom, the teams were tasked with producing a fashion show and auction.'
My daughter Ivanka has designed a jewellery line which is doing well.
-'And arch-rivals Annie and Joan went head-to-head as project managers.'
-I'm going to crush you, Joan.
'Melissa Rivers and Natalie Gulbis selected jewellery for their teams.'
I'll go with the necklace.
-'But project manager Joan was unhappy with Natalie's choices.'
-Some were smaller than we thought.
They will not present as well.
'On Team Athena, a clique emerged leaving Melissa feeling alienated.'
Brande, what you're doing is so smart.
Those two are...
-'While Kotu devised a plan.'
-We knew Annie would have heavy hitters. We needed a strategy to beat that.
So take the cheapest piece we have and buy that with, say, mine and Herschel's combined.
We're going to pool all our money and go for one inexpensive piece to make a large amount of profit.
'Struggling to raise money, Natalie upped the ante.'
There are poker players that would like to beat Annie.
I wanted to see Annie's reaction to having one of the greatest poker player of all time
-fundraising for me.
-'To shake things up, Donald Trump called in last year's winner,
-I appreciate you being here.
-Mr Trump, it will be my absolute pleasure.
There's only one Celebrity Apprentice and that's me.
'Tonight, as the auction draws near, last year's winner stirs the pot.'
Who gets thrown under the bus?
'And before the night is done, two celebrities will be fired.'
# Money, money, money, money
# Money, money, money, money Money
# Some people got to have it
# Yeah, yeah
# Some people really need it Listen to me y'all
# Do things, do things, do things Bad things with it
# Dollar bills y'all, come on
# That mean, oh mean Mean green
# Almighty dollar
# I know that money
# Give me a nickel, brother Can you spare a dime?
# Money can drive some people Out of their minds
# No good, no good, money
# Money, money, money, money
# Money! #
The auction starts at 8.15.
-You want that before the show?
-No, probably after the show.
-- Absolutely. - Hi, how's it going, guys?
-This is Piers Morgan. You may remember him from last year.
Nice to see other people suffering.
-I'm Piers. Good to see you.
'I walked into the Kotu war room expecting to see'
an absolute hive of activity. People at the top of their game going now for the top prize.
I'm looking to see a bit of ruthless steel beneath the smiles.
'Instead, I saw these two clowns sitting there chatting up models.'
This is like a load of Stephen Baldwins - they look good, but absolutely pointless.
-What's your strategy?
-To call as many friends on our Rolodex as we can
-and try to make as much profit as we can.
-Hello, hello, hello!
Joan, you're doing well from what they tell me.
You could win the whole competition. How is that going to work with your own daughter in the show?
As long as she loses because she should lose, that's fine.
To be thrown under the bus, as almost happened, is not fine.
-What will you do if she is?
-I will walk.
If I was thrown under the bus, my father would be disappointed in me for getting in the way of it.
- Hi! How's it going? - Good!
-This is Piers Morgan.
-Nice to meet you.
'Melissa and I were working and in walks Piers and Ivanka. I was especially excited'
because I was a huge fan of Piers.
- So Piers kicked everyone's ass. - You were my favourite last year. I was rooting for you.
'Brande was right there,'
boobies in Piers's face. Whoo whoo!
We asked your mum and she said if you got unfairly thrown under a bus, she'd walk. What's your view?
I think my mother would expect me to not take the fall.
-So I'd just keep going.
-If you lose, who gets thrown under the bus?
Annie said whoever raises the least amount of money goes in the boardroom.
- And who is that at this point? - Me and Jesse.
-I'm trying to work out if you two know how to win.
-It's all about money.
-Well, good luck.
-May the best team win.
'Piers came in and was suggesting this was all about money.'
I must say, once he left...
Hi, Michael Carlin, please.
-..Melissa was scrambling.
-'He's not in his office.'
Why weren't you doing that before?
Why did it take someone at 4 o'clock when our show was in two hours, for you to actually get on the phone
and feel nervous about it? That was kind of fascinating.
-Hey, what's up?
'Natalie called and she wants to talk to me in the next few hours.
-'She called me for help.'
-'I've never met Natalie and I'm a fan, but you're my girl!'
Right. I just want to be clear. Natalie called you to try to get you to be a donor for her?
When I heard my friend facilitated someone getting in touch with people to try to fundraise against me,
I was not happy about this.
-I suggest you turn the
-volume on your phone down cos I'm going to be yelling.
-'So hold on...'
-No, no, no. What did I ever do to you that you're helping Natalie Gulbis
-when she's not on my
It's not great if I get voted off the show because she just stabbed me in the back so bad!
-And I'm angry about it. Why the
-would you do it?
'Let me tell you what I know, OK? I get a call this morning. She tells me
-'you're playing poker against each other.'
-That's not what's happening.
-She wants money from my rivals.
-'She needed a coach. She's going to play against you.'
-She wants to talk to my rivals to get money from them in a donation task. You were
-I suggest you call her and say don't ever
-lie to me again.
-And you thought I was bad!
-You know what that's about?
-I don't care.
We heard through the wall Annie screaming.
-We're doing a charity auction!
-'I mean, the venom that came out.'
-This is a bad, bad, bad person.
-Now I'm pissed off.
I understand that you were lied to...
Annie went BERSERK! Berserk!
-No, you were just lied to.
-'She felt the tactic Natalie used was dishonest,'
which is funny coming from Annie.
-Tell me it was only Phil that you sent it to.
-'Yeah, nobody else.'
If I find you sent it to any other poker players, I'll be pissed off.
'I thought Natalie did something very clever.'
If Annie had thought of it, it would have been brilliant,
but because someone got her, it sent her round the bend.
Where's Natalie? Is Natalie up here?
Where's Natalie? I got such an interesting phone call today from Phil Hellmuth.
He said, "Natalie Gulbis is trying to get money from me. Should I donate to her?"
I was like, "If you do, I will personally kill you."
'Annie was very, very pissed.'
that I was trying to get Phil to come over and help out our team.
-But it was a nice try.
-I got the reaction, but not the money.
-You guys going to have a cage match?
-We're mud wrestling over Phil!
I definitely feel I let my team down. I hoped to contribute.
-My manager will be in the audience.
-Can't you get him to spend 30K?
I'll ask. Can't hurt. 'I was relying so heavily on that extra amount of money.'
I hope it isn't the difference.
-OK, where are my models? At 6.45 I need everybody,
boobies up, lipstick on. And we'll get the jewellery.
Today I just feel like Annie has
completely turned on me.
And that's fine. I can't raise the money that she and Brande can, but I can outwork both of them.
How fantastic is this? Isn't that a great ring?
How awesome is that?
I think I picked really great stuff. I tried for a great cross-section.
-It would be nice if they said, "Great job!" They didn't bother. I'm so sick of this
-Did I not pick well?
-It's all beautiful.
'Melissa doesn't get it.'
Let's be real. It's not only about the jewellery, which is beautiful.
It's about the money, which is also beautiful.
All right, so here's our war chest. Stuart's going to do the bidding.
'So our strategy was'
to take all of our monies together
'and have our bidder bid on the least expensive piece of jewellery,'
to get the highest profit margin.
We just want this one piece here.
The other four pieces will go to the highest bidder at the event
and that'll be our gravy.
The auction's about to start. With people flying in for this,
you worry that they won't show up. Then I saw Scott Ian, a good friend of mine,
And Andy Black and Perry Friedman, who bought the wedding dress.
And Stewie Rah Rah told Brande, "I'll bid from zero to a billion." That's an important guy to have.
Smiles, everyone. Smiles.
Are we ready to raise a lot of money for charity?
Let's see what we can do. We'll bring out lot number one.
This is the open framework diamond and rock crystal earrings.
I'd like to start the bidding at 15,000.
Do I have 15,000?
There's 15,000. 191.
Can I get 20,000?
Do I hear 20? There we go. 151. That's my friend Scott Ian, lead guitarist for Anthrax.
My friends are so reliable.
'But I was a little nervous about how deep the boys would go.'
Do I hear 25? Andy? This is Andy Black, one of the best poker players in the world.
-No, he is... 25, OK. Good.
-She's doing a good job.
We got 25,000. Do I hear 30? Can I get 30 out of anybody? Scott?
No? All right. 25. Going once, going twice...
Sold to Andy Black. Congratulations.
-She has a nice way.
This is Heather. I'm hoping someone is going to buy this one for me.
I think this is the most beautiful necklace. It's so my style.
I am going to start the bidding at 30,000. Do we have 30,000? OK, 30,000.
Yeah! All right, 30,000. Do I have 35?
-35. There we go, Stewie.
Once Annie knew where the money was, she went right after it.
She worked all the right people. Bear after salmon.
Can I get 50 from you? Come on.
I'm on my knees, begging you. 50,000!
-Now, Scott, what happened to your game after I gave you poker lessons?
-It went like this.
-Can you give me 52? It's a good cause.
That's what I wanted! 52,000 going once. Going twice.
Sold to Scott Ian!
I am ready for Brande.
'Brande comes out with a triple strand. This was her donor.'
And Stewie said to Brande, "I'll do whatever it takes for you to win, from zero to a billion dollars."
-Wait, come on. There's a recession on.
-You don't know what that means!
Then they bid against each other. They were at 35 and I was not able to get them beyond 35.
-Stewie, how about 40?
-Go down and talk to him.
But I'm cut-throat! I'm not letting a guy who said a billion stop at 35,000!
That was when I got down on my knees, purposely putting the microphone like this.
OK, 50,000. That's my last offer!
Going once! Twice!
And sold to the gentleman right over here.
'Annie was a great auctioneer.'
She really blew my mind.
Going once. Twice. She's got it!
She really know how to take money from people. That's what she does for a living. She's so good at it.
Sold to Perry Friedman. Let's bring the items back out.
This evening could not have gone any better.
We had such an exciting time and raised so much money.
Thank you very much.
You don't have to start with a minimum bid at 3,500. You could start with...10,000.
We're going to start the bidding at 10,000 on this piece. It's a steal at half the price...
If an item was 6,000, we're not gonna start at 6,000.
It's best to start at 10,000 or 14,000,
and you already got a profit margin.
I'm Clint Black and I'll be your auctioneer for Team Kotu.
Please help me welcome out Jennifer, modelling a set of matching mixed cut diamond band rings.
You get two! I'm going to start the bidding on these at 20,000.
Have I got 20,000 on these rings?
20,000. Can I get 20,000 for these rings?
Clint was not a good auctioneer.
He didn't know what to say or how to get them going.
Isn't everybody as excited as I am?
'I was backstage going,'
"I'm just gonna die! I'm just gonna kill myself."
Everybody get enough to drink tonight? It doesn't look like it.
Can we get 20,000 for these rings?
'The atmosphere in the room'
had plummeted to Siberian temperatures. It was embarrassing,
an insult to Mr Trump and Ivanka.
I think we'll move on cos I'm not coming down off that 20,000.
So please help me welcome out Cheryl wearing diamond earrings with South Sea pearl pagoda charms.
We're going to start the bidding at 12,000. I want to see some paddles up. Do I have 12,000?
-It's your call.
-I don't want to take his thunder away.
Come on, ladies and gentlemen.
We have 12,000. Thank you, sir.
Can I see 15,000?
I think we have a bid over here with Mr Trump on these. No?
I think he already owns a pair. I saw you wearing some yesterday.
I was pretty sure... No, it might not have been.
Dare I say it?
12,000 going once. 12,000 going twice.
12,000. Sold to the gentleman down here.
'The auction was really slow. Our strategy was'
to put all our money into the least expensive piece.
It didn't make the auction appealing and I'm sure that was hard for Ivanka to watch.
-Joan, we might want to send out our go to item to fire them up.
Our piece was the fifth piece, but I ran to Joan and said, "We need to put it out
"to at least get these people ready to put up a little money."
-We're going to bring Valerie out...
-Valerie isn't ready. Hold on.
We're not bringing Valerie out just yet. And instead we're bringing Alex out.
Alex is wearing oval black onyx earrings, encircled with diamonds.
I don't even want to tell you what I'm starting at. 40,000. You'll never find earrings for that.
-40,000 for these wonderful earrings.
-It's a black, beautiful onyx ring.
It's a beautiful black onyx and diamond ring that women would drool over. Start walking.
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
Please, walk on down.
-That's actually a cardboard cut-out of Joan Rivers.
-Show it off! Show your hand, move your hand.
Up, down! Come on, bitch. Go for it. Sell it!
We have 40,000? 40,000.
Can we see 45,000?
45,000. We have 45,000, folks.
Then everybody perked up. Finally!
Can we see 70,000? Somebody... 70,000.
Can we see more? Can we see 75,000?
75,000. Mr 184. Can we see 80,000?
We've got 83,500 going once. 83,500 going twice.
-83,500. It's yours, Mr 185.
'I watched Donald and Ivanka'
and they were thinking, "This team is rallying! They're raising money," and everybody started to perk up.
Out comes Valerie. Valerie is modelling pave diamond long crossover earrings
with black spindle drops. We're going to start the bid on these earrings at 20,000.
-Can I hear 20,000?
-Valerie is bulimic. Just to cheer the women up.
All the women, you can like Valerie because she's bulimic. She's been throwing up all afternoon.
We don't have to be jealous of Valerie. We can bring her into our circle and say, "Poor Valerie."
Joan, people love her and she's quick on her feet.
What she says, what she does. She was absolutely great.
-Going twice. Sold!
She livened it up. Everyone got excited.
I think pooling the money together on one piece was very smart.
We got the most out of where our money went.
The long run, and the short run, is how much did you make?
Thank you all very much.
I have to say, Annie, you and Joan did a really great job.
-That was really a great job.
-Who picked your jewellery?
-Melissa did. She did a fantastic job.
It showed beautifully from the stage. The donors loved it. I want to get that pendant.
-Were you involved in it?
-No, she went over alone.
-I think she did a fantastic job.
-I thought what is each person good at.
-She's got good genes for this.
-You picked large pieces that were visible from anywhere in the audience.
-Was that on purpose?
Yes. I wanted a higher perceived value and picked things that I felt would read that way.
Joan, you trained her well.
-Annie, who was the weak player on your team?
-If you have to choose somebody. Every team has a weak player.
-Then I'd choose on money raising.
-Jesse and Melissa brought in the least money, but...
-Jesse, you're a nice guy. I won last season
-despite my many inadequacies.
-Yeah. Psychological flaws.
But you're all aware that I won because primarily I raised the most. I was shameless about it.
This was all for great charities.
But you are not playing that game. You're married to one of the biggest stars in the world.
-Is there not a way through her circle of Hollywood pals that you couldn't get a load of money?
-I was trying.
-Your wife says no?
-I didn't ask my wife.
-Er, I don't mix business and pleasure.
-But you must know los of movie stars.
I don't. A couple.
-Have you asked them?
-I'm curious. It just seems obvious.
In the end, it's all for charity, you know?
-Joan, what did you think of your team?
-I'm crazy about my team.
Didn't you think was a little bit on the long...? I was going to say, "Clint, enough already."
-When you got involved, it seemed to speed up a little bit.
-Well, you know me, Donald.
Why weren't you out there from the get go? You're incredibly knowledgeable about jewellery.
-Why weren't you out there?
-Because I did the fashion part of it
and Clint said "I would like to do the auctioneering." And I like my team to all participate.
Ivanka wasn't happy with the pieces your team picked.
It was hard for bidders to see from the back seats and it made me look a little bad.
-When nobody was bidding.
-I tried for the opposite effect.
-Who picked the jewellery? Who actually picked it?
So that's a little bit of a mistake, based on what Ivanka is saying.
It wasn't anything wrong with the jewellery. You didn't have momentum.
We took all our donations and put them into one package, which we were allowed to do.
-But you ended up not selling one.
-That wasn't the task.
Our task was to get the most money and do that as well as we could.
-We were not told we had to sell all five.
-So, Joan, do you think it's OK in this scenario,
where I contributed jewellery, that you know only one piece will be bid on out of five?
And the other was a free for all? You think that's right to me?
Absolutely. I'm a jewellery designer. The task was to make the most money.
It wasn't to embarrass you.
But you turned the auction into a complete farce. Clint was left doing his one-man show
for what seemed like days, weeks, months. I could feel the will to live seeping out of me.
You're representing the Trump family in a show run by Donald Trump,
-so the least you should do is show some basic respect to Ivanka and her work.
This is a critical point. We didn't have such a great war chest
that we could spread it out over five and maintain the profit margin.
-Why didn't you have a bigger war chest?
-Because you didn't give us your Rolodex.
-I don't know Richard Branson.
-Come on, Joan. You've been in showbusiness...
-A long time. You know everybody.
-Yes, I do.
-Joan, you know the same people I know.
-Shall I give you a list?
-You know who we're talking about.
You're damn right I know.
-I thought you might have called some of them.
-I called a lot of them.
-May I jump in there?
-It's a private conversation about the people you both know
who have turned us down. I think you would be very surprised.
-Why are you defending the opposition?
-It's my mother.
-You were very disrespectful.
-You. Your tone was getting a wee bit aggressive.
-Not at all.
-Going on about who she knows.
-It's hard not to have a hair trigger on certain topics.
-Annie, what's your take on this?
-I'm not interested in Annie's take.
-But I am.
-Unbelievably, Joan, that's all that matters.
I think it was very disrespectful to Ivanka to not sell every piece.
You can take the job literally about raising money. So why not hand the jewellery to my donors
and have them give me the money? It's not just about that. You've to be respectful to what you do,
respectful to the charities, the task, to Ivanka...
You are a despicable human being! A perfect poker player.
This woman would spit and drown her mother in it to get another step.
-Oh, now it's the "wow" Annie.
This is 16 different personalities. This is a girl who told us for two weeks how she despised Brande...
I never said despise. Have we talked about this?
-How Brande should go off the team and now Brande's her best friend.
-Did you say those things about Brande?
-We've talked about it...
-I never said I despised her. I said I felt, as I said to you, she had become a weak player.
-I told her to her face.
-You couldn't wait 'til she went.
She was dragging us down, Joan. I then talked to Brande and she was the superstar on my team.
And the other day in the boardroom when I expressed to you
-what I felt Brande's downfall was...
-I believe I expressed it.
-But then I expressed it.
-It's always her.
Thank God Einstein's dead or she'd take the Theory of Relativity! "I did this, I did that.
"The gay boys love me. I did this, I did that."
You're a smart woman, but not that smart. Your ego is so beyond you.
-Is ego a big factor in being a championship poker player?
-You need a lot of confidence.
-Ego gets in the way.
-Then you'll fail.
-I just want to finish one thing.
-Business is business.
-And we're in a competition.
-The personal attacks interest me.
-Isn't it amazing...?
You've attacked all of us, but you leave them at the door here and you're so nice.
-She does seem nice to me. She does seem nice.
-So was Hitler at Buchenwald.
-So was Hitler?!
-Have you ever been compared to Hitler before?
Can I just ask Melissa, in light of your mother's comments, which make me look like a tea party,
-do you still think I was being disrespectful to her?
-On a scale of disrespect...
-Piers, I completely withdraw
-and hope you have children who love you.
-I have three lovely children.
-I think that's great, Melissa.
I just want to say that whatever anybody here on my right might think about me,
-when I call somebody and ask them to get on a plane at six in the morning, they do.
-They all came.
Joan, that's an interesting point. Herschel, wait.
-It is true. She was the one. She had a room full of people.
She said everybody she called gave her money. I brought in about 55,000.
-I'm only talking about the person to my immediate right.
-You did a great job.
But she actually had people get on planes.
-That's because, I guess, they like her.
-It's wonderful. We also heard a conversation yesterday
about someone you called that Annie knew. Tell us what it was.
I was having some issues with my friends, so I was trying to put feelers out
to find out if any poker competitors might want to go up against Annie. I found one individual,
-the best poker player in the world, named Phil...
-Is he the best?
-No one's even close.
I reached out to Phil and asked him if he was willing to bid for charity and Annie was on the opposing team.
Originally, he had said yes. I don't know how Annie found out...
-He called me immediately.
-She was not very excited.
-But why should she be excited?
Why are you telling this story? They tried to screw you...
-And I found out.
-And stopped it. Annie wins. Why are you telling a story that is so self-defeating?
-There was a phone call made, Annie was screaming...
-She doesn't look like a screamer.
-Oh, my God.
-But Annie was effective. Even if she had to yell...
-Melissa, hold it. You are on her team.
So you're torn. You're on Annie's team, but you're saying, "My God, she's a screamer!"
-Wait, wait, you're on her team.
-But you're protecting your mother.
I'm not saying Annie was wrong to be upset, but it was a very angry phone call.
-I'm just playing the Fact Police.
-Why are you saying this? I find this dynamic fascinating.
-You would speak up and knife your leader...
-She didn't knife her.
-..to suck up to your mum.
-That's the way it looks to me.
-I don't need to suck up to my mother and I resent that.
-Why do it?
-Cos I love her!
-What's that got to do with it? It's business.
-You're in the opposing team.
-The truth needed to come out.
-What is the truth?
-Annie had a very yelling, angry conversation.
That is the fact. Let's not bicker over it.
-Is Annie a bad person?
-I think Annie plays the game brilliantly.
No, no. Is Annie a bad person?
-Is Annie different from the person I'm looking at
-who seems so sweet and nice?
-Yes. And I understand Annie and accept who she is.
Is she different than in the boardroom? Towards me? I believe so. Does that make her a bad person?
No. Is she a brilliant game player? Yes.
-Jesse, do you think it's a liability to have Melissa on a team not paired with her mother?
I feel like we just re-enacted the last family reunion I went to.
-I love Jesse James.
-Melissa's been very loyal to her mother and I respect that.
OK, let's get the results. Ivanka, how did Kotu do?
Kotu raised an impressive 92,000, most of which was raised through one piece.
-That's a lot of money. And don't forget that's in the form of profit.
That's profit. Piers, how did Athena do?
Athena raised a total profit of...
£153,000...er, dollars. Not pounds, obviously.
-Pounds would be more.
-Not at the moment!
-This is America.
-I know where it is.
-That's a little shot, Jesse.
-I'm just kidding.
-He's allowed to dish it back. I like that.
I will say this.
245,000 is a record on Apprentice.
That's for just a period of one week. And it's going to go to your charity, Annie.
I have to say you are more than double what last year was at this time.
You're into the 600,000, 700,000. Almost 700,000 has been raised for charity so far. Pretty good.
-What's the name of your charity?
They provide aid and protection to refugees in Sudan and Congo.
-Congratulations. Great job. 245,000 is a lot of money. Go.
-It was very uncalled for. Tell your mother not to get so personal!
-I did! I couldn't let it turn
-into a bloodbath with my own parent!
-She started it!
-I know! And I tried to end it!
-She started it.
-Annie, I tried to end it.
'To come out with what Joan said:'
I'm nasty and I'm Hitler. She was demonstrating the very qualities she accused me of.
She's 76. I do not control her.
-I can truthfully say I hope she gets
-Well, I can understand.
-If someone called me despicable...
-Hitler! 'She may never speak to me again as far as I'm concerned.'
-That woman is completely
-dead to me. 100%.
Clint, who was the weak player on your team?
You know, the interesting thing that we have here now is there is no weak player.
As we began this game, you could point to the obvious...
You could say whoever picked the jewellery. It wasn't as big, as flashy, as showy.
Beautiful close up, but it doesn't show as well from the stage.
Why didn't Joan pick the jewellery? She's the best at it in the world.
-Why didn't Joan pick the jewellery?
-I think that Natalie has great style.
-She does have great style.
She's worn beautiful jewellery all these weeks.
She has a young point of view. Ivanka's young.
-Joan, your daughter picked large, visible jewellery.
-I didn't realise that when I sent her up there.
I knew that she would pick very pretty things.
I did not give her instructions. I thought she would find wonderful young pieces of jewellery.
-And they're beautiful things, but they were very hard to see.
-Yes, they were.
And so different from Melissa's.
-Were you happy with what Natalie picked?
-I would rather she'd come back with huge, big things.
-So you weren't happy.
-You liked the other team's jewellery better.
When I saw the other team's, perhaps I'd have picked other things.
Joan, if you were me, who would you fire?
We are such a good team together
-and everybody wants...
-I've never seen you cry before.
-I like these people so much.
-You have a big heart.
-It just kills me.
-Because you'll lose somebody? Somebody has to go.
-Would you ever believe you'd be crying over losing Clint?
That's why she's crying!
No, but he's such a good guy. You know, he's an honest guy.
-Have you gotten close to Herschel and Natalie also?
-Herschel, I wish you would marry Melissa.
-He might do it.
-I'm begging him.
-I keep saying.
-It's an off-screen romance.
-Natalie is so sweet.
-What you see is what you get.
-So you're upset that somebody has to go.
-It's killing me.
I'm so fond of all of them.
I am fond of all of you. I know all of you and I'm fond of you. It's hard.
But you failed as a team and somebody has to be fired.
Although Herschel raised the most money. Herschel, you raised 55,000. You did the best job.
-It's hard to say, "I have to fire Herschel."
-We didn't win.
I must be honest with you, Joan.
As far as Clint, in terms of the auctioneer,
he was really not good at what he did.
You could see that and you came into the picture.
But Clint really isn't the reason that you lost
because whether he was good or not, nobody could see the pieces he was selling.
Natalie, with all of the rich golfers you play with and want to play with you so badly,
weren't you able to raise any money?
I'd asked some individuals and I really thought I'd be able to draw a lot more money.
-And what happened?
-And they all said "no".
OK, look, I have to go with something. Natalie, you weren't an effective fund-raiser.
And ultimately, you picked the wrong jewellery.
So, Natalie, you're fired.
-Sorry. Thank you.
-Just drop it, Annie!
-When your mother calls me "Hitler", you might want to jump in.
-Melissa, I love you and I enjoy being on your team.
-He just fired Natalie.
-He fired Natalie?
Good luck, everybody. Thank you. Go.
-You did a good job, Joan.
-A great job.
-Thank you. Thank you.
She's got a big heart.
-Oh, my darling!
-I love you.
'I was really proud of our KOTU team. We raised 100,000 in one night at the charity auction.
'Working for Donald Trump was great.'
He was the first boss I've ever had and the first firing I've ever had.
-She made bad choices on the jewellery and didn't come through with the money.
-Oh, my God!
I'm shocked right now.
Do not throw fuel on the flames. I've just been yelled at and I'm yelling back.
Please walk in and do not throw flames on a very volatile situation.
-I won't do anything.
-I'm this far from quitting.
I don't want to have a heart attack over Annie.
It's just stupid. It's such a waste of time.
But I am going to jump in there full force because we've just got to win this one.
It's so unfair.
We worked like a terrific team and it's just very sad.
As it gets smaller and smaller, it gets sadder and sadder because we had a very happy team.
'I'm extremely upset about the personal comments.
'She can't say the things she said about me and expect me to walk away from that.
'She called me "Hitler". She might want to look to herself because she's a crazy bitch.'
That woman had better not speak to me again!
Congratulations. That's a lot of money.
We're playing for charity and your money is going to a fantastic cause.
- So there is always an upside... - I'm giving it to the Hitler Fund.
-Oh, Annie, calm down.
-Joan, don't speak to me. Seriously.
-"Don't speak to me"?
-She can never speak to me again.
-You've made my day.
-Hi. Ken Bacon.
-Hi. Annie Duke. Nice to meet you.
-Come on in.
My charity is Refugees International and Ken Bacon from the charity
is so committed to that charity and has done amazing work.
Refugees are really a sign of instability.
A world with fewer refugees is a more stable world, a safer world, so we all benefit.
I'm extremely committed to this. I'm very proud to represent you.
-We held an event the other night where we sold some beautiful jewellery, so that's for you.
Holy mackerel! This is great!
This is amazing - 245,000 dollars!
I've never had a cheque this big.
'This was a great surprise'
and a huge boost for our work.
-This is really great. I'll think of you out on the poker tables earning money for refugees.
-ALL: Good morning.
We're standing in my dining room at Trump Tower.
Now, I love food and what's happening, especially with the economy not doing so well,
people are going to frozen foods.
It's nutritious, it's fast, it's good.
One of the great makers of frozen foods is Schwan's
and with me is a great executive, Scott McNair of Schwan's.
Scott, what would you like them to do?
For over 50 years, Schwan's has delivered restaurant-quality food to our customers' doors.
Your task is to create a new signature meal for Schwan's LiveSmart brand.
LiveSmart is our health and wellness platform. We look for healthy solutions for the family.
Additionally, you will create a new marketing campaign for Schwan's LiveSmart brand.
-You'll be judged on taste, originality and then lastly, your marketing campaign.
-Thank you, Scott.
Now, Ivanka will be with me
and Joe Kernen from CNBC's Squawk Box.
He's probably the most important financial reporter there is,
so it's really nice to have Joe and Ivanka. They'll be working with us.
We're going to Fresco By Scotto, one of my favourite restaurants.
Scott and his executives are going to eat your food and if he likes it, great.
If he doesn't like it, you lose.
Who are your project managers?
Jesse, finally, you're project manager. Good luck.
'The time was right for me to be project manager.'
My job will be to keep the in-fighting to a minimum,
so we can focus on doing a good job.
KOTU? Herschel, you'll do it again. Great job.
'Joan wanted me as she's not comfortable with Clint.'
Clint's not comfortable with Joan.
'But there's only three of us, so we've either got to get along or this is not going to work.'
The project manager of the winning team will get 20,000 for their charity.
The losing team will go to the boardroom. Somebody will be fired. OK? Thank you. Have a good time.
Hey, how are you?
-How are you doing?
-Hey, Herschel. Bob.
'The judges were the executives from Schwan's and they were judging us on taste, originality'
and how we'd present it in a marketing situation.
Primarily, what we do is deliver frozen food to customers at their door at their homes.
We have people called CSMs which are Customer Service Managers.
They ultimately sell the product.
-CSMs are very important?
-Hugely important. They're the face of our company.
We're looking for something unique, not something we do that's better.
-It's got to taste great.
-Yeah. You can have the best marketing campaign. If it don't taste good, who wants it?
LiveSmart is all about eating well and living well.
And it has to do with calories, fat and sodium.
Keep in mind that all the consumers are looking for convenience,
so you make up this new whatever and then how do we message that out to our consumer?
'These guys were pretty forthcoming on what they wanted, but they have a particular way of doing things.
'I don't want to re-design their whole company,'
just create a new meal for their line.
-Good luck. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
-Thank you very much.
-Nice meeting you. Thanks.
-Let's pin down what we're going to make.
-Here are their top sellers.
The Italian-style meatballs is their number two best-seller.
'We started researching the Schwan's brand. On their regular menu,'
Italian-style meatballs are one of their best-sellers.
'It's not on their low-fat menu.'
-I'd do turkey meatballs.
-It doesn't sound like, "Wow, got to eat that!"
Turkey meatballs are almost always dry. I make moist turkey meatballs.
What's that new item that no-one's hitting on?
We can do penne pasta with mini turkey meatballs.
'Annie was obsessed with turkey meatballs.'
Annie mode is she is going to get her way, come hell or high water,
and to get her to give up on an idea is impossible.
What do you want to eat if you get home at nine o'clock at night?
Spaghetti and meatballs.
What's the next best alternative? Healthy, though.
-I like a chilli or a soup.
-Meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
Also with the turkey meatballs, you make it with gluten-free pasta.
That adds a new aspect to their LiveSmart line. People are really interested in gluten-free.
Annie's dead set on making what she's going to make,
but I'm trying to be a leader and keep the drama to an absolute minimum.
We've got a bunch of good ideas. We'll make three and pick the tastiest one that we all agree on.
We're doing the turkey meatballs with pasta, the chilli and meatloaf with sweet potatoes.
-So if you guys want to cook, you two...
-You and I can do marketing.
-I'll handle marketing stuff.
'Given the tension, I chose to keep Melissa with me
'and send Brande with Annie to cook.'
If there are two strong-willed girls clashing in the kitchen, guess what will suffer - our food.
I don't want to have too many cooks in the kitchen.
Does anyone want to cook?
Don't even look at me.
I do a couple of things really well, but not a lot of things.
So I'm going to be the chef.
-I'll either do sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes. Which one?
-You're our chef. What do you think?
This is like the task from hell for me.
'My cooking is so bad,'
Melissa's first words were, "Room service."
Miss Rivers, look at this. It tells you what is good.
"99% of customers would recommend this product to a friend."
-It's a skinless chicken breast. And look at the rating on it.
-That's a great rating.
So we know now it's going to have to be a skinless chicken breast.
Even though it's a popular item, my concern is that this isn't going to be original enough.
I'm staying with the chicken breast because their consumers prefer chicken breast over anything else.
'I wasn't convinced chicken really was the way to go,
'but people think all Clint wants to do is argue,
'so I've reduced my debating to nil.'
I suggested a dish I have at home all the time - ginger soy chicken.
If you pan-fry that chicken, slow-cook, pan-fry that chicken
in a ginger soy sauce, it'll be delicious.
'I wanted to stay with skinless chicken breast, but I'm not a meat eater, so I needed a recipe.
'Clint came up with his wife's recipe.'
It was very simple and I thought it was a great idea.
-How's it going?
-Good. How are you?
-Good. Good to see you.
So explain to me what you are doing.
-Herschel decided to go with a recipe that we make at home.
-A soy ginger sauce and slow-cook the chicken breast, so it'll absorb as much of that sauce as possible.
-You must know a little bit about nutrition.
-Is that why you're project manager?
-No, I'm project manager because we've been losing.
'KOTU's track record at this point sucks and I think Herschel is pretty intent on changing it.'
Do people like soy ginger chicken? My father would never eat it, but I would, so we'll see what happens.
-Bye, guys. Have fun.
OK, we got sweet potato, chicken, green beans. We got three items right here.
-You need a dessert.
-The dessert I'm thinking we'll do is almost like a parfait.
All you need is frozen yogurt, some berries and all of that stuff.
That'll be pretty easy.
Oh, I hope our stuff tastes good.
'I worked with Jesse on all the marketing'
while Annie and Brande hit the kitchen.
So we could divvy up, two and two.
So what do we want to do for the marketing?
You know, a little handout, a little trifle, you know what I mean?
Do we want to design something for the website
or any of that kind of stuff?
Oh, I think we should touch on...
'I kept saying to him, "Jesse, tell me what you want me to do."'
I felt it wasn't clear what the campaign was.
-Hi. How are you?
-What did you come up with? What are you thinking?
-Three items and we'll pick the best of the three.
-What are the three?
-We have turkey meatballs, we're doing a chilli with a cornbread and a meatloaf.
-Now we've just got to figure out someone who can cook all three of these.
-We have that.
- Hello. - Gosh, we have all the groceries.
- You're cooking all these things up? - She's helping me.
Do you think there's a premium put on something innovative or new?
- We have gluten-free pasta. - Who would eat gluten-free?
The people who need gluten-free have wheat allergies or coeliac disease.
I think it's good that they have a real cook,
but if the meal tastes like crap,
I'd say that Annie was talking a good game,
but couldn't deliver where she needed to.
I'm doing the olive oil. I'm going to soften the onions up.
'For this task, we were given a Schwan's food specialist.'
They would make sure that the recipes were within the guidelines.
-Were you surprised when I asked if I can toast it?
-You know how to prepare your spices.
-I'm fast with a knife.
'I had to do three different savoury dishes.
'You have to have someone who's a fast cook and I'm a fast cook because I've got to cook for four kids.'
I can knock out relatively complex dishes really quickly.
Brande, see how fast I am? The chefs are impressed with my knife work.
Annie has a lot of energy, likes to talk, talk, talk.
I can knock three dishes out in the time that they can knock one out.
Look! That took me two minutes.
BRANDE: 'I've been irritated by her. Not many people could spend a day with Annie.'
-I'm the total woman. I can cook, I raise my children, I work hard. And I give a good...
We just buy plain yogurt,
then I think the executives say, "This we can't freeze and then thaw."
'I wanted the frozen yogurt dessert, but it had to be made from scratch,'
so why not use just plain yogurt?
That's what I'm saying. You use frozen yogurt,
but we're making a dessert which is our own, using yogurt,
but it's going to be frozen yogurt because that's what you use anyway.
-But it's like saying...
-That's what I'm saying.
-It's like saying we're going to serve chicken, but we'll use beef for this presentation.
-No, it's not.
It's two different things. You argue a lot about everything, Clint.
'Clint is arguing with me about the dessert. Everything he knows is better than what you do.'
But I have to take responsibility for the meal.
-I'm in the food business.
-If you want to use yogurt...
-You argue about everything.
-I'll back you up if you want to use it.
-I bet my food company makes more than your record company.
'My argument about the yogurt... I wanted to protect my project manager.'
If the executives say, "This is ridiculous,
"this dessert can't be frozen and thawed successfully,"
maybe what I'm supposed to learn from this is that this is a game - let him hang himself.
He's putting all this special love into the sauce too.
It will make the chicken unique.
'Even though I may have delegated what I wanted everyone to do, Clint decided he wanted to cook too.'
That's tasting right.
He wanted to do the whole test. We should've made him project manager.
'Originally, Clint said his wife had a lovely chicken recipe.
'But it was real salty.'
It was not a great sauce.
'My greatest concern is since I don't eat chicken,
'I had to rely on Joan to say what was good and bad and she was honest.'
-That's very salty.
'It was so horrible. Think of drinking a glass of soy sauce'
and then licking a piece of chicken.
It was soy sauce garnished with chicken.
It was the reverse of what we wanted. It was just terrible.
-We want a kiss of soy. We don't want...
-That's not the recipe, though.
-It doesn't matter.
If you change the recipe, it's no longer soy.
Oh, you can call it "soy" as long as it smells like soy.
-Can we add like an orange flavour to it?
-Well, we have oranges. Let's make our own juice.
Clint's terrible soy sauce recipe didn't work,
so we've got to fix this.
So we came up with putting orange juice in it.
-Yeah, I think it'll help.
-I think it has.
So by adding orange juice to the soy sauce, it made a delicious new kind of chicken.
-Asian orange chicken.
-I like it.
-Something smells good.
-This had better be good or it's your ass!
'Once the cooking was done, Annie and Brande wanted me'
to make the final decision
on which item we'll go with for our new meal.
I want you to taste the meatloaf. I think it's sublime.
The meatloaf was good, really clean-tasting, but I didn't like it.
OK, so here is the chilli.
-It smells good.
Jesse James likes my chilli.
As soon as I tried the chilli, I was like, "Chilli, chilli, chilli, chilli!"
It's good chilli, man. What can I say?
OK, I need you to try this spaghetti and meatballs.
-It's good. It's not as good as the chilli, though.
But there can only be one that I like the best. It's the chilli.
I think the spaghetti and meatballs is better and I made all of them.
-Which one do you like, Brande?
-I like them both, but the chilli is easy to just take out of a can,
-but this kind of stuff is so original and different.
-I like the meatballs.
-It's your decision, ultimately.
-You get three meatballs.
-Let's go with that.
'I think I succumbed to peer pressure, but keeping the girls together as a team'
and have everybody focused on one project and one idea,
I think it was the wise decision.
OK, we're not doing chilli.
Get through that stuff, then I'm going to go finish...
-So, marketing, are you going to work with me on that, Joan?
What kind of a marketing campaign are you thinking of, Herschel?
Remember how the CSM is very important to them?
So how about an ad where one of their CSMs shows up at my bus?
'Clint loves to be in front of the camera.'
He'd leave Joan and I out in the cold.'
We can talk about, "Look, if you go with our campaign,
"you show up and you bring food to Clint Black on tour.
"He opens the door to his bus and it's his meals."
'Herschel was supposed to be making the decisions,'
but Clint decided it was going to be about celebrity endorsement.
'Clint is going to do what Clint wants to do.'
That's a good spot.
We just need a name.
Two-Timing Turkey Meatballs.
-Full House Turkey.
Jesse James "Who You Callin' Turkey" Turkey Meatballs.
-What else do you need me to do?
-Touchdown Turkey Meatballs. Talking Turkey.
I Ain't A Swan, I'm A Turkey Meatball.
-You guys have seriously been sitting down here too long. Clearly!
-What gives you that idea?
There's three meatballs in each serving, so you can do Three Of A Kind if you want.
-Triple Play Turkey Meatballs.
-There you go.
-Jesse, is there anything you want us to do right now?
-No, we're good.
-Who's doing the presentation?
-I'll do it.
Did you guys figure everything out? Is there anything...?
-I got it. We're good.
-You got it?
'I was concerned about the presentation as well as the marketing part.'
Jesse wouldn't tell us what it is.
-You can go. I'll finish this.
-You don't need help with presentation?
-No, I'm good.
-Thank you, Jesse.
'I feel like Jesse's had a bit of a wall between him and his team.
'He has some idea of what that marketing campaign will look like,'
but he isn't being open to suggestions.
I felt a little bit locked out.
- Good afternoon. - Hello.
This has been a great adventure for all of us, especially me cos I am not a cook.
Now, please welcome Orange Asian Soy Chicken.
Why this is a new concept is because there is so much "East meets West" these days.
I mean, it's one world now.
There is orange juice from the West, soy from the East,
French green beans, also sweet potatoes.
A delicious, healthy meal that consists of 480 calories.
So while you're eating, I'll just do all the talking.
We've created an outline of a marketing campaign.
This can be done most effectively through television by showing your CSM ringing the bell on a tour bus.
Clint Black opens the door, accepts these great meals and delivers to the camera,
"Home-cooked meals won't follow me around on a concert tour, but LiveSmart will.
-"No matter what your family loves to eat, Schwan's LiveSmart delivers every time."
- You must try the dessert. - Is it part of your meal?
Yes, it would come separately packaged, but with the meal.
- That's good. Really interesting. - Thank you so much.
'I think it went much better than I thought it was going to go.'
The food was edible. We have a good chance of winning.
-I like the chicken. I thought it had great flavour.
-The flavours are all good on this.
-How do you think their dessert comes out?
-I'm not sure how you can freeze a yogurt in that way.
This I get in one of our packages.
That is like two packages, maybe three.
You'll have a granola packet, a berry packet and a yogurt packet.
-That adds a lot.
-That adds a lot. That's exactly right.
-How are you?
-Good. How are you?
-This is our version of spaghetti and meatballs.
-My name is Jesse James. I'll give you some facts about the new meal you're going to eat.
The Triple Play Turkey Meatballs, gluten-free pasta and delicious apple berry crisp for dessert.
You're thinking, "It's just a fancy version of spaghetti and meatballs."
But we've taken an old favourite and adapted it into a meal you can feel good about eating
and still get the full satisfaction of having that hearty-made-healthy comfort food.
The meatballs come with gluten-free pasta and a tomato basil sauce.
The gluten-free market is one of the fastest-growing segments in the food industry,
as people develop wheat allergies or coeliac disease.
And instead of using breadcrumbs for filler,
we used a mix of vegetables such as sweet red onion, garlic, mushrooms and spinach.
The added bonus is you get your kids to eat spinach now without them even knowing it's in there.
'I was really worried about the presentation because Jesse wouldn't tell us what would be said.'
But in the end, he pulled it off. He looked adorable and cute.
-'He did a great job.'
-It's hearty-made-healthy because Schwan's take the hassle out of healthy.
-Thank you very much.
-Thank you very much. Thank you.
The only thing I'm worried about is the marketing part of the campaign. That's the only thing it was lacking.
I like the innovation of it. Gluten is hot. There's no doubt about that. They did their homework.
The vegetables inside the meatballs is a good idea.
-Where was the marketing?
-I missed the marketing.
-Was it that sign?
-There wasn't any.
-No marketing campaign.
It'll be a tough decision. Each one of those teams had some good points
-and some things they missed.
-Yeah, for sure.
-How do you think your team did?
-I think we did well. It was tough.
-How did Joan do?
-She did very well.
I've watched Joan for many years and she always makes people laugh about her non-cooking ability.
Well, we decided early on she was not going to be the cook, so that was easy.
-How did Clint do?
-Clint is Clint.
-What does that mean?
Clint don't like to listen too well, but he works.
Who did the better job between Clint and Joan?
-Oh, you're putting me on the spot.
-I think Joan did.
-Joan knew what she had to do. I gave out what everyone was supposed to do.
I would be the cook, Joan would work on the presentation, Clint would do the marketing.
Then it ended up that Clint wanted to be the cook.
-Clint, why is that?
-Herschel chose to go with a chicken recipe that we make in my home.
-Did you agree with it?
-I was resistant.
The executives, I thought, made it clear that they wanted something very different than what they had.
-Do you think this is something they had?
-I think they had a lot of chicken dinners,
so I voiced my opinion, but I was supportive of his decision.
-I didn't hear you voice your opinion.
-I'm perfectly confident that I remember this right.
Herschel wanted to go with chicken. I said I had a great chicken recipe.
It was my decision, but I didn't hear him voice his opinion.
What did you think of Herschel as a project manager?
Well, I think Herschel is a strong leader.
I do have to take exception with the "Clint doesn't listen" part.
There was one issue that I was concerned about
and, really, I was trying to have Herschel's back.
With him being the project manager,
if he chose plain yogurt for the menu that wouldn't freeze and thaw well, we shouldn't use it,
-and he argued that...
-No, I didn't argue.
-Let me finish.
-I'm trying to defend myself.
-You're not telling the truth.
-Herschel, let him go, then you go.
-He talks me down until I have to be quiet finally.
Go ahead. Go ahead, Clint.
Possibly I should have just let him...
I was right and he was wrong. Being the project manager, I made the decision, but he argued with me.
And Clint's problem is Clint sees nobody but Clint.
When I first met Clint, I thought he was an only child.
-Jesse, how did you feel about being project manager?
-I felt good.
-You were a good leader?
-I think so.
-A strong leader?
-OK, no more of that laid-back crap I think you do intentionally.
Annie, how was he as a leader?
Jesse did really well in certain aspects and not so well in others.
-Where was he bad?
-There were certain cases where he was relatively impervious to suggestion.
He decided this was where we were going to go and he didn't take suggestions.
Melissa, how did Annie and Jesse get along?
-You have two very strong, stubborn personalities.
So there was a lot of polite, yet tense discussion.
-I think we got along really well.
-I didn't say you didn't get along.
Melissa, you're saying the truth and it's going to be negated, so just don't defend people.
-We just decided to make all the dishes.
-Is Jesse an intense person? I can't figure him out.
Joe, he marries one of the most sought after women in the world. People like us say, "That's cool."
Yet he's so low-key. If you're with him, you say he's a stiff.
How the hell did he marry Sandra Bullock? What did she see?
She's totally in love with this guy. I can't believe it.
-He's got to be great in bed.
-Got to be great in bed.
You've got to have something. Something's going on.
OK, Joe, tell me what the executives liked about Athena.
They liked about Athena that it was innovative and that you were using some gluten-free ingredients.
The bad thing was the total lack of a marketing campaign.
Thank you, Joe. Ivanka, what did the executives like about KOTU?
The executives said they liked the fact that it was easy to create,
that it tasted good.
They also liked the fact that it was healthy.
What they didn't like was the dessert. It was hard to put together. It has to be simple.
They thought the dessert was overly complicated.
Ready? Are you guys ready?
The Schwan's executives really liked both a lot. That's the good news.
But the really good news is for Athena, Jesse's team, because they liked yours more.
I congratulate you. That's wonderful. Good job.
Jesse, you're going to be getting 20,000 for your favourite charity, which is...?
-It's the Long Beach Education Foundation.
-What is that exactly?
-It rebuilds industrial art programmes for kids in the inner city.
-Good. Use the money well.
-I told you the gluten-free would work.
Get out of here. Joan is seething. Every time you open your mouth, she gets angry. Get out of here.
KOTU, as usual, somebody will be fired.
Interesting position. You did pretty well as a team.
Who would you fire, Clint?
-Did you think you won?
-I thought we won.
-You weren't really happy with the product?
-I was concerned we were giving them something they had.
What would you have done differently, Clint?
-I wouldn't have done the chicken.
-What would you have done?
That's really hard to say. We didn't really explore options for the entree.
He was certain that chicken would be the right choice, based on customer satisfaction.
-There are a lot of chicken dishes. You were to be innovative.
-That was your main contention?
So you're on record then. Maybe you should have stood your ground.
He never expressed that. He was the one who came up with the recipe.
Because I don't eat chicken, I don't eat meat.
And I asked, "What can we prepare?"
If you don't eat meat, why were you the project manager, Herschel?
I said Herschel should be project manager because Clint, when he gets a hold of something,
he moves ahead and we wouldn't have had any input. I adore Clint.
I think he's very stubborn.
-You didn't adore him a number of weeks ago.
-You hated him. Not as much as you hated Annie.
No, but Clint again, what he says, he means and that's it. There was no second side...
Do you dislike Annie because she's on the other team?
No, because she's always got a second agenda. She's a poker player.
Oh, my Lord! She's so lost her mind. I can say the sky is blue and she's like, "She's a bitch!"
-I like all this personal stuff, but can we get back to the marketing campaign?
-Good. He's all business.
-Did you assign Clint marketing, Herschel?
I'll give you an example on Clint. If you notice, in the marketing campaign, Clint mentioned himself.
He said, "Clint Black's bus," because he wants to be out there all the time.
-I think he's become spoiled.
-But Clint is a star. He's the biggest country music guy.
Stars maybe do have a little bit of a different something in life.
But at this task, he's not a star.
He's working, doing the marketing.
-Good point, Joseph.
-Nobody's a star here. We're working.
Herschel, you don't like Clint very much.
-No, I do like him.
-I can put up with Clint.
-OK, but do you like Clint?
-Yes, I like him.
-Do you like Herschel?
-I like him fine, but there were a few occasions
where Herschel is confused about what I'm trying to say or he decides that discussing is arguing...
Clint, the arguments on a weekly basis have been consistent
against you that you don't listen to your team or the project manager.
Is that a fault of yours?
My idea of supporting your leader is discussing it calmly, putting forth your view
until they make a decision and...
Clint, you don't listen too much. Let's face it.
Over the course of the last number of weeks, they have had a hard time. Joan's had the hardest time of all.
What do you think of this, Joan? Was Clint controlled like he should be by a project manager?
I think that Herschel... came up to bat.
I'd like to take this unique opportunity to let everybody know
I was the first one to suggest that Clint should be fired.
Joan, who should I fire?
-You hate this.
-You make me cry. Here I go again.
I have to say... Oh!
OK. It's hard for you, Joan. How do you think I feel? Every week, I have to fire somebody.
If I cried every time, it would be sad. They'd say, "He's pathetic! Trump cries when he fires somebody!"
I never thought of it. Maybe I should do that.
Anyway, this is a tough choice
and I could have used some help, Joan.
I think the hard part is that, in this particular case,
Herschel, the project manager is at a huge disadvantage
and being the project manager, not having total control over Clint... He's not easy.
-May I say one thing?
-Yes, go ahead.
If I had come down on Clint, I would have lost Clint, then it would have just been the two of us.
-Clint didn't want your product and you lost because of it.
-It was his product.
Clint suggested the recipe, but it was your decision to go with the chicken.
-It was also your dessert.
And the executives did say that the three components that you used were too complicated for the consumer.
That's one of the reasons you lost.
-Look, you've lost before, Herschel.
-You were the project manager. You know how much I like you.
-I love you.
I am not a gay man and I love you, Herschel. Herschel, you're fired.
-Good luck. Thank you.
That's a tough one.
-Thank you, Joan.
-Thank you, thank you, thank you.
This is devastating.
I love you so much.
I want to send your mother a letter because I want to tell her what she raised...
She raised such a great man.
Doing that was very hard.
I think Mr Trump made the wrong decision.
I felt Clint should have been the one to leave,
but this is the way he felt and so I go with it.
I had a great time on The Celebrity Apprentice. I met a lot of great people.
That is worth more than anything.
