The Celebrity Apprentice -- Season 2 Discussion Thread -- Premieres 3/1/09

Photobucket

The eighth season of Donald Trump's competition series (2nd as Celebrity edition) lifts off with rung-climbing business battles featuring 16 celebrities. They include singers Clint Black, Brian McKnight and Tionne Watkins; comics Andrew Dice Clay, Tom Green and Joan Rivers; sports figures Dennis Rodman, Herschel Walker and Scott Hamilton; and actress-models Claudia Jordan and Brande Roderick. First up: The celebs bake and sell cupcakes in a challenge marked by culinary slipups and a surprise taste test.


Personally, I would much rather see the original concept of this show back with real people looking for jobs with Trump (probably not gonna happen since the LA edition almost got this show cancelled and Trump filing for bankruptcy). However, I know some of you here loved this concept better than the previous editions, so here you go. Post away and enjoy!!

I'm undecided if I want to check this out. I personally hated the couple of episodes of the 1st Celebrity edition and didn't bother with it.

BTW, Season 2 is 11 episodes and every single episode is 2 hours long. All the boardroom segments will be extended longer than previous seasons.

I really liked the last one, but this lineup of celebrities doesn't really interest me, particularly at 2 hrs/ep, so I think I'll pass. I'm sure Diceman will get the bulk of the camera attention and I can't stand his schtik.

With Dennis Rodman, Tom Green, and Joan Rivers in the cast-- not to mention Donald Trump -- Clay has is work cut out for him if he wants to hog the camera time.

I'm looking forward to this show. It hasn't really been what it purports to be -- an attempt to weed through a batch of competent businessmen to find the best one -- since season 2 or 3, but it's still fun.

And I'm glad to see George in the publicity still. Hopefully he'll be a bigger part of the show than he was the last few seasons.

I can't stand Tom Green or Joan Rivers either, so that wouldn't help matters.

I enjoyed last season, and watching this one just for the Dice Man!

The only reason I am interested in this season, is because of Jesse James. It doesn't look like he will last long, since he has hardly been promoted.

Does Melissa Rivers ever do anything without her mother?

I think the show has really suffered with the addition of the no talent children. And no I don't think Ivanka is hot, I think she looks to much like the father and brother.

Spoiler:
Dice

and i think she/he went out very graciously and humbly. she/he really gave me a different view of who she/he was as a person.

i really think there is something wrong with me...i have never watched this and only lightly watched "The Girls Next Door", yet tonight i found myslef flipping through both and getting emotional at both, especially when the booted got it bc she/he even though very much deserved it, really went out respectably and i truly admired that.

but Hef getting emotional that everyone was leaving him and everyone getting emotional at leaving, i really had a hard time not watching.

Spoiler:
i think i'm ready for my vagina now.

luckily, i am taping "Eastbound & Down" so 'Big Mackie' should return thereafter.

Am I the only one that got a chuckle out of the whole "quitting" thing?

Quote:
The filing comes days after the casino operator's namesake founder said he would resign from the board over disagreements with bondholders who wanted the company to file for bankruptcy.

Friday's statement did not say when Trump's resignation would be offered or take effect. His daughter Ivanka Trump also said she was resigning.

No shit?

Spoiler:
With as big a part of the promotion as he was, I'm stunned he got the boot already. His little bagel rant at the beginning was hilarious. What did he say when he went out that was particularly classy?

Damnit. His speech at the end didn't help his case to Trump. Guess I will casually watch now.

Based on the numbers being flung around like $4k for a cupcake and the frequency, I had just assumed that they had sold more than $100k of cupcakes for each time. It was a bit surprising that the combined total was just $100k.

With the celebrity version of this show, it's more about who has better contacts than who does a better job on the tasks. You don't have to do a lot of work if you know someone willing to pay $10k for a cupcake for charity. For this reason, the whole point of the show has gotten lost.

Spoiler:
he just hugged the 2 others that were up for firing (Rodman, and Walker), knew it was his time and knew he would land on top. Trump had nothing but praise for him and said he was a great person. but, he knows he gave up and really wasn't into it and kinda owned it

I still find it hard to believe that Dice is the biggest selling comedian of all time. Is that for a single performance? I know he was really hot for a while, selling out MSG and so on, but I would expect that someone like Cosby or Carlin or Steve Martin or Robin Williams have played to more people over their careers simply because they actually had careers while Dice had a year where he was hot and then nothing.

It must be either the highest grossing single show or tour.

Is it just me or is 2 hours just too long? It really drags. They need to cut it down to at least 90 minutes.

This is NBC... the ultimate in cost cutting broadcasting. With Leno filling up the 10pm slot on other nights they need to apparently extend this out? I guess they couldn't find an SNL castoff off SNL compilation clips.... oh wait they had that on at 8!

I'm a bit stunned at the decision - I thought for sure it would be Herschel,and Trump would go for a ratings draw over actual merit. If it was possible to think even less of him then previously, Dice managed to pull it off - he's really got to work on his confidence and self worth It was great to see Dice try to avoid the embarrassment of being fired first by offering himself us as some type of martyr only to have Trump take him to task about quitting. If he had done half the effort selling during the challenge as he did selling himself in the boardroom - he may have stuck around. Gotta think Dennis is next.

Dice doing impressions of Stallone and Travolta seemed really desperate to me.
