The teams were tasked with creating entertainment for Medieval Times on this week's installment of "The Celebrity Apprentice" (Sun., 9 p.m. EST on NBC). James Lipton was on-hand, for some reason, as an official advisor, while Penn Jillette and Lisa Lampanelli were selected by their respective teams as project managers. Both were certainly logical choices, as they have plenty of experience putting on live shows.
While the men went the more traditional route, Lampanelli and the women concocted a strange "Real Housewives" scenario, with them vying for the affection of Donald Trump, played by Lampanelli. Trump Jr. came along and advised they ratchet up the violence considering the medieval theme. As it went along, though, Victoria Gotti got more and more upset, even threatening to defect to the men's team so she can have a more substantial role.
The men wanted to spotlight some of their male celebrities by letting the audience know who they were, so they had Clay Aiken sing a song, and Lou Ferrigno battle it out in the arena with Paul Teutul Sr. While everyone had roles in the performance, Ferrigno got laser-focused on the sword fight, wanting to practice it over and over again. Dee Snider actually broke a finger on his horse, but powered through the performance regardless.
The men scored more points with the audience, so it was the women who went to the Boardroom. Lampanelli brought Gotti and Dyana Mendoza with her, where she fought valiantly for her place in the competition. She showed passion and commitment, which Trump appreciated. He didn't see that same passion in Gotti, and so she was fired. That's two down for the women's team. They need to come back strong!
"The Celebrity Apprentice" airs every Sunday night at 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
