'All-Star Celebrity Apprentice' Premiere: Donald Trump Blasts Bret Michaels For Returning (VIDEO)

Donald Trump is back and this time he's presiding over "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice." Fourteen former celebrities agreed to come back for another shot at winning the show, including one former winner. But Trump wasn't sure why Bret Michaels agreed to come back, and he made a point of discussing it right away.

"You’re asking me to pick you as a winner again, which I thought was crazy," Trump told him. All of the other winners were available as consultants to Trump on his side of the table. So is that why Michaels became the first person fired? Simply because he'd already won the show?

It certainly seemed that way, though his team did lose the challenge, and the consensus was that Michaels earned the least. The New-Jersey Star Ledger wants to know why -- if Trump had such a problem with Michaels being back as a contestant rather than an advisor -- didn't this come up before he was cast on the show?

EW was disappointed, but thought it made sense for the show. Right away, it guarantees a new winner for the season, and it at least ensured one more week of the crazy antics from the likes of Gary Busey and Dennis Rodman.

The all-star season of "Celebrity Apprentice" continues on Thursdays at 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
