TV show description:
Based on the regular version of The Apprentice, this TV series features a group of celebrities from various backgrounds as they compete for a large amount of cash for their chosen charity.
During the show, contestants live in communal suites and compete on two teams to complete assorted business tasks. The winning team is given a reward while the members of the losing team are expected to explain their failure to Donald Trump and his two advisers.
The leader of the losing team and two others must then argue as to who should be held accountable for the loss and “fired” out of the competition. The final contest is held between the two finalists with past contestants assisting them.
In 2017, the series was rebranded as The New Celebrity Apprentice with Arnold Schwarzenegger taking over the lead spot.
Episode #90 — I Don’t Have Time for Anyone’s Ego Except My Own
The final task from Carnival Corporation is well underway and the stakes have never been higher. The two finalists, aided by familiar faces from this season, have been tasked with preparing an ad campaign, hosting a party and producing a mini-variety show, with each one hoping to be named the New Celebrity Apprentice. Exciting music performances from legendary artists and special guests such as Caitlyn Jenner add to the fun of their events as the final two also compete to raise the most money in ticket sales and donations for their respective charities. Later, the Governor makes his most difficult decision this season in naming the New Celebrity Apprentice winner and awarding them with a $250,000 check for their designated charity.
First aired: February 13, 2017.
