On Sunday, May 10, TV personality Joan Rivers duels against world famous poker champion Annie Duke for the title of Celebrity Apprentice. It’s been a hell of a season with polar personalities like country star Clint Black and NBA player Dennis Rodman. There have been many rivalries this season with the biggest being among the final two. Annie and Joan have had some verbal altercations including when Joan called Annie “Hitler.”
It’s going to a great season finale. Previous celebrities are scheduled to appear and the rivals plan VIP parties and private auctions. It’ll be three hours and there will be an appearance by last season’s runner up, country star Trace Adkins (“You’re Gonna Miss This”), CMT reports. Last year, Piers Morgan (America’s Got Talent) placed first and made multiple appearances this season.
In Celebrity Apprentice, 16 celebrities work for Donald Trump, raising money for a particular charity of their choice. They do various tasks like designing market plans for phones or selling cupcakes. Celebrities must use their brains and celebrity status to raise the most money for their team for charity. At the end of each episode, Donald Trump gives one celebrity the boot.
Celebrity Apprentice has finally been renewed for a third season. (There has only been one Celebrity Apprentice prior to this season. Before that, it was just regular people.) The new season — featuring new celebrities — will air on NBC in the spring of next year. “Its Emmy nominations and great success have translated into a wonderful experience. Working with Mark Burnett has been terrific and I am greatly honored that NBC has renewed us for yet another season, our ninth,” Trump commented.
Who should be on? If you had to pick, who would you sign on for another season? I’d like to see another country star, perhaps Toby Keith. If you know anything about Toby Keith, you’d realize that his attitude would make this show worth watching. I’d also like to see someone with a personality like Jesse James, who left last week, someone who is really calm and collected to balance out the crazy.
This season, the show had 8.6 million viewers. Not bad considering it’s Sunday nights from 9-11 ET/PT. Hopefully, next year’s will be just as successful.
