NEW YORK, NY – March 28, 2011 – Get ready for a supersized episode of “The Celebrity Apprentice.” On this Sunday’s episode, the celebrities face two tasks – to design, create and sell a limited edition “My New York” celebrity guidebook, and in celebration of National Walking Day, the teams will create an interactive live health segment and design the packaging for a “Walk with Walgreens” walking kit.
“We’ve got two drama-filled tasks and two unbelievably contentious boardrooms as part of this special three-hour episode of ‘Celebrity Apprentice and I will fire two contestants this week,’” said host and executive producer Donald J. Trump. ”The contestants are raising an amazing amount of money for charity and we will surpass the one million mark with this show,” added Mr. Trump.
In this special three-hour episode, airing from 8-11 pm ET, the teams take on two tasks and two celebrities are fired. It all begins when Mr. Trump tasks the teams with creating and selling a Celebrity guidebook on New York City. With a big bonus on the line, special guest Regis Philbin judges the teams’ books. Despite the added incentive, one Project Manager neglects the quality of their book, while the other team struggles just to get theirs completed in time. An explosive boardroom leads to another Celebrity being fired. The evening continues, as the teams create an interactive health segment for Walgreens. Before the Celebrities can even begin their task, Mr. Trump switches up the teams. One Project Manager struggles to maintain control of an insubordinate teammate, while the other team tries to complete the task with a Celebrity missing. Before anyone is even fired, Mr. Trump witnesses one of the season’s biggest Boardroom battles, resulting in one Celebrity going AWOL.
Walgreen’s sponsors this special episode, which will be broadcast live on their NYC Times Square viewing screen.
The remaining men are: late-night legend Arsenio Hall, pop star Clay Aiken, the “Incredible Hulk” Lou Ferrigno, magician/comedian Penn Jillette, rock star Dee Snider, and star of “American Chopper,” Paul Teutul, Sr.
