Episode Summary

EDIT
Cupcake Challenge
AIRED:
Donald Trump returns for an eighth season in the boardroom. Joining him are sixteen new celebrity candidates vying for the title of the Celebrity Apprentice, as well as $250,000 for the charity of their choice. The celebrity candidates were divided into two teams: the men (who named their team Kotu, which stood for "Kings of the Universe") against the women (who named their team Athena after the Greek goddess of wisdom, beauty, and war).

The first task was to create, bake, and sell cupcakes to the people of New York for money. Athena made more money for the win. Project Manager Joan Rivers made over $126,000 for her chosen charity as her reward. Kotu went to the boardroom, where Andrew Dice Clay was fired.moreless

    9.0
    This was a great way to start off season 8 of the Apprentice. It really gave an insight to each of the celebrities personalities and their strategies for the season. It was also a fun task - making cupcakes. This episode definitely got me excited for the next episode so I could see if the woman would continue to dominate or if the men would take over and win the next task. Donald Trump provided, like always, an intense board room meeting where you were never sure who was going to get sent home. For those of you who haven't seen this show yet, definitely start watching!moreless
