GOING ONCE, GOING TWICE, YOU'RE FIRED � TWO CELEBRITIES ARE FIRED BEFORE THE FINAL TASK DELIVERY
The Remaining Two Celebrities Are Given Their Final Task to Run a Charity Auction and Backstreet Boys Concert
NEW YORK � March 17, 2008 � Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York and The Backstreet Boys guest star on this week's 'The Celebrity Apprentice' Thursday, March 20th at 9pm ET. In a surprise twist, the final four celebrities are called back into the boardroom and each celebrity is interviewed by CNBC'S Jim Cramer and Erin Burnett. Jim and Erin offer their insights to Donald Trump and the four finalists fight for their lives in a surprise Boardroom. The axe falls, and only two celebrities remain.
The next morning, Donald Trump reveals their last task � the two finalists will put on a charity auction and concert with The Backstreet Boys as each celebrity will be responsible for different aspects of the event. The finalists assisted by former Celebrity Apprentice alumni begin planning for the huge gala. As they race against the clock to organize the event, one struggles to meet the demands of The Backstreet Boys, while the other is let down by one of their celebrity helpers.
Donald Trump's eyes and ears on the task are his children Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.
Last week's task had the remaining five celebrities race against the clock to invent and attempt to sell a new sandwich for Quiznos. Both teams modeled their sandwiches after their celebrity images and tried to scramble to bring customers in. As the competition progressed, one team ran out of sandwiches, and the other team struggled with customers. In the boardroom, the decision became difficult for Donald Trump as he sent Stephen Baldwin home.
Tiffany Fallon, Nadia Comaneci, Gene Simmons, Jennie Finch, Nely Galan, Marilu Henner, Tito Ortiz, Omarosa, and Stephen Baldwin are the nine celebrities who have been fired by Donald Trump to date. Vinny Pastore resigned when the competition took an ugly turn. The final four celebrities competing for charity are: Trace Adkins, Carol Alt, Lennox Lewis and Piers Morgan.
The live finale of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' will air on NBC Thursday, March 27th, at 9 pm ET.
