Check out a first look of the season premiere episode of The Celebrity Apprentice which airs Sundays on NBC (9-11 p.m. ET), beginning March 3.
Episode Synopsis: Donald Trump tasks 14 returning celebrities to create and sell meatballs in a fundraising competition for charity. One Project Manager takes an unorthodox approach to the task and risks mission failure, while the other team immediately deals with an internal power struggle. Fundraising on both teams sets a new record for a first task, but only one Project Manager will take it all. In the end, one returning All-Star will hear Trump’s feared words: “You’re fired!” Special guests include Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan, Paul Teutul Sr., Amy Grant, Gilbert Gottfried, Valerie Bertinelli and Nikki Taylor. Boardroom advisors: Ivanka Trump and Piers Morgan.
Show Summary: Donald Trump returns with the first ever “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.” This is the sixth installment of “The Celebrity Apprentice” and the thirteenth season of “The Apprentice” series.
This season, fourteen of your favorite business-savvy celebrity contestants return for a second chance to raise money and awareness for their charity of choice. The last person standing will be chosen as the Celebrity Apprentice and have the honor of delivering a $250,000 bonus check to their designated charity.
Every week, the celebrity contestants will work in two teams, each under the guidance of a designated project manager, to compete in business-driven tasks around New York City, using their fame, along with their proven business acumen, to win challenges. Contestants are subjected to long hours, grueling deadlines, intellectual challenges, personality clashes, and intense scrutiny under the careful watch of Donald Trump and his advisors.
Certain challenges encourage contestants to reach out to their network of celebrity contacts for assistance or donations, leading to surprise visits by some of the world’s biggest stars and pop culture icons. Each task will end in the boardroom, where contestants must account for their actions and be judged by Trump and his advisors. Returning this season are Trump’s children and colleagues, Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric, as well as surprise guests along the way.
“All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” is produced by Mark Burnett in association with Trump Productions. Mark Burnett, Donald Trump, Page Feldman, and Eric Van Wagenen are executive producers. Sadoux Kim, Johnny Petillo, and Michael Dietz are co-executive producers.
