As last night's premiere of the fourth season of Celebrity Apprentice unfolded, I'm reminded again how much more entertaining it is than the regular Apprentice show. First of all, the cast for this season is unrivaled — plenty of strong personalities and unique characters around. You have Richard Hatch, the first-ever Survivor winner, who stepped on a few toes last night by treating David Cassidy poorly, referring to him as "delicate" and dismissing David when the former child star tried to offer suggestions.
But the person who really made me laugh out loud was Gary Busey and his crazy antics. For example, during the boardroom meeting with the Trumps, somebody's cell phone started ringing. The scene gets more humorous when you see Gary fumbling around with his cell phone and muttering to himself about how to turn the sound off. Later on, Gary tries to articulate how his team, Backbone, performed and ends up confusing everyone. He basically said everything could've been done better and when prompted by Trump to explain what he meant, Gary said it meant his team did better.
I can already sense the drama brewing up with Star Jones and a number of people, and I'm looking forward to see how Star's dynamics with her team members evolve. The cast definitely has colorful personalities, and although Gary gives us a ton of laughs, I have other favorites I'm rooting for. Which contestant are you excited about this season?
