The celebrity candidates were challenged to sell 125 wedding dresses from an empty shop last night on The Celebrity Apprentice, prompting retail jitters from both teams. For the second time this season the celebrities phoned friends in order to get ahead, and both sides fought to sell dresses on short notice despite their lack of sales experience.
The women's team seemed to have a natural advantage on the topic of wedding dresses and used their connections in the industry to decorate their shop and make it look lively; However, with the exception of a $5,000 donation from Khloe Kardashian's friend Joe Francis, the female team, which was led by Playboy Playmate Brande Roderick, struggled to get friends to chip in for charity. The male team, which was led by a very hung over and tardy comedian Tom Green, made great sales at first, but had to scramble throughout the day and had some serious morale and commitment setbacks. Dennis Rodman failed to show up after a night of binge drinking with Green (Rodman had a very suspicious story about a dog or cat allergy).
By the end of the day the men's team sold 21 dresses for $63,450, and the women's team sold 22 dresses for $103,000. Tom Green was put in the hot seat for showing up late to his challenge, not raising any money and defending his party partner Rodman. Trump seemed to have a tough choice picking between a leader that didn't have command of his team and a no-show, but ultimately sent Green packing. Do you think he made the right choice?
