Ahoy there, matey! Raise ye old Jolly Roger as the scurvy sea dogs of team Backbone be turnin’ into pirates this evening on Celebrity Apprentice. But will their quest for treasure cause one landlubber to take a visit down to Davy Jones’ Locker? Arrrrrrgh, me thinks…uh, me thinks… yeah, sorry, I’m all out of poor man’s pirate lingo. In any event, all you need to know is that the teams were tasked with promoting sunscreen this week, and the men’s team decided to do dressed up at pirates. But did they win or lose? And who was fired? My full recap will be up at 2 a.m. (UPDATE: Click over now to see Dalton’s full Celebrity Apprentice recap), but if you’ve already watched tonight’s Celebrity Apprentice and want to sound off on what happened and who went home, then read on after the jump for more. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you’ve already watched Sunday’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice.]
What’s worse, having a bad theme, or no theme at all? That was the choice before Donald Trump and the executives of Australian Gold sunscreen after the men went all out on the pirate thing while the women (under the non-leadership of La Toya Jackson) just threw out some sand and fake snow and pretty much called it a day. They also called it a win, even though the executives were horrified to discover that Playboy Playmate of the Year Hope Whateverherlastnameis was fully clothed. The executives were equally horrified, however, by Gary Busey discussing how sexual the sunscreen made him feel, and then asking for a job as a corporate spokesman. But of course Trump was not about to fire the guy making for all the great TV so Mark McGrath — who was Project Manager and came up with the pirate concept — was set home by The Donald instead.
However, just because the women won doesn’t mean there wasn’t plenty of drama going on there as well, especially when NeNe lit into La Toya, calling her both “Casper the Ghost” and “an old lady,” although those two things would seem to be mutually exclusive of each other. It wasn’t quite a freak out of Meat Loafian proportions, but it was close enough. What do you think? Is NeNe a bully? Should Hope have been naked? And what the hell is Gary Busey doing with that sunscreen? Hit the message boards and let us know, and then check back later for the full recap.
