Celebrity Apprentice: Bret is Late, Again

Celebrity Apprentice kicks off with an intro showing Bret Michaels proclaiming “If you’re going to have a freak out, have a ROCK star freak out”. This leads into episode two with Bret and two fellow diabetics sitting outside the boardroom. Along with a 100K check for a diabetes charity, Bret sends them along with his mantra, “You can have a full life, you can ROCK!” For those playing along, that’s two shots in less than five minutes!

This week’s challenge is to create a Kodak experience. As the groups pick their Project Manager, Sharon Osbourne says she’s sick so she is going to sit this one out. Sharon is playing this game well, lay low and take shots at everyone when you have a chance. Well played, Sharon. During her commentary her title is Music Manager/TV Star. I think it’s time we switched those two around.

For the men’s team, ROCK Solid, Sinbad is the Project Manager. This poses a lot of communication problems and Bret becomes frustrated and impatient because he has not been assigned a task. His resolution is to wander around in a basement as the cameras follow, then come back upstairs and start dropping F-bombs, saying something like, “I know how it was in ROCK of Love”, then leaving.

The next morning Bret is late, so they leave him at the hotel. He eventually meets up, explaining that “In ROCK time I was early, but ten minutes late in real time”. It appears Bret could be in trouble if ROCK Solid loses this challenge. The team rallies and put on their Kodak experience without many problems; however, the women also do well. Donald Trump lets the teams know the women won the challenge, ROCK Solid lost.

Bret appears well as he walks into the boardroom with his shirt open and wearing a Tiger Woods Sunday red bandana. Then, Bret’s eye rolling begins. Sinbad mentions Bret’s absence. Eyes roll. The ex-Governor of Illinois mentions he isn’t a leader. Eyes roll. Track star Michael Johnson mentions his tardiness. Eyes roll. The women are watching in a different room, Sharon is leading the peanut gallery taking shots at each of the men’s personal appearances, including penis size. Apparently Sharon is feeling a little better. All are excused except for Bret, Sinbad, and the ex-Governor.

After a brief discussion, Sinbad is fired. Regardless of Bret’s behavior, no one could even understand Sinbad. Bret is safe.

Cut to next week’s previews and we see ROCK Solid growing increasingly impatient with Bret, plus he is wearing a black bandana into the boardroom. Is this it for Michaels? Is the black bandana a sign, or just one of a million bandanas? Stay tuned…

I think Celebrity Apprentice is the wrong show for him. He's use to being in charge and on this show he's not. Plus, what's up with the big bags under his eyes. I think he will be fired within a few weeks.
