The new season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice: All-Stars (an oxymoron if ever there was one) commenced with a bit of a shocker on Sunday night.

Who was sent packing by The Donald?

Bret Michaels, a former winner of the reality show, was the first contestant bounced this spring after his team failed to sell enough meatballs. Brutal.

Past champs Joan Rivers, Piers Morgan, Arsenio Hall and John Rich are serving as judges; Michaels chose to compete again, rather than judge.

This clearly irritated Trump, and may have put a target on his back from the second he joined Team Power along with a host of other B-listers.

Bret’s teammates were Playmate Brande Roderick, Claudia Jordan, Dennis Rodman, La Toya Jackson, Lil Jon and original Apprentice star Omarosa.

Their opposition, Plan B, featured a rag tag crew: Trace Adkins, Dee Snider, Gary Busey, Lisa Rinna, Marilu Henner, Penn Jillette and Stephen Baldwin.

Roderick was the project manager of the losing team, but Trump spared her, saying she did so well individually when it came to raising cash.

It then came down to Bret and La Toya, with Michaels getting the axe, his dreams of earning a second Celebrity Apprentice title dashed immediately.

What do you think? Did the Donald make the right call? Who do you want to win this year? Did you know the show was even still on? Tell us below!
