The Celebrity Apprentice is back and Donald Trump is nowhere in sight. It’s definitely intriguing when TV shows refresh their line-up every so often, but Trump was always the thing that made the show a success. 

His quick wit and straight-to-the-point comments made the stakes very high and it sure seems like Arnold Schwarzenegger served as a worthy successor to the man who became President of the United States.

Aside from the leading man change, there was a location change, format changes and even a receptionist change. Yes, Amanda Miller is long gone. 

In a move that probably made some viewers think that Trump was telling Arnold what to do, he opted to split up the groups by gender, effectively turning the show into a battle of the sexes. 

Arnie’s advisors this time were Patrick M. Knapp Schwarzenegger and Tyra Banks.

Tyra is known for that other reality show, America’s Next Top Model, which was recently rebooted on VH1 with Rita Ora taking her place. 

Yeah, wee see no comparison either. Tyra must have got bored of the show. She was on it for over 20 seasons, so she clearly needed a little change. 

In a surprising move, the first challenge focused on Tyra’s make-up line. It was like one of the challenges you would expect from Rupaul’s Drag Race. 

Both groups were tasked with doing live demonstrations of the make-up and as you can probably expect, there were fireworks. The ladies lost out to the men. 

Snooki VMAs 2016

In the boardroom, there was much to discuss, but Snooki opted to not throw anyone under the bus, a move that rubbed The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Porsha Stewart, the wrong way. 

Snooki was called out for it and it seemed pretty clear the pair would be after one another for the rest of the season. After that, Youtube star, Carrie Keagan, was sent packing and emerged as the first person out of the game. 

Normally, there would be some sort of break for the contestants, but it was on to the second one. 

The mission was for both teams to shoot commercials for Trident, but the women royally screwed up when it emerged that they had actually filmed half of their commercial sideways. 

Clearly, the reality TV stars are only good in front of the camera and not behind it. This move cost them the win and Team Arete secured their second win of the night, meaning it was time for another woman to leave the competition. 

After another boardroom blowout, Carnie Wilson was given the pink slip, leaving the women shocked and wondering how they could possibly bounce back from two losses. 

The New Celebrity Apprentice was definitely an enjoyable affair. The little changes have refreshed the show in a necessary way and it should be intriguing to find out if Snooki ever decides to throw anyone under the bus.
