If I had a dollar for every time Lou said "I gave it 110%"...

Good riddance. Now they need to get rid of Dayanna or whatever he name is.

The fact that Lou made it this far was unbelievable. Not just because he added nothing to the projects (other than to say he wanted to be the star at all times), but because he constantly threw people under the bus in the boardroom (yet got REALLY offended whenever someone said he was weak).

I'm also surprised Theresa is still around. Of the people left, there's a pretty clear have / have not distinction between one group (Arsenio, Clay, Aubrey, Lisa, Penn) and the other (Theresa, Dayana, Paul).

Paul is doing a great job of laying low and making one contribution every other task or so, however. He may sneak into the final four just by not pissing people off.

Lisa's confrontational style is starting to catch up to her. As great as she is at writing, she is too insulting to stick around at this rate. Aubrey almost eliminated herself by being that way as well.

Clay and Penn seem like the best bets for the final two. Arsenio is the wild card. Although I think he's not quite as strong as the top four, Trump loves him.

I hate Trump, and find the premise of this show (that these folks are working for Trump, or that Trump has anything to teach) stupid. But I am finding this season fascinating. Lou's spasms and tics will be sorely missed. Trump's investment in Miss Universe has probably protected Dayanna as much as it can. I think that she is gone the next time that her team loses. They need Lisa until close to the end, since she is the only one left who makes for dramatic TV.

This show has actually found a way to make me hate Lisa Lampinelli even more. Is Lou useless? Sure. But she's also the "brains" behind the tasks that have lost all but, what, once so far? Her stuff sucks.

The promo for next week showed a clip of Trump firing someone that made it look like Clay gets fired. However, I think that's a red herring. The actual footage from next week's episode suggests that the final will be Aubrey vs. Clay. I don't think Arsenio appeared at all in the task footage.

I've never seen the Celebrity Apprentice before, so I don't know if bringing people back is normal for the last task. Either way, I hope they let them choose teams like pick-up basketball. That would be interesting - especially if they had to choose teams before Trump revealed the nature of the task.

If everyone came back, and the finals were Clay vs. Aubrey (meaning they're not in play), I would pick Carolla, Penn, Lampanelli, Arsenio, Dee Snyder, and Dayana Mendoza (but not if I also had Lisa), in that order.

Although I was rooting for him because Carolla was on his team, I thought Arsenio winning probably wasn't the right call, based on what they showed in the (admittedly heavily-edited) episode. Clay's event seemed objectively better in nearly every respect, and he also raised nearly twice as much money as Arsenio did. They were both good guys, though, so I was still happy Arsenio won. Aubrey didn't clap when Arsenio was announced as the winner. Classy to the last!

Even though I do like Debbie Gibson's music, her shoehorning her "shake your love" into everything was enough to make me root against Clay's team. Maybe if she changed it up with "only in my dreams" or "electric youth" I'd feel differently. Either way I bet the comedy show Arsenio did was more original than Clay's variety show. Good win.

i love how on this show the women immediately get to fighting in the very first episode. there aren't even like 5 minutes where they're cordial to each other. and meanwhile the men just go about their business (except Geraldo because Geraldo). and somehow the women are winning. Vivica Fox blamed her team's performance on Shaun Johnson having her period. That was pretty hilarious.

Haha I happened to see that exact part. I have no idea how they said that the men lost that. The women were awful. And you don't disparage my girl Shawn like that.

Gilbert Gottfried (who was the fired celebrity this week) made an off color joke during their product pitch. otherwise they were much better.

Yeah I saw that. And the off color joke was purely factual. It is shocking that a woman would have sex with him twice.

Yeah, I was surprised the women won as well. They seemed totally unorganized. And seriously Shawn, pop a midol and get on with it. The men (other than Gilbert) did a great job.

If I was on a team with Geraldo, I would have punched him in the face by now. What an annoying egomaniac.

The women over 40 look like plastic surgery vomited all over their faces.
