The first hour is a list of top fights and other crap from all the seasons. It’s filler. But I’m glad because I am not ready to start recapping. Kenya Moore had the fourth worst campaign of all time with the Hawaiian Buns photobomb with the baby with the bun fetish. Kenya also came in second in the boardroom backstabbing list. I suppose these are accomplishments.
Okay, it’s the second hour. Time to watch Vivica Fox get sent home. Wow, after firing the other team altogether, Trump still is not done firing people. He is going to fire one of the final three right now. Donald Trump asks Vivica why she should stay. She really has no reason. Leeza and Geraldo are the obvious choice. Even Vivica knows this. Vivica says Leeza is a better competitor she is. Vivica cries again. Vivica has done the hormonal cry every boardroom. Trump fires Vivica. She basically quit. I think we all saw the writing on the wall.
The Final Task: The gang goes to Universal Orlando Resort on Trump’s private jet. They are going to shoot a commercial selling vacation packages.
Leeza and Geraldo are old friends who love each other. Trump’s jet is a bit smaller than I expected. It’s lovely. But I don’t think it’s his main jet.
Kevin Jonas, Brandi Glanville and Johnny Damon are on Team Leeza.
Leeza’s theme is “The Magic of Memories” She is trying to get Olivia Newton John to sing Magic for the commercial. Leeza is going more toward a family theme. Kevin will be directing the filming. The photos from spoilers led me to believe that Kevin was the Project Manager. He did a LOT of work.
Leeza and the gang start at the resort’s “beach.” AKA lots of pools. Leeza gets a single $120,000 from a donor. Brandi and Johnny run off for hot dogs and beer. I also saw pictures of this in my spoilers. It didn’t look like they did much at all. While Johnny and Brandi drink beer, Leeza and Kevin eventually give up and go to work without them. Eventually, they all go to the war room and where Brandi is bummed she hasn’t been able to ride any rides. Leeza sends the kids back out to see if there are props in the store that might be helpful to the task. But first, Brandi and Johnny have had burgers and fries delivered for themselves. These two eat a lot. Leeza gets another $50k from a donor as the other two
Leeza confirms Olivia Newton John to perform. Brandi and Johnny ditch their task to go ride on a roller coaster. They stupidly buy the photos for their ride to tell on themselves. Leeza doesn’t get worked up about it but Kevin is quietly seething.
Kevin does a great job directing the commercial. They have 12 shots to shoot.
Ian Zierling, Lorenzo Lamas and Vivica Fox are on Team Geraldo.
Geraldo is not really thrilled with Ian and Lorenzo being there. They don’t all get along. Ian says he is going to work hard for Geraldo. Geraldo asks for opinions and then tells them exactly what they are going to do. Geraldo is going to be Harry Potter. There is a brand new Diagon Alley that was opening at the time at Universal. During my spoiling of the show, I thought the whole task was going to be based on that because it is a huge deal that was getting ready to open. I’ve never been to Universal, but even I want to go to the Harry Potter thing. After talking to the Universal executives, Team Geraldo goes with the theme Discover Your Inner Hero.
Geraldo has to sell 10 vacation packages for as much money as possible. Geraldo says he will sell seven and he is trying to the others to sell one each. Ian is trying to sell ten on his own. Geraldo says he still has people he has not hit up for money yet.
Geraldo is trying to get Josh Grobin, but he is worried he won’t be available. The backup is for the team to dress as wizards and sing themselves. Hmm Grobin or Geraldo… kid of a big difference. Everyone on Team Geraldo is working hard.
When Geraldo gets ready to start the shoot, despite the fact that Lorenzo is the director who spent the day yesterday working with Vivica on the list of shots they need and in what order, Geraldo completely disregards their work and has his own shot list in mind. This pisses off Lorenzo and Vivica.
Eventually, Lorenzo is able to direct. However, when they start filming, the kid actors were sent to the war room instead of on to the filming location. Somehow this is Vivica’s fault. Sabatoge?
Oddly the show cut off after the last 60 minute segment with the ending of the show missing. weird. And to be continued…
