One of the strangest characters to appear on “The Celebrity Apprentice” has to be Ex-Poison lead singer Bret Michaels who lets us in on some backstage secrets and reveals that he thinks he has a good shot at winning.
Tardiness: Donald Trump has no tolerance for Michaels being late his first day.
“My first day there didn’t go well because I ran on rocker time. Let’s just say that Donald Trump time and Bret Michaels time are two different time zones.”
Heated Arguments: Michaels teases that he gets into a heated argument with one of the female contestants.
“There’s a moment where something gets thrown in my face very harshly and the person gets up in my face so much that I had one of those, “Okay, now you’ve pissed me off” moments. I won’t say who it is, but I will say it was a female.” Perhaps it is Sharon Osbourne? “Sharon Osbourne, I must warn you, I know Sharon and respect her but I’m not a guy that backs down. You’ll just have to watch what happens.”
Rock Star Stamina: Michael’s rock star work schedule provides him with an advantage over the competition when the other contestants fall sick to the long hours.
“In the first few days, I was so beyond tired that the only thing I had going for me was that as a rock musician I know how to work on a fume. As much as I was unpunctual, when everyone was collapsing, I was able to lay down on the cement floor, sleep for 15 minutes, and get up and keep going. Everybody, at one point or another, got or was getting sick.”
Curve Ball: Everyone expects Michaels to be the weakest link this season but in reality, he has a background in business that will definitely throw off the contestants.
“The one thing people might not know about me is that for Poison, my bass player Bobby Dall and I have pretty much co-managed the band from day one. I’ve always been extremely hands’ on with our career and the one in the conference calls with the tour promoters telling them what we need to do.”
Bret Michaels is going to be exclusively blogging on Fancast.com the night after every episode of “The Celebrity Apprentice”
“The Celebrity Apprentice” debuts on NBC this Sunday, March 14 and you can follow the Poison front runner every week on Fancast.com.
