And then there were two: Ex-WWE diva Maria Kanellis, Australian TV chef Curtis Stone and reality TV star Sharon Osbourne were all sent packing on Sunday night’s edition of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, leaving rocker Bret Michaels and actress Holly Robinson Peete to battle it out in the show’s live season finale next week.

RadarOnline.com has all the scoop on Sunday’s episode, as the total contestants were whittled down from five to two. Host Donald Trump enlisted help from the first Apprentice winner, Bill Rancic, and last season’s Celebrity Apprentice champ, Joan Rivers, to help him narrow the field for this season’s crown. After hearing all of the candidates out, The Donald handed pink slips to Kanellis, Stone and Osbourne, in that order.
“I came in here as a complete underdog,” Michaels, 47, said after learning he would remain in the competition. “You know what everyone’s mistake was? They so underestimated me.”
Michaels and Peete, 45, in their final assignment, were to work with beverage company Snapple in developing a new flavor and marketing it, with the proceeds going to their designated charities.
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, The Poison singer made headlines recently after a health scare that started April 22 when the rocker, complaining of a severe headache, was rushed to a Phoenix, Arizona hospital, where doctors discovered bleeding at the base of his brain stem. He was discharged after nearly two weeks in the hospital and told to rest for six weeks before getting back to work. His doctors said he is expected to fully recover.
This season’s Celebrity Apprentice champion will be crowned in the show’s live season finale, which airs on NBC Sunday, May 23 at 9/8c.
It’s not known if Michaels will make a live appearance on the final show.
