Supermodel Cheryl Tiegs was the first famous face ousted from the the fifth season of Celebrity Apprentice Sunday, and we’ve got all the details for you right here on RadarOnline.com.
The challenge on Sunday’s episode was that the men’s team, Team Unanimous, and women’s team, Team Forte, had to open up their own sandwich shops in Manhattan. The men’s team had a carnival theme while the women’s had a red carpet motif.
Former catwalk crawler Cheryl Tiegs struggled in the initial challenge, as her inexperience using an industrial slicker to grind out slices of cheese made her look inept.
In the end, the men’s team — buoyed by a $305,000 donation from a pal of team leader Paul Teutal (American Chopper) — defeated the fairer sex by a tote of $332,120 to $126,962.
Trump’s final choice on Sunday’s episode boiled down to firing either Tiegs, 64, team leader Patricia Velasquez, 41, or reality star Victoria Gotti, 49.
Tiegs acknowledged her earlier struggles and said that she wasn’t sure if the fast-paced, shark tank environment of The Donald’s reality show was something she’d be able to survive over the long haul.
And with that, Trump told her, “You’re fired.”
