Challenges[edit]

Unlike the original series showing one episode a week, including the final boardroom. The Celebrity Apprentice is aired five nights a week. In this show's format, the tasks were aired every Mondays and Wednesdays, the losing team's boardrooms (including the firing) were aired on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the behind the scenes (including the celebrity giving a cheque to their chosen charity) were aired on Fridays.

Task 1[edit]

  • Airdates: 24 October 2011 (Task) and 25 October 2011 (Boardroom).
  • Project managers: Jesinta (Bouris' Babes) and Max (Unity).
  • Task: Operate a car wash service. The team that makes the most money wins.
    • Result: Bouris' Babes car wash offered a varying price range, allowing everyone to use their servie. Their biggest sale came from men's fashion label aussieBum, who offered Pauline Hanson $50,000 to wash their car in aussieBum underwear, plus $10,000 for Deni Hines to sing the Australian National Anthem. Conversely, Max only focused on corporate dollars, turning away anyone who offered less than $1000. By the end of the day, there were no more high-end customers, resulting in the men offering to wash cars for as little as $25. Max's treatment towards the other candidates was also considered poor.
    • Winner: Bouris' Babes.
  • Boardroom
    • Brought into the boardroom: Max, Warwick and Wendell.
    • Fired: Warwick, for contributing the least amount of sales at $20, and for being seen as lazy by the rest of his team.

Task 2[edit]

  • Airdates: 26 October 2011 (Task) and 27 October 2011 (Boardroom).
  • Project managers: Pauline (Ignite) and Shane (Unity).
  • Task: Operate a KFC franchise for three hours. The team that makes the most money through sales and donations wins.
    • Result: Though business started out slow for Unity, sales and donations eventually picked up. In addition they won a bonus $5,000. Whereas for Ignite, despite an initial influx of customers, business faded towards the end of the challenge.
    • Winner: Unity.
  • Boardroom
    • Brought into the boardroom: Pauline, Deni and Polly
    • Fired: Polly, as Mr. Bouris felt that she did not utilise her large social media following to her advantage.

Task 3[edit]

  • Airdates: 31 October 2011 (Task) and 1 November 2011 (Boardroom).
  • Project managers: Deni (Ignite) and Didier (Unity).
  • Task: To create two individual artworks and a group artwork, and run a charity art auction.
    • Result: Ignite raised $47,400, with their group piece being a print of the women's hands arranged in a circle. The men, as suggested by Jason, posed nude with tophats covering their crotches for their group work, with the team raising $55,250.
    • Winner: Unity.
  • Boardroom
    • Brought into the boardroom: Deni, Lisa and Pauline.
    • Fired: Deni, despite raising the most money on their team, she was unanimously considered a below-average leader by her teammates.
  • Notes:
    • Jason was absent from the auction due to previous commitments.
    • After both Deni and Didier spoke so passionately about their charities in the boardroom, Mr. Bouris offered them to keep all money raised for their own charity. Both accepted this offer.
    • Julia was awarded $20,000 to her charity for creating works that best fit the theme of 'Beautifully Simple'.

Task 4[edit]

  • Airdates: 2 November 2011 (Task) and 3 November 2011 (Boardroom).
  • Project managers: Julia (Ignite) and Wendell (Unity).
  • Team reshuffle: Didier and Max move to Ignite, Jesinta and Pauline move to Unity.
  • Task: To create an underwater-themed photoboard and raise money from photo sales.
    • Result: Though their photoboard was considered less impressive than that of Unity, Team Ignite raised $22,876. Some of their money came from various corporates as well as from the photoboard. Whereas, despite having a more popular photoboard, Team Unity only raised $17,874. The team didn't focus on getting money from corporates and mostly from the photoboard. Even so, some of the members sold less than they should have.
    • Winner: Ignite.
  • Boardroom
    • Brought into the boardroom: Wendell, Jason and Pauline.
    • Fired: Wendell, for relying too heavily on Jason, despite being team leader, and for not utilising corporate donations.
  • Notes:
    • During the challenge, Max stole a cheque from Jason worth $5,000 and never gave it back to Unity. At the boardroom, Julia had the cheque (not banked) and offered team Unity the cheque. Wendell accepted it without thanks, believing it was theirs from the start and deserved it.
    • Shane Crawford was absent during the boardroom due to a prior commitment.

Task 5[edit]

  • Airdates: 7 November 2011 (Task) and 8 November 2011 (Boardroom).
  • Project managers: Pauline (Ignite) and Jason (Unity).
  • Team reshuffle: Jesinta and Pauline move to Ignite, Didier and Max move to Unity.
  • Task: To create a spring themed Grazia Magazine fashion show featuring two team members and other models.
    • Result: Ignite's show was considered more 'stylish' and more suited to Grazia magazine content. Though their show was praised for being 'theatrical' Unity was criticised for some of their clothing choices and also not having correct shoe sizes suitable for the models.
    • Winner: Team Ignite
  • Boardroom
    • Brought into the boardroom: Jason, Didier and Max.
    • Fired: Didier and Max, both were fired as Mr. Bouris felt they were not 'game changers' this challenge, and for deferring to Project Manager Jason despite himself making bad decisions.
  • Notes:
    • Lisa did not participate due to a previous engagement, and was replaced for the challenge by eliminated candidate Warwick.
    • When stating his case to stay, Max gave reason to fire Didier bacause he was a 'self-confessed cocaine addict'. This was taken from an interview in the paper in which Didier talked about his life as a youth in Los Angeles. Both Didier and Jason were visibly upset by this remark.

Task 6[edit]

  • Airdate: 9 November 2011 (Task and Boardroom).
  • Project manager: Julia (Ignite) and Lisa (Unity).
  • Team reshuffle: Lisa moved to Unity.
  • Task: Create a 'living' billboard for P&O Cruises promoting the idea of a 'short-break' three day cruise
    • Result: Ignite's billboard was deemed as more fitting with the brief, and the team managed to keep a large crowd throughout the challenge. Despite being praised for their billboard design, team Unity's presentation was seen a flat and less fitting with the brief. Additionally, they struggled to draw a crowd to their presentation
    • Winner: Ignite.
  • Boardroom
    • Brought into the boardroom: Lisa, Jason and Shane.
    • Fired: Lisa, for being unable to manage Jason, despite being Project Manager and having prior experience with P&O Cruises.
  • Notes:
    • Lisa was unexpectedly called away on the first day of the challenge, forcing her to communicate with her team over the phone only.
    • Julia won her second challenge of the competition, making her the first celebrity to do so.

Task 7[edit]

  • Airdates: 14 November 2011 (Task) and 15 November 2011 (Boardroom).
  • Project managers: Shane (Ignite) and Jason (Unity).
  • Team reshuffle: Shane moved to Ignite and Pauline moved to Unity.
  • Task: To create a play for a group of seven year old school children, which included a nursery rhyme or song.
    • Result: Team Ignite used their props well and grabbed the children's attention by getting them involved in the story, whereas Team Unity didn't get all the props they wanted such as the hats. During the play, a few puns they made were not well made like Absolutree (absolutely) and Tree years old (three years old). Their sing a long was called "Thing a thong" which was deemed inappropriate (according to the adults) or confusing. In addition, Jason told the children to be quiet, which some of the children thought he was rude to them.
    • Winner: Ignite.
  • Boardroom:
    • Brought into the boardroom: Jason and Pauline.
    • Fired: Pauline.
  • Notes:
    • Mr. Bouris had organised for some 'surprise celebrities' to come in so each team had four people- Catrina Rowntree came in to help Team Ignite and Jonathan Coleman and Lara Bingle came in to help Team Unity.
    • Target sponsored the task and donated $20,000 to the winning project manager's charity.
    • Jason Coleman is the only project manager to have lost twice and still in the process.
    • This is Jason Coleman's fourth time consecutive appearance in the final board room, the longest streak by any candidate in the series.
    • This is Julia Morris's fourth consecutive task win, the longest streak by any candidate in the series.

Task 8[edit]

  • Airdates: 16 November 2011 (Task) and 21 November 2011 (Task, Boardroom and Winner Announcement)
  • Project managers: None.
  • Team reshuffle: Jason moves to Ignite, Jesinta and Shane move to Unity.
  • Task: To create a print ad, event, and commercial for Mark Bouris' company Yellow Brick Road
    • Result: Despite Team Unity's posters were better than Team Ignite's (according to Mark Bouris), Team Unity forgot to put the phone number for Yellow Brick Road.
    • Winner: Ignite
  • Boardroom:
    • Fired: Jesinta and Shane (first; as part of losing team), then Jason.
    • Hired: Julia.
  • Notes:
    • Polly, Max, Deni and Didier were brought back to help in the final task. Team Unity chose Didier and Deni, and Team Ignite chose Polly & Max.
    • This was the first time in the Australian series that there were no project managers in a task.
    • The losing team would be automatically fired, and the winning team would battle it out in the boardroom for the title of The Celebrity Apprentice and $100,000 for their charity.
    • This is Julia Morris's fifth consecutive task win, the longest winning streak by any candidate in the Australian series.
    • When Julia won (after thanking everyone) she asked to have the money split 50/50 between herself and Jason for their charities. Mr Bouris agreed and promised the $50,000 would soon be delivered.

Season 2 (2012)[edit]

Filming began on 15 January 2012 for a second series,[2] which is expected to air on the Nine Network in late 2012.[3]

Candidates[edit]

Following the success of the first series, it was reported that many Australian celebrities had expressed interest in participating in a second series of the show.[4] Reports regarding the participation of Chopper Read,[5] Nikki Webster,[5] Kris Smith,[5] Julie Goodwin[6] and Stephen Belafonte[6] as candidates failed to eventuate, with media reporting in early January 2012 that David Hassellhoff[6] was set to appear in the series alongside former MasterChef Australia contestant Marion Grasby and The Amazing Race Australia winner Nathan Jolliffe,[5] as well as other expected candidates including Ian "Dicko" Dickson[5] and former Australian rules footballer Jason Akermanis[5]. These celebrities were all confirmed as candidates on 16 January 2012, with the full line-up of participants also consisting of Patti Newton, Charlotte Dawson, Lauryn Eagle, Vince Sorrenti, Fiona O’Loughlin, Ben Dark and Tania Zaetta.[2][3] It has also been confirmed that Hasselhoff will be raising money for Surf Life Saving Australia,[2] while Newton and Dawson's chosen charities are SIDS for Kids and the Smile Foundation respectively.[2]

Notes[edit]

  • a Upon the disapproval of Mr. Bouris, the female team changed their team name from "Bouris' Babes" to "Ignite" following the first challenge.
  • b Lisa was absent from the fifth challenge due to previous engagements, therefore she replaced in the challenge by fired contestant Warwick.
  • c Didier and Max were fired simultaneously in the boardroom following the fifth challenge, and with no difference in challenge wins, Didier's success as project manager in the third challenge places him higher than Max's failure as project manager in the first challenge.
  • d Shane and Jesinta were fired simultaneously in the boardroom following the eighth challenge, with Jesinta's four challenge wins placing her higher than Shane's three wins.
  • e The "Grand Final" episode, which aired on 21 November 2011, was split into three parts: "Challenge", "Boardroom" and "Winner Announced".[27]
