When my mom told me yesterday she was going to watch Celebrity Apprentice for the first time, I thought I would join her. I had never seen it before either and have seen enough ads for that and the restaurant show that I figured I would give it a look see. I thought my mom was watching because of David Cassidy, but it turns out she is fascinated with Lil Jon. She thinks he is funny and actually likes his music too. Who knew?!?
Lets take a second and talk about the restaurant show. Does anyone remember that show on BBC where the couples all got to have a restaurant and they closed one down each week? I loved that show. Loved it. After seeing the coming attractions for the rest of the season, it looks like this is a copy of that show. Sure, it is fast food as opposed to a sit down place, but who ever owns that other show better be getting some licensing fees or should really sue. Just saying.
Bobby Flay as a host. Hmmm. Not the greatest catch phrase. He looked stiff. The only time he perked up was when the attractive blonde made her presentation. Everyone else wanted to pass, but Bobby quickly jumped on Curtis Stone and said it is a culinary problem. Yeah, he will probably want to fix that with long, late night strategy sessions. I thought the first show was kind of boring and very sweaty. The challenges look similar to the British show, but should be interesting. I thought the best idea was the fixed calorie place or the bite sized BBQ, and the person I want to win is that woman who has Limbo. The devil and good place. Oh, and even as a straight guy, I have to say Curtis Stone is a damn good looking guy.
Celebrity Apprentice - David Cassidy is a whiner. Jose Canseco looks like he has taken drugs, Richard Hatch is an a-hole of biblical proportions and Star Jones has some very rich friends. Who had the idea to put Dionne Warwick on the cash register? I think John Rich, or Lil Jon are the best bets on the guy's side and on the women's side, I say Marlee Matlin will win. How much money do you think Russell Simmons gave?
