    You can always count on Gary Busey to bring the crazy, whether he's playing himself on "Entourage" or stumbling through "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew." The man is a treasure. Casting Busey is so easy it's practically cheating.

    What really matters on Apprentice, though, are the celebs: This season's B- and (let's face it) C-listers are a good, volatile mix. [14 Mar 2011, p.42]

    Celebrity Apprentice is pretty much in its typical form, which is to say, craziness involving mostly D-list celebrities, including NeNe Leakes, Star Jones, Lisa Rinna, Gary Busey, Mark McGrath and "Survivor" winner Richard Hatch.

    As entertaining as the crazy can be, there's an undercurrent of pathos in Celebrity Apprentice, hidden in the way these people bow to "Mr. Trump" and submit to the contrived challenges as if they're in rehab cleaning toilets.

    This season should be called Celebrity Apprentice: Plastic-Surgery Edition. So many of them look like haunted marionettes.


    I have never been
    a huge fan of this show but I admit I caught the first episode and I may just be hooked. There are so many characters in this season but more ego and of course Gary Busey. Right there he is the one reason to watch for sure as everything that comes out of his mouth just makes no sense. You have to watch just to see how funny and insane he truly is and you will be hooked for sure. Expand

    This season of The Apprentice is more of the same. Silliness, celebrity egos, bickering and firing. If you like it, you will love this season. If you hate it, this won't change your mind. Expand
