Tito Ortiz beats Gene Simmons on Celebrity Apprentice


On Episode 3 of the Celebrity Apprentice, Tito Ortiz lead the men’s team to their third consecutive win over the girl’s team (this week lead by Gene Simmons). As Project Manager, Ortiz seemed to rely on a lot of his teammates to come up with the sales pitch and execute the plan to sell the Kodak products.

It looked like Tito was going to fall flat on his face as spilled coffee on a laptop caused all his teams artwork to go up in smoke. Then they used Kinkos to print lame banners that didn’t fit their set-up. Tito is lucky he had Steven Baldwin selling his ass off on this task.

Much to The Donald’s dismay, Gene Simmons stubbornly ignored Trump’s advice on who to bring into the boardroom and was told “you’re fired”.

For those keeping score at home, there was no Jenna sighting on this weeks episode.

    haha score 1 tito

  • Paul Balsom says:

    i guess, if you consider him not saying more than 2 sentences the whole show and being the project manager a score. Tito is coming across very scared in this show. We’ll see how Ricco does on Celebrity Rehab starting next Thursday.

  • Brent says:

    You never really know how much Tito brought to the table on his task. Remember, this is “reality tv”. They edit the shit out of these shows. It’s hard to believe, but Tito was probably behaving too normal this week to get any screen time, which led to the producers focusing on the other members of the team.

  • That was actually a pretty good episode. and lol at Stephen Baldwin causing the whole table to fall over and spill coffee all over the team’s laptop computer that contained all of the crucial art assets that they had just spent eight hours creating.

  • Sam Cupitt says:

    Wait so Tito was project manager and Gene Simmons was …

  • No, Gene Simmons was sent over to the other team at the beginning of the episode, so Simmons was the project manager of one team and Ortiz was the project manager of the other team, and Ortiz’ team kicked the ass of Simmons’ team, who were completely bogged down by Simmons’ egomaniacal delusions. Even after it was all over and his team clearly lost, Simmons said that everyone else is wrong and he is right about who won. Then again, earlier in the episode when he was told what the Kodak executives were looking for in the campaign, Simmons said, “They’re wrong!” as apparently he knew what they were looking for better than they did.

    I totally missed the boat on this one. I pick Simmons to win the whole thing.

  • Sam Cupitt says:

    Did Trump say your a champion but your fired? Or was that just a promo not meant for that episode?

  • Evan says:

    How are they referrencing Tito? A Fighter? Cage Fighter? UFC fighter? Something else?

  • Mr. Takedown says:

    Tito is labeled as “ultimate fighter”

    whenever they can, they use Lennox and Tito in ‘championship’ or ‘fighting’ poses and other promotional shtick.

  • Paul Balsom says:

    They never mentioned the “i love you, you’re a champion, but you’re fired.” I guess they were stringing us all along. boo to that.

  • Mr. Takedown says:

    Actually Trump did say that. But he was recalling what he said to Nadia the Olympian last week when he fired her. Yeah, they do a good job in using the promos to pull you in. I too thought he was going to fire either Lennox or Tito this episode

  • Sam Cupitt says:

    I have a feeling Trump may take kindly to Tito seeing as he made a pretty decent company from scratch and what not.

    I saw Trump on Letterman and they were discussing the apprentice, and they were running down the list of people in it and when Tito’s name was mentioned Trump seemed pretty complimentary and Letterman referred to him as the “ultimate fighting champ” and the crowd almost clapped in support.

    Then Trump mentioned how during the show they play up the idea of who would win boxing vs mma, and he asked letterman who he thought would win and he backed Tito…

    >, Gene Simmons stubbornly ignored Trump’s advice on who to bring into the boardroom and was told “you’re fired”.

  • Scottrese says:

    Jenny Finch was an olympic champion, I think. She’s hot too, amazon – YUMMY! I thought they were gone to fire Jenny b/c of the promo about being champion.

  • Cameron says:

    Did anyone else think it was weird to see Tito with boxing gloves on not MMA gloves?

  • Derek B. says:

    no not really Cameron. You will usually SPAR and practice with Boxing gloves on.

    when you’re throwing around 16 oz for a while…it’s easy to throw around a 5 oz glove.

  • […] survives another week of Celebrity Apprentice Last night Tito got his chance to head his team, and apparently everything was pretty fucked up. If it wasn’t for one of the washed up […]

  • The Fast National Rating for Celebrity Apprentice was way up this week from last week, from 5.2 all the way up to 5.9. I assumed that it would continue sinking and thought that The Donald would pull his elaborate comb-over right off if the ratings ever sunk below 5.0, but it looks like that won’t be happening, at least not quite yet.

  • 162-0 says:

    Face it, Tito didn’t get fired because the Donald still hopes to get in a 3-way with him and Jenna, and Gene got fired because he too damn arrogant. The only thing Tito’s done in the past 2 years is beat a washed up Ken Shamrock and bed the worlds most worn out female. Yeah rah!!! He probably had help on both.

  • Jody says:

    Trump’s “I love you, you’re a champion, but you’re fired” was directed at Nadia.
