Contestants are gathered and greeting each other at Radio City Music Hall, when Trump walks in with some Rockettes. He just says, "I loooove the Rockettes," then dismisses them. Great use of Rockettes on television. I hope they get their SAG cards for this. Trump tells the contestants how great Radio City Music Hall is. It's the greatest music hall in the world, of course. Trump: King of Superlatives. He asks if any of them have performed here, and a bunch have, including Gary Busey, who claims he once sang here with Sting for a rain forest special. WTF that means. Nene Leakes looks around and then interviews to the camera later that she's surrounded by Grammy winners and other successful people, but she doesn't give a shit about that. She is who she is: Nene Leakes! "I will take them down, one by one, and become the next Celebrity Apprentice."
Trump asks Star who she's playing for, and why she's putting herself through this. She's playing for the American Heart Association, because she had open-heart surgery seven months ago. She figures that, after what they did for her, she can put up with this for a while. Latoya's playing for AIDS Project Los Angeles, which her brother was very close to. Trump says that her brother was a good friend of his, who lived in Trump Tower for some time. John Rich is playing for St. Jude Children's Hospital, because they've never turned a child away and never will. Trump makes the bold move of agreeing that St. Jude is great. Rich says he didn't come on this show to get famous; he did it to raise money for St. Jude's. Period! He loves when people look at his cowboy hat and underestimate him. Marlee's translator Jack tells Trump that she's here to raise money for the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which provides hearing aids for people and children in Third World countries. She wants everyone to have the gift of hearing. Inspirational music plays while Marlee signs. I hope that doesn't always happen. Trump announces he's dividing them men versus women, and they all get excited. He sends them away to choose their team names, then they'll meet back at the boardroom to get a task.
