Tito Fired From Celebrity Apprentice, Earns Trumps Respect

Tito Ortiz fired

No more seeing Titos big head on National TV. Tito Ortiz was the latest contestant fired from Donald Trumps Celebrity Apprentice.

Omarosa says she tried to focus their ad to Redbook’s audience, but that they had no “concept.” Omarosa blames Tito and Stephen for this failing. Trace sticks up for Omarosa and holds Tito accountable for the team’s loss. Trump asks Tito who he would exonerate and he says that Omarosa worked the hardest. Trump says he finds this commendable, before firing Tito. But because Trump thinks Tito is such an incredible guy, he says he’ll personally give Tito’s charity $50,000.
