Explaining 15 seasons of awful 'Apprentice' team names

There are a few signs that immediately alert a channel-surfing viewer that he or she has landed on an episode of The Apprentice. Is there a group of men dressed in suits ranging from dressy casual to bolo tie? Are there women using speakerphone in a nondescript white van? Is either group filming a commercial of some sort about a cleaning product or frozen food?

If so, congratulations, you’re watching The Apprentice, or maybe you’re watching The Celebrity Apprentice, or perhaps you’re in the future and watching The Toddler Apprentice or 2 Fiscal 2 Apprentice or El Aprendiz: Estas Despedido!

Gary Busey auditions for the Mars reality show on 'Kimmel' -- VIDEO

When news broke that there was going to be a reality show where people traveled to Mars to establish a human settlement in 2023, lots of people joked about who they would want to send up there. Well, Jimmy Kimmel has a suggestion. On his show last night, Kimmel showed the ”first official video application” for the Mars program. Wearing a tin foil hat, a shirt with the word Mars on it, and a purple cape, Gary Busey hummed and danced around a miniature solar system, claiming he should be one of the lucky few that gets to go to Mars… because he’s been there before.

”When you find yourself eating part of your calf muscle, you should not be on Mars!” Busey said. So true.

I’ve often considered All-Star Celebrity Apprentice to be a work of art — surreal art, to be exact — so it was appropriate that tonight’s task involved the teams selling their own art to the highest bidder. When all was said and done, another celebrity was fired. My full recap will be up later (UPDATE: Click over to read Dalton’s full Celebrity Apprentice episode 5 recap) but if you can’t wait to find out or sound of on who was cut loose, then read on for more.

Tonight’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice episode featured the triumphant return of red-cowboy-boot wearing pimp daddy Farouk Shami, who tasked the teams with coming up with interactive marketing campaigns for two of his hair care product lines. For Farouk, it meant his favorite thing in the world — being surrounded by beautiful women. For the contestants, however, it meant one of them would be fired before all was said and done. My full recap will be up at 2am, [UPDATE: Dalton’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice recap is now live] but if you can’t wait to find out who was sent packing, then read on for more.
