I was impressed with Gillette and Corolla in the opener but you guys are right, like Gene Simmons before them they will be tossed off for being brighter and wittier than the host.

No idea who might come out from the guy's side. Musicians have traditionally done well on the show because they are creative and used to being in charge but I don't know if Dee Snider is another Bret Michaels or Trace Adkins. There are no Piers Morgans in this group.

On the distaff side I will admit that aside from Cheryl Tiegs, Lisa Lampanelli, Victoria Gotti and Debbie Gibson I had either never heard of the rest of them (even though Aubrey O'Day was on the cover of Playboy, probably without that ridiculous dye job) or forgotten about them (Tia Carrere won a Grammy?).

I read this on one of the reality sites, so take it with a grain of salt, but it said that in most seasons they go for 4-6 celebrities who have loyal followings and then just fill in the cast with whoever they can get...

Apparently the ones who they considered "good gets" this season were Carolla, Gillette, Aiken, Lampanelli and Arsenio Hall.

I was going to say something cynical about Cheryl Tiegs, until I realized she was 64. Definitely wasn't suited for this show, and clearly needed a better bra, but seems like a really lovely lady.

How many Victoria Gotti mafia jokes will we have to endure before she stabs someone? Same for the gay jokes directed at Aiken and Takei...just seems awkward and uncomfortable after the 347th time.

Also, is there any doubt Paul Teutul gave that one big donation himself so he wouldnt lose?


I'd forgotten that when Trump Jr. was asking Gotti how many people she called that the Trumps and Gottis apparently run in the same circles, know some of the same people. Who knew that Trump was all mobbed up?

With all of his casinos in Atlantic City, no question they know the same people...

Maybe after he fires her, Donald Jrs head will wind up in his bed. :D

I have no doubt Trump - and his old man - have had plenty of dealing with mobbed-up union types over the years. Can't imagine Don. Jr. going near any of that real work.

Glad that horrid Gotti woman is gone. Now maybe we don't have to hear all the weak Mafia references.

I was surprised to read she is 50. She looks much older than that.

I thought Penn was great, even when Ferrigno wanted to break him in half.

Tweet from Lampanelli.

On that episode, I pull more stuff out of my ass to win than @GeorgeTakei and @ClayAiken put in theirs . . . COMBINED!

If Don Jr isn't douchey enough for you, they bring out Eric.

And have you noticed that Ferrigno sniffs a lot, much like Canseco did when he wad on the show.

Is it a roid thing? Don't know that Lou did roids, but he wad a body builder, so it's not a wild leap.

Lou has admitted that he did steroids when he was competing.

Glad Takei was booted. I've never been a fan.

I'm sure much of it is due to his disability, but Ferrigno is hyper-sensitive about every piece of criticism.

And I'm glad Carolla called out Patricia Velazquez for dropping "I was the first Latina supermodel" on every episode.

She and Ferrigno have the same problem. They have no sense of humor, particularly about themselves, and that doesn't work on a reality show populated with C-list celebrities.

The men's team got jobbed. Their window design was light-years better than the women's. I guess Donald wanna to gaze upon Miss Universe some more. Blech. I'm not a huge Corolla fan, used to listen to his podcast before I tired of it, but he was cracking me up last night with his comments.

Agreed, if you have to keep telling people this obviously nobody gives a shit.

Very impressed with Carolla and Jillette so far, still little to recommend on the women's side. And I agree, the men's windows made more sense than the women's did. And you just knew the women's call to Ivanka would prove to be one of the deciding factors. Foreshadowing remains your guide to quality reality TV.

I think it came down to the clothes. I know nothing at all about fashion, and even I could tell that the clothes Arsenio picked out were not what a successful businesswoman would wear in a workplace setting.

I loved how Arsenio tried to kiss ass by saying all of Ivanka's clothes are wonderful, so it didn't matter what he chose.

Yeah, I'm a huge Carolla fan. He's the only reason I'm watching this show (though I really like Penn Jillette and Lisa Lampanelli as well).

Lou Ferrigno needs to put on his big boy pants and stop crying when there's the slightest criticism against him. "I wake up in the morning and I give 110% ..." I feel like he has that playing on a loop and we're only in the third week.

Body builders are notorious for having low self-esteem. Being a body builder with a disability (which results in a speech impediment) probably increases that by a factor of 10.

On the one hand, this was total hubris by Carolla. His entire persona is built on complaining that everyone around him is an idiot, and it got him in trouble here because he didn't trust anyone else's advice.

On the other hand, he probably knew he wasn't going to win the whole thing. So I think he decided to just do the presentation he wanted to do and let the chips fall where they may. He's also a California guy and a homebody and was probably sick of New York.

It's a shame, because he's smart and capable enough to win this. And of course he's entertaining as hell.

Ferrigno and Andretti are equally weak. But Lou's a big baby and he annoys me.

Whatever. With Carolla gone I'm probably done with this show.

On Carolla's Friday podcast, he said, I'm doing Ellen's show and Leno on Monday, so draw your own conclusion...

The best news about last night is I no longer have to watch the show.
