Prinnie Stevens was the first person to be eliminated from The Celebrity Apprentice after the fish and chips challenge. She put her head down and worked hard in the kitchen to cook the food, but in the boardroom her feedback from Mark Bouris was that she didn’t utilise her talent enough (singing) and didn’t hit up her black book of contacts, such as stars from The Voice, for donations. It came down to Prinnie and Big Brother 2012 runner-up Layla Subritzky, but in the end it was Prinnie who had the dreaded words, “You’re fired,” directed at her. I caught up with Prinnie at the CLEO relaunch party to get her scoop on the show, as well as her thoughts on the new season of The Voice.
What was the most surprising thing about doing the show?
Just how much everybody clashes, and just how celebrities don’t get on [laughs]. I thought it was going to be all fun, but there’s a lot of hard work that’s involved, and it’s hard asking people for money for charity — even though we know it’s a great cause, it’s hard to get people excited about giving away their money. But it was a great cause and I enjoyed every second of it.
How did you feel about the boardroom scenes?
So scary! Mr. Bouris is the scariest man I’ve ever met in my life — and the most handsome man I’ve ever met in my life!
