The Celebrity Apprentice Preview: Celebs Vs. Harry Potter

It seems as though NBC is using Celebrity Apprentice as an opportunity to plug the new Harry Potter attraction that’s opening at Universal Studios this June. We have some clips from the episode, which has the celebs encountering Potter fanatics.

Shameless endorsements aside, I consider myself something of a Potter fanatic, so I’ll definitely be checking out this episode if it means catching a glimpse of the attraction. Below is NBC’s episode description for this week’s Celebrity Apprentice and further down are some clips from the episode. One of them features Goldberg as the Whomping Willow and another shows us why Rod might do well with an owl to handle his communications as modern technology is clearly too much for the former governor.

“THE PROJECT MANAGERS TAKE A TRIP TO THE UNIVERSAL ORLANDO RESORT TO LEARN ABOUT THE NEW ‘WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER’ ATTRACTION AND MUST RUN THEIR TEAM FROM AFAR – In this episode the celebrities are shocked when their project managers are separated from them before the task is even delivered. On a private jet, the project managers are informed that this week they must create a three-dimensional display to launch Universal Orlando’s newest attraction, “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.” Using only their cell phones, the project managers must run their teams from afar and report back with the information they’ve gathered. The men find their new leader scattered, while personal attacks continue to drive the women apart. In the end, one team hits the mark, and the other team is left to fight it out in the boardroom, where another celebrity is sent packing. Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump and Donald Trump Jr. also star.”

The Celebrity Apprentice airs Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
