This season of the Celebrity Apprentice begins January 4th so you have until January 11th (before the second episode airs) to submit your team.
To register for the pool:
1. Choose a name for your pool team. If there's something specific you want for your avatar, let me know. Otherwise I'll make one for you based on your forum name or team name.
2. Choose one contestant to be your team leader and earn double points for you.
3. Choose four additional contestants for your team.
The contestants you have to choose from are:
The Points Schedule for the pool is as follows:
Each Episode: 5 points
Team Member Points
On the Winning Team: 3 points
On the Losing Team: 0
Sent to the Boardroom: -3
Project Manager Points
Volunteers or Selected as Project Manager: 5 points
On the Winning Team (Won Reward for Their Charity): 3 points
On the Losing Team (Automatically Sent to the Boardroom): -5 points
Made it to Finalist Review (final three or four): 5 points
Final Two: 10 points
Season Winner: 30 points
Runner-Up: 15 points
Project Managers take more risks--when a project is a success, they win money for their charity. When a project fails, they are always sent to the boardroom and very often get fired. For that reason, project managers on the show will be scored differently than the rest of their team.
Project Manager and Team Member points do not stack. Each contestant will get one score for the episode. If they were on the winning team, they'll get 5 points for the episode plus 3 points for being on the winning team. If a contestant is fired, they'll get 5 points for the episode but then lose 5 points for being fired. They won't lose an additional 3 points for being sent to the boardroom.
In keeping with the spirit of the show, instead of having a reserve contestant, you'll be allowed to fire a contestant and replace them with a different contestant. To fire a contestant, you can post in this thread or send me a pm indicating that you wish to fire so-and-so (name the contestant you're getting rid of) and replace them with somebody-or-other (name the contestant you're hiring). There are two conditions, though. If you fire your team leader, your replacement leader must be one of your existing team members in order to earn double points. Your previous team leader will be demoted to regular team member. If you choose a contestant not on your team to be your new leader, they will not earn double points and your previous leader will be removed from your team. You only have until the sixth episode to fire a contestant. After it airs, you're stuck with the team you have.
Feel free to ask questions if any of that isn't clear.
