Just to let you guys know; I’ve actually done a quick switcheroo. The original number five place getter now stands at number four, and you may see why tomorrow.
Intro: Jesinta Campbell entered Celebrity Apprentice Australia as the only female model of the group. Expected to spice the competition up with her looks and charm; she quickly made headlines after being spotted in her bikini washing cars! All throughout the show, Jesinta made a name for herself as the young contestant with an eye for maturity. She was well spoken, received good criticism for her conduct in challenges and in the boardroom, and even managed a win as project manager in the first task! Jesinta made it all the way to the finale only to be fired at the final hurdle with team member Shane Crawford. Safe to say Deni Hines had something to do about that.
Why She Made The List: Originally, Jesinta Campbell was in number four position, however despite Nine’s love for her personality, I do believe she belongs at number five. Still, it aint a position to be sneezed at. Jesinta was one of the most prolific people to enter the show this year after Tweeted images of her washing a car in a bikini were unravelled. The audience fell in love with her and her honest game play. It took a while for her to learn the ropes, first getting in trouble for coming up with the team name ‘Bouris’ Babes’ and then for not answering Bouris’ question about who was the weakest link in a challenge with an honest answer. But after that, she became a shining beacon of hope. She was a firm favourite to win for a brief period of time, but in the end, I think Australia was just happy to have her in the final.
Legacy: Again, not really necessary for a celebrity, but this show certainly has fired up her career. Along with Cameron Williams, she will co-host Nine’s coverage of the New Year’s Eve fireworks. A very interesting choice that anyone who has watched Celebrity Apprentice knows will probably not backfire. She then begins a few weeks of weather watching with Weekend Today, which I believe begins on New Years Eve.
So I hope I’ve made the right decision by downgrading her to number five, but you should all agree that tomorrow’s entrant is nothing short of worthy of a top four position. The entrant made it in for their enormous generosity, which was equally matched by their spirit of the game. You’ll enjoy this one!
