No, no, no! Jesse James belongs in “Celebrity Apprentice’s” final two!

How disappointing was it tonight when Donald Trump fired Jesse James on “Celebrity Apprentice”?

I'll take another helping of Jesse, please.

I'll take another helping of Jesse, please.

Honestly, I think Jesse is more qualified to compete in the final task than Joan Rivers. But naturally, it all boils down to ratings. And evidently NBC thinks more people will tune in to watch the cat fight between Joan and shrewd poker player Annie Duke than if the final two were Jesse and Annie.

I’m not so sure, though. Judging by the amount of traffic Jesse has attracted on this blog, I would say that’s not at all the case. I’m guessing that a lot of women – myself included – find Jesse smart, funny, attractive and likable. He’s also extremely mysterious. The guy has tons of tats and has an insane need for speed. He’s also been married to a porn actress. (Yup. More on that in a future post.) Yet on “Celebrity Apprentice” he comes across as reserved and quiet.  (At least on this show. His upcoming Spike series, “Jesse James is a Dead Man,” will probably be a different story.)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Clearly, this guy is a study in contrasts. And that’s what is so fascinating about him. He draws you in and makes you want to learn more. I totally understand what Sandra Bullock sees in him.

And really, Trump’s reasons for firing Jesse were pretty lame. Sure, Jesse’s a quiet dude who keeps his hand close to his vest. He also never used his wife’s notoriety for his own personal gain. Then again, he didn’t use it to for the collective gain of his team, either. But was that reason enough to fire him?

I don’t think so. Bring Jesse back!

    I would just like to applaud Jesse for going on the show and doing what he was suppose to do. Get down and dirty and work for your team and do the task that is asked of you…. If Donald’s celebrity show is only about who has the riches friends that they can call and guilt them into spending huge loads of cash to help them win, then Jesse is better off being off the show. I for one applaud Jesse for not stooping to calling his friends/ wife and begging for donations.
