The former Survivor winner was sent home on Sunday night after the men's Team Backbone lost this week's art challenge and he was deemed to have raised the least money for the group. The task involved each team creating their own art to sell at a gallery. They also designed baseball caps for extra profit.
The men saw another departure in the form of baseball player Jose Canseco, who chose to exit the competition to care for his ill father. Mr Trump gave him $25,000 for his charity B.A.T., which provides support to baseball players with medical needs.
John Rich steps up as PM and immediately tells the team that he expects everybody to pull their weight. "I will make this declaration and I'm deadly serious," he adds. "If you don't bring a donation I will hold it against you later on in this whole situation."
The men head to the art supplies store where Meat Loaf becomes frustrated with Gary's apparent sense of "entitlement". His anger eventually boils over in a furious outburst after the team return from the store and he believes Gary to have taken some of his supplies. "You don't want to start with me!" screams Meat Loaf. "You don't want to f**k with me!" Watch the full outburst below:
Gary is adamant that he has done nothing wrong but Meat Loaf remains incensed. Mark tries to calm him down while John takes Gary outside. He tells Gary to stay outside the room until Meat Loaf calms down but Gary wanders back him prompting more screams from Meat Loaf. Eventually John interjects, calling the language and energy "embarrassing" and reminding everyone that they are working for charity. Meat Loaf later apologises to Gary for losing his temper, admitting that it never solves anything and he is embarrassed at himself.
The men set up their art gallery in time and the donations start pouring in. John invites a group of his friends from Nashville to visit, while other celebrities donate to the cause. Richard, however, seems to be struggling to sell his artwork. He privately says that the other members of the team are in an industry with rich friends and connections while he isn't.
La Toya volunteers to be PM but Marlee steps up to the role instead. She tells the women that she doesn't want any more backstabbing or fighting: "Let's act like adults. We are a team." She privately says that she wants to test La Toya with this task, asking her if she can provide anything from her family. La Toya is worried that she won't be able to get anything from LA to New York in the time they have, but proposes making artwork in memory of her late brother Michael and how much she misses him.
The women's team, however, seem "very discouraged and very dead" when Donald Jr. visits, and their luck doesn't seem to get any better when they are stuck in traffic en route to the art gallery. Marlee is initially disappointed at the number of people waiting outside when they open late, but the donations soon start flooding in.
Mr Trump announces that La Toya won the baseball hat challenge with her Michael Jackson-inspired design. She is given $25,000 for her charity, AIDS Project Los Angeles. It's time for the numbers. The men raised $626,908, while the women raised $986,000 - an all-time Apprentice record! Mr Trump decides to give Marlee another $14,000 so that she can give an even $1 million to her charity.
He then asks for Marlee's advice - should he fire one of the men or allow them all to stay? She confers with her team before telling Mr Trump that it's business and he should fire somebody. Mr Trump then asks the women to remain in the boardroom while he decides which man should go home.
Mr Trump, however, decides that it comes down to money raised and Richard failed to deliver, so he is fired. Richard jokes that he was all prepared to defend himself but never got a chance. He says that Mr Trump is a "sharp, amazing guy" and he's enjoyed working with him, but he disagrees with the decision.
