Cheryl Tiegs has claimed that she is too nice to have succeeded on The Celebrity Apprentice.

The supermodel became the first star fired by Donald Trump this season when she was brought back to the boardroom alongside Victoria Gotti by Forte project manager Patricia Velasquez.

Tiegs discussed her early exit from The Celebrity Apprentice on Access Hollywood, admitting that she might not have been cut out for the reality series.

"I went into Celebrity Apprentice thinking that I could work with the team and be kind, be good. That's how I built up 12 companies in my lifetime," she explained. "I haven't been backstabbing and mean-spirited and I thought well, 'I'll show America that it's possible to be a nice person and to succeed'."

Tiegs added of her downfall: "The women's team - they were rather tough to work with. I liked the men's team a lot and still keep in touch with a lot of them."

Next week's episode will see Team Forte and Team Unanimous square off in a Medieval Times-themed task.

The Celebrity Apprentice airs Sundays at 10/9c on NBC.
