On Celebrity Apprentice, Natalie Gulbis becomes the world's most important golfer
Following Tiger Woods’ tragic and humiliating performance at the Masters (finishing 6th? Meh) many golf experts have made it perfectly clear that his days as golf’s biggest star are over. Which makes Natalie Gulbis the most important golfer on the planet.
Yes, on Celebrity Apprentice (tapes of which should be shot into space so other intelligent life can learn just how kick-ass we humans are) Gulbis has taken things to an entirely new level.
In this week’s episode, Gulbis was team leader, and deftly stayed out of her teammate’s way as they won the week’s competition. Thus, Gulbis was presented a check for $20,000 to give to her charity - the Boys and Girls Club of America.
Then, fresh off that scintillating victory, the Apprenticers were given another challenge that involved selling jewelry at an auction. The inimitable Donald Trump made it clear that the team’s needed to bring in lots of money.
That’s when Gulbis struck gold. Apparently, Gulbis has few rich friends. Times are tough, you know. However, on the opposing team was poker star Annie Duke, who can raise money like a crazy person. Gulbis came up with an idea, however - get one of Duke’s poker rivals to donate money and send Duke to defeat.
And we don’t know for sure yet, but the poker star that Gulbis was after is none other than Phil Hellmuth. We’ll find out next Sunday if Gulbis’ gamble will pay off. If it does, she actually may have a shot at winning this thing.
Now, I understand that not everyone reading this is following Celebrity Apprentice with the same fiery passion as I. All I can say to that is - your loss. Really the only thing the show is missing is the occasional knife fight. But they still have a ways to go, and it appears Joan Rivers may be secretly making a shiv out of her old cheek bones. So we’ll see.
So, once again, I advise all to cheer on Gulbis on The Celebrity Apprentice. After all, now that Tiger Woods is a non-factor, you’ve got to watch something.

Wait, what was the real topic again...?
Now, about Tiger. Don't forget that he has a victory this year at Arnie's tournament and if he slumps this year in the majors, well we will need to feel sorry for the guys next year when the majors will feel the wrath of a determined Tiger. I don't think that Tiger is a non-factor at all this year, it just when will he get everything together. You know that we the public and the golf journalists are just fueling his fire. I think we will know how the rest of his season plays out over the next 2-3 tournaments that are on his schedule.
Really enjoyed the article.
Eeeeuuww! Thanks for the gory story. I think.
But Mark is right about the staff meetings getting violent. If my memory serves me correctly, one of my first days on the job in Prague, Mark stabbed me in the hand over a piece of bread.
Not a sexist but that's what i was told in college that golf is mens only sport. Maybe my gym teacher was just a sexist.
