NEW YORK, March 10 (UPI) -- Olympic ice skater Scott Hamilton was the second competitor fired from the U.S. reality series "The Celebrity Apprentice" this season.

Hamilton was ousted this week after the men's team lost their challenge for the second week in a row. Comedian/actor Andrew Dice Clay was the first contestant fired this season.

In the episode slated to air March 15, the remaining 14 contestants prepare for their next challenge -- to design a bridal store and sell 125 wedding dresses.

"One team almost falls apart after two of its celebrities stay out on an all-night binge while Joan Rivers' mouthing off is starting to get her in trouble," NBC said in a release. "The celebrities' rolodexes are put to the test, and both teams feel the heat as they try to get big sales lined up on short notice. Celebrities on one team have trouble getting friends to pony up money for charity. The fund-raising goes down to the very last second, putting one team over the top and the other team into the boardroom, where Trump fires another celebrity."

Clint Black, Annie Duke, Tom Green, Natalie Gulbis, Jesse James, Claudia Jordan, Khloe Kardashian, Brian McKnight, Joan Rivers, Melissa Rivers, Brande Roderick, Dennis Rodman, Herschel Walker and Tionne Watkins are the remaining celebrities still vying to be "The Celebrity Apprentice."
