NEW YORK, April 9 (UPI) -- Actor and bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno was the latest star fired from "The Celebrity Apprentice" in New York.

"Apprentice" judge and producer Donald Trump gave the former "Incredible Hulk" portrayer the boot on Sunday's edition of the business-themed reality show.

He was fired after he and his team failed to impress Trump with the 60-second commercial for Entertainment.com they created.

Still competing this season are comedian Arsenio Hall, magician/comedian Penn Jillette, "American Chopper" star Paul Teutul Sr., comedienne Lisa Lampanelli, former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza, singer and actress Aubrey O'Day and "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice.

Already eliminated from the show were singers Debbie Gibson and Dee Snider, actresses Tia Carrere and Patricia Velasquez, radio host Adam Carolla, "Star Trek" actor George Takei, IndyCar team owner Michael Andretti, author Victoria Gotti and supermodel Cheryl Tiegs.

The last person standing will receive a $250,000 check to be given to a designated charity.
