While Sam Frost had her debut as The Bachelorette last night, her ex, Blake Garvey (who infamously proposed to Frost on The Bachelor 2014 before leaving her for another contestant), was fired on competing reality show, Celebrity Apprentice.

After offering to be project manager for ‘Dream Team’ Garvey was immediately on the back foot with at least one team member, Entertainment Reporter Richard Reid, cutting him off when Reid put his hand up as 2IC.

“Doesn’t project manager get to decide who will be 2IC?” Garvey quipped, and everything pretty much went downhill from there.

The team lost the challenge, asking them to organise a themed tour, including catering and setting ticket prices. Customers would then be the judges of which team did it best. Spoiler alert: Not Garvey’s…

Big boss, business tycoon Mark Bouris, didn’t tiptoe around the axing. ‘Blake you’re the project manager, you failed to raise money,” he said. “You’re to blame for this failure. On this occasion, you’re fired.’

Sam Frost, meanwhile, was definitely winning. Even throwing the deep-voiced ex-Bachelor shade to a contestant who mentioned he was from Perth (also the hometown of Garvey). “Don’t you know someone from Perth?” The suited Bachelorette man asked. “Nope, I don’t know what you’re talking about…” Sam replied.
