*“Celebrity Apprentice” is only four shows in, and already Arsenio Hall has found himself called back to the boardroom more than once.

The former talk show host says he doesn’t mind the stress of having to argue for his survival against Donald Trump, because it’s all for a worthy cause. He’s playing for the charity started by one of his best friends, Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

“You know what made me say, ‘I gotta do it?’ I realized that it was the 20th year anniversary of the Magic Johnson Foundation, and I was on the ground floor with Earvin when it all started,” Arsenio tells EURweb exclusively. “ And I was like, ‘You know what? I can’t go do this for the money or for the exposure, but for Earvin I’m there.’ That was the deciding factor for me, because this ain’t the kind of s**t you do unless you’re really committed to something or someone.”

Below, Hall and fellow contestant Tia Carrere say they know how to avoid looking crazy on the show. The secret: don’t do anything that can be manipulated by the editors.
