His show’s over, and Mark Bouris is pleased to be done with two contestants in particular.
Celebrity Apprentice host Mark Bouris has given a no-holds-barred interview revealing there were two contestants he didn’t exactly, erm, click with on the show.
After Sophie Monk was crowned the winner, Bouris told news.com.au, there was one male and one female contestant with whom he felt a “personality clash” — describing their behaviour as “too good for everything.”
He also said they were prone to [w]hinging and carrying on,” and added that the two unnamed “Prima donnas” annoyed “the sh*t” out of him. (Woah, Mark. Tell us what you really think.)

The scathing interview follows a verbal attack on Bouris by contestant Gina Liano, 48. Last month, Real Housewives of Melbourne star and criminal barrister Liano gave an interview calling Bouris “rude and disrespectful” after the left the show due to a painful bout of illness.
“He is quite rude, he is dismissive and in fact I have never been in any scenario with a man who is so disrespectful, to be honest” the glamorous star said in a candid interview with news.com.au.
“I may not have even done the show had I known, to be honest.”
Speaking to news.com.au yesterday, Bouris said: “Gina’s very good at promoting Gina”.
He also questioned why she “persists on trying to be part of the show” after leaving.
“I might have had maximum, in the whole period, five minutes of chat to her. So I don’t really know how she makes her assessments,” he said.
Elsewhere in the interview, Bouris described an unnamed female contestant complaining constantly about the cold on the show.
“I’ve heard one particular person say it’s always too cold in the studio,” he said. “She complained a lot.”
While it’s unclear which male star Bouris didn’t like on the show, he did tell news.com.au yesterday that former Big Brother winner Tim Dormer, 31, had a habit of picking fights on the series.
“He did it in a way that was very, very clever. He made others look like they were picking the fight,” he said. “He’s very good at moving the chess board around.”
