Trace Adkins ended up on the chopping block for the first time Sunday (April 7) on this year's all-star season of Celebrity Apprentice. But Trace escaped as his team's project manager, ex-NBA bad boy Dennis Rodman, took the fall.

Trace's new (losing) team, Power, lost the challenge because of a glaring error on a magazine ad campaign for the skin care line created by Donald Trump's wife, Melania.

Problem is, the ad—put together by Trace—declared that the boss' wife's name is "Milania." For the record, Trace didn't actually misspell the name. The team had an assistant graphic designer who made the mistake, but Trace created and approved the ad.

"That's just embarrassing. It really is," Trace told Trump.

Lucky for him, Dennis approved Trace's approval—and Dennis had been in hot water before, so Trump fired the multipierced Rodman.
