A second Celebrity Apprentice star has blasted the show for its manipulative montage, after The Veronicas whined about their ‘villain’ portrait for the past two weeks.
Radio host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli also claimed to have been the victim of unfair editing on Wednesday.
The 41-year-old said Tuesday’s episode of the Nine program was edited to make it look like he had well-known gastro shows when, in fact, he said no such thing.

Wippa played sound bites from the show Fitzy and Wippa and claimed they were proof that producers had squeezed his words together to change their meaning.
This technique is known in the TV industry as ‘franken-biting’.
He said: “When people go to reality TV shows and complain about the editing, everyone goes ‘edit, edit, edit’ and they say ‘but you said it’. [But] it’s taken out of context.
“Last night there was an edit on me where it sounded like I was saying I had gastro. I never said I had gastro; basically I said, “They said it could be gastro, I don’t have gastro.”‘
He then played a Celebrity Apprentice sound bite in which he clearly said ‘I’m pretty sure I have gastro’ – but insisted that this quote was actually composed of several audio clips.
Not happy: Wippa, 41, said Tuesday’s episode of the Nine program was edited to make it look like he confessed to having gastro in the air when, in fact, he said no such thing
“Listen to the montage here where they take the part where I said, ‘I don’t have gastro’ and they just took the gastro line and put it at the end of another sentence,” Wipp then claimed.
It comes after Jessica and Lisa Origliasso of The Veronicas publicly complained about their portrayal on Celebrity Apprentice.
They have criticized Nine on several occasions for what they consider to be sensational editing techniques.
Their feud escalated last week when they posted an open letter to Twitter accusing producers of hiring them under false pretenses.
They claimed that Nine promised them that the show would focus on their charitable efforts, but in the end it was all about the competitive aspect.

“You signed us up for your show under the guise of charity and heart,” they wrote.
“Our sincere intentions and passion reduced to an edit – depicting us forcefully arming other team members and outwardly using our mother’s condition for sympathy is disgusting.”
Lisa and Jessica’s mother, Colleen, has Lewy body dementia and a rare neurological condition called progressive supranuclear palsy.
The sisters, who care for their mother, appear on Celebrity Apprentice to raise money for The Brain Foundation.

Their open letter continued: ‘It was you who constantly asked us to repeat our charity and why we were there and you turn and arm our words and our mama’s name – turning them into a knife used to kill us. to stab in the heart.
‘You should be ashamed.’
“What you have done to us is heartbreaking, soul-destroying and the worst thing you could ever do to us as wives, daughters and caretakers,” they added.
“You used us at the most vulnerable time of our lives. This was never a game for us, this is our reality that we fought for.’
Spat: After a fight with co-star Camilla Franks (pictured) that aired on the show last week, the twins taunted the producers on Twitter for portraying them as “righteous brats”
After a fight with co-star Camilla Franks that aired on the show last week, they lashed out at the producers on Twitter for portraying them as “righteous brats.”
They wrote, “The fact that you’ve thrown out all the facts so that we become the title brat – expecting favors and using our mother’s condition to an advantage is really the lowest you could have gone. I hope you pay your editors well for the souls they sell.
“The fact that they’ve edited this to look like emotional manipulation and extorting people for sympathy is appalling. Being gas-lit during an edit on something so close to our hearts is beyond comprehension.
‘We are grateful that money has been made for all the charities involved.’
