One thing that's for certain on this year's season of Celebrity Apprentice is that TV host and actor Darren McMullen and model Jarrod Scott do not get along. At all.

The pair failed to see eye to eye from day one when Jarrod asked to be project manager and Darren quickly took the role from him, leaving the model criticising his direction of the first challenge. The men's team ended up having a hugely successful fundraiser, making a record amount for their charity.

On Monday night's episode, things escalated with Jarrod becoming project manager of a food delivery challenge and Darren accusing him of being a "narcissist".

The pair had a Gordon Ramsay-style blow up in the kitchen after Jarrod decided to stop taking orders as their team was already running very late on their deliveries.

"What happened? It was a s**tfight," Darren asked after returning from a delivery.

Jarrod asked what he meant, with the host unleashing on him, "Mate listen, everything was late, everything rocked up cold. You talked a big game. You were like, ‘I’ve f***ing got this, I’ve got hospitality experience, you were s**t last week Darren’ and I’m like ‘fine go for it, mate’ and I backed you.

"One of our team is probably going to go home now."

Jarrod kept his cool, replying, "If that's the way it is, that's fine, but -"

"No it’s actually not fine," Darren hit back. "Why is that fine? I don’t want any of these guys to go."

As Jarrod attempted to explain what had happened, Darren continued, "Mate you’ve been nothing but talking and telling other people to shut up."

The Block star Ronnie Caceres was seemingly over the pair's constant fighting and suggested they both be fired, telling the cameras, "They're the cancer in our team."

Chatting with Yahoo Lifestyle, Ronnie spoke about the feud and shared his thoughts on how it began, saying, "There's one thing about Darren, that when he gets told to do something he will do it. That's why I call him a puppet because I felt that the producers were in his ear and he will just listen to the producers and he will just use his charm to get people on his side. He's very good, he's very good at talking s**t.

"He can make things up on the fly, like no one else. I don't know what the feud was – whether Jarrod was so incredibly good looking, maybe Darren saw that as a threat and wanted to get rid of him? Because I never understood it."

He continued, "I never got it, because Jarrod was actually a smart guy. He was there for the right reasons and he was there to play the game.

"It really has come across that Darren is really after him, especially [on Monday night's] episode, man! And one minute he's nice to him. And then he goes away and talks to someone and he comes back and he just rips into him and I was like, 'Who are you? Because you're like chalk and cheese.' But yeah, it did come across quite, quite full-on."

In the end, the men's team lost and Jarrod put former NRL player Eloni Vunakece and actor Vince Colosimo up for firing, with Eloni being sent home.

When Jarrod returned to the boardroom, he told Darren that the team "came for blood" in their critique of him in front of Lord Sugar.

"That was all true though man, what we said. You didn’t listen. You actually legitimately didn’t listen," Darren responded.

"I’d be careful... I’ll give you that piece of advice," Jarrod said with a sly smile.
