‘You were talking about Russell Crowe before there – $10,000 of that money came from Russell, the Rabbitohs, the money came from him!’ he shared.

Ross revealed that he and the Gladiator star first met on a talk show in the UK. 

He explained: ‘We did a TV show in the UK, it was a chat show, I met him there. It’s a very small world!

‘He helped me out a treat and he didn’t get the recognition he deserves so I’m doing it now,’ Ross added, in reference to the Celebrity Apprentice. 

For the Celebrity Apprentice finale, Ross organised a high-octane bank heist experience complete with explosions, electrified stairs and a ‘mob boss’ for participants to deal with. 

Ross also got emotional during the board meeting, revealing he feared he would let down his charity, the Australian Red Cross, if he didn’t sell enough tickets.

‘It’s very personal to me, as my wife and I, we lost our house in a bushfire and the Red Cross actually supported us. Now I want to support them,’ he told Lord Sugar, referring to the 2009 Black Saturday fires.

He ended up raising $83,500 for his charity after running his action-packed experience.
