Ziering relocated to New York City to vie for the title on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice. Besides being a clothing entrepreneur – though he's also Chippendales-approved and ready for any tasks that require shirtlessness – Ziering has one major edge one his opponents: Have they ever faced off against a throng of sharks? That is, not in the boardroom …

If the Shoe Fits...

Our sixth project was to build a step van into a mobile shoe display for the Ivanka Trump shoe collection currently sold at Nordstrom department stores. Kenya Moore was our project manager, and she was well-suited for the task. This girl knows shoes! Every day she wore a killer set of dogs that demanded attention.

Kenya knew what she wanted and was very good at doling out responsibility. We had to furnish the van, shop furniture rental stores for displays, come up with slogans and put together graphic art. I was able to locate an event planner who was instrumental in getting me a huge video screen to display all the shoes I photographed as well as set up a link to the embedded screen that was visible on the outside of the truck. Team Infinity worked very well together.

Cosmopolitan Project

For the teams' fourth task, we had to come up with a four-page health and fitness layout layout for Cosmopolitan. Having Terrell Owens and Johnny Damon on our team really helped focus us on what we needed, content-wise. We also used our athletes as fitness models.

Geraldo Rivera modeled, too. With his infamous "selfie at 70" from last summer, he's feeling quite confident these days.

It doesn't really matter what else happened in the world Wednesday night, because the premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One took place.

The so-bad-it's-good SyFy Original returned to showcase airborne sharks imperiling Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and a small army of celebs in cameo roles.

Sharknado 2: The Second One is officially the channel's most watched Original: 3.9 million viewers tuned in Wednesday night for the mayhem.

And the film absolutely took over Twitter: It delivered an estimated 1 billion impressions, and held all 10 trending topic slots at one point. There were more mentions of Sharknado on Twitter than #MileyCyrus during the 2013 VMAs, #kimye on that fateful wedding day, and #transformers4, #thelegomovie, #godzillamovie and #22jumpstreet on each of those film's respective premiere dates.

Below are our favorite reactions to the TV movie. Please feel free to add your own comments, or take to Twitter using the hashtag "#Sharknado2TheSecondOne."

"Like everyone else out there that's seen Sharknado, I didn't think it was the greatest movie ever," a candid Ziering tells PEOPLE. "But what I was so scared of – people have embraced."

Despite New York City's occasionally troubled subway system, we only know of one instance in the recent past where commuters dealt with, um, sharks.

Until now.

In this clip from the forthcoming Syfy original movie, Sharknado 2: The Second One, Ian Ziering and Mark McGrath face down a threat considerably more dangerous than a panhandler or persistent busker – a massive shark.

Sharknado 2 Takes a Bite Out of the Big Apple

After enduring several major snowstorms this winter, New York City is now facing a new severe weather alert – a hail of man-eating sharks!

Sharknado 2: The Second One shot on location in Times Square, and its star, Ian Ziering, treated onlookers Monday to a glimpse of his celebrated chainsaw skills. (In the first TV movie, Ziering, 49, memorably sawed himself out of a shark's belly.)

Although the first Sharknado was a ratings disappointment, it did prove to be a social-media hit, generating up to 5,000 Tweets a minute during the broadcast.

Sharknado Trends on Twitter, But Not So Much on TV

Originally posted 07/13/2013 11:50AM

Sharknado-mania swept social media Thursday night, but outside of the Twitterverse it looks like most people chose not to take the sharkbait.

Recently released Nielsen ratings show that only about 1.4 million people watched SyFy's shlock masterpiece, which "realistically" (cough, cough) features man-eating sharks attacking unsuspecting Los Angeles residents after getting blown to shore by an epic storm.

According to USA Today, the Nielsen figure is downright average for a movie premiere on this channel, which has found a niche trotting out awesomely bad horror flicks. (Case in point: the 2011 film Mega Python vs. Gatoroid starring '80s queens Tiffany and Deborah Gibson.)
