TANIA Zaetta is less than pleased with the way she's been portrayed on Celebrity Apprentice.

The Bollywood actress was sent packing tonight by host Mark Bouris after her team lost a carnival-themed challenge.

"I was disheartened from the first few episodes," said Zaetta, who is the face of weight-loss brand OptiSlim.

"I understand, as well as pretty much all of Australia, that reality television shows aren't real.

"It's a production company that make characters for a movie, literally."

Zaetta, whose early clashes with athlete Lauryn Eagle had some comparing her to Deni Hines from series one, said the way the show was edited even blew away a seasoned entertainer like herself.

"The previous episodes I've watched, I've been sitting on the edge of my seat not knowing the twists and turns that are coming up next, and I was there," she said.

"It's too obvious to have Charlotte (Dawson) play the villain, so it was probably a less obvious choice to have everyone turn against me."

Despite the bitchiness and backstabbing, Zaetta is still glad she went on the show.

"I'd seen the show in the UK and I'm very familiar with it in the US," she said.

"I loved it because it showcases other business talents that you wouldn't know about some of the people.

"Now that I'm living back in Australia, I wanted to showcase what I'm capable of doing in terms of the business side of the industry."

Zaetta certainly proved herself capable of raising money for charity, bringing in a whopping $80,000 in just four episodes.

"No matter how it's come across on TV, I have a smile on my face knowing I raised $80,000," she said.

"That means I've not only changed lives but I might have actually saved lives. It was worth it just for that alone."

She tips one of the male celebrities to take out this year's Celebrity Apprentice title.

"The testosterone has really kicked in amongst them. Some of their true colours are coming out," she said.

"I would like to see (Jason) Akermanis or Vince (Sorrenti) win. They were people who were very true behind the scenes."

Celebrity Apprentice airs Wednesdays and Thursdays on Nine.
