Donald Trump on 'The Apprentice'

"Do you sort of regret having said that?" Trump asked Maria Kanellis on season three of the NBC reality show.

Donald Trump repeatedly dismissed his crass comments about women as "locker room talk" when leaked audio tapes from 2005 put the Republican presidential candidate in the hot seat during Sunday night's debate. But resurfaced footage from The Apprentice show the former host once fired a contestant who was put in a similar position.

On Monday, The Daily Show posted a video to its Twitter account of Trump reprimanding professional wrestler Maria Kanellis for treating his "boardroom" like a "locker room" on season three of the NBC reality show, which aired in 2010.

In the clip, Kanellis confronts fellow contestant Curtis Stone for using the bathroom in the girls' dressing room and attempts to air out their disagreement in front of their boss, Trump. 

"The reason why I said that you were so arrogant is because you came in our dressing room, and you took a crap and left the stench in the room," she says, to which then-host Trump replies, "It’s a little bit random, don’t you think? That’s pretty tough."

He then sides with Stone and adds that her accusation is "a little below the belt."

As Kanellis defends her comments, Trump asks, "Do you sort of regret having said that? It is sort of gross, though, bringing that up. It’s like disgusting."

The ultimatum? "This is my boardroom, it’s not a locker room. Maria, you’re fired."
