By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED May 14, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Rio headliner and Las Vegas resident Penn Jillette is determined to win and he is selling ice cream to do it.

Jillette and Trace Adkins were named as the finalists in NBC's "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" on Sunday night.

For the final challenge, the two of them were asked to create their own flavors of Walgreens Good & Delish ice cream.

The person that sells the most ice cream will win.

If Jillette wins, his charity -- Opportunity Village -- will receive $100,000.

Jillette's ice cream is named "Vanilla & Chocolate Magic Swirtle." It is being sold at all Walgreens and Duane Reade locations across the country.

Jillette was joined by several other Vegas headliners to kick off the sale of his ice cream including Taylor Hicks, George Wallace, the Blue Man Group and his partner-in-crime Teller.

The ice cream went on sale May 13.

"All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" is the sixth installment of "The Celebrity Apprentice."
