Who Won Celebrity Apprentice?

Celebrity Apprentice winner John Rich

Heading into the Celebrity Apprentice finale last night, it was a tight race between country singer John Rich, 37, and deaf actress Marlee Matlin, 45 (she looks great for 45 no?).

In fact Donald Trump revealed that this was his toughest ruling yet in the history of the show. “I’ve never had to go through something like this… You’ve both been amazing,” said Trump to both finalists before announcing a winner.

Ultimately, John, one-half of the country-music duo Big & Rich, came out on top, beating Marlee to earn a $250,000 check for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Marlee had been competing for the Starkey Hearing Foundation charity.

“Today has been an unbelievable day!” said John after his win. “I got Trump to put on a Stetson hat on national television and now I get to drive down to Memphis with a $250,000 check for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”

With the exception of Richard Hatch, who is back in prison for tax evasion (much to the delight of David Cassidy), most of the “fired” contestants returned for the live finale. Though noticeably missing was music legend Dionne Warwick.

Of course the Donald had to revisit the whole Nene Leakes vs everyone Star Jones drama. Nene claimed she had moved on and didn’t hold a grudge, only to yell over Star seconds later while Star attempted to answer a question from Trump.

And right before he made the winner announcement, Trump promised to do something he had never done before. What was that you ask? Well while he hired John, he did not fire Marlee. Rightfully so as there were no losers this season with over $3 million raised for charity– a record for the show.

It was also announced last week that Trump will return for another season of the Celebrity Apprentice.

TELL US – HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS? DID THE RIGHT CONTESTANT WIN?

Rocker and reality star Bret Michaels has been declared the winner of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” beating out actress Holly Robinson Peete.

Bret, 47, who has experienced some serious health problems including a brain hemorrhage and warning stroke, was able to make it to the finale show.  Other than a slight limp, Bret looked to be in good health.

Donald Trump told Bret he was “hired” in Sunday’s finale show. Bret won $250,000 for his charity of choice, the American Diabetes Association.  And despite coming in second place, Holly was also a winner as she was awarded the same amount for her charity for autism, HollyRod.

And this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Bret.  VH1 has announced it will preview Bret’s new reality show next Sunday. The show titled “Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It,” is scheduled to debut next fall.  For the time being, VH1 announced production on the show had been “temporarily halted,” with “Bret’s health as our primary concern.”
