It all comes down to this, folks! Tonight on Celebrity Apprentice, Trace Adkins and Penn Jillette were back to finish off their Delish ice cream task, each hoping to walk away the winner. But with the competition so very close, which one would Donald Trump give the win to?
Last week on Celebrity Apprentice, we were left hanging with Penn Jillette, who was struggling to get his commercial cut down. Don’t worry, he did manage to cut it down, and cut out the inappropriate crotch scenes. On the flip side of things tonight, Trace Adkins was struggling with trying to get enough celebrities to come out to the event!
As the Delish ice cream social began, it definitely looked as though Penn had it in the bag. He drew in countless Vegas celebrities, including the one and only Wayne Newton, who also handed Penn a check for $200K. Meanwhile, Trace Adkins saw the likes of Thompson Square, Wynonna Judd, and a few other country stars. But the biggest one for Trace was the much buzzed about Tim Tebow, formerly of the New York Jets.
As Trace waited anxiously for Tebow, who promised a big check, Donald Trump and his cronies arrived to check things out. It seemed as though the majority of the people he spoke to favored Trace Adkin’s ice cream, and I have to tell you, I personally tried both of these flavors just before the finale kicked off tonight.
For me, Trace Adkins’ ice cream won hands down, which I thought was ironic because before tasting them, I was certain I was going to like Penn’s better. The maple flavor of Trace’s was perfect – not too sweet, while Penn’s just seemed more bland, yet was loaded with overly salted pieces of chocolate. To each their own, right?
Finally, Tim Tebow showed up for Trace, but was it too late? We’d have to wait for the boardroom to find out. Then it was on to the fun! Penn’s commercial was awesome, and he even showed everyone the behind the scenes takes with Dennis Rodman, which were hysterical. Trace’s commercial was just as good (and hysterical) featuring Gary Busey, who seems to be from a completely different planet than the rest of us, ha!
Both guys did a great job, it was definitely a tough decision for Trump tonight. In the end, Penn raised over $503K, while Trace brought in $565K – without Tim Tebow’s donation, which was deemed late. In the boardroom, Donald Trump also donated $20K to each of the team members who didn’t win anything. And then when it went live to the contestants, Donald announced that he was donating an additional $100K to Lil Jon for the American Diabetes Association.
Oh, in case anyone was wondering (or cares), Donald opened a can of worms when he asked Omarosa if she and LaToya were finally friends. Needless to say, it ended up in a battle of she said-she said, ugh. These ladies clearly hate each other, and the feud is definitely going strong.
Back to business now. Walgreen’s also upped the ante, and decided to give the contestant who sold more of their ice cream in the past week, an additional $100K for their charity. That chunk went to Penn as more people purchased his ice cream this last week. But did he do enough to take the win?
After all of their hard work and dedication all season long, Donald Trump awarded the win to….
