Donald Trump Crowns New Celebrity Apprentice: Who Was Hired?

at . Comments

It came down to an Oscar winner and a country superstar on last night's season finale of Celebrity Apprentice.

And, after a year of Presidential campaign teases and NeNe Leakes-bashing, Donald Trump announced that John Rich had defeated Marlee Matlin in one of the most hotly-contested races in show history.

Trump referred to it as his "toughest decision" yet.

"Today has been an unbelievable day!" Rich said. "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 Hospital. This entire experience has been for the kids and I'm so excited to raise money for this cause and help save lives."

Did The Donald make the right decision?
