TV Grapevine - Sammi T
After a montage of each person's time on the show, we finally get down to business.
Clint is worried about the spelling error and tries to talk the printer into fixing it. By staying calm, cool and collected, he is able to do so within budget. This impresses Poppy.
They work on a plan of execution, the main task being to make sure everyone gets something to eat on time.
The team meets Liza Minnelli, which seems to go well despite how worried Clint is. As Mahsa gets her bags, Clint checks on Kathy Griffin and offers her snacks. He mispronounces endive, which does not impress her.
Clint goes around the room introducing himself and offering them food. Steuart doesn't like the fact that he overuses the word y'all.
At the dinner, the buffet seems crowded and everyone worries that people may not get to eat since there is only an hour to get 500 people to eat before the show.
As everyone finally settles in, Clint gives a speech talking about the evenings events and introducing Mr. Trump.
Mr. Trump congratulates Clint and Brandy before introducing Kathy Griffin. She does a comedy routine and gives out prizes to the winning golf players. The girls are still worried about the value of the prizes, but nobody seems to mind.
Liza Minnelli performs and she is amazing. I can see why she is considered to be such a legend.
Meanwhile, Brandy's team greets the photographer, who finally showed up after accidentally going to the wrong location. Kathy Griffin also shows up and they discuss what will happen during the event. However, they are late, so Kathy is unable to give her welcome speech. However, they try to get things under control and make the guests feel as special as possible.
There is a mixup with the golf team, so Brandy has to scramble to get someone else to Mr. Trump so he has a foursome instead of a threesome. Kathy talks with the VIPs and I have to say she really knows how to work a room--or in this case, a golf course.
Ivakna shows up to check in on them. She especially loves the gifts and how they explain the portrait of each of the teams.
In the end, they think they did a good job and get ready for Clint's dinner.
Brandy says she chose her team due to her respect for Anand, Stephanie and the fact that she and Liza have been there together until the end. She also didn't want her and Mahsa not getting along to distract her.
Mahsa makes a comment about Brandy making it personal and thinks she redeemed herself.
Anand also thinks he redeemed himself.
Mr. Trump says the winners left the prizes behind and asks what happened with the gifts. Liza and Anand say they chose the prizes instead of gift cards. Brandy says she trusted them and they let her down.
Mr. Trump and Ivanka think Clint overused y'all as well, but Mr. Trump thinks he did a good job.
Poppy would choose Brandy as the Apprentice.
Anand chooses Brandy.
Stephanie says Clint was disrespectful showing up at the golf course during Brandy's task. She also chooses Brandy for the win since she is a business professional and people need a woman like her.
Steuart chooses Clint.
Mahsa chooses Clint.
Liza chooses Brandy.
Ivanka was impressed with Clint's work at the dinner and how he interacted with the golfers. She also thought the decor was gorgeous.
Don Jr. thought Brandy's team did a good job despite the prizes not being what they wanted. He also thinks everyone had a good time.
Mr. Trump says thank you to the fired contestants, calling them all stars and that if they need something in the future, they can give him a call.
After they leave, both Clint and Brandy state their cases as to why they should be the Apprentice. I am particularly impressed with Brandy's idea to work with Ivanka, Don Jr and Eric as the next generation for the Trump brand.
In the end, BRANDY IS HIRED! CONGRATULATIONS! Also, congratulations to Clint for making it till the end.
Brandy is greeted by her fellow competitors with hugs and kisses and congratulations. They toast her as another season of the show ends.
That ends this season of The Apprentice. Thank you to all my followers this season and please join me in March for the next season of Celebrity Apprentice, which is rumored to include Lisa Rinna, Marlee Matlin and David Cassidy. Goodnight!
In my opinion Clint hurt his chances by how much time he spent around the golf course during the golf tournament. In my opinion it was more than just being disrespectful to Brandy and her team. I'm sure it made Trump wonder how much of his task was executed by him vs being delegated to his teammates.
As for the prizes accompanying the trophies, I'm glad it didn't cost Brandy the job. Although just because it was a golf tournament, it didn't mean they had to be golf related, they could been anything even theater tickets. Fortunately Trump didn't hold that against Brandy. Although I do think what put her over the top was that Clint's answer to where he saw himself in the organization was about the organization today vs Brandy's answer of looking ot the future.
All in all, I say YA Brandy since we needed another female winner. With her win, we now have 4 female winners to 6 male winners(yes I'm including the Celebrity Apprentices).
