It was a tough decision, but on last night’s live finale of Celebrity Apprentice, Donald Trump hired country music star John Rich and declared him the winner of Celebrity Apprentice 2011.
Rich beat out Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin, who Trump pointed out raised the most money ever on a single challenge for the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
Along with the title, Rich received a $250,000 prize for his chosen charity — St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital –- bringing the total amount he raised for the hospital to over $1.2 million .
The show’s charity earnings for the season were the largest amount ever raised by a TV series.
