John Rich wins "The Celebrity Apprentice" - Raises over $1 Million Dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

As another season of "The Celebrity Apprentice" came to an end last night that featured one of the most drama-filled star-stunned cast of celebrities in series history (John Rich, Marlee Matlin, Meat Loaf, Lil Jon, Star Jones, La Toya Jackson, NeNe Leakes, Hope Dworaczyk, Gary Busey, Mark McGrath, Richard Hatch, Jose Canseco, Dionne Warwick, Niki Taylor, Lisa Rinna, and David Cassidy), the debate of who should win this seasons Celebrity Apprentice came to a head?  John Rich or Marlee Matlin

But I think that, that debate really ended once one of the cast member said it the best, Marlee Matlin won the final task, but John Rich had the best season and I have to fully agree with that statement. Marlee Matlin had no real issues that I could see in her final task. Marlee and her team put one amazing 7up retro event on with the harlem globetrotters as the main entertainment. She and her team did everything they could to win including meeting and greeting all of the people attending including Donald Trump himself at the door.

But I do have to say while John Rich did have a few issues including starting the event 20 minutes early which meant that he needed some entertainment because Def Leppard wasn't available until 7pm, Rich still had a cool event that feature John Rich himself taking the blame and putting on a 20 minute concert for the people in attendance and once Def Leppard came on, it still was a good concert event. I really like Def Leppard music for some reason.

And I also have to say that personally I preferred John Rich's 7up commercial and can design over Marlee Matlin 2 to 1. Rich's 7up retro can just popped, it would get my attendance in a heart beat on store shelves if I was drinking normal soda. Of course 7up doesn't have a zero calories soda, so its Sprite Zero for me.

However in the end, Donald Trump got this one right and announced that John Rich won season 4 of "The Celebrity Apprentice" and Rich raised more than $1 Million Dollars for his charity St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I believe the final number was something around $1.225 Million Dollars and that includes the $250,000 for winning the season.

And John Rich won his beat with fellow country music star Trace Atkins. Congrats to John Rich, that was one amazing fund raiser for St. Jude's.
