The Celebrity Apprentice Episode 13

The Celebrity Apprentice: Did the Best Man Win?

The first season of The Celebrity Apprentice ended last night with its final boardroom firing and I must say, it was probably my favorite episode of all. Maybe they should consider doing all episodes live because everyone seemed much funnier to me last night, especially Trace. It also could be that high stress levels make him loopy, and I can very much relate to that! Listening to him talk about wheatgrass shots and shortening the Backstreet Boys to "BSB" made me laugh — though not as much as when Trace, Piers, and their celebrity teammates were swaying in a line to the smooth melodies of the BSB.

All of the previously fired celebrities are on set for the live final boardroom scene. Most of them are Trace supporters, though several give Piers credit for being an aggressive businessman that knows how to raise a lot of money. Gene Simmons gives a patriotic-inspired speech via satellite from Japan, and while his vote goes to Trace because of his intangible goodness, he did admit that Piers generally got stronger results.

Piers brought in the most money and the most celebrities, but he also brought the most ruthless game and made the most disrespectful remarks. Trace performed all of the challenges to the best of his ability while maintaining his dignity, and his leadership style made his teammates want to work harder. In the end, it simply came down to the numbers — do you think Donald chose the best celebrity apprentice?

Yes, Trump is a dweeb. I liked both Piers and Trace, though. Trump is horrible when he's live. He cuts everyone off, etc.

I was actually shocked that Trump chose Piers. It was the unpopular thing to do, and barely anyone agreed with him. If the person was really going to then work for him, he would definitely want Piers over Trace, although Trace would be most people's pick for friend. Unfortunately for him, it's not called The Celebrity Friend. Trump was awful, though. He's such a bully and was so disrespectful to Carol.

I wanted there to be a tie. While I liked Trace a whole lot better as a well rounded player, I liked Pier's charity a little more.

of course Piers was the right choice. I mean... as far as I know, this show isn't about dignity and good things, but money. And Piers was best on that. In the first place I think Trace didn't have to be in the show in the first place, because he's a good likable person, and the apprentice is not for that kind of people, is for people who like to argue, who knows business, etc. He was so nice. Piers was my favorite since the beginning. WUUUUUUUUUUUU PIERS!

Trace wasn't even close. While he's likable, he would have been a lot more impressive if he had let his team work on silly tasks like the drugstore or wheatgrass and concentrated on more important things. Good episode though- I wonder what's next for the Donald?

it depends on what you mean buy who should have won. Piers really did raise a HECK OF A LOT of money - so he really did a great thing, however Trace was successful as well and the manner in which he did things was great. Piers just happens to know more people who have more money to donate i guess.

Trace is THE man, but Piers is driven and much better suited for the tasks. He's a real go-getter but definitely the devil's advocate.

Trace held up his end of the task , but all people care about is money not how successful you are at a game.

Yes, Donald was choosing the most successful celebrity in terms of money brought in to charity. I think he chose right :) Trace is my favorite but in all honesty does not have the eager beaver drive of Piers.
