Donald Trump has singled out one contestant as a winner in the season 6 finale, which has Trace Adkins and Penn Jillette as the last men standing.
The season 6 of "The Celebrity Apprentice" has finally come to an end as a winner was finally revealed. Last week, two remaining contestants Trace Adkins and Penn Jillette were given a task to create a new flavor of Walgreens Delish ice cream, produce a promotional video, and raise money for a launch event featuring the new flavors. In the May 19 episode, both finally launched their events, which became the decisive factor for each man's destiny.
Taking charge of promoting Maple Macadamia Mashup flavor, Adkins and his partners, including Lil Jon, Gary Busey and Marilu Henner, at first had trouble finding donors for their launch event. His worries were over as Thompson Square, Billy Ray Cyrus and Wynonna Judd showed up along with a few other country stars. Adkins' last hope to get big money, Tim Tebow, finally came a bit late to support the country crooner.
Jillette, meanwhile, seemed to have no trouble in raising money. Launching "Magic Swirtle" flavor, the comedian and musician drew countless celebrities, including Wayne Newton, Gilbert Gottfried and Taylor Hicks who handed him a $10.000 check. A former mayor even showed his massive support by giving a $250.000 check to Jillette, who teamed up with Lisa Rinna, La Toya Jackson and Dennis Rodman for this challenge.
Donald Trump arrived to check how the two men had done so far. When the business mogul asked the people which flavor they loved the most, the majority went for Adkins' since Jillette's seemed to taste a bit bland.
As the events were all wrapped up, it was time for all to go back to the boardroom. Even though the execs were in favor with Jillette's name of the ice cream and his presentation, they thought that the packaging was a big no. As for Adkins, he had done a great job with the name of the ice cream, but the maple as a flavor was too specific.
Adkins raised $564.000 for the American Red Cross while Jillette brought in $503.655 for Las Vegas-based Opportunity Village. Serving as co-advisor, Joan Rivers thought Jillette was the winner because she identified more with him. Ivanka Trump stuck to the rules, saying that the show was after all about raising funds for charity and therefore choosing Adkins.
Even though Trump had made it clear that the winner was not solely determined through the money raised, [SPOILER ALERT!] Adkins was eventually declared the winner and given $250,000 for his charity. In addition to that, Walgreens added another $100.000 to the donation.
