This season, “The Celebrity Apprentice” has been plagued by off-screen health problems. It’s hard to watch the show without thinking of Bret Michaels‘ horrifying ordeal as he was sidelined by an emergency appendectomy, a near-fatal brain hemorrhage, a warning stroke and the discovery of a hole in his heart.
Despite his most recent hospitalization, Michaels’ rep says he still plans to attend Sunday’s (May 23) live finale. He and fellow contestant Holly Robinson-Peete have made it to the final round, where the winner will have the opportunity to deliver an extra $250,000 bonus check to their charity of choice.
The competition between Michaels and Robinson-Peete has already been taped, but in keeping with “Celebrity Apprentice” tradition, the board room scene where Donald Trump makes his final decision will occur live, in front of an audience, on Sunday night.
Both contestants have had a very successful run this season. Bret’s creative genius and risky moves have served him well when creating radio spots and putting together a Right Guard commercial. Holly’s leadership skills and financial savvy led her to win the Celebrity Workout challenge… and helped her deal with Cyndi Lauper’s lack of focus.
So who is your pick to win? Will Bret take the $250,000 to the American Diabetes Association, or will Holly bring it back to the HollyRod foundation, which funds Autism research and awareness? Vote in our poll!
