Another season of the “The Apprentice” is over, viewers, and one lucky apprentice got to hear those hallowed words “You’re hired!” on Dec. 9. So who was it — former corporate lawyer Brandy Kuentzel or property developer Clint Robertson? The winner of a job with Donald Trump’s organization was (drumroll please!) Brandy.
The final challenge required each candidate to put on a charity golf tournament, which task provided challenges for both Brandy and Clint. Brandy was in charge of the first half of the tournament, which included arranging tables and coordinating comedian Kathy Griffin. Clint was responsible for the tournament’s gala, which included taking care of Liza Minnelli’s every need. Despite the difficulties each contestant faced, they both earned positive reviews.
During the final boardroom meeting, Brandy and Clint each pleaded their case. While Clint went for the cocky pitch (“I’m a CEO in a box”), Brandy went for sincere (“I would love the chance to work alongside Ivanka, Don, Or Eric, the next generation”). The fired contestants who came back to help Brandy and Clint with their final task were able to interject their opinion on who should win. All the ousted apprentices, save Steuart and Mahsa, supported eventual winner Brandy.
The next season of “The Apprentice” will premiere on NBC in March and will be another celebrity edition.
