The season finale of The Apprentice aired Thursday night, December 9, crowning Brandy Kuentzel Donald Trumps new Apprentice and sending finalist Clint Robertson home.
Clint and Brandy were each given a final task – Brandy was to plan a golf tournament that featured Kathy Griffin and Clint was to plan the dinner party that followed the golf tournament and featured a performance by Liza Minnelli. They were given a team of past contestants to help them on this task. Clint’s team consisted of Mahsa, Poppy and Steuart. Brandy’s team included Anand, Stephanie and Liza.
Both competitors did well on the final task, but mistakes were naturally made that were brought to light in the boardroom. The prizing for the golf winners, in which Brady was responsible for, was extremely below the caliber of what Trump golfers would expect. Clint’s unprofessional language was noted, with Trump’s daughter Ivanka commenting on how many times he said “Ya’ll”.
Ultimately, Brandy’s well-spoken, professional demeanor won Trump over. Clint was fired and Brandy was hired.
