Holly Robenson Peete you’re fired! 14 actors, musicians, athletes, models and a politician marked the beginning of Celebrity Apprentice season 9. But only one walked away with the big prize. Rocker Bret Michaels wins Celebrity Apprentice!
How did the night unfold for each dog eat dog finalist? It all came down to who had a better “Snappletude.”
The rocking brochure Bret passed out before his presentation hit a spark for executives. Michaels’ Snapple commercial used funny lines including “where’s my peaches” contributed from star athlete Darryl Strawberry. The Snapple commercial finished with some fancy editing. Michaels used the double technique by shooting two commercials and forming them into one. It was a risk – Michaels has proved to be a fighter against the odds.
During preparations for the Snapple ad Bret forgot the script at the studio and headed into a jam, script or no script? He ended up editing the Snapple ad without a script. Stress deemed full force.
But then Bret’s daughter, Raine Elizabeth Sychak, came to see him. Raine is borderline diabetic which gave Bret even more inspiration to score as top dog in Celebrity Apprentice. Michaels lives with diabetes since 6-years-old and entered Celebrity Apprentice to benefit Camps for Kids with Diabetes (American Diabetes Association).
Unlike Bret’s idea of editing two commercials into one, Holly used only one commercial. Holly’s Snapple commercial was cute with scientists comparing their “stuff” as they spoke swift to the point – the only thing missing was the point. It seemed to be lower in sound until it mentioned autism. Holly Robenson Peete entered Celebrity Apprentice to benefit the HollyRod Foundation geared to assist in autism. Holly’s son suffers from autism.
Donald Trump’s evaluation at the table seemingly was more stressful for Holly than for Bret. The discussion continued as Holly and Bret stared at each other when speaking of the given names of their Snapple drinks. Holly did have a habit of saying “it wasn’t as good as mine.” Was she wrong?
The Celebrity Apprentice finale resulted in high ratings with guests reappearing and the return of Bret Michaels. After some of the past participants returned to the table Donald Trump took a moment to poke fun at Rob Blagojevich by asking who thinks he’s guilty. In other light conversation Cyndi Lauper spoke proudly of raising 45,000 for the gay community and later headed over to the table entertaining Trump with her song I’m Just Your Fool.
America was pulling for Bret Michaels to win Celebrity Apprentice and America, Poison frontman walks away with the prize! Did Holly see it coming? She most likely did – it was written all over her dress. However, both Bret and Holly won – Snapple executives matched the prize for each by a quarter of a mill.
Bret’s support team did not want him to appear on tonight’s Celebrity Apprentice show but he appeared. Michaels recently went back to the hospital, found out of a hole in his heart and other potential complications – but Michaels continues to fight against the odds. Bret Michaels comes out a winner in more ways than one.
Bret Michaels is top Celebrity Apprentice for season 9!
