John Rich Named Celebrity Apprentice
John Rich is the new Celebrity Apprentice. Rich edged out Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin in the finale of NBC’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Sunday night. Donald Trump announced John as the winner of this year’s show during the live finale at Skirball Theatre in New York City.
The country singer took home another $250,000 for his charity, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. During this season, Rich raised over $1,000,000 for St. Jude’s. During the finale, John’s friends from the Melting Pot restaurant chain dropped by to give him a check for $25,000 for St. Jude’s, while executives for Dollar General gave him $250,000, sending him way over the one-million mark. More than $3 million was raised during the season, which is a record-breaker for the show.
