So, Annie Duke lost against Joan Rivers in Celebrity Apprentice. Does this really surprise anyone at all? It is a known fact that Rivers is a friend of Donald Trump, and regardless of what we are all told about the business world, the world of business can be one big popularity contest.

However, let’s take a look at this a little deeper. How did each person come off to the American public as a result of this season of Celebrity Apprentice? Many people say that Duke came off looking like a bitch at times. Well, that has been many people’s perception of her in the past. Personally, I like Annie. I have had limited dealings with her, but she has always been awesome to me.

However, how did Rivers come off to the public? Narrow minded, racist, rude, and old are a few words that come to my mind. When I say old, she just reminded me of an old sarcastic old person that has their mind made up about the world and they are the only person that is right.

Next, let’s look at how much money was raised for each charity. Each person’s charity was supposed to be the reason they were on the show, right? Annie Duke’s charity, Refugees International, received over $700,000 from Celebrity Apprentice. Joan River’s charity, God’s Love We Deliver, received just over $500,000. That $500,000 included the $250,000 given to her charity from being declared the winner.

So in the end, who was the real winner here?

    I can't believe Trump let Joan Rivers abuse & interrupt Annie for so long.
    1 - For ratings. 2 - for his friend Joan. Trump gets a lot more money than any winner from this show, from product placements and for services provided to those companies (with free labour from the celebrities). Their charities were just an afterthought at the end.
    The judging of the final winner is so biased, it's like watching a fixed sports match. Total waste of time.

    Absolutely. Trump is a puritanical douche bag. Rivers was totally unprofessional and no one else would have gotten away with the garbage that old bag pulled.
