John Rich Could Be First Country ‘Celebrity Apprentice’
It's down to John Rich and Marlee Matlin on Celebrity Apprentice. He's in the finals and poised to the be the first country star to win. Trace Adkins came in second in his season, losing to Piers Morgan. Although, I thought he should have won! Clint Black was sent home in fifth place during his time on the show. Trace was the one to get Rich on the show. He put the bug in Trump's ear.
Rich may have had a little help along the way to the finals. Lil Jon, who was fired with Meatloaf during last night's episode, let the cat out of the bag on Ellen. Turns out the two have known each other for years.
Rich chose Lil Jon, Mark McGrath and Star Jones to help him win his final task. Tune in Sunday night to NBC to see if he can pull out the win for his charity, St Jude Children's Research Hospital. He's won more money for his charity than anyone else in the history of the show, other than his competitor Marlee Matlin. If he wins, St Jude will recieve two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. That's on top of what he's already raised. The win could bring his donation close to a million dollars.
I have to be honest, I wasn't a big John Rich fan before the show and wasn't planning to root for him. But after watching this season, I've had a change of heart. He's so creative. Most good ideas each week came from him. And he's got one of the biggest hearts. You saw it the week he agreed to cover the money Meatloaf raised for his charity, if his team lost. Plus his charity is the one closest to my heart, St Jude.
Good luck John. I hope you win. You and St Jude deserve it!
