The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 Season Finale “And The Winner Is” airs Sunday, May 20 on NBC (9-11 p.m. ET).
Episode Synopsis: Live from New York City, it’s The Celebrity Apprentice season finale. The finalists scramble to finish in time for their celebrity charity event, and for the first time ever, the two finalists must work together to make sure their variety show goes off without a hitch. With 10 Celebrities performing, it’s the biggest finale event to date. In the end, Donald Trump makes his final decision, live – who will be fired, and who will become The Celebrity Apprentice. Boardroom advisors Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.
This season, eighteen business-savvy celebrity contestants will compete, not for a job with the Trump Organization, but for the greater goal of raising money and awareness for their charity of choice. The last person standing will be chosen as the Celebrity Apprentice and have the honor of delivering a $250,000 bonus check to their designated charity.
Every week, the celebrity contestants will work in two teams, each under the guidance of a designated project manager, to compete in business-driven tasks around New York City, using their fame, along with their proven business acumen, to win challenges. Contestants are subjected to long hours, grueling deadlines, intellectual challenges, personality clashes, and intense scrutiny under the careful watch of Donald Trump and his advisors.
Certain challenges encourage contestants to reach out to their network of celebrity contacts for assistance or donations, leading to surprise visits by some of the world’s biggest stars and pop culture icons.
Each task will end in the boardroom, where contestants must account for their actions and be judged by Trump and his advisors. Returning this season are Trump’s children and colleagues, Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric.
“The Celebrity Apprentice” is produced by Mark Burnett Productions in association with Trump Productions LLC. Mark Burnett, Donald Trump, Page Feldman and Nancy Gunn are executive producers.
