Liza’s firing in The Apprentice Season 10 Episode 12 brought us down to a final two of Clint Robertson and Brandy Kuentzel, one of whom will be The Apprentice Season 10 winner.
We finished off the evening last week with Poppy’s realization that Clint had misspelled the name of their concert performer, Liza Minnelli, on $4,000 worth of printed materials, a move of sheer stupidity. Over on the other side, their photographer went to a golf club 2 hours away, and Donald Trump unfairly handicapped them by taking away one of their members for the afternoon.
Clint says that the spelling looked good last night. He’s not sure what happened. For all the (fake) drama, the end result is that they do have enough money in their budget to get everything redone.
Brandy’s team plans to have Kathy Griffin greet the golfers. That plan doesn’t work since they don’t get her up there in time, and all the golfers leave, presumably without even knowing/caring they missed anything.
Trump has decided he does not like playing in a threesome. I’ve got an idea. Why not take one more person from Brandy’s team to just tilt the odds a little bit more? She finds them two more players from somewhere because Trump wants a big advantage.
Ivanka’s not sure Clint could lead as effectively without the assistance of Steuart, who seems to be doing everything.
As Clint enters a competition to see how many times he can say the word y’all in one sentence, Steuart is worried whether Clint’s Texasness will come back to bite him. While it may not exactly suit a golf club environment, I’m assuming Trump is comfortable enough with Clint and has considered this already.
Apparently, Liza Minnelli is still releasing albums, and even more apparently a very few people are still buying them. Trump couldn’t find a more contemporary artist, perhaps one who’s charted in the last couple decades?
Brandy tells Trump she chose the team because she likes them, but also that she doesn’t work well with Mahsa (who does?). Mahsa’s response is that Brandy brings personal things into the tasks, but she does not. Really, Mahsa? Delusional, party of one.
Trump never heard of the prizes Liza chose for the winners. The winners didn’t either because they just left the products behind.
Poppy was very impressed with Clint, and she thinks Brandy is phenomenal. In an unusual change from the norm where those who come back for the final task feel obliged to choose who they worked with, Poppy would pick Brandy.
Stephanie will not be so nice. Shocker. She was upset with Clint during the task because he was on the golf course, rather than in his own place doing his own thing. She thought this display was pathetic, and Brandy thought it was desperate.
Anand would back Brandy. Steuart is finally a vote for Clint. Mahsa doesn’t like either of them (or anyone else), but she, too, would pick Clint. Liza would choose Brandy.
Ivanka was impressed with the execution of the dinner and how Clint’s team engaged the golfers. Don Jr. thought Brandy’s team did a great job, but the prizes were not very good.
Brandy makes an interesting pitch. She’d like to learn alongside one of the Trump kids, rather than old man Trump.
In a move that’s been building throughout the hour and particularly the last 15 minutes, Clint is fired. The Apprentice season 10 winner is Brandy Kuentzel.
No matter what Trump may say, the ratings this season have been a joke, far lower than even the Martha Stewart version, which is a shame because this season was entertaining to watch. No chance we’ll end up seeing it again, though we should expect the D-listers make their return in The Celebrity Apprentice.
