Donald Trump has a new apprentice, and this time the winner comes from the country community. Trump named country singer Trace Adkins the winner of his first-ever All-Star Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday night. Magician Penn Jillette came out as the runner-up of this season.
Adkins originally competed on the first season of Celebrity Apprentice, ending up as the runner-up that year. This time, the country music star took home the winning title. Along with a new job, Adkins won $250,000 for his charity, the American Red Cross, and another $100,000 from Walgreens. The company donated $100,000 to Jillette’s charity as well.
For the finale challenge, Adkins and Jillette had to create an ice cream flavor for Walgreen’s ice cream line. They were also asked to create a commercial and plan a celebrity-driven launch event to promote the new ice cream. Akins made $50,000 more in ticket sales for the event, which helped him towards securing the winning title.
But despite the win, Adkins and Jillette seemed to end the season on good terms. Jillette even accompanied Adkins on his guitar as the singer performed his single “Love Will.” Now that is what you call losing gracefully.
