Celebrity Apprentice – And The Winner Is….
The announcement of Julia Morris as the winner of Celebrity Apprentice finale was not the highlight of the episode as there were so many more entertaining moments. Before discussing them props must be given to Channel NINE and Fremantle for producing a highly entertaining show. It is a sure thing that a second series will be made.
As usual Deni Hines was all about Deni and she was highly inappropriate at the launch when she grabbed the microphone and proceeded to tell Mr Bouris how she had sung and written the jingle. Clearly she was worried about her post show income as she continued her pitch at him later, as well as giving him a come hither look as she walked away. He did not look interested in either offers.
However Deni did have a point about Jesinta’s speech at the launch it was a little Miss Universe, whereas Shane Crawford grabbed everyone in an instant when he was talking about his mother. However that was about the only time this episode we got to hear Shane speak.
There is so much going on in the episode the less verbal contestants got little screen time. Shane Crawford is one of them. Another was Polly in he last two episodes she was in, we barely saw her. However special mention must go to Didier Cohen who has been a highlight in his to camera pieces as a commentator on the challenges and the contestants. He is normally pretty accurate with his take on people.
At the other launch “sincere” Jason was wheeled out. He has an interesting view of himself, as he sees himself as so sincere, but his opening gambit at the launch came across as the exact opposite. It was to sugar-coated. What was that crap about couldn’t wait until the end of the pitch so they could ask “where can I sign up?” The question I would like answered was did Jason sign up with Yellow Brick Road? I doubt it.
Julia did not make any of those claims but she at least connected with the audience.
Then it was off to the boardroom where we would get our last masterclass from Jason Coleman on how to suck up. He must have been green with envy when Jesinta burst into tears and sobbed about how important it is to have a goal.
Her goal in the board room was to smackdown Deni, or so it seem. Jesinta did a great job of calling out Deni on her behaviour, and in the ensuing debate she won it hands down.
And Deni like all bullies when stood up to backed down and started being sychophantic to her, in fact she made it sound like if Jacinta won it was down to her being difficult with her.
Deni when confronted about her behaviour by Mark Bouris said she had been doing it to make good TV everyone just shook their head in disbelief.
In the end Mark Bouris didn’t like either of the teams marketing material for Julia and Jason it was because it didn’t tell the consumer what the company actually did, and for Jesinta and Shane it the issue of no phone number on it.
Missing out the phone number was the great crime therefore Jesinta and Shane were fired.
Julia Morris was announced the winner, but ever the nice person she said she wanted the cheque split 50/50 with Jason Coleman, which meant he finally made some money for his charity.
