    Wow! No live finale! Budgetary reasons?

    Anyway, I thought Brandy was chosen for obvious reasons. She's young. She's pretty and most of all she has no southern drawl!

    Clint would have been a better choice. He has more experience and at 40 yrs old with a wife and kids deserved a break. I have no doubt the exposure is going to help him though.

    This season was disappointing. Bring back the Celebrity Edition!

    Yeah she was the right choice.

    I think that girl maybe smiled twice all season... :)

    The didn't do the big drawn out live mess because ratings sucked big time for this one.

    I like that they just cut to the choice and end ned to draw it out over 2-3 eps.

    Celeb one starts January I think.

    Wow, a celebrity edition of something where I've heard of over half the celebs (13 out of 16). That's pretty impressive, especially considering how poorly the show has been doing lately.

    If that really is the list of celebs, I might actually have to watch again. I skipped this season of Apprentice and while I hate that Trump basically just keeps people around for his own (ratings) reasons it can still be entertaining. There are some interesting celebs on that list.

    I was surprised that the blond chick that went out a couple of weeks ago was hired by Trump for something else. That may also happen for Clint. I really liked him.

    Brandy did a pretty good job all season, plus she pulled off the last task without a teammate because Trump whisked her away to the golf course*. Wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't get offered something from Trump also.

    *This was the same person that made the mistake with the prizes... she might've told Trump about her poor decision while carting around with him during the day.

    Not sure how long Cassidy will last because Khloe Kardashian was fired for having/dealing with a DUI.

    It was a drag the way the Minnelli spelling error was resolved so quickly and painlessly. I had really hoped Clint was going to have to deal with that. The end was so anti-climactic.

    Clint really should have won. I felt like Brandy just skated most of the season. Clint got heavily involved in every task and generally did a good job. But Brandy, if she wasn't project manager, seemed to "check out" on some tasks if things weren't going the way she liked.

    I actually liked this season. Maybe not the best "regular" Apprentice season but it kept my interest. I looked forward to watching it every week. Its too bad that it can't get the ratings the Celebrity Apprentice gets, but I guess that's understandable given America's TV preferences these days. :(

    I thought Clint was possibly the most skilled and charismatic player on any non-celebrity Apprentice so far.

    I think Clint should have won as well.

    The WTF for me was no loser speech or contestant update for Clint at the end.

    Clint's education and background made him a shoe-in to be the apprentice. I do wonder why the girl was picked. Though she's no dummy, Clint was the best person for the job. here's my thoughts
    1. Trump liked the way she looked. I kind of dismiss this because he has tons of ways to be near pretty girls so I don't think this is it.
    2. NBC pushed him to pick a girl. Although a woman has won in celebrity apprentice, no girl has won on this standard show. I think this is the most plausible reason to make the pick he did.
    3. Maybe he's afraid of being seen as a chauvinist and picked the girl for this reason.

    Rather than quote the last several posts, I'll just post my opinion on why Clint didn't win:


    I have a feeling (fair or not) that his constant "y'all"s during the final task (and throughout the season, for that matter) could have been the nails in his coffin. No matter how much paper he had, no matter his CEO in a box speeches, I just don't think Trump could get past the hickness. And Clint telling Trump he wasn't faking and that's his normal conversational style may have sealed the deal for Brandy.

    This isn't right. Kendra Todd won season 3, and Stefani Schaeffer won season 6, both of which were "regular" seasons.

    I too was surprised Clint didn't win. My only problem with the finale was that it seemed so rush. There really wasn't even much board room and Trump really never gave a reason for why he even picked Brandy. To me, it looked like Clint had this in the bag!

    and why was everybody afraid to throw Leeza under the bus for picking the golf clubs?
