Celebrity Apprentice crowns winner after record-breaking season
The Celebrity Apprentice winner has finally been crowned after a tumultuous season of boardroom dummy spits and off-screen scandals.
Ross Noble and Shaynna Blaze were given the final task of planning and hosting a VIP charity event in just two days, with the contestant who raised the most money victorious.
And in the end, it was Shaynna who won by a landslide, raising almost half a million dollars for her chosen charity.
Comedian Ross thanked former teammate Wippa and comedian Sam Pang for help organising his unique event: “the experience of robbing a bank”, explosives and all, to raise money for the Australian Red Cross.
Meanwhile, Shaynna held a charity auction for her anti-domestic violence foundation, Voice of Change, performing a song she had written especially for the occasion in front of glamorous guests including The Block's Scott Cam.
When it came to the final boardroom, boss Lord Alan Sugar asked them both why they had chosen their specific charities.
Shaynna revealed her passion for giving victims of domestic violence a voice comes after having not been "unscathed" by domestic violence herself.
Similarly, having lost his home in a fire, Ross' support for the Australian Red Cross comes from a personal cause too.
Ultimately, Shaynna’s charity auction raised the most money, raking in a massive $326,000, while Ross’ bank heist experience made an impressive $83,500.
The Block star was named the winner, scoring a further $100,000 for Voice of Change.
Over the course of the series, Shaynna managed to raise a total of $475,000, a new record for the Australian Celebrity Apprentice.
