The Apprentice 2 concludes tonight.

The Apprentice 2 concludes tonight.
Three hours after it begins, the final episode of The Apprentice 2 will conclude tonight, ending the series and naming a winner. The three hours will include a reunion, the final boardroom, and Regis Philbin, plus the obligatory time-killing recap of the entire season. Either Jenn or Kelly will become Trump’s newest apprentice. So who will it be? I say Jenn, mostly because it’s a toss-up and Donald Trump will not choose another white 30-something male. But Trump tells the Sun-Times that sex won’t play into his decision: “Politically maybe it’s a little bit better to go with a woman.” Presumably with a straight face, he added, “But I always go with what’s best for the job as opposed to what’s best for entertainment. … I mean we could have kept Omarosa [Manigault-Stallworth of the first season] on for another three episodes and that would have been great entertainment, but it was her time.”
