Kendra wins The Apprentice 3; Tana says “it was all bullshit.”
Donald Trump’s first female apprentice and the winner of The Apprentice 3 is Kendra Todd, a 26-year-old real estate developer. She’s been the obvious, apparent choice for at least two weeks now. During the live finale from NYU, Trump told Tana that “for every week other than the last two, you were truly a star, more so, I think, than Kendra. But Kendra, in the last couple of weeks, stepped up to the plate and just knocked it out of the stadium.” Thus, he hired Kendra, although I think he should have hired both of them. Kendra will renovate a mansion in Palm Beach–in between media appearances, of course.

After the finale, during a live TV interview with a Des Moines station, Tana was “combative and agitated,” according to the Des Moines Register, and “she was naive to believe that a ‘street smart’ person could win.” Then Tana said, “It was all bullshit.”
