Tammy and Sean are not engaged

Sean Yazbeck, the winner of The Apprentice 5, is backing away from the statement he made on the show’s finale that he planned to marry Tammy.

Trump asked him if he was going to marry her, and Sean said “yes!” Sean now says, “I thought I was answering whether I loved her.” He also told the AP, “We’re not getting married. At this stage, it’s way too soon to be talking about that.” The two are still dating, however.

Perhaps this reversal is due to the fact that, for some reason, women actually have a say in whether or not they get married, so it’s not just up to Donald Trump and Sean to decide whether or not Tammy’s going to be an additional prize for winning the show.
