Donald Trump's first season of Celebrity Apprentice helped many worthy causes. Stephen Baldwin won more than once for his charity of choice named for his mother, the Carol M. Baldwin Cancer Research Fund. However, the final two on Thursday night’s finale were the tenacious Brit Piers Morgan versus the American cowboy Trace Adkins in the quest to become the first Celebrity Apprentice to win $250,00 for their cause.

Morgan is recognized in the US as a judge on America’s Got Talent and known in the UK for Britain’s Got Talent, in addition to his work as a tabloid editor. The tough as nails competitor won nine out of eleven competitions and raised over $500,000 for his designated charity, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. Trump helped Morgan add to his total to the tune of $250,00 as he was dubbed the Celebrity Apprentice winner. Critics say that he played dirty. Morgan states that he played the game to win money for his cause.

Morgan beat 12 other celebrities competing to win money for their charity of choice. Final two opponent Adkins was raising funds for the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network. His motivation to win was driven by his six year old daughter’s severe food allergies. The country singer performed a song which can be downloaded from the NBC website at cost to contribute fund’s for the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network.
