It’s a duel of the fund-raising dynamos with Marlee Matin and John Rich battling it out for the title of the next Celebrity Apprentice. But before they can plead their case to Donald Trump on Sunday’s finale, they have to plead it to me! They — along with interpreter –to-the-stars Jack Jason — join yours truly on the newest edition of the InsideTV Podcast to break down the entire season and why they should be named the winner.

How does Marlee’s police officer husband feel about Meat Loaf’s donut-obsessed cop? How does John Rich feel about Star Jones’ crush on him? Which players got a raw deal by being fired too soon? And would they have actually voted for Trump for president? The two finalists tell all, including John Rich revealing that there was another ’80s icon with a Celebrity Apprentice past that he tried to lure in to help him with his 7Up Retro ad. (Listen to find out who it was!) All that, plus we start casting for next season!
