In what may just be the most important decision made by any person all year long — at least in terms of decisions involving 7UP, Def Leppard, and the Harlem Globetrotters — Donald Trump named his latest Celebrity Apprentice champion. Was it country crooner John Rich or Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin? My full recap will be up soon, (UPDATE: Dalton’s Celebrity Apprentice recap is now live!) but if you’ve already watched and want to sound off on who won, then read on after the jump for more! [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s Celebrity Apprentice finale.]

In an episode that began with two men literally rolling out a red carpet in front of Donald Trump as he walked down the streets of New York City, and continued with Gary Busey hijacking the live show so he could talk about his Omaha Steaks kite, Marlee and John fought to finish on their 7UP Retro ad campaign. In the end, however, only one could win. That one was John Rich, who overcame not greeting Trump and the 7UP execs, and announcing Def Leppard a full 20 minutes early, to be named the Celebrity Apprentice and win $250,000 for his charity, St, Jude Children’s Hospital.

What do you think? Did the right person win? Who won the last round of NeNe vs. Star Jones? And exactly how many close-ups were there of Lisa Rinna’s breasts anyway?
