Julia Morris has won Celebrity Apprentice.
She defeated Team Ignite team-mate Jason Coleman.
Morris won $100,000 for her chosen charity, National Breast Foundation but asked Mark Bouris to split the money with Coleman’s charity, the Song Room.
Team Unity’s Jesinta Campbell and Shane Crawford lost the final challenge after failing to include a phone number for Bouris’ finance company Yellow Brick Road on their printed materials.
Morris later said, “The Celebrity Apprentice was one of the most fun, exhausting, rewarding, confronting, insane and profoundly positive life-changing experiences I have ever had.
“I dedicate this win to my childhood friend, the glorious Sarah Kong, who lost her battle with breast cancer earlier this year. I know Sarah would have laughed non-stop at the ongoing silliness on the show and been blown away by the amount of money Mr Bouris and the rest of the cast helped me raise.
“Over $160,000 has been handed over to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, who will use the money for research to help rid the planet of this disgusting disease that is stealing the lives of our friends and family.”
The final episode also included heated exchanges between Deni Hines and Jesinta Campbell including boss Mark Bouris accusing her of derailing her team and a prize for charity.
But in a surprising twist Hines talked up Campbell’s skills as “one to watch.” It may have been too little too late for the singer who has endured an avalanche of criticism following her outbursts in the series.
The Nine series has proven to be a hit for Nine and made significant impacts to the way audiences resonate with their “brand.”
Nine followed the finale with a trailer for 2012 including with Celebrity Apprentice already in the mix.
