Shaynna Blaze wins Celebrity Apprentice 2021

Shaynna Blaze wins Nine series after raising $326,000 for her charity.

The Block‘s Shaynna Blaze has won the title of Nine’s Celebrity Apprentice 2021, after raising $326,000 in the final challenge.

She defeated comedian Ross Noble who raised $83,500.

The win carries a further $100,000 for her charity, Voice of Change, which she co-founded.

The final challenge saw both celebrities tasked with raising funds through sales, sponsorship and donations with a one-off event of their choice.

Shaynna Blaze hosted a red carpet auction event while Ross Noble staged a heist experience at Parramatta jail.

“I’m so elated to have been able to raise so much money for Voice of Change,” said Blaze. “The money raised will go such a long way to creating more awareness of the seriousness of family violence, and hopefully, acting as a voice of change.

“It’s been such a whirlwind experience throughout the series, and Ross was such a deserving, creative finalist. I’m glad we, and all the other Celebrities were able to do so much for our chosen charities.”

Blaze’s winnings of over $470,000 was the highest ever across 5 seasons of the show, and comes after boss Lord Alan Sugar apologised to her for an offensive slur recently on radio.

Ross Noble amassed over $100,000 for the Australian Red Cross disaster recovery and relief fund.

  1. The major problem with Celebrity Apprentice (both Australian and US versions) is that so much of the success is based on who raises the most for charity.

    This means that the more A group Celebrity friends you have, the more chance you will have of winning.

    A young actor whose only claim to fame is being on Home And Away for a season has little hope of winning.

    Shaynna by default was always going to be odds on favourite from day one, because she has been in the business long enough to know many rich people.

  2. I watched the earlier episodes and was really impressed with Shaynna, so very happy to see her win. I’m not sure I’d watch another series though. Calling people like Martha a ‘celebrity’ really grates on me. She should have gone very early on, but didn’t so I gave the show away about half way through.

    Loved Ross, glad he was runner up.

  3. Thank you for – yet again – ruining the result of a reality show for those who haven’t seen it by putting the winner’s name in the headline. Why not run the headline as ‘Apprentice winner revealed’ or somesuch? One of the constant failings of this site is headlines or photos blowing results or reveals for anyone watching on catch-up.

    1. Hi Pete, FYI the post ran 9 hours after it aired. The same info is in headlines on news.com.au. Daily Mail, Mediaweek, Yahoo, New Idea, Blackbox, etc. Putting generic titles (with what photo?) is also pretty hopeless for archive, search and SEO. By now I would have some 13 years of “MasterChef winner announced.” So the rule of thumb is unaired = spoiler, aired = news and those swimming against the tide should as an individual adjust. Thanks.

      1. We watch together as a family the following day, so last night I thought to myself “don’t go to tvtonight tomorrow”. My own fault for automatically visiting your site already. Or is it your fault for making such a good website that I didn’t even think twice before doing my daily visit?

      2. Well said David. PeteAU that is some nerve you’ve got firstly to type that out, but to then submit the comment!? Wow. How hard is it to avoid a website that delivers tv news. You ruined the result for yourself by leaving it so long to watch it and not avoiding spoilers in the meantime.

    2. PeteAU, Try to remember that this site is free, and the best TV site by a country mile, run by a passionate and dedicated man who does his best to keep us informed on all matters related to TV.
