Unfortunately, it seems Celebrity Apprentice contestant Bret Michaels is back in the hospital. We have some details on that as well as a preview of this Sunday’s Celebrity Apprentice season finale.
The finale is set to air live (with footage from the rest of the final task) but it seems one of the finalists may not be in attendance. According to Bret Michaels’ website, he suffered a stroke this week and was diagnosed with Patent Foramen Ovale (a hole in his heart). He’s being treated with outpatient care but there’s no word on whether or not he’ll be well enough to participate in the finale. According to his rep, “He is up, walking, talking, continuing his daily rehab and very happy to be alive but he has made it clear he is sick and tired of being in the hospital and is ready to rock again."
Whether or not he can make the finale, let’s just hope he pulls through this.
Now on to this preview, which I was literally in the middle of writing when I read the news of Bret’s latest medical problems. It’s down to Bret and Holly and Sunday night we’ll see the two contestants finish up the Snapple challenge and enter the boardroom for the last time to find out which of their charities will be receiving the grand prize. Holly seems to be the frontrunner here but I’m still holding out hope that Bret’s going to somehow manage to wow the Snapple people and Trump and win the whole thing.
Moderate spoiler warning (no major reveals ahead but still, these are clips from the finale).
These clips don’t really do much to boost my hopes for Bret but there’s a really sweet moment in one of the clips as the rock star gets a surprise visit from someone.
Celebrity Apprentice’s season finale will air on Sunday, May 23 on NBC (9-11 p.m. ET).
