Contrary to its theme song, Celebrity Apprentice is not all about "money, money, money." Although Clay Aiken outdraws Arsenio Hall, $301,500 to $167,100, in the final fundraising challenge and arguably has the more entertaining variety show, Donald Trump somewhat surprisingly hires Hall, preferring his PSA ad instead.
