‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ finale: Clay Aiken, Arsenio Hall visit ‘Today’

What did Arsenio have to say?

Before the season finale of “The Celebrity Apprentice” airs on Sunday, both Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall took to “The Today Show” on Thursday morning for what really was a pretty entertaining interview.

Basically, what makes this final two particularly interesting is that Clay and Arsenio, despite being rivals on the show, actually get along really well. The two first met in the corner of a cocktail reception before filming, mostly because neither one of them is particularly social and handles those situations well. From there, they both worked together for several weeks before being separated as one of the many change-ups that Donald Trump also does on the show.

Arsenio admitted that ultimately, one of the biggest tests of his friendship was worrying that he would go back to Los Angeles after the show and see Clay on TV saying a bunch of horrible stuff about him — however, that didn’t happen, as most of the feuds involving Clay were mostly geared towards either Dayana Mendoza or Penn Jillette (though he seems to actually respect both of them in real life).

Based on what you have seen from these two during the season, who are you favoring at this very moment to win?
