It was obvious Joan was very committed to her charity. I question whether the lying poker player even heard of her charity before the show began. Joan has a huge heart. All Annie did was call her friends and beg them for money.
What the hell ?? How is Annie a "lying poker player" ?? When did she lie ? How about telling the truth and calling her the "smart and clever poker player" ?
By the way, there's NO WAY anyone can make it to the end of a contest like Celebrity Apprentice simply by "begging friends for money". You clearly can't face the fact that Annie had more talent and skill than any other contestant. She out-performed everyone in the cooking and advertising tasks.
Also, raising money was an important part of the contest. Since Annie raised the most money, she was the true winner.
You need to learn to face reality...

If it is about charity - it is about fund raising. To say that it should count for 20 per cent is like saying the score in a football game should count as 20 per cent on who won... Piers did not support Joan as somebody previously stated, he said based on the stated criteria - Joan was the winner. He didn't agree or support just said that was the rule...Further how did Joan just happen to show up for the final? Who called her and what was said? Was somebody promised if they came back that they might win? And yes I also noticed that Joan's group did not go out and sell their tickets on the street at face value... Annie was robbed - the fix was in, the deck was stacked. PS why didn't Trump call the decorating firm to see what did happen instead of allowing Joan to scream at Annie that she was a liar?

I am a loser and have no life or job so I look for things like this just to make people more mad. I feel your anger at Annie not winning and really I think she should have won also. But I get a kick about going on boards like this and making people mad.
