So, the Celebrity Apprentice was rigged for Arsenio Hall from the first time they all arrived in New York City. Am I disappointed? Angry? Disillusioned?
Am I glad Clay did the show? Actually... yes. And here's why: my top ten reasons why I am glad Clay Aiken went on Celebrity Apprentice.
10. I got back in touch with Clay Aiken and the Clay fandom.
9. I got to write about that time my husband and I met Penn and Teller, and I'm glad so many people liked the story.
8. Everybody with a brain knows Clay really won the finale, and Adam
Carolla, first pick for Team Arsenio, is running around telling
everybody who hasn't figured it out for themselves. We don't have to
make up the conspiracy theories this time; they are being handed to us.
7. Clay Aiken reentered the national limelight and showed a whole new side to himself: extremely intelligent, creative, resourceful, and capable.
6. Clay Aiken got to debate about politics on Face the Nation.
5. Clay Aiken did a duet with Dee Snider of Twisted Sister and it was really pretty cool.
4. We got to hear Clay sing a couple of new songs on the show.
3.The Crystal Light Task was absolute magic from beginning to end.
2. Clay Aiken raised over $350,000 for the National Inclusion Project over the course of two tasks.
1. We had Clay Aiken on our television set for an entire spring. I never thought that would happen again. He didn't win... but he didn't go out the first week, either. It was really, really good to see him again.
And maybe one more:
Hey, I started a blog! It was really successful! Thanks so much to everybody for reading and enjoying! Glee is going to be pretty quiet for a bit - and I am absolutely furious with the show anyway - and of course, Celebrity Apprentice is over, but I will keep popping up with news about Clay and Chris Colfer as the opportunity arises, and I can finally give Korra some attention.
