    I agree with Rattus' point upthread, that the subjective criteria allowed Trump to hand the win over to Joan. Why he wanted her to win, however, is curious. This is a man who measures everything by money, because that's the scorecard on whether someone's a winner or a loser. And he's got a thing about winners and losers.

    In every past season he's rewarded ruthlessness and manipulation and punished selflessness. Annie is probably the most Trump-like player to ever compete ... and she loses? It doesn't make sense.

    That said, as emotional and angry as Joan can get, I'm like the gay guy at his mother's funeral ... I think she'd be a total hoot as a friend.

    Hey, did anyone else notice the Trumpster completely ignored Dice. A simple acknowledgement of hello would have been common courtesy, no? Then again, maybe Dice prefered it that way, was content enough to get his appearance fee, and get the hell outa there.

    He didn't ignore Dice, he spoke to him first and Dice completely went off in left field and wouldn't shut up or even say anything that meant a darn thing- most likely Donald didn't want a repeat of that so didnt' bother with him again.

    I guess I ignored him then because I completely missed that, even though I was on the couch the whole time.

    My favourite part of the show was the revealing that Annie's team raised 462,000 for their charity. Even with the "winnings" from this farce of a ending... Joan's total for her charity was 400,000. Season totals for Joan were over 500,000... and for Annie? Over 700,000! That's a HECK of a lot of money for charity.

    Even if Annie lost for some reason I can't figure out, her charity won! I'm ecstatic for both charities, but I have a soft spot for Refugees International... especially because so many of these people lose homes and loved ones due to other country's conflicts that are beyond their control.

Rather, Annie politely allowed Maleficent Joan to hold her hand in what I personally believe was nothing more than attempt to make The Borg Queen Joan appear to be less of a harpy/shrew than she is.

    I have already contacted Tvland to let them know if they broadcast that new series with Joan after she called people Nazi, Hitler and White trash I will never watch their network again.

    Annie blamed the designer quitting on Joan, but she was given an explanaton off-camera, so we have no way of knowing if what Annie said was accurate or exaggerated. When Joan stated it was a lie in the boardroom, Trump didn't challenge her. It reaked of producer intervention on many levels ... but it woudlnt' exactly work for the flow of the show if they showed Annie making a bunch of panicked phone calls saying "Okay, the producers brought on a party planner, but arranged for them for the party planner to pull out in the eleventh hour to add drama and excitement to the show, so now I need your help".
