He shmoozed and charmed his way to the top. John Rich wins. I predicted this from the beginning. Firstly, Trump is a Republican. Of course he is going to love John Rich. And secondly, John Rich is Donald Trump Jr. He operates the exact same way. I think Marlee probably deserved it more. She's gone through a lot more on the show than John did. I mean, her team was tougher to deal with and none of the women got along well. You just can't beat the "Bro" atmosphere that Lil Jon, John, and Mark created. It is like Marlee was a gourmet meal and John was peanuts and beer. Peanuts and beer always win.
Marlee shouldn't feel too badly though. It isn't like she would have been in good company as the winner of this show. Plus, Donald Trump is a huge laughing stock right now.
