Not only did John Rich make the final two on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice, but every other competitor in the final four picked John to be in the final two.

His only detractor was a former Celebrity Apprentice winner, British TV/tabloid personality Piers Morgan. Piers said John “benefited from being on a great team,” and Piers took a shot at country music.

“It's quite an annoying hat,” Piers said.

You may recall that Piers beat the other country star to make it to a Celebrity Apprentice final two, one Trace Adkins.

No matter: For the finals, John joined with former competitors rapper Lil' Jon, singer/TV host Mark McGrath and lawyer/former TV personality Star Jones, who admitted to having a little crush on the country star.

“I love Big Daddy Rich,” she cooed.

John and Marlee are doing campaigns for the launch of a new retro product for a soft drink company. John has to recreate the ’80s, and does so with help of Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, a buddy from an old CMT reality show.

The finale goes down next week.
