Trump says Holly's beautiful, and Bret -- not one to change, even on his death bed -- says she's wearing a baby-making dress and now he understands all the kids. Trump asks Holly what her reaction was when she heard about Bret. She says that she and Bret became very close on the show, so there is no animosity like last year. She says she'd spoken to him after the appendectomy, and when she heard about the brain hemorrhage, she was devastated. She says they all were, and were calling each other. All the "celebrities" nod. Trump says Holly's tears are nice, because it's not like Joan and Annie Duke. He asks if maybe she's lost her front-runner status through something that's no fault of her own. She says that she saw her HollyRod logo on a Snapple bottle today, so she feels great about that, and she did lose some of her drive to win when she sees Bret on People magazine and on Oprah, lucky to be alive. Trump asks Bret if he feels like he'll win because of a sympathy vote. He says he was going to say -- until he saw Holly's dress and realized she was playing the hotness card -- that he'll take any vote he can get, whether it's for sympathy or otherwise. And, I think he should add, that he was a legitimate contender even before this happened. He had more wins than Holly (who had the most losses), and seemed to please the executives on this final task. I wish someone would point that out.
Trump asks them to both talk about their charities. Bret talks about the American Diabetes Association and that this is what he's going through and now his daughter is borderline, too. Holly talks about the HollyRod Foundation, which she emphasizes is not for her child, but is for other children who don't have the resources her family does. Trump reminds everyone that Holly raised $347,000 and some for her foundation, and that the whole cast raised "millions." I'm not sure if that's accurate, since he calls this the number one show all the time. He introduces Cyndi's song, and tells Holly it has to be for Bret if that's okay. Cyndi Lauper's obviously awesome, but this isn't my favorite song. Although George is clapping along in the front row, and Melania is even nodding her head a bit. Cyndi dances right up onto the boardroom table, and Trump tries not to look awkward as she rolls around. She hugs Holly and Bret when she's done, and announcer guy reminds us we'll find out who wins after the commercials.
