'Celebrity Apprentice' finale: Who did Donald Trump hire?

Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall faced off in one final challenge Sunday night.

The duo, with the help of former "Celebrity Apprentice" competitors, were given the task of putting together a variety show and throwing a party to benefit their respective charities.

Arsenio Hall!

The 56-year-old comedian was elated, putting his head down on the table then raising his hand to the sky. He and Clay hugged, and the "American Idol" runner-up (and now "Celebrity Apprentice" runner-up) congratulated his competitor and friend.

And while Arsenio took home the prize, both men were winners: Arsenio's team raised $167,000 for the Magic Johnson Foundation, and Clay's team pulled in a whopping $301,500 for the National Inclusion Project. (Arsenio's charity was also awarded an additional $250,000 from Trump for winning "Celebrity Apprentice.")

"I've never been so torn," Trump said before announcing Arsenio as the winner. "This is a very, very tough decision. You're both amazing people. There is no loser tonight."

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
