Out pop star Clay Aiken was narrowly bested by former talk show host Arsenio Hall on Sunday night's Celebrity Apprentice finale.

Apprentice host Donald Trump said he was torn, but ultimately hired Hall and fired Aiken. Hall won more money for his charity over the course of the season, though Aiken took home more in the final challenge, which required the contestants to create a celebrity variety show and public service announcement.

Although he came up just a bit short, Aiken won $361,000 for the children's charity known as the National Inclusion Project. Read more here.
