Sean Yazbeck, a 33-year-old recruitment consultant from London who lives in Miami Beach, Fla., is Donald Trump’s latest Apprentice. Trump made the announcement at the end of the NBC reality show’s live finale Monday night.
Saying “Lee, you’re fired,” Trump sent away Lee Bienstock, a 22-year-old business analyst from Brooklyn, N.Y. Bienstock’s undoing was a disorganized celebrity hockey tournament he’d hosted to raise money for New York City firefighters.
Yazbeck, meanwhile, had set up a Barenaked Ladies concert to benefit the World Wildlife Fund.
Although this season of The Apprentice – its fifth – took place in New York City, the finale aired live from the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles. The show’s sixth season will be filmed in L.A.
Asked what he’d learned from the show, Yazbeck told the Miami Herald, “Always go with your gut instinct. That’s the main thing I got from it.”
He also got a six-figure salary, a Pontiac G6 and a job in New York City with The Trump Organization.
