Diet Trop-A-Rocka™ Tea

Bret Michaels: “My new tea is taste bud tested and rocker approved. I chose to create a Diet Snapple because I am a lifelong type-1 diabetic and I know together we can find a cure for diabetes. And just like being a diabetic doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice having a rockin’ good time, Diet Snapple doesn’t sacrifice great taste. My Snapple-osophy is simple: awesome taste, the best ingredients and zero calories. And now The Best Stuff on Earth is better for me.”

  1. I've actually been following Celeb Apprentice this season, when I hadn't watched anything associated with The Donald for YEARS.

    There's just something inherently likable about Bret Michaels, I sincerely hope he wins it. Not because of his recent brush with death, but because I think he deserves it.

    Having said that, I think the other drink sounds better, LOL!


  2. I have been enjoying this Celebrity Apprentice as well. I have not watched the past ones but I think this one caught my attention because of the folks involved.
    I like both the teas.....I think Brett's name for his is kicking. And I love the label on Holly's.
    I think both of them are very personally involved with their charities and very passionate about them.

    I would be happy if either one wins....

    But I am thinking it will be Brett........because...he has taken the creativity, originality, flavor a step further.

    Good Luck to both of them and am looking forward to the final show. :-)

  3. I REALLY do not like "the Donald", but having said that, I must admit as a business owner myself, he has a business savvy like no other. This shows success is proof of his ingenuity and recruiting skills. Just look at the diversity of the players. A little luck as far as ratings fell in Donald's lap as well.

    This year due to the tragedy that happened to Brett Michael's, the Donald received the publicity jackpot. In the tons of interviews he gave to the media, he came across as the ultimate boss, who's only concern was for the welfare of Brett. This may or may not be true, but he was once again in the spotlight, promoting his show on every major talk show and news channel that he could possibly be on for free, and laughing all the way to the bank. This years finale is estimated to be largest viewed in the Apprentice's history..If not for Brett this would not be the case.

    I feel both Holly and Brett proved that they are both very intelligent,resourceful and competent business people. Each showed their passion for their charities, working very hard to achieve the set goals for that week.

    It is a hard call to make, but, Brett is the one that made this show fun to watch, and his unfortunate illness has made the Donald a much richer man.

    I think the right call is to make both Holly and Brett winners, and use some of profits Donald made on Brett's illness to award both charities the grand prize money.

    It is not only a good business decision, all three will come out winners.

  4. Most definitely Bret. He was out of his league here but still managed to rise to the top and he did not throw anyone under the bus to do so.

  5. Bret definitely. Besides being one of the nicest guys in the entertainment industry. Though I do agree maybe a tie between Holly & Brett could make all three winners as posted by Becky (above).
