Against all odds, it was Bret Michaels� sheer determination that allowed him to make it to Sunday�s live finale of The Celebrity Apprentice. The rocker�s amazing return proved that he�s as �RockSolid� as the Apprentice team he competed on.
Turns out the trip � which included a quick detour in Nashville � proved to be well worth it after Donald Trump declared Michaels, 47, the third season winner.
Prior to the live show, Holly Robinson Peete � who cried when she saw Michaels � showed support for him on her Twitter page. �I know the whole country is pulling for Bret,� she Tweeted. �In many ways I am too!�
Just days after he was named a finalist on the show, the musician � who was still recovering from an emergency appendectomy and life-threatening brain hemorrhage � was readmitted to the hospital after suffering a warning stroke.
Although Michaels � who is undergoing twice-daily rehabilitation treatments � walked with a slight limp at the finale, he appeared otherwise healthy and ready to take on Robinson Peete.
