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.

Broadcasting live from NYC's Museum of Natural History, Donald Trump announced the newest winner of Celebrity Apprentice

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."

Are you glad Arsenio Hall won Celebrity Apprentice
