WASILLA, Alaska — Thursday night the NBC reality show “The Apprentice” concluded with a former Service High Student being picked as Donald Trump's new hire. Thirty-year-old Brandy Kuentzel is the new apprentice after edging out runner-up Clint Robertson.
We shared that special moment with her family in Wasilla Thursday night when they learned of the news at the same time as everyone else – on t.v.
For fans it was the long-awaited finale, but for the Kuentzels, thousands of miles away from the Big Apple, it was much more.
Kuentzel graduated valedictorian from Service High School.
“She has both beauty and brains. Where she got it, I’m not sure, but she has it,” said Marvin Kuentzel, her grandfather.
