"I'm blown away," tweets Rich, who defeated Marlee Matlin, while Uncle Kracker sends his congratulations and some refuse to watch the show because of Donald Trump.

Donald Trump chose John Rich over fellow finalist Marlee Matlin as the winner of NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday night, and Twitter users took to the social networking site to share their thoughts.
