The amazing act of Benji Marshall with the Celebrity Apprentice cash prize was revealed

Benji Marshall was crowned the winner of the Celebrity Apprentice in the emotional finale – but his incredible move after that did not reach the broadcast.

Celebrity Apprentice winner 2022 Benji Marshall made an extraordinary announcement about the money of his award.

In an interview on KIIS FM Will and Woody on Wednesday afternoon’s show, it was revealed that the former NRL star telephoned radio hosts – and Apprentice castmates – in short after the grand finale was filmed in a scene that never reached the airwaves.

“Something the TV show didn’t show was that Benji called me after the finals – because I came back to help him with the last challenge – to thank me for getting so involved in the finals,” Woody Whitelaw explained.

“He pulled $ 30,000 out of the money he made, and puts $ 30,000 into Gotcha4Life.”

Gotcha4Life is an organization that aims to prevent suicide through programs and social connections.

Marshall also spread love among his friends on the show – another $ 30,000 went to the charity Samantha Jade Cancer Council Australia, $ 30,000 to Vince Colosimo’s Dementia Australia and $ 30,000 to Carers Australia’s Bronte Campbell.

During a radio interview, it turned out that Gotcha4Life was actually Marshall’s first charity to support him.

“Before the show started, Will and I locked Gotcha4Life as our charity. So all the money we collected went to Gotcha4Life. Benji was late in replying to an email about which charity he wanted to do, and his first choice was Gotcha4Life, ”Woody said.

“And Benji, you raised money for an amazing charity in Souths Cares, and I know it’s very close to your heart.” You raised a lot of money? ”

“$ 540,000,” Marshall laughed.

The emotional former sports star was declared the winner Celebrity Apprentice on Tuesday night after it was revealed he was the biggest fundraiser, beating runner-up Darren McMullen.

At their most recent events – where both contestants invested their last fundraising incentive for their chosen charities – Marshall earned a whopping $ 387,105 in the final challenge, compared to McMullen’s $ 172,617.

The former NRL star received an additional $ 100,000 in cash prize, which he promised for Souths Cares.

Closely linked to the South Sydney Rabbitohs, it supports young and marginalized youth and their families through education, training, health and employment.
