Schwarzenegger ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Eyes Jessica Alba, Boy George and More
It’s been some time since we learned NBC would replace the unendingly topical Donald Trump on Celebrity Apprentice with Arnold Schwarzenegger, and at last we know how the rest of the series will shake out. In addition to moving to California, Season 8 will feature guests the likes of Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, Warren Buffett, and so many more.
Following early word that former America’s Next Top Model host Banks would join Schwarzenegger as an advisor (via TVLine), the new Celebrity Apprentice will feature in the same capacity former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Jessica Alba, entertainment attorney Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger and business magnate Warren Buffett.
But that’s not all! The competing cast will include SNL alum Jon Lovitz, Laila Ali, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Boy George, American Ninja Warrior host Matt Iseman, VH1 alum Carrie Keagan, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy vet Carson Kressley, ex-WNBA player Lisa Leslie, Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil, the one and only Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Real Housewives stars Kyle Richards and Porsha Williams, mixed martial artist Chael Sonnen, former NFL running backs Ricky Williams and Eric Dickerson, as well as Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson.
No premiere has yet been confirmed but the report at least specifies that the new Celebrity Apprentice will move from Trump’s New York boardroom to Silicon Beach, California, in order to shift focus to technology and innovation. In the meantime, stay tuned for the latest on a new Celebrity Apprentice with Ah-nold.
