Early Friday morning, Donald Trump and NBC announced the cast of Celebrity Apprentice via Twitter from a special “reveal” event in Rockefeller Center in NYC. Yesterday, we shared the news that past winners John Rich, Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers and Arsenio Hall would be a part of the season in a non-competitive role, as advisers to Mr. Trump. So who will be competing for charity and a chance to be “hired” by the Donald?
Returning to Celebrity Apprentice are … Past champ Bret Michaels, country music star Trace Adkins, Penn Jilette, Lisa Rinna, Marilou Henner, Stephen Baldwin, ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman, LaToya Jackson, Gary Busey, Dee Snider, Playmate of the Year Brande Roderick, Lil John, Claudia Jordan, and former Apprentice villain Omarosa.
“They’re all very smart, and I think they learned a lot from their last go-around,” Trump told AP. “This time, some of them will change their game to fool their rivals – some for better, some for worse.” The winner, as usual, will collect $250,000 to donate to his or her chosen charity.
