New Celebrity Apprentice: Six Famous Advisors Join Arnold in the Boardroom

Arnold Schwarzenegger will have some famous friends on hand to help him navigate the Celebrity Apprentice boardroom. (Will he say, “You’re terminated” instead of “You’re fired”?)

NBC’s New Celebrity Apprentice, which swaps in Ah-nuld for previous host Donald Trump (wonder what he’s doing now?), has added six boardroom advisors for the upcoming season, the network announced Thursday. And a few of them are already familiar to NBC watchers.

The new advisors include:

* Leeza Gibbons, the Emmy-winning Entertainment Tonight alum who actually won the most recent Apprentice season in February 2015.

* Bob Harper, trainer/host of NBC’s The Biggest Loser and exercise guru.

* Rocco DiSpirito, celebrity chef and cookbook author. (Remember his 2003-04 NBC reality show, The Restaurant? Well, we do.)

* Tracey Edmonds, co-host of Extra and film producer.

* Gemma Godfrey, British personal-finance expert.

* Justine Ezarik, YouTube star known as “iJustine.”

They join already-announced advisors like Warren Buffet, Tyra Banks and Jessica Alba, who will help Schwarzenegger choose from a new crop of celebrity contestants, including Boy George, Mötley Crüe rocker Vince Neil and Jersey Shore alum Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.

The New Celebrity Apprentice debuts Monday, Jan. 2 at 8/7c on NBC.

    I totally forgot the Biggest Loser even existed until Bob’s face popped up. Was that ever officially cancelled?

    Won’t watch ever again. Orange one has enough cash in his pocket and the ability to mess up our country now. done with it

      On the flip side, I would kinda like to see the new edition get the best ratings yet just to prove that it is more watchable without him. I do not believe that he will gain any income from the show. It is owned by Mark Burnett.

    • grazelled says:

      It looks like a completely retooled show with no ties to the Trump family for advisers or businesses in general. I think NBC and Burnett cut ties with Trump for this show although we’ll have to see. It will be interesting to see the changes.

      I think you need a spoonful of Lord Sugar.

    • Why dont you STFU and just watch this new version of the Classic show that our President-elect made famous, you dork!

      • Mary says:

        Probably because it was bad when he was on it and I don’t see Arnold doing any better, that is why I won’t be watching. I would hardly call it a classic.

    • Mike M says:

      What’s really scary is where this insane scenario appear to be heading… Movie Star —> Elected Political Office —> Star of The Apprentice. Vs Star of The Apprentice —> Elected Political Office —> … (please no PLEASE…let’s just not go there! LMAO).

    The New Celebrity Apprentice with Arnold Schwarzenegger is going to be even better than the Donald Trump one. Hope YOU’RE TERMINATED is a great catchphrase than YOU’RE FIRED and Leeza Gibbons, Bob Harper and others make great boardroom advisors.

  4. Ray says:

    Will this latest incarnation of The Celebrity Apprentice air in one or two-hour installments?

  5. MMD says:

    Not in this lifetime.

    I liked this show better when they had civilians, using so called celebs ruined it for me.
