On the heels of a report that Top Model Tyra Banks will serve as an advisor on the next, Arnold Schwarzenegger-led edition of The Celebrity Apprentice, NBC has announced the complete Season 8 cast.
Joining Banks in the roles previously held by the liked of Ivanka Trump will be former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, actress and Honest Company co-founder Jessica Alba, entertainment attorney Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger and business magnate/philanthropist Warren Buffett.
The cast meanwhile includes retired pro boxer Laila Ali, former Dancing With the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, singer-songwriter Boy George, American Ninja Warrior host Matt Iseman, VH1 personality Carrie Keagan, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy‘s Carson Kressley, former WNBA MVP Lisa Leslie and SNL vet Jon Lovitz.
Rounding out those vying not to be terminated by Arnold are Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil, Jersey Shore‘s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Real Housewives Kyle Richards and Porsha Williams, mixed martial artist Chael Sonnen, retired NFL running backs Ricky Williams and Eric Dickerson, and Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson.
With Schwarzenegger governing the boardroom, Celeb Apprentice is relocating from New York City to Silicon Beach, where the tasks promise to be more focused on technology and innovation.
A premiere date has not been set.
I’d rather Alba be a contestant rather than an advisor.
She’s built a billion dollar empire. Thinks she qualifies for an advisor role.
Jessica Simpson also has a rather impressive business venture, but does anyone think she’s the brains behind it? Why so quick to think Alba is the real brains behind her business?
Why so quick to think she isn’t?
Who are some of these people ?
Makes Celebs on DWTS look like A-list lol
I know Lovitz, Boy George and……Um thats it.
Oh my goodness the casts get more random by the year. So excited for the beautiful ludicrousy of this show to return!
You lost me at Snooki.
HOW has she not been on before???
Good question. To busy being a mom maybe??
YES! I want the old “Drunken slut” Snooki! Not sure about the more settled, tamer version.
Warren Buffet?? How can I sign up? He will be a great person to learn from
Hahahahahahahahahaha. Most ridiculous cast ever. Celebrities???? Hahahahaha.
Is Queer Eye for the Straight Guy still on? Loved that show.
Ro unfortunately that show ended a while ago. They did have a reunion on Bravo last year or the year before.
Carson Kressley – YES! Warren Buffett – YES! The rest – marginal at best. Snooki? A celebrity? C’mon really? A real Housewife? Oh, and Vince Neil should be fun to watch. NOT. Oh well, more time for other, entertaining, shows.
If they are filming this fortnight, I wonder how Boy George will work around his Voice UK commitments.
I don’t know which is more embarrassing: this cast line-up, or the fact that I knew who everyone was except for one person.
Lol same here
I might have to watch just for Carson Kressley! I love him. He was the best thing on Dancing With the Stars a few years ago. My viewing of that show started and ended with him.
So instead of saying, “You’re fired!” will Arnold say, “You won’t be back!” LOL
Sad, but true!
