Former “Jersey Shore” star Snooki and Boy George are among the 16 stars set to compete on the upcoming series of “The Celebrity Apprentice”, with Arnold Schwarzenegger replacing Donald Trump as host of the show.
Other contestants are Boxer Laila Ali, actress Brooke Burke-Charvet, former sportsman Eric Dickerson, comedian Matt Iseman, television personality Carrie Keagan, ‘Queer Eye’ fashion expert Carson Kressley, former professional basketball player Lisa Leslie and actor Jon Lovitz.
Motley Crue singer Vince Neil, reality television star Kyle Richards, retired mixed martial artist Chael Sonnen, ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Porsha Williams, ex American football player Ricky Williams and Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson complete the contenders, reported Entertainment Weekly.
Schwarzenegger’s role on the programme was announced last year after Trump cut ties with network NBC.
“I have always been a huge fan of ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork,” the “Terminator” actor said in a statement at the time.
“I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let’s get started!”
He will be joined by actress and entrepreneur Jessica Alba, business magnate Warren Buffett, and Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer as his advisers, with his fourth adviser being “America’s Next Top Model” businesswoman Tyra Banks.
