NBC took the wraps off the lineup for “The Celebrity Apprentice,” which enters a new era after the network parted ways with host Donald Trump. NBC announced last fall that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be replacing Trump as host.
EW.com reports that the celebrity roster for season 8 includes “Jersey Shore” veteran Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, singer Boy George, Wilson Phillips member Carnie Wilson, and “Saturday Night Live” alum Jon Lovitz. The season premiere date has not been announced.
EW adds: “Boxing champ Laila Ali, actress Brooke Burke-Charvet, former pro football player Eric Dickerson, ‘American Ninja Warrior’ host Matt Iseman, former ‘Big Morning Buzz Live’ host Carrie Keagan, ‘Queer Eye’s’ Carson Kressley, Olympic gold medalist Lisa Leslie, Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil, ‘Real Housewives’ stars Kyle Richards and Porsha Williams, mixed martial artist Chael Sonnen, and Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams will also be competing for the grand prize.”
Schwarzenegger’s team of decision makers will include Warren Buffett, Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, Steve Ballmer and the host’s nephew Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger.
