It’s 2013 — and you know what that means! NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” is only a couple of months away from its premiere in March. For the first time ever, Donald Trump is bringing back 13 players fired from past “Apprentice” contests, in addition to one winner, for an “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.”
Trump explained the reason behind this first for the show: “We wouldn’t have done the `All-Star’ concept unless we were able to get the right contestants back.”
So, what do you think, did Trump get the right contestants back? Here are the 14 who made the cut for the Celebrity Apprentice 2013 cast:
- Poison frontman Bret Michaels (2010 Celebrity Apprentice winner)
- country music star Trace Adkins
- actor Stephen Baldwin
- DJ artist and rap star Lil Jon
- NBA Hall-of-Famer Dennis Rodman
- Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider
- actress/author Marilu Henner
- singer La Toya Jackson
- actor Gary Busey —this choice alone makes me want to watch!
- magician/illusionist Penn Jillette
- TV personality/actress Claudia Jordan
- reality star Omarosa
- actress/Lisa Rinna
- Playboy Playmate of the Year Brande Roderick.
Trump has recently admitted that he has his favorites when it comes to who gets fired and who is saved in the boardroom. ”Absolutely, I do,” he replied. “Some people I like much more than others. I’m a human being, so I have my likes and my dislikes. But I don’t let that cloud my judgment. If I like somebody but somebody deserves to be fired, I’ll always fire them, as opposed to somebody that I don’t like if they don’t deserve it. I would lose total credibility if I did otherwise.”
