The Boss - Arnold Schwarzenegger

Donald Trump is no longer the show's host after he started running for President of the United States and spewing racially charged propoganda to gain favour with voters. Instead, action movie legend and former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger will be stepping in to put the celebrity candidates through their paces whilst raising millions for charity. But who'll be joining him to advise?

The Advisors

Warren Buffett

85-year-old Warren Buffett is a huge business magnate and holds the title of the most successful investor in the world. Forbes last year reported he had a net worth of $66.7 billion, making him the third richest man on the globe. When it comes to business and making the right decisions, it's fair to say this is a man whose opinion holds some ground.

Steve Ballmer

Between 2000 and 2014, Steve Ballmer was the chief executive officer of Microsoft and still sits as the own of the Los Angeles Clippers. He's also got a huge net worth, with $22.7 billion to his name according to Forbes. Ballmer is well known for his exuberant personality and has become the subject of many viral videos and memes across the internet. His knowledge and this charm should prove to be quite the entertainment when it comes to the new series.

Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks

One of the most famous supermodels on the globe, Tyra Banks has paved the way for countless models to make it in the world of fashion through America's Next Top Model, and just recently became a mother to new son York. Looking as fabulous today as she ever has, don't let stereotypes fool you. She doesn't suffer fools gladly and will happily tear into those whom she feels need a kick in the backside.

Jessica Alba

Though many know her as an A-list Hollywood actress, Jessica Alba has been involved in the business and charity world for over a decade now. She's participated in numerous projects including Clothes Off Our Back, Habitat for Humanity and Project HOME amongst others and so looks likely to drive the celebrity contestants to their limits so that those less fortunate can truly benefit.

Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger

Not to be confused with Arnie's son, Arnie's nephew Patrick is an entertainment attorney who hasn't really ventured personally into the media world. It'll be interesting to find out more about Patrick as the series transpires. Now, over to the contestants...

The Contestants

Laila Ali

Retired in sport, Laila is a former four-time boxing world champion and the daughter of Muhammad Ali. She's gone on to become an author, television host and expert when it comes to health, so expect her to put herself forward as Project Manager at the very best opportunity. Let's hope the other contestants don't get on the wrong side of her...

Brooke Burke-Charvet

As the CEO of, Brooke is clearly an innovative entrepreneur. Her past ventures into television include Dancing With The Stars, which she ended up winning - could she replicate that here?

Eric Dickerson

At 55, Eric is a former American college and professional football player who served as a running back in the NFL for 11 seasons during both the 80s and 90s. In 2007 Dickerson worked as a broadcaster for KCBS television in LA providing commentary for NFL pregame and postgame shows.

Boy George

Boy George

Though he's currently serving as a mentor on The Voice UK, Boy George has found time in his schedule to also take part in Celebrity Apprentice. He's had some incredible hits in the past and is known for not holding back if faced with confrontation, so he should at the very least be an extremely entertaining addition to the cast. Let's hope his business acumen is as good as his music making!

Matt Iseman

Beginning his career as a physician, Matt Iseman went on to become a hugely successful comedian, actor and television host. He's a big name in the entertainment business and despite being diagnosed in 2002 with rheumatoid arthritis, he's being treated successfully and doing well.

Carrie Keagan

Born in Buffalo, Carrie is a television personality, actress, writer and producer and former host of the Emmy Award-winning talk show Big Morning Buzz Live With Carrie Keagan.

Carson Kressley

Stylist to the stars, Carson was the fashion expert on the American series Queer Eye and can now be seen in his numerous guest judging appearances on RuPaul's Drag Race. He's an eccentric personality and won't hold back - entertainment guaranteed.

Lisa Leslie

Lisa is a former American professional women's basketball player who found success in the WNBA, becoming the MVP in the industry three times and going on to win four Olympic gold medals through her career. She's clearly got an incredible drive to succeed and hopefully that will translate in her charity work on screen.

Jon Lovitz

Saturday Night Live is one of America's biggest success stories when it comes to television, and Jon is part of the reason why, serving as a cast member from 1985 to 1990. He still works much to this day but business-wise we're not entirely sure just HOW he'll fare, it all remains to be seen...

Vince Neil

Vince Neil
Vince Neil

As the lead vocalist of heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, it's fair to assume Vince has had an exciting life full of drama and intrigue. Currently he's working on a new solo album - his fourth - but hopefully he's going onto the show for more than just free record promotion.

Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi

The breakout star of MTV's Jersey Shore, Snooki shot to fame after being punched by a man in the face in the first season of the reality series, before working her way into the hearts of the millions watching at home. She's built an empire off the back of the show and so it'll be nice to see her in an entirely new environment.

Kyle Richards

Actress and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle knows how to insert herself into the right places at the right time, and isn't afraid of a slice of drama.

Chael Sonnen

He's a retired American mixed martial artist who married Brittany Smith in 2013. Rumours surround him and his potential hiring to World Wrestling Entertainment, but there's been no official news on exactly what is next for him and his career.

Porsha Williams

Just like Kyle Richards, Porsha is a member of The Real Housewives family but is from the popular Atlanta franchise. She's been in physical bust-ups on her show so let's hope she leaves that all behind for some great charity work here.

Ricky Williams

Another retired NFL player, Ricky played running back for 12 seasons before one season in the Canadian Football League. Before being inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, he was picked up for representation in media in 2015 and so looks to be hoping to make a mark in entertainment as his next career step.

Carnie Wilson

Best known for her membership in pop music group Wilson Phillips, Carnie is also an American television host and regularly fills in for members of The Talk on CBS when they're unavailable.

Celebrity Apprentice comes to NBC later this year in the US.
