Donald Trump may be bankrupt, but his reign of terror television soldiers on in the latest "The Celebrity Apprentice."
“The Celebrity Apprentice” starts tonight March 1 on NBC at 9 p.m. eastern time.
Scraping the bottom of the D-Listed barrel, Trump will festoon season 2 with the always entertaining Dennis Rodman, comic Andrew Dice Clay, mother/daughter tag team Joan and Melissa Rivers, TV comic Tom Green; reality "star" and sister of famous sex tape star and Calabasas retailer Khloe Kardashian along with poker champion Annie Duke, singer Brian McKnight, Playboy playmate Brande Roderick, country start Clink Black,“Deal or No Deal” model Claudia Jordan, Heinsman Trophy winner Hershel Walker, TV star Jesse James, golf champion Natalie Gulbis, figure skating champion Scott Hamilton and R&B group TLC’s Tionne Watkins.
Unlike “The Apprentice” which features ordinary folks looking for a chance to work for The Donald, “Celebrity Apprentice” takes that premise and applies to a group of gargantuan egos.
The contestants compete to raise money for their charity of choice.
As the show goes, weekly the groups will be given tasks to complete that will ultimately land one group in the boardroom by the end of the hour-long show. The women name their group Athena, after the goddess of war and wisdom, while the men chose Kotu, for kings of the universe.
It’s in the boardroom that a failed competitor will hear Trump's iconic catchphrase, “You’re fired.”
Scott Hamilton, who has chosen to raise money for the Cleveland Clinic, says his strategy is to win every task, the Associated Press reports. “My biggest fear was that I'd somehow get caught up in the game and misrepresent myself, my faith and my family,” Hamilton said, according to the AP.
Canadian-born Tom Green tells Jam Showbiz on Canoe.ca. “I'm there to win for Canada. That is the first, primary goal,” Green said.
This season’s premiere will feature the 16 contestants divided by gender into two groups.
The first task is the making and distributing of cupcakes and selling them on the streets of New York City.
Trump is joined on the show by his children, Ivanka and Donald Jr., and Trump associate George Ross, who are key components in helping him to decide who stays and who goes.
