Arnold Schwarzenegger ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Cast Revealed

Arnold Schwarzenegger is the new host of Celebrity Apprentice, and the cast for his very first season has been announced!

Naturally, this also includes the advisors for the season, as Arnold will be getting help on which contestants to eliminate each week. This season, Arnold will be getting help from Warren Buffett, LA Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, and nephew Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger. But who will be competing for the title of Celebrity Apprentice? Well, it’s a pretty diverse, interesting collection of celebrities both well-known and slightly obscure.

Among the most well-known cast members this season are Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, boxer Laila Ali, singer Carnie Wilson and Grammy winner Boy George. But they’re hardly the only notable names, as the cast also includes former Dancing With the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, SNL alum Jon Lovitz, and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy fashionista Carson Kressley, just to name a few. It should be a dramatic season, if nothing else, judging by the sheer number of lively personalities on this cast. But who else is in the cast this season? Check out the full cast list below:

Jessica Alba, actress/model/businesswoman

Warren Buffett, businessman/investor/philanthropist

All in all, it’s a pretty strong cast. If I had to make a prediction right now, I’d put my money on Laila Ali. She just seems like the type of dedicated person who’d excel in a competition like this. But hey, you never know who’s going to be the breakout star of a season. Hell, I don’t think anyone was predicting that Clay Aiken/Arsenio Hall beef that culminated in the duo being the final two on Celebrity Apprentice in 2012. Hopefully, the cast is able to deliver on its potential, because this could be an all-time great season, if for no other reason than for the clash of personalities involved.
