Arnold Schwarzenegger Replaces Donald Trump as Host of THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE
When The Celebrity Apprentice returns in 2016, you may be hear celebrities getting sent away with an "Hasta la vista, baby" instead of a "You're fired." NBC announced on Monday that Arnold Schwarzenegger will replace Donald Trump as the host of the reality show.
"We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the Apprentice franchise," NBC's Paul Telegdy said in a statement. "Arnold Schwarzenegger is the epitome of a global brand in entertainment and business, and his accomplishments in the political arena speak for themselves. It was Arnold's personal passion for the format that Mark Burnett and Donald Trump built over the last decade, as well as his fresh take on how to take it to new heights for today’s audiences, that made him the man to hire."
The Celebrity Apprentice will return for the 2016-17 TV season. With Arnold in charge, will we see members of the Schwarzenegger family on the show, just like Trump had his kids sitting in the boardroom and participating in challenges?
"I have always been a huge fan of The Celebrity Apprentice," Schwarzenegger said in a statement, "and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork. I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let’s get started!"
Both Schwarzenegger and Trump weighed in on The Celebrity Apprentice on Twitter.
Wow. I'm blown away and honored by all your tweets. I can't wait to bring my experience to the board room & raise millions for charity.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) September 14, 2015
Congrats to my friend @Schwarzenegger who is doing next season’s Celebrity Apprentice. He'll be great & will raise lots of $ for charity.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 14, 2015
To all my fans, sorry I couldn’t do The Apprentice any longer—but equal time (presidential run) prohibits me from doing so. Love!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 14, 2015
