Arnold Schwarzenegger Named new Host of Celebrity Apprentice
Donald Trump is out and Arnold Schwarzenegger is in!
The Terminator star has been named the new host of Celebrity Apprentice.
Executive producer Mark Burnett told the press, “After leaving the show to run for political office, Donald made it clear that he wanted ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ to be able to continue to raise millions of dollars annually for worthy causes, and now NBC and I have found an amazing new leader to do just that. Gov. Schwarzenegger will use his vast and highly successful business, political and media experience to drive this hit franchise to new heights.”
NBC’s president of alternative programming Paul Telegdy added, “We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the ‘Apprentice’ franchise. 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.”
