Celebrity Apprentice All Stars 2013 Cast Revealed
The show may not be premiering until 2013, but there’s a lot of excitement over the release of the cast list for the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice All Star edition. 14 former contenders, including one winner, will return to battle it out in the boardroom once again.
Of course an “All Star” cast doesn’t necessarily mean that the contestants will be the best of the best. What would The Apprentice be without a few misfits and crazies, after all? This lineup is an interesting mix of hard workers, serious contenders, and lunatics. Your 2013 Celebrity Apprentice All Stars are:
The Train Wrecks
- Gary Busey, actor
- LaToya Jackson, singer
- Omarosa, reality TV star
- Dennis Rodman, former NBA star
The Serious Contenders
- Trace Adkins, country music singer
- Stephen Baldwin, actor
- Penn Jillette, illusionist and magician
- Lil Jon, rap singer, DJ, and record producer
- Dee Snider, rock star and frontman for Twisted Sister
- Marilu Henner, actor and author
- Brande Roderick, Playboy model
- Claudia Jordan, actor and former Deal or No Deal model
- Lisa Rinna, actor
The Former Winner
- Bret Michaels, rock singer and frontman for Poison
The format of the game will remain the same, with winning Project Managers earning money for their chosen charities, and the overall winner receiving $250,000 for his or her charity. Filming for this season began this week, so if you’re in and around New York City keep your eye out for these celebs selling various food items on the street or getting stuck in traffic.
I think we can expect teams to be divided by gender to kick things off, since that’s how Donald Trump seems to enjoy starting things off. It’s a tired gimmick however. Wouldn’t it be more fun to have a quick individual challenge then have the two winners pick their teams, schoolyard-style? Still, we’ll have some great rivalries right off the bat, possibly including Stephen Baldwin and Trace Adkins. These two weren’t fans of one another the first time around. Any of the men who worked with Gary Busey last time will also have an axe to grind.
If you’re disappointed that only one previous winner is coming back, take heart. All of the others will be back to act as advisers this season. That list includes Piers Morgan, John Rich, Joan Rivers, and last season’s champ Arsenio Hall.
