The Apprentice Season 13 Episode 1 Premiere | Watch The Apprentice Season 13 Episode 1 Online Premiere as NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” is bringing back 13 players fired from past “Apprentice” contests, plus one notable winner, in the first-ever “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.”
“We wouldn’t have done the ‘All-Star’ concept unless we were able to get the right contestants back,” said Donald Trump, the host and boardroom boss who once again will be pronouncing each contestant’s fate.
The series, which starts shooting this new season on Monday for a March 2013 premiere, announced its slate of 14 contenders Friday morning.
They include: country music star Trace Adkins, actor Stephen Baldwin, actor Gary Busey, magician and illusionist Penn Jillette, DJ artist and rap star Lil Jon, NBA Hall-of-Famer Dennis Rodman, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, actress and author Marilu Henner, singer La Toya Jackson, TV personality and actress Claudia Jordan, reality star Omarosa, who competed in the first, pre-celebrity edition of “The Apprentice”, actress and author Lisa Rinna, Playboy Playmate of the Year Brande Roderick, plus Poison frontman Bret Michaels, who in 2010 emerged as the winner despite life-threatening ailments that included a brain hemorrhage and hospitalization for what doctors called a warning stroke.
If you ask the NY Post, the answer is “yes”. With five celebrity editions of “The Apprentice” completed, there certainly is a big enough pool of stars to choose from. According to the publication, Donald Trump wants an All-Star version for the show’s 13th season, scheduled to air in February 2013. Looks like Trump is following in the footsteps of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars“. The dancing competition is holding its first ever All-Star edition in the Fall.
You might be asking, why on earth would celebrities want a second go round of drama. This answer is career boost. The show’s most recent winner, Arsenio Hall, scored a new late night talk show after his appearance on the show. Other winners including Bret Michaels, Joan Rivers and Piers Morgan also scored major gigs after coming out on top in their respective seasons. So, who’s on The Donald’s wish list. Keep reading below to find out.
Some of the names have even been revealed by NY Post’s sources. Obviously winners such as Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers, John Rich, Bret Michaels and Arsenio Hall would definitely earn the offer. Also being eyed by Trump are Trace Adkins, Omarosa, Gene Simmons, Lennox Lewis, Meat Loaf, Jesse James, Gary Busey, Marlee Matlin, Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper, Marilu Henner and Dennis Rodman.
Donald Trump tasks 14 returning celebrities to create and sell meatballs in a fundraising competition for charity. One Project Manager takes an unorthodox approach to the task and risks mission failure, while the other team immediately deals with an internal power struggle. Fundraising on both teams sets a new record for a first task, but only one Project Manager will take it all. In the end, one returning All-Star will hear Trump’s feared words: “You’re fired!” Special guests include Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan, Paul Teutul Sr., Amy Grant, Gilbert Gottfried, Valerie Bertinelli and Nikki Taylor. Boardroom advisors: Ivanka Trump and Piers Morgan.
