NBC has found its new host of Celebrity Apprentice and it’s none other than the former Governor of California and iconic actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger!
“We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the Apprentice franchise,” NBC alternative programming chief 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 be back!”
“I have always been a huge fan of The Celebrity Apprentice and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement. “I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let’s get started!”
Celebrity Apprentice will return for the 2016-17 television season with Schwarzenegger as “CEO.”
