Celebrity Apprentice is Back with "All-Stars"

Donald Trump is at it again.  He and NBC are delivering yet another season of the Celebrity Apprentice and they're boasting (what Trump does best) that the cast is made up of "All-Stars" from past seasons.  At least the money raised is for charity.

This is the sixth installment of “The Celebrity Apprentice” and the 13th of “The Apprentice” series. The show airs Sundays (9-11 p.m. ET) beginning Sunday, March 3. Starting Sunday, March 31, the series will then air Sundays (10-11 p.m. ET). Trump will “hire” the All-Star winner in a live broadcast on Sunday, May 19.That person will also deliver a $250,000 bonus check to their designated charity.

The contestants are: Trace Adkins (country singer), Stephen Baldwin (actor), Gary Busey (actor), Marilu Henner (actress), La Toya Jackson, (singer) Penn Jillette, (magician), Lil Jon (rapper and entrepreneur), Claudia Jordan (reality TV person), Bret Michaels (rock star), Omarosa (reality TV person), Lisa Rinna (soap actress), Brande Roderick (model), Dennis Rodman (former pro basketball player) and Dee Snider (rock star).  (What does it say that I had to Google three of those people?)

This season, fourteen of your favorite business-savvy celebrity contestants return for a second chance to raise money and awareness for their charity of choice.  The last person standing will be chosen as the Celebrity Apprentice and have the honor of delivering a $250,000 bonus check to their designated charity.

Every week, the celebrity contestants will work in two teams, each under the guidance of a designated project manager, to compete in business-driven tasks around New York City, using their fame, along with their proven business acumen, to win challenges.  Contestants are subjected to long hours, grueling deadlines, intellectual challenges, personality clashes, and intense scrutiny under the careful watch of Donald Trump and his advisors. 

Certain challenges encourage contestants to reach out to their network of celebrity contacts for assistance or donations, leading to surprise visits by some of the world’s biggest stars and pop culture icons.  Each task will end in the boardroom, where contestants must account for their actions and be judged by Trump and his advisors.  Returning this season are Trump’s children and colleagues, Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric, as well as surprise guests along the way.
