When it was revealed last year that an immigrant had stolen Donald Trump’s job, speculation flew over what kind of changes Arnold Schwarzenegger might make to The Celebrity Apprentice. Would he force all the contestants to start working out more? Insist on weekly screenings of Jingle All The Way? Or perhaps he’ll simply put them all in a room and force them to download the game he’s hawking, like a smart capitalist would. Whatever the tactics, we now know the names of everyone he’ll be overseeing in the latest edition of the series: Variety reports the eighth season will feature Jon Lovitz, Carnie Wilson, Boy George, Vince Neil, and a bunch of other folks whose combined levels of name recognition suggests the word “celebrity” in the title should probably have an apostrophe and an “s” attached to it.
Arguably more interesting than the list of contestants are the people who have signed on as advisors to Schwarzenegger for the new season. Jessica Alba, Tyra Banks, Steve Ballmer, and Warren Buffet will be appearing on this season, meaning the program will now feature two drop-dead sexy minxes, and also businesspeople Jessica Alba and Tyra Banks. This year’s winner receives a $250,000 check for the charity of their choice; the show has cumulatively raised more than $15 million for various charities over the previous seasons. The full list of contestants is below, and if you can actually identify every person on this list, you may want to spend a little time away from Us Weekly. Not judging, just worried about you.
