I’m guessing that Mark Cuban, Russell Simmons, Richard Branson, Joy Mangano, Magic Johnson, Kathy Ireland, Sammy Hagar, Martha Stewart, hat mogul Phoebe Price, every kid whose made a profit from a lemonade stand, the dude who ran the swap meet booth where my mom bought all my socks from and every other entrepreneur in the world said “FUCK NO” to replacing Donald Trump in Celebrity Apprentice. Because today, NBC dropped a WTF dingle when they announced that actor turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger is replacing turd mogul turned wannabe politician Donald Trump as the head ho of Celebrity Apprentice. “Hasta la vista, baby” is probably going to be the new, “You’re fired,” and I don’t like it. NBC pushed out this statement this morning:
“We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the ‘Apprentice’ franchise. 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!”
TMZ says that production will move from NYC to Los Angeles and their source (aka the NBC peacock) thinks that now that Ahunld is involved, they will be able to get bigger stars instead of has-beens and reality show messes. Remember that when the new cast of the Celebrity Apprentice is announced and the only name you recognize is a trick from Teen Mom.
Jabba the Trump already tweeted about this news and surprisingly he doesn’t seem mad about an immigrant taking over his job:
Congrats to my friend @Schwarzenegger who is doing next season’s Celebrity Apprentice. He'll be great & will raise lots of $ for charity.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 14, 2015
And the winner of Celebrity Apprentice will win the title and a bunch of money for their charity, and Arnold will also welcome them to his team by bareback boning a secret baby into their body on his kitchen counter.
