NBC has confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger is replacing Donald Trump as the new host of “Celebrity Apprentice.” In June 2015 NBC allegedly cut ties with Donald Trump after he made what some understood to be racist comments against minorities. The producers of “Celebrity Apprentice” made it very clear that they were searching for a new replacement, however they wouldn’t confirm nor deny any casting rumors until now. Sadly, George Clooney’s fame hungry wife Amal Alamuddin seems to have been over looked – bummer.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, former California Governor, and more significantly for many, 7 times Mr Olympia winner, will make his “Celebrity Apprentice” debut during the 2016-2017 season. The network opted to skip a season while they were searching for Donald Trump’s replacement. Arnold released this official statement confirming that he had joined the cast and couldn’t wait to begin his new gig, “I have always been a huge fan of The Celebrity Apprentice and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork. I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let’s get started!”
NBC’s executive producer of the hit show also made a statement regarding Arnold Schwarzenegger coming aboard and he commented, “Gov. Schwarzenegger will use his vast and highly successful business, political and media experience to drive this hit franchise to new heights.” So far Donald Trump hasn’t made any crazy outbursts regarding his replacement Arnold Schwarzenegger, but hey the day is still young. Then again, Arnold has quite a few fans – slamming “The Terminator” might not be good for his campaign, then again neither has anything else that Trump has said.
