Is Jay-Z replacing host Donald Trump on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice? Since Donald Trump announced his bid for Presidency, it’s difficult to keep track of the lengthy list of people he has offended. It’s safe to say that Donald Trump is OUT at NBC, and will not be hosting the next season of Celebrity Apprentice – which means the network is searching for a new host to replace the controversial businessman-turned wanna-be politician. Rumor has it that Jay-Z is at the top of the list of potential replacements!
NBC is reportedly looking for a minority to take on the role of Celebrity Apprentice host, and they have to have a reputation as a strong businessman, and of course being a millionaire is also important. Sure, there are tons of celebs that fit that criteria – but rumor has it that NBC has their eyes on rapper Jay-Z. Then again, after the Tidal disaster, we’re not really sure that Jay-Z’s head for business is up to par – but he and his wife Beyonce really need to do something to win back their fans after the last few months. Bey’s diet scam isn’t exactly resonating well with the people either.
Beyonce and Jay-Z have always made it very clear that they are “above” reality television. But, technically, it’s for charity so maybe there is some sort of loophole that will allow them to come down from their high-horses and participate in Celebrity Apprentice. Is anyone else having flashbacks to Fifty Cent’s horrible reality TV show where he had people competing to be his intern?
Celebrity Apprentice’s ratings have been slipping over the course of the last few seasons, and Jay-Z might be exactly what NBC needs to turn that around. If NBC lands the rapper as Donald Trump’s replacement will you tune in to the next season? What kind of absurd things do you think Donald Trump will have to say about his replacement?
