The execs at NBC knew it wouldn’t be easy filling the shoes of billionaire businessman, Donald Trump on the hit show Celebrity Apprentice. With the savvy, real estate tycoon and presidential candidate no longer at the helm, the search was on to find a larger than life presence who could dominate the boardroom like The Donald.
Looks like they found the perfect guy for the job. Today, the network officially announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger will host the reality show when it returns for the 2016-17 season. What new approach the iconic action star will take as the man in charge is uncertain, but one thing fans of the show can expect to see is a lot of people being “Terminated!”
The Oak tests out “you’re fired,” but we think “you’re Terminated” has a better ring.
Wow. I'm blown away and honored by all your messages. I can't wait to bring my experience to the board room & raise millions for charity.
