The fifth edition of NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” kicks off this weekend with a new cast of celebs putting their business know-how on display for charity. With 18 famous names competing, it will be the largest lineup for the Donald Trump reality TV job interview. Eighties pop star Debbie Gibson says what viewers see on TV hardly comes close to reality.
The cast also includes Arsenio Hall, Clay Aiken, Lou Ferrigno, George Takei, Victoria Gotti and Dee Snider. All celebrity contestants will compete with the goal of raising money and awareness for the charity of their choice. Past “Celebrity Apprentice” winners have included Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers, Bret Michaels and John Rich. The new season of “The Celebrity Apprentice” premieres on NBC Sunday, February 19th, starting at 9:00 pm ET.
