Trump has revealed the cast for this seasons Celebrity Apprentice.
Give it to him… at least in this scenario, the guy knows how to pick ’em. DWTS should take note… THIS is a Celebrity format that works because of the solid, D-List celebrities involved. Quality D-List.
Here’s the List:
- Clay Aiken (runner up on American Idol, my grandma loves him…)
- George Takei (Star Trek…finally one upping his nemisis Will Shatner)
- Penn Jillette (yes, the mute one)
- Paul Teutul, Sr. (“American Chopper” dad)
- comedian Arsenio Hall (I had to Google him, but you’ll know his face when you see him)
- Adam Carolla (comedian and radio personality making the reality show rounds…)
- race car driver Michael Andretti
- Dee Snider (rocker in Twisted Sister)
- Lou Ferigno (The original Hulk and ex-pro body builder)
I love the variety here – Clay Aiken and Adam Corolla? George Takei and Twisted Sister? It’s genius.
- Victoria Gotti (Former Mob Boss widow…and she’s famous?!)
- Daydana Mendoza (Miss Venezuela among many other awards for her beauty)
- Teresa Giudice (The fiesty Housewife… on one of the housewife shows)
- singer Debbie Gibson (80’s pop princess making her ‘comeback’)
- Aubrey O’Day (I can never really explain why this girl is considered famous… she just, is.)
- Tia Carrere (ANother one making the reality rounds, also due for a comeback)
- model Cheryl Tiegs (yawn…)
- Patricia Velasquez (another model for Trump to ogle)
- and comedian Lisa Lampanelli (a comic queen)
The ladies list may not be quite as exciting as the Men’s list… but I think we can all agree that the crown jewel in this equation is Lisa Lampanelli. Comedians kill it on this show… becuase they are quick on their feet, not afraid to act like an idiot infront of big crowds, and are people pleasers. She will lambaste the quiet, demure models and be a strong team member and leader. That’s my prediction. Resistance will come from The Housewife, perhaps the Mob Boss widow… but the weak will fall very quickly.
I think it’s a great cast, one too many models on the girls side… but Trump loves the eye candy.
Is this the best overall cast ever on a Celebrity Reality Show? I’m just throwing it out there…
