Rod Blagojevich cast on Celebrity Apprentice 3

Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich will be on The Celebrity Apprentice 3, according to The Chicago Tribune.

While a production spokesperson “said he could neither confirm nor deny that, because no contestants have yet been confirmed,” the show will film this fall, and the cast of “14 contestants won’t be announced until late January or early February.”

Earlier this summer, Blagojevich tried to get on NBC’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, but a judge said he couldn’t leave the country and his wife went instead. That was probably a win for him, since The Celebrity Apprentice is a far superior series, and it’s also a win for us, because it does a great job of exposing what the celebrities are really like.
