Survivor’s Richard Hatch, Jose Canseco, Lil Jon will be on Celebrity Apprentice

More cast members for The Celebrity Apprentice 4 have been announced, and they include Survivor season one winner Richard Hatch and baseball player Jose Canseco.

Supermodel Niki Taylor and rapper Lil Jon are also on the cast, TMZ reports.

Like the previously revealed cast members, everyone has already done reality TV (except for Lil Jon, whose music has been used on So You Think You Can Dance). Niki Taylor hosted Bravo’s Make Me A Supermodel, at least until she was fired, and Jose Canseco appeared on The Surreal Life, for which he received $50,000.
