Cast includes Clint Black, Brian McKnight, Dennis Rodman, Annie Duke, Herschel Walker

NBC has announced the 16-member cast of The Celebrity Apprentice 2, some of whom were identified earlier. They are Clint Black, Andrew Dice Clay, Annie Duke, Tom Green, Natalie Gulbis, Scott Hamilton, Jesse James, Claudia Jordan, Khloe Kardashian, Brian McKnight, Joan Rivers, Melissa Rivers, Brande Roderick, Dennis Rodman, Herschel Walker, and Tionne Watkins.

As with most reality series with the word “celebrity” in the title, that definition is stretched severely for some cast members: Jordan, for example, is a Deal or No Deal Model. But most are surprisngly recognizable, although I suppose some are only known in smaller circles, like, say, poker player Annie Duke or golfer Natalie Gulbis. More than one has been on another reality show in the past.

NBC promises in its press release that, once the show debuts on March 1, they “will fight, tooth and nail, to win” and that “intensity will result in flare-ups that, Piers Morgan says, ‘make his legendary fights with Omarosa look like a tea party.'” In an early November interview, Joan Rivers gave away the ending, or at least identified one of the final two cast members.

The 16 celebrities will be split into teams of men versus women, which should make it easier for Donald Trump to make sexist comments.
