This morning, NBC announced the cast of The Celebrity Apprentice 5, confirming what we’ve known since October, when the cast started filming challenges in New York City.
Here’s how NBC describes the 18 participants, who look like they may make Donald Trump’s typical and annoying superlatives (“the best cast we’ve ever had”) come true, because I’ll bet this group can bring the drama:
“The men are: late-night legend Arsenio Hall, pop star Clay Aiken, radio host Adam Carolla, the ‘Incredible Hulk’ Lou Ferrigno, magician/comedian Penn Jillette, rock star Dee Snider, actor George Takei, IndyCar legend Michael Andretti, and star of ‘American Chopper,’ Paul Teutul, Sr.
The women are: supermodel Cheryl Tiegs, pop star Debbie Gibson, actress and multi-Grammy winner Tia Carrere, author and reality star Victoria Gotti, comedienne Lisa Lampanelli, former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza, singer and actress Aubrey O’Day, actress and model Patricia Velasquez, and star of ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey,’ Teresa Giudice.”
The new season debuts earlier than usual, on Feb. 12.
