New comedy with Anne Heche! Premieres Thursday 8/7c. Preview now.
Donald Trump returns with "The Celebrity Apprentice" and an all-new celebrity lineup of candidates: Gary Busey, Jose Canseco, David Cassidy, Hope Dworacyk, Richard Hatch, LaToya Jackson, Star Jones, NeNe Leakes, Lil Jon, Marlee Matlin, Mark McGrath, Meat Loaf, John Rich, Lisa Rinna, Niki Taylor, and Dionne Warwick.
This is the fourth installment of "The Celebrity Apprentice" and the eleventh season of the series.
Contestants will not be vying for a job with Donald Trump however; instead the business-savvy celebrity contestants will be working towards a greater goal -- as they raise money for their various charities throughout the season. Not only will the final winner be crowned the 'Celebrity Apprentice,' but he or she will also have the honor of delivering a $250,000 bonus check to their designated charity.
All of the celebrities will be competing in business-driven tasks around New York City, using their fame along with their proven business acumen to win challenges, while ultimately raising money and awareness for their respective causes.
Just as in the regular "Apprentice," the celebrities will be subjected to long hours, grueling mental challenges, personality clashes, and intense scrutiny -- all without the help of their regular support system of agents, managers, and personal assistants.
Certain tasks encourage the contestants to reach out to their network of celebrity contacts for assistance or donations -- making for entertaining surprise visits by some of the world's biggest stars along the way.
All of the tasks will be judged by Trump and his advisers in the boardroom. Returning back to the boardroom are Trump's children (and colleagues) Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., alongside longtime Trump Organization employee and "Apprentice" advisor George Ross.
"The Apprentice" is produced by Mark Burnett Productions in association with Trump Productions LLC. Mark Burnett, Donald Trump, Eden Gaha and Page Feldman are executive producers. Nancy Gunn is the co- executive producer.
