Today, NBC and Donald Trump announced what they’re calling an all-star celebrity cast for the third season of “The Celebrity Apprentice” which premieres on Sunday, March 14 (9-11 p.m. ET/PT).
If you’re at all perplexed by the names on the list you aren’t alone. Here’s a closer look at the people vying for the crown.
Darryl Strawberry – Baseball player
Bret Michaels – Lead singer for the band Poison, stars in his own reality show called Rock of Love on VH1.
Goldberg – Pro wrestler
Michael Johnson – Track star
Rod Blagojevich – Former governor of Illinois who was involved in a recent scandal
Sinbad – Stand-up comic
Curtis Stone – Celebrity chef
Cyndi Lauper – One of only a few familiar faces, she’s the 80’s pop singing sensation
Sharon Osbourne – The most well known of the bunch, she’s Ozzie’s wife, America’s Got Talent judge and and all around great lady. (She’s going to win!)
Holly Robinson Peete – Actress known for 21 Jump Street.
Selita Ebanks – Victoria’s Secret model
Maria Kanellis – Pro wrestler
Carol Leifer – Stand-up comic
Summer Sanders – Olympic swimmer and former host of an old Nick game show for kids.
NBC says each celebrity contestant was handpicked for their balance of notoriety and business skills. Obviously, leaning more toward the later and not the former.
Who do you think will win?
