Donald Trump’s The Apprentice is more popular than ever with its change of format a few seasons ago into a Celebrity version that boosted ratings. With the new All Star version debuting on NBC past competitors now return to make even more money for their charities.
What started as The Apprentice where regular people competed for a chance to work for Trump has now morphed into a random group of stars that have their careers revitalized while raising money for a good cause on public television.
The cast this season consists of Team: Plan B with Trace Adkins, Stephen Baldwin, Gary Busey, Dee Snider, Marilu Henner, Penn Jilette and Lisa Rinna. Team: Power consists of Lil John, Bret Michaels, Claudia Jordan, La Toya Jackson, Dennis Rodman, Omarosa and Brande Roderick.
We talked to the mogul Trump himself along with Jackson entertainer La Toya and Poison front man Bret before the big debut.
Jerry Nunn: Hello, Everyone. Is this the most dramatic season yet of Apprentice?
Donald Trump: Well I’ll speak first. I think it’s certainly one of the most dramatic seasons. We have brought back, including Bret and La Toya, some of the people that everybody really likes because it’s an All Star season and amazing things happen. La Toya and Bret, go ahead.
La Toya Jackson: It’s very dramatic and very exciting. There is so much going on. You will see a lot of confrontations. It’s going to be a blast, you’ll love it. You will simply love it, everyone will.
Bret Michaels: I have found that as being there the first time it was something I really wanted to do. I had an absolutely great time and coming back obviously it is extremely dramatic and you’ll just have to watch because it will keep you riveted.
