Okay, sure, maybe All-Star might be a bit of a stretch, but we can’t all be RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars (Go Pandora Boxx!) Anyway, Donald Trump has decided to do an all-star season of Celebrity Apprentice, where he’ll be bringing back the most popular contestants of seasons passed for a second chance at winning … something. Remember when this show used to be about giving people jobs? Now it’s just about making celebrities sell sandwiches in between screaming matches. Anyway, the cast list from Entertainment Weekly …
— country music star Trace Adkins.
— actor Stephen Baldwin.
— actor Gary Busey.
— magician and illusionist Penn Jillette.
— DJ artist and rap star Lil Jon.
— NBA Hall-of-Famer Dennis Rodman.
— Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider.
— actress and author Marilu Henner.
— singer La Toya Jackson.
— TV personality and actress Claudia Jordan.
— reality star Omarosa, who competed in the first, pre-celebrity edition of The Apprentice.
— actress and author Lisa Rinna.
— Playboy Playmate of the Year Brande Roderick.
— plus Poison frontman Bret Michaels, who in 2010 emerged as the winner despite life-threatening ailments that included a brain hemorrhage and hospitalization for what doctors called a warning stroke.
Personally? I know Bret Michaels is kind of the safe bet here, but I’d definitely keep my eye on either Omarosa or Lil Jon. Yes, Lil Jon. His songs may be like cheese graters on your auditory canal, but the guy actually did really well a couple seasons ago. And Omarosa is Omarosa, so how could she not kick ass in this competition?
