“The Celebrity Apprentice” is just about ready to start filming for their upcoming “All-Stars” season to air a little bit later in the year, and while we do not know the official cast yet, there are some other details coming out that are nonetheless particularly notable: the return of a number of key champions from the show’s past to play a new (but still pretty exciting) role.
According to a new report from Entertainment Weekly, four of the show’s past five winners in Piers Morgan (arguably the best “Celebrity Apprentice” player of all time), Joan Rivers (the most polarizing winner thanks to her absences and her meltdown at Annie Duke), John Rich, and Arsenio Hall will all be present in the boardroom during the upcoming season to serve as advisers to Donald Trump for a task or two. Think of them as valuable sidekicks to the crew who will once again be present here, including Donald’s children Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka. As for some other celebrity guest members of the boardroom, that is still very much to be determined.
So where is the other remaining former champ in Bret Michaels? Given that he is not taking part in an advising role, it is actually possible that he could be entering the show as a contestant in order to prove something. Even though we personally felt like he had a better challenge record than his runner-up Holly Robinson Peete, he was accused at the time of getting the sympathy votes thanks to him suffering a near-fatal hemorrhage in between the end of filming and the show’s live finale.
What do you think about so many of the show’s past winners coming back?
