We’re expecting plenty of boardroom drama this season…
Donald Trump has revealed the latest crop of famous faces hoping to avoid a firing on this season’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice’. Trump had previously said that he'd "never had a cast that hated each other more than this cast,” which of course means drama, drama, drama. So who are the unlucky 16 stepping into the boardroom this season?
Who will Donald Trump be firing this season?
First up is reality TV veteran Kate Gosselin (remember her?), who first came to notoriety with the series ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’. Now divorced from Jon, Kate has also appeared on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’.
'Real Housewife of Beverly Hills' Brandi Glanville is another reality veteran who will be braving the boardroom. But she’ll have some working trying to beat fellow 'real housewife' Teresa Giudice who in 2012, made it all the way to episode 12 before she was fired. ‘The Deadliest Catch’s’ Northwestern captain Sig Hansen is also lined up to appear.
Former '90210' heartthrob Ian Ziering also joins the cast. Ian is now better known for his shark fighting skills thanks to his roles in Sharknado and follow up Sharknado 2: The Second One. But he’ll be in good company battling Trump as Sharknado co-star Vivica Fox will be joining him.
Another former 90s tv star taking part is Keshia Knight Pulliam. Keshia is best known as little Rudy Huxtable on ‘The Cosby Show'. Former ‘Falcon Crest’ actor turned reality star Lorenzo Lamas also joins the line-up along with comedian Gilbert Gottfried and actress and former Miss USA, Kenya Moore.
Hoping to put some of their people skills to good use will surely be talk show hosts Geraldo Rivera and Leeza Gibbons. While eldest Jonas Brother Kevin might have to use some of the people pleasing skills he learnt growing up to avoid a firing.
This season is also packed full of athletes with Major League Baseball outfielder Johnny Damon, former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens and gold medal-winning snowboarder Jamie Anderson all taking part. As well as another gold-medalist, gymnast Shawn Johnson who won ‘Dancing With the Stars’ in 2009.
Trump also revealed that former winner the late Joan Rivers will be appearing as a guest advisor in two episodes of the season. The businessman said he had considered re-editing her appearances following her untimely death, but decided instead to do something to honour her during the two shows. "I think she would have liked it that way," Trump said.

Original Celebrity Apprentice winner Piers Morgan will also come back as a guest advisor this season, as will other past winners Bret Michaels, John Rich, Arsenio Hall and Trace Adkins.
