We guess those reports that NBC was looking to hire a minority host weren't necessarily true after all…
Donald Trump has had one of the most controversial 2015s in Hollywood ever since his racist campaign speech and subsequent firing from Celebrity Apprentice made him both public enemy No. 1 and, somehow, ahead in the polls.
Well, after he was forced out of Miss USA, we were hearing that the Peacock peeps were looking to replace the Republican Presidential hopeful with a Latino host, with George Lopez as a name frequently coming up.

However, it's been a little over two months since Donald got the boot, and we still don't know who will be the face of the Apprentice's 15th Season.
With that said, a number of high-profile businessmen like Magic Johnson, Mark Cuban, and Virgin Group's Richard Branson have all been approached to fill the spot!
The only catch…
They've all turned the Reality TV gig down!

Apparently, Mark and Richard's people claim they are just too busy to film, especially since the Dallas Mavericks owner already has a starring role on ABC's Shark Tank — and it just doesn't feel like the right fit for the NBA star.
Maybe if NBC wasn't so stubborn about hiring a guy, they'd be able to find a kick-ass female who could get the job done with a ton more charisma than Trump ever could!
*couch* Ivanka Trump *cough*
Who would U like to see take over??
