Schwarzenegger spoke Monday about joining the show:
"I have always been a huge fan of ‘The Celebrity Apprentice' and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork. I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let's get started!"
Let's get started, indeed.
Executive producer Mark Burnett, who said the show will return to TV screens sometime in the 2016-2017 season, said of the decision to hire the former Governor:
"After leaving the show to run for political office, Donald [Trump] made it clear that he wanted ‘The Celebrity Apprentice' to be able to continue to raise millions of dollars annually for worthy causes, and now NBC and I have found an amazing new leader to do just that. Gov. Schwarzenegger will use his vast and highly successful business, political and media experience to drive this hit franchise to new heights."
What do U guys think of this decision??
