Hasta la vista, baby!
That classic line may not have been Arnold Schwarzenegger's new catchphrase on the New Celebrity Apprentice — but the season premiere revealed the action star had TWO signature firing lines to replace Donald Trump's "You're fired!"
The 69-year-old officially took over the boardroom from the President-elect on Monday night, uttering not one but TWO of his famous lines after kicking off the first contestant on the NBC reality show!

In the first challenge of the season, presented by guest mentor Tyra Banks, the contestants had to create a beauty experience to sell the America's Next Top Model mastermind's new line of cosmetics.
After the contestants were split into two teams, boys vs. girls (because Arnie's an old-fashioned guy like that), the actor narrowed down the chopping block to Snooki, Real Housewives of Atlanta Star Porsha Williams and TV host Carrie Keagan – who says guys can't sell makeup!?
So, which contestant was kicked off in the very first boardroom? In his first firing experience, the former Governor said:
"I really thought that Carrie, you participated the least in the whole thing. Maybe you've watched previous shows, and those that were quiet stayed on for a longer period of time, but that's not the way I handle things. Who is taking the most risk, is who it really comes down to. So therefore, Carrie, you are terminated."
While that sentence wasn't good news for the 36-year-old VH1 host, it was phenomenally satisfying for all of us who knew it would be too much of a missed opportunity for Arnie NOT to use a famous Terminator line in the show (even if it was one originated by Linda Hamilton).

But that's not all! To add insult to injury, the action star hurled a famous line from Predator at the kicked off contestant, adding:
"Now, get to the choppa."
Ha! We bet Trump's already jealous his successor gets TWO snappy catchphrases while he's stuck avoiding daily intelligence briefings.
Spared contestant Carson Kressley agreed with Schwarzenegger's decision to kick off Carrie in a blog for People, explaining:
"I think that was the right call from Arnold. I have to agree with him that the risk-takers and those who go above and beyond should be spared over those who play it safe."
