An all-star edition of Celebrity Apprentice could be in the offing, the New York Post and several other outlets are reporting.
While some of the names being discussed for a return to the competition are "serious," such as past winners Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers, and Bret Michaels along with strong performers Meat Loaf and Sharon Osbourne, others are obviously being brought back for the zany/melt down potential factor. Those include Omarosa, Gary Busey, and Dennis Rodman.
My top choices of non-winners to come back for an all-star edition would include Lil Jon, Adam Carolla, Sharon Osbourne, Marlee Matlin, Mark McGrath, Meat Loaf, and Penn Jilette. I particularly would plead for the Ace Man (Carolla) to make a return due to his somewhat arbitrary ouster (though he's culpable only in the sense that he refused to take any of his teammates into the boardroom), but his refreshingly open comments about Trump and reality show editing shenanigans on his popular podcast, The Adam Carolla Show, could nix a potential invite.
Of all the contestants who have appeared on Celebrity Apprentice to date, I believe Piers Morgan, the winner of the first edition of the celebrity-themed Apprentice, to be the best of them all. The guy is a stone cold killer in the competitive sense, and it was impressive and a little bit unsettling at times in the way that he picked apart the competition and put the proverbial Howitzer to opponents in the boardroom. But I did appreciate the way in which he prosecuted his case to Donald Trump in the finale. Because Trump's decisions can be erratic and ill considered at times, there was no way that Morgan was going to let him off the hook.
That last bit said, I've been pretty satisfied with the Celebrity Apprentice winner each season overall, and there's no denying that the victory has proved to be a career boost for winners Morgan, Joan Rivers. Bret Michaels, John Rich, and Aresnio Hall.
A new season of Celebrity Apprentice is slated to air this fall on NBC.
