Schwarzenegger Debuts in New Celebrity Apprentice on January 2, 2017
Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his debut as host of The New Celebrity Apprentice on Monday, January 2nd, and as you can see in the above preview, for Arnold, getting down to business means completely destroying your enemies and making sure everyone else gets fired before you. The show is now set in Los Angeles with a new cast of advisers that includes Berkshire Hathaway bigwig Warren Buffett, supermodel Tyra Banks and actress Jessica Alba.

According to the NY Daily News, Schwarzenegger has demanded that everyone participating in the show call him “Governor.” His first name or Mr. Schwarzenegger won’t do, and just forget about calling “The Governator.” There has been a lot of joking around about what his catchphrase will be. Hopefully, it will be something new, to set his stint on the show apart from his famous movie quotes. But we’ll see? That “crush your enemies” line was in Conan the Barbarian.
