I don’t think anyone would have imagined that Arnold Schwarzenegger would replace Donald Trump as the host of NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice. However, I doubt many would have thought Trump would set his sights on the White House. Sometimes reality really is stranger than fiction.
Schwarzenegger, who will host the long-running reality show for the 2016-2017 season had this to say about his new appointment:
“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!”
This is a shrewd move for the star as it will raise his profile in the US, where his brand as an actor has diminished since he completed his two-term stint as Governor of California. Terminator Genisys under performed at the US box office (it’s grossed $89.7 million at the time of writing) however he remains as strong as ever on the global front, where the film has grossed an additional $350 million.
This is crazy news for sure – but it might just get Movies In Focus watching Celebrity Apprentice.
