New team of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ rivals unveiled

- Associated Press - Friday, January 14, 2011

NEW YORK (AP) - Donald Trump is welcoming Gary Busey, Meat Loaf and La Toya Jackson among the rivals to be his latest "Celebrity Apprentice."

The contenders, who were announced by Trump on Friday, also include rock singer Mark McGrath, one-time teen idol David Cassidy and Richard Hatch, remembered as the fat, naked guy on the first season of "Survivor." Hatch has had lengthy legal wrangling with the Internal Revenue Service over unpaid taxes and could still be facing jail time.

Actress Marlee Matlin, singer Dionne Warwick and retired Major Leaguer Jose Canseco will also be among those competing.

Rounding out the 16 players are: TV personality Star Jones, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes, soap actress Lisa Rinna, supermodel Niki Taylor, rapper Lil Jon, country singer John Rich and model Hope Dworaczyk.

Each hopes to raise money for a favorite charity.

The new season premieres March 6 on NBC. Trump remains in the boardroom as host and judge.
