Carson Kressley: Arnold Schwarzenegger is the ‘Perfect Replacement’ For Donald Trump on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

The Celebrity Apprentice will have a big piece of its success missing when Season 8 premieres: Donald Trump. Clearly, the road to the GOP nomination is a higher priority for the brazen billionaire, but there is a star large enough, literally, to fill any shoes or seats in the boardroom, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Before the next installment of the franchise begins filming, candidate Carson Kressley stopped by Scott Shannon in the Morning to discuss the former Governator in his latest role.

“He’s really a fantastic business man… he made his first million before he did any movies,” says the former Fab Five member from Queer Eye. “He’s just a smart, hard-working, very successful, self-made man. He’s kind of the perfect replacement.”

Schwarzenegger’s five boardroom members for his debut season were announced on January 28, pairing him with Warren Buffett, Tyra Banks, Steve Ballmer, Jessica Alba, and his son Patrick Schwarzenegger. The list of candidates joining Kressley was revealed on the same day:

  • Laila Ali
  • Brooke Burke-Charvet
  • Eric Dickerson
  • Boy George
  • Matt Iseman
  • Carrie Keagan
  • Carson Kressley
  • Lisa Leslie
  • Jon Lovitz
  • Vince Neil
  • Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
  • Kyle Richards
  • Chael Sonnen
  • Porsha Williams
  • Ricky Williams
  • Carnie Wilson
