Foxtel’s Arena is thrilled to announce that the new season of The Celebrity Apprentice has a lineup of talent sure to deliver the most exciting and invigorating season yet, premiering on Monday January 12 at 8.30pm.

Season seven of The Celebrity Apprentice brings 16 diverse celebrity contestants to compete in business-driven tasks around New York City. Contestants will endure challenging tasks that test their ability to work together while ultimately raising money and awareness for their respective causes.

The lineup of men joining the competition include two-time World Series champion Johnny Damon; actor and legendary comedian Gilbert Gottfried; Sig Hansen, the star of Deadliest Catch and Captain of the Northwestern; Grammy Award-nominated and multi-platinum musician Kevin Jonas; Golden Globe-nominated actor Lorenzo Lamas; NFL great Terrell Owens; award-winning journalist, author, and talk show host Geraldo Rivera; and television and movie actor Ian Ziering.

Not to be outdone by the men, this season’s women include Gold Medal Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson; movie star Vivica A. Fox; best-selling author and television icon Leeza Gibbons; star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and best-selling author Brandi Glanville; TV personality, author, and mother of eight, Kate Gosselin; world-class gymnast and gold medal Olympian Shawn Johnson; Kenya Moore, former Miss USA and star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta; and television icon Keshia Knight Pulliam.

In this season of The Celebrity Apprentice the contestants will be subject to long hours, grueling deadlines and intellectual challenges as they work to raise money for their respective charities. Personality clashes will likely ensue as each contestant is scrutinized and carefully watched by Donald Trump and his advisors — Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump.

Throughout 14 episodes each contestant has a chance to be named the “The Celebrity Apprentice” and have the honour of delivering a $250,000 bonus check to their designated charity.

The Celebrity Apprentice season seven will premiere on Monday January 12 at 8.30pm on Foxtel’s Arena.
