Joan Rivers, who won her season of Celebrity Apprentice and popped up on All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, will appear in two episodes of the new season. She filmed the series months before her sudden passing. Piers Morgan, the winner of the first season of Celebrity Apprentice, will also return as an adviser. Previous winners also include Bret Michaels, John Rich, Arsenio Hall and Trace Adkins.

"This season of The Celebrity Apprentice is on point to be the best yet," Trump said in a statement. "With 16 extraordinary contestants bringing their energy to the boardroom, it is sure to be a hit, as always."
