The New Celebrity Apprentice, Arnold Schwarzenegger


Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to take the reins. Literally.

The former governor and Terminator star is set to take over for Donald Trump as the host and master of firing of Celebrity Apprentice, after NBC severed tied with the Republican presidential candidate, and E! News has your exclusive first look at Schwarzenegger in action.

In the first poster for the eighth edition of the celeb rendition of the series (and the 15th season in the franchise), Schwarzenegger is seen on a horse, taking the reins, with NBC making it clear the time has come for The New Celebrity Apprentice.

We think new celeb contestant Jon Lovitz face perfectly captures our reaction to seeing this movie-esque shot for the first time. 

Schwarzenegger isn't the only new face joining the reality competition: Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, the founder and CCO of the Honest Company and Honest Beauty, Warren Buffett, described as an "investment guru" by NBC, and former Microsoft CEO and Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer will join Schwarzenegger's nephew, prominent entertainment attorney Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger, in dealing with the celebrity contestants.

And in case you missed the announcement, here's the full line-up of celebs heading to the boardroom:
