Thankfully, the talkier half of Penn & Teller will have a chance at vindication as he joins the cast of the first-ever “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.” The latest installment of the popular reality show premieres in March, 2013.
Aside from future winner Penn Jillette (not that this blog is biased, much), other celebs will include: Trace Adkins, Stephen Baldwin, Gary Busey, Lil Jon, Dennis Rodman, Dee Snider, Marilu Henner, La Toya Jackson, Claudia Jordan, Omarosa, Lisa Rinna, Brande Roderick and Bret Michaels.
The season’s winner will receive $250,000 for their favorite charity.
During the last go-round for Jillette, when he was wrongfully “fired” prematurely, the Caesars Foundation, the charitable arm of Caesars Entertainment and parent company of the Rio, jumped in and made a $250,000 donation to Jillette’s chosen charity (Opportunity Village), anyway. That was in addition to a $40,000 donation Jillette had already made for winning an earlier challenge. Read more about some Vegas awesomeness.
Go get ‘em, Penn!
