Celebrity Apprentice Season Two – The Cast Announced

After weeks of rumours Celebrity Apprentice Season Two has now been announced, and one name they managed not to leak out was Patti Newton.

Patti Newton will be an interesting choice as she was very popular on her stint on Dancing With The Stars, however the rigours of this show are much harder and the ‘real’ Patti might slip out.

The Daily Telegraph have announced the cast as:

  • David Hasselhoff – does he need an introduction?;
  • Marion Grasby – former Masterchef contestant;
  • Jason Akermanis – AFL player;
  • Lauryn Eagle – Water skier and model;
  • Nathan Joliffe – Winner of season one of The Amazing Race Australia;
  • Fiona O’Loughlin – Comedian;
  • Tania Zaetta – faded starlet and Bollywood star;
  • Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson – Former Australia Idol judge, and former host of Can of Worms;
  • Ben Dark – reporter on Getaway;
  • Vince Sorrenti – comedian;
  • Charlotte Dawson – judge on Australia’s Next Top Model.

It is a good cast guaranteed to attract a diverse viewer. Dicko is always popular as is Marion Grasby. Charlotte Dawson will ensure she gets a lot of screen time, and chances are she will be looking hot as last week she sequestered herself up at a health farm.

Fiona O’Loughlin and Vince Sorrenti will provide some laughs. Hopefully Nathan Joliffe will show more personality then he did on The Amazing Race but then when your are suffering chronic jetlag it is probably hard to razzle.

Tania Zaetta may get cast as the villain, and I expect Ben Dark may want to keep his “dark side” contained on camera.

My only issue with The Hoff being on here, is will he actually take the challenges seriously.

The show start shooting this week.

What do you think of the cast?

Great bunch of celebs. Although this season lacks a somewhat more popular celeb(c grade) like Pauline Hanson in season 1.
Heaps of them are popular so they’ll gain great support and channel 9 will be happy with the extra viewers.

Really keen on seeing Marion back in the reality tv spotlight!!

At work the other day, I said I was pretty keen for excess baggage and in response most people were like “who watches channel 9 these days”.

Great line-up, absolutely fantastic. I was wrong about Charlotte! Although she would definitely be the villainess, no doubt about that. Vince or Patti will probably command most likes and make it to the final.

Perfect…not one iota of business nous… should make for fun viewing

How the heck did they get the Hoff? πŸ˜› Sounds like an interesting enough lineup to get me to watch an episode should I happen across it by chance. Not enough to actively look for it though.

This lineup sounds more interesting than the first season so hopefully it doesn’t end up being boring compared to Deni and crew. I didn’t watch CA1 but I might give CA2 a go.

6 Marepoppin { 01.16.12 at 3:16 pm }

Much better cast than S1

7 seepi { 01.16.12 at 3:38 pm }

Jason Akermanis is a nutcase with opinions, so that might be interesting.

8 Culinary Boner { 01.16.12 at 4:25 pm }

Hopefully Dicko is back on the piss. Will Vince be able to resist falling into his clichΓ©d ‘wog humour’ schtick, complete with idiotic Jerry Lewis style grin? Will Tania Z unleash her skanky charms at Mr Bouris? Or will Charlotte upstage her by playing footsy with The Boss under the boardroom table?
Hopefully that mantis-like, lantern-jawed, twin set and pearls mag-hag – can’t remember her name – is not one of Bouris’ sidekicks this season.

Love that Marion is on; but do we have to suffer Patti…….

10 Georgie { 01.16.12 at 8:43 pm }

Leop – someone in the Newton household has to bring home the bacon. All that rehab, botox and hair implants costs a lot of money.

11 smauge { 01.16.12 at 9:51 pm }

AKAAAAAHHH!!! Let’s hope they keep him on longer than they did the Wiz.

12 Sue { 01.16.12 at 10:14 pm }

I didn’t watch season 1 (besides some flicking in ad breaks) as they were dull. Now THIS is a season worth watching!!

13 PollyB { 01.16.12 at 10:49 pm }

Why the token fucking yank again? Surely we have enough z-graders in Oz to fill the ranks. Then again Zaetta is pretty much bottom of the barrel.

14 Culinary Boner { 01.17.12 at 9:38 am }

PollyB… a barrel that, I shamefully admit, I’d be only to happy to scrap the bottom of… *eyes go dreamy*… I’d be Shane Warne to her Liz Hurley. Oh, better get to tweezin’ me brows and peroxidin’ me teeth.

15 Shelsta78 { 01.17.12 at 11:50 am }

Zaetta will be funny I reckon – and for those who’ve watched Australia’s Next Top Model, The Contender and the other one she was on where it was just her and one of the top model contestants Jordan – you’ll know Charlotte is reality TV GOLD.

I just don’t understand why we need the Hoff – it’s so much better when it’s all Aussie celebs. Cameron Daddo is on his way back to Australia with a dodgy American accent couldn’t they have gotten him?

16 PollyB { 01.17.12 at 12:08 pm }

Oh CB, you never cease to amaze. However, I can understand re Zaetta. Ajay on the other hand….

17 Leop { 01.17.12 at 12:31 pm }

Bring Deni back to stir the pot

18 Celebrity Apprentice Australia – The First Challenge Is On | reality ravings { 01.17.12 at 12:44 pm }

[…] The Hoff will be there as will Dicko, Charlotte Dawson, Patti Newton, Marion Grasby, Vince Sorrenti, and Nathan Joliffe. The full cast list is in this blog post. […]

19 brain dead dave { 01.17.12 at 3:43 pm }

Quick, hide the booze and burgers ! Here come The Hoff, Dicko and Fiona O’ Loughlin.

20 Yvonne Towers { 01.17.12 at 3:59 pm }

Go Patti Newton, we love you! A showbiz veteran am sure she will give the young ones a run for their money!
