Celebrity Apprentice – Rumours Of Cast Starting To Emerge


Celebrity Apprentice will be having its third season on NINE this year and rumours are now circulating about who will be on the show as is always the way there are some good ones and not so good ones.

News.com.au is reporting that Stephanie Rice, Kris Smith, Amanda Vanstone and Dawn Fraser are just a few names being bandied about.

If Stephanie Rice is on the show she is guaranteed to get a positive edit as she has just been signed by NINE to be the Health and Lifestyle reporter on the TODAY show. Not too sure about Dawn Fraser she was on Dancing With The Stars and showed a distinct lack of personality. However she did own a pub so she may have some business know how.

However is Celebrity Apprentice really about business knowledge? A lot of the challenges are about how much money you can bring through corporates and friends.

The news.com.au article states:

An Olympic swimmer, a male model, a former pollie and a national sporting icon are just four personalities emerging as potentials for this season.

The Nine Network reality TV series pits known names against each other – the word “celebrity” is a tad misused in some cases – as they fight tooth, nail, hammer and thong to impress the show’s “boss” Mark Bouris.

Mr Bouris has Stephanie Rice, who has just signed a contract with the network, male model and Myer man Kris Smith, former Howard government minister Amanda Vanstone and Aussie flag fan Dawn Fraser in his Apprentice sights for 2013.

Other names being considered are Big Brother favourite Layla Subritzky as well as fellow BB housemate Ben, along with former child star Nikki Webster, ex-footy player Dermott Brereton, comedian Peter Berner and right wing publicist Prue Macsween.

Interesting that Prue and Kris Smith were both recently seen on Celebrity Come Dine With Me Australia. Prue was quite lascivious so if the rumours are true Kris and Dermott Brereton better look out. At the moment it looks like the cast is a bit light on for male contestants.

Celebrity Apprentice is a show that can re-ignite a career or kill it. Julia Morris is now acting on House Husbands, however for Deni Hines and Tania Zaetta their career was not re-invigorated by their turn on the show. Deni because she was soo aggressive and Tania because she was a ditz.

The article reports the show starts filming next week. Mark Bouris will return as host. It is unclear whether his son Dane will join him. The other judge who will probably come back is Deborah Thomas.

What do you think of the rumoured names? Anyone you would like to see on the show?

Celebrity apprentice Au will never be good until Bouris gets a bit tougher with the celebs. He’s too kind and never gets to the weakest link. Just asks them who should go and why should I keep you. He needs to ask hard questions about why the task was lost. Get them to turn on each other

Isabel; another term for child-centred education could be self-centred education. Geography isn’t the only thing they don’t teach.
Isn’t it apalling how bad the contestants are on Hot Seat.
As for morning TV; that’s because you don’t have to watch it. It’s just white noise.
The fact that we have TV on in the mornings can be because some of us are retired, or work weird hours. I start work at 11.00, unless I’m teaching. And don’t blame me for the because I do TRY to teach all the olden day things such as grammar and that something isn’t “suffink”. I also say DON”T GET A TATTOO.

Oh and Isabel; “C is jumping out at me for some reason” Aaaaah!!! When they mean I don’t have a bloody clue but the answer will magically appear.
Hot Seat gets me growling more than any other show because I always think,” why did you go on?”

Why would they choose the ‘stupid’ runner up of a reality show to be on Celeb Apprentice? Layla didn’t even know what a metre was! How the hell is she going to do well? They obviously have a cast of different ‘types’ of people and needed a dumb english chick. Great message to send to young women out there – all you need to do is act dumb and you will go far girls.

I can see Prue clashing with Layla, can’t imagine she will have much patience with her stupidity. She’ll be shooting her mouth off and shouting her down every chance she can get.

Totally agree with those two clashing Carole.
