Need a little help identifying the newest batch of “celebrities” on “Celebrity Apprentice?” We’ve got you covered.
The newest cast of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” is as follows (from left):
Carol Leifer: A stand-up comedian and author, she is said to be the “real Elaine,” as the character of Elaine on “Seinfeld” was partially based on her. She recently became a vegan because she felt that as a Jewish lesbian, she “wasn’t part of a small enough minority.”
Sinbad: A stand-up comedian and actor, getting his start on “Cosby Show” spin-off “A Different World.” He has also appeared in “Houseguest” and “Jingle All the Way.”
Maria Kanellis: A WWE wrestler and a model, she is the on-screen love interest to Santino Marella in the soap-opera-for-men world of professional wrestling.
Rod Blagojevich: Blago is currently awaiting trial for scheming to auction off Illinois’s vacant U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder. His wife was on NBC’s “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here” last summer when a federal judge ruled that Blago could not leave the country to participate. He was impeached as the Governor of Illinois just under a year ago.
Sharon Osbourne: She’s the wife to famous rocker Ozzy Osbourne and a judge on “America’s Got Talent.” Her daughter Kelly recently appeared on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” We fully expect son Jack to drop in on CBS’s “Big Brother” house this summer.
Michael Johnson: An Olympic sprinter with 4 gold medals to his credit, Johnson is the only man in history to win gold in the 200 m and 400 m in the same Olympics.
Donald Trump: He’s the host/boss.
Curtis Stone: An Australian chef who has appeared on “Surfing the Menu,” “Dinner in a Box” and “Take Home Chef,” among others.
Cyndi Lauper: She’s the raspy voice behind such 80s hits as “True Colors,” “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and “Goonies Are Good Enough.”
Bill Goldberg: A WCW and WWE wrestler who has had feuds with other wrestlers The Rock, Chris Jericho, The Roll, Preparation H, Kane, Able and Brock Lesnar. Some of those may not be real.
Darryl Strawberry: A prodigious slugger for the New York Mets in the 1980s, Strawberry had some off-field cocaine trouble. He is an eight-time All-Star and has four World Series rings.
Bret Michaels: Frontman for the 80s hair band Poison, Michaels has made a recent “come back” by appearing on VH1’s “Rock of Love” series.
Selita Ebanks: She’s a Victoria’s Secret Angel from the Cayman Islands. She was previously engaged to Mariah Carey’s husband Nick Cannon and appeared in a guest spot on “How I Met Your Mother” (“The Yips”).
Summer Sanders: After winning gold medals in swimming at the 1992 Olympic games, Sanders went on to a successful career as a sportscaster. She also appeared in the movie “Jerry Maguire.”
Holly Robinson Peete: Best known for her roles on “21 Jump Street” and “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper,” Holly is married to former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete. Interestingly, her father Matthew T. Robinson was the original Gordon on “Sesame Street.”
So there you go. Who do you like? Our money is on a final three showdown between Rod Blagojevich, Carol Leifer and Sharon Osbourne.
