Gary Busey and Dennis Rodman to compete on "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice"

Tulsa native Gary Busey and former Southeastern Oklahoma State basketball star Dennis Rodman will be among the competitors on NBC’s “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” reports NewsOK TV blogger Melissa Hayer.

“All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” makes its two-hour debut at 8 p.m. Sunday on the peacock network.

The cast also includes Trace Adkins, Marilu Henner, Stephen Baldwin, La Toya Jackson, Penn Jillette, Claudia Jordan, Lil Jon, Omarosa Manigault, Bret Michaels, Lisa Rinna, Dee Snider and Brande Roderick.

The 14 celebrity contestants will compete in business-driven tasks around New York City, testing their ability to work together with the goal of raising money and awareness for their chosen charities.

Each celebrity will have a second chance to be named “The Celebrity Apprentice” and to have the honor of presenting a $250,000 bonus check to their charity. Last season’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” raised more than $2 million for the contestants’ charities, according to a news release.

Donald Trump and his advisers – Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump – will monitor the contestants.

Also, the first time ever, four previous winners will return as advisers in this season of the show: Piers Morgan, first season winner ; Joan Rivers, second season winner ; John Rich, fourth season winner; and Arsenio Hall, fifth season winner.
