The cast for the 2013 season of the popular CBS reality show Celebrity Apprentice was recently unveiled and it includes two of the most high profile frontmen of the Eighties hair band era. Poison vocalist Bret Michaels and Twisted Sister mainman Dee Snider are both set to be among the 14 contestants for the upcoming season.
Michaels won the show back in 2010 and is looking to become the first ever two-time winner on the popular Donald Trump-hosted competition that pits celebrities against one another as they try and complete various business related tasks. Snider is also a repeat contestant, although he was eliminated before reaching the top spot when he took part in this year’s competition.
As always, contestants on the show will play to win a $250K jackpot that will be donated to the charity of their choice. When Michaels won in 2010 his winnings went to the American Diabetes Association, while Snider played for the March of Dimes.
Speaking to CBS news last summer, Michaels said “I think that winning The Apprentice was such an amazing feeling. You can have as much arguing and fighting as you want but when people are actually fighting for a real cause close to their heart, then that makes it the best emotions to watch.
While Michaels is the only former winner who will actually be competing this time around, four others will apparently also be present from time to time throughout the season. Piers Morgan, Arsenio Hall, Joan Rivers, and John Rich will be by Trump’s side in advisory roles.
This is a complete list of the contestants for the 2013 season of the show: Trace Adkins, Stephen Baldwin, Gary Busey, Penn Jillette, Lil’ Jon, Dennis Rodman, Dee Snider, Marilu Henner, LaToya Jackson, Claudia Jordan, Omarosa, Lisa Rinna, Brande Roderick and Bret Michaels.
