In between leading a crusade for truth in baseball and begging New York Mets GM Sandy Alderson to let him play first base, Jose Canseco apparently made a deal to be a contestant on the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice. And I’m shocked to have found out about this from People Magazine and not Canseco himself, who Tweets pretty much everything in his personal life. However, we still don’t know if he ever got his chandeliers back. Don’t leave us hanging, bro.
The next season of Celebrity Apprentice will start up on March 6 and Canseco will star alongside Gary Busey and I’m going to stop right there. This is a pop culture blogger’s wet dream come true. This is two types of awesome crazy and the ratings should be nothing less than “greatest ever.” So what exactly goes into the selection process, Donald Trump?
Now, they’re actually turning people away. “We turned down 35 to 40 people,” Trump says. “We really qualify people.”
The other stars who made the cut include Lil Jon, singer John Rich, Mark McGrath, Playmate Hope Dworaczyk, Marlee Matlin, Lisa Rinna, model Niki Taylor and Star Jones, whom Trump called “really, really smart.” (People Magazine)
Also on this cast are Meatloaf, LaToya Jackson, Dionne Warwick, and David Cassidy, so Trump should have added an extra “really” in there out of respect. If this is the actual cast, who the hell did they turn down? 35 to 40 people weren’t good enough because LaToya and Canseco were really qualified, so they must have been turning away people like the dude who punched Snooki and Ryan Leaf. Admittedly, those would have been awesome choices, too.
After the jump, enjoy some video of Busey, McGrath, Meatloaf and Lil Jon selling pizza for the upcoming season…
Just a heads up, there’s an incredibly annoying scream at the beginning of this video, so check your volume.
