The Trumpster has picked his cast list for Celebrity Apprentice 2012. What it lacks in genuine celebrities it makes up for in, uh… something else. (Note: A few of these are legitimate celebrities.)
• Clay Aiken: Singer, Dad, Gay, runner-up on American Idol season 2.
• Marco Andretti: IndyCar series driver. Michael Andretti is his Dad and his grandfather is Mario Andretti.
• Tia Carrere: Musician and actress (Wayne’s World.)
• Adam Carolla: Was on The Man Show, and cohost of Love Line with Dr. Drew Pinsky.
• Lou Ferrigno: Actor and bodybuilder. Was The Incredible Hulk on TV. Regular appearances on The King of Queens.
• Deborah Gibson: You know her as Debbie Gibson! A former pop singer from the 80’s.
More after the lackluster jump.
