I find it ironic that they call this show The Celebrity Apprentice as most of the “celebrities” are names you’ve never heard of. What’s below D-list? The only person I really like is Cyndi Lauper, and I doubt she’ll win. Then again, is winning The Celebrity Apprentice really winning anything at all? It’s like being the best at brushing your teeth. No one is impressed.

Men’s Team:

Rod Blagojevich (Impeached Illinois Governor, yea – that’s quality)
Bill Goldberg (Two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion)
Michael Johnson (Olympic track and field gold medalist)
Bret Michaels (former Poison front-man, VH1 Reality Star – so he’s partially just a star for being a reality star?)
Sinbad (comedian)
Curtis Stone (TV Chef, best known for TLC’s “Take Home Chef”)
Darryl Strawberry (former Major League Baseball player & All-Star)

Women’s Team:

Selita Ebanks (Victoria’s Secret Model)
Maria Kanellis (WWE Wrestler)
