Schwarzenegger Fires "The Apprentice"
by James Dyer
March 3, 2017



Fans of "Celebrity Apprentice" are about to lose the show's biggest asset as Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be returning to host another season of the show.

"I learned a lot, I had a great time, it was a really great opportunity," Schwarzenegger said, speaking exclusively to Empire. "But under the circumstances I don't want to do it again."





Talking to Schwarzenegger about his role in upcoming drama Aftermath, Empire mentioned the ailing reality show and a recent report by The Wrap that both viewers and sponsors have been departing in droves. Schwarzenegger confirmed the story and claimed that Donald Trump is to blame.

"It's not about the show," he explained. "because everyone I ran into came up to me and said 'I love the show... but I turned it off because as soon as I read Trump's name I'm outta there!'"

"NBC did everything they could to promote the show and [producer] Mark Burnett did a fantastic job. No one really knew that this was going to happen and I think that everyone was caught off guard."

"When people found out that Trump was still involved as executive producer and was still receiving money from the show, then half the people started boycotting it."





Social media campaign #grabyourwallet appears to have been a factor, imploring consumers and sponsors alike to ditch "Celebrity Apprentice" in direct response to the US President's continued involvement. The boycott's success may well be reflected in the show's viewing figures and the hasty retreat of commercial backers.

"Even if asked to do it again I would decline," said Schwarzenegger. "With Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don't want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show. It's a very divisive period now and I think this show got caught up in all that division."

What a joke! It's Trump's fault, it couldn't possibly have anything to do Arnold's hosting abilities. Man up Arnold.

What they need to do is get a businessman to host the show (maybe Kevin O'Leary). What I'd really like to see is a return to the original format, no washed up celebrities just men and women competing for a job.

Duster76, I like your idea -- a businessman (maybe someone from Shark Tank) would be a good match with Celebrity Apprentice.

If it's celebrities or regular folks, it is fun to watch people doing tasks outside their comfort level.

So I hope the show is renewed.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says President Trump Bashed his "Celebrity Apprentice" because He Didn't Vote for Him
by Lisa de Moraes
April 6, 2017



President Donald Trump, a decades-long friend of Arnold Schwarzenegger, savaged him as host of "Celebrity Apprentice" because he was ticked Arnold wouldn’t vote for him. This according to Schwarzenegger, talking to CNN’s "The Messy Truth" host Van Jones.

And I told others not to vote for him,” Schwarzenegger added.





In January, then POTUS-elect Trump, took time out from forming his cabinet, dismantling Obamacare, and pounding out a plan to finance the wall he insists Mexico would bankroll, to savage Schwarzenegger’s performance as the reality series’ executioner-in-chief:

Wow the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got ‘swamped’ (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT, ” Trump tweeted.





Then, in February, President Donald Trump opened off his National Prayer Breakfast telling religious leaders and diplomats, “We had tremendous success on The Apprentice and, when I ran for president, I had to leave the show. And they hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger to take my place. And we know how that turned out – the ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster,” said Trump, who remains a producer on the NBC series. “And I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can. For those ratings. Okay?

The final jab came when Schwarzenegger announced in March that he was exiting the show because its reputation had been tarnished by Trump. Trump responded Schwarzenegger couldn’t quit because he’d been fired.





“I think it’s funny,” Schwarzenegger told Jones Wednesday night of Trump’s National Prayer Breakfast put-down. “I have thick skin, this doesn’t bother me at all.

He added, “it gave me the opportunity to shoot back and say the show didn’t go well because one third of the audience left – boycotted the show, because you’re the executive producer, Donald Trump. If you would not have opened your mouth and tell everybody you’re executive producer we would have have really great ratings on the show.

Turning back to Jones, Schwarzenegger said, “The advertisers left, the audience left. They hate the guy! I was caught in the middle of this political thing. That’s why I said I’m not going to do the show again.
