Donald Trump's hit reality TV Show, The Apprentice returns for a seventh season in January. What makes this season different from the last is this time it's a celebrity edition. The new season of Celebrity Apprentice will showcase the likes of boxing champ Lennox Lewis, actor Stephen Baldwin, Kiss' Gene Simmons, and actress Marilu Henner amongst other celebs battling it out for $250,000 dollars of Trump money to be donates to their favorite charity

Quoted by TV Guide, Trump stated: "I wasn't going to do any more but when NBC mentioned the celebrity concept, I agreed to sign for two seasons."

Trump added to the Publication: "Instead of working for me, they're working for charities. They raised millions doing the tasks. In some challenges we went back to season one where we did things like sell lemonade and hot dogs on the street. It's very humbling."

Trump confirmed: "100 celebrities applied," adding, "We took 14, but a couple of them cancelled because they couldn't stand the concept of being fired. The level of viciousness, hatred and competitiveness was unbelievable. They fought hard because they have their images to protect."

On the subject of Lennox Lewis and actor Stephen Baldwin joining the cast, Trump stated:

"Baldwin was much better than I expected, and Lewis is a standout. He not only has physical strength but great mental strength."
