Arnold Schwarzenegger has been signed on to host the NBC reality show Celebrity Apprentice succeeding Donald Trump after he separated from the show.
Donald Trump and NBC had a fallout when Trump announced that he was running for President of the United States. He tweeted that he was unable to keep up with doing the show given his presidential campaign duties.

He also made some comments about the Mexican immigrants that didn’t sit well with the network. The two parties then sat down for the sake of their long relationship through the shows, The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice. Trump has expressed that he wanted the show to go on and raise good money for charities and good causes.
The issue at hand was to choose the next host who would bring something to the show and replace Trump with ease. The choice this time around was much more charismatic and a much better known name, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnold recently acted in Terminator Genysis. He has served term as the Californian Governor. The 68 years old actor, politician, philanthropist and businessman is all set to feature as the next CEO on the new 2016-17 season of the Celebrity Apprentice.
Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming for NBC Entertainment explained their choice by saying that it was Arnold’s personal passion for the format that Mark Burnett and Donald Trump built over the last decade, as well as his fresh take on how to take it to new heights for today’s audiences, that made him the man to hire.
Talking about the man himself, he said that Arnold Schwarzenegger is the epitome of a global brand in entertainment and business, and his accomplishments in the political arena speak for themselves.
Mark Burnett expressed his opinion about Schwarzenegger saying that Gov. Schwarzenegger will use his vast and highly successful business, political and media experience to drive this hit franchise to new heights.
Trump expressed his happiness over Schwarzenegger succeeding him in a tweet, “Congrats to my friend @Schwarzenegger who is doing next season’s Celebrity Apprentice. He'll be great & will raise lots of $ for charity.”
To all my fans, sorry I couldn’t do The Apprentice any longer—but equal time (presidential run) prohibits me from doing so. Love!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 14, 2015
Arnold expressed his own awe in a tweet as well which said, Wow. I'm blown away and honored by all your tweets. I can't wait to bring my experience to the board room & raise millions for charity.”
