Politicians vying outrageously for the attention of millions via reality TV show performances is nothing new. But Arnold Schwarzenegger is really horsing around in stealing the saddle from Donald Trump in the first look at a poster of NBC’s The New Celebrity Apprentice:
The macho pose finger-pointing atop a snow-white steed is reminiscent of fairytales, cowboy movies, beer adverts and Uncle Sam ‘I Want YOU’ posters.
What’s with the horsey Arnold? Is this a clue for something the contestants have to come up with? Is the new show going to be based in a ranch in Texas? Or are you just showing off your excellent fertility? Remind yourself of the intro of The Celebrity Apprentice:
The 68-year-old former governor of California has ridden to the rescue of the program, who had been lacking a host, as head jockey. He will be judging a candidate team including:
Candidates: Neil, Richards, George, Ali and Sonnen
The show has distanced itself from last stud Trump — who was fired from the original show last year in the wake of his comments on Mexican — by the introduction of Schwarzenegger and the clever pasting of ‘New‘ into the title. The previous seven celebrity seasons ran from 2007 until 2015. The game show features a gaggle of kind-of-not-really famous people as ‘apprentices’ vying to win money for charity.
