Celebrity Apprentice, Michael Andretti looks to become Donald Trump’s next Celebrity Apprentice as he competes on the NBC show. The former IndyCar champion and current team owner is one of 18 contestants on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” the television show hosted by Trump, who in Central Indiana is remembered for being “fired” as the celebrity pace car driver of the 2011 Indianapolis 500.
Three episodes of the show have been taped. The premiere is Feb. 12.
The cast was introduced this morning on NBC’s “Today Show.”
Among those Andretti will be competing against are American Idol winner Clay Aiken, comedian Arsenio Hall, bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno, supermodel Cheryl Tiegs and singer Debbie Gibson.
Andretti’s race team actually has some hiring to do. With Danica Patrick gone to NASCAR and Mike Conway signed with A.J. Foyt Racing, Andretti Autosport has only two drivers signed for the upcoming Izod IndyCar Series season: Marco Andretti and Ryan Hunter-Reay.
Andretti has said the Indianapolis-based team plans to have four cars this season. IndyCar Rookie of the Year James Hinchcliffe is believed to be one of the top candidates to join the team.
