Arnold Schwarzenegger to Host 'Celebrity Apprentice'

Arnold Schwarzenegger will succeed Donald Trump as the host of NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice."

Let that soak in. It's not a dream, it's not a hoax: Arnold is taking over the reality competition series, leaving us desperately hoping "You've been terminated" or "Hasta la vista" will replace "You're fired" as the tagline.

The announcement follows the network's decision in June to sever ties with Trump after the real-estate mogul-turned-reality star-turned president candidate made controversial statements about immigrants.

It also arrives amid the veteran action star's Hollywood comeback, following two terms as governor of California. Since announcing his return to acting, he's appeared in such films as "The Expendables" franchise, "The Last Stand," "Maggie" and, of course, "Terminator Genisys."

"I have always been a huge fan of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork," Schwarzenegger said in a statement. "I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let's get started!"
