Meet The Cast Of 'Celebrity Apprentice' Season 8

The Donald won't be in the boardroom.

NBC revealed Thursday the cast of the forthcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice

Sixteen celebrities have been hired. 

The show — which made Donald Trump's "You're fired!" a catchphrase — famously puts the stars from various walks of Hollywood life through a series of challenges, in which they hustle hard and pull out their Rolodexes to earn money for their favorite charities. Past winners have included media personality Piers Morgan, country singer John Rich, and the late comedian Joan Rivers. The Apprentice.

Though Donald Trump is been busy ruffling feathers on the campaign trail in his bid for the Republican presidential nominee, that won't be the reason he'll be absent from the Celebrity Apprentice's eighth season. 

You may remember that Trump was dropped from the hit NBC show last summer after his derogatory remarks about Mexicans immigrants. The network at the time also said it would not broadcast his Miss Universe pageant.

Instead, celeb-contestants will have to try to appeal their case in the boardroom to The Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Though he's great at giving motivational speeches and is down for the business of climate change, he'll have a little help advising the stars. According to Entertainment Weekly, billionaire investor Warren Buffett, model and media maven Tyra Banks, the Los Angeles Clippers' owner Steve Ballmer, The Honest Company founder and actress Jessica Alba, and Arnold's nephew Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger will join him at the big table throughout the season, though there's no word yet on whether any of the judges will have a permanent seat. 

Without further ado, here's who will be competing during the fifteenth overall season of the show — and where you know them from:

Boy George — DJ and Culture Club frontman known for hits "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" and "Karma Chameleon"
