With Donald Trump poised to be sworn into office early next year, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been tasked with taking the reins of the President-Elect’s NBC reality series, The Celebrity Apprentice — which has now been re-dubbed The New Celebrity Apprentice and premieres on Jan. 2.
And whereas Trump was formerly joined in the boardroom by his three famous adult children — Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — NBC has tapped a slew of new advisors to help Schwarzenegger determine who to hire and who to fire. Notable among them is iJustine, a tech vlogger with more than 3 million YouTube subscribers, who is also the author of a memoir titled I, Justine. (For the record, iJustine, whose real name is Justine Ezarik, was also a vocal Hillary Clinton supporter).
Joining Ezarik in the boardroom will be chef Rocco DiSpirito, media mogul Tracey Edmonds, host Leeza Gibbons, quantum physicist Gemma Godfrey, and trainer Bob Harper, according to Variety. Previously announced advisors include investor and philanthropist Warren Buffett, former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, and Patrick Schwarzenegger.

The Apprentice gig won’t be Ezarik’s first turn at reality TV. She recently appeared as a guest judge on The Food Network’s kids cooking competition series Chopped Junior.
