Schwarzenegger Bails on 'Celebrity Apprentice

In a move that should surprise no one, Arnold Schwarzenegger is making it clear that any (unlikely) future version of The Celebrity Apprentice will not include him.

Reads the statement from Schwarzenegger, "I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone — from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department — was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn't have this baggage."

Schwarzenegger likely is getting in front of the inevitable, as future seasons of any Apprentice series seem less and less plausible. On top of the cloud of Trump's lingering involvement, and his very public discussions of the series that solidified his fame, the show's ratings were in the tank.
The whole thing has been most unfortunate for NBC. The network actively has tried to distance itself from Trump (with the notable exception of his 2015 Saturday Night Live hosting gig) after he announced his run for office almost two years ago. And, after all that, found itself inadvertently paying him for the rebranded reality show.
