The Celebrity Apprentice is an American television reality competition series. It was a variation of The Apprentice series, hosted by then real estate developer (later 45th president of the United States) Donald Trump from 2008 to 2015, and actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger from January to August 2017, when it was canceled.[1][2]

Like its precursor, the show's opening theme song is "For the Love of Money" by The O'Jays. Unlike its precursor, Celebrity Apprentice consists of celebrities as competing apprentices rather than unknowns. Some of the celebrities featured are contemporary while others have been out of the public eye for some time. They compete to win money for a charitable organization of their choice, and come from various mass media fields, including radio and television and professional sport.

The Celebrity Apprentice was linked in seasons to its precursor TV show, The Apprentice, which consisted of seasons one to six and season ten. The Celebrity Apprentice consists of seasons seven to nine and eleven to fifteen.
