Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Joins Next Season’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Cast
Twisted Sister vocalist Dee Snider is one of 18 celebrities who will be competing in season five of 'The Celebrity Apprentice,' which is set to premiere on NBC in early 2012. The cast members reportedly outed themselves in New York on Oct. 18 when they were seen on the streets testing their sandwich-making skills in what appeared to be one of the show's competitions.
Snider will aim to win the title by outsmarting his competitors -- and by the looks of the new line-up, the rocker's odds are pretty good. A few of Snider's opponents will be 'New Jersey Housewife' Teresa Guidice, former 'American Idol' darling Clay Aiken, model Cheryl Tiegs, pop singer Debbie Gibson, 'Incredible Hulk' star Lou Ferrigno and comedian Lisa Lampanelli.
Past episodes have shown that those competitors with street smarts often triumph over those who have an academic advantage, which adds to the overall enjoyment of watching the show. In 2010, Poison frontman Bret Michaels won 'The Celebrity Apprentice' title, beating out actress Holly Robinson Peete.
One can only hope that Snider's 'We're Not Gonna Take It' attitude benefits him to the fullest so that he might avoid hearing the dreaded words, "You're Fired."
