Trace Adkins Jokes, Threatens in ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Teaser
Trace Adkins is ready to take a second shot at ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and has joined the cast of the upcoming season of ‘All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.’ The new season opens on March 3, but until then, Adkins fans have a fun teaser video to tide them over. The singer doesn’t mince words about what viewers can expect.
“They called me and said, ‘We need your energy and enthusiasm,'” Adkins dishes in the teaser, with a dry deadpan expression.
The three-minute clip shows ‘Apprentice’ fans that this special celebrity-heavy season is going to be rife with drama. In between snippets of interviews with contestants talking about tense moments in the upcoming season, the teaser shows shots of the celebs arguing, threatening one another and working their tails off to win the competition.
“I’m trying to win this thing for the American Red Cross,” Adkins says in the commercial.
After the country crooner and his family lost their home to a fire in 2011, the Red Cross stepped in to help the family get back on their feet. That’s why the ‘Just Fishin” hitmaker is eager to win ‘All-Star Celebrity Apprentice’ even though he had some bad things to say about the show after his Season 7 experience.
“The only reason that I would do a reality television show is because this one at least has a shred of nobility because of the charitable aspect of it,” Adkins told Entertainment Weekly. “That’s the only reason that I even considered coming and doing something like this.”
Whether you’re a fan of ‘The Apprentice’ or you just want to see how Adkins fares in the competition, tune in to the show on NBC on March 3 at 9PM ET.
