OCC Paul Teutul Sr. on Celebrity Apprentice
Wednesday, January 04, 2012
It was announced today that OCC's Paul Teutul, Sr. will be one of the contestants competing on the new seaon of Donald Trump's show 'Celebrity Apprentice.'
Hot on the heels of his appearance on the recent live broadcast of “American Chopper
” featuring the biker build-off between his son and Jesse James, Orange County Chopper
’s Paul Teutul, Sr. is heading for another reality TV series, this time as a contestant on NBC’s “Celebrity Appearance.” The cantankerous leader of OCC will get to see what it’s like on the other end of the stick as he relinquishes control as the Trumpster calls the shots on this show. We’ve all seen how good Senior is at firing people. Let’s see how he reacts when Donald Trump utters his famous catch phrase “You’re Fired!”
Senior’s business acumen will be put to the test as he gives up building motorcycles for a short stint to become one of 18 contestants who will be divided into groups to work as a team on different business-oriented challenges. In the case of “Celebrity Apprentice,” contestants compete to raise money for their designated charities. Paul Teutul, Sr.’s charity-of-choice is the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Some of the other interesting characters who have been chosen to participate in the upcoming season are Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider, who Sr. should have a connection with seeing as how Dee loves to ride motorcycles. Other notable figures also scheduled to appear are Lou Ferrigno, the former body builder who later starred in the series “The Incredible Hulk.” Maybe Lou and Sr. can compare biceps on the show. Penn Jillette, the antagonistic comedian/illusionist/author, will be another interesting character to watch on the show.
The new season of "Celebrity Apprentice" premieres February 12 on NBC.
