Get set for television’s biggest week of the year when Channel Nine premieres the long-awaited series return of The Block on Monday, April 16, as well as the second series of Celebrity Apprentice on Wednesday, April 18.
Both hit series will launch in a week that also sees Nine broadcasting the TV Week Logie Awards and premiering The Voice, the hotly anticipated quest to discover Australia’s best vocalists, on Sunday, April 15 at 6.30pm.
In Celebrity Apprentice, some of Australia’s best known and most controversial celebrities will be working to raise money for their various charities.
This show will surely leave the contestants wishing they had gotten a business degree online by the time it is over!
The Apprentice Australia’s Mark Bouris, one of the country’s most successful and high-profile businessmen and Chairman/Co-Founder of wealth management company Yellow Brick Road, will helm the new series.
This time, joining him in the boardroom are:
International superstar David Hasselhoff
TV and cabaret entertainer Patti Newton
TV star Ian “Dicko” Dickson
Controversial former AFL player Jason Akermanis
Next Top Model judge Charlotte Dawson
Glamour sportswoman Lauryn Eagle
TV presenter Ben Dark
Bollywood actress Tania Zaetta
Celebrity cook Marion Grasby
Comic Vince Sorrenti
Reality TV star Nathan Jolliffe
Comedienne Fiona O’Loughlin
At stake is $100,000 for the winning celebrity apprentice’s charity.
All of the (in)famous contestants will be competing in challenges by using their fame, their contacts and anything else they can think of to win for their respective charities.
The celebrities will be subjected to long hours, taxing mental challenges and intense scrutiny, all without their usual safety net and support team of agents, managers and personal assistants.
