Arnold Schwarzenegger is replacing Donald Trump as host of The Celebrity Apprentice

You're... hired? On Monday, NBC announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger, international film star and former governor of California, would take over Donald Trump's previous gig as the host of the network's popular reality TV show The Celebrity Apprentice.

Trump "made it clear that he wanted The Celebrity Apprentice to be able to continue to raise millions of dollars annually for worthy causes, and now NBC and I have found an amazing new leader to do just that," said executive producer Mark Burnett. NBC dumped Trump in June after he made derogatory comments about Mexican immigrants.

Schwarzenegger will helm the show beginning in the 2016-2017 season, so we'll have to wait awhile to find out if he'll stick to the usual "You're fired!" script, or personalize his tenure as host with a more Ah-nold-like "Hasta la vista, baby."
