NBC revealed the full line-up of stars set to participate in the eighth edition of the reality show (and 15th season of The Apprentice franchise) and the names run the gambit from sports stars to reality TV fixtures. Joining new host Arnold Schwarzenegger in the boardroom are:

  • Laila Ali, retired boxing world champion and daughter of Muhammad Ali

Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, Warren Buffett, Steve Ballmer and Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger will serve as advisers on the new season.

The action will shift from New York to California this year with a new headquarters in Silicon Beach. According to NBC, the contestants will "compete in challenging, business-driven tasks more focused than ever on technology and innovation, testing their ability to work together as a team while raising money and awareness for their favorite causes."

NBC severed ties with Donald Trump in June 2015 after the Republican presidential candidate made several derogatory remarks about immigrants. (Trump released a statement saying he planned on stepping away from the show anyway because of his presidential run.) In September, it was announced that Schwarzenegger would be replacing Trump as the host.

"I have always been a huge fan of The Celebrity Apprentice and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork," the Terminator actor and former Governor of California said in a statement. "I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let's get started!"

Kyle and Porsha have already tweeted about their excitement for joining the business competition series.

Kyle and Porsha will follow in the footsteps of many 'Wives that have appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice before them, including Claudia Jordan, NeNe Leakes, Lisa Rinna, Teresa Giudice, Brandi Glanville, and Kenya Moore.
