Report: Tyra Banks Or Oprah Winfrey To Replace Donald Trump On The ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

‘America’s Next Top Model’ maker Tyra Banks and Oprah Winfrey are reportedly being eyed by NBC to replace 2016 Presidential candidate Donald Trump on the hit show ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’


Trump was forced to part ways with the show when he announced his plans to run for the president as President Barack Obama creeps closer to the end of his run at the top.

His departure has forced NBC to search high and low for his replacement and are now said to be considering Winfrey and Banks for the role.

Kendyl Kearly of the publication ‘Bustle’ hinted that the business women were being considered earlier this week before the show’s creator Mark Burnett (‘The Voice’) announces the premiere date for its next season and which mogul would be given Trump’s enviable power.

Another name that has been thrown into the casting mix is the rapper turned mogul Jay-Z.

With TIDAL‘s misfortune wreaking havoc on his brand I feel taking on the ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ would see the star breathe new life into his brand as he heads towards 50 and finds himself competing in a Drake world.

As it stands his relationship with Beyonce sees them enjoy “royal” status in today’s game.

However, as a new group of Hip-Hop acts rise in his playground the coming years will see him struggle to keep his crown away from the likes of J. Cole, Drake & Kendrick Lamar as they are pushed towards the throne by fans more in tune with ‘The Warm Up‘ than they are with ‘The Blueprint.’

The solution? ‘Celebrity Apprentice’, a platform he could use to present himself as an older, wiser and wealthier statesman with the power to hire and fire celebrities clamouring to impress him- and his globally recognised brand- every week.

Just a thought.

    I would be VERY surprised if they convinced my girl Oprah to replace DT…Oprah’s probably like, “Excuse me? I can make my OWN shows. There isn’t a check big enough. I have no time for the foolishness, okay?”

      Oprah won’t touch it because she already has her o.w.n. signature brand, so it would be a huge insult to her to take on Donalds sloppy seconds. Tyra may have done it if it wasn’t going to clash with ANTM (which seems to be on it’s 200th cycle). I think Piers Morgan would be a good fit for the show. Presumably Donald wants someone less influential than him, so that he can take back his position after he fails the elections.

    JUST CANCEL THE SHOW!

    Kill the whole legacy of this trash! All it does it make RICH people RICHER!

      Because they don’t raise money for numerous amounts of charities?

    Great choices!

  4. Gee August 2, 2015

    I did not see either choice coming and even though both women have impressive resumes and business sense I do not see neither one being interested.

    Please don’t let it be tyra she was so annoying and got it completely wrong on her talk show. I remember when she made bully victims apologies to the bullies, how stupid

    We all know Donald Trump likes to manipulate and stereotype Black Women as ABW on American television for his own entertainment purposes. Hell, that’s why he invited Omarosa 3 times to appear on his show, even though he knew that she didn’t have strong leadership skills. That’s also why Phonegate between Kenya Moore and Vivica Fox was one of the most talked about reality tv scandals of the year. He’s selected Tyra because he’s probably watched Top Model and loves her dramatic outbursts and wants her to drum some ratings for the show. I know for fact Oprah won’t touch the Apprentice even with a bargepole, and good on her. Both of these women are better than this!

    They don’t have enough money to get Oprah to do this s***. Maybe if they offered her NBC, she might think about it.

    They need to pick somebody with less stature. All the names they’ve mentioned so far are American icons with too much to lose.

    Maybe they should pick a lesser known person with like a CEO, or something.

    I could see Jay-Z, Diddy, 50 cent, or Dr. Dre, but I would LOVE to see BERRY GORDY or CLIVE DAVIS do it. They’re OGs in the music industry, and though they’re in their 80s, they’re still active.

    Cancel the show and start over with a fresh idea….. Unfortunately the show wont be the same without Trump and his family…. He brought a certain spice to it that no one would be able to deliver the same way. if they want to keep it going, they need a whole new Name, idea and edge.

  10. another bty day something ain’t wrong August 3, 2015

    They should have someone else replace Donald t instead of Oprah or tyranny bank
