Trace Revisits Trump—Competes for American Red Cross
You're rehired! Trace Adkins joined his pal Donald Trump on NBC's Today Oct. 12 to announce that he'll be part of a special All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
Trace returns with other contestants from previous seasons, including actors Marilu Henner, Lisa Rinna, Stephen Baldwin and Gary Busey, TV personality Claudia Jordan, illusionist Penn Jilette, pop star Latoya Jackson, rapper Lil John, NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, rockers Brett Michaels and Dee Snider, Playboy playmate Brandy Roderick and reality star Omarosa.
Celebrities will return to raise money for the charity of their choice. Trace, who was recently announced as spokesperson for the American Red Cross 2012 Holiday Giving Campaign, will compete on behalf of the charity.
“When my home was claimed by fire last year, Red Cross volunteers were among the first on-site,” Trace said. “They looked after my family when I couldn’t be there and offered help. We were fortunate because we could replace the things we lost, but that’s not always the case for every disaster victim. That’s when the Red Cross steps in. I am supporting the mission of the Red Cross and hope to help them reach more people in need."
The show begins taping Monday (Oct. 15) and is set to premiere in March on NBC.
Trace first competed in the popular reality series in 2008, ultimately coming in second to news personality Piers Morgan.
