Donald Trump’s wild and unpredictable reality show, “The Celebrity Apprentice,” returns Sunday night and fans are gearing up for a season filled with backstabbing and firings.

For the first time in the series franchise, all the celebrity contestants are from previous seasons including former winner Bret Michaels. Trump told the “Today” show earlier this week it was “a mistake” for Michaels to return to the show after already proving he was indeed an Apprentice champion.

Other memorable contestants returning for a chance to win big money for charity include former NBA star Dennis Rodman, wacky Gary Busey, country singer Trace Adkins, rapper Lil’ Jon, soap star Lisa Rinna and queen villain Omarosa.

In a preview clip posted exclusively on Entertainment Weekly, the reality villain appears to already be in attack mode. She tells teammate Claudia Jordan, “Bret better watch his back. I’m coming for him. It would be a personal moment of privilege to take out the only winner in the game.”

This season, fans can also expect past winners Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers, John Rich and Arsenio Hall to appear on the show as Trump’s eyes and ears during the challenges. They will serve as advisors and could influence the boss’s final decision.
