After being fired in 2008’s season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, Adkins is set to head back in to the boardroom with 13 other former “players” and one former champion for 2013’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
The season, which is set to premiere in March, includes the likes of Stephen Baldwin, Dennis Rodman, Lil Jon, Dee Snider, and Bret Michaels, all of whom are familiar from their previous roles on the hit show.
The contestants were announced during a media event that involved a double-decker bus in Manhattan. From which, Trace tweeted, he had a slight mishap:

The winner of the TV contest–Trump’s selection as “apprentice”–will receive the customary $250,000, to which they are free to donate to the charity of their choice.
In 2008, Trace chose the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, because his daughter suffers from life-threatening reactions to food. This time, Trace will compete on behalf of the American Red Cross.

“When my home was claimed by fire last year, Red Cross volunteers were among the first on-site,” Adkins said, in a statement explaining his choice to support the Red Cross. “They looked after my family when I couldn’t be there and offered help. I am supporting the mission of the Red Cross and hope to help them reach more people in need.”
Trace Adkins also recently became the spokesperson for the American Red Cross during their 2012 holiday giving campaign.
