By David Knox on January 28, 2013 / Filed Under News 10

2013-01-27_2324TV Tonight can reveal boxing champ Jeff Fenech is set to try his hand at Celebrity ApprenticeĀ in the Mark Bouris boardroom.

A number of names have been rumoured in the press with News Limited tipping Stephanie Rice, Kris Smith, Amanda Vanstone, Dawn Fraser, Nikki Webster, Dermott Brereton, Peter Berner, Prue Macsween and ex-Big Brother housemates Layla and Ben.

Some of those names are spot on, but others are not…

The series begins production this week in Sydney.

    I agree, cynical old codger, she and Andrew Bolt would make a perfect couple.

    Some interesting names there. Jeff Fenech might surprise a few, should be good to see how he works in such an environment.

    Not keen on the “reality stars”, I prefer to watch those that have achieved something meaningful and being a contestant on a TV game show doesn’t rate highly to me.

    Hope Ben doesn’t try any of his bully boy tricks on Jeff Fenech because it won’t work on him the way it did on Estelle!

    Why do they keep trying to pass off former reality show contestants as “celebrities”?

    Fully agree with your Phew McSqueely comments. unfortunately she is appearing on most networks these days, seems she has tapped into all their ‘must have’ status list.

    Unfortunately her main claim to fame, is to launch into an anti government rant at every opportunity, regardless of the topic, all she needs for her is for her lips to be moving, and unfortunately that is most of the time.

    Where next for Phew? probably the Bolt report!.

    Why is it that 9 have at least one AFL nuffy on every reality show?

    Anyone would think they have the rights to AFL seeing they go out of their way to promote it.

    Prue will eat most of these people for breakfast.

    First challenge: sell a product with “I love youse all” as the slogan and catchphrase.

    Can’t stand Prue McSween. And of all the contestants from Big Brother, Ben is the last person I ever wanted to see again on TV. Layla is too dumb, can’t imagine her being able to contribute much in the challenges. Sam or Ray would be better, at least they seemed intelligent.
