Presidential contender Donald Trump is out and Arnold Schwarzenegger is in as host of “Celebrity Apprentice.”

But the bigger news, for University of Texas football fans at least, is that this season’s competitors will include Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams, NBC said Thursday.

He’ll be up against actress Brooke Burke-Charvet, “America Ninja Warrior” host Matt Iseman, boxer Laila Ali, Carson Kressley of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” fame, comedian Jon Lovitz, ex-“Big Morning Buzz Live” host Carrie Keagan, mixed martial arts pro Chael Sonnen, Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil, musicians Boy George and Carnie Wilson, NFL alum Eric Dickerson, Olympian Lisa Leslie and “Real Housewives” stars Kyle Richards and Porsha Williams.

This will be the eighth season for “Celebrity Apprentice.” NBC has yet to say when the show will premiere.
