"You're fired." As a contestant-to-be on next season's "Celebrity Apprentice," former Illinois Gov.
Rod Blagojevich could hear those words from a man who shares his passion for hair.
The new season of host Donald Trump's show begins in March, when contestants will compete, likely dramatically, in business-related tasks for a shot at becoming the next celebrity apprentice.
A source told the Tribune that Blagojevich is expected to appear on the show. But Steve Webster, a spokesman for the show's producer, said he could neither confirm nor deny that, because no contestants have yet been confirmed. The show's 14 contestants won't be announced until late January or early February, Webster said.
