We haven’t found a Germany release date yet, but hopefully it will be around one of the dates above. Keep an eye out for advertisements!
Somewhere in the world, Elvis will be leaving a building. In Celebrity Apprentice land – The Hoff has left the show.
No, he didn’t get fired. He resigned.
David didn’t go into detail but his bombshell didn’t go down well with some of his fellow Apprentices.
“I can’t tell you my disgust when he just said, ‘Hey guys, I’m out,’” spat a furious Jason.
“You’re leaving us in the lurch and if we lose this, if we don’t win this challenge – there’s four dudes and three of them (have to) come to the boardroom.”
Okay Aker, let’s take a few deep breaths, build a boardroom table and move on. The Hoff has. In a cab. Into the night where the family promise he leaves for remains unknown but his admiration for his fellow celebs is no secret.
“I think what I’ve got from this experience is a great amount of respect for my fellow celebrities,” reflects The Hoff. “I feel awful about leaving but I’m very proud to have been part of Celebrity Apprentice.”

MARION Grasby is the first to admit it: she’s a two-time reality TV loser.
The former MasterChef Australia favourite made another untimely exit from Channel 9′s Celebrity Apprentice – after failing to reign in Baywatch star David `The Hoff’ Hasselhoff in an art challenge.
The friendly foodie conceded her “niceness” may have worked against her on a TV program punctuated by powerful personalities and rampaging egos.
TV boss Mark Bouris acknowledged her “gentle soul” during boardroom discussion’s following this season’s art project episode, which saw Grasby lead Team Fortune to a loss against the Ian `Dicko’ Dickson-led Team Platinum.
But the meek-and-mild creator of Marion’s Kitchen food range proved too sweet for the celebrity series.
“Before I went on the show I thought to myself `you know what, I’m going to have to really toughen up otherwise these people are going to be mean to me,” Grasby told www.thetelegraph.com.au.
“But at the end of the day, I just can’t be someone that I’m not.”
The Herald Sun gives us a quick recap of the first episode of Celebrity Apprentice which premiered last night.

YOU’VE got to love David Hasselhoff.
The former Knight Rider and Baywatch star has enough energy to light up a small city.
Hasselhoff, or The Hoff as he likes to be called, is the X-factor that makes this year’s Celebrity Apprentice Australia a treat.
The Hoff didn’t come to Australia to slum it. He brings a passion to the Channel 9 reality show that is infectious.
Last night the men’s Platinum team used the Hoff to win and raise $245,000 for charity in a dog pampering challenge.
The most-watched star in the world – according to the Guinness Book of Records – was unstoppable as he was mobbed by fans on Bondi Beach.
Male celebrities including Ian “Dicko” Dickson, Ben Dark and Vince Sorrenti were in awe of The Hoff.
Former AFL star Jason Akermanis was clearly jealous that The Hoff was getting so much attention.
Even the female Fortune celebrities got caught up in Hoff-mania. Tania Zaetta banged on endlessly about her short stint in Baywatch.
The Fortune females spent most of the dog challenge bitching about one another. The Platinum guys seem much more team spirited.
Things got emotional near the end when The Hoff handed over that monster cheque to the Starlight Foundation and explained how a young child had changed his life on the set of Knight Rider.
Celebrity Apprentice Australia is a winner. Long live The Hoff.

WHEN you sign Elvis Presley to your band, you’re hardly going to hide him down back on tambourine.
You stick him out front, where he can swivel his hips for the screaming fans.
In the opening scenes of The Celebrity Apprentice Australia, contestant Ian “Dicko” Dickson claims David Hasselhoff is his team’s Elvis – the man who will draw hordes of excited fans to Bondi Beach for a dog-wash challenge designed to raise money for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Dicko’s on the money. Hasselhoff, who is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as The Most Watched TV Star in the World thanks to roles in Knight Rider and Baywatch, is dripping in sweat, but he’s indefatigable as crowds flock to Bondi ostensibly to have their dogs shampooed.
“We raised $245,000 in the first round because they used me as bait,” Hasselhoff says of his Team Platinum, a title that conjures images of men slipping bank notes into the garters of exotic dancers.
“They (the fans) didn’t come over to wash their dogs, they came over to take a picture with a guy who is going to give them worldwide publicity. I know what marketing is about. I’ve marketed David Hasselhoff and I’ve marketed The Hoff.”
David Hasselhoff is spending Christmas in Manchester – to star in panto at the Opera House.
The Hoff, best known for the iconic roles of Michael Knight in Knight Rider and Mitch Buchanan in Baywatch, will play Captain Hook in Peter Pan.
The panto arrives at the Quay Street theatre on December 8, but advance tickets went on sale today. It is on until January 13 next year.
Hasselhoff, 59, said: “Get Ready Manchester – The Hoff is coming for Christmas. I’ve been to Manchester before and fell in love with the city so I’m happy to be spending some more time with the Mancunians.”
Sarah Bleasdale, general manager of the Opera House, said: “We are so excited and thrilled with the news that David will be spending the festive season at the Opera House in our panto.
“We can’t wait to welcome him and we know that once our audiences see him in action on stage, they’ll be hooked!”
The Hoff played Hook in Bristol last Christmas.
It will be his first appearance in the city since he sat on the judging panel at the Manchester auditions for Britain’s Got Talent last year.
He had been due to bring his show – An Evening With David Hasselhoff – to the Bridgewater Hall in February, but the performance was cancelled due to problems with ‘touring logistics’.

Coachella Festival has started, and you can expect David Hasselhoff to appear at the yearly festival.

The Knightrider himself was spotted checking into the VIP line Friday wearing a military jacket flanked by model-quality women. The party has officially started.

He is obviously a big fan of music after becoming a serial hitmaker in Germany. The 59-year-old looked in his element today with girlfriend Hayley Roberts as he sauntered around Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in a T-shirt with a peace symbol emblazoned on the front.

Madness wins the fun vote for the day. There’s nothing like British ska to make people (and David Hasselhoff) happy.
It isn’t Coachella without The Hoff and he showed up just before Madness’ sunset set at the Outdoor Theatre. The band even gave him a shout out from the stage.
The band opened with “One Step Beyond” and played a string of hits including the winner for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival day one singalong winner–”Our House.”

Actor and Coachella festival regular David Hasselhoff stole the show during Arctic Monkeys’ set and became a Twitter trending topic.
2012 marks the fifth year David Hasselhoff will have enjoyed the hot summer sun with 80,000 music fans at the Coachella Valley Art & Music Festival.
In an interview with CBS Local, Hasselhoff, the festival’s unofficial mascot of 2012, shared his excitement about the fest and his fans.
Saturday afternoon, Bill Fold, one of the festival’s producers, surprised Hasselhoff with a gift. Upon arrival The Hoff was given a car to drive around the grounds. This wasn’t just any car. He was handed the keys to KITT, the Trans-Am made famous in the 1982 Knight Rider TV series in which Hasselhoff stared. The Hoff was happy to jump right in and take a few parade laps for eager photographers. “Bill Folds really took care of me.” David continued, “I didn’t know he was such a big Knight Rider fan. He’s been so good to me. We were in the front row for every band. I feel very blessed.”
Friday was a busy day for The Hoff as he buzzed from stage to stage catching as many acts as he and British girlfriend, Hayley Roberts could race to. “My first Coachella was five years ago and I haven’t looked back since.”
When asked what his favorite acts of the weekend were so far, he excitedly jumped in, “I loved Kaiser Chiefs. They were incredible. Pulp was fantastic. I hung out backstage with Madness. It was so much fun.”
“My girlfriend turned me on to techno-pop. We were right up front for David Guetta and Calvin Harris. They took really good care of us.”
Hasselhoff commented that he’ll see Dr. Dre and Snoop because “I was told it’s a show not to be missed.” Monday morning he’ll head back to L.A. to hop on a plane bound for New York. “I may be joining a Broadway musical.”
“I think I’ll be back in town Wednesday so I can come back out next weekend.” Hasselhoff continued, “The Coachella audience seems to respond to The Hoff.”
On the set of his new Lifetime movie The Christmas Consultant, David Hasselhoff revealed his thoughts to ET as to why social media sites like Twitter are very beneficial for actors like himself.
“Tweeting is a wonderful thing for actors because now we control the press,” he said. “So if somebody writes something that’s not true…we are able to say, ‘No, no, no, this is what really happened; this is where we really are; this is what we’re really doing; and this is what we’d like to feed out to the world.’ And it’s great.”
Hasselhoff, who is an avid user of social media and is known to express his true opinions, expressed the importance of sticking true to oneself amid false rumors. “You gotta live your life,” he said. “Whatever people write about you–the main thing is there’s one person in the world who knows the truth, and that’s you.”
The 59-year-old actor, who plays a “combination drill sergeant and magical elf” in the film, also expressed his feelings about Dancing with the Stars, on which he once starred. “I’ve opened on Broadway. I’ve performed in front of Mel Brooks and the producers. I’ve done the West End. Nothing was as terrifying as the first night on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ because you just get very little time to practice and then you’re on,” he said
Although he conveyed respect for anyone who performs on Dancing with the Stars, Hasselhoff revealed his point of view as to how the show operates. “It’s not just ‘Dancing with the Stars,’” he theorized. “It’s ‘let’s see your breaking point’…They want to get everybody burning out and getting tired so they grab you as soon as you come in, in your worst moments. So you go, ‘OK, I got this gag.’”
Hasselhoff is currently filming Lifetime‘s The Christmas Consultant in British Columbia.

Every entertainment reporter has an interview wish list. It’s kind of like a letter to Santa but instead of a shiny new bike, you ask the big guy for just five-minutes with Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney or Bono. I too have one of these lists, but mine reads a little different than most.
It’s embarrassingly nostalgic; featuring iconic folks like William Shatner, Betty White and my first legitimate crush: Knight Rider. Well, Christmas came early this year because I finally got my one-on-one with David Hasselhoff.
The Christmas Consultant was shot in the quaint Vancouver suburb of Fort Langley, just around the corner from where I grew up. In the TV movie, The Hoff plays an over-the-top holiday planner with a dark secret and a passion for tacky ties (see the above photo).
Production transformed the town into a holiday happy land complete with fake snow and wreaths in doorways, and The Hoff was in his element. He delivered page after page of dialogue, and between takes he waved and smiled at the curious locals. Crew members said he was hard working and a class act. I would describe him as a 60-year-old man with the energy of a toddler on Christmas morning.
Once I got him in the director’s chair, The Hoff opened up about his new Welsh girlfriend; his love/hate relationship with the press and what holidays are like at the Hasselhoff Residence.
He was gracious, goofy and (in true holiday spirit)… giving.
