The Nine Network has nabbed David Hasselhoff for Celebrity Apprentice.
“The Hoff” has recently been a judge on Britain’s Got Talent but was shed from the new-look panel headed by Simon Cowell. He has also judged America’s Got Talent, but is best known for his TV work on Baywatch and Knight Rider.
Hasselhoff has been rumoured to be on the shortlist for the second season of the Nine Reality series, but TV Tonight can confirm he will be a starter when filming begins on Monday.
Grabbing “The Hoff” is a knockout casting coup by Nine, ensuring the series will attract plenty of buzz.
Other names rumored to be potentials include Ian “Dicko” Dickson, Jason Akermanis, Nikki Webster, Julie Goodwin, Mark “Chopper” Read, Kris Smith and Stephen Belafonte.
