The next 7pm reality offering from Channel 9 has delivered its cast and started filming – Celebrity Apprentice Australia 2012 is on the way.

With a March airdate it will follow nicely from Excess Baggage at 7pm, and given the success of the 2011 offering AND a cast reflective of the success to the first season it’s likely that Celebrity Apprentice Australia will be a success in the same manner. How far will the contestants go to win? What will they do to draw a crowd? Whereas last year’s contestants were all on Twitter only half of this season’s contestants are signed up to the social media service. Will it make a difference? The answer: DAVID HASSELHOFF.
