5 sports stars who could win 'Celebrity Apprentice' this season

BY foxsports • January 28, 2016

There'll be no shortage of sports stars in the boardroom this season.

The contestants (or cast members) for the eighth season of NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" have been announced, and it's an impressive lineup — not least because the head of the boardroom this time around will be Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The Hollywood A-lister will have plenty of rich-and-famous advisers surrounding him, including Warren Buffett, Tyra Banks and Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, who alone would make for a compelling reality-TV boss.

Other sports stars who'll be joining him on air as contestants include:

-- Ricky Williams, the former Miami Dolphins running back and Heisman-winning Texas Longhorns great

-- Eric Dickerson, a Hall of Fame running back who played for multiple NFL teams, including the L.A. Rams.

-- Chael Sonnen, the mixed-martial arts star and UFC legend

-- Laila Ali, the former world boxing champ and daughter of Muhammad Ali

-- Lisa Leslie, ex-WNBA champ and four-time Olympic gold medalist

Do any of these sporting greats have a shot against the likes of Brooke Burke-Charvet, Jon Lovitz, Snooki, Carnie Wilson, Boy George or Vince Neil?
