It's Official...Jose Canseco is on The Apprentice

The worst kept secret is out of the bag (The Hall told you about it back in October)...Jose Canseco is a contestant on the upcoming installment of "The Apprentice".

NBC made it official with a press release today...here's the story courtesy of ET Online:

What drama might unfold when the likes of LaToya Jackson, Gary Busey and "Real Housewife" NeNe Leakes vie for the title of "The Celebrity Apprentice"?

Also competing for Donald Trump's approval will be Star Jones, Lisa Rinna, Marlee Matlin, Dionne Warwick, David Cassidy, John Rich, former "Survivor" champ Richard Hatch, Meat Loaf, Mark McGrath, retired baseball badboy Jose Canseco, rapper Lil Jon, model Niki Taylor and reigning Playboy Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk.

"I am thrilled at the return of 'The Celebrity Apprentice,'" executive producer Mark Burnett said in a statement. "It has become America's Sunday night guilty pleasure, while at the same time, raising millions for charity. This season is the best yet. Buckle your seatbelts."

You'll remember back in November when news came that the former MVP broke a tooth while eating pizza during a challenge.  Ouch...that'll be a painful episode.

The show returns Sunday, March 6 on the peacock network...and I've gotta tell you, I'm excited to Canseco back on television. Dude was actually entertaining while he was on VH1's The Surreal Life a few years back. That said...I'm more excited that Gary Busey will be competing for Trump's eye.

Gary. Effing. Busey!
