Report: Golfer Natalie Gulbis to compete on 'Celebrity Apprentice'
By John Bracchitta, 09/08/2008
After hosting many professional golfers at his golf courses, Donald Trump has now apparently extended the invitation into the boardroom as well.
Trump reportedly disclosed LPGA pro Natalie Gulbis will be a contestant on the second season of The Celebrity Apprentice while attending the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York City, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Saturday.
Although she has only won one LPGA Tour tournament, the 25-year-old Gulbis has earned over $3.6 million since finishing second in LPGA Rookie of the Year points in 2002. She is also considered to be one of the biggest sex symbols of the women's tour and has posed for FHM magazine and published her pin-up calendar. Gulbis also has her own Adidas line of golf clothing and accessories.
If she does participate, The Celebrity Apprentice won't represent Gulbis' first reality TV exposure. The Natalie Gulbis Show, a reality series that follows Gulbis' life on and off the golf course, currently airs on The Golf Channel.
Gulbis joins a growing group of celebrities that have previously been reported to be participating in the show -- including comedian Joan Rivers and her daughter, former I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here! contestant Melissa Rivers; former Celebrity Mole Yucatan winner Dennis Rodman; former Baywatch actress Brande Roderick; and Keeping up with the Kardashians starlet Khloe Kardashian.
The Celebrity Apprentice's second edition is scheduled to tape this fall and premiere in January. NBC announced the show's renewal back in January.
