Report: 'Mad Money' host Jim Cramer to judge celebrity 'Apprentice'


By Christopher Rocchio, 10/29/2007 

Donald Trump wanted Jim Cramer to compete on The Apprentice's upcoming celebrity edition, however he'll apparently have to settle for CNBC's Mad Money host joining him in the boardroom instead.

Cramer will take an Apprentice boardroom seat alongside Trump and his daughter Ivanka during the NBC reality competition's upcoming celebrity installment, Broadcasting & Cable reported Monday. 

While Cramer's boardroom gig is currently slated to last just one episode, the Mad Money host says he would welcome the opportunity to participate in more of the currently-filming seventh The Appentice edition's boardroom grillings.

"I'd do anything," Cramer told Broadcasting & Cable.  "If they wanted me to carry a sign on the set, I'd do it."

The Apprentice's celebrity edition was announced after a two-month public feud that began with NBC leaving the one-time smash-hit but now ratings-challenged reality series off its 2007-2008 schedule and Trump responding by publicly proclaiming that he was "moving on" and quitting the show.

Shortly after it was formally announced, The Donald boasted that the cast of celebrity participants would include Cramer as well as several other A-list stars such as Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Tony Hawk and Pete Rose.

However when the identities of The Apprentice's actual celebrity cast began to emerge earlier this month, they weren't as impressive as the names Trump had previously mentioned.  According to recent reports, the competition will include supermodel Carol Alt; actor Stephen Baldwin; wrestler John Cena; actress Marilu Henner; professional boxer Lennox Lewis; mixed martial arts fighter Tito Ortiz; former The Sopranos actor Vincent Pastore; former KISS frontman Gene Simmons; and The Apprentice first-season contestant Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth.
