Schwarzenegger Decides to Go With All the Catchphrases for New Apprentice
Can't wait for "It's not a tumor! You're just fired."
With our collective cultural amnesia, many people will probably think that Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken over hosting duties on Celebrity Apprentice because Donald Trump is busy being President. But that’s not the case at all. No, Trump was fired from the show back in 2015 because of his remarks about Mexican immigrants being rapists and criminals. Sadly, he was not good enough for reality tv but was good enough for the White House. Since then everyone wondered what catchphrase Schwarzenegger would use instead of Trump’s signature, “You’re fired!” The answer seems to be all of the famous phrases the Austrian actor/former Governor has ever been famous for.
On Monday night’s premiere of the reality show, when it came time for Schwarzenegger to eliminate YouTube personality Carrie Keagan, he said, “You’re terminated. Get to the chopper.” Oof. So that was a combination of two of his most famous lines from The Terminator and Predator. But that wasn’t the final version.
In a second episode that aired immediately after, Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson had to go. But this time he switched it up and said, “You’re terminated. Hasta la vista, baby.” So, it looks like Schwarzenegger’s main catchphrase will be “You’re terminated,” and then he’ll throw in another of his famous lines.
How long could this continue? Well they’ll certainly run out of iconic lines fairly fast but the actor has a lot of them. Here are some future possibilities:
“You’re terminated. You’re luggage!” (hands contestant luggage)
“You’re terminated. I’m the party pooper.”
“You’re terminated. But, I’ll be back.”
(Second to last episode of Celebrity Apprentice in which Arnold pulls a twist and fires the one that nobody expected)
Schwarzenegger – “Remember, contestant, when I promised to kill you last?”
Contestant – “That’s right! You did!”
Schwarzenegger – “I LIED! You’re Terminated.”
As embarrassing as it is to watch the greatest action movie star of all time on this stupid fucking show, I’d still prefer that he switch places with Trump. Schwarzenegger in the White House would be pretty interesting.
