The network on Tuesday announced the lineup of 16 personalities who will compete for their favorite charities as the reality show returns for a new season in the boardroom with Donald Trump. The new season premieres Sunday, Jan. 4, at 9 p.m. ET before settling into its regular time slot on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.

Other cast members on tap include "Deadliest Catch" star Sig Hansen, NFL great Terrell Owens, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, comedian Gilbert Gottfried, musician Kevin Jonas and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson.

Rounding out the rivals are actors Lorenzo Lamas and Ian Ziering, Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson, actress Vivica A. Fox, TV personality Leeza Gibbons, reality star Brandi Glanville and former star of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," Kenya Moore.

"This season of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' is on point to be the best yet," Trump said in the announcement. "With 16 extraordinary contestants bringing their energy to the boardroom, it is sure to be a hit, as always."

Previous "Celebrity Apprentice" winners are returning as advisors, including the late Joan Rivers (who filmed her appearances prior to her death in September).
