Carol Leifer on Apprentice

Stand-up comedian Carol Leifer rounds out the Celebrity Apprentice cast and brings veganism into primetime.

This March, a vegan will be battling to stay out of the boardroom and in Donald Trump's good graces. Carol Leifer joins the cast of Celebrity Apprentice, where she will compete against 13 other famous personalities, ranging from rocker Brett Michaels to former politician Rob Blagojevich, to win business related tasks in a race around New York City. Winning team members donate the money to a charity of their choice, with past seasons giving more than $3.5 million to organizations worldwide. Leifer, a longtime stand-up comedian and Emmy-nominated writer on Seinfeld, first became vegetarian after moving in with partner Lori Wolf. Now vegan, she will have the opportunity to put her skills and fame to the test on the show, all while supporting a good (and hopefully vegan) cause.
