In what is apparently becoming a trend in high-profile reality shows, "The Apprentice" will feature a former NFL player in its cast this year. ("Survivor" will include former Cowboys quarterback Gary Hogeboom.)

The "Apprentice" cast member is Chris Valetta, a former offensive lineman for Texas A&M and, well, calling him a former "NFL" player is probably pushing it. He was briefly signed to the Buccaneers practice squad and never actually made it into a game. He also has been working as a sideline reporter for Texas A&M radio broadcasts, which is as good training for kissing Donald Trump's ass as anything.
