Arnold Schwarzenegger has made his debut on The New Celebrity Apprentice NBC, revealing the show's new signature catchphrase that would replace predecessor Donald Trump's famed, "you're fired."
As many expected, the slogan was revealed to be "You're terminated" — but he had a different follow-up phrase for each of his castoffs on Monday night's show.
When "terminating" actress and TV personality Carrie Keagan in the first hour of the show, the former California governor gestured off-screen and added: "Now get to the chopper."
Keagan then boarded a waiting helicopter.
The quip is a reference to a popular Schwarzenegger line in the 1987 film Predator.
When dismissing musician Carnie Wilson in the second hour of the premiere, he laid out the bad news with: "You’re terminated... Hasta la vista, baby," combining his two famous lines from The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
While the Austrian-born actor settles into his new role as reality TV’s favorite boss, Donald Trump is still signed on as executive producer of the show.
In December, Trump’s senior advisor defended her boss’ decision to stay on board as the executive producer while he is president.
Kellyanne Conway told CNN: “Presidents have a right to do things in their spare time or their leisure time.”
