Geraldo Rivera Takes It Off on 'The Celebrity Apprentice'
When you think of potential models for a Cosmopolitan magazine campaign challenge on "The Celebrity Apprentice," your mind probably doesn't wander to a 71-year-old journalist and TV personality.

But contestant Geraldo Rivera simply disagrees with that notion!

Donning his finest in sock fashion and pacing with dumbbells abound, this is what America was gifted on this week's episode.

"I admire him for his enthusiasm, but he could've kept his pants on," said Terrell on "The Celebrity Apprentice."

"Geraldo, you've still got it, baby! Gotta give credit where credit is due," said Ian.

Bustle called Geraldo's nearly-naked moment "the real showstopper" of the episode.

But it wasn't all bad reviews for Geraldo's bangin' bod.

SheKnows even gave the septuagenarian babe a compliment! "Yes, Geraldo is in great shape for a guy his age, but he will be appeal to Cosmo's demographic? Probably not!"

The infamous naked selfie Geraldo tweeted back in 2013 even got a shoutout on the show.

According to Gawker, the "mustachioed, leathery, regret-and-pipe-tobacco scented semi nude selfie ... cost the newsman a speaking gig at Duquesne University."

Poor guy. It's definitely not easy being this beautiful.
