Tyra Banks Joins Celebrity Apprentice

Warren Buffett, Jessica Alba, and Tyra Banks have signed on as board room advisors to Arnold Schwarzenegger for the new incarnation of "Celebrity Apprentice," NBC announced on Thursday.

In addition, former Microsoft CEO and Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer will also join the boardroom along with Schwarzenegger's nephew and entertainment attorney Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger.

NBC describes Buffett as an "investment guru" in addition to being one of the most successful businessmen of all time. Banks is a supermodel, actress and CEO of the Tyra Banks Company. Alba is an actress and founder and chief creative officer of the Honest Company and Honest Beauty.

Schwarzenegger took over as host of "Celebrity Apprentice" after NBC cut ties with Donald Trump following his decision to run for president and subsequent controversial remarks about immigrants. The show will also relocate from New York to the Silicon Beach area of Los Angeles.

Over the course of the series, "The Celebrity Apprentice" has raised more than $15 million for charity. This season's winner will gain the title of the Celebrity Apprentice and a $250,000 check to give to their designated cause.

"Money doesn't make you happy. I now have $50 million but I was just as happy when I had $48 million."
"My body is like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't think about it, I just have it."
"The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent."
"Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer."
"I have to give the audiences what they enjoy seeing while I try to bring in a little something new"
"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."
"You know, nothing is more important than education, because nowhere are our stakes higher; our future depends on the quality of education of our children today."
"People should make up their own mind about what they think of me."

"Failure is not an option. Everyone has to succeed."
