NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles®) – When Celebrity Apprentice returns to NBC for the 2016–17 television season, television audiences will no longer hear the once familiar phrase, “You’re Fired,” now that Donald Trump has been terminated from the show.
The new season will feature former California Governor and international movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger in the the role of CEO who will fire and eliminate contestants from the reality show.
Instead, NBC announced that contestants will be eliminated with Schwarzenegger saying, “You’re terminated!”
But writers and focus groups convened by NBC have a little bit of a problem with “You’re terminated!”
“It’s not catchy, not sexy at all,” they said in total agreement.
Although the phrase has a natural connection to the movie series that Schwarzenegger is closely identified with — “Terminator” — writers and focus group members felt the show needed something that would easily standout and be the new show’s memorable trademark.
Today, NBC announced that it has found the perfect phrase to replace, “You’re fired!”
That phrase is:
“Hasta la vista, baby!”
It is “You’re fired,” “You’re terminated,” “You’re out of here,” “See ya later,” all combined. And it will appeal to all audiences, including Spanish-speaking television viewers across the globe.
