Originally posted 07/26/2016 05:45PM

Shortly after Ian Ziering started slaying sharks on Syfy's mega-popular Sharknado series, the actor got a chance to do something he'd never done before – learn about the business world.

Appearing on The Celebrity Apprentice's seventh season, Ziering worked his way through a variety of sales, marketing, creative and branding tasks laid out each week by Donald Trump, who has since been named the Republican presidential nominee. Looking back on it, Ziering credits Trump with igniting a passion in him of which he was previously unaware.

"I got some great lessons of him," Ziering tells PEOPLE for his former "boss." "He steered me in the direction that revealed some skill sets from me that I never knew I possessed that I've been able to capitalize on."

We Picked Trump's Cabinet from the Cast of Celebrity Apprentice

Originally posted 07/19/2016 12:50PM

Republican candidate for president Donald Trump has already announced at least one member of his presumptive Cabinet – running mate Mike Pence, who would serve as Vice President – but the rest of the picks remain a mystery. Perhaps because Trump has said that he has "a very good brain" and would "consult" himself on, for example, foreign policy if elected, we haven't gotten a very clear image of what his Cabinet would look like.

She's definitely not with him.

She says that "the statements that come out of his mouth on a continuous basis daily are a little disturbing, but that's on him. If that's how he's deciding to run his campaign, that's okay because #I'mwithher."

It's a situation that haunts all of our nightmares: You're gossiping about a friend (or frenemy) of yours via text, only to discover that you've actually sent that gossipy text to the very person you're gossiping about.

Well, comedian Lisa Lampanelli lived out that very horror during the fifth season of Celebrity Apprentice – also known that year as Celebrity Fight Club because Lampanelli "hated everyone" – when she sent a text gossiping about costar Teresa Giudice to teammate Aubrey O'Day … only to find that the message didn't reach its intended recipient.

The Celebrity Apprentice will be back … with the Terminator himself!

Arnold Schwarzenegger will host the reality competition when it returns for the 2016-17 season, NBC announced Monday.

"Wow. I'm blown away and honored by all your tweets," he Tweeted about the news. "I can't wait to bring my experience to the board room & raise millions for charity."

The actor is replacing Donald Trump, who cut ties with NBC after declaring that he is seeking the Republican nomination for president.

Trump, 69, congratulated Schwarzenegger on Twitter, saying he'll "be great" and raise "lots of [money] for charity." He also apologized to his fans for being unable to continue with the program because of the Federal Communications Commission's guidelines for candidates.

It's like the stars are switching places: Schwarzenegger, 68, turned to politics as governor of California in 2003, and he served two terms in office.

He may have found fame in Beverly Hills, 90210, but Ian Ziering has set his sights on another zip code these days. Ziering relocated to New York City to vie for the title on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice. Besides being a clothing entrepreneur – though he's also Chippendales-approved and ready for any tasks that require shirtlessness – Ziering has one major edge on his opponents: Have they ever faced off against a throng of sharks? That is, not in the boardroom …

The Celebrity Apprentice.

After weeks of intense challenges, both physical and mental, I am thrilled that Leeza Gibbons was named the winner of The Celebrity Apprentice, proving that success can be achieved through positive leadership, grace and elegance. More on that shortly …

First and foremost I want to say that being a part of Celebrity Apprentice has definitely been one of the most difficult (and rewarding) things I have ever done in my life. It was such an amazing experience and an honor to have this opportunity to raise awareness about Epidermolysis Bullosa (EBKids.org), bring in more than $300,000 for this wonderful organization and receive countless Tweets and Facebook messages from families who live with EB.

Now, last night's finale was quite the show! I am thrilled that my friend Leeza Gibbons reigned victorious after all of these weeks of challenges. Though I was a part of Geraldo Rivera's final team, and I gave 150 percent to helping him win for his charity, I think that the right person came out on top. Leeza played the game with grace and a spirit that made this extremely difficult endeavor a little easier for all of us that got to compete with her this season. She is, pure and simple, a class act!
