Donald Trump has extended an invitation to his boardroom once again. The real-estate mogul has enlisted LPGA pro Natalie Gulbis for the sophomore season of his reality series The Celebrity Apprentice. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Trumo made the announcement while attending the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York City.
Gulbis joins a growing group of celebrities that has previously been reported to be participating on The Celebrity Apprentice. This group includes Joan Rivers and her daughter Melissa Rivers, former NBA star Dennis Rodman, former Baywatch actress Brande Roderick and Keeping Up with the Kardashians starlet Khloe Kardashian.
At the age of 18, Gulbis turned professional after playing for one season on the women’s golf team at the University of Arizona. Her first professional win came in 2007 at the Evian Masters where she defeated Jeong Jang in a playoff to claim the winner’s share of the $3,000,000 purse.
Although Gulbis has only won one LPGA Tour tournament, the 25-year-old golfer has over $3.6 million since finishing second in LPGA Rookie of the Year points in 2002. She is currently ranked 53rd and is considered to be one of the biggest sex symbols of the women’s tour. Moreover, she has posed for FHM magazine where she also write a monthly golf advice column, published her pin-up calendar and has her own Adidas line of golf clothing and accessories. She also has endorsement deals with TaylorMade Golf, Canon, Raymond W.il geneve, Amstel Light, SkyCaddie, Payment Data Systems, MasterCard, Winn Golf Grips and Lake Las Vegas Resort.
Gracing the reality TV circuit isn’t a first for Gulbis. In fact, she has her own reality series, The Natalie Gulbis Show, which follows her life on and off the golf course. The show presently airs on The Golf Channel.
Stay tuned for more updates on The Celebrity Apprentice!
