Celebrity Apprentice filming at Universal Orlando

Posted By on Tue, Apr 22, 2014 at 1:36 PM

The 14th season of Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice doesn't debut until late this year, but some guests at Universal Orlando this week got a surpise in-person sneak preview of the hit NBC show. Production crews were seen inside Universal's theme parks, filming contestants participating in the "reality competition."

Spoiler Warning: Leave now if you don't want to know who is in the yet-unannounced cast of the upcoming season.

While walking around Universal Studios Florida, I happened upon a filming crew along the waterfront in front of the soon-to-open Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley. I spotted singer Kevin Jonas, baseball star Johnny Damon, and TV host Leeza Gibbons.

The fouth person with them has been variously identified either Brandi Glanville or Kate Gosselin; I don't know my reality stars well enough to say for sure, so leave your guess in the comments below.

The contestants were surrounded by a gaggle of camera crews, production assistants, and security guards, who were insistent on not allowing guests to stop for pictures, but I managed to take these spy snapshots while on the move.
