The upcoming season of The Celebrity Apprentice will be the show's first-ever "all stars" edition.

Donald Trump, star an executive producer of the NBC reality show, made the announcement Friday on the network's morning show Today.

Fourteen past contestants will return for the sixth celebrity edition of the reality show competition, including past winner Bret Michaels.

Also competing will be Trace Adkins, Stephen Baldwin, Gary Busey, Marilu Henner, Omarosa Manigault (who originally competed on the first seasons of The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice), La Toya Jackson, Penn Jillette, Claudia Jordan, Lil Jon, Lisa Rinna, Brande Roderick, Dennis Rodman and Dee Snider.

They will once again be playing to win $250,000 for a charity of their choice.

"They're all very smart, and I think they learned a lot from their last go-around," Trump told the Associated Press. "This time, some of them will change their game to fool their rivals -- some for better, some for worse."

Former winners Arsenio Hall, Piers Morgan, John Rich and Joan Rivers also will return to serve as boardroom advisers.

Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and sons, Eric and Don Jr., also are set to return to the show, which starts taping Monday in New York for a March premiere.

The Apprentice debuted in 2004 and was spun off into a celebrity version in 2008.
