The wait is over – and may not have been worth the anticipation.
“The New Celebrity Apprentice,” the post-Donald Trump edition, debuted Monday and revealed the catchphrase for new host Arnold Schwarzenegger.
There was much speculation about what Schwarzenegger would use to replace President-elect Trump’s signature catchphrase, “You’re fired,” in the new season.

The former Republican governor of California and action superstar chose to deliver lines from two of his own movies.
“So, therefore, Carrie, you’re terminated. Now, get to the chopper!” Schwarzenegger told YouTube personality Carrie Keagan, the first to be cut on the show.

Did not realize Arnold would change up The Apprentice slogan to “You’re terminated.”
Should have seen that coming. ?

In another nod to his “Terminator” films, he told contestant Carrie Wilson in the second hour of the show that she was cut, using the same phrase followed by the famous line from 1991’s “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”: “Hasta la vista, baby.”
Love Arnold’s phrase! “You’re terminated get to the chopper. Jingle all the way back home. You’ll totally recall this till the end of days.”

@kumailn ‘You won’t be back’ didn’t make the 140?

The new host made no mention of Trump, who bowed out of hosting the show in 2015, beginning his presidential campaign.
Trump’s name appeared in the credits of the show as executive producer, but the president-elect said last month that he would not be devoting any time to the series which debuted in 2004.

I have NOTHING to do with The Apprentice except for fact that I conceived it with Mark B & have a big stake in it. Will devote ZERO TIME!

Many Twitter users found Schwarzenegger’s new phrase underwhelming and voiced their opinions in tweets, while others called for a boycott of the show because of Trump.

Arnold’s catchphrase is seriously “Now get to the chopper”? Seriously? #CelebrityApprentice

@mattdpearce If it’s satire, then that’s worth a goofy chuckle.
If they’re serious, then it’s truly hilarious!
Either way, I’m not watching

@mattdpearce This isn’t real. Please tell me this isn’t real. TKTK

@mattdpearce amazed they didn’t go with “Hasta la vista, baby”. it’s still bad, but this is worse.

@mattdpearce I will accept this line if it’s followed by them having to run to the chopper on the top of the building while he chases them
