Which ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Star Leaves Meat on the Sideline?

Herschel Walker

During Sunday night’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice, I nearly fell off my couch when I heard Herschel Walker say that he didn’t eat meat. But then it clicked … of course he’s a vegetarian. Find an attractive, fit person in any room and it’s a good assumption that he or she might be vegetarian. One peek in Trump’s celebrity boardroom and I think we could all agree that Herschel Walker fits the bill. This Heisman trophy–winning football star is in great shape (and he even has Joan Rivers trying to set him up with her daughter).

With PETA faves Khloe Kardashian and Dennis Rodman already out the door, I was hoping that this vegetarian football hero would last until the end, but Herschel got the boot this week, with Trump professing his love, “I love you. I love you, Herschel. I love you. I’m not a gay man, but I love you. And you’re fired.”

Now that he’s got free time on his hands, we’re hoping we can ask Herschel for a vegetarian testimonial!
