It does not take long after a cast of a hit reality show is revealed for online gamblers to get in their action. Last week, the new cast of Celebrity Apprentice was revealed, and Gary Busey was among the contestants.

Busey could be in the middle of the pack as far as betting odds go on winning the season three competition. Busey will be up against some stiff competition, and for once, many of the celebrities that will compete are actually considered to be household names.

The music world is well represented in the new cast. Mark McGrath, the former lead singer of Sugar Ray, is considered to be one of the favorites. Meat Loaf is a rock legend and will likely do anything to win the competition. Rapper Lil Jon and Michael Jackson’s sister, LaToya, are also in the field. John Rich from country group Big ‘n’ Rich, David Cassidy, and Dionne Warwick round out the musicians.

Athletes are represented by former Bash Brother, Jose Canseco. The former Oakland A’s slugger played in a sport where gambling on the outcome was common, so there should be no pressure for Canseco to perform under the television lights.

Star Jones, Lisa Rinna, and NeNe Leakes bring the television star appeal to the new season. Deaf actress Marlee Matlin and supermodel Nikki Taylor will attempt to become champions of Celebrity Apprentice.

In the past few years, American Idol has been the number one reality show that gamblers have placed bets on at Las Vegas sports books. Online sports books have also taken action on shows such as Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. The new season of Celebrity Apprentice begins on March 6th of next year.
