LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3 (UPI) -- Arnold Schwarzenegger made Celebrity Apprentice his own Monday with a new catchphrase during the show's season premiere.

"You're terminated," Schwarzenegger uttered in the boardroom in reference to his hit Terminator film franchise.

The one-liner replaces former hosts Donald Trump's famous catchphrase "You're fired." The president-elect was replaced by Schwarzenegger on the series as he prepared to run his political campaign however, Trump is still credited as an executive producer.

Schwarzenegger's "You're terminated" line came after he dismissed YouTube star Carrie Keagan. The actor also eliminated Carnie Wilson, singer and member of Wilson Phillips, on the premiere episode with the added Terminator line, "Hasta la vista, baby."

Contestants Laila Ali, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Eric Dickerson, Boy George, Matt Iseman, Carson Kressley, Lisa Leslie, Jon Lovitz, Vince Neil, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Kyle Richards, Chael Sonnen, Porsha Williams, and Ricky Williams still remain.

Schwarzenegger is joined by a number of advisers including Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, Warren Buffett, Steve Ballmer and his nephew Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger.

The New Celebrity Apprentice airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on NBC.

Schwarzenegger previously commented on Trump role as executive producer promising that the hotel-mogul would not be interfering in this new season.

"He made it very clear that he has no interest in being involved. It is now my show, I'm the host, I'm the new boss and I'm going to run this show," Schwarzenegger said.
