"The New Celebrity Apprentice" is all set to premiere in about a fortnight. Meanwhile, participant Nicole Polizzi gave fans a teaser and revealed Arnold Schwarzenegger gave her a nickname on the show.

In conversation with People, Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi talked about her experience on the show. She said that it was out of her "comfort zone" and was "really nervous" initially.

"I’m just excited for people to see me not drunk. I feel like everyone is used to seeing me drunk and now they’re going to kind of meet who I am today, which is a mom… I just want people to know what my life is like now, but also, I did this show to kind of challenge myself," said the former "Jersey Shore" star.

Nicole Polizzi was 'terrified' to meet Arnold Schwarzenegger

The 29-year-old also spilled beans about her first meeting with Schwarzenegger on "The New Celebrity Apprentice." Polizzi said that she was "terrified" as she is a big fan of him. "It’s kind of being like starstruck but then he’s the terminator, so he might kill me. It’s all of those emotions together," she said.

Furthermore, Polizzi revealed that Schwarzenegger called her his "Danny DeVito" when she first met him. "In the boardroom he was very serious and down to business but then off set he would say, ‘Bye guys,’ and just be so nice and chill and leave in his pajamas," she added.

Meanwhile, fans’ eyes are glued to see how the new host will take the show forward. The actor and former California governor earlier revealed in an interview that he will replace former host Donald Trump’s popular final words: “You’re fired.”
