Here's How Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Firing Contestants on 'The New Celebrity Apprentice'

The latest iteration of Comcast-owned NBC's Apprentice reality TV franchise-which featured now president-elect Donald Trump as host for more than a decade-lost the ratings battle with rival networks ABC and CBS (cbs) during the 8 p.m. ET primetime slot on Monday night.

New host Arnold Schwarzenegger led the show's return down by 1 point from past year and swamped by "The Bachelor".

Arnold Schwarzenegger made his "Celebrity Apprentice" hosting debut Monday night by revealing his apt catchphrase: "You're terminated". But the star's fans also recognized a nod to another action movie - 1987's "Predator".

When "terminating" actress and TV personality Carrie Keagan in the first hour of the show, the former California governor gestured off-screen and added: "Now get to the chopper". The new boss then sat back in his chair and lit a cigar.

WATCH: Arnold Schwarzenegger's Son Joseph Baena Recreates Iconic "Terminator 2" Scene and It's Totally Badass! To kick off the new season, mogul Tyra Banks and Schwarzenegger's nephew and entertainment lawyer, Patrick M. Knapp Schwarzenegger, joined the boardroom.

After the second challenge of making a commercial about smiles for Trident gum, which the women also lost, Schwarzenegger chose to eliminate singer Carnie Wilson, and threw in another of his famous movie quotes, telling her, "You're terminated".

Later, when the "Governor", as Schwarzenegger apparently prefers to be called, gave singer Carnie Wilson her walking papers, he told her, "Hasta la vista, baby", effectively resulting in anybody playing the "Celebrity Apprentice" drinking game at home to take a shot and James Cameron's phone getting a Venmo notification.
