The original winner of "The Apprentice" is making his way back to boardroom.

Bill Rancic has announced that although he's not a contestant on "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice," he will be a huge part of the upcoming season. The 41-year-old new dad, who just welcomed son Edward Duke with his wife, E! News correspondent Giuliana Rancic, will be assisting Donald Trump as a mentor to the cast, which includes stars like Trace Adkins, Stephen Baldwin, Gary Busey, Lisa Rinna, Omarosa, LaToya Jackson and Bret Michaels.

"It's hard to believe it was almost nine years ago that I won the first season of "The Apprentice,"" Rancic told E! News of his new gig. "Had it not been for "The Apprentice" and Donald Trump, I wouldn't have met my wife through an interview with E! News."

"It's always an honor when Mr. Trump asks me to come back to the show," he continued. "Over the years, I have been a boardroom advisor several times, but am most excited to be a part of this All-Star season. I have a strong feeling it's going to be the most entertaining celebrity season yet, and I look forward to being a part of it."

"All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" begins filming on Monday in New York City.
