The single most awaited moment of 2017, the reveal of Arnold Schwarzenegger's New Celebrity Apprentice catchphrase, has come to pass. "You're terminated," says the action star, former California governor and one-time Mr. Universe, quoting one of his famous '80s films before tacking on a line from another: "Get to the chopper."

The Terminator/Predator catchphrase fusion was kept under wraps until the season premiere on Monday night. "We narrowed it down to, like, eight of my sayings from the movies and one other option, but even I don't know yet," Schwarzenegger told The Hollywood Reporter last month.

Last week, Jersey Shore alum Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi told Fuse that The New Celebrity Apprentice is "totally different" from Donald Trump's version, and that Schwarzenegger was "like the Terminator in the boardroom," which she found "terrifying." Watch that conversation here:
