Reality TV has hired Donald Trump -- again.

Variety reports that The Donald has just inked a deal with the Golf Channel for a new unscripted reality show titled 'Donald J. Trump's Fabulous World of Golf' (yep).

Trump, who owns many golf courses in such places as Westchester, New York, Washington D.C., Los Angeles and Puerto Rico, is rounding up a host of celebrities to compete one-on-one for charities. Already on board to play a few holes are NFL legends Jerry Rice and Lawrence Taylor, with more athletes, musicians, actors and business-types reportedly to come.

The series will debut on April 26, 2010, with an initial order of six half-hour episodes.Reality TV has hired Donald Trump -- again.

This will mark a hefty dose of Trump for this coming Spring. In addition to 'Fabulous,' Trump will return on March 14, 2010 with another addition of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' and will also appear on the Omarosa dating show, 'Omarosa's Ultimate Merger.'

Who else should join the show? Based on Trump's affinity for C-list celebrities (hello, cast of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' season 3!), here's a few match-ups we'd love to see.

Kathy Griffin vs. Shaq
The D-List star takes on a golf club-swinging Shaq. This could only be a recipe for amazing.

Daryl Hall vs. John Oates
Let's see who Sara Smiles for at the 18th green.

Tiger Woods vs. His Harem of Women
Probably a long shot, but this is clearly one way to boost golf's ratings.

Lil Wayne vs. Betty White
You know ... just because.

That Mom From the AT&T Commercials vs. That Guy From the Verizon Commercials
It's all about synergy in Trump's world, and that Verizon guy needs to be knocked down a few pegs, anyways.
