12 of 22: Dee Snider, lead singer of 1980s heavy metal group Twisted Sister, is one of the 2012 contestants of Donald Trump's reality show 'The Celebrity Apprentice.'

In August 2010, Snider had an Ohio town named Cridersville renamed 'Snidersville' for a day, in honor of the singer's accomplishments and fame. Snider requested the change as a joke following a call from a resident on his syndicated radio show.

Snider is no stranger to reality TV. He appeared with his family in their reality show 'Growing Up Twisted' in 2010, in which he said he is the 'quiet one' at home. He also appears on ABC's 'Celebrity Wife Swap' in a winter 2012 episode.
