Dee Snider from "The Celebrity Apprentice 2012" is one of the celebrity contestants in Season 5 of the NBC reality competition series. He previously starred in A&E's reality docu-series "Growing Up Twisted" that is about him and his wife, Suzette Snider, and their children: Jesse Blaze Snider, Shane Snider, Cody Snider and Cheyenne Snider.

While perhaps best known as the lead singer of '80s sensation Twisted Sister, there is so much more to Dee Snider. He has starred in several reality TV shows

including "Gone Country" with John Rich, MTV's "Rock the Cradle" with his son Jesse and "Growing Up Twisted," an A&E series featuring the entire Snider family and their Long Island lifestyle. He is also a frequent host on MTV Networks, and his own nationally syndicated radio show "House of Hair" is heard on more than 200 stations in North America. His career as a voice-over artist has resulted in Snider being heard in many radio and TV commercials, documentaries and a year-long stint as the introductory voice on MSNBC.

Never setting limits, Snider wrote, produced and starred in "Dee Snider's StrangeLand." This horror flick immediately became a classic of the genre, and "StrangeLand 2" is currently in development. With the success of "StrangeLand," Snider was tapped to host a weekly radio show on all things horror, "Fangoria Radio." Snider's influence in the genre has led to a whole new generation of horror fans and producers.

In 2002, VH1 signed Snider to star as himself in their original movie production of "Warning: Parental Advisory." Co-starring Mariel Hemingway, Jason Priestley and Griffin Dunne, Snider re-created his role during the congressional record labeling hearings of the mid-1980s. Battling the Beltway wives, most notably Tipper Gore, Snider, along with Frank Zappa and John Denver, turned DC politics upside down, carrying the banner of Snider's Twisted Sister legendary anthem "We're Not Gonna Take It."

Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't going to take it either. The California Governator enlisted Snider to help rally his political troops all the way to the Governor's mansion in California. At his last political rally in Sacramento, Schwarzenegger asked Snider to lead the way in singing "We're Not Gonna Take It." California listened and the Terminator was elected Governor. Not to be outdone, the Mexican government recruited Snider as well, using the anthem in a TV campaign to gain attention on their bid to set the country on a fiscal and judicial road to recovery.

His recent starring role on Broadway in the hit musical "Rock of Ages" generated national TV appearances on "Today," "CNN's Joy Behar Show" and a legendary spot on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" where Snider guested with The Spooks and Jimmy on Snider's self-penned hit, "I Wanna Rock." The Broadway run inspired him to make a brand new record for Razor & Tie featuring some of Broadway's greatest songs in his own indomitable style. "Dee Does Broadway" is slated for an early 2012 release. His autobiography, "Shut Up and Give Me the Mic," will be released in early 2012 from Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster, right before Warner Pictures releases the Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta Jones and Russell Brand blockbuster film version of "Rock of Ages," which features two of Snider's biggest hits.

Snider lives on Long Island with his family.
