ONE Championship to launch own version of 'The Apprentice' in Asia
MANILA, Philippines—ONE Championship is launching its own edition of The Apprentice hosted by its CEO Chatri Sityodtong which will air across the Pan Asian region.
The new edition of “The Apprentice” will feature 16 handpicked contestants from around the globe pitting them in business competitions and physical challenges with the winner receiving a USD 250,000 job offer to work directly under Sityodtong as his protégé at ONE Championship Global Headquarters in Singapore.
Apart from Sityodtong, there will also be 12 top CEOs (one per episode) from across Asia who will be the ONE chairman’s guest judge across the show.
With the business CEOs handling the judging in the entrepreneurial aspect, ONE World champions will be the adjudicators in the physical challenges.
“This brand new concept brings a completely unique and original dimension to ‘The Apprentice’ with the high-stakes drama of real-life business competitions, coupled with herculean physical challenges featuring some of Asia’s top CEOs, the world’s greatest martial arts World champions, and A-list celebrities from across the continent.”
ONE Studios, the MMA promotion’s production arm, will produce the show that will run on both streaming and linear platforms in the second half of 2020.
