The Apprentice Asia!!!
After four seasons of The Amazing Race Asia, AXN returns yet again with another made-in-Asia-for-Asia Original Production in May 2013 – The Apprentice Asia!
The Asian adaptation of the US reality series is based on the format created by reality TV guru Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor) and produced locally by Fremantlemedia Asia. The face of the show is aviation tycoon and Forbes Asia’s 2010 ‘Asia Businessman of the Year’, Tony Fernandes, most well-known for turning around ailing airline AirAsia and breaking even within a year of taking over. 12 candidates from around Asia will vie for the honour of becoming Asia’s very first Apprentice, with the winner walking away with the opportunity to work for Tony in one of his enterprises.
What makes the inaugural season of The Apprentice Asia so riveting is the drama that ensues from the onset. As can be expected when a group of extroverted, ambitious characters get together, strong wills clash, alliances are forged, and nerves are frayed during each boardroom session where one of them will go home, empty-handed. It’s the survival of the fittest, and self preservation rules the day.
Lets find out who or what makes Tony declare ‘a bloody disaster’ and ‘a weapon of mass destruction’, and hedge your bets on the candidate who might just end up winning The Apprentice Asia!
