The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition will be available on Netflix from Feb 1. 

Unlike all the other seasons of The Apprentice so far, this edition features 16 candidates from 11 countries, including Singapore, who compete in both physical challenges and business tasks, led by World Champion athletes and top CEOs.

The grueling physical tasks are led by some of the top martial artists in the world, including Georges St-Pierre and Renzo Gracie.

On the business side, leading global CEOs like Anthony Tan from Grab, Eric Yuan from Zoom, and Jeff Lawson from Twilio will also be there to challenge the candidates’ intellect and business decisions.

The Apprentice is one of the biggest non-scripted reality television programs in history, judging the business skills of candidates who are competing for a job offer under a high-profile CEO.

In the ONE Championship edition, the previous seasons’ format has been tweaked to test candidates’ strength, character and determination even further. 

The show is hosted by Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, the largest global sports media property in Asian history. The winner of this series will receive a US$250,000 job offer to work as Sityodtong’s apprentice for a year in Singapore.

Previously released in Asia in March last year, the series was well-received by audiences and won two major awards at the Asian Academy Creative Awards 2021. After the Netflix release, it will be available in 150 countries. 

“On behalf of ONE Championship, I am truly honoured for all the support we have received for the show, and I’m excited to premiere the series to a broader audience,” said Mr Sityodtong.
