The Apprentice Wraps Up Production!
And it’s a wrap! The first season of The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition has finally completed production! After a gruelling 13 weeks of juggling long production days alongside my day job as CEO of ONE Championship, I am thrilled to have my life return back to normalcy. Never in a million years would I have ever imagined that I would be starring on a global TV show, let alone a reality TV show. I am super pumped for it because it is something I have never done. I love new challenges and new adventures. Bar none, this edition of The Apprentice is the toughest in history. 16 contestants from around the world compete in a high-stakes game of challenges designed to test their limits physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The winner receives a US$250,000 job offer and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work directly for me in Singapore. Get ready for the world’s toughest edition of The Apprentice in history! March 2021!
