The second season of ONE Championship’s version of The Apprentice will begin production in 2023.
The show will start in Singapore and Qatar with special guest athletes and judges joining.
In partnership with Singapore Tourism Board and Media City Qatar, Season 2 will feature various locations across Singapore and Qatar. The shoots will be directed by Refinery Media and Executive Producer Karen Seah, who led the production of the award-winning first season.
ONE also confirmed its first group of guest judges in Nas Academy CEO Nuseir Yassin (who will feature in Doha) and DragonX Capital Managing Partner Dan Lok, as well as its first group of guest athletes in ONE heavyweight Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida, ONE lightweight Sage Northcutt, and former MMA World Champion Miesha Tate.
A ONE World Champion has also been confirmed as a Season 2 contestant and will vie for the grand prize of a one-year, US$250,000 job offer to work directly under Sityodtong at ONE’s headquarters in Singapore. The identity of this contestant and other cast members will be revealed at a later date.
Hua Fung Teh, Group President of ONE Championship, said: “Coming off the success of ‘The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition’ Season 1, we’re thrilled to announce that Season 2 will begin production in Q1 of next year. We can’t wait to welcome the new crop of contestants, who will compete for the opportunity to work directly under Chatri as we continue to grow the ONE Championship brand all over the world.”
