The Stakes are Raised, Ben Askren Joins Episode 6 of ‘The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition’


In all aspects, it appears that the “toughest” Apprentice in history is building up to an epic second half. And the stakes continue to rise exponentially.

In Episode 6 of “The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition” that airs on AXN tonight, 22 April, ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong revealed that the winner of the show will not only receive a US $250,000 job offer to work as his business protégé, he will also be named ONE’s Chief of Staff.

Former ONE Welterweight World Champion Ben “Funky” Askren returns to Singapore to stand alongside reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera to quiz candidates through a spin-the-wheel trivia game.

Askren is one of the most dominant world champions in ONE Championship history. A former US Olympian, Askren defended his ONE World Title four times during his time in the Circle from 2014 to 2017, dominating his opponents with his world-class wrestling skills, an incredible top game, and a “funky” fighting style unique to the ultra-talented American.

Also making an appearance as Guest Judge is Sudhir Agarwal, CEO of Singapore-based global customer experience company Everise, who sat beside Sityodtong and his Adviser, Niharika Singh, in the boardroom to grill the teams on their pitches.

How did the candidates fare in the challenges? Catch the action tonight on AXN at 8:50 p.m. and on Monday, April 26, on One Sports at 9 p.m.

The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition is showing across Asia on AXN, the show’s official Asian broadcast partner, with markets to include Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Vietnam.

The first season of “The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition” consists of 13 episodes and will be seen in the Philippines on Thursdays, 8:50 pm on AXN cable network and on Mondays at 9 p.m. on One Sport.
