A ONE Championship title holder will be looking to follow in the footsteps of Jessica Ramella (pictured) by winning Season 2 of The Apprentice. One of the promotion’s champions, either past or present, will be part of the cast.

The identity of the champion has not been released but with filming set to get underway in early 2023 we won’t have to wait too long to find out who it is. Ramella is currently serving as chief of staff at ONE Championship and the winner of the second season will be offered a similar role by Chatri Sityodtong.

Open to applicants

The second season will be filmed in Qatar and Singapore. The cast has not been finalized with applications for contestants to remain open until December 15th.

The Apprentice helped to make Donald Trump a household name. At the time he was a real estate magnate but since fronting the reality TV show he has gone on to become president of the United States.

Season 1 of the ONE Championship edition is currently available on both Amazon Prime and Netflix. Among the judges for Season 2 is Nas Academy CEO Nuseir Yassin who, like Chatri, is a Harvard graduate.

Opening up

Season 1 of The Apprentice was filmed in Singapore during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. The second season will have a more international feel with contestants able to travel freely between different countries.

Earlier this year ONE Championship and Media City Qatar signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a view to working together on future projects. The World Cup is currently underway in the country and Sheikh Ali bin Abdullah bin Khalifa Al-Thani, CEO of Media City Qatar, said,

“We’re delighted to partner with ONE Championship and I’m confident ‘The Apprentice’ will be a hugely successful platform that will showcase the beauty of Qatar to global audiences.”

Meanwhile Hua Fung Teh, Group President of ONE Championship, is excited to see the company making another foray into the world of reality television as well as expanding its digital footprint in the Middle East,

“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.”
