In The Apprentice Asia, 12 candidates are picked from the cream of the crop across Asia. Representing seven countries across the region, they are ambitious, driven by their thirst for success and their common desire to work for Asia's aviation tycoon, Tony Fernandes.

The series is filmed in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur and also stars Tony's advisors - Chief Executive Officer of Tune Hotels Group, Mark Lankester, and Chief Executive Officer of Expedia Asia, Kathleen Tan. They play a vital role by being on the ground, observing each team as they undertake their tasks. Their opinions influence who Tony will fire at the end of each task.

Volkswagen is providing four of its models – Beetle, Passat, Sharan and Touareg – to support and provide mobility for contestants and the show’s advisors throughout the 11 episodes.
