The Filipinos are battling to be the first Apprentice Asia grand winner and we need to support them by voting #aacelina and #aajon at www.axn-asia.com. Not one but two Filipinos, Celina Le Neindre and Jonathan Yabut are Filipinos who joined the first Apprentice Asia shown on AXN Philippines. During the first bloggers night held at Papa John's Pizza Restaurant Tomas Morato branch in Quezon City, Apprentice Asia's Filipino contestants Celina Le Neindre and Jonathan Yabut shared their excitement over the next episodes soon to finish and announce who'll grab the 100,000 US$ grand prize and be the next apprentice of Air Asia's President Tony Fernandes by the same creators of the reality show, Survivor, Mark Burnett Productions.
Just like any reality shows Apprentice Asia is a show about 12 contestants applying to be the Apprentice of Tony Fernandes, the Malaysian Indian entrepreneur of Air Asia joined by Mark Lankester, CEO of Tune Hotels Group and Kathleen Tan, CEO of Expedia Asia in handling the "world's toughest job interview". Contestants were given tasks in marketing and product development selecting the best apprentice. Divided in Team Apex and Team Mavericks, the two Pinoys were in different teams performing tasks to gain advantage being hired. When asked what the two learned after the experience, Jonathan shared his delightful memorable learning completing a task on analyzing stock markets. Celina, on the other hand shared how important it is to study body language and attitudes to gain influence in marketing.
Jonathan was a senior product manager and Celina was a Food and Beverage consultant before they got in the show. Aired on AXN-Asia every Wednesday, the Apprentice Asia also gives interesting ideas for business and marketing enthusiasts to explore how cultures and tasks make up the best apprentice. I was honored to have met the first two Pinoys who'll definitely be the springboard of those aspiring to be on the show in the next season. Will Celina survive and be hired as the first Apprentice Asia or will Jonathan be spared despite his losing streak at episode 6?
