Filipino-American Brandon Vera is nothing but excited to be part of “The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition” as guest athlete.

No less than ONE CEO Chatri Sityodtong on Wednesday announced the list of guest stars from ONE Championship joining the reality show.

Aside from Vera, Flyweight World Grand Prix Champion Demetrious Johnson, Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee, Women’s Strawweight Champion Xiong Jing Nan, Sage Northcutt and Ritu Phogat are set to participate in physical challenges prepared in the show.

One athlete per episode will be featured and is expected to showcase athletic ability and cardio endurance.

“Our athletes at ONE Championship are the backbone of our organization. They are real-life, modern day heroes who inspire the world with their incredible stories,” Sityodtong said in a statement.

“Their discipline and wisdom will inspire and mentor our contestants. It is my honor to star alongside these amazing human beings on the show.”

Vera, for his part, is honored to be selected as guest star for the show.

“With Chatri leading the series, I know it’s going to be amazing. I’ve been dreaming of the possibilities and the many things I can learn from this experience,” the ONE Heavyweight World Champion said.

“I’m really excited to be a part of the show and help in any way I can, especially in the physical endurance challenges. I get to go from the gym to the boardroom war tables, let’s make it happen!”

In The Apprentice, 16 contestants are set to battle out in a series of challenges, be it business or physical.

Twelve CEOs will serve as guest judges to help name the winner, who gets the chance for a $250,000 job offer to work directly under Sityodtong and serve as his protégé in Singapore.
