The candidates were grouped into two teams by ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong, placing Sangalang in Team Valor and Alvarez in Team Conquest.

The inaugural episode that was shown to audiences in Southeast Asia, China, and India showed Filipino MMA champion Louie Sangalang leading his Team Valor to victory in the Relay Challenge. The team also won the Business Challenge and emerged as the overall winners in the inaugural round.

Filipina mixed martial artist warrior Lara Alvarez was meanwhile seen in danger of being eliminated from the show after her team lost both challenges but was saved from an early exit after the round was declared a non-elimination challenge.

Sixteen global candidates are vying for the top prize in the toughest The Apprentice.

The candidates are competing for a one-year, US$250,000 job offer to work directly under Chatri as his protege at ONE Championship.
