The 11-week competition that pitted 12 contestants from different parts of Asia will culminate tonight, July 31, 2013. The winner will get a grand prize of a one-year contract with a salary of at least $100,000 under the tutelage of Tony Fernandes, Group Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia.
The battle is between Jonathan Allen Yabut, a Filipino senior product manager in the pharmaceutical industry versus Singapore's Andrea Loh Ern-Yu, a civil-and-commercial litigation lawyer.
In Part 1 of the finale, the task at hand was to organise a charity black tie fundraiser for the AirAsia Foundation, with a cocktail event, charity auction and a Muay Thai demonstration. Six eliminated contestants were available to assist Jonathan and Andrea in the task. The choice of contestants was done by alternate selection. Jonathan won the coin toss and the right to choose team members first. He picked Sam Nallaraj from India, Nash Idrus from Malaysia, and Filipina Celina Le Neindre. Andrea picked India’s Ningku Lachungpa, China’s Alexis Bauduin, and Indonesia’s Dian Mukti.
