The Apprentice Asia's First Winner is Jonathan Yabut!

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Yes it's true! The first ever winner of The Apprentice Asia is Jonathan Yabut from the Philippines.

Big dreams really come from small beginnings as this executive from Glaxo Smith Kline based in Manila bested 12 other contestants from the Asian region. We were there to cover the event and saw the other hopefuls too. Andrea Loh from Singapore was also there, she was the one which he had to battle with during  the last episode. The last task was not too easy either as they had to launch the AIR ASIA FOUNDATION which caters to Asian historical entities and funds various organizations and individuals that can nurture entrepreneurship within the region. It basically cares for those who are in need. It's Mr. Fernandes' vision of giving back to the same people who helped him build his empire. It's a noble gesture imho.

During the last battle, Andrea was a little nervous and got that in the way while speaking in front of dignitaries and VIP's that were invited to an auction. Jonathan on the other hand took the upper hand right from the beginning and chose to personally talk to each and everyone ultimately connecting with the audience and made Mr. Tony Fernandes choose him as the ultimate APPRENTICE ASIA winner! :)

Congratulations Jonathan! Thank you for making the Philippines proud!
