Last week’s episode of The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition took the excitement and drama up a notch as martial arts legends Georges St-Pierre and Renzo Gracie guest-starred, participating in a physical challenge that literally left them hanging on the edge.
The episode airs across Asia on AXN, the show’s official Asia broadcast partner, as well as on other local free-to-air platforms.
This week on episode 3, fans will witness reigning ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee grace their television screens. While Lee will not be participating in the episode’s physical challenge, she will be on hand to support the candidates as they battle it out in another grueling task.
The episode was filmed in late 2020. Lee is currently 38 weeks pregnant and is due soon. She is now back home in Hawaii awaiting the birth of her first child with her husband, fellow ONE athlete Bruno Pucci.
Lee is one of the best female mixed martial arts athletes in the world. She captured the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship in 2016, and has remained the champion since. She is expected to defend her title against her division’s no. 1-ranked contender later this year.
As an Asian-American, Lee has also spoken out on the recent string of racially influenced hate crimes towards Asian people in the United States.
“As an Asian American/Canadian, with parents from Singapore and Korea, it deeply saddens and disturbs me that there has been a massive rise in attacks against the Asian community,” Lee wrote in an Instagram post.
“My heart goes out to the victims and families impacted by the shootings in Atlanta and the many other hate crimes that have been ongoing. Please, take a moment to do some research…We must speak up. We must defend ourselves. This is not okay. Let’s stand together and stand up for our Asian community.”
