The Intern Reality TV Show

Posted by Luminus on February 21, 2006

Some smart alecks from Surich Media House have a launched a Reality TV show called the Intern much in the mold of Donal Trump‘s The Apprentice and Sir Richard Branson‘s The Rebel Billionaire.

The INTERN TV reality show is a concept that seeks to discover, develop and groom young Nigerians interested in professional careers in the corporate sector.

To assure quality of contestants on the show, 10 applicants short listed through a diligent process of selection by Phillips Consulting, go through an intellectually demanding executive training course at the Lagos Business School.

After their training at the Lagos Business School, THE INTERNS are grouped into two teams and assigned tasks. The teams will be given tasks such as; formulating and executing business tasks and strategies for a select group of blue chip Nigerian companies.

As each week ends, two Interns with the lowest performance appraisal index (PAI) will be eliminated by votes from the judges and TV audience via SMS.

The successful intern will win a cash prize of N3m, a Brand New KIA RIO 2006 model and automatic employment with a Nigerian Company.

The first and second runner up takes home One Million Naira (N1,000, 000.00) and Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (N750,000.00) respectively as well as securing automatic employment.

However all participant on THE INTERN are winners because when an intern is fired he/she is given the cash equivalent of the points earned while on the show. Besides the cash reward, the fired intern goes home with a certificate from the Lagos Business School, a brand new Omatek Laptop, a CDMA mobile phone from multi-links and an executive wardrobe.
