[via press release from FOX]
"THE REBEL BILLIONAIRE: BRANSON'S QUEST FOR THE BEST" TO ENCORE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, ON FOX
Viewers will have another chance to catch the high-flying adventure on THE REBEL BILLIONAIRE: BRANSON'S QUEST FOR THE BEST when a condensed version of the series premiere encores Friday, Nov. 12 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
In this innovative unscripted series, Sir Richard Branson, the colorful founder and Chairman of the Virgin Group of Companies, leads a group of 16 entrepreneurs on an epic journey around the world in an elimination-style competition that combines business challenges with daring physical feats. Branson whisks the participants to international destinations to relive some of his personal experiences, tackling the types of dilemmas and life-or-death challenges that he believes help to shape future billionaires. If the participants succeed, they will continue onward. If not, each week, they could find themselves left behind on the tarmac as the rest of the group jets off to the next adventure.
In the episode encoring Nov. 12, viewers will get an extended recap of the hot air balloon challenge and first eliminations. Then the remaining participants travel to Hong Kong to develop a new in-flight feature for Virgin Atlantic Airways' Upper Class. Later, two members of the losing team learn the sky's the limit when they "wing-walk" on biplanes, attempting to pass a baton as the planes are in flight high above the English countryside.
Original episodes of THE REBEL BILLIONAIRE: BRANSON'S QUEST FOR THE BEST will air in the series' regular time period beginning Tuesday, Nov. 16 (8:00�9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: A Friday encore of THE REBEL BILLIONAIRE is scheduled for this week only.)
