"I WANT TO WORK FOR DIDDY 2" PREMIERES MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2 AT 10 PM ET/PT

Catch a Sneak Peek of The First Episode On VH1.com Beginning Monday, October 26

NEW YORK, Oct. 16 -- In the midst of a giant recession, at least one person's still hiring--Sean "Diddy" Combs. VH1's "I Want to Work for Diddy" is back for its second season, and Diddy is again on the hunt for the one assistant able to meet his super-high standards. A batch of 11 new hopefuls will be granted the opportunity to battle it out for one of entertainment's toughest jobs. "I Want to Work For Diddy 2" premieres Monday, November 2 at 10 PM ET/PT.

After an exhaustive nationwide search, VH1 found 11 determined young men and women with the raw potential to flourish under the wing of one of the world's most demanding CEOs. Each one-hour episode showcases a range of challenges, many based on the real life experiences of Diddy's previous assistants.

"Last season I was hands off and left it to the judges," says Diddy. "This season I'm taking a foot in ass, all over your brain approach to finding this assistant."

The applicants must do their best to impress not only Diddy but an intimidating panel of judges. Back from Season 1 are: Bad Boy executive Phil Robinson, Diddy's ultimate henchman, and former Diddy assistant Capricorn Clark, now global brand director for Sean "Diddy" Combs.

This season they will be joined by Diddy's mentor, the renowned business entrepreneur Andre Harrell, founder and president of Uptown Records. Throughout the season, Diddy will share his business acumen with viewers by setting up a series of challenges that test the skills of business efficiency and perseverance.

Who will win the coveted title of Diddy's assistant? Tune in for all the tears and meltdowns as we find out. Beginning Monday, October 26, fans can catch a sneak peek of the season's first episode on VH1.com - one week before the on-air premiere. Subsequent episodes will be available on VH1.com the morning after they air. Additional video content from "I Want to Work for Diddy 2" including extras from each episode will be available on VH1.com and on VH1 Mobile throughout the season.
