The Ultimate BROcation Featuring Chef Bjorn Shen
There are days in a man’s life, when he just wants to lay low, hang with his bros and go on a crazy, wild adventure – away from the girlfriend, the wife or the family. Well, starting tonight, action entertainment channel KIX is debuting its brand-new reality show, The Ultimate BROcation, to give viewers a glimpse of that male fantasy!
It should be very interesting to see Singapore’s own maverick chef, Bjorn Shen in this five-episode reality series following four famous Southeast Asian celebrities who meet for the first time in an unforgettable, testosterone-fueled vacation in Hong Kong.
Joining Bjorn on the “brocation” are award-winning Malaysian hip hop artist SonaOne, Thailand’s “bad boy” DJ and TV host P.K., and the Philippines’ R&B sensation Billy Crawford. The funny thing is - it's not traditional bros as in friends you already know, but new friends you make when you put guys together in close quarters for a period of time.
Bringing these four strangers together is Hong Kong martial arts movie star Philip Ng, who has invited them to join him on an all-expenses-paid trip full of authentic, tailor-made experiences offering the best of his hometown.
"We are very excited to work with Hong Kong Tourism Board and Endemol Shine Group to create this KIX original production. The Ultimate BROcation is a fun-filled ride that guys will relate to and ladies will laugh at! The show captures how four guys who don’t know each other can bond over shared experiences in a foreign land. I think our viewers will really enjoy the bro-bantering between Bjorn, SonaOne, P.K. and Billy. Their antics on this ‘brocation’ are truly hilarious.” said Andy Chang, Senior Vice President of Advertising Sales, Marketing and Original Productions, Celestial Tiger Entertainment.
Mr. Simon Wong, Regional Director, Hong Kong Tourism Board, Southeast Asia, shared, “We are glad to work with KIX and Endemol Shine Group on the production of The Ultimate BROcation and now we are excited about the airing of the series. We believe that the bros’ unforgettable fun times in Hong Kong will inspire the audience to experience for themselves the best and most authentic shopping, eating and playing options Hong Kong has to offer.”
“My first thought when I heard about going on BROcation with three other strangers was if these guys were gonna be total freaks! Chemistry is an obvious deal breaker for any kind of trip and I definitely didn’t want to be around someone who’d be a total buzzkill. I’m glad to say that Billy, P.K. and SonaOne were the best choices for this BROcation – these guys were down for anything and even encouraged my antics. Even though filming is over, we all want a reunion just so we can hang out with each other again,” said Bjorn Shen.
In the series, Bjorn will see, feel and taste the best Hong Kong has to offer alongside the other bros. From tasting sampling some authentic Hong Kong dishes to wine-tasting on a tram, from to fly boarding on the south side of the island to racing up to the Peak, it was certainly a trip to remember.
So did bromance develop or did their egos get in the way? Find out what Bjorn and the rest of the celebrity dudes are really like, when they leave their girlfriends and wives at home and go on the “brocation” of a lifetime. So mark your calendars for the premiere of The Ultimate BROcation on December 14 at 9PM only on KIX (Singtel TV Ch 309 and Starhub Ch 518).
The Ultimate BROcation is produced by the top-rated action entertainment channel KIX and Endemol Shine Group, the global production house behind such popular and award-winning shows as MasterChef and Big Brother. The show is supported by Hong Kong Tourism Board, and co-sponsored by DJI, Cathay Pacific and the Harbour Grand Hong Kong.
