The episode shot on the sidelines of the Arnold Classic Africa will be broadcast on eNCA (DStv 403) and (DStv 194) on the 29 June 2019. The broadcast times are - eNCA at 08:45 and on eTV at 13:10.

The Arnold Classic Africa takes place in Johannesburg every May and is held under the aegis of the annual Arnold Sport Festival hosted globally across six continents. The events feature professional bodybuilding and related contests, amateur bodybuilding, strength and combat sports, a large health and fitness expo and youth events that vary from continent to continent.

Host Marc Wainer says, "Arnold is a legend, he is an epitome of what one can achieve with some help. It is a matter of simply asking for it."

"Born to humble beginnings, he became a champion bodybuilder winning Mr Universe five times and then reinvented himself to become an A-list movie star, moving then into politics to be the Governor of one of the richest states in the US, California, twice. The state’s economy rivals the United Kingdom’s, and if it were a country, it would be ranked 5th in the biggest economies."

Now in its second season, The Mentorship Challenge is a weekly television show that unpacks the notion of social upliftment through mentorship. The programme provides an enabling platform for top business leaders in the country to create a legacy through shaping the journeys of the budding business trailblazers of tomorrow.

"We are extremely thrilled to have someone of Arnold’s stature on the show who openly and single-handedly has bust the myth of a self-made man. It is our hope that viewers are not only entertained by Arnold but also inspired by his success. That said, it is also a clarion call for all business leaders to recognise the potential of all South Africans," says Wainer.
