13 Contestants Compete for a Media Mogul�s Admiration I Wanna Work For Diddy: A True Labor of Love

P. Diddy began his career in the music industry as a concert promoter during the late 80s while still attending Howard University in Washington, D.C. Though he did not complete his studies, he did move back to New York, where his experience landed him a job at Uptown Records. There he would produce artists such as Mary J. Blige and discover a young Christopher Wallace, better known to the public as the Notorious B.I.G.

P. Diddy began his career in the music industry as a concert promoter during the late 80s while still attending Howard University in Washington, D.C. Though he did not complete his studies, he did move back to New York, where his experience landed him a job at Uptown Records. There he would produce artists such as Mary J. Blige and discover a young Christopher Wallace, better known to the public as the Notorious B.I.G.

Eager to break out on his own Diddy left Uptown, and formed his highly lucrative Bad Boy label. Fifteen years later he has amassed millions, and launched countless artists� careers. Not satisfied with music alone, Diddy would create his own clothing line, restaurant, and even cologne. Nothing seems out of reach for this former Harlemite, even in the social realm, having at one time dated the beautiful Jennifer Lopez.

So it is no wonder that many desperate individuals would do anything to get a taste of his lavish lifestyle. In Diddy�s previous forays into reality television, specifically MTV�s Making the Band, contestants not only had to display their vocal prowess, but also their dedication to Bad Boy�s CEO � even if it meant retrieving a cheesecake for him at 3 in the morning.

I Want to Work for Diddy is no different, though in this case contestants are not fighting for a record contract, but the mere opportunity to be Diddy�s personal assistant. Similarly, the contestants must complete outrageous tasks to prove their worthiness. Early in the competition would-be assistants are transported by helicopter to a remote army base, and ordered to find their way back to Bad Boy�s New York City headquarters. Their next task includes an impromptu trip to Paris, where the guys and gals will attempt to track down an anonymous model featured in a magazine.

Despite participants� zeal, only one can win the honor of being Diddy�s personal assistant. Which of these lucky cast members will make the seemingly impossible cut? Watch and see!
