DESCRIPTION: (from FOX's press release) 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 this new elimination-style competition and unscripted drama series from Bunim-Murray Productions ("The Simple Life," "Real World"). A self-made billionaire known for risk-taking, both personally and professionally, Branson whisks these participants to international destinations to relive some of his personal experiences, tackling the types of dilemmas and life-or-death challenges that help shape future billionaires. If they 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 two-hour opener, Branson meets the original group of 16 at his country home in Oxford, England, where he gives new meaning to the term "mile-high club" as the group (including Sir Richard) must traverse between two hot-air balloons traveling 3,000 feet above the countryside. In the next challenge, the remaining participants travel to Hong Kong to introduce a new in-flight service on Virgin Atlantic's Upper Class and then learn the sky's the limit when they "wing-walk" on biplanes, passing batons back and forth as the planes are in flight high above the countryside. THE REBEL BILLIONAIRE: BRANSON'S QUEST FOR THE BEST premieres Tuesday, Nov. 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
