In the series opener, 14 aspiring young entrepreneurs arrive in New York City to begin an intense competition as millionaire hip-hop mogul 50 Cent searches for an ambitious, hustling self-starter with street smarts to invest $100,000 of his own money in. The contestants’ first test is a 5-mile race from Roosevelt Island to Camp Curtis, their house in Brooklyn. Of course, there’s one big twist – the contestants must run chained together – chain gang style. And when tension escalates into multiple confrontations, several contestants find themselves in fear of being eliminated. In the end, 50 “drops” one player, sending them packing and ending their dream of a $100,000 investment.
