‘Million Baht Babes’ is the latest reality television series venture produced by Lenscap Asia (www.lenscapasia.com). It will be aired by ESPN Asia, and by major broadcasters in Thailand, the UK, Germany and Australia throughout 2013.
The series was filmed entirely on location on the island of Koh Samui, at the Lamai Muay Thai Gym and Fitness Centre. Featuring three Western women from the UK, Germany and Australia, the premise of the show is that they have agreed to be subjected to the toughest Muaythai training program they can handle, in a bid to transform them from total Muaythai novices to competent fighters in just six weeks. Their ultimate goal is to be fit enough and good enough to go the distance and win a professional fight in the ring with a fighter matched against them.
The final fight happened on the evening of the King’s Birthday, during the special Muaythai celebration organised on the island for the event. The results are still top secret…did Sammy, Rachel and Micky make it into the ring? Did last minute nerves undo any of the women? Who won and who lost their fights? Tune in during 2013 to watch the show and find out who became the Million Baht Babe!
Sammy, Rachel and Micky can now be followed in the following social media:
