If they make decisions that impress Branson, they will continue. But each week, one candidate will be left behind on the tarmac as the rest of the group jets off to the next adventure. -FOX press release Episodes started to air in November 2004. The contestants competed to become work alongside Branson for three months as Branson worked as president of Branson's Virgin Co. and also to win a million dollars.
