I Want To Work for Diddy is a reality competition show that pits a lot of contestants against each other as they compete for a prestigious job working for Sean Combs, a.k.a. Diddy. Diddy is an incredibly successful rapper, producer, and entrepreneur who is famous for leading a lavish lifestyle. Each episode of the show focuses on the contestants trying to complete a special project or challenge. The contestant that does the worst on the project is eliminated. The contestants are all tested on various skills that they will need to work as Diddy's personal assistant. One episode is devoted to seeing how good the contestants are at multi-tasking. Another challenge is for them to create a print ad. They even have to cast and hire a model for the print ad before they can even begin to shoot it. The contestants aren't just limited to helping Diddy. They must also learn to be on-call for when his family needs help. The contestants also have to organize showcases for talent booked by Diddy. The contestants are eliminated when they fail to distinguish themselves in the challenges, but sometimes Diddy fires them for other reasons. One contestant, Kim, is fired for mouthing off at Diddy. The other contestants learn that an amiable personality is paramount to succeeding in Diddy's world. The contestants are forced to work in teams for many of the challenges but they often spar and attack each other. When a team fails, the contestants usually try and point the fingers at each other. Elimination is decided by a panel of judges who all work for Diddy in some capacity so they know precisely what he is looking for. The judges include Kevin Liles, a well-known record producer who has worked for Diddy's Bad Boy label for many years. Even though there is only one winner of the competition, Diddy is willing to hire any contestant that performs flawlessly. There is always room in Diddy's empire for superb talent.
