The show started last 09 February and I already missed its first five episodes and probably will have to watch them on youtube or something. But as the cliche goes, “better late than never.” Just like being hooked to the AMAZING RACE and the AMAZING RACE ASIA, I think I’ll watch this show weekly from now on over AXN after catching their 6th episode replay this morning. This is about the DUKE, AXN’s men’s magazine show aired every Monday 8PM and with replays on Sundays 9AM also on AXN.
Their first six episodes are :
Episode 1 : Women, can we live without them?
Episode 2 : Metrosexuality
Episode 3 : Secret Fantasies
Episode 4 : The Age of Women in Power
Episode 5 : 30 is the new 20
Episode 6 : Can Money Buy Love?
Taking from their last episode, I think the show isn’t only entertaining but also informative. It showcases interesting features about lifestyle, travel and perhaps anything under the sun or making it specifically under the Asian sun.

I google AXN’s and other sites that featured the DUKE
And I quote : “The latest AXN original production is THE DUKE, a glossy men’s magazine talk show that will appeal to the modern sensibilities, tastes, upscale lifestyles and intellect of professionals and businessmen.
THE DUKE is set to make waves across Asia as it explores topics like politics, finance, sex, wellness, and also about the finer things in life in a smart, sophisticated and stylish manner. Featuring exclusive interviews with international celebrities and popular figures at vibrant destinations in Asia, THE DUKE will make men all over Asia sit up and get inspired to take charge of their lives.
THE DUKE is, as its name suggests, about men that stand a class above the rest. Our definition of ‘The Duke’ is a man very much in control of his life. For a true Duke, age and wealth are not determining factors in ensuring success but the desire, the drive and the dream are key to his accomplishment.
The guides for this tour-de-force are celebrity hosts, Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez, formerly the pin-up boys of The Amazing Race Asia’s second season. Gaining major mileage and popularity around Asia from the Race, these alpha males are indisputably one of the boys with their charming and cheeky humour and hands on sports savvy, besides being smouldering, seasoned ladies’ men.
Singapore personality Eunice Olsen bravely joins the alpha-male duo as the only female host on this men’s magazine show. The winner of Miss Singapore-Universe in 2000, Eunice is also the youngest Nominated Member of Parliament in Singapore and has hosted shows covering the arts and women’s issues. It’s without a doubt that she will add a delicious dimension with her intelligent and feminine perspectives!”
