James Sun (Hangul선우신; born in Seoul) in 1981 and is an entrepreneur, television host, and public speaker. He is the CEO and Founder of Pirq.com, which was acquired by iPayment, Inc. He was the host of a BBC television program called "Sun Tzu War on Business".

Sun was the first Asian male to land a spot on Donald Trump's reality show "The Apprentice.".[citation needed]

He was chosen to be the host of "Celebrate Asia" with the Seattle Symphony on January 14, 2011, and opened the event as the Master of Ceremonies.[2]

The Apprentice[edit]

Sun was one of the four finalists going into the finale of season 6 of The Apprentice, Donald Trump's business reality show. He and Stefani Schaeffer survived the first elimination, but Trump ultimately chose Stefani as his next apprentice.[3] On his blog following the firing, Sun stated that he was "dumbfounded" and confused as to what exactly the "things" Trump mentioned were, although he speculated that it might have been his decision to use the program to plug his Internet company.[4][5][6]
