As for the rest - a few jokes here and there, and some banter about why he became a DOTA pro and pro-gaming as a career choice. Mostly standard Chinese dating show fluff. Xiao8 doesn't really say anything too interesting beyond that comment in the video description. I feel like the whole thing started to feel far too scripted toward the end, but it's still worth a watch. Hopefully someone will come in and do the full translation! Yeah, what a bitch. Says he is the most attractive man in the world. Then turns him down on national television.
She said its because she doesn't feel that he could love her, dedicate himself to her, and that the gap between her being a fan and him being this famous gamer is too large.
Not to mention he doesn't make too much of a case for himself. She makes a lot of assumptions that can really be turned around. Like she was saying things like "If I leave here with you, I want to be with you forever, can you do that?
Like what the fuck? Who decides to get married after a few minutes on a game show. I don't think it makes her a bitch for turning the guy down.
In comparison to western progamer salaries, and western costs of living vs china And also taking into account I am pretty sure he lives in a team house, so rent and also probably food is covered by his team I would say it is pretty great. You have to think long-term.
At that age money doesn't really matter as much, anyway. Get out of your bubble son. Done until the 10minute mark, will continue after I get up tomorrow. Only in this way, she would choose him, if he will stop the game, and in her father's business in the CEO of a large company, but he said no, because he is such an ambitious game DOTA! Her father big CEO of company! No want Dota player get his daughter.
Make offer he will turn down.
Fuck, I'm a pussy, this is way too much. They splur all this useless chatter in between the important stuff and my OCD requires me to sub it as well. Here's what I have so far: I believe the program he's using is called Aegisub.
It's what a lot of anime fan translation projects use. I'll do it and put it up on the Dotaland Youtube if no one's done a proper, quality subtitled version by next week I think hilarious is an understatement, but xiao8 was way too pussy, the chick said she needed a stronger commitment from xiao8 and all he said was "Yeah I do", dafaq. My Chinese is at the level where I kind of know what they're talking about , but I don't understand all the words they're saying and miss a lot of the jokes. It just seems awkward for me: The women at the start were a bit of an ass though They were dissing him based on the clothes he wore.
But who on earth would've known that there'd be a fangirl present - For all those who don't understand the video, the girl at 3: Apparently the chick is a regular on this dating show. She is also a LGD fan. Xiao8 came on the show specifically to woo her. Somehow, I get the feeling that the producers planned that Good for him anyway. Well the others did seem to become genuinely impressed after the first video highlighting his achievements and how he balances a gaming career with college studies.
Guess having someone amongst them with that kind of admiration gives it a little more credence: If you follow xiao8 weibo twitter , one of the caster twitted him "LGD. Xiao8 has left the game", the xiao8 replied "Nevermind, is a BO3". State media editorialized against the show on television, in print, and online. From that point forward, Fei Cheng Wu Rao was to curb mentions of financial wealth and sex, and a third host was added: Also omitted is the 'final opinions' on a departing male contestant from the women; previously this part of the show was especially prone to pointed insults and ridicule.
Moreover, the original reel of the show must undergo heavy editing before airing depending on length and number of contestants present. In January , as a result of a Chinese judge ruling that the show's name "Fei Cheng Wu Rao" infringed another individual's copyright who owned the same name as the show, the producers temporarily changed the name of the show to "Yuan Lai Fei Cheng Wu Rao" although the English name seems to have stayed the same.
Between November 19 to December 10, , a series of specials titled "1vs24" was aired where the roles of the genders were reversed with 24 Males taking to the podiums to face a single woman.
The gameplay of the special episodes was the same as the normal episodes. On December 31, , the Guangdong High Court overturned the decision on appeal by ruling that "Fei Cheng Wu Rao" did not infringe on another individual's copyrights and therefore the producers changed the name of the show back to "Fei Cheng Wu Rao" .
37 Times a Chinese Dating Show Got Too Real
On April 1, Jiangsu Television announced that the final episode of If You Are The One in the original format had aired on March 25 with the filming of shows suspended since January, announcing a temporary suspension of the show as it undergoes reformatting for a relaunch late in May.
Meng Fei will continue as host of the revised format of the show. The revised version was first aired on May 13, Twenty-four women stand in an arc, each behind a podium with a light that they initially turn on. The women face a single man, who chooses one of them as his "heartbeat girl" simplified Chinese: His choice of "heartbeat girl" is initially known only to himself and the host of the programme - although there has been one instance where this has been revealed soon after.
The single man uses two or three video clips to reveal some personal information such as occupation, interests, love history and friends' opinions. During each video clip, each of the women decides whether or not he is still "date-worthy" in her opinion by keeping her light on or turning it off. The contestants, psychologists and host frequently exchange banter with each other when video clips aren't being shown.
If, after all the videos have been played, there are more than two girls still with lights on, the man goes and turns off some of those lights, choosing only two of the remaining girls to come up on stage as finalists. After that, the identity of the man's "heartbeat girl" is revealed. She too is invited onto the stage if not already there as a finalist. A new procedural option simplified Chinese: It can be activated only once per round, and is heralded by a "smashing" sound cue, followed by a show of pulsating hearts, along with the number of the woman who "burst the light", on display screens around the studio.
It is essentially the opposite of turning the podium light off; instead, a woman who "bursts the light" is choosing to signal her interest in the man demonstratively rather than just passively leaving her light on. The man is introduced to the women in a series of up to three videos, interspersed with onstage conversations mediated by the host. The women and the candidate are often brutal in their assessments of each other, making sometimes hurtful comments about each other's appearance and personality.
The honest dialogue has made the show popular on Twitter, where screen captures of the English-subtitled show are shared as memes. The candidate can choose any woman who still has her light on at the end of the round — if he gets that far. Mr McMahon's sales pitch obviously worked, as he walked off-stage with Ms Guo and the two are attempting a long-distance relationship. He said he would be interested in appearing on Chinese television again but is hopeful that his relationship with Ms Guo would rule out at least one genre.
