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. But my biggest complain is that it is so so so so hard to watch a subtitled show and tweet at the same time without missing something!
Do you think a show like this would work in Australia? I’m looking forward to the Australian special, where they took from memory 30 Aussie applicants. This would not work in Australia as the culture is different and we all know what type of contestant would be casted. But B and T will over exaggerate their honesty and still come across as nasty. Yes I agree, the people on IYATO pull it off beautifully. Is that the stupid woman whose son took her on, and even after they proved to her, in lots of ways, the guy didn’t even exist, she still reckon she loved him?
RR, a version of this show was actually tried in Australia circa 2007-8 , a guy with the surname of Kerley hosted it. I don’t know if an Aussie version would be as good or not. I cant remember if Meng Fei said 8 girls and 22 guys. BDD @6-that would have been funny to watch Doc Phil is trying to be honest with the woman who hasn’t worked in twenty years but wants to live like a Kardashian. Whereas those Chinese girls can say it as it is without nastiness. Still no power and missed the cricket at the crucial moments.
I’ve studied how traditional Chinese marriage rituals have evolved in response to globalization.
In many ways, dating shows became a powerful way to facilitate these changes.
The show is a cultural phenomenon in China, where each episode is watched by up to 50 million people.
Mr Mc Mahon was one of 10 men and 16 women who travelled to China for the Australian specials."I thought I'd put myself out there and find out if I was the one," Mr Mc Mahon told 774 ABC Melbourne's Rafael Epstein.
"It's a good insight into Chinese culture and just some of the crazy things that go on and the requirements [Chinese people have] for relationships," Mr Mc Mahon said.
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."You get around 45 minutes onstage with 24 girls ... Mr Mc Mahon's sales pitch obviously worked, as he walked off-stage with Ms Guo and the two are attempting a long-distance relationship.
