Disabled on tv dating show
The show, presented by Caroline Flack, throws a bunch of good looking singletons together in a huge Spanish mansion for six weeks in the hope that they’ll find love.
It's been the talking point of the summer as it caused never-ending drama, on/off relationships, humiliating betrayals and some seriously X-rated sex scenes – so pretty much everything we love to hate on TV.
Wang said that the show is a window into Chinese society at large, and that through it, "you can tell what China is thinking about and chasing after." The show's focus was intended to be young professionals.
While most of the contestants are in their twenties, there have been instances of male contestants as old as 48 appearing on the show.
According to Beijing-based CSM Media Research, the audience ratings for Fei Cheng Wu Rao - which as of May 22, 2013 had screened a total of 343 episodes - were 2.77 percent of television viewers, or 36 million, twice as many as the nearest competitor for that timeslot.
The pair drew inspiration from the Taken Out format, however when the rights for that show were instead won by a rival network, If You Are the One was launched instead.
In each episode, two men and women strip down for a shot at the primary daters, then each dater picks who they connected with the best to be their keeper.
Starting from January 2018, it air on Saturday nights at pm.
In 2013, the show began broadcasting in Australia on SBS 2 (now SBS Viceland), in an hour-long version with English subtitles provided by SBS.
If You Are the One experienced great popularity in its first broadcast because of its unique approach to dating and the conversations that are often humorous with friendly insults.
The show sought to 'stretch the limits' of what could be discussed on Chinese television.
