mengfeiIn contemporary China, young people are busy, their social circles are limited, and the relatioship success rate is not too high. With this in mind, on January 15, 2010, China’s Jiangsu TV launched its own style of dating show called If You Are The One, hosted by MengFei.

在当代中国,年轻人的工作忙碌,社交圈子有限,自由恋爱的效率和成功率也不太高。在这样的背景下2010年1月15日中国的江苏卫视推出了一个婚恋交友节目——《非诚勿扰》,主持人是孟非。

feicheng1Each episode has 24 single girls standing on the stage. Five male guests will appear in turn, and girls can say they would love to have a relationship with a male guest by turning on or down their lights. Each male guest will choose a girl which they call “heart girl” whom he wants to take away after showing up. Then the girls give the first impression of the boy. The next step will show three videos about the boy’s personal basic information, emotional experience and his evaluation from his friends. If 24 lights are out after these videos, that means he has failed and none of the girls want to be with him. If only one light is on, the male guest can then choose to “hold her hand” or “give up.” If there are many remaining lights then the male guests can take the initiative to choose and show the heart girl’s name. Then he can ask a few questions to choose among these girls or just give up.

每期节目中有24位单身女生站在台上,5位男嘉宾依次亮相,女生们通过亮灯和灭灯的方式表示自己是否愿意和男嘉宾恋爱。每位男嘉宾上场以后选出想要带走的女生——心动女生,然后女生们对男生的第一印象进行判断。接下来进行两个步骤,播放3个视频,介绍他的个人基本资料,情感经历和朋友对于他的评价,如果三条片播完,24盏灯都熄灭了,则男嘉宾失败退场。如果只有1盏灯亮着,男嘉宾可以选择“牵手”或者“放弃”。 如果剩余很多灯那么男嘉宾可以主动选择,并且公布男嘉宾的心动女生。这些女生在台上,男嘉宾可以问问题,再选择“放弃”或者带走一位女生。
