Sbs chinese dating show
A traditional spin on a modern romance dilemma, contestants will have to believe in their parents to find the one.
The parents decide who will date their son or daughter, girls may be told they aren’t pretty or young enough, and it has a transgender host…. Buoyed by the success of If You Are the One SBS VICELAND will screen the unique and sometimes politically-incorrect, Meet the Parents: China.
The show's popularity and social commentary has drawn attention of academics and foreign media, and after concerns from Chinese regulators in 2011 the show's format was tweaked to de-emphasize factors such as financial wealth.
After a short break from March 2017 to May 2017, If You Are the One returned in a revised format.
In 2013, the show began broadcasting on SBS 2 (now SBS Viceland) in Australia, in an hour-long version with English subtitles provided by SBS.
If You Are the One has been a ratings success in China and is now the highest-rated show for Jiangsu TV. The show is viewed internationally over the internet and satellite television.
It was first broadcast on January 15, 2010, and originally aired twice a week on Saturday and Sundays until December 2014.
