Fei Cheng Wu Rao (“If not sincere then do not disturb”, known in English as If You Are the One) is a Chinese dating game show hosted by Meng Fei. The show is produced by Jiangsu Satellite Television (JSTV) and taped in Nanjing. It was first broadcast on January 15, 2010, and currently airs on Saturday and Sunday nights at 9:05 pm on JSTV. In 2013, and for reasons unknown, the show began broadcasting on SBS Two 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. Episodes are also widely distributed online. The show is viewed internationally over the internet and satellite television. 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.
It’s a very strange show.
