Chinese dating show

But just the fact of being a foreigner in China can make you feel like a celebrity sometimes.

Suddenly the entire set starts to rotate around me and my insides begin to melt.

I feel like I'm trapped inside a Transformer which has just woken up.

I find myself crouching on a small, circular platform, clutching a microphone, breathing heavily and trying to listen to the voices of the hosts and the previous contestant, but understanding nothing.

I'm surrounded by scaffolding, cables and stage machinery, dimly illuminated by fluorescent lighting.

This was the sign I was about to emerge from a narrow tube onto the studio floor to blinding lights and the screams of the audience.

That was the worst part, but after one hour – intense and surreal in equal measure – it was over. Not many Westerners can say they've been on a Chinese TV show.Little did I know what I was letting myself in for.Conquering nerves is rewarding It's six weeks later.Even the name of the show in Chinese 非诚勿扰 (Fēi chéng wù rǎo), emphasises the cultural difference – the phrase actually means ‘serious inquiries only’.Just how good my Chinese is (or isn't) Part of my motivation for becoming a British Council Language Assistant was to learn Chinese.At the beginning of last November, a Chinese teacher and colleague at my school sent me a message on We Chat (the Chinese near-equivalent of Whats App) asking if I was looking for a girlfriend in China.
