Chapter 415 A Question About Defecation
The next day, at 8 a.m, Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu walked hand in hand toward the CCTV building after breakfast.
Walking on the road, Jiang Miaoyu said with a smug smile, “I’m sure you won’t be able to answer the question that I set.”
“Is it that difficult?” Fang Qiu said with surprise, “You are too cruel, I must tell you seriously. If you do this, it is tantamount to murder your boyfriend.”
“Hmm.” Jiang Miaoyu snorted and continued, “Well, it’s you who are being cruel for not telling me your question.”
Fang Qiu burst out laughing and gently rubbed her head, saying, “Don’t worry, no matter what question you set, I will definitely be able to solve it.”
“Really?” Jiang Miaoyu chuckled. “Well, then don’t ask me for help if you can’t solve it.”
As they were talking, they had already entered the CCTV building.
All the contestants had arrived and were gathering at the door of a studio, waiting to enter.
As they were waiting, a staff member of the show would come to ask them some related information and inform them about some details while recording.
Soon, it was half-past eight.
The door of the studio opened and everyone entered.
As soon as they got in, everyone was shocked.
“Oh, my God!”
“It’s an actual CCTV!”
“Isn’t this place gorgeous?”
“I haven’t seen this studio on CCTV before. Is it built temporarily?”
“Wow, it was worth the trip!”
The contestants couldn’t help but exclaim constantly.
In the crowd, Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu were also amazed.
It was an enormous spiral-shaped studio.
They needed to walk down the stairs after entering.
There were all LED screens straight ahead.
There were props and cameras on both sides.
Stepping onto the stage of the studio, people wouldn’t feel crowded with 340 people in the room. Instead, they felt the place was vast.
On the stage, there were three seats next to the entrance. Obviously, it was the judges’ table.
At the side of the stage, there was a podium for the host.
It was a spiral platform which was over ten meters high for the contestants ahead of the judges’ table.
The platform was semi-circular, facing the judges’ table.
There were five rows with 58 seats on each row.
All the seats were combined with LED boards. At first glance, people would think it was a huge LED screen.
“28 minutes before recording.”
Just when everyone was amazed, the voice of the live director came out of nowhere.
Because it was the first time that the contestants went to a studio, they subconsciously looked for the director’s position as they heard his voice.
“Each seat has a number and name. Please find your seat first,” the director shouted.
Hearing that, no one dared to neglect him, so they hurriedly looked for their own seat.
Soon, 340 people had sat on their own chairs.
Fang Qiu was in the No.29 seat in the first row, which was the middle of the row.
Fang Qiu gave a wry smile when he found this seat.
Actually, he wished he could get a more remote seat, which could be far away from the center because he wanted to keep a low profile to make himself more mysterious.
However, the show directly put him right in the spotlight.
Turning around, Fang Qiu found that Jiang Miaoyu was actually on the right of the fifth row.
There was about one meter between each row, which meant the fifth row was five meters away from the ground.
Although it was just like the height of the cinema, the slope was a bit steep due to the need for saving more space. Therefore, Jiang Miaoyu was quite nervous when she seated.
Gazing at her, Fang Qiu cast a look of comfort to her at once.
The tension of Jiang Miaoyu faded as the crowd filled up around her.
Fang Qiu then began to observe the surroundings.
He found that it was a smart answer machine in front of him. From his seat, there was no way that he could see others’ machines.
Obviously, this angle was carefully measured to avoid cheating in the competition.
Fang Qiu also found that the luxurious platform with stadium seating did not slope as much as he had imagined. Therefore, the contestants could only see a blank screen of others no matter from what angles.
“This answer table is quite interesting,” Fang Qiu murmured to himself.
Since there was still time, Fang Qiu ran to observe from different angles.
No matter where you sat, you would never see the answer from anyone else.
The only thing you could see was the LED screen which showed the correct answer.
But what was the use of seeing this?
All the contestants could see the correct answer on that screen after they finished. Therefore, it wouldn’t help anyone cheat at all but only made them realize their mistakes.
Only when he was sure no one could cheat did Fang Qiu return to his seat.
Once all the students were seated, the crew went on stage and helped them put on the headsets.
At 9 o’clock. “One minute before recording.
“All the contestants, on the order of the host, you need to stand up and clap when we start recording.
“Stage design, ready.
“Here comes the host.”
With the sound of the live director, everything was ready.
“Ten, nine, eight…”
By the order of the director, the stage was ablaze with lights.
All the LED screens were combined together, playing a video.
In the video, a variety of ancient medicine doctors, Chinese Medicine techniques, herbs, and medical equipment appeared.
After the melodious music, a mighty sound was heard.
A golden light flew between the ancient medicine doctors, Chinese Medicine techniques, herbs, and medical equipment, then it became four words—Young Physician of Huaxia.
“Hello, everyone in front of the TV.”
The host opened his mouth and said, “Welcome to the Young Physician of Huaxia Competition.”
“Today, it is the first episode of the competition.
“After a rigorous national selection, 340 contestants from 34 provinces have arrived at our studios to compete for the remaining 100 spots. Do you want to know who will win? Please follow me on this show.”
Speaking of which, the host turned to all the contestants and said, “At first, let’s welcome our 340 contestants.”
Then there came the joyful music and beautiful lights.
As the host signaled, everyone stood up and clapped.
People looked delighted at the moment. There was no tension in the atmosphere.
“Stop.” The host reached out his hand to signal.
Then he continued, “I sincerely hope that this happy atmosphere can continue, but the cruel elimination match is about to start. Good luck, contestants!
“And now, please welcome our three judges.
“The famous master of traditional Chinese Medicine, Li Zhengtang.
“The Chinese Medicine doctor who represented Huaxia and won a foreign medical award before, Huang Zhengren.
“Traditional Chinese Medicine master who made great contributions to Huaxia medicine, Yang Juanyong.”
With the introduction of the host, the semicircular answer platform where the 340 contestants sat suddenly opened like a door from the middle.
Three judges appeared on the stage.
Huang Zhengren helped push the wheelchair of Li Zhengtang, following Yang Juanyong and going to the judges’ table.
The host then invited the judges to speak.
Because it was recorded for the television, the judges inevitably said something official. Otherwise, the audience might not understand if they just said something about Chinese Medicine.
The main purpose of the program was to promote and develop Chinese Medicine, so they couldn’t just say things that only doctors could understand.
After the introduction, the host opened his mouth, “All right, let me show you the rules of this competition, please look at the screen.”
The screen showed the rule about letting every contestant set a question and the video that the contestants wrote down the questions in their rooms.
The host added, “There are 340 questions in this competition. People who gave the wrong answer would be eliminated immediately. The remaining 100 people would win.
“And before the final winners were decided, if there were less than 100 people who gave the correct answer, we would go on to one more round which requires the contestants to answer one more question until we have 100 winners.”
“Contestants, do you understand?” the host asked.
“Yes,” all the students replied.
“Are you ready?” the host asked again.
“Yes,” they replied.
“Judges, ready?” The host turned to the judges.
All the judges smiled and nodded at the same time.
“All right.” The host nodded and opened his mouth, “Now, I declare, the competition is on.”
On the stage, the lights were flashing.
A few seconds later, when the lights stopped, the host took a hand card and stated while looking at the hand card, “The first question, given by Fang Qiu!”
All of a sudden, the camera gave a close-up to Fang Qiu.
All the contestants also looked at Fang Qiu right away, so did the judges.
Fang Qiu, who was sitting in the middle of the stage, was shocked and his face turned dark as he heard the host call out his name.
“This is insane! Could they just give out the name of the person who gave the question? This is ridiculous.” Fang Qiu thought to himself.
“Could they really show this on TV?”
“They must do it on purpose.”
Fang Qiu was embarrassed and flustered because his question was quite disgusting.
However, the host didn’t stop even though he noticed Fang Qiu’s embarrassment. Instead, he exclaimed after taking a look of the question and Fang Qiu, “Fang Qiu’s question is quite professional.”
“Listen up, everyone, Fang Qiu’s question is, a woman suddenly feels the abdominal pain in the morning and wants to defecate, so she hurries to the toilet. As a result, she has diarrhea. What disease does she have?
“Answer A, the large intestine suffers from cold; B, deficiency of yin in the stomach; C, excessive heat in the stomach; D, deficiency of yang in the kidney.”
As they heard the question, all the contestants on the stage looked at each other.
No one would have thought that Fang Qiu was such a vulgar man!
The first question was so vulgar.
This was so outrageous.
Fang Qiu felt so embarrassed.
If he had known earlier that the host would say who gave the question, he would never have written this disgusting question.
However, he didn’t know.
Now, Fang Qiu could only bear it.
“You write about women?” Jiang Miaoyu, who was a little afraid of the height, glared at Fang Qiu in the distance, murmuring to herself and frowning, “Since you know it so well, you might encounter this case before. Otherwise, why don’t you write about a man? Well, it’s necessary to make up some rules for my boyfriend now!”
