Chapter 420 The Hot Trailer!
At 9 p.m., as the trailer got more than 10 million hits, the young physician’s microblog finally had some movements.
“The trailer for #Young Physician of Huaxia Competition# is released. The show will officially start on May 1st. Stay tuned.”
This blog was posted out quietly.
Those who saw this post immediately reposted it.
Soon the post caused quite a stir.
“It will be aired on May 1st?”
“Great! There’s only half a month. I heard that the crew started recording this show only a few days ago. It will be on in half a month. That’s fast.”
“Director Li Huawen is wonderful. He’s always quick, even making shows.”
“I’ve seen the trailer and I think the show is fascinating. It’s Director Li Huawen’s style.”
“Blogger, can you send me a private message and tell me if Fang Qiu is out or not? I wouldn’t have watched the trailer if I had known it. I won’t be able to sleep for half a month.”
There was no doubt that with the show’s various publicity stunts, everyone had been looking forward to the first episode. Many people even recommended this show to people around them, so that more and more people joined the camp of the young physician, waiting for the show to start!
The next morning, Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu left the hotel hand in hand and walked to the Central Television building.
On the way, Fang Qiu asked Jiang Miaoyu, “Are you getting ready?”
“Under the rules of this round, I can’t say how well I’ve prepared. It depends on how well my opponent has prepared.”
Speaking of here, Jiang Miaoyu smirked and added, “But I have confidence!”
Fang Qiu nodded solemnly, reached out with both hands, pressed Jiang Miaoyu’s shoulders, put on a look of encouragement, and said, “You know what? I like the way you look when you’re not self-aware!”
“Get out!” Jiang Miaoyu snarled angrily.
“You are such a person. When I first met you, you were so gentle. Look at you now. You are so mean. I’m out of luck to meet such a man!”
“Meet such a man?”
Fang Qiu grinned and smugly said, “Unfortunately, it’s too late. Now that you’re on my boat, do you want to get off?”
Hearing his words, Jiang Miaoyu mumbled. As she was about to say something, a crasher suddenly came to the two of them.
The man called out to Fang Qiu, walked up to them, gave Jiang Miaoyu a blank look, and then told Fang Qiu, “I’ll challenge you in today’s competition. You’d better be careful!”
With that, he went straight away.
The other two were puzzled.
“You know him?” Jiang Miaoyu asked curiously.
Fang Qiu was stunned, too.
Then Jiang Miaoyu smiled and said, “It seems that other people hate you so much. As a weak girl, I must keep away from you, lest I be implicated.”
After that, Jiang Miaoyu strode away.
“You want to leave?”
Fang Qiu grabbed Jiang Miaoyu’s shoulder and said, “No way!”
Then, laughing and joking, they headed for the studio.
Arriving at the studio, Fang Qiu found that all of the 240 people eliminated yesterday were sitting on the chairs off stage.
It seemed that they had been called in as the audience by the director team.
Of course, it was not hard to find the audience for such a popular show.
It was only that the director team felt that the 240 people had been eliminated, but since they had come to the capital, they might as well learn something.
So they kept the 240 people. In this way, they could not only be the audience but also learn more knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine from the following matches.
At this point, the stage also changed.
Instead of five rows of 340 seats, there was a small section for 100 people. This section also had five rows of 20 seats each.
The order of seats was arranged by the crew.
This time, Fang Qiu got the first seat in the first row.
He seemed to be in this position for the convenience of the camera.
Most people were angry about this.
They were in the same competition. Why could Fang Qiu get so many shots?
This had led many people to target at Fang Qiu from the very beginning, trying to suppress him so that they could get more shots.
At seven fifty, everyone took their seats.
The host and three judges stepped onto the stage.
In a series of orders from the director, the various departments of the show were ready.
“The recording begins!”
As the director shouted, the camera directly went to the host on the stage.
“Hello, everyone, welcome to the second episode of the Young Physician of Huaxia Competition.”
The host smiled and spoke to the camera, then turned to the 100 contestants and said, “Today, 50 people out of the 100 people will advance in this competition. Those who advance can successfully become the top 50 in the country.
“Contestants, do you have confidence?” asked the host.
“Yes!” 100 people yelled in unison.
The host nodded approvingly, then looked back at the camera and said, “First of all, let me introduce the rules of the competition to everyone.”
“This is a tough competition!
“Each contestant gives three questions and can assign or drawn lots to determine the opponent. In the mutual duel, the first person who gets two questions right gets through.
“Those who fail will return to their seats to be determined.
“If the final number of the people who advance successfully is 50, then all the pending members will be eliminated.
“If the final number of the people who advance successfully is less than 50, then all the pending contestants will participate in a round of additional competition until the final number is 50!
“Is that clear to everyone?” asked the host.
The 100 people nodded.
Since they knew the rules of the game as early as last night, how could they not know about it?
After receiving all the responses, the host smiled, nodded, and asked, “All the contestants, are you ready?”
“Yes,” answered the 100 people.
The host suddenly beamed and got off the stage, walking toward the answering area and saying, “Before the competition officially begins, I will select a few contestants to interview.”
Although it was a choice, everyone could see that the host did not choose. From the start, he aimed at Fang Qiu. He walked right up to Fang Qiu sitting in the first seat of the first row.
“Fang Qiu, do you have the confidence to face today’s brutal one-on-one elimination system?” asked the host.
“I’ve always had confidence,” Fang Qiu replied dryly.
The host grinned, then changed the subject and suddenly asked, “So, do you have the object that you want to challenge?”
Fang Qiu shook his head and added, “To me, anybody can be my opponent!”
His words caused an uproar.
Not only were the other 99 contestants in the answering area, but the host and 240 audiences were shocked by his words.
“Anybody? Isn’t it presumptuous of you to say so?”
“The members of the four families are not so arrogant. How can you, a freshman, be so arrogant?”
“This is going to be fun!”
“Is Fang Qiu lucky to be in the top 100? He made it because he just met the question he knew how to answer, didn’t he?”
“I have seen arrogant people, but this is the first time I have seen such an arrogant man.”
“Yes, the members of the four great families are still on the stage. Apart from them, these hundred people are not easy to mess with. Maybe there’s a genius among them. Fang Qiu is good, but it’s wrong to be so cocky.”
The audience began to talk crazily.
All 99 contestants on stage stared at Fang Qiu.
98 of them were furious, disdainful, and contemptuous of him. Only Jiang Miaoyu had a bitter smile on her face.
She had no idea why Fang Qiu, who had always kept a low profile, had suddenly become so high profile.
The host was surprised, but he was very excited as well.
In fact, he deliberately created this atmosphere.
He wanted to shape the competition to be contentious before it started.
The question was given to him backstage by the director before the recording began. That was why it happened.
Fang Qiu could see their obvious intent.
He knew from the moment the host walked right up to him.
He didn’t have to turn it down since the show needed it. As he said before, he didn’t have to keep a low profile now that he was on TV. He just wanted to be high profile, unstoppable, and overwhelming!
Therefore, Fang Qiu was naturally happy to cooperate with the interview that was deliberately set by the crew.
“Well, we’ll see.”
Then the interview ended.
As the host returned to his stage, he shouted, “Game on! Props!”
As soon as these words were spoken, several crew members immediately pushed a shelf onto the stage and placed it opposite the 100 contestants.
If you looked closely, you could see that there were 100 drinks on this shelf.
Apparently they were from the sponsor!
“Each of the 100 drinks corresponds to the name of a contestant.”
The host explained and then shouted, “Liu Zhen.”
In the answering area, a young man stood up at once.
“Please feel free to choose a drink number,” the host said.
Liu Zhen thought for a while and said, “No. 68.”
The host went to the shelf and picked up the drink representing No. 68 in front of everyone. Then he opened the cap, looked at it, and announced, “Fang Qiu!”
As he spoke, he made a point to show the name in the cap to the camera.
This time, the audience was stunned.
What was going on here?
In addition to the perks of a good seat, a special interview, and singing the theme song, Fang Qiu was even the first to be picked by someone else.
What good luck he had!
“Please welcome Fang Qiu to the stage.”
As everyone was left speechless with bitterness, a one-on-one challenge stage rose in the center of the stage. Then the host pointed to the challenge stage and yelled at Fang Qiu, “You’re the first one, so you can name any contestant to compete with you!”
Fang Qiu walked onto the challenge stage, smiled, and pointed to a person, saying, “Don’t look at others. Come on, it’s you!”
