SBS 2 is giving Australians the chance to find their soul mate and be a contestant on the world’s biggest dating show. If You Are the One and SBS 2 are inviting single Australians to take part in the filming of two Australian specials filmed in both Australia and Nanjing, China.
With a viewing audience of up to 50 million people per episode, If You Are The One is a popular Chinese dating show and a cultural phenomenon. A lone male suitor has to impress a panel of 24 single women, who can then register their interest or disinterest in the man through the use of their podium lights. Popular host and ringmaster extraordinaire Meng Fei oversees the action (and offers contestants blunt dating advice) in front of a large studio audience.
Love doesn’t (usually) care which country you’re from, but all entrants must be living in Australia and are required to speak fluent Mandarin.
New episodes of If You Are The One air on SBS 2 at 7:30pm every Saturday and Sunday, with classic episodes screening every weeknight at 6.30pm.
