Among them, Ma Nuo and Liu Yunchao have stirred extensive controversy.Ma, 22, a model from Beijing, has won plaudits for her stylish appearance, but is equally derided for her material girl image.She once told a man who was jobless and invited her to ride on his bike that she would rather cry in a BMW.The 23-year-old Liu boasted about his 6 million yuan (8,000) bank balance and three sports cars, but his wealth and arrogance was condemned and he was voted off the show.Liu later defended himself by saying he was being honest, while many of the girls were just being deceptive."The show is as dramatic as a TV soap opera," says Liu Tingting, a married office worker in Beijing and regular viewer of the show."It reaches one climax after another every two or three minutes.It features a potpourri of hot topics such as mortgage slaves, the income gap between the rich and poor, and being single, which constantly prick people's nerves." Netizens allege that some guests do not enter the show to date, but merely to get a toehold in the world of show business.They say the production team uses the guests as decoys to spice up the show.Hunan Satellite Television, Jiangsu TV's powerful competitor, also contends If You Are The One is a copy of its dating game Take Me Out (Women Yue Hui Ba), which is based on a copyrighted show with Fremantle Media, a London-headquartered TV, radio and production company. Her opinion resonates with youth," says Chen Zhigang, a critic and playwright.Others say that Hunan's accusation is simply sour grapes because the Jiangsu TV program is topping the ratings. "They have grown up in a society that is quickly accumulating material wealth. They worship money, cars and houses because the highly developing economy has made them do so. It is like a multi-dimensional mirror that reflects social values." Another negative opinion is that the show makes light of serious social issues.
