Who doesn’t like watching variety shows? After all, they provide plenty of entertainment with much laughter and excitement. However, it can get frustrating, especially when you think the person playing is doing things wrong.
Netizens ended up criticising Chinese artist Diamond Zhang Bichen (张碧晨)’s performance during variety show “Keep Running (奔跑吧)”. Apparently, she messed up big time by siding with her adversaries. Needless to say, the artist was quite tired of it by the end.
Bichen was recently featured as a guest on the most recent episode of “Keep Running”. Although she did her best, it apparently wasn’t enough for fans. Things got worse for her during the final game, that is: name tag elimination. Bichen had apparently been fooled into helping the traitors in their midst and mistakenly eliminated the wrong person.
Netizens were quick to call her out on her actions, claiming she was “stupid” and hadn’t played it smart. Several provided analysis on why Bichen should have figured things out sooner while others expressed their frustration. One went as far as claiming that the show should invite people “with brains” to play their games.
The actress herself had apparently agreed she hadn’t been smart and admitted she hadn’t understood what was happening. “I (was) really confused and by the end, I didn’t know who won or lost,” Bichen wrote in a post. “But everyone took care of each other, the show is really fun and (makes us) happy!” She did however promise to stick to singing and not participate in programs requiring her to play detective in the future.
Well, it is simply a game at the end of the day, without much at stake. Hopefully, netizens will ease up on the singer and let bygones be bygones.
