Move over ‘If You Are The One’, there’s now a Chinese dating show featuring contestants’ parents

Words by Veronica Stanford

Best viewing ever.

SBS has been delivering If You Are The One goodness for a few years.

The network is now fuelling our obsession with Chinese dating shows further, airing Chinese Dating With The Parents earlier this week.

The show which began in 2016, invites single hopefuls (and their parents) to meet with potential partners.

“Single hopefuls reach out to famed transgender actress Jin Xing for help with their love problems. But there is a catch – any potential partners must go through an intensive and gruelling interrogation with the contestant’s parents to proceed to the next stage,” reads the SBS site.

You can watch the first episode on SBS On Demand here then tune in to SBS VICELAND from 7pm Saturdays.

If you’re not already excited enough, perhaps recounting some of the best moments from If You Are The One will do the trick. We can only expect the parents to be waaaaay more brutal.
