I Know Everything - Chapter 422
Chapter 422: Meteor Girls’ Restaurant.
The music stopped and the stage plunged into darkness once again.
When the lights came back again, it changed into an outdoor scene.
It was at an iconic palace.
Nine girls in beautiful sweats stood outside of the Forbidden Palace and greeted at the camera.
The captain Li Yating leaned toward the camera and said with a grin, “Welcome to my hometown, Huaji….Ah…!”
Before she could finish her speech, Zhu Ludan and Meng Yun, who were next to her, grabbed her and tickled her.
Chen Wu applauded and cheered, “That’s right! Get her! Huajin can still be considered her hometown? This is our capital!”
The girls were laughing and joking around but for the audience, it was a novel sight and very fun.
Meteor Girls were all top beauties as they were selected from amongst thousands of girls and they were young so they could make people feel the vitality of youth.
Most people that came to watch were under 30, especially students.
They loved that youthfulness and them playing around.
This type would seem silly to the adults but perfectly suitable to them.
Having fun made people happy.
After a while, Li Yating finally used her ‘Authority’ to overwhelm the girls and then took out two envelopes to let the two teams choose their tasks.
Four girls led by Meng Yun got the Zhajiangmian.
The other four girls led by Kong Xiyu ‘Beijing Sweet Pease Pudding’.
They were both famous Huajin dishes and everyone there was familiar with it.
The girls needed to find the most authentic dishes and learn the history behind the dish before learning it.
When Meng Yun was selecting her envelope, she was praying to get a good one.
Then she suddenly jumped when she saw it.
“Muhahaha, Little Yuyu, you’re gonna lose for sure~~~” Meng Yun pointed at them and said, “Zhajiangmian is Huajing’s most famous dish, the name alone can allow us to win!”
“Tsk! Don’t be so sure of yourself! What if the guests we have liked were sweet? By then, you’re damned!” Kong Xiyu rebutted.
“Sweets should be dragged away! Those are evil incarnate!” Meng Yun declared with her hands on her hips.
“I don’t care~~~” Kong Xiyu pulled her team away, “We should quickly learn it from a master, we don’t have time to squabble with these people.”
Meng Yun walked away from the other side to not show any weakness before stopping awkwardly.
Because there was a wall in front of her.
A swarm of popup texts appeared.
“Meng Yun is so cute, she’s truly from Shuchuan!”
“I’m on her side, sweet teeth are heretics, hotpot and spicy food is justice!”
“Did you ask Sister Xiaofeng her taste? He’s from Zhejiang and they’re mostly sweet teeth!”
“Exactly, Sister Xiaofeng is the leader of this show, do you dare to go against him?”
“Didn’t you also forget something? Bu Yiyi is also one of Sister Xiaofeng’s girlfriends and she is the standard of a savory person! Wouldn’t Sister Xiaofeng change for her?”
Who are the first special guests of the episode? It’s rumored that it was Sister Xiaofeng who personally invited the guest, is it Bu Yiyi?”
“Why not our Dong’er?”
More and more people joined the conversation and it was completely off topic.
The show continued.
Huajin had a lot of restaurants specialize in Zhajiangmian and Beijing Sweet Pease Pudding but the program team didn’t tell them which one was better so they had to look for themselves.
In the process of looking for it, they encountered many situations, there was a lot of laughter.
Among that, Kong Xiyu’s group got played by an old man as when they drove to Fifth Ring, the dim sum place that was selling the Pease Pudding wasn’t open and it was already past noon.
The girls woke up at 7am so they were hungry and barely got any energy to move.
Their only option was to eat some Zhajiangmian on the stall.
Finding it was only the first step as learning to cook it was even more difficult.
Because these girls’ best dishes were instant noodles and ordering takeout.
So they screamed and yelled during their learning process and it was deafening but the people watched it with relish.
People had the evil taste of liking watching celebrities making fools of themselves.
Seeing the groups of girls screaming and laughing on the screen, they felt happy and content.
“Look, I’m starting to imagine this is how my wife would cook in the future and I suddenly feel scared, what am I going to do if I have to eat those dark recipe dishes every day?”
“Stop dreaming! Your wife? Of these nine goddesses, if any of them can become your girlfriend for a day, it would already be a blessing! A wife!?”
“Haha, Cai Huihan was asked to peel cucumber but she was a bit dazzled… does she have a dirty mind?”
“Stop bullshitting OP above, Huihui was just smeared and slandered recently, how could she move on if you keep saying stuff like that?”
“Right, right, she just has never done it before so we have to encourage her more… such as having her peel more cucumber, hahaha…”
“The pease pudding group is the funniest! They are like making clay and fighting a battle! This seems already decided!”
After untold hardships, the eight girls from the two teams finally got the approval of their masters and returned with experience.
After a long journey, they finally went back to the studio.
The guest on the first episode wasn’t revealed so when Su Mo, who was wearing a casual suit and turtleneck sweater, came out after opening the door, not only the audience in front of their scream all yelled but the Meteor Girls reaction was even more exaggerated.
Meng Yun and Liang Yu instantly rushed over to him and hugged Su Mo as they refused to let go.
Su Mo didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as it took him a while to appease his little fans.
The people watching were also completely stunned.
“@Xiao Qing, Get here, your idol is actually in the show!”
“Oh my god, I’m not dreaming, am I? Su Mo hasn’t appeared on variety shows for many years!”
“Right, how much would that cost? Shanhai Streaming is really that generous?”
“Why are you looking down on our Momo? Do you think he’ll hop on a variety show for money? Are you joking?”
“Exactly! Su Mo is someone that put a lot of importance in his reputation and wouldn’t never do anything just for money! He probably came this time because he owed Teacher Lu!”
“That’s right! Our Sister Xiaofeng sure has influence! Su Mo came just because of him!”
After Meteor Girls got out of their star-struck mode, there was a brief interview.
Su Mo wasn’t a very talkative guy so he just said he was very satisfied with his concerts this year and shared some tidbits.
But that was how things were, because of Su Mo’s appearance, the number of views skyrocketed to 15 million.
Under the urging of Li Yating, the members of the two teams started to cook the two specialties of Huajin they learned.
Su Mo was a southerner so wasn’t that familiar with Huajin dishes.
Li Yating took him to visit the two open kitchens and explained to him while overseeing it but the girls got nervous and that led to some incidents.
Amidst that, Zhou Songjie, who was on team Zhajiangmian, cut her hands at this moment, at the shock of everyone.
“This for real?!”
“Damn, I thought they were just for show and that they were just acting!”
“Right, what kind of variety show is that real? Look at Zhou Songjie, she cried so hard that her makeup is ruined now.”
“No shit, if you cut yourself that hard, won’t you also cry?”
“However, Yunyun and Wuwu are so nice, there’s also Su Mo, he took upon himself to bandage her… it’s so heartwarming.”
“I’m done. I fell in love with a man 20 years older than me because of this scene, but I really like Su Mo~~~”
The Huajin specialty made by the two teams weren’t that authentic.
The noodles on the Zhajiangmian were too soft, not to mention that it was also a little mushy.
The ingredient didn’t seem to be well cut either as the shapes were all over the place.
It was especially true for the Pease Pudding.
It should be beautifully shaped and bouncy.
But it looked like gum when made by the girls and the audience wondered if it was even edible.
Fortunately, Su Mo was someone kind and instead of teasing them about it, he encouraged them.
After the finished product was brought out, the eight girls acted like they didn’t dare to look at it.
Su Mo also found it funny but he could only choose the one that looked a little bit better.
In the end, Su Mo chose the sweets he liked Pease Pudding as the winning dish.
Hearing that, Kong Xiyu and her team jumped in joy and went to Su Mo begging for hugs, almost knocking him down… many people burst out in laughter at that.
At the end of the show, many viewers didn’t even feel the time pass.
The schedule for the entire show was two hours.
The first hour was in the city while the other was in the studio.
That one hour wasn’t only one hour of shooting as it was five hours of footage that got edited.
Let alone the city, apart from preparing and discussing the progress of the show, they had been shooting for 5 days and the girls’ legs almost swell due to too much standing.
Those were all the best clips so the audience would naturally watch it with relish.
Throughout the program, the viewership was climbing up and didn’t fluctuate like a W.
The number of views for the first episode of ‘Meteor Girls’ Restaurant’ was fixed at 17 million in average and 19 million at its peak!
This was the pinnacle of all variety shows in streaming websites!
“The ‘Meteor Girls’ Restaurant’ created by the host has made history in the history of online variety shows, which has prompted more people to pay attention to the show and gain more popularity.”
“The generous system will give out a song recall. Keep going, young man!”
