Following the huge success of the last two seasons, online video platform iQiyi recently launched Season 3 of its boyband reality show “Youth with You.” The new season is hosted by singer Chris Lee, while Li Ronghao, Will Pan and Lisa of K-pop group BlackPink serve as vocal, rap and dance mentors for the 119 trainees.
The top nine standouts among the contestants are set to form a boyband. Unlike previous seasons, however, iQiyi has recruited different types of trainees to increase the diversity of talent on the show, including the members of Produce Pandas, a five-piece “plus-sized” band. Since they don’t fit the standard physique of pop idols in showbiz, these big boys will surely add a little extra to the show.
As the survival show season begins, Tencent purposely aired its boyband reality show “Chuang 2021” a day earlier than “Youth with You,” with the two survival shows going head-to-head this year.

I think the air conditioner’s on the blink (4/5) 冷氣機好像壞了（四） A: I think the air conditioner’s on the blink. It doesn’t turn on when I push the button. What are we going to do? B: We’ve had this air conditioner for years. Let’s just get a new one. We could buy one with a heater function. A: Heater? Are you pulling my leg? B: A lot of people do the same thing: They buy an air conditioner in the summer when it’s scorching hot, and they forget how cold it gets in winter, much to their regret when it gets cold.
