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.

B: It’s my retirement, and I’ll veg if I want to. A: You’ll get bored. You’ll need to find something to occupy your time and your mind. B: I did think about taking up the cello, actually. When I was 17, I knew someone who had started practicing the cello when she was 60, and six years later she was playing in the local orchestra. A: See? There’s no limit to what you can do if you set your mind
Would banana skins be considered kitchen waste? (5/5) 那香蕉皮算不算廚餘？（五） A: Listen, the garbage truck’s coming, quick! B: Wow, it’s time for the Taiwanese most important evening social ritual! As soon as you hear The Maiden’s Prayer, it’s like someone’s pushed a button, you get all flustered, grab all the garbage bags and rush out of the door as if your life depended on it. A: Ha ha. When in Rome… Hey, look, she seems to be the one who just moved in. And she’s rather well dressed. B: Yeah, not like us, standing here in our flip-flops and shorts, the standard get-up. A: Well, I once had
