When it was first officially announced and called for applicants to participate, they received well over 1,200 applications. Could you blame them? As an aspiring MC, of course, you’d want to get a jump start in your career, especially if it came with an opportunity to be mentored by the likes of Dwagie, Leo Wang, PoeTek, and Razor Chiang.
Fast forward to August of this year, a season two was confirmed. An application window was opened from August 29 to September 18, allowing aspiring MCs to send a 60-second demo to the show. Fast forward a little bit more to now, and the TV series won multiple awards at the 57th Golden Bell Awards.
The award presentation for television show categories was held on October 21 at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei. Not only did they win the Best Variety Show Award, they were also given the Best Lighting for a Television Show, and Best Art and Design for a Television Show awards.
