Celebrities plus cute kids is always a plus, right? Hunan TV recently began broadcasting a new reality show called Grade One (一年级), in which actor Chen Xuedong and actress Song Jia are put in charge of a new first-grade class. Watch the show on Hunan TV’s YouTube account.
Me with my mouth full of plastic Mandarin*, I’m also intoxicated. Is Grade One fun to watch?
* “Plastic Mandarin” is a way of referring to Mandarin that is heavily influenced by the Hunan dialects.
Chen Chusheng celebrated the one-month-old birthday of his newborn son! As might befit the child of a singer, the kid’s English nickname is “Demo.”

Li Yifeng recently attended one of the NBA Global Games in Beijing. The teams playing were the Brooklyn Nets and the Sacramento Kings, but looks like Li Yifeng was more focused on getting a picture with Yao Ming and Shaquille O’Neal. That’s a pretty advanced selfie angle there, if I might say.
Watching some basketball. Yao Ming looks fatter than O’Neal here.
The new iPhone 6 came out in China on October 17, so here’s Guo Jingming with a trivia question for his fans:
Am I holding an iPhone 6, or an iPhone 6 Plus? (It’s no use looking at the place where Weibo says I posted from. I’m very crafty; how could I leave behind such an obvious clue?)
The answer? An iPhone 6.
Top Combine released a ridiculously catchy single composed (of course) by Ma Xueyang. The song, titled “Big White Pear” (鸭梨大),is actually about the pressures in life that current youth face, and the only reason there’s a pear in the song title is because the word for “Chinese white pear” (yālí 鸭梨) sounds like the word for “pressure” (yālì 压力). Here’s to hoping the MV literally has a giant pear in it.
What kind of pressure (lit. white pear) do you have?
Top Combine’s Zhang Yuan also posted a funny picture of bandmate Liu Zhoucheng taking a selfie when he said he was going to take a nap. Hey, there’s a reason he’s called “Xiao Mei.”
The one behind me said that he was going to take a nap. He fell asleep and then started taking selfies again…
Christine Fan called on husband Blackie Chen to comfort Chen Bolin at the engagement party of his In Time With You costar Ariel Lin, and… well, this happened.
