The first episode of ‘Star Acceleration’ was a complete success, and as soon as it aired two new companies contacted the crew asking to add advertisements. Of course, the director was well aware who was responsible for drawing these new sponsors in.
Fortunately, Ruan Tian seemed to be very strong, so the director didn’t even need to play any tricks behind the scenes to keep this walking billboard on his show, causing him to feel extremely happy.
However, enough fame would always attract a proportional amount of hate.
These days Ruan Tian was recognized as an unofficial variety show queen, but she still attracted sneers and ridicule from certain people online. A particular netizen posted: 【So what if a little starlet like Ruan Tian can attract some attention? At the end of the day, she can still only spin around in variety shows. You tell me, which serious actor wastes their time on variety shows? She’s destined to turn old and white while only ever being able to act in those mindless idol dramas. Really losing face as an actress. 】
Of course, when you clicked on his Weibo and took a closer look, sure enough, he was one of Shi’an’s fans.
Not only that, he was actually a professional fan who worked in the industry, so he had some insider knowledge of Shi’an’s upcoming material.
Thanks to his information, a certain news outlet even made a post on Weibo heavily implying that Shi’an would be starring in a big director’s new movie.
And it was true. Although Shi’an ended up not getting the part in Director Cheng’s movie last time, she still managed to use her family connections and the power of the female lead’s halo that had rubbed off on her, the female lead’s best friend, to secure another leading role in a different movie.
And these days, everyone acknowledged that movies were simply born superior to TV shows, so it was an excellent opportunity for her.
Her fans all began to brag when they saw this news.
“Haha, I’m looking forward to Princess Shi’an’s new movie. These little variety show stars shouldn’t try any tricks.”
“My sister made her debut as a movie star, while your sister made her debut as a stand-in. It’s clear that their levels aren’t comparable.”
“Our little princess has already won a spot on the covers of several magazines, she’s just waiting for the right time to officially announce it.”
And this last point was actually also true. It was all because Zhou Xiaoqiao had recently returned to the fashion design circle. Of course, as the female lead, she was sheltered by the power of her golden finger, so she easily integrated back into the fashion design circle and managed to secure many brand partnerships for her best friend by using her contacts and connections.
Ruan Tian needed to work hard for several years to get to this point, but the female lead only needed to lift her fingers and she would immediately get the same result.
Whenever she thought up to this point, Ruan Tian really wanted nothing more than to find the author of the original novel and scold them thoroughly. People shouldn’t just type words randomly, okay!
Today was the day that filming for the second episode of ‘Star Acceleration’ would begin. However, before they started, the director appeared to warn all of the guests in advance. From here, the show would only get more difficult and he hoped that they all would not take things too lightly.
After his warnings, everyone all gathered on set and the director stood at the front with a microphone. He explained: “There will be an additional three seekers added to the set for this episode, and the guests will be divided into only two-person teams this time. The teams that are able to complete their tasks and survives until the end will be considered the victors.”
“The person who gets the most accumulative total points will be named as the game’s MVP.”
“As for the teams, we will be drawing lots again.”
Ruan Tian was lucky and ended up being on to Shao Chengyue’s team this time.
Shi’an and Ji Wangjiang both ended up on the other team.
Seeing them, Ruan Tian suddenly remembered that her Elimination Token could still be used twice more.
Looking over, she could see that Shi’an had clearly meticulously applied her make-up today, obviously wanting to show off her best side to the cameras.
Thus, the second the game began, Ruan Tian viciously used her Elimination Token!
An announcement immediately rang out from above: 【Blue team’s Shi’an, out! 】
However, the very next second, Ruan Tian heard the broadcast again: 【Blue team’s Ji Wangjiang has launched a name-tag tearing challenge to red team’s Ruan Tian! Location: King City Square. 】
【Winner’s reward: One Resurrection Token. 】
Ho? Was this his revenge for his precious little girlfriend?
Ruan Tian really hadn’t expected for Ji Wangjiang, this usually aloof movie star, to want to give Shi’an a hand in this sort of situation. It seemed that these two people had a better relationship than she had thought.
However, Ruan Tian was actually glad to accept this one-on-one challenge. Until now she had always been worrying that there would be no chance for her to bash in Ji Wangjiang’s dog head, so now that the opportunity had come knocking she certainly wasn’t going to let it slip by.
By now Shi’an was really unable to keep pretending and projecting a friendly facade anymore. Ruan Tian had eliminated her again and again, so no matter how strong her mentality was it had inevitably started to collapse. As she watched this scene, her eyes lingered on Ruan Tian, and her gaze cold and her expression unfriendly without any pretense of kindness.
Ruan Tian also looked over and saw her glaring face. In fact, when compared to Zhou Xiaoqiao who seemed like she would always keep pretending to be a white lotus even if she died, this Shi’an was not so unbearable. At least she was more honest.
