Many couples within the entertainment industry are now eager to make money by appearing on shows together. Companies also tend to favour the idea, since it generates more buzz and higher viewership ratings. Popular celebrity couples include Chilam Cheung (張智霖) and Anita Yuen (袁詠儀), Huang Xiaoming (黃曉明) and Angelababy (楊穎), Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) and Leanne Li (李亞男), as well as Tian Liang (田亮) and Ye Yiqian (葉一茜).
From dating to getting married, Chilam and Anita have filmed with each other and also appeared on variety shows. Last year, Mainland Chinese station, Zhejiang Television, offered 36 million HKD to invite the couple to star in the reality show, There’s You On This Road <一路上有你>. The show involves having different couples overcome various challenges while travelling in South Korea.
Tian Liang and Ye Yiqian were also invited to appear on There’s You On This Road with 29 million HKD. Tian Liang’s popularity skyrocketed after participating in the first season of Where Are We Going, Dad? <爸爸去哪兒> with his daughter. Since then, he has attended many events with his wife.
Angelababy’s popularity also soared in Mainland China due to her appearance in the reality television show, Hurry Up, Brother <奔跑吧兄弟>. Her husband, Huang Xiaoming, is also a renowned artiste, and the couple’s high-profile relationship has always been in the media’s spotlight. According to sources, they are being paid as much as 24 million HKD to appear on shows together.
Wong Cho Lam and Leanne appeared onscreen together several times as a couple prior to their marriage and reportedly pocketed up to 2 million HKD. After marriage, the two were invited to attend an onstage performance in Malaysia back in July. Sources claim they earned 3 million HKD for their appearance.
