After leaving TVB earlier this year, Pierre Ngo (敖嘉年) recently appeared on the new ViuTV reality show, Midlife Crisis <中佬唔易做>. The show primarily focuses on the difficulties of middle-aged men, and the actors take on regular blue-collar jobs in order to experience the hardships of everyday jobs firsthand. The most recent episode showcases Pierre taking on a job as a food delivery driver.
Although the 43-year-old actor has a motorcycle license in real life, the job proved to be difficult and tiresome, as he constantly dealt with taking the wrong turns and phone issues. When he finally reached his destination, he continued to battle nuisances, as the customer was unhappy about being filmed. Pierre reassured, “We are filming it for our own use. We did not capture you on camera.” The customer responded, “So you guys are coming here randomly and filming things? That means I can call the cops, right?” To this, Pierre simply replied, “Actually, yes you can.”
Reflecting on this segment of the show, Pierre admitted that the job was difficult and he was often late to work. One time, it took him nearly two hours to deliver the items. “I was unfamiliar with the area. Sometimes, I would lose reception on my phone, so I did not have GPS signal. Plus, the motorcycle does not have an overhead roof. When it rains, I am soaked. When the sun is out, I am constantly exposed to the sun. Not only do I have to constantly pay attention to my phone, but I also have to be careful driving and parking to make sure I don’t get a ticket.”
Midlife Crisis also stars Ben Yuen (袁富華), Jerry Ku (古明華), Cheung Chung Ki (張松枝), and Evergreen Mak (麥長青).
