Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) returned to TVB City to film Super Trio Maximus <超級無敵獎門人終極篇> yesterday. Although her contract with TVB is not yet in effect, Charmaine has been fulfilling some of her promotional duties in advance to prepare for her official comeback. Last month, she was seen in the studio with former love Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) to shoot photos for next year’s TVB calendar.
On October 1, Charmaine and Joe Ma (馬德鐘) filmed an episode of the popular celebrity game show. Charmaine led the women’s team, made up of good friends Toby Leung (梁靖琪), Janet Chow (周家蔚), Sherming Yiu (姚樂怡), Angela Tong (湯盈盈), Annie Man (文頌嫻), and Margaret Chung (鍾麗淇). The seven ladies competed against Joe’s team, which included Oscar Leung (梁烈唯), Him Law (羅仲謙), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), and Jack Hui (許家傑).
Scheduled to air on Halloween, the two competing teams appeared in themed costumes. While Joe’s team cleverly promoted their upcoming series Tiger Cubs 2 <飛虎II> in SDU uniforms, the girls chose to be funny instead, wearing adult-sized baby clothes complete with baby bonnets and pacifiers. Seeing this, host Eric Tsang (曾志偉) introduced the group as the “Middle-Aged Women” and “The Seven Demons”. In response, the ladies surrounded Eric and called out “daddy!”, causing Eric to shout for help.
Reunited with her friends on the program, Charmaine was having a good time and was quite daring on the show. During a segment, Charmaine and Joe played drinking games with their tongues. Charmaine lost the game and was given wasabi-laced sushi as punishment. She immediately sought out host King Kong (金剛), who is known to rescue his beautiful female colleagues. Unfortunately for Charmaine, King Kong denied her request, saying “It’s no use! I already have a girlfriend!”
During a game where contestants must retrieve a ping pong ball with their mouths, the competitive Him Law nearly matched lips with Toby Leung and Sherming Yiu. Host Timmy Hung (洪天明) played opposite wife Janet, though the two seemed to focus more on each other than on the battle. At one point, Timmy took the ping pong ball into his mouth and then passed it into Janet’s, to which Eric immediately screamed “So disgusting!” When Angela Tong was up against Jack Hui, her husband Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂) tried to prevent Angela from playing the game though she insisted. Loving to his wife, Ka Lok later helped Angela eat a penalty sushi but regretted his earlier request to make the sushi extra spicy.
Reporters caught up with Charmaine after filming, and asked her if her BB costume is the craziest of her career. Charmaine replied, “Was it that bad? Oh well, as actors we must try anything. What’s important is that it is fun. I think it was actually the cutest costume.” She further shared that her TVB contract will come into effect on October 8. As for her upcoming projects, Charmaine said that she will leave it up to the company to decide whether she will film in Hong Kong or in China. However, she added that she will definitely participate in the filming of this year’s Sales Presentation.
