Retired Villainess Transmigrates into a Cannon Fodder - Chapter 768
Golden Agent of the Adonis (88)
Fang Zhenxuan, being a law student, understood best the disputes between people. He knew which types of people were prone to conflicts and which kinds of conflicts were likely to spark controversies. These questions further shattered Zhou Yuan’s celebrity image, turning her into an ordinary woman struggling with real-life issues in the eyes of the audience.
If viewers wanted to watch ordinary people, why bother watching TV? Celebrities could relate to real life, but they must have something cute or endearing that could win over fans. If they become too realistic and make people think of more practical problems, they wouldn’t be likable anymore.
This was true especially for viewers who loved watching romantic reality shows. Most of them were women, and none of the questions written by Fang Zhenxuan could be easily brushed off. In particular, the question about the most unacceptable habit of living with a female roommate struck a chord with everyone. Everyone all had roommates and experienced this aspect, so if Zhou Yuan claimed she had never encountered it, she would seem too fake. But if she pointed out someone else’s flaws, even without naming names, the audience wouldn’t appreciate her speaking out. They would also try to guess who she was referring to, and Zhou Yuan would inadvertently offend the viewers and those who had lived with her.
Then there was the question about the age of her first love. Zhou Yuan hadn’t publicly revealed any past relationships, but as a child star, she had always been under scrutiny as she grew up. If she were to lie now and her first love was exposed in the future, what would she do? She would be labeled a liar! So she had no choice but to tell the truth. She had her first love at 18. Although she was legally an adult, everyone still had the impression of her as an innocent young girl at 18. It felt like her image was crumbling.
After answering these questions, the audience would only perceive her and Chen Lifeng as an ordinary couple without much sweetness. They would see them as just an average couple, like everyone else.
Zhou Yuan felt frustrated, but the persona she had built in the industry was that of a gentle and kind person. She couldn’t lose her temper and just storm off in public, so she proposed playing a few more rounds. She was determined to drag Fang Zhenxuan down with her. This time she would be the one shaking the lottery jar.
Fang Zhenxuan was very cooperative and lost several times. The first question he got was: What does his dream partner look like?
Fang Zhenxuan answered, “I have a busy schedule right now, so I don’t have a dream partner.” Before the other girls could protest, he added, “But if I were to talk about the type of girl I appreciate, it would have to be my agent. She’s beautiful, kind-hearted, highly competent at work, protective, and always considering the artists’ well-being. The most crucial point is that she judges people by their appearance. I think if I take good care of my face, I can enjoy her favor for a long time. She will definitely treat me well forever. Hahaha~”
The ladies thought that he was joking to avoid the topic of dream partners and laughed in response. Zhou Yuan, on the other hand, was even more displeased. What did Fang Zhenxuan mean by constantly praising Chu Xiang in front of her? Was he provoking her?
Everyone was aware of the fallout between Chu Xiang and Chen Lifeng before. Fang Zhenxuan said that Chu Xiang always considered the artists’ well-being and had strong work capabilities. Then, wasn’t the fallout Chen Lifeng’s fault? Unfortunately, Zhou Yuan couldn’t throw in a comment. If she showed even the slightest hint of targeting Chu Xiang, she would immediately attract backlash.
Fang Zhenxuan drew the second question: “Say a cheesy love phrase to the opposite sex closest to you.”
Fang Zhenxuan sighed and said, “I’ve been busy making money to support my family these years. To be honest, besides my niece, the opposite sex closest to me is my agent. It’s not appropriate to say cheesy lines to my niece, so I’ll have to reluctantly subject my agent to some cheesy lines.”
Zhou Yuan inserted sarcastically, “How can that be considered a hardship? Girls would always feel happy hearing cheesy lines, right?”
Fang Zhenxuan shook his head and laughed, as if he had thought of something fun. “I joked one day that I wanted to compliment her, but as soon as I uttered a couple of lines, she couldn’t accept it and said I was too cheesy.”
The girls nearby were curious and pried, “Come on, tell us what you complimented her on!”
Fang Zhenxuan innocently replied, “It was nothing, really. I just said she’s so beautiful and should buy more clothes. Otherwise, how can those clothes showcase their beauty?”
“Oh~~~ You’re really good at this! Quickly, say a cheesy pickup line to the camera. Hahaha, will you get beaten up when you go back?”
“No. After all, she likes looking at my face and is very tolerant of me.” Fang Zhenxuan retorted with a playful remark and then exaggeratedly expressed deep affection toward the camera. “Chu Xiang, what’s her Chinese zodiac sign again?”
The girls next to him joined in and asked, “What’s her zodiac sign? Rabbit? Dragon?”
Fang Zhenxuan shook his head and said, “No, she belongs to me.” He pointed at the camera with his hand and said seriously, “I saw someone online saying they want to steal my agent. Chu Xiang, remember, you’re my agent. You’re not allowed to look at other handsome guys or beautiful ladies.”
Everyone burst into laughter again. Fang Zhenxuan lost a few rounds in the game but managed to skillfully avoid the tricky questions each time, shifting the focus elsewhere. After the game ended, upon reflection, they realized that he always found a reason to praise Chu Xiang to the heavens, making everyone laugh, and creating a light and joyful atmosphere that perfectly concealed the underlying tension of the game.
