At eight o&x2019;clock that night, the sea level had already risen and the sea water was already up to everyone&x2019;s ankles. At this time, the nine of them had only successfully managed to set up the bamboo platform that could support all of their weights.
Everyone could not wait to get up on the bamboo platform and put all of their resources on top but at this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly came up with a last-minute suggestion to set up a roof using some of the leaves and weeds because Brother Zhuang had predicted that it would definitely rain soon.
&x201C;Forget it, Sister Yuning. It&x2019;s already good enough that we have a table so that we would not get wet. Let&x2019;s hurry up and get on top of the platform already. The tide is already rising,&x201D; Jin Mingchen replied immediately. This young boy had been busy swimming and fishing all day. He was extremely sunburned and the skin on his hands were already wrinkled.
&x201C;So, if it really rains, do you really want the nine of us to be drenched the entire night? Since we can already start setting up the walls, then let&x2019;s just work a little harder to set up the roof too. If you are tired, you can just sit down and rest for a short while,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she pointed at the platform.
At this time, one of the producers suddenly spoke to the nine participants using the loudspeaker. &x201C;The mission that you have been given this time is for you to build a complete house within twelve hours. You have another one and a half hours left to complete your task. Otherwise, all of you will be deemed to have failed the mission.&x201D;
&x201C;Aren&x2019;t you guys too cruel?&x201D; Jin Mingchen, who had just made his way up the bamboo platform, started complaining.
&x201C;How would we be able to finish building the house on time? We&x2019;ve barely managed to set up the bamboo platform and the surrounding walls are still bare wooden frames.&x201D;
&x201C;Stop complaining already. We can definitely do it if we all put in effort together. Those who are tired can just sit or lie down on the floor and rest for ten minutes before getting up to continue building with everyone else. We have to persevere and prove to the production team that as long as the nine of us are working together, there is nothing that we cannot do!&x201D; At this time, Qi Mo suddenly spoke up as he patted Jin Mingchen gently on his shoulder.
&x201C;I really don&x2019;t think I can move anymore. I will rest for a short while then.&x201D; Jin Mingchen was feeling a little sick and uncomfortable because he had been soaking in the sea water all day.
&x201C;Okay, go and rest.&x201D;
The rest of the participants then continued rushing out their work in an orderly manner. The men stepped into the water to start placing the bamboo in place, whilst supporting it with the rocks that they had collected earlier in the day. Jiang Yuning and Xu Beishen were preparing all the dried leaves and weeds for the rooftop.
The remaining participants continued working hard and they only lay down and rested for ten minutes whenever they were really too exhausted. After the ten minutes was up, they would get up automatically to continue working.
After seeing this, Jin Mingchen could not sleep anymore. He sat up on the bamboo platform and said, &x201C;I am not going to sleep anymore. I am going to help too.&x201D;
This time, all nine participants gave their best effort to try and complete building the house.
Time flew by really quickly and the bamboo house was slowly perfected bit by bit. At eight o&x2019;clock sharp, the little bamboo house finally had a decent thatched roof over it.
However, at this moment, a sound of something falling into the water was heard. Everyone was startled and as they looked around them, they suddenly realized that Jin Mingchen had already disappeared.
&x201C;Where is Mingchen?&x201D;
&x201C;Was he up on the roof to fix it? Did he fall into the water?&x201D; The crowd of people looked into the water immediately to search for Jin Mingchen and at this time, Jin Mingchen suddenly emerged from the water.
&x201C;I am sorry, I was really too tired. I fell asleep on top of the roof and I must have rolled into the water.&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning reached out her hand and pulled Jin Mingchen up into the bamboo hut. &x201C;It&x2019;s okay. You did really well today.&x201D;
Not too far away, the production team suddenly urged them again. &x201C;This is a friendly reminder that you only have half an hour left.&x201D;
As soon as they heard this devil&x2019;s voice, everyone jumped to their feet and got to work again even though they were all already at their breaking point&x2026;
The production team and crew could not help but sigh as they watched the scene that was unfolding before their very eyes. &x201C;All of them are victors today. It was really great to watch them push themselves and only rest for ten minutes before getting up to continue working again. They are all heroes because they persevered and refused to give up!&x201D;
The production felt anxious for them but they could not bear to rush them because they knew that the participants were all exhausted.
&x201C;This is the first time that I feel we might have been too cruel.&x201D;
Although the nine of them remained united until the very end, they were unable to complete the mission by half past eight that night because one of the walls of the bamboo hut was yet to be completed.
At this time, Jin Mingchen tried to negotiate for more time and leniency from the production team on behalf of the entire group. &x201C;Please just give us another thirty minutes. Just thirty minutes. If you give us another thirty minutes, we will definitely be able to complete the bamboo hut.&x201D;
&x201C;No, rules are rules&x2026;we cannot just go around it&x2026;&x201D; The production team hesitantly refused as they shook their heads despite Jin Mingchen&x2019;s protests.
&x201C;How about ten minutes? Just give us ten minutes! We do not want to give up just like this. We want to finish what we&x2019;ve started!&x201D;
Jin Mingchen was extremely serious today.
The director and producers got together to discuss before they finally decided to give the participants an extra ten minutes to complete their mission.
&x201C;Alright then, we will give you another ten minutes.&x201D;
As soon as Jin Mingchen got the answer, he ran back to the other participants immediately. &x201C;Everyone, let&x2019;s try our best to complete the mission now! We have been given another ten minutes to successfully complete our task.&x201D;
&x201C;Let&x2019;s give it all we&x2019;ve got!&x201D;
&x201C;All the best!&x201D;
Early the next morning, one of the participants started exclaiming out loud as soon as they woke up. &x201C;Look at the beautiful sunrise!&x201D;
At this time, the rest of the participants who were still lying down inside the bamboo hut quickly sat up and looked at the sea to watch the sun that was slowly rising outside the hut.
&x201C;What a beautiful sight&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;It is really beautiful&x2026;&x201D;
The nine participants stepped out of the bamboo hut and they instantly realized that the high tide had already receded and nature had left a beautiful gift behind for them. The beach was filled with small crabs running sideways and various other strange creatures from the sea.
Jin Mingchen was so amazed and excited that he started running after a crab on the beach.
The nine participants seriously amazed the director and the production team when they worked together and were so united during the extra ten minutes that they were given to complete the mission. After rushing and putting in so much effort, they finally completed the bamboo hut within the given ten minutes.
A short while after that, it started raining and pouring heavily. The nine of them camped inside the little bamboo hut and since they were all so exhausted, they all lay down on the bamboo platform and fell asleep without even bothering about maintaining their image anymore. They slept so soundly that they only woke up when the sunlight penetrated the little bamboo hut&x2026;
Subsequently, the production team came forward to announce the content that they would be recording during the day. &x201C;Each and everyone of you have already worked very hard last night. The next twelve hours will be very relaxing for all of you. You can lie down and relax by the beach, build some sandcastles, take a stroll along the beach, or even swim in the sea. However, you will also be required to entertain one very special guest who would be coming today. In fact, there are six different guests who would be dropping by today and each of them will be bringing different news to you. You would have to choose and make your decision wisely instead of getting led on by the fake news.&x201D;
&x201C;That sounds interesting&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;We will definitely treat them with hospitality and feed them all the grilled fish that we have.&x201D;
While the recording for the fourth issue of was still ongoing, it was already a new working day at Guangying Media.
An Yiqing and Lin Xuan arrived at Guangying Media early in the morning because they had to sign a contractual agreement with the television station for the upcoming variety program.
When Shen Yichen saw An Yiqing standing outside his office door as she knocked, he closed all of the contracts that he had in his hands and handed it over to his personal assistant before he motioned for An Yiqing to enter his office.
&x201C;Pass all of these contracts over to Vera. Ask her to go through them and select the resources that they want.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, Director Shen,&x201D; Shen Yichen&x2019;s personal assistant replied as she walked out of his office holding the stack of resources belonging to Jiang Yuning in her hands.
An Yiqing could not help but stare at the huge stack of resources that Shen Yichen&x2019;s personal assistant had in her hands. It would be amazing if those resources belonged to her.
Although Lin Xuan had repeatedly reminded her that she was going to focus on her acting career and avoid looking for shortcuts to fame, An Yiqing wanted to be popular. She wanted to have as many invitations and resources as Jiang Yuning. She did not want to depend on anyone else to obtain any resources.
&x201C;Director Shen, we can leave now.&x201D;
&x201C;Are you envious?&x201D; Shen Yichen suddenly asked An Yiqing because he seemed to have notice the expression that she had on her face.
&x201C;Sister Yuning&x2026;is really very lucky.&x201D;
Shen Yichen could not help but smile when he heard those words. &x201C;That&x2019;s because you have not met Jiang Yuning when she was still struggling at the lowest point in her career.&x201D;
