Returning Chinese reality show where stars have to do their own chores branded fake after ‘Cleaning Auntie’ was spotted on screen


Chinese reality show Back to the field revolves around the stars He Jiong, Lay Zhangactors Huang Lei and Peng Yuchang and actress Wendy Zhang, moving to a rural part of Xiangxi, Hunan Province, to experience life in the most basic ways, like growing and cooking her own food, building her own furniture, and cleaning after her.

The show, now in its sixth season, quickly won the hearts of viewers, delighted to see these stars away from the glitz and glamor of showbiz, while doing all their chores without the help of their assistants or helpers. .

Or so we think.

Recently, there have been reports claiming that the stars haven’t actually gone back to basics for the show, sparking disappointment among their loyal fans.

Or is Huang Lei the “housekeeping aunt”?

Apparently, an eagle-eyed viewer said that when the camera caught Huang Lei entering the kitchen, it accidentally captured a lady, who is not part of the cast, cleaning next to the sink. .

Later, a netizen who allegedly lives near where the show is filmed said, “It was shot near my house, and my mom said [they] hired two aunts to do the dishes.

Since then, many netizens have started to turn against the show, with one saying “No wonder it’s not fun to watch anymore. They don’t even do their own dishes. It’s all for show.

Another savvy netizen pointed out, “That’s why every time [they] to end [their] meal, [they] would go to another room to chat and play games. When they get up the next day, everything is clean and tidy again.

A netizen also mocked the show, saying, “This is the life I want! Asking someone to wash my dishes for me.

Who should be arrowed to do the dishes then?

Although the show has yet to respond to the allegations, one of the Back to the fields directors, Zhang Hangxi, apparently refuted the rumors when he wrote on Weibo: “Housekeeper? Are they talking about me?”
