Guess (variety show)

Guess Guess Guess (Mandarin Chinese: 我猜我猜我猜猜猜; Hanyu Pinyin: Wǒ Cāi Wǒ Cāi Wǒ Cāi Cāi Cāi) is a television show, currently hosted by Jacky Wu, A-ya and another temp host. It airs weekly in Taiwan on the network television station China Television.

Each show usually consists of 2 segments, "The truth cannot be faked" 真的假不了 and "Do not judge a book by its cover" 人不可貌相, but every now and then, especially during festivals, there will be specially organized segments.

In the first segment, "The truth cannot be faked", 3 persons will be invited, each claiming to be able to accomplish something seemingly unbelievable. However, only 2 of them are telling the truth. Invited celebrities will then have to distinguish ("guess") the one who is lying, failing which they will be sprayed with cold mist.

In the second segment, "Do not judge a book by its cover", there will be a mini-contest, with 5 people vying for a title, such as "Prettiest schoolgirl", and invited celebrities are again asked to guess which one of them will be the eventual winner. The winner is usually picked by a panel of experts.

Many Taiwanese celebrities have been first "discovered" by their participation in this show, such as the winners of the mini-contests held in the segment "Do not judge a book by its cover". Some budding Taiwanese artistes have also used this show as a launching pad for their hosting or singing careers. Lastly, invited Taiwanese celebrities used the show to promote their latest albums, books, shows, etc.

History

GUESS started in July 4, 1996, but suffered low viewer ratings initially (apart from its pilot episode), until Jacky Wu took over the helm as the main male host on 2 November 1996. He has been the main host since, while his 2 female co-hosts have changed throughout the years. Famous former female hosts include Rainie Yang, A-ya, Barbie Hsu a.k.a. Big S, Little S (Barbie Hsu's younger sister), Matilda Tao, S.H.E's Selina Ren, Hebe Tian and Ella Chen, etc.

This program remains one of the most popular long-running variety shows in Taiwan.
