Previously, I posted a blog about the music show that I started hosting on a television channel in Hong Kong called TVB. Before I even started hosting the music show, I actually got the opportunity to foray into television via another program.
TVB has a subsidiary channel called J2 which caters to a younger audience via their programming and choice of content.
I was approached by one of the producers from J2 about an idea he had for a tv show. The show would be called Big Boys Club. The concept of the show was explained to me. I would be one of three hosts on the show. It would be a talk show format similar to The View, except instead of a bunch of women sitting around chatting about entertainment, current events and interviewing guests, it would be a group of guys.
The idea seemed pretty interesting to me.
Next thing you know, I find myself as one of the host on this new program called Big Boys Club. Mind you, I’ve never hosted a show of this nature ever, let alone to do it in Cantonese.
The second episode of the show ever, each one of the hosts invited a friend to come on the show and we did some good ol’ fashioned male bonding (on television). We shared our past relationship experiences i.e. ex-girlfriends, breakups, heartbreaks, etc.
Later on, these friends of ours would be returning guests and eventually even sometimes be guest hosts of the show.
It was definitely a Big Boys Club.
Well, Big Boys Club recently taped it’s 200th episode. To celebrate the joyous occasion, we invited our friends from the 2nd episode to all catch up and revisit all that’s gone down in the last 200 episodes since the show has been on air.
Clockwise: Starting from me, Bob (host), Wai Wai (friend of Bob), Steven (friend of William), William (host), Kent (producer), writer, KT (a good friend of mine).
In a nutshell, we sat around, ate, drank (more…)
