You can attend some popular TV dating shows in China such as "You Are the One" in Jiangsu Satellite or "Take Me Out" in Hunan Satellite. These two TV dating show where all kinds of beautiful ladies are getting here to find their soul mates are very hot in China. "You Are the One" has great influence on the world, and many foreigners come here to find their dream lovers.

I wanna say that Maggie Q is not a Chinese. She was born to a Polish-Irish American father (originally based in New York) and a Vietnamese mother.

No, those shows do not influence the world greatly, such activities are not popular outside of China.
Only foreigners who are very interested in chinese ladies attend those shows.

I've never heard of these shows, and I'm in China.

But then, I don't need to rely on a TV show to pick up women here, so...

I bet you can't speak Chinese. Otherwise it is impossible not to have heard of that show.

Nope, not yet I start lessons next week, after everyone's back from the holiday.

I'm taking Mandarin lessons, but about half of my coworkers speak Cantonese and are trying to convince me to learn that instead.

In the end, though, I didn't watch TV in the states and probably won't watch it much here either, so even if I heard of it in passing, I don't think I'd know much about the show itself.

The people in those shows seem want to get marry in a rush.
It is completely different from dating in western culture and other asian countries.
even taiwanese and singaporean dating are very different from china's.

That is a "show", so it does not mirror real life.
However it is true that many Chinese women will not date you if you don't want to get married.
