The show's popularity and social commentary has drawn attention of academics and foreign media, and after concerns from Chinese regulators in 2011 the show's format was tweaked to de-emphasize factors such as financial wealth.
After a short break from March 2017 to May 2017, If You Are the One returned in a revised format.
From that point forward, Fei Cheng Wu Rao was to curb mentions of financial wealth and sex, and a third host was added: a party school psychology teacher named Huang Han, who was seen to 'balance' the show to make it more grounded and less controversial as well as adding more banter between the three hosts.
The revised program scrubbed contestant information such as bank account information and salaries etc.
On December 31, 2016, the Guangdong High Court overturned the decision on appeal by ruling that "Fei Cheng Wu Rao" did not infringe on another individual's copyrights and therefore the producers changed the name of the show back to "Fei Cheng Wu Rao" On April 1, 2017.
Jiangsu Television announced that the final episode of If You Are The One in the original format had aired on March 25 with the filming of shows suspended since January, announcing a temporary suspension of the show as it undergoes reformatting for a relaunch late in May.
Wang said that the show is a window into Chinese society at large, and that through it, "you can tell what China is thinking about and chasing after." The show's focus was intended to be young professionals.In 2013, the show began broadcasting on SBS 2 (now SBS Viceland) in Australia, in an hour-long version with English subtitles provided by SBS.If You Are the One has been a ratings success in China and is now the highest-rated show for Jiangsu TV. The show is viewed internationally over the internet and satellite television.In addition, concerns were raised that some of the contestants on the show were not who they said they were, and that the TV station was 'planting' contestants to make controversial remarks to increase ratings.Chinese authorities looked upon the show unfavourably, asserting that it was spreading the 'wrong values'.
