Most reality TV shows focus on a younger generation fighting to debut in their early 20s. Examples include “Youth with You” (青春有你) and “Produce Camp” (创造营).
But “Sisters Who Make Waves” (乘风破浪的姐姐) brings a totally new concept.
In these other talent shows, most contestants are new to the entertainment industry. They work hard to be seen by the audience. At the end of the show, they get famous and debut as a group.
The process and end goal of “Sisters Who Make Waves” are similar to other TV reality shows. However, “Sisters Who Make Waves” features already well-known women celebrities in their thirties.
The theme song from Season 1 is “Ms Priceless”. It is a great song displaying the strong attitude of independent ladies.
乘风破浪 is a Chinese idiom, which means to brave the wind and the billows. It describes the courageous fighting spirit that allows one to overcome all obstacles.
The slogan for this season is “三十而奕，落子无悔”. 落子无悔" comes from an idiom, “人生如棋，落子无悔." This means that our life is just like chess.
In a chess game, you can’t retract a false move; in life, don’t regret what you do.
This calls to women to “restart” their lives in their thirties. It asks them to be fearless of the unknown and face challenges without regret.
This year, “Sister Who Make Waves'' hosted 30 female celebrities. The eldest was 58 and the youngest was 30 years old.
All of them are Chinese actresses, television hosts or singers. These ladies had new life experiences and made friendships.
In the end, they all get a real taste of the strong power of teamwork.
For many of them, it is highly challenging to learn difficult dance moves. With each episode, we can see them transform into more confident figures shining on stage.
Society defines how women should live to have a “complete” life. But if social norms are created by the society, then they can be destroyed by the society.
The celebrities in “Sisters Who Make Waves'' have diverse lifestyles. They share inspiring stories from their lives.
This reality show can inspire many women not to focus on what a woman should do, but rather what she wants to do.
The contestants do not define or restrict themselves because of their age. And all women should aspire to that.

To all ladies: chase your dreams and live your life as you want it to be to the fullest.
