Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 586 – Celebrity Wen Dongjun
If it weren’t for the tax subsidies, Feng Yu would not accept Zhang Ruiqiang’s request. In his previous life, Feng Yu had heard of many enterprises that like to recruit retired soldiers, handicaps, etc. But were these enterprises really trying to help them?
Maybe some of them were. But there were some that wanted to make use of this tax subsidy policy. They only need to give out some wages and exchange for more savings from the tax subsidy.
This situation will stop after the next batch of soldiers retires. As for now, it was still an issue for the government and military officials to assign jobs for the retired soldiers.
Feng Yu called Fu Guangzheng and Li Zekai to tell them about this arrangement. Both of them were supportive of Feng Yu’s decision. This would increase their supermarket’s reputation and still get some benefits. They also decided to implement the same thing in other regions.
There were a lot of positions in the supermarket that does not requires high education. Some positions do not even need the employee to be literate. The employee only needs to work hard.
Both Fu Guangzheng and Li Zekai were glad that Feng Yu could reach an agreement with Bing City Government in so fast. With this contract as an example, it would be easier for them to negotiate with the other local governments. Maybe they would complete all the negotiations by in May, and Tai Hua Supermarkets would be open by then. Even if the shopping malls could not fill up their spaces with tenants by then, the high customer’s volume would be able to attract interested parties, and the rental will also increase.
After arranging someone to do the follow-ups, Feng Yu could finally return home for a break.
When Feng Yu arrived home, Wen Dongjun came to look for him. These few days, Wen Dongjun had been hanging around outside even though it was snowing heavily outside.
It was because the episode where he had participated was aired!
Although Wen Dongjun had only appeared on TV for a short 2 minutes, most of the time, it was him introducing himself. Also, he was the only participant that did not even answer a question correctly. But no matter what, Wen Dongjun was on TV, and it was still a CCTV program. This was the most popular and widely discussed variety show.
In Wen Dongjun’s district, he was now a celebrity.
Mainly, he was Wen Deguang’s son. The son of the district’s chief. The whole neighborhood was talking about him after the episode was aired.
After several rounds of discussions, this incident had become the following version.
Not everyone can participate in the program . The ones that can join were professors from renowned universities and students from overseas. All the participants had some backgrounds.
How could a university student be allowed to participate? That’s because he was Chief Wen’s son and the top student of his university. If not, how can he qualify to participate?
What did you say? Our district has kids attending Beijing University and Huaqing University? Even if they were attending these top universities, but not every student was outstanding. Furthermore, Chief Wen’s son was attending Beijing Technological University. It was also a good university, and many of the county’s top professors were teaching in the university.
You said that he did not even answer 1 question correctly and had embarrassed himself?
Then can you answer those questions? Those questions in the program covered all sorts of topics, and it was selected randomly. Do you know what randomly is? The questions are all picked by the computer. Computers are a very high-tech thing. Have you even touched one before? That thing had select the questions randomly, and it all depends on luck. Can’t you see that we know the answers to some of the questions where the professors could not answer?
Furthermore, Chief Wen’s son had said that he was from our district on the program. He had made our neighborhood proud. If you think you are better, then you can participate too.
Wen Dongjun, who did not even get one question right, became the district’s celebrity. He was not mocked by others. Instead, he was the pride of the district. Even Wen Deguang did not felt that his son had disgraced him. He was proud of him.
When Wen Dongjun knew Feng Yu had returned to the district, he immediately looks for him to flaunt.
“Do you know? On my way to our place, 6 people waved to me. 6 people!” Wen Dongjun proudly said.
You are so proud because some people waved to you?
“What did they say to you? Did they call you the King of Quiz?” Feng Yu snickered.
“That’s not important. The important thing is that they recognized me. In our district, there might still be some people who do not know who my father is. But everyone knows me. Even the kids and those elderlies know me!” Wen Dongjun points to himself.
“Ummm…… all of them know you are that King of Quiz.”
“Can you stop calling me King of Quiz?”
“Sure, King of Quiz.”
Wen Dongjun was furious. Why can’t you be nice to me?
“I was there to help you, and you are still not grateful to me? Do you know that program rating’s had spiked because of me? The newspaper had also mentioned that the episode I was on, had the highest ratings. The rating is even higher than CCTV’s !” Wen Dongjun emphasized.
“Top ratings? How do you know?”
“China’s Entertainment Newspaper. Don’t you like to read newspapers? You missed it? I knew it! Here. This is a copy of the newspaper. I had brought it with me.” Wen Dongjun took out a copy of tattered newspapers.
WTF? This moron even brought along that copy of the newspaper with him?
Feng Yu looked at the papers. The 4th episode of had the highest ratings in CCTV. There was a short introduction of all the participants of that episode, including Wen Dongjun. But although the ratings were high, it was still from breaking record.
There were more satellite channels now, and the TV viewers had more options. Breaking previous record would be hard. But to get the top ratings on that day was already an achievement. This proves that the program was a success!
Feng Yu wants to call Chief Jia to congratulate him and at the same time to remind him to remember this favor.
It was worthwhile to have product placement and name sponsorship in a top TV program. The money invested by Feng Yu was worth it.
“Fine. Now I have seen the article, what else do you want from me? King of Quiz?” Feng Yu asked.
“You are close to CCTV. Are there any other opportunities to appear on their program again? Help me arrange one more time. Why not let me participate in again, and this time, you let me know the answers in advance. Let me clear all the questions!”
Feng Yu pushed Wen Dongjun’s face away from him: “Don’t even think about it. You really think that being famous is a good thing? Didn’t you notice that people are looking at you as if you are a monkey in the Zoo?”
Wen Dongjun paused for a while and then got furious: “No wonder they were laughing when they see me. I thought they envied me. They actually treated me like a monkey?! Oh, do you know Liu Jichuan had returned?”
Translator’s notes: Liu Jichuan was the one who killed the bear with Feng Yu and Wen Dongjun in the first few chapters. He had the intention of hurting Wen Dongjun during their hunt and was stopped by Feng Yu. Later, he joined the military and left.
