@feihong: 很好!

For #6, the only additional detail that I might have added is that 竹幼婷 is usually in Taiwan where she can't watch the show. She says this really quickly and it was hard to hear. But the host, 窦文涛, also said even "your Jay Chou" was in the show. I had no idea that the show is blocked in Taiwan until I heard it here but it makes sense.

The other thing that I liked about this episode is that you get to hear 3 different accents: a more standard one from 窦文涛 (his bio says he‘s a 山东人 born in 河北), a Hong Kong one from 马家辉 and a Taiwan one from 竹幼婷.
