Hurry Up, Brother Episode 9, December 5, 2014 Recap and Review
Today’s Theme is the Princess Desert Battle
Out of all the episodes so far, I find this one to be the most exciting and most original. Because I have been an avid fan of running man and watched since episode 1. They use the same games in “Running Man” and in “Hurry Up Brother” making it boring since I have already seen the game before. Another thing is that even though they use the same background music, I feel that the background music doesn’t fit in with the situation they are in. When they use the background music, it just reminds of Running Man. I think they need to at least change the background music to something unique to them. However in this episode all the games except the last game are all new and the place that they film the game in is the desert which I find to be unique. Even though I have seen the final game in “running man” angelababy’s moves makes this episode shocking.
Here is my recap
All our princesses were dressed really nicely today
Guest for this week is Sie Yi-Lin (谢依霖) people call her “hold住姐” (which roughly means sister hold on) She is currently in the c-drama “Love Weave Thrrough A Millenium”. She’s been in a couple episode on “Hurry up, Brother” and I love her playfulness and the jokes she makes.
The other is the supermodel and actress Lynn Hung. With her impressive height she looked amazing in that orange coat and fuscia minidress making me also want to get one. Supposedly it was very cold filming at the desert and the main host applauded Lynn for wearing such little clothes for the show.
Finally there is Shen Ling who is a talk show host and came to substitute for Wong Cho Lam.
They are split into three groups each head by a princess. Angelababy with Wong Bao Qiang and Shen Ling; Lynn with Ryan Cheng and Deng Chao; Yi Ling with Michael Chen and Jerry Lee. One of the male member is a special powered knight. In each round, the group that wins would be given a clue as to who the special knight may be and they get a chance to switch out a knight from any of the teams. The final winner will be crowned the princess of the desert.
While traveling to their first site, “Sister Hold on” says she is the princess of the desert. Jerry Lee going with the flow says he’s the prince of the desert. “Sister Hold on” asks Michael Chen what he will be and he replies King of the Desert which earned in boos from both Yi Lin and Jerry.
In the first round they run around a large square in the desert passing through obstacles until they tear of the name tag of the princess from the team ahead of them.
Winner was the Yi Lin’s team in which she got the Clue 1= the special knight can do 30 push ups? (I am not sure what the direct translation is. My chinese is limited) However she tells others that it is a birthmark. She switches Ryan Zheng to Angelababy’s team and Shen Ling to Lynn’s team.
They then ride on camels to get to their next location which is wac-a-mole.
The two opponent teams would try to grab as much corn as they can while the princess tries to prevent the mices from stealing her corn by whacking them in a two minute time period. The PD says that if they get hit they need to relinquish the corn they have in their hand and go back in their hole before attempting again. Michael says that of course they would go back in their hole if they get hit. Why would they continue standing up and endure getting beaten? Deng Chao counters that saying people would endure getting beaten just to grab the corn.
When baby tries to reach for the corn she wasn’t tall enough and staff says that she would need to jump but Lynn easily reaches for it because of her tall stature.
33- Yi Lin was the fiercest one
30-baby they all said baby turned crazy
24-Lynn kept on saying sorry as she hit everyone. Den Chao joked that because she was so tall, it was difficult for her to hit moles and it would be easier to for her to catch angels intead.
Even though Yi Lin’s team won, her second tip was the knight has cross dressed as a women before. Yi Lin was so angry, she threw the tip card on the ground. All of them have dressed up as women before so it wasn’t a great tip.
She then switched Deng Chao’s to Angelababy’s team and Ryan to Lynn’s team.
In the third game one team would run on top with a pail filled with sands and empty out their pail at a container at the destination.
However the pails have holes in it. The team who accumulate the most sand at the end wins. The opponents would have to kick underneath to trip the competing group. What is funny about this game is that those at the bottom said they felt they were at a disadvantage, since those on top can step on them, getting them very anxious.
Those at the bottom kept complaining it was much more strenuous being underneath trying to kick those on top and that every time someone is running on top it was their worst nightmare. Angelababy said it seemed like a group of bulls ran over her. Deng Chao says angels and demons are only different by a slim chance. You are angels on top but become demons at the bottom.
There were lots of funny pictures from this game:
Angela’s team won by a landslide and got the third clue: the superpowered knight is a father. Angela then switches Jerry to Lynn’s team and Ryan who was switched since the beginning gets switched once again to Yi Lin’s team.
In the third game and final game, the knights gets blindfolded, carrying their princess on their back while the princess rips of their other princess’s name tag. Each Princess would have their knight’s name tag on them until every knight’s name tag has been teared off, then they would have their own name tag. The team who still has their name tag at the end would win.
Being in the same modeling business, Angelababy has met Lynn for more than eight years and she and Yi Lin tried to get Lynn to team up with them.
Jerry comes out to help put the name tag firmly on Lynn but was shocked by static electricity. All the member started making fun of him for say he got electrified (as in by love).
At first Angelababy and Lynn teamed up however after Angela still had 3 nametags but Yi Lin’s team only had one tag left, Lynn and Yi Lin teamed up. I finally get to see how amazing Angelababy was. Even being corner by two groups and with her name tag grabbed multiple times she was able to escape danger multiple times. They ended up finding out that the knight with secret power was Deng Chao with the power of reflection: the person who rips off the name tag is the one that gets elmininated and since Lynn ripped it off, Jerry from her team was eliminated. Later Yi Lin’s team was finally eliminated leaving Lynn with only her name tag on while Angela still had two name tags for the final match. However Lynn eventually won over angelababy ripping off her nametag twice defeating the odds with her long arms.

I thought Lynn Hong would be very fierce. Probably because of her supermodel appearance, tall stature and her tw drama “Material Queen” I got the feeling that she’s fierce but she such a sweetie on the show and is quite girly.
I think this episode was exciting and definitely deserves a watch. If I still had to choose I would choose (Running Man) as a whole over (Hurry up, Brother). I tend to laugh more with Running Man and just find it more amusing and surprising. However I watched three episodes of Running Man in a row yesterday so don’t want to finish up all the episodes so I checked out the chinese version.
