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 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.

State media editorialized against the show on television, in print, and online.

Six months after the show first aired, officials from the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television stepped in to regulate the show.

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.

Jiangsu Television station has promised to appeal the ruling.

Between November 19 to December 10, 2016, a series of specials titled "1vs24" was aired where the roles of the genders were reversed with 24 Males taking to the podiums to face a single woman.

It was first broadcast on January 15, 2010, and originally aired twice a week on Saturday and Sundays until December 2014.
