Who wants to be a millionaire's spouse? (2)

"The requirements for the female candidates are that they be college graduates who are between the ages of 20 and 35 years and be 1.6 to 1.75 meters tall," he said. "They will face a panel of judges who will assess them according to their appearances, psychology, ability to manage money and their views on marriage."

Many people have called the Chengdu-based Tianfu Morning Post to ask about how they could enter their names into the competition. Meanwhile, sichuan.scol.com.cn, a Sichuan website, conducted a survey and found that 54 percent of the respondents to the poll said the competition was an insult to women.

A woman surnamed Liu managed to become a candidate for the competition but decided not to take part in it in the end.

"I am 30, which is old by Chinese standards," she said. "But I decided to pursue pure love without taking money into consideration after having second thoughts. In addition, I cannot accept the fact that most of the millionaires are divorced but want the candidates to be virgins."

Many netizens made fun of the candidates, calling them material girls.

Cheng Fusheng, founder and CEO of the club, said: "There is no difference between a millionaire who advertises for a spouse through an agent and an ordinary person. Nobody is being forced to join."

Of the respondents to sichuan.scol.com.cn's survey, 18 percent said they endorse Cheng's views, saying: "The millionaires and the candidates have the freedom to choose and be chosen as long as they do not violate the law."
