Although the blind date shows promoted by Chinese TV recently have attracted large numbers of viewers, more than 80 percent of university students argue against the "money worship" promoted in these programs, according to an investigation in Nanjing.

Students from a university in Nanjing began an investigation among 420 university students. The result is considerable according to the 400 valid questionnaires, including 180 boys and nearly 220 girls.

One of the questions was a real example from a blind date program. A male cycling fan asked one of the "girlfriend candidates," "Would you like to go cycling with me?" The girl said, "Well, I would rather cry in a BMW car than laugh on a bicycle." The survey asked for respondents opinions of the girl.

About 7.5 percent students chose "I can't agree more", 8.7 percent chose "Basically agree," 58 percent chose "Disagree" and 25.75 percent students chose "Disgusted."
