After months of speculation, Raymond Lam and Carina Zhang have confirmed that they are filming the fifth season of travel show Viva La Romance with other showbiz couples. The series sees the wives travel together, while their husbands stay put in a room to observe what the women get up to.
The other couples involved are Qin Hai Lu and Wang Xin Jun, Jiang Qin Qin and Chen Jian Bin, along with Zhou Jie and Zou Kai.
After announcing their involvement with the show, Carina posted a list of 'rules' that they adhere to to keep their marriage alive.
She wrote: “My dear hubby, we’ve been married for a year and a half. There’s still a lot of delicious things that we haven’t eaten together, movies we haven’t watched and places that we haven’t gone to together. Although you’ve never loved me less, even for a second, I still want to fall deeper in love with you. If you’d like to do the same, sign on the dotted line.”
Her list included the following: 1) going to the beach together, 2) feeding each other desserts, 3) being silly together, 4) saying ‘I love you’ once a day, 5) hugging and kissing each other daily, 6) not laughing at Carina’s singing, and 7) not making fun of Carina when she speaks Cantonese.
15 minutes after that post, Raymond updated his Weibo with a signed copy of the agreement, writing: “Of course I’m willing to do so.”
This rare display of affection online was totally out of character for the couple, who are known to be fiercely protective of their married life.
