Chi Pu has received many compliments from contest organizers and the Chinese audience, who consider her someone that always tries to overcome her own flaws while competing in the show.

She also showed her creativity as the show progressed as she integrated acrobatic movements and pole dancing in her performances throughout the show.

Chi Pu said in her speech during the final night: "I feel I'm so lucky that I have a chance to be with Ella. She's not only my teacher, not only my sister, but she's also my roommate, my close friend, and my soulmate."

Reflecting on her journey with the show, Chi Pu said the show "changed her life." She also considered other members in the show her "second family."

"Now is the end of the show and I feel like I miss you guys already. Thanks for everything," she said.

Chi Pu is an actress and pop singer. She was honored on the Forbes’ list of the Asia Pacific's 100 most influential digital stars in 2020.
