But just the fact of being a foreigner in China can make you feel like a celebrity sometimes.

Little did I know what I was letting myself in for.

Conquering nerves is rewarding It's six weeks later.

I find myself crouching on a small, circular platform, clutching a microphone, breathing heavily and trying to listen to the voices of the hosts and the previous contestant, but understanding nothing.

I'm surrounded by scaffolding, cables and stage machinery, dimly illuminated by fluorescent lighting.

On the show, it looks as if I could speak fluent Chinese.

In reality, this was an effect created in the editing room, and nearly every question I was asked had to be either repeated or translated into English by one of the more experienced foreigners on the show.

Suddenly the entire set starts to rotate around me and my insides begin to melt.

I feel like I'm trapped inside a Transformer which has just woken up.

I’m not a Chinese graduate and there is no language requirement to go to China, so I’d only been learning for four months when the show was recorded in mid-December.
