This clip is from a show titled "Beautiful Women of China". The woman featured is bodybuilder Zhang Ping.
The two fairy women in the opening moments represent stereotypical notions of Chinese beauty.
I shall transcribe as best as I can.
(voiceover by Zhang Ping)
25 years ago, I made the right choice, that allows my beauty to persist even today. My beauty is derived from health, self-confidence, and perseverance. I'm Zhang Ping, a beauty from Shanghai. *I have my beauty* (the show's catchphrase).
[she comes out]
Zhang Ping: (reiterates the main things she said in the video intro).
Female judge #1 (in blue): We're all eagerly waiting for you to remove that concealing robe...
Female judge #2 (in white): I think, underneath that, she definitely has something special for us!
Male judge #1 (younger bald bespectacled guy): You're not going to perform some classic acrobatics, are you?
Zhang Ping: Nope. Today, on this show, upon this stage, I am here to display a special kind of beauty.
Judges: What kind?
Zhang Ping: A physical kind. The beauty of strength.
Female judge #2: Of strength?! Wow...
Male judge #2 (older balding bespectacled guy in red and black): Would it be rude, I wonder, to inquire about a woman's age...
Female judge #2: Would you object?
Zhang Ping: Not at all. I'm 54 this year.
(judges do double-take)
Female judge #2: Let's see your talent display, then.
[Zhang Ping does bodybuilding routine with 2 hunks. Judges keep make remarks like "Oh my goodness!" "Good heavens!"]
Senior female judge (no idea why she and the other guy are like, up there on high): I like this woman, she's fantastically beautiful! She's my idol!
Senior male judge: Your idol? Hahahaha...
[more hawtness ensues. Zhang Ping finishes her routine. For reference, we are now at about the 4 minute mark.]
Senior female: They say, beauty is found in youth. I say, for women life begins at 50! This is our role model. This is the way to go!
Senior male: From this, we can see, age is really not a limitation for anyone.
Female judge #2: Could I ask you a question first... I want to ask, the two hunks behind you, fellas, do you find this big sister sexy?
Hunk: Too sexy. Too beautiful.
Female judge #2: What kind of beauty do you feel it is?
Hunk: I find that her beauty is natural, it's about health and strength.
Male judge #2: I agree with that last point, that it's about "strength". But as for "natural" or "healthy"... without expending a huge amount of effort, practically going against the laws of nature, training to the extent of risking your life, even... is it even possible?
Zhang Ping: I've been doing this for 25 years...
Male judge #2: Let's hear it!
Zhang Ping: ... and back then, it was a right choice I made.
Female judge #2: What were you working as back then?
Zhang Ping: Initially, I was working for Phoenix Automatic Cars, as an ordinary employee. I felt that bodybuilding is an art form, and so I wanted to learn it. My husband was in the military. I lived inside a military camp. And that kind of environment is a very conservative kind. So a lot of people couldn't understand...
Female judge #2: What sort of things did they say about you at the time?
Zhang Ping: They said, "How come there's a member of this household, wearing underwear, exposing herself completely in the public eye? If it were my household, I would definitely not approve." Later, my husband reminded me that he had expressed his belief. He said to me, "You're a mother - you ought to be a good wife, and a good mother."
Female judge #2: So after your husband told you that, why didn't you change your mind?
Zhang Ping: Female bodybuilding is very beautiful, extremely so to me. Since I'd made up my mind, I had to succeed. I had to get the gold. So, I told my husband that. We talked for several days. In the end he had a condition: If I could, within 6 months, win a gold at a competition, he would support me wholeheartedly, give you all the help you need. And if I couldn't...
Female judge #2 (together with Zhang Ping): Stay home and cook. Be in the kitchen.
[laughter all round]
Zhang Ping: I said, Ok, no problem.
Male judge #1: And in the end?
Zhang Ping: In the end, I worked very hard, I won 5 gold medals.
Female judge #2: Those were nationals, were they?
Zhang Ping: That's correct, national level championships. And then in Asia, I was champion 11 times, and worldwide I'm ranked 10th.
Female judge #2: After training for 25 years, what's it been like for you and your spouse? How has this affected you both? How is it that even I'm interested in this now? Eh, Yingda? (addressing Male host #2). I'm being influenced by you!
Male judge #2: You're stealing my line, you are.
Female judge #2: What does he think about you taking part in our show here?
Zhang Ping: He's very supportive. He said, if I come, I'm representing the women of China, a kind of Chinese femininity that mixes gentleness with toughness.
Female judge #2: Wow, so that's your husband's judgement. I have to ask the men here. When you see female bodybuilding...
Male judge #2: A special kind of beauty...? I... I wouldn't say so directly.
Female judge #2: You mean to say it's a different path from that of traditional beauty, I suppose?
Male judge #2: Yes, I mean, you see those two men at the back. If their muscles are shaped like that, well, I find that aesthetically pleasing.
Female judge #2: Yes, you two young fellows are really attention-grabbing.
Male judge #2: But, I feel that femininity... must it necessarily conform to that ideal as well? Because we know, for a woman to train to this result, it's that much harder. I'm seeing, your back, your lats... and your deltoids... it's... it's indeed stunning. Suppose one day, for "Beautiful Women of China", all the contestants train to this degree... is it still feminine?
Host: Well, Mr. Yingda has posed such a question to you, a question of feminine beauty. So let me ask you, how do you view this matter?
Zhang Ping: Everyone has his own point of view. On one hand we have a soft and gentle kind of beauty. On the other, we have a kind of healthy beauty. I feel they're different.
Host: Now it's time for you judges to make your decisions. The first vote? (I couldn't catch the name)
Male judge #1: Uhhh... I shall support her.
Zhang Ping: Thank you.
Host: Mr Yingda?
Male judge #2: ... I think I'm going to go with the Fairy Mother and Daughter (the traditional beauties).
Host: And you, Ms. Yang Lan?
Female judge #2: Dear, dear... oh dear! I tell you, you're not only challenging a male judgement of female beauty - you're challenging the way females regard each other too! And see, up on stage there, you see a kind of ancient classical beauty, the kind where you don't even show the teeth when you smile, very genteel and demure. And over here is strength, willpower... Good heavens, this is such a dilemma!
Zhang Ping: No need... no need...
Host: Ms. Yang Lan, your choice is!
Female judge #2: ... I'm still going to go with the Fairy Mother and Daughter.
Host: Right, thank you. At the moment, the votes are 2 to 1, in favour of the Fairy Mother and Daughter!
Male judge #1: Let's hear Ms. Ma's opinion, why don't we. What is your choice then?
Female judge #1: Well, I've just recalled something from my childhood, when I was in elementary school, I once questioned, "On what basis do we say that some things, boys can do while girls can't?" And now I ask the same question, about men and women. Therefore, my decision is, I will support. [To varied reactions from the judges]
Host: And now, the last 5 seconds are given over to... audience voting! Members of the audience... please vote! 5... 4... 3... 2... 1! Voting has ended. 96 votes, plus 82 votes, makes... 178 votes.
[82 males, and 96 females, chose to support Zhang Ping. This, however, is insufficient to beat the score of the traditional Chinese beauties, which was 232. It appears that the contestant before Zhang Ping scored lower than her.]
Zhang Ping: Whether I win or not here isn't important. It matters more that I took part, and I took my joy, my healthfulness, and spread it to all the other women around me. Because health is the one true form of wealth for all humankind.
[She receives a send-off, and there're hugs all around.]
Female judge #1: Very impressive, thank you.
