Brother Sharp (Cheng Guorong) was invited to appear on a Qinghai Satellite TV program with his brother, uncle and aunt. Still unaccustomed to being a celebrity, Brother Sharp was noticeably nervous. He chain-smoked six cigarettes to calm himself, gripped his aunt's hand tightly, with his legs shaking and eventually left the studio early hiding in the lobby and refusing to come back. Brother Sharp's uncle defended insinuations that the family was cashing in on their nephew. Brother Sharp has made three paid appearances in Guangdong runway shows and t-shirt signings. The uncle claimed to never have initiated any commercial activities and has turned down numerous offers.
