Chapter 47: I Suggest Increasing the Difficulty
At the dining table, Bell and Scarlett were eating breakfast quietly.
Looking at Bell eating happily, Scarlett Johansson hesitated for a moment and said.
“There’s something I want to discuss with you.”
Bell froze and looked up at Scarlett.
“What’s wrong? Why are you being so serious?”
“Actually, I am going to shoot a movie soon. I want to invite you to act with me. I wonder if you have time.”
Actually, after Bell signed the contract, Scarlett had already thought about it.
It was simply impossible to gain five million followers in three months.
But the contract was signed, and Scarlett couldn’t say anything else.
Although she felt that it was impossible, she still decided to help Bell.
She found a very reasonable explanation for herself.
Bell had once saved her life.
There was an old saying in China: a drop of water should be returned with a spring.
The Americans also understood the concept of returning a favor.
Moreover, Bell did not just do a simple favor, he saved her life.
As for other personal feelings, Scarlett kept thinking about it, but she was denying it.
How could he not know what the other party meant?
He was not a movie actor. Although he was quite famous, he was famous on Wilderness Survival.
No matter how suitable it was, it was impossible for a layman like him to play in a movie. At least for now.
Scarlett Johansson was clearly relying on her status in the industry to help him increase his fans and popularity.
In these three months, even if the movie was not completed, Bell could gain a lot of fans with Scarlett Johansson’s fan base and marketing. There was still hope for five million.
But in the end, Bell shook his head.
“Thank you, Scarlett, but I still think the Wilderness Survival program is more suitable for me.”
Perhaps others could not stay on such a program for long, but Bell was different.
He had the system and enough fans.
Bell was confident that he could survive in all kinds of harsh environments.
Moreover, Bell realized that Wilderness Survival seemed to be abnormally popular in this world. Some of the top survivalists were not inferior to those top celebrities.
It was because of this that Bell was determined to continue on this path.
He wanted to rely on his strength to stand on the same stage as Scarlett Johansson.
Seeing Bell refuse, Scarlett Johansson was helpless.
After all, this was a rare opportunity.
But before she could speak, Bell waved his hand and explained, “Alright, I know you’re worried about me and want to help me quickly reach the stipulated number in the contract. But even if I really go to film a movie, no one will accept a layman like me. A contract made on such an unstable popularity won’t last long.”
“I still need to develop in my specialty.”
Bell explained to Scarlett.
Hearing Bell’s reason, Scarlett Johansson calmed down.
She knew that Bell had a point.
Although she could increase the number of Bell’s fans quickly, the problem would eventually arise. After all, he did not rely on himself to increase the number of fans.
“But to get so many fans is really a challenge.”
“Alright, didn’t I say that I am confident in this matter? Just believe me.”
Seeing Scarlett Johansson’s worried expression, Bell smiled and comforted her again.
In front of the overly calm Bell, Scarlett Johansson was like a child.
Scarlett wanted to say more, but Bell’s phone suddenly rang, interrupting their conversation.
He picked up the call and heard a voice on the other end.
“Hello, Mr. Bell, I’m from Wilderness Survival. Where are you now? Do you have time this afternoon? We want to discuss the next recording with you and do an interview as well.”
“In the afternoon?”
He looked at Scarlett.
Seeing that the other party did not express anything, Bell said, “Alright. I’ll send you the address later.”
“Alright, Mr. Bell, we won’t disturb you anymore. Someone will contact you later.”
The production team hung up.
Because of the interruption by the production team, Scarlett Johansson did not continue the conversation.
The two of them ate breakfast quietly.
At 2 PM, the members of the production team arrived at Bell’s residence, which was Scarlett Johansson’s villa.
It was still the same beautiful female host from before.
“Hello, Bell, we meet again.”
The host greeted Bell warmly.
Bell was the most important person in their show.
Once any dangerous scene appeared on the show, as long as it was shown to Bell, he would definitely be able to give the correct demonstration, and the popularity of the show would be adjusted again.
The leaders even wanted to focus this show on Bell only.
After all, rather than letting the amateurs take the risk to attract viewers, why not create a program for Bell and let everyone see what real Wilderness Survival was?
However, this matter was not decided yet.
Therefore, the host did not tell Bell that her main goal was to do an interview like the previous time. After all, Bell was the first successful contestant.
Another thing was to discuss the location of the next round with Bell.
The beautiful host finished the basic interview and asked Bell.
“Bell, we’re going to do the next round soon. I wonder if you have any suggestions about the next survival location?”
Although she seemed to be asking for a suggestion, it was actually asking Bell where he wanted to go.
The beautiful host wanted to give Bell a more familiar place.
This could not only reduce the risk factor, but also let Bell stand out faster in front of everyone.
But Bell shook his head.
“I don’t have any good suggestions for now.”
“However, I think the difficulty of the past two times is too low. We can increase the difficulty appropriately. Perhaps it will be more enjoyable.”
Bell scanned the remaining popularity points on the system interface.
He still had a lot left, enough to exchange for at least four to five skills.
It was enough for him to deal with all the difficult environments on Earth.
Moreover, he had to sign a contract now and increase his popularity crazily.
Of course, he had to choose a more eye-catching place to have such a large number of fans.
