Chinese people paying strangers to drink alcohol. Why?

A Beijing tech company has created an app that allows users to pay for ‘surrogate drinkers’ and 100,000 people signed up within 24 hours of it’s launch.
The service was introduced on Thursday by eDaijia, China’s largest mobile-based designated driving service provider, reported the South China Morning Post (SCMP).
The app, called eDaihe, links 'surrogate drinkers' with users looking to hire. The user pays the drinker to follow them around for an evening, consuming their alcoholic beverages along the way.
Like Uber, eDaihe is location-based so users can choose their surrogates based on proximity, as well as how much liquor they can drink and their profile descriptions.
Residents wanting to make money as a surrogate can create a profile. That profile must include their name, gender, location, a photo and how much they can drink, along with a short introduction.
