I Survived A Japanese Game Show is being described by ABC as a show within a show. The reality game show takes ten Americans and whisks them away to Tokyo, Japan. In Tokyo, the ten Americans take part in a Japanese game show, where the final winner receives $250,000.
While the contestants are in Tokyo, they will be guided by host Tony Sano, house mother Mamasan, and game show host Rome Kanda. The ten players are Mary Greenawalt, Andrew Kelly-Hayes, Bilenda Madison, Cathy Nardone, Darcy Sletager, Donnell Pittman, Justin Wood, Meaghan Cooper, Olga Medvedev, and Ben Hughes.
Two of the games that the contestants will face on the premiere are “Why Is This Food So Hard To Eat” and “Big Bugs Splat on Windshield.” In “Why Is This Food So Hard To Eat,” a contestant must eat food attached to the head of a teammate, who is running on a treadmill. In “Big Bugs Spat on Windshield,” contestants must dress up in a bug suit and launch themselves onto a giant car windshield.
I Survived A Japanese Game Show premieres on Tuesday, June 24 from 9 PM to 10 PM ET on ABC.
