NEW GAMES FOR EPISODE SIX OF "I SURVIVED A JAPANESE GAME SHOW,"
AIRING TUESDAY, JULY 29 ON ABC
Cathy Nardone Eliminated on Last Night's Episode
The craziness continues for Americans competing in Japan when "Episode 106" of "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" airs TUESDAY, JULY 29 (9:01-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Cathy Nardone (Staten Island, NY) was eliminated on last night's episode.
Here are the games in the new hour:
YOU STAND STILL! NO YOU STAND STILL!
Two teammates spin in chairs at opposite ends of the playing field and then have to cross past one another to collect a ring with three keys. They then meet back in the middle on two smaller spinning disks to unlock the lock. The team that unlocks the lock and returns to their starting chairs in the fastest time wins.
CLOTHES ON, CLOTHES OFF!
Each contestant tries to change three times into his or her unique Japanese costumes. The contestant with the fastest cumulative time wins.
"I Survived a Japanese Game Show" is a hilarious, behind-the-scenes and ground-breaking show giving 10 Americans � many of whom have never traveled outside the United States � a real, life-changing adventure by whisking them away to Tokyo to compete in the ultimate Japanese game show. Each week a player will be eliminated and the final winner will take home $250,000.
Guiding the players through their stay in Japan are host/tour guide Tony Sano ("Spring Break in Japan," "Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight"), an American actor fluent in Japanese; a house mother where the players live and resident pot-stirrer, Mamasan; and the witty game show host Rome Kanda ("Pink Panther," "Saturday Night Live"), who leads the American contestants through all of the zany games.
The executive producers are Arthur Smith and Kent Weed (A. Smith & Co., "Kitchen Nightmares," "Hell's Kitchen"), David Sidebotham, Karsten Bartholin and Tim Crescenti, from a concept by Babyfoot APS Denmark.
"I Survived a Japanese Game Show" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound and Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. A TV parental guideline will be posted closer to airdate.
