FINAL FOUR PLAYERS SET FOR SEASON FINALE OF
"I SURVIVED A JAPANESE GAME SHOW,"
TUESDAY, AUGUST 5 ON ABC
Andrew Kelly-Hayes Eliminated on Last Night's Episode
"Episode 107" -- The craziness continues for the final four Americans (Meaghan Cooper, TX; Bilenda Madison, NC; Donnell Pitman, IL; Justin Wood, AL) competing in Japan when the season finale of "I Survived A Japanese Game Show" airs TUESDAY, AUGUST 5 (9:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Andrew Kelly-Hayes (Boston, MA) was eliminated on last night's episode.
Here are the games in the season finale:
MAKING NEW FRIENDS IN JAPAN
Contestants compete as individuals on the streets of Tokyo to complete five tasks, all involving random strangers. The person with the slowest time goes home. Tasks include getting a business card, getting someone to draw a moustache on the contestant and getting three people to do the "wave."
Contestants wear a giant sponge suit and try to absorb as much water as possible from a giant bowl, retain it through an obstacle course, and then squeeze out the water into a receptacle. The player with the least amount of water in the receptacle loses.
CROWNING A WINNER GAME: FINAL MAJIDE!
Contestants compete head-to-head in a giant obstacle course comprising the hardest tasks from ALL the previous shows. They are spun, then have to tricycle across a narrow bridge over water, smash giant eggs with their butts, crawl through a lot of flour, scale a Velcro wall, eat sticky mochi balls and finally, swing through the correct breakaway door. The first one to hit the finish buzzer is the winner.
"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.
