** Kimberly Whittaker (Philadelphia, PA) Eliminated **

"Episode 202" -- The craziness continues for Americans competing in Japan when episode two of "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" airs WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24 (9:02-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Kimberly Whittaker from Philadelphia, PA was the contestant eliminated in last week's installment.

"I Survived A Japanese Game Show" is a hilarious, behind-the-scenes and ground-breaking show giving 12 Americans 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. Rome Kanda ("Pink Panther," "Saturday Night Live") is the game show host leading the contestants through all of the zany challenges; Mama-San is the house mother and resident pot stirrer; and Judge Bob is the rarely dynamic but always entertaining referee of the games.

Here are the games in "Episode 202":

PARTY IN MY PANTS � Players wear a large pair of pants and have to try to collect tennis balls that are being fired at them in the pants. The team with the most points in 2 1/2 minutes wins. All players will use "pooper scooper" tongs during the game.

PUT SOME CLOTHES ON BOB � Each team has to find five designated items of clothing in a flour pit and move those items one at a time along a conveyor belt to place them on a mannequin � who, they're told, is Judge Bob. They must return to the flour pit via the conveyor belt and then tag their next teammate. The team that completes the outfit in the fastest time wins.

LOTION, LOTION, WHAT'S THE COMMOTION? Two contestants have to complete an obstacle course while covered with lotion in the fastest time. The obstacles include climbing over the "lotion hills," climbing steps, carrying an egg on their heads, a foam bath, more lotion, and finally climbing over six giant Sumo wrestlers who are laying on the ground.

The executive producers of "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" are Arthur Smith and Kent Weed for A. Smith & Co. ("Kitchen Nightmares," "Hell's Kitchen"), and David Sidebotham, Karsten Bartholin and Tim Crescenti for Babyfoot APS Denmark. The series 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.
