NEW GAMES FOR EPISODE 4 OF "I SURVIVED A JAPANESE GAME SHOW,"
AIRING WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, ON ABC
** Debbie Kaufman (Easton, CT) Eliminated **
"Episode 204" -- The craziness continues for Americans competing in Japan when the fourth episode of "I Survived a Japanese Game Show," airs WEDNESDAY, JULY 8 (9:02-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Debbie Kaufman (Easton, CT) was eliminated on last night's show.
"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 204":
SNAP ATTACK! �
Sitting at a table with an obstructed view, the contestants release a tightly stretched bungee one-at-a-time in order to snap opposing players across from them. Two hits win a zone and the first team to win three zones wins the game.
PAINT SPLASH MADNESS �
Contestants dressed in painter suits step onto spinning platforms to collect dropping liquid into cups that they then must transport and toss into a receptacle attached to another spinning teammate. The team with the most liquid by weight in the receptacle after 3 minutes wins.
ALIEN TOOK MY TEDDY BEAR �
Contestants are dressed as green aliens and must cross two conveyor belts and three spinning platforms, while trying to transport as many stuffed bears as possible in 3 1/2 minutes. If they fall into the powder pit at the end, they have to start again.
