"Episode 207" -- The craziness continues for Americans competing in Japan when the fifth episode of "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" airs WEDNESDAY, JULY 29 (9:02-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Jamie Lewis (Fairless Hills, PA) 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 207":
SOUR MILK FOR KITTY
Three teammates who are dressed as cats wearing bowl helmets and standing on shaking platforms try to transfer milk relay-style into a receptacle. The team with most accumulated milk in 3 1/2 minutes wins the game.
BIG FOOT BANG BANG
One teammate is put in a giant shoe and suspended by a wire while another teammate swings that person into giant balloons teed up one-at-a-time by another teammate. Meanwhile, the opposing team has a goalie dressed as a giant cactus and he or she is pulled by two teammates into position to either block or pop the incoming balloons. The offensive team that scores the most goals in 4 minutes wins the game.
YOU LOOK FUNNY STUCK ON A WALL!
In this favorite of fans, two contestants wearing Velcro suits jump on a trampoline to throw themselves at various body pattern outlines and try to get the best match within each outline. The first contestant to win four points wins the game.
