DESCRIPTION: (from TBS's press release, March 2014) Jackass star Bam Margera is taking his wild stunt ideas to a whole new level with Bam's Bad Ass Game Show, an over-the-top competition series premiering Monday, April 14, at 10:30pm (ET/PT) on TBS. Each week on Bam's Bad Ass Game Show, competitors will vie for $10,000 by facing off against each other in incredibly demented, potentially dangerous and occasionally painful challenges. The eclectic contestants range from a kung-fu master to a roller derby queen to a magician. Each contestant must withstand the outrageous stunts, including climbing inside a barrel for a game of Human Bowling, enduring a barrage of firecrackers and being turned into crash-test dummies on an inverted zip line. The loser of each challenge is eliminated until there's only one contestant left standing to take home the cash prize. Helping design and demonstrate the various challenges are Bam's friends and cohorts: Tim O'Connor (Bam's World Domination), Seth Meisterman (Jackass 3D, Viva la Bam) and Brandon Novak (Jackass, Viva la Bam), who occasionally winds up worse off than any of the contestants.
