A Must-See Game Show

Its been 3 weeks since the new game show "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" been aired on ABC. I must say that we (especially Michael) has been hooked to this show. We all know how creative-yet-quirky-and-embarassing any Japanese game show can be.

Usually when you signed up for a game show (esp the new ones), you were not told what you'l be doing or where you'l be going. So imagine when you signed up for a game show and when you met up with the host, you were told that you're going to Japan. And once you arrived in Japan, you're told that you'l be going to a studio famous for their game shows. You get excited, thinking that, "cool! il get to see some Japanese gameshow" and then instead of being taken to the front door, you were taken to the back door. You might still think that its cool. You're getting the back pass. That is until the curtain was up and you found out that YOU are the contestant for the gameshow! And you're playing for USD250,000. Is that cool or what?

You can watch I Survived A Japanese Game Show,

Farina, i am back! Congrats on getting a bigger pad, looks nice the new place and u can even sit outside! I cant wait to hv a place of our own too ; ) I hate mozzies too esp during summer, Nora and I both hv allergic reactions to their bites, thus we always sleep under a kelambu and apply mosquit milk before bed ; ) I hard watch TV these days, i use to be an addict! But in belgium, they r so slow with many TV programmes esp the ones from USA, sedih babe. Well, enjoy the summer, here its pretty moderate, rains alot too. Big hugs for now

MXC is a japanese game show, I think they showing it on Spike. There's a few more, last time I saw one of the shows called "iron" something (can't remember the name). It's tough to finish each level. One of the american went there and she thought it was easy by looking at it but she failed to finish the first level. Only 4 - 6 people out of 80+ was able to finish the first level. Susah gila!
