Japanese culture is largely based on respect and order…except when it comes to game shows!
The game shows on Japanese TV are bizarre, hilarious, and they always end up with people being humiliated (usually with a big smile on their faces). Hey, it’s the Japanese way, who are we to judge?
Take a look at these 5 wacky shows and enjoy the videos as well. Enjoy!
1. Candy or Not Candy
I really hope this show makes it to the U.S. Contestants bite into objects that might be made of candy (yay!) or might just be a shoe or some other everyday item. Fun!
2. Dero! Dero!
In this show, people must answer questions and solve puzzles. The added bonus? They do it in scary situations, like a room that’s slowly filling up with water. Yikes.
If you win this game show, you get to enjoy a delicious meal prepared by a chef. If you lose, you have to watch the winners eat while you starve. Good times!
4. Escape a Fart
Yes, you read the name of this show correctly. Contestants on this show fart, which viewers can see in yellow, and they try to spread it around the room as much as possible. Okay!
5. Kiss My Ass
The premise for this show is actually insane, and there is absolutely no way it makes its way across the Pacific to our shores. Girls put their butts into plastic-shaped holes so no one can see their faces. Their boyfriends then have to inspect the butts and guess which one belongs to their girlfriend. I bet this show gets pretty ugly on a regular basis.
I don’t know about you, but now I’m tired of American television…
