Has anyone ever seen a Japanese game show in which a bunch of young ladies have to eat a bunch of gross shit, like live octopus legs for instance? I remember seeing it a while back and I can't for the life of me remember what it was called or anything. And please don't ask, "Have you heard of Google?" Because I have, and it was unhelpful in this matter. Thanks a bunch.

Are you sure it was a game show.

@LordXavierBritish: What else could it have been dude? It was totally non sexual, plus I saw it on TV. I guess it could have been a "Variety Show" or whatever but I'm pretty sure it was a game show.

Survivor: Japan

or

Fear Factor: Japan

@MiniPato: It took place in a tv studio, like a colorful clean happy place. Not like on an island or something. I don't know, I guess it could have been fear factor: Japan, but I don't think so. The contestants were exclusively young women.

Anyone remember that crazy wipeout type show on spike TV that had insane dubs over everything? Or was I the only one to watch those insane shows...

Better known as Takeshi's Castle in Japan.

@BestUsernameEver: That show was awesome. Then there was Hey! Spring of Trivia also on spike. And Banzai on some other network. I think I found the one I was looking for by the way, maybe. I think it's called Onedari Muscat or something. It's not really a game show, since the girls don't really win anything, but whatever.

@BestUsernameEver: Hahaha wow, that actually might have been it, that looks way fucking better than the thing I found. That's the best dude.

@BestUsernameEver: @PolyesterKyle: That's what I was thinking, it might have been a variety show and not a game show. They often have silly segments like that. EDIT: I'm pretty sure that was just a segment from a variety show, and not a Japanese version of Fear Factor.

Or if you're an OG watcher, Most Extreme Elimination Challenge (I never liked the contraction they made for the name).

EDIT: Oh and also a lot of the stuff they did towards the end when the show was just being called MXC was not terribly funny and more just stupid, so there's also a bit of a negative association there too.
