You Won’t Believe These 5 Bizarre Japanese Game Shows


Japanese culture places a high value on things like respect and kindness…unless you’re on one of their 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. 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!

3. Dotch

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. 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.

5. Kiss My Ass

The premise for this show is actually brilliant and I’m hoping 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. Guys 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…
