Tales From A Broad

My year of teaching English in Japan is up. Next mission: backpack Asia before going home to the U.S.A. Currently HOME!

...and nothing like kielbasa in the rear.

My sister asked me if I would participate in the beloved Japanese reality show, "Most Extreme Challenge (called 'Takeshi's Castle' in Japan)," since I'm in the country. For those who don't know, the show is a Japanese game show which is broadcast across countries all over the world--in America, it's on Spike network. As the program is in Japanese, the program is voiced over by English commentators, and is broadcasted on Spike TV.

People humiliate themselves for a shot at fame. Notably, couples jump over massive, rotating logs to get to the other side of a lake, resulting in men losing their balance and landing on their gonads.

Other games include:
Brass Balls: Get across a shaky bridge holding a brass ball sent to you without falling or getting shot by one of the resident snipers

Get Hard: Crawl on eighteen million cubic feet of wet quick-drying cement to get to the other side and grab a flag before you get hard.

Check out these stats (infertility, humiliation, missing testicles and other miscallaneous injuries haven't been included):
41 people broke their ribs
35 concussions
19 broken jaws
2 fractured skulls

I did some homework and found out that the show got canceled. Maureen, I guess your physical therapy sessions will just have to wait.
