Plot Synopsis

Americans are sent to Japan to compete on the fictional game show, "Majide." Even though "Majide" does not air on Japanese TV, it includes all of the common elements of typical Japanese game shows -- mostly relying on wacky, physical challenges instead of trivia questions. In each episode the contestants compete in two events, like Conveyer Restaurant, Big Bug Splat on Windshield and Big Chicken Butt Scramble. The second event is an elimination game with the loser being shipped back to the States. Justin Wood (Trussville, Alabama) won the first season and took home $250,000.
