But you pretty much only know about the normal ones. For example, like The Price is Right, which has been running for over 60 years, but not every game show in the world is based off of simple and fun things like spinning a wheel or even safe things. No, no they're not. No, in fact there have been some game shows that are so outrageous in not only what they do to the contestants, but also what they make the contestants do, that they're either going to make you gasp, cringe, or just straight up gag. (gagging noise) So, today I'm going to tell you about the most outrageous game shows that have ever aired, and seriously, you're going to want to prepare yourself for this one. It's freaky. Here are the 10 craziest game shows of all time. Number one is human tetris. Let's start off with a game that mixes one of the greatest old arcade classics of all time with a strangely ridiculous amount of flexibility and the requirement to avoid walls that are quickly moving towards you. That sounds safe! Also known as Brain Wall or Hole in the Wall, this game originated in Japan and it involves contestants wearing helmets, elbow pads, and knee pads, and I'm going to explain why. See, the contestants are required to desperately contort their bodies just so they can fit through the tetris-shaped piece holes in the styrofoam in the walls that are moving towards them. So, either you pull a hammy or you're subjected to a claustrophobic nightmare. That sounds like something I'd like to subject myself to. No! Now this game might sound strange to many of you, and trust me, it does me as well but it's now quite common pretty much all over the world. Personally, I'm not flexible and I would never try this game because what's the point of winning a car when you broke your back in the process of trying to win it. Yeah, you see my friends, that's called logic. More of these contestants should use it. Number two is Distraction. Well, the name of the game pretty much says it all in this one. Released in the United Kingdom in October of 2003, this game show is hosted by British comedian Jimmy Carr and only ran for one series. And it'll make sense as to why in just a minute. Yeah, that one series is all that was needed to nab a spot on this list. The object of the game was to answer more trivia questions than the other players. Which seems harmless, except that each new round introduced a distraction. But these distractions either made the contestant uncomfortable or actually delivered real pain so that the contestant would be, you know, distracted. These distractions included nudists running around, electric shocks, and tattoo needles. And the thing is, the contestants never knew when the distraction was going to happen. Sometimes they occurred during the round, and sometimes they were activated when the contestant thought that they had the right answer. Either way, it created a pretty successful concept that was both hilarious and bizarre, except that it was cancelled because you can't cause people real pain. But I'm going to be completely honest, you offer me a Lamborghini, feel free to hook up whatever you want to me, jumper cables, whatever. Just, shock shock shock, Lambo Lambo Lambo. That's it. Number three is The Marshmallow Game. See, some people think that marshmallows are best for campfires and s'mores, but the Japanese think differently. This game originated in Japan and is yet another one to find its way into Western culture. In fact, it was actually featured on the Ellen Degeneres show. It's actually pretty simple, an elastic ties the contestant's head to a wall behind them, and then they basically try to stretch forward without any use of their hands until they successfully consume a marshmallow. (growling sounds) This is an incredibly silly game and oh so awesome in so many ways. Not only do you get to eat a marshmallow, but you also get to entertain everyone who watches you by contorting your face into ridiculous expressions. (groaning sounds) Holy God, you're welcome for that visual. Number four is Tore! And on to the dangerous one. Another game invented in Japan, this is basically the real life version of the games that were played in the Saw films. Yeah. Just like many similar trivia shows, the game requires you to answer trivia questions. However, unlike those programs, for every answer a player gets wrong, they're wrapped up a little bit more and a little bit more until they resemble a mummy. Then if you get enough wrong and the wrapping reaches your head, they quickly stuff you into a sarcophagus. Yay for claustrophobia! The game also gets stranger from there, but that's pretty much the most terrifying part. Oh, the Japanese. Fear, entertainment, and comedy, it all just gets mixed in together into a weird entertainment stew. Got to love it. Number five is El Gran Juego de la Oca. This game is basically just a giant 63-square board game in which the contestants are the pieces. El Gran Juego de la Oca was originally created in Italy and then ran off and on between 1993 and 1998 out of Madrid, Spain. It translates to, and this is my favorite, The Game of the Goose. The game involves rolling electric die and then moving that many spaces while you try to land on the 63rd space and thus win the game. However, before the 63rd space, there's a challenge that has to be overcome or a change that occurs in the game. How devious! What kind of challenges? Well, for example, on some spaces gross foods would need to be consumed at a fictional Chinese restaurant. Others require the player to mud-wrestle a professional wrestler and some involved being shaved bald or waxed. Ooh, sign me up for this one, I've already completed one of the challenges! My head's so cold. Number six is AKBingo, A variety series that knows how to push the boundaries of entertainment, AKBingo was hosted by Japanese comedy duo, Owarai. Owarai, which translates into Bad Boys, consists of spectacularly bizarre contests which occur between contestants. They involve quizzes, puzzle solving, and physical feats that are just out there. As if trying to be kind of a Fear Factor on steroids, the game requires contestants to eat really gross delicacies, as well as playing a very strange form of dodgeball that really doesn't have any rules. One competition actually has two players comparing the strength of their lungs by blowing into either side of a long clear plastic tube and trying to get a dead insect into the other opponent's mouth. (gagging sound) I don't want to talk about this any more, I'm not playing this game Number seven is Tutti Frutti. Originally developed in Italy and called Culpo Grosso, or Big Score, Tutti Frutti premiered in Germany in January of 1990 and ran for a total of 140 episodes. This bizarre and very controversial game show caused quite a stir, drawing outrage from viewers who weren't expecting the program to have the level of, well, nudity and sexuality that it did. Now, the game was pretty innovative at the time, technologically. However, when the objective of the game was to get as many points from guessing correct answers as you can so that you can remove an equal number of clothing articles from a stripper, things are... (clears throat) yeah, a little bit controversial. I've never seen this game, are replays available online? I'm asking for a friend. Number eight is Don't Forget Your Toothbrush. On air for only 2 seasons between 1994 and 1995, Don't Forget Your Toothbrush originated in the United Kingdom. But, over the next 6 years it was recreated in 14 other countries. So, I think it's pretty safe to say that it was popular. What was unique about this game is that every member of the studio audience who attended tapings of the show were instructed that they had to bring with them their passport and a packed bag. Additionally, they had to be certain that they had the next week off of work. Why so much preparation? Well, because contestants were picked randomly from the audience and instead of their prizes being awarded weeks or even months later, they actually received their prize, always a vacation, immediately. Like, right now. So, in other words, if you won a trip to Jamaica, you were on a plane that night. The producers felt that part of the fun of the show was the insanity that at the drop of a hat, your plans just changed. That is absolutely insane and a lot of fun, but I got to be honest, that is also a huge gamble. Like, if I was one of the people in the audience that did not get picked, which the majority don't, you just took the next week off and you're sitting at home, just making sad faces because you're at home and not in Jamaica. Number nine is The Intercept. This game originated in Russia. All the normal stuff comes out of Russia. From the country that brought us the most dangerous form of roulette comes one of the most controversial and craziest games that you could possibly play. Called The Intercept, this game show takes real people and offers a wonderful grand prize of a new car. Well that's not so crazy Matt, how do we win the car? I'm glad you asked. You have to steal it. Seriously, you have to steal it. Not only that, you have only 35 minutes to steal the car and manage to escape the real police officers who are trying to catch you. Ah, that's not so bad, if I don't win I don't win.
