Ninja Warrior!

I'm a fan of Ninja Warrior, which can be seen on G4 and SpikeTV. It's a pretty crazy Japanese Game show where hundreds of competitors attempt to complete a giant and outrageous obstacle course. What I love is that the competitors range from men and women from all walks of life - olympic athletes, bus drivers, gas station managers, postpost office workers, firefighters, actors, models, etc. There's a lot of nice eye candy as well :) My favorite is the fisherman Makoto Nagano - One of the only men to complete all stages of the Japanese Game show (from what I know there is only one other that did so before him...and I'm not sure if anyone else has completed it...but don't quote me because I could be wrong =P). He's been a long time competitor and I've seen him in several episodes. He's very humble and is always smiling. I was very very very happy and excited for him when he completed the last challenge. Omedetoo!

hope this ninja warriors will be available in the phils soon. thnx for youtube attachment, the action is so fun.. Here in the phils, there is also a japanese game show challenge being shown locally, Takeshi's Castle.. but according to my brother who once visited japan, Takeshi has long been canned since the 80's or 90's(i think .

I love Japanese Game shows ( I even used to watch Samurai drama )! The show reminds me of Takeshi's Castle, so funny and sooo fun!

chino - lol sometimes...I haven't been a camwhore lately because I've been very busy...but it definitely seems like it since my bf is a photographer & graphic designer and uses me as his guinea pig :)
