Game shows aren’t rigged because they don’t have to be.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could win a game-show just by walking up the stairs?

Japanese game shows have a reputation for being a little on the bizarre side, and recently one came out with just that premise: just get up the stairs and you win. There’s just one catch: the stairs are coated in something ridiculously slippery.

Five contestants in colorful lycra bodysuits, helmets, and bare feet were tasked with making their way from the bottom of a wide, slippery staircase up about thirty short stairs.

After nearly ten minutes and dozens of slippery disasters sending contesting shooting back down to stair one, a winner finally made it to the top.

I laughed until my sides hurt as I watched. Not your typical game show, exactly, but it was great.
