JUSTIN WOOD OF ALABAMA IS THE CHAMPION OF ABC'S "I SURVIVED A JAPANESE GAME SHOW

Justin Wood (Trussville, AL) became the champion - and $250,000 richer -- on ABC's "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" during last night's Season Finale. "I Survived A Japanese Game Show" is the hilarious, behind-the-scenes and ground-breaking show which gave 10 Americans - many of whom had never traveled outside the United States - a real, life-changing adventure by whisking them away to Tokyo to compete in the ultimate Japanese game show.

Guiding these players through their stay in Japan were host/tour guide Tony Sano ("Spring Break in Japan," "Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight"), an American actor fluent in Japanese; a house mother where the players lived and resident pot-stirrer, Mamasan; and the witty game show host Rome Kanda ("Pink Panther," "Saturday Night Live"), who led the American contestants through all of the zany games.

The two games in the Season Finale were:

ELIMINATION GAME: SQUISHY SQUISHY!

Contestants wore a giant sponge suit and tried to absorb as much water as possible from a giant bowl, retain it through an obstacle course, and then squeeze out the water into a receptacle. The player with the least amount of water in the receptacle lost.

CROWNING A WINNER GAME: FINAL MAJIDE!

Contestants competed head to head in a giant obstacle course comprising the hardest tasks from ALL the previous shows. They were spun, then had to tricycle across a narrow bridge over water, smash giant eggs with their butts, crawl through a lot of flour, scale a Velcro wall, eat sticky mochi balls and, finally, swing through the correct breakaway door. The first one to hit the finish buzzer was the final winner - Justin Wood.

The executive producers are Arthur Smith and Kent Weed (A. Smith & Co., "Kitchen Nightmares," "Hell's Kitchen"), David Sidebotham, Karsten Bartholin and Tim Crescenti, from a concept by Babyfoot APS Denmark.
