G4 PRESENTS "NINJA FEST 3" ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, INCLUDING FIVE NEW EPISODES OF "NINJA WARRIOR" AND "ATTACK OF THE SHOW" TOKYO SPECIAL

New "Ninja Warrior" Episodes Feature Returning American Competitors Levi Meeuwenberg and Brian Orosco and Newcomers Mark Witmer and Lucy Romberg, the First-Ever American Woman to Attempt the Course

LOS ANGELES � November 3, 2008 � You've seen Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn take to the skies in fighter jets, swallow whole hot dogs, juice oranges while running on treadmills, and even host the show blindfolded, but can they be Ninjas?! The two popular hosts of G4's "Attack of the Show" join the four winners of G4's American Ninja Challenge on a journey to Japan to face off against the merciless obstacle course that has defeated thousands before them. G4 premieres the nightlong programming event "Ninja Fest 3" on Wednesday, November 12 from 6:00-10:30 PM, ET/PT.

TV's hottest night of ninjas kicks off at 6:00 pm ET/PT, with a special episode of Attack of the Show, "Kevin and Olivia Attack Tokyo," where the dynamic duo go on a journey through Tokyo, introducing viewers to the many things that make this city one of the coolest on Earth. The special goes inside Japanese hipsters' favorite hang-outs, as well as a close look at some of their favorite pastimes and gadgets. Kevin and Olivia introduce viewers to interactive photo booths, visit a sake factory, get flesh-eating carp pedicures, encounter flesh eating fish, eat whale genitals, and drink at some of the smallest bars in the world, at the unique Golden Gai district. Kevin also gives viewers a glimpse into the sumo culture, as he dons authentic sumo gear and gets into the ring with a real sumo wrestler, while Olivia drives one of the elusive underground Dekotora Trucks.

Directly following, G4 presents a one-hour special, "American Ninja Challenge 3 Preview," at 7:00 pm ET/PT which highlights the journeys of Kevin and Olivia and the four amazing American competitors as they prepare to take on Mt. Midoriyama, a course that only two people have ever successfully completed. This year's contestants include: American Ninja Challenge's returning winner Levi Meeuwenberg from Michigan, who returns to take on the course that defeated him in stage three earlier this year; Minneapolis resident Mark Witmer, a former University of Minnesota gymnastic team member; Brian Orosco, a San Francisco commercial real estate broker; and Luci Romberg, a Hollywood stuntwoman and the first American female to attempt the course. The special also presents a behind-the-scenes look at the Japanese production team that plans the Japanese broadcast of Sasuke and the tournament itself, offering fans an inside peek at one of the world's most grueling and challenging competitions.

Five new episodes of G4's hit competition series "Ninja Warrior" will premiere back-to-back, from 8:00-10:30 pm ET/PT, once again bringing viewers face-to-face with the superhuman Sasuke course at Japan's Mt. Midoriyama, where athletes and amateurs alike come twice a year to prove their mettle. The four-stage course is designed to challenge each fiber of a competitor's body and spirit, and most will not make it through even stage one. Only by completing the entire course, can a competitor emerge as Sasuke's "Ninja Warrior." Viewers will witness the performances of Kevin, Olivia and the four Americans as they vie for a place in "Ninja Warrior" history.

Rounding out the evening at 11:00 pm ET/PT, will be a wrap-up special hosted by Kevin and Olivia that will highlight the best � and worst � moments of the competition, as well as special behind-the-scenes footage.

Since premiering on G4 in the fall of 2006, "Ninja Warrior" has become a viewer favorite with a legion of devoted fans. Each "Ninja Warrior" tournament features extraordinary amateurs competing alongside world-class athletes from around the globe. Only two competitors in "Ninja Warrior" history have ever completed the grueling four-stage course, and only a handful of Americans (including Olympic athletes Morgan Hamm and Paul Terek and G4's American Ninja Challenge winner Levi Meeuwenberg) have ever made it to stage three.

For viewers who like their physical competition tough, grueling and completely unforgiving, there is only one place to be all evening Wednesday, November 12 for every adrenaline-saturated moment of action. "Ninja Fest 3," only on G4.
