Game shows are a standing tradition in all cultures. Different versions of every game imaginable exist in the world and are broadcasted to millions of people through their living room TVs. Shows such as, Total Wipe Out, Ninja Warrior, or The Chase have long filled time slots in TV channels because they are somehow still widely popular.
The shows are probably some of the last withstanding actually live entertainment television we still get to watch besides sports. That leaves little room for mistakes or bloopers. There’s very little editing involved and most of the time it’s a throw of the dice.
