In America, we have reality TV shows that follow the lives of polygamous families or game shows that require people to answer trivia questions in hopes of winning a million dollars. Even our weirdest shows (like My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding) pale in comparison to foreign reality TV, so hold onto your seat because these television shows aren’t something you hear about every day.
1. Sasuke (Ninja Warrior) - Japan
Japan is infamous for its strange reality shows, and this popular one is no exception. Sasuke is essentially Wipeout on steroids and has been on the air since 1997. Even Olympic athletes have trouble completing this intense obstacle course that includes climbing nearly vertical walls and swinging from poles, and naturally, even more than watching the contestants win, we love watching them fall on their faces.
