posticon New TV Gameshow for Takeshi's Castle Fans!


Hi Keshi Heads! emoticon

I hope you don't mind me posting on here but I thought you'd like to know about this new TV show being made in the UK for a major broadcaster... I think it will appeal to fans of the original Takeshi's Castle series! You can apply to be a contestant for the next couple of days- it should be a lot of fun! Here's some information if you are interested:

UK CONTESTANTS WANTED FOR EXCITING NEW GAMESHOW

'Chicken' contestants will be taking a flight to a mystery location, where they will take part in a series of physical fun challenges with big name celebrity hosts. Contestants don’t have to be fit or strong to take part but the gameshow has only one rule: DON’T FLINCH!
The series is produced by Stellify Media and Sony Pictures.

It takes 2 minutes to apply here: www.stellifymedia.com/gameshow

GOOD LUCK! emoticon

Hi, welcome to the forum!

I see you found me on Instagram as well, very good emoticon

I can't take part in the series (too young and wouldn't be allowed to anyway), but I'm very excited to see how this goes. Best of luck, and I'll definitely be watching (if possible from the USA) emoticon

I've read about this, it's another Netflix commission which is the more interesting thing from my perspective, nice to see Netflix doing a bit more non-drama stuff.

Thanks for posting Jan, best of luck to the whole production team. I'll definitely be watching when it appears on our screens.

I have always wanted to be a contestant on Takeshi's Castle as I am from and living in UK but I am worried about how many games and how long I will be staying in this mystery location for.

From what I’ve read, this isn’t going to be anything like Takeshi’s Castle, so don’t get your hopes up!

It looks like a separate entity from Takeshi Castle (just knowing that the theme of the show is not flinching is enough to see it’s gonna be different from TC), but could still see it being good if executed right.

Dunno why but the whole “mystery location” and “fun physical challenges” makes me thing this will be like I Survived A Japanese Gameshow. The whole chicken link could help too emoticon

Let’s hope they've taken on board the mistakes they made with Can’t Touch This. Mainly: being exactly the same every single week.

Huh that description turns me off a bit as it seems less like Wipeout and (likely, have never watched it) more a Jackass spin-off. I don’t just want to sit watching people trying not to jump because of seeing something pop out of the wall. Hopefully it’ll be more creative than I’m guessing. They did say physical challenges so it migh have more to it than that. I also hope that they won’t put a ton of emphasis on the hosts being celebrities, and the bets they make.

Oh and if you’re reading, Jan, please make sure they change the challenges often! That’s what made Can’t Touch This (a potentially entertaining show) into a huge turnoff for me.

Re:


They've finally got around to putting this out after 15 months, here's the trailer:

Looks a bit more like old C4 gameshow Distraction but could be funny. 'Big name celebrity hosts' seems to be stretching the trutg a little though!

Wow, I was thinking about this a few weeks ago and had assumed they cancelled it!

Good that the hosts don't seem to be well-known, but the show itself must get old pretty quickly. It's just trying not to flinch while various things are thrown your way, right?
