The Almost Impossible Game Show was an American adaptation of the British format of the same name that was extremely difficult to beat; the contestants were given 40 lives… and usually still didn't win.
Each episode of this outlandish series featured six neon-clad contestants taking on simple, yet hilarious difficult games. To win, these brave contestants had to complete four of the six games without running out of lives. If they failed a game, they had to do it again… and again… and AGAIN. Contestants didn't compete against each other, but against the game itself. With challenges such as riding a tiny bike across a balance beam over a mud pit, putting on a pair of trousers while sprinting on a giant treadmill and inflating a balloon to the point of popping using only the power of your buttocks, contestants would never know what would happen next. Winning contestants received a trophy and $500 in cash.
The original version of The Almost Impossible Game Show (which also featured The Rubberbandits as commentators) aired on ITV2 from 1 October (October 1) 2015 to 11 May (May 11) 2016.
Based on the British show of the same name.
