A long time ago (I believe the 80s) there was a game show in Japan called Takehashi's Castle. 100 people would try to take over a castle, but to get to it they'd have to go through obstacles, most of which were extremely dangerous and extreme, and if you lost the game you were eliminated.
Years later, Spike TV
took the show and turned it into a show called Most Extreme Elimination Challenge, or MXC
. They dubbed it badly with funny, often perverted commentary by the two host Vic Romano and Ken Blankenship, and edited out the prizes and things like that.
