The craziness continues for Americans competing in Japan when "Episode 103" of "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" airs TUESDAY, JULY 8 on the ABC Television Network. One of the games in the new hour: PEDAL FAST OR BIG SPLASH. Two teammates riding tricycles take turns trying to stay in a marked zone on a moving conveyor belt. The other teammates ride stationary bicycles and control the speed of the conveyor belt with their own pedaling -- the faster they pedal, the slower the conveyor goes. The team with the most time in the marked area wins, and a team plays until both tricycle riders drop into a giant ice filled pool of water.
