Ultimate Tablecloth Swiping

Forget "Top Chef." Folks in Japan prefer a little more spin on the culinary game show concept. Who cares if contestants can cook—can they swipe a tablecloth without disturbing a diner's place setting? Priorities, people. As for the guy dressed in a bow tie and Speedo in the last thirty seconds of the vid, you'll see that he's not just a waiter. He's an entertainer, too.

Thanks, Japan Probe!

Japan produces more game shows than U.S. does reality TV. The speedo guy looked like he was trying to eat his own face each time he successfully swiped his tablecloth. Weird.
