Introducing Japan's first English reality show

8 Comments

Japan now has its first English language reality TV show. The program, available globally on the Internet via Film on TV, is produced locally by Dan Smith, a long-time resident of Japan. The program features a bevy of local ladies attending various events, parties and short, red carpet interviews with movie stars and other celebrities.

As you'll hear in this interview with Dan and one of his divas, Gigi, the program is roughly based on "Keep Up with the Kardashians," with the biggest difference being that the beauties featured in this show are ladies from, and living in Japan.

Gigi is hot. Glad the show features real women and not skinny, teeny-bop, no talent, overrated idols.

Go away. Japan does not need to be corrupted buy a Karadshian look alike copy program. Perhaps they will suit this guy.

I watched this several times and noticed every time that the woman, is basically doing in English what many Japanese women do in Roppongi, and that is laughing an anything a "gaijin" man says. It would be great if the show were really about the business and other talents of these women alone and things that would make them more interesting. It seems more like a Hugh Hefner type show with his groopies of "intelligent beauties." Didn't seem like the women had much to do with giving us a new image of the image of "Japanese women" so often seen in the want ads of men looking for "the right Japanese woman." Kind of GHQ-ish. Or, 1970's-ish? Maybe Bubble era at best? Something old-school.Watch. Japanese women who can speak English.
