However, due to the sudden pause in June, costs and logistics of restarting production proved to make this impossible. The competition show as originally meant to be a lead-out program of the Tokyo Olympics, but its premiere slot is now replaced with Family Game Fight.

The show was set to be hosted by funnymen duo Bobby Moynihan and Ron Funches. Competitors on the show were meant to take on various challenges including Human Pong, Body Bowling, Cornhole and Bocce Fall for a hefty cash prize at the end.
