French game shows have not quite reached the Japanese level of crazy, but they apparently are working on it.

Tony Parker and other members of the French national team — Boris Diaw, Nicolas Batum, Ronny Turiaf — are set to appear next week on Fort Boyard in their native country. It’s a show that takes place in the actual fort of the same name and is filled with fear-based challenges. Like getting past a roaring tiger. I don’t care if you’re in a vehicle a metal cage, that’s going to spike the adrenaline.

This is fun — Parker is trying to calm the animal down, Diaw is roaring right back at it (from a very safe distance).

Hat tip to Eye on Basketball for finding this.
