Looks like Kojima Yoshio, Dokidoki Camp and Shinagawa Koji (all comedians or comedy duos) were there too but I have no confirmation right now.
I guess they decided to grab a whole new set of comedians. Kojima Yoshio is in good shape (considering that he does all his performing only in a speedo he has to be) and Shinagawa Koji (two guys) participated in the Geinojin Sportsman shows in the past. Dokidoki Camp, Cherry Pie and Nochi I don't expect much out of.

I'd make a comment about how people b**** about Olivia going but not about Cherry Pie, but the redhead from Cherry Pie is actually kind of cute. (It's a shame she'll probably open her mouth during the proceedings.)
People complain about Olivia going because she's taking up one of the limited spaces from the United States.
Cherry Pie is just occupying the same space Moeyan used last year and really, a comedian spot is a comedian spot. It could just as easily be some other talento in their place and it wouldn't affect the overall structure.
The one thing people leave out that works in G4/Olivia's defense is that TBS has always been about corporate synergy - they've always handed out spots for their own, either announcers or actors/talentos who appear on TBS programs. G4 is just doing the same.
And really, was the "open her mouth" comment warranted?
I'm not sure why Brian O isn't going, but I can't see how Luci could do better than him.
Brian is injured and I think it was HIS decision (and not G4's) not to compete in Sasuke 22.
Then that would make sense. Too bad...hope David Campbell can make a good account of himself. I'm pulling for Luci (if she's there) but I don't see her getting past the Warped Wall and Flying Chute and under the time limit. But maybe she'll prove me wrong..
Eiji Setoda of the Muscle Musical was there. There will probably be an announcement on the Muscle Musical page at a later date like last time.
I'm "a little" surprised they haven't done much on the Muscle Park or Muscle Musical site. Usually they are hog wild over Sasuke. Maybe with the new guy in they dropped the ball. Still.. we have 2 weeks until the show airs. Thanks for the link! I didn't know he even had a blog.
Naoki Iketani finally posted about SASUKE. He has some pictures. The first photo is of a guy he says looks like Kane. I have no idea if that was a competitor or not. The second photo is the same one that Cherry Pie had on their blog and it solved another question: The guy behind them is Hori, a comedian who specializes in doing impersonations. His profile has him listed as appearing so he's yet another contestant. The third photo is him with one of the TBS announcers. The final photo is him with Toshiaki Kasuga of comedy duo Audrey. He says he'll have more pics up tomorrow I believe. www.diamondblog.jp/naoki_iketani/?p=712
Last for tonight: Yet another comedian, this time Chiro of Bigsmalln (that's not a typo). Actually, I'm not sure if both of them competed or not. I think only Chiro. He's done Geinojin Sportsman No. 1 before. bicsmallnchiro.blog50.fc2.com/blog-entry-1962.html
And You Nakao of the Muscle Musical. I guess they actually let the ladies take part this year (I think). The person next to her is (I think) Yukika Masai, another Muscle Musical member. ameblo.jp/you-nakao/entry-10225584927.html
lol, David knows how to release just the right amount of info. The wording suggests it might be a surprise ANC entry, although I really doubt that. It could be someone amazing like Phelps, or maybe someone that we already know of like Akiyama.

It would be so amazing to see Phelps, I doubt its possible it could be Kane....Miyake would be a big deal but i doubt it. I think its gotta be an American...under that rule its either Phelps or some big time athlete in soccor, or football considering baseball had spring trainng and basketball is going on. Could David Beckham be a possiblity?
