■Each episode welcomes a top secret guest
The hosts are a popular Japanese idol group called "ARASHI" consisting of five young men. They welcome a top secret guest called a "Big Brother" whom they meet for the first time at the studio without rehearsals or preparation (really!). Each episode shows the hosts take on a new mission which they manage to do quite well. Enjoy watching the hosts' versatile skills, genuine reactions and explosive energy.

■Close encounters of the third kind
One of the hosts welcomes a topnotch guest from outside of the entertainment world. Sometimes the guest is a taxi driver who drives around Hollywood stars, an ace close-up magician or an up-and-coming illustrator. In each episode, the host must, of course, perform the task at hand without preparation or practice.
