Reminiscing a classic ARASHI♥ variety show clip today!! And certainly you didn’t think that the SMAP boys were the only ones with a talent for cuisine, albeit the Mago Mago ARASHI format’s waaaaay different from my beloved SMAP Bistro which I’ve featured here from time to time…. as the “ARASHI no totsugeki!! kodomo no bangohan!” segment takes meal preparation/cooking and getting personal to an entirely new level. Well with fans writing in to the show to request two members of the group to come and babysit for them so that they can have a night out to themselves it’s quite the unique show! The two chosen members must then cook for their kids and take on various other household tasks which in the past have included (gulp!) homework, walking the family dog, and even the occasional change of diapers!! After mealtime is finished, the kids then get to vote on whom cooked the better meal for them with the loser (of course there’s a batsu right!! =O) having then the task of washing all of the dishes =P! It’s really a perfect format for getting to see and know the personalities within ARASHI much better as it’s such a candid segment without question ^^.
~Matsujun vs. Riida/ vs. Miku~chan x Nao~chan~
December 16th, 2006!
Now while it’s certainly Matsujun vs. Riida in winning over the hearts of the girls with their cooking, I normally wouldn’t additionally deem this corner as a “versus” the kids corner…. HOWEVER while the parents have noted that their girls are “big fans of ARASHI♥”, their kids truly prove on the contrary!~! One of the more hilarious and rough times for the guys! Miku and Nao hold back no punches as the insults and playfully bad behavior are in full swing throughout this episode and poor Matsujun seems to be the target of choice for much of it…. something I never would have imagined in a zillion years. Oh! and it’s notable that the girls don’t favor fish and their parents have given the guys directions to create dishes that perhaps may sway their taste buds in favor of seafood. And so after a bit of shopping for hopefully the right ingredients let’s see whom proves victorious under these very challenging conditions! =) Part educational and 100% fun!! it’s time to reminisce a classic Mago Mago ARASHI and see who wins! btw! Matsujun’s semi-long hairstyle back then was HOT~HOT!!!!!
