Marriage is often thought of as a win-lose proposition, as if it were a gamble. Under such circumstances, the clear winners in the marriage game are Japanese women who marry wealthy foreign men.

This tiny subset of lucky housewives is the subject of this week's quiz show, "Sekai Baribari Value" (World Exciting Values; TBS, Tuesday, 10 p.m.), where a panel of celebrities have to guess yen values of products and services in foreign countries.

This week's program aims to show how "Japanese women are prized by men all over the world." A female comedian visits Japanese women living in "gorgeous splendor," picking through their possessions and property and asking the folks back in Japan to estimate the value of this villa or that luxury car.
