Why do Japanese game show contestants seem to feel no pain?

We are fans of MXC and Ninja Warrior. But we can't get over how many of the contestants take amazingly hard hits or crash down onto obstacles, then come up laughing! Do they really not get hurt?
Or is it a "saving face," cultural kind of thing, where it's bad form to appear weak/show pain?
