Why does Mental Samurai have the "Samurai" in the title?

"Honestly, I don’t have a clue," Miles Surrey says of the premiere of the Rob Lowe-hosted Fox game show. "There is nothing we’ve seen in the premiere that correlates to medieval Japan’s elite warrior class. My best guess is that the series’ brain trust decided—appropriately—that calling a winning contestant a 'Mental Samurai' sounds slightly cooler than something like 'Mental Ninja,' 'Mental Viking,' or 'Mental Magus.'" ALSO: Mental Samurai has a slow start with 2.28 million viewers.
