Storyline

In each pulse-racing "Fear Factor" episode, contestants (sometimes solo, often paired with spouses, siblings or best friends) recruited from across the nation must decide if they have the guts and determination to face their most primal fears. Under the supervision of professional Hollywood stunt coordinators, contestants are confronted with a series of challenging stunts. If they complete their task they advance; if fear stops them from completing a stunt or they fail the mission, they are immediately eliminated. The contestant who wins the final challenge takes home the prize. Written by Matt Kunitz

Not bad if you don't take it seriously
12 February 2012 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

Fear Factor is one of those shows if you view the show the way it's meant to be as a guilty pleasure and something to laugh at the people on the show then you won't be disappointed. By no means is it high brow entertainment but at the same time it doesn't try to be. It's unapologetically the type of show that it wants to be.

The show consists of 4 teams to compete in 3 stunts. The first stunt is usually a big stunt where it's somehow involving you being dangling from a helicopter or something along those lines. The second stunt is usually the gross stunt where you have to eat a bunch of really gross things, which is where it's more of a psychological fear you're overcoming. The third stunt is another stunt that's not quite on the same scale as the other movie.
