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

Fear Factor Absolutely Fabulous Show To Watch
1 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I Love This Show. Fear Factor Is A Cool Game Show That Kills To Get $50.000. Those Stunts Are Cool To Watch. The Stunts Are Disgusting But I Can Still Watch It. The Contestants Are Tough And Ready To Kill To Get Some Money. Fear Factor Is A Great Pleasure To Watch People Do Hard Stunts. A very intense viewing pleasure! I'm so tired of hearing how this show 'doesn't test your fears, but it does test your skills.' And how 'Fear Factor' is just a cheap gimmick to lure in the ratings for NBC. Lately, I haven't been impressed with NBC's shows. In fact, the only shows I make an effort to watch are 'ER' and 'Friends'. Meanwhile, 'ER' is still going strong. Another show that I try not to miss is 'Fear Factor'. "It doesn't test your fears" says a lot of viewers. How doesn't it exactly? If you're afraid of heights, the show makes you face your fears and makes you try and get rid of them. If your afraid of bugs. the show will give you a stunt to complete that deals with bugs forcing you to get through it if you want to win the $50,000. So 'Fear Factor' is used to rake in the ratings? Well, what show isn't? They all are in the ratings competition. The show produces entertaining and enjoyable stunts (none of which I would attempt), but it is still fun to watch others take their shot at them. The hour-long TV show is well set up with great 'fear factors' and a great host. (Even though it seems that every week now, an eating test is added to the three stunts, I still like seeing what kind of disgusting treat the creators have in store.) I like 'Fear Factor'. Period. Lighten up critics! who did think of this? I mean great show and everything but why would you practically kill someone so they could get money??? who did think of this? I mean great show and everything but why would you practically kill someone so they could get money??? I love this show and everything but if that was me I would never be able to do any of that stuff. like seriously when do these people come up with stuff like this?
