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

Don't Miss This Show!!
27 January 2003 | by (Woodinville, Washington) – See all my reviews

I try to not miss this show. This is one of my favorite TV shows on television now that X-Files is over. I like seeing the stunts and seeing people eat and do gross things. I even eat while I watch them eat the stuff that they do. Sometimes my stomach gets kind of queasy. If I had a chance I would try out for Fear Factor. I would do and eat everything they ask me to do. I would not wimp out, I would at least try everything If I was on the show. It is fun to watch and can get intense a lot. If you haven't watched it then you don't know what you are missing.
