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

I'm not too classy for this
25 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

You can hold your nose and try to shame us for liking it. But I know that I wasn't alone when it first came out in 2001 and loved it. It was the logical climax to reality TV. Everybody was still clinging to the fact that they were making something profound.

You won't find any such delusions here. It's gross out TV. And we love Joe Rogan making those meatheads eat worms. Isn't that half the fun? After a while it did wear out its welcome. After all, how many variations of dropping people off the roof can there be.

After leaving the air in 2005, it did come back in 2011. It was more sentimental than anything else. Those were the times.
