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

User Reviews

Another example of trash TV.
23 October 2002 | by cellomasterSee all my reviews

I used to watch Fear Factor when they were going for mostly dangerous stunts. Of course, the writers and producers of the show had a hit an all-time low by burying people in innocent animals (like rats and spiders) and making them eat disgusting stuff (I can handle the coagulated blood balls...sort of...but WHY do they have to eat hissing cockroaches, one of my favorite insects?? That's barbaric and cruel, no matter how small or "disgusting" the animal).

The basic idea of the show: Get a group of morons together, and dare them to do stupid stuff. Whoever is left standing at the end of the mess wins (I think) $50,000.

I have since stopped watching this show. It's not about true fear anymore, but about grossing people out.
