Fear Factor - Can you beat the competition?

Fear factor is a show first created several years ago. It is a show about some of your worst fears. The show works by having contestants come on the show and compete in 3 challenges. Each challenge has common fears like height, and nasty tasting food items. In each of the three challenges contestants compete against each other in order to move on to the next round.

Only one person can win and they will win $50,000 dollars. To many, no amount of money is worth being put through all the stuff you have to go through on this show. To say some of the things are scary would be an understatement. The show is well known for its tough challenges. The contestants have been put through some seriously tough things that are also scary.

For instance, holding your breath under water in a submerged car. Contestants are trapped in a car and then it is submerged. When the last bit of air is gone out of the car, the timer starts. The person that holds their breath the longest wins the round and moves on to the next round.

Being in a car under water and feeling trapped can be scary. Many of the contestants have quit right after the challenge started because of how scary it is. This is just one example of what contestants face on the show.

The show is also well known for its food challenges. On day two, the contestants are made to eat some really gross things. Things like cow eyes and rotten eggs. Contestants can walk away at any time and it is often that many of the contestants walk away on day two instead of eating the foods.

This is a cool show that went off the air several years ago. Recently it came back for another run. If you can stomach watching the contestants eating gross things then you will likely enjoy this show. It is often fun to watch the reactions of the people as they do some of these crazy challenges.
