Show Summary

"Imagine a world where your greatest fears become reality." In each pulse-racing "Fear Factor" episode, contestants recruited across the country battle in extreme stunts. These stunts are designed to challenge the contestants both physically and mentally. If a player is too afraid to complete or fails a stunt, the player is eliminated. If they succeed, they are one step closer to the grand prize: $50,000.

    • Mindless as hell, but fun to watch

      8.0
      If you enjoy watching people doing crazy shit, then Fear Factor is the show for you. It provides a lot of excitement for viewers, which is what makes it enjoyable. Although, this show is definitely not for many, since the second round of every episode is truly disgusting and grotesque, which is meant to test the competitors mentally. If you don't have the stomach for it, don't watch, because it's pretty insane.moreless

      As much as I love fear factor I'd like to see some full figured people compete. Fat people need love to.
    • FEAR FACTOR TEEN AND OR FAMILY CHALLENGE

      10
      We play family Fear Factor on Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's a $1.00 per challange, just not as tough as the challanges on the show. My 14 year old believes that Fear Factor should be a piece of cake. I would like to know if Fear Factor will ever have a teen challenge. This way I can she my daughter proven wrong. Please keep me informed so I can put her to the test.

      AWESOME SHOW...moreless

    • Round 2 is so grotesque...

      8.5
      I think it's the toughest part of the show IMO.... how can people eat those things fearlessly?! Remarkable. Seeing people overcome what I consider fears are pretty neat and full of suspense. Great host too!
