Since I first reviewed Fear Factor, I like it even more. Now we understand how the format works. The first stunt is usually physical
based. Jumping from one moving train car to another or climbing from a moving boat to a helicopter, etc. The second is usually the "gross out" stunt. They've had "beetle bowling"
where the number of pins standing after 2 rolls is the number of beetles you have to eat. Or in one episode, everyone had to eat 6 earthworms. That one was good, watching people
gag and try to keep them down (oh yeah, you have to chew them up!).
The last stunt is sometimes a height based stunt but no matter what it is,
it's timed. So the fastest one wins. The last episode featured a crawl through a pitch black drainage sewer where one female contestant took a header right into the sewer water
(yeah!). I'm loving this show so far!

What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of rats? Are you afraid of worms? Are you afraid of heights? The premise of NBC's new summer game show Fear Factor is that they
take your fears and multiply them by 100! People who are afraid of rats get placed in a box and covered completely with rats. If you're afraid of heights, you'll cringe while
watching contestants climb out of a car suspended a hundred feet in the air to pull out flags at the front and rear of the car.
Like rats? How about being covered from head to toe in them?
