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.
Whether wedged in a narrow canyon, hundreds of feet high, covered in a swarm of bees wearing only goggles and nose plugs, or precariously hanging from moving semi trailer speeding down a desert highway, Fear Factor contestants are taken to the limits of their deepest fears. Only the bravest will come out on top.
