Fear Factor Fans?

  1. Almost a little embarrassed to admit it, but...
    -I am a fan of Fear Factor.
    Just wondering if any other fans had seen the commercial lately showing different stunts (don't know if they are from previous shows, or upcoming shows).
    One of the stunts shows a woman crying, then shows a syringe w/ needle being held up behind her? Has anyone seen this episode? This show has the contestants do some really outrageous things, but this blew my mind! Has anyone seen it?
    What exactly were they doing?

    My teens like the show, but I rarely watch it. I haven't seen the previews, but I'm curious as to what they would be doing with a syringe. My daughter watched tonight and said (a little too gleefully) that the contestants had to eat horse rectum. IMO, no amount of money could be worth something like that.

    eewww, You could not pay me enough money to eat horse rectum or anything else for that matter that they do on that show! I would never let bugs crawl on me and I would never stand on top of a tall building and do a stunt! It's insane. I think those people do it for the thrill more so than the money, but what do I know anyways, Im a chicken s**t! I am also curious about the syringe thing. anybody know?

    My husband & I both watch. The only reality show that we do.
    Last night though w/the horse rectum, YUK, & then clips w/the horses watching was tooooo much! I'm a horse lover and no way could I degrade myself by that stunt. I always say why do they have those eating stunts anyway? Its not actually a fear factor to eat disgusting things but a gross factor. hmmm new show?

    I saw the previews for upcoming shows but must have missed the syringe.

    The one with the syringe is for one of the new one for this season. Don't know when it's supposed to air--- but, it has me wondering as well.

    I watch Fear Factor too, sometimes I dry heave. The Horse Rectum was very gross but I don't think is was as gross as some of the other things they make them eat like worms and insects and the stuff they have on "Survivor".

    No way would I ever eat any of that stuff, especially if it was still alive!

    Did any of you hear about the actor that played Beaver on "Leave it to Beaver" that he almost died from doing a similar stunt on, I think it was, Letterman? I guess a year or so ago, Letterman had a "Survivor" skit with real people, namely actors and actresses. One of the dares was they had to eat a bug. Well, the bug was still alive, it looked like a large grub and had little pinchers. He was challenged to eat it and he did but when it made it to his stomach it was still alive and pinched the lining of his stomach or intestine which caused a serious infection.

    I don't think it's one of those Hollywood legends.

    colleen, seems I remember something about Jerry Mathers having a problem after that stunt also, but don't remember the details.

    Horse rectum? Don't think I can watch that night...I think that is by far the nastiest they have done!
