Top Ten Grossest Fear Factor Stunts!
It's a TV show that pushes its contestants to face their biggest fears - whether its scaling a tall crane to collect Fear Factor flags, walking through glass or swimming with snakes, Fear Factor has had its contestants do it all. The contestant that finishes all three, fear-saturated stunts ends up winning $50,000. But let's not forget about the gross stunts that contestants are faced with episode after episode. Kidzworld had compiled a list of why we think are the top ten grossest stunts ever attempted on Fear Factor. Think you can stomach it?
1.) Fear Factor Pizza - Episode 317 (Season 3): This stunt must have made some of the contestants give up on eating pizza ever again. With a crust made from cow bile, coagulated blood paste for sauce, rancid cheese and topping choices like live red worms and fish eyes, Fear Factor pizza isn't exactly something you'll be finding at your local pizza joint any time soon. Although most contestants ended up puking up their tasty treat, all contestants managed to complete the stunt and move on to the next round.
2.) Rat Bobbing - Episode 416 (Season 4): During Couples' Fear Factor, the girls had to lie down in a plexi-glass tank, and then were covered in 400 rats. The guys then had to retrieve ten chicken's feet from the tank, using only their mouths! One couple bowed out of the stunt cuz it was just too gross! The couple who won this stunt won an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas - think it was worth it?
3.) Eat Buffalo Testicles - Episode 104 (Season 1): Ever tried a Rocky Mountain Oyster? Peeps in Colorado think they're pretty tasty when they're breaded and fried, but bull's testicles aren't as tastily prepared on Fear Factor. Contestants had to eat two large bull's testicles in four minutes or else they would be eliminated. Before being able to eat the testicles, contestants would need to bite through and then peel back a veiny membrane that was holding the "meat" inside. This stunt really separated the boys from the girls - only the two guys were able to complete the stunt.
4.) Bug Body Bag - Episode 433 (Season 4): This All-Female edition of Fear Factor included one truly gruesome stunt. Contestants were stuck inside a morgue drawer, in a body bag filled with giant hissing cockroaches, flesh-eating worms, crickets and stink beetles. Locked in the pitch black of the morgue drawer, the girls were locked in chains and had to fumble around to find the right key to unlock themselves.
5.) Eat African Cave-Dwelling Spiders - Episode 408 (Season 4): This stunt was not for elimination but instead to win a brand new car. Contestants lined up at a table full of African cave-dwelling spiders and had to grab hold of them, and then eat them alive. We're not talking run-of-the-mill basement spiders either. These bad boys looked like a cross between a spider and a crab and even had the little pinchers to prove it. This stunt brought one contestant to tears and she almost forfeited the challenge. In the end, all of the contestants ate a couple of spiders. The winner ate a whopping 12!
