A reality competition where contestants face their fears trying to win the grand prize.
In Fear Factor, contestants are pitted against one another in a series of pulse-pounding stunts designed to challenge them physically and mentally.
If a contestant decides not to participate because fear is too much of a factor, they are eliminated. Those who succeed move one step closer to winning the grand prize of $50,000.
Originally cancelled in 2006 after five years on the air, Fear Factor was resurrected by NBC in 2011.
