FEAR FACTOR Set to Return to NBC 7/9
FEAR FACTOR is set to return to NBC on Monday, July 9 at 8:00/7:00c. The network has scheduled an unaired two-parter from its twice canceled series.
The episode is titled "LEECHES & SHAVED HEADS & TEAR GAS, OH MY! - PART 1" and finds a colorful cast competing against each other to win the grand prize.
Contestants must put on a brave face when they are pushed to their limits in hopes of winning $100,000. In the first stunt, contestants are ripped off a cliff's edge and sent hurtling into space on a bungee line attached to a helicopter 500 feet away. Highlights from subsequent stunts include contestants being submerged in a tub full of leeches before having to consume 10 leeches; teammates working their way up a five-story building engulfed in flames, before being rocketed off the roof in an enormous explosion; and, teams facing their fears as they are confronted with the challenge of being tear gassed, tattooed or having their head and eyebrows shaved. (Part 1) Joe Rogan hosts.
