Six contestants fight it out each episode to conquer their fears
and undertake a series of challenges to avoid elimination and
ensure top billing at the end against all other competitors.
The activities are designed test the physical and mental strength
of each player. Competitors must attempt to succesfully complete
the defined task - for the players which fail to take part or
perform worst at the task are eliminated from the game.
There are four challenges in each episode - and the best person
is promoted to the next round - to ultimately challenge for the
$50000 grand prize.
The Australian version of the show only aired for two episodes
- whether the remainder of the episodes shot will be broadcast
over the silly season is not known. It would be most unfortunate
not to see them - in my opinion "Fear Factor" is quite
a good show!
