Fear Factor And Joe Rogan

A favorite past time of mine in the early 2000s was settling in and watching a group of random people do disgusting and sometimes terrifying things, knowing the whole time that only one person would win the meager $50,0000 prize and the honor of hearing Joe Rogan state the simple phrase "Apparently fear is not a factor for you." NBC had me hooked to this formulaic show and I watched religiously both entertained and morbidly curious to see the extent that everyday people would go to win the equivalent of a lower middle class individuals salary. Im sure there was alot of editing involved because technically this show did qualify as a reality television program although comparing it to Keeping Up With The Kardashians or Teen Mom would likely be a mistake. This is because Fear Factor eats all other reality shows for lunch. All this being said is just to emphasize my joy about the return of in my opinion, one of the best shows of the 2000s. Executive producer Matt Kunitz has been quoted as saying they plan to up the ante on the revamped 2011 version of the soon to be classic program. There will be crazier stunts and more vile challenges than viewers could ever imagine. One of the main reasons Fear Factor was canceled was due to the fact that it was on in the same time slot as the powerhouse American Idol franchise. With NBC cashing in on the talent search competition type programming with their American Idol themed show The Voice, I believe that they are gearing to take over in the ratings. I cant wait to see what NBC has in store for us. Can you? I will be updating this post with episode summaries and the names of winning contestants.

Wether you are excited about the show's return or could care less, I want to know
