:D

I'm going on a semi-secret mission this week and need YOUR help!

The executive producer of Fear Factor happens to be a friend of mine AND a big fan of TiVo.

He's invited me down to the set this week as they record the first episode of the new season. I'll spend two days there and we'll film some fun behind-the-scenes footage (exclusively for TiVo subscribers!) that I will share with you later...

SO --- are there any burning questions out there I can ask on your behalf?

Questions for Joe, the host... the Gross producer...

Anything from why all the contestants look like they stepped out of the Ford model agency to how they come up with a recipe for coagulated blood milkshakes (eiw!). The story behind a certain episode, etc. etc.

They WANT to hear from TiVo subsribers, so put on your creative caps.

Looking forward to representing the TiVo peeps and THANKS in advance.

1. What happens to all the worms, bugs, and other creatures after the show is over? I suppose that they return the bigger ones to the "animal wrangler." For the other ones, do they just let them loose in downtown Los Angeles?

2. The show has great sets and locations. Where do they usually film? (I especially love the shots in abandoned-looking warehouses.)

  1. Last year, the intro lost the familiar 3 men, 3 women part. Is that because there had been so many "special" episodes (twins, best friends, families, etc) so that the 6 contestents was no longer seen as standard?
  2. With the Playboy "Women of Fear Factor" it seemed as though the show's producers were very willing to lend their name/logo etc. Were there conerns about that, since Fear Factor is supposed to be a family show? (And if not, will we see more Fear Factor girls model?!?)
  3. Ratings for last season were off from the previous year. Why do you think that is and what have the producers done to reverse that trend? Do you think that the syndication of old seasons are part of the problem?
  4. Have you thought about doing an all-cop or all-firefighter episode? (3 men, 3 women)
  5. When is Fear Factor expected to premiere? Will there still be the same number of episodes?

Instead of Ford agency, the women look like they are porn stars (relatively). Surgically enhanced and all...

Are we going to see more extended contests this season? Personally, I prefer the multi-episode ones with intermediate prizes. It makes winning each contest that much more important.

Also, why are so many of the people on Fear Factor incapibable of dealing with water? It seems with each water stunt, there is someone that is a big 'fraidy cat. Didn't they think they would see water?

Enjoy the show, dump the Ms. America (or whatever contest) episodes, those are generally stupid. The celebrity stuff is funny.. We don't have Circus of the Stars anymore, we have Fear Factor with semi-celibrities.

What in his mind is the worst/grossiest episode he ever took part in?

  • What are some stunts that have rejected for being too dangerous or gross?
  • What has been your (producer's) and Joe's favorite stunt?
  • I remember that during the first Vegas episode, one of the contestants was convinced that the official time was off (or rigged or something). Have any other contestants accused Joe (or the producers) of favoritism? (Perhaps towards the attractive girls?)

Some of these questions were answered on the VH1's show on Fear Factor.

Has anyone ever been seriously injured doing a stunt? (I guess this'd be more of a "food poisoning" kind of question for the "gross producer")

Have you ever had any contestants claim some kind of weird secret to being able to get through the gross food segments? (Not eating the day before, doing something to kill the smell, etc.)

Has Joe ever thrown up or nearly thrown up? What was the stunt he considered the most disgusting?

1. When the contestants perform a stunt where they have to throw flags on the ground or into a lake, does someone clean up all the flags afterwards, or do they just leave them there?
2. During the gross out stunts, how do they ensure that the "food" is safe for consumption? I can't imagine that they tested every single worm, rat, decayed fish gut, etc to make sure they are disease-free.

From my wife:

Why aren't there any chubbier people as contestants? (non barbie/kens)

What aren't there girls with 'real' big ones (yes her question but i hate fake also)

When will they come up with new stunts? Water, yucky stuff, then heights is getting real old and predictable. The helicopter stuff is boring.

why isn't there a handicapped version fear factor? stuff like eating bugs can be done by many other people.

Is the stuff with raw sewage truly raw sewage?

does OSHA have anything to do with the show?

Do the people on the show have to take a psych test?

The paluga? half made baby duck eggs: are they dead when you go to use them or do you just take them away and kill them by the act of taking them away?

Will Joe ever play himself? She thinks he should. Also the other man show guys should.

She awaits your answers and is thankful for the chance to ask.
