Why was the season premire the million dollar episode?
I don't understand why the season premire of Fear Factor was a million dollar episode. The people that were on it have never been on Fear Factor before. They should have had a million dollar episode for the season finale. That way people that won each week would be able to compete for a million and not the hundred thousand that they got. It seem anti-climatic. When I heard about the million dollar episode, I thought that they were going to have the top 2 or 3 people from each of the seasons compete. That way it would be the best out of the best. With the show that I saw the winner didn't have to beat everyone in the season, they just had to beat everyone in the show.
With the said I don't think that the stunts were all that exciting. You can see anyone of those stunts each week on the show. I hope that this year's grand championship doesn't follow with the same lack of excitement. Last year's was awesome.
Fear Factor is still my favouite show on T.V., but they are going to have to work a little harder to maintain that place.
Why $1 million, then back to $50k?
Why did they have one episode for 1million then the rest of the shows from now on for $50k? Why not have the winners of this season come back for the champions episode for 1 million. Kinda stupid!
