    'Fear Factor' Gross Out in NYC

    'FEAR FACTOR' GROSS OUT IN NYC
    http://www.nypost.com/entertainment/33190.htm

    November 2, 2004 -- 'FEAR Factor" will scare its way into New York City next week.
    The gross-out/stunt show filmed its 100th episode in Manhattan last summer and it's finally scheduled to air Monday.

    Among the New York-centric stunts the episode will include are getting contestants to snag as many flags as they can while they hang beneath the Roosevelt Island tram as it traverses the East River and an aerial stunt including two helicopters hovering near the Statue of Liberty.

    The contestants will also try to eat some sort of "nasty" stew in the middle of Times Square.

    "Taking 'Fear Factor' to New York City has been a dream of ours since show one," executive producer Matt Kunitz says.

    "Fear Factor" is averaging about 13.6 million viewers a week on NBC.

    The series is the first reality show to reach 100 episodes and the first to be sold into syndication.

    Maybe the rats "taste like chicken"?

    My God...Joe just dropped a rat in a blender - the whole freakin' thing, tail, hair, etc. - and pureed it. And all four of them actually ate it. Truly a new low (and I mean that in the nicest way ) for FF. I was so grossed out I couldn't stop watching.

    I've always thought it weird this show gets classified as a 'reality show' rather than just a game show....

    Good point, Mozzz, I never thought about that. What is the distinction here? Simply because it's not shot in a studio with plasticine spokesmodels voguing over "Brand New Cars!"?

    Aren't all the reality programs really game shows?All the people (or CONTESTANTS) are competing in a GAME to win a prize of money or whatever else is offered. Therefore, GAME SHOW.
