> Description 
Fear Factor is an American stunt/dare game show created by Endemol Netherlands and first aired on June 11, 2001. However, Fear Factor is commonly referred to as a reality show. The original Dutch version was called Now or Neverland. When Endemol USA & NBC adapted it to the American market they changed the name to Fear Factor. The show pits contestants (usually three men and three women) against each other to complete a series of stunts better and/or quicker than all the other contestants. The show is hosted by Joe Rogan. The regular format involves three men and three women who must complete three stunts in order to win $50,000. If a contestant fails to complete a stunt or does not perform it better or quicker than other contestants, they are eliminated from the competition. Before the third stunt, if only one contestant remains, they automatically win $25,000 and the other contestants who were eliminated in the stunt, will return for the next stunt to compete for the remaining $25,000. If no one completes the second stunt, then they return to the third stunt for a reduced $25,000.
