FEAR FACTOR --(8:00PM-9:00PM) --(TV-PG)
"No.419 - Christmas Episode"
SO MUCH BETTER TO GIVE -- Contestants get a taste of the holidays and more after all the contestants participate in a variation on the "gift exchange" game. In the "Fear Factor" version, swapping a gift provides a contestant an opportunity to rid themselves of one of the more disgusting "epicurean lumps of coal" -- to finish the round everyone must completely devour their final present. And instead of roasting chestnuts on an open fire, contestants must swim under 20-foot high flames on a lake set afire. Joe Rogan hosts this series in which all stunts take place under the supervision of professional Hollywood stunt coordinators. Matt Kunitz ("Real World," "Dog Eat Dog"), John de Mol ("Big Brother") and David Hurwitz are the executive producers of this series from Endemol USA.
