FEAR FACTOR --(8:00PM-9:00PM) --(TV-PG)

"No.521 - Couples, Episode No.5"

COMPETITION HEATS UP & SPARKS BEGIN TO FLY--In the fifth episode of a special seven-part couples contest, only five couples remain to test their relationships by facing fear as a team and working together to capture an ultimate payoff of $1 million. In this episode, one contestant is blindfolded while their partner guides them through an electrically charged maze filled with tiny charged tripwires. Every time a wire is sprung, both contestants get the jolt of their lives. Joe Rogan hosts this series in which eight couples recruited from across the nation must decide if they have the guts and determination to face their most primal fears when confronted with a series of challenging stunts under the supervision of professional Hollywood stunt coordinators. Matt Kunitz ("Real World," "Dog Eat Dog") and David Hurwitz are the executive producers of this series from Endemol USA.
