FEAR FACTOR --(8:00PM-9:00PM) --(TV-PG)
"No.523 - Couples, Episode No.7"
HEART-STOPPING STUNT FOR FINALE OF COUPLES 7-EPISODE CONTEST -- It's down to three remaining couples in this seventh episode finale of a special seven-part couples contest, and the highlight is one of the most elaborate and spectacular challenges ever. The lovers must leap from a boat to a rope ladder hanging from a helicopter that then lands atop a moving semi-truck. Enclosed in the truck is a car they have to start and drive through the back cargo doors. Up to this episode, couples have tested their relationships by facing fear as a team and working together to capture an ultimate payoff of $1 million. 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.
