FEAR FACTOR --(8:00PM-9:00PM) --(TV-PG)
"No.527 - Las Vegas Pairs Show"
FEAR FACTOR DOUBLES UP FOR THIRD TIME IN VEGAS -- The series returns to Las Vegas for the third time to pit pairs (two sets of best friends, one pair of female twins, and one couple who is dating) against the odds of facing fear as a team. The neon rainbow of the Vegas strip provides the backdrop for the first challenge; an homage to Harry Houdini that ends in an explosive slide in an upside down car. The lights of this night-blooming "desert flower" also shine on the pairs as they traverse a tight rope strung on the 36th floor between two wings of the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort. Naturally, the high-roller episode has a gaming twist: the winners must bet half of their up to $50,000 winnings on one hand of blackjack. Joe Rogan hosts.
