FEAR FACTOR --(8:00PM-9:30PM) --(TV-PG)

"Episode No.609 - Blind Date Fear Factor"

BLIND DATE FEAR FACTOR-- "THEY COULDN'T BEAT US IF THEIR NAME WAS BEATUS!" -- In this special 90-minute episode, contestants for the first time ever must pair up with a complete stranger. Along with the new parings, the winning team will now have the power to eliminate a team of their choice after the first stunt is completed. For the first task, teams will be on a speeding Sea-Doo boat as a helicopter lifts it out of the water. Then they must maneuver themselves underneath the boat. Next, the teams will be placed in a very small tank that is submerged in freezing cold water while digging through hundreds of pinching crabs. The race continues as the final teams are buried alive under tons of ice. This week's home invasion takes us to Providence, Rhode Island. A new twist to the show this season features host Joe Rogan traveling all over the country challenging people to "Fear Factor" stunts right in their own home for the chance to win a $5,000 Capital One credit card. This season, "Fear Factor" brings us an all-new stunt team from such movies as "The Matrix" and "Jurassic Park." Joe Rogan hosts this series. Matt Kunitz ("Real World") and David Hurwitz are the executive producers of this series from Endemol USA.
