In an all-new episode of "Fear Factor," contestants will not just compete against each other but also against Mother Nature. In the first stunt, contestants must balance on a tiny ledge over 100 feet in the air all while being blasted by hurricane rains and wind. Then, the pairs will have to bob for the only bugs that can survive a nuclear explosion- Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches – and then eat them.
Finally, the contestants will battle a flash flood with millions of gallons of raging waters along with torrential rain and wind. New this season, host Joe Rogan will travel all over the country for "Fear Factor Home Invasion" challenging people to "Fear Factor" stunts right in their own homes for the chance to win a $5,000 Capital One credit card. This week’s home invasion takes us to Hagerstown, Maryland. Fear Factor airs on Tuesday, August 22 at 8P.M. ET on NBC.
