13 Fear Is Real: Meet The Contestants

January 04, 2009 10:00 AM by Paulene Hinds


On Wednesday, January 7 at 8 PM ET on The CW, 13 lucky or should we say, unlucky people are going to be participating in a real live horror story. There is a catch though…they do not know or understand what they have signed up for! This is the premise behind the new horror/reality TV series, 13 Fear is Real.

Thirteen people will compete to stay alive as they face their deepest fears in an all-out elimination competition and scare-fest. Pitted against each other in situations straight from the horror movies, the 13 will face shocking surprises, psychological scares and lots of beware of the dark moments, all designed by a mastermind of terror. In addition to frightening them, he’ll also entice individuals to work in concert with him and against the others, creating a situation in which the 13 will not only look over their shoulders but will also never be certain who is real before them.

Each week, one unlucky victim will be killed off via frightening challenges and game-playing until only one person is left to win the grand prize of – fittingly – $66,666.

    For myself, my anxiety attacks had to have started as a child.

    This is called the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response, which is a very good description of the value that this in-built mechanism has for your safety. In fact it manages to create even more problems for a lot of people and those problems are not fun at all to deal with.
