It began 10 years ago. Wow. That
long. Well now it's back and promises to be bigger, badder, more intense and of
course, grosser, which is how we like it. This is Gordon Pepper, and it's time
to come back to the basics. Welcome to Fear Factor.
Now who'll take home the second check? Time for #2
Ron and Julie (exes) - Think Dog the Bounty Hunter's younger brother and a
younger Tori Wilson.
Joe and CC (divorced) - They are divorced best friends who have a son together.
CC is clearly the dominatrix, while Joe needs to get some ab work done.
Ryan and Jillian (exes) - They think they have the edge because they both look
fabulous. Ryan looks like a failed auditioner from Twilight and Jillian looks
like a concubine.
Shawn and Jennifer (exes) - Shawn looks like a spray on Ken doll who leads a
'Showstopper Lifestyle'. Jennifer is just there for the ride.
Teams must drive into a pool. When the car goes to the bottom, they have to free
themselves with wingnuts and release flags from the pool. The slowest team to do
such gets deep sixed from the show.
Ryan and Jillian start first. They do post a nice 1:10, but Jillian drops the
flag before the time. Will that cost them? Joe and CC hope not, as they go next.
CC also drops a flag and Joe has to help her clip it on. That's going to cost
them, because they come in at 1:20, which puts them in last.
Shawn and Jennifer are next. Only one problem here: Jennifer, apparently, isn't
that good of a swimmer. Uh oh. The rescuers have to go get Jennifer, so that
eliminates them automatically. Shawn tells Joe that Jennifer did an awesome job
and that he respects her. AwwwwBarf.
All Ron and Julie have to do is finish the stunt and they're good. They can take
all night if they have to - they just have to finish. They grab the flags and
easily complete the task in one minute even. That looked pretty easy. Maybe this
will be more difficult...
Teams will be dunking into gallons of cows blood to retrieve cow hearts, who
will spit it into a box. Teams have 3 minutes to do it, and the team with the
least number of hearts will be eliminated.
Joe and CC start it off. Not only are they going slow, but Joe missed spitting a
heart into the box. They do get 8, but they miss a few and I think this may end
badly for them. Ron and Julie also miss the target, but they are going quicker
than Joe and CC and get 10 hearts.
It's down to Ryan and Jillian, who is complaining that she has a chipped tooth.
This isn't going to help with the gums. What really doesn't help is that they
miss 3 hearts, but they move super fast. They get the 9th heart with seconds to
spare. Joe and CC are knocked out, and CC is still complaining about the heart
they missed. Joe Rogan wonders if there's a chance any of them will get back
together. Julie says sure, while Ron says yes...until they get to the car. Heh.
It's a Fear Factor obstacle course. They have to go from a bus to a helicopter
to a speed boat, where they have to grab keys. Then the teams drive to the cargo
net, climb it and use the keys to open up backpacks with flares. The team that
shoots the flares the quickest wins.
Team Twilight goes first. They go very quick - maybe too quick, as Jillian
hyperventilates and Ryan gets a cramp, which costs him big time as he falls off
the cargo net. Jillian has to fire off both flares and that's going to cost them
They do complete it, but 5:40 is beatable. Will team Bounty Hunters grab the
win? They start out strong and unlike Ryan, they don't fall off the net. As they
don't make any mistakes, I expect them to win this...and they will. 4:27 is the
time and Ron and Julie find a new bounty: $50,000. Whether there's an argument
on the way to cash the check? Well that's for a different show.
So that's episodes #1 and #2 of the new Fear Factor reboot. Join us in 7 days
for more dirty fun.
