Episode 3.3 - October 6
We're giving away cars, we're giving away cash, and
someone can win ONE HUNDRED THOUUUUUUSAND DOLLARS!!!!
No, we're not playing Wheel of Fortune - we're playing
Fear Factor...but we do have a wheel involved - a
roulette wheel, as the spinning ball will stop at a
number and someone will win a new Mazda RX 8.
The number that the ball stops on is....24. The owner of
that number is....Jamison! He wins the car, and he is
going nuts. Tallying up the scores, we have Jamison -
Car, Josh - $1,000 and Krisandra - $0 and a taste of
dead spiders in her mouth.
Intermission time - and Krisandra and Jamison are
concerned about each other - neither of them are
concerned about Josh, as they both think that he is too
concerned about his hair than winning.
But we are done with the bonus round - let's get back to
the game. Speaking of cars, our next stunt features two
of them (Las Vegas taxi cabs), suspended over 100 feet
between buildings. Starting in the first car, they have
to release 4 flags, then jump to the second one, get the
key to the taxi in the trunk, go inside the taxi, turn
on the ignition, then honk the horn. To make things even
better, the sprinkler system is being turned on, which
means that the cars will be wet and slippery. The 2
people who release the most flags - or the 2 people that
get them all the quickest, moves on to the Fear Factor
Josh, Mr. Hair Gel, goes first. He thinks that the fear
of heights will get to him. He's certainly taking his
time, but he gets all of the flags off the first taxi
without falling. He jumps to the second car - and makes
it, clutching to the hood. He is taking his sweet time,
but he does complete the stunt in 3:46 seconds. He does
get it done, so if either of them screws up, he's
looking pretty. If neither of them screw up, he's in
One of the people determined to get him into trouble is
Jamison. He is going much faster than Josh on that first
4 flags. Here is the jump...and he makes it as well. He
is grooving, and although he hesitates a little at the
end, he stored up more than enough time at the beginning
to be slow now. It's done in 3:14, which guarantees him
a shot to get in.
It's down to Krisandra. She also goes much faster than
Josh, and everything is looking good for her. Can she
make the jump between the cars? She gets the running
leap...and...jumps way to soon. She does not hang on to
the hood and goes flying off of the taxi. In addition,
she closes her eyes before jumping, and if you can't see
where you are going to hold on to the car, you can't see
the money that you have just lost. Good-bye, Krisandra.
Josh and Jamison are left. We go to the Luxor, where 2
lovely ladies reveal a plastic coffin full of Madagascar
hissing cockroaches. The men will be handcuffed and
placed into the coffin with over 15,000 of those
critters. They have a set of 5 Fear Factor keys. One of
them opens the handcuffs. One of them opens up the cage.
Whoever gets out of the cuffs and coffin first wins the
Jamison does not want to go first - but Josh wins the
coin toss, and sure enough, Jamison has to go first. He
goes into the cage - amd to be blunt, he freaks out. He
does eventually gets the cuffs off - but it takes him 4
and a half minutes to do so. He completes it in 5:18,
and that's really really, slow. Jamison knows it and he
knows that he will be leaving Las Vegas in his car -
without the money.
Jamison thinks that there's no way that Josh will beat
him (or so he says) but he balks when Josh wants to use
the car as a side bet. Josh gets to go in the cage, and
those cockroaches are certainly not going to help out
his hair. Jamison is talking trash through the cage, but
it's not doing him any good, as Josh gets the cuffs off
in 1:30. He gets out in a little under 3 minutes, and
Josh is the Fear Factor Champion, which is good enough
Can he win $100,000? He can if he can get through one
hand of Black Jack, which he will wager $25,000 on. If
you remember last season, the player who won the $50,000
lost $25,000 in the Black Jack game.
Josh starts off to speak to Joe - but we aren't at the
casino table yet. We are in a swimming pool, where Joe
tells him that he will be held by his ankles as he's
repeatedly dunked into the pool. Each time he is in the
pool, he has to grab as many flags as possible. He gets
a total of 6 times, and the amount written on the flags
is what he wins - and half of that is going to be
gambled at the Black Jack table.
Josh gets dunked, and he is spinning around like a top.
He didn't get all of them, but he got the nice sized
ones - and he nailed a $10,000 flag. Josh nets a total
of $38,000 - plus the $51,000 that he won earlier is
It's time to go to the Black Jack table - and he has to
bet half of it. He will either be leaving with $44,500 -
or $133,500. Nice. Josh says that he hasn't had much
luck with Black Jack - but hopefully, it will get better
now. It would be nice time to do it...
He gets the chips - and puts down the $44,500 worth of
chips. yee-haw. Wouldn't it be fun if he gets to double
down or split them? Heh, heh, heh...Josh lets Joe cut
the cards, and away we go...
The dealer is showing a nine. Joe's first card is a 6,
and his second card is...a nine. He has 15 against a 9.
Of course, you are supposed to hit that, but there's
$44,500 at stake. Josh says that he traditionally stays
on 15 (wha?), but he consults his odds card, which, of
course, tells him to hit it. The crowd tells him to hit
too, and he does - with an ACE. He now has 16, and the
odds card still says to hit it. Josh says that the crowd
says to stay, and Joe says that there are a couple of
maniacs say to hit it.
Josh does freeze and the dealer reveals...a 3. The
dealer has 12, and she has to hit again, revealing...a
KING! The dealer goes bust, and Josh has won $133,500! I
hope he gives her a good tip. Here's a tip for him -
don't go back to the table, since fear wasn't a factor
for him - but neither was good gambling.
