Although it was billed as a game show, the worst Fear Factor challenges suggest the original NBC show belonged in the horror genre. Given the extreme nature of the stunts and dares contestants completed – not to mention what they ate – many viewers wondered if the show did too much. But that's precisely the point.

All the times Fear Factor went too far are why fans tuned in; no wonder this series just refuses to die. It originally aired on NBC from 2001 to 2006 before being canceled. In 2011, NBC brought it back, but canceled it again a year later. MTV aired a third incarnation of Fear Factor in 2017. It's the little show that could, because some people will seemingly do anything for the chance to win some cash.
