Have you always dreamed of participating in a reality show? Here is your chance. Fear Factor Live is a stunt show at the Universal Studios Tours where volunteers are from the audience. Since there are three to five shows held everyday, chances are good that you might just be able to take part in it.
Of course there are a few things to know and remember before you take part in the stunt show. First, this is not a mock show. The fears are real and no simulated Fear Factor in this show. And the stunts are performed by members of the audience just like you. So if you are faint-hearted, better not attempt.
If you think you have the guts to go ahead and take part, visit the casting office, located near the Terminator ride, in the theme park. There are some physical standards that have to be met, which stands guarantee that you can handle the tasks assigned to you. You have to even sign a liability form which relieves Universal Studios and Fear Factor of any obligation, in case of any injuries or damages that may occur.
Before the actual show begins, those members of the audience who were not selected to participate are called on stage and some similar challenges are thrown, like eating insects and bugs. The winner of the pre-show contest is awarded wonderful prizes, like an annual pass to the theme park. Then there is an audience warm-up to build the excitement by the hosts of the show.
There are six participants in the show – all chosen from the casting office. Their dress code is just like the original Fear Factor dress – tight uniforms. Then a line-up of challenges, again like the Fear Factor challenges are thrown at the contestants. These include falling from a height, skill tests and of course the well-known gross-out challenge. While the show is on, a member of audience is picked up for yet another challenge, like putting your head in a tank which is replete with scorpions.
After watching Fear Factor, if you have bragged to your friends that it was easy for you and you could easily handle all those stunts yourself – watch out. It could be that you prove yourself right or your friends could prove you wrong. This is your life-time opportunity to participate in the Fear Factor Live show at the Universal Studios Tours, and prove your mettle. Go and meet the casting office as soon as you can but make sure that you meet all their physical requirements. In case you don’t, ask for being part of the audience.
