Fear Factor 3/3 (Grosser than gross; spoilers inside)

Stunt One: Hanging on a trapeze by your knees from a helicopter flying over a lake while collecting flags off bouys.

Stunt Two: Having a series of 10 needles (gauges getting thicker as they go) put through the skin on your upper arm.

Stunt Three: Eating 4 oz. of maggot ladden cheese... I loved what the third guy did.

Stunt Four: I don't care... I'm changing the channel...

4th stunt was climbing some pole to get a flag.

Tamia won in 22 seconds beating cocky Eddie w/ 29 secs.

It was a fun show to watch!

I was wondering about something when I was watching this, it really can't be healthy for those people to eat maggots and try beat each other's times. I mean, basically they're trying to swallow as much as they can at once, doesn't the throat have two routes. One leading to the stomach, the other to the lungs. For example, if you drink water too fast, you'll burp, 'cuz that's the water going down the wrong pipe. I mean, I think these guys should get their lungs x-rayed.

"Fear Factor" is now officially more disturbing than Max Hardcore porn.

The guy was shocked to see her crawl across the pole faster.

Of course... she got boobs to keep her balance.

The Blonde AFTER the needles: "it was all an act" - yeah right....like those tears and that hysteria were fake.

And that maggott cheese was just about the sickest thing i've EVER seen - and that includes GG Allin. Holy crap i thought I was gonna puke...i can't imagine.

And the dude who bailed: "it takes real courage to walk away..." Uhm...no, it doesnt.

Maybe on an upcoming "Fear Factor," they'll do G.G.'s famous french fries and catsup thing.

Actually burping is air coming out of the stomach that you swallow while drinking. The maggots wouldn't get into the lungs since the windpipe is covered during swallowing. If it would have gotten into the lungs the person would have started coughing. You can't breathe and swallow at the same time.

I like the girl.
1) Can handle any position
2) Can take many sorts of penetration
3) Will swallow anything
4) Moves good whilst straddling a pole

All good things in my book!

This had to be one of the most disgusting episodes ever. They should have given the winner $100,000 and that still would not have been enough. What in the hell is with the body piercing. 10 needles...are you kidding me, who dreams this crap up. My wife almost passed out watching the show..I won't even get into the cheese...

It was fun to see the girl beat the cocky fireman (no pun intended). This was one of the grossest episodes I've seen yet. It will be interesting to see how far they can take the show and still get away with it on TV.
