On Fear Factor you are not guaranteed to win any money even if you do the stuff. I don't know how many teams there are because I don't really watch the show but I think there are 4 teams? Anyway, would you go on this show and do all the sick stuff they have you do for only a chance at winning $50k? There is a good chance you will walk home with nothing but a bad aftertaste. I am pretty sure I wouldn't do it. Some of the food on there would be almost impossible to eat, let alone eat in a race. If I was guaranteed to get the money if I ate the stuff then that would be different. I don't like the idea of having to compete and risk eating it for nothing.
