Fear Factor Sony Max Ch. 128 20 July 6pm (Mon- Fri)
In each episode of Fear Factor contestants (sometimes solo, often paired with spouses, siblings or best friends) must decide if they have the guts and determination to face their most primal fears. Under the supervision of professional Hollywood stunt coordinators, contestants are confronted with a series of challenging stunts. If they complete their task they advance; if fear stops them from completing a stunt or they fail the mission, they are immediately eliminated. The contestant who wins the final challenge takes home the prize. Mondays to Fridays at 6pm
