In early June, Universal Orlando will kick off its new attraction, Fear Factor Live, based on the daredevil NBC program "Fear Factor." While this latest offering -- one that appeals to the brave at heart with strong constitutions -- isn't a typical theme park ride, it is an example of how amusement venues are cultivating television content to bring in the guests.

Personally, I dont get the fascination with having rats crawl over you while eating elephant foreskins, but what do I know....I like Son of Beast ;)
If they really wanted to challenge the populous it'd be the other way around - elephants crawling over you while eating rat foreskins.
Now that's entertainment. ;)
It's really funny how it all comes back again 2000 years later with shows like Fear Factor etc.People will just watch everything that hits their nerves, and as long as people will watch it, it will be produced, because if people watch it, you can place ads, and ads mean money - which is the reason for quite a few things. It makes people eat Kangaroo testicles and take a bath in cockroaches, so .. what's the next sick idea?
And now they are planning to do it as a live show in a theme park.
Go to Universal Oralndo -or- order chili at Wendy's

You're absolutely right that there's bigger probs in the world and Fear Factor or its international franchises.
I was just seriously wondering why they would bother to bring such a show to a theme park - my guess is it simply won't work:
Voyeurism is possibly best performed when you are alone as a voyuer - but when people see each other staring at that stuff I guess they will be more appaled than anything.
But that's just a guess.
