I'm watching the first episode of the newly resurrected Fear Factor. I forgot how disturbing it was to watch them eat stuff. They're eating scorpions.

Uuugh. I thought this atrocity was gone for good, but apparently people are too idiotic and want to keep disgusting failures like this one alive.

A few minutes ago, I was thinking, "Oh, sweet injured cat help stories, gay penguins, happy vegetarians... I have faith in humanity again!" but not anymore.

Extreme disappointment. Makes me want to punch whoever is responsible for this in the face, as well as anybody who "enjoys" this monstrous abomination of an attempt at entertainment.

Also, why is this in Entertainment? I know that a lot of others share the view that this show is insanely disturbing and cruel, might as well move it to the heap.

Why is it so bad? I haven't really seen much Fear Factor.

They often have at least one challenge that involves eating LIVE insects or raw animal parts. There are also challenges involving live insects and small animals.

Of course it's also common that there is at least one vegetarian/vegan contestant who quickly throws all their morals out the window for a chance to win all that money. At the start of the challenge they will talk about how they are veg*n because they love animals. Then the challenge will begin and they'll devour those insects or cow rectums or horse eyeballs without a problem.

It's basically a show where people are put to the test to do gross and crazy stuff and conquer their fears. Some of it is really cool and takes skill, like walking on tightropes, but that is completely overshadowed by the 2/3 of the show they spend eating live animals.

EDIT: Damn, ninja'd!

Ah, that is messed up.

I do like Joe Rogan though. I don't think he likes the show, I've heard him say he has to be high to get through it.

It's so embarrassing because in my younger (not that I'm that old), pre-veggie days I used to actually enjoy watching this show. What was wrong with me.........

He kind of seems like an ******* but I respect the fact that he speaks his mind and doesn't censor himself. He's not one of those celebrities who tries to have the perfect image and reputation by kissing Hollywood's ass and being fake.

Maybe they'll cut back on all the gross and cruel animal stuff this season and concentrate more on the stunts. Maybe..

I changed the channel when I saw them swimming in cow's blood. Yeah...
