A critic-proof reality show in which contestants perform extreme (and not infrequently gross) tests---from getting into a pit filled with scorpions or rats to walking through a burning building to eating a sheep's eyes---in hopes of winning a grand prize. The series has proven to be undeniably popular and is in no danger of winning a Peabody Award.

First Aired: July 11, 2006

A family edition from Universal Orlando Resort features a guest appearance by Shaquille O'Neal, who looks on as kids and parents team up for a high-flying helicopter stunt.
