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.
