Omarosa’s Mind Games Are The Real Factor In ‘Fear Factor’

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Beauty pageants are an unlikely training ground for a show like Fear Factor but it worked for former Apprentice wannabe Omarosa Manigault- Stallworth.

The famed drama queen appears on an upcoming Fear Factor episode opposite fellow reality show alumni like Bachelorette hubby Ryan Sutter, Survivor winners Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca; and American Idol 1 runner-up Nikki McKibbin.

She says the tips she learned training beauty pageant contestants in Guyana and Taiwan gave her an edge over the others because in her words, “ both contests, the participants all want to win but not look like they want to win.”

Although Omarosa had a disadvantage on Fear Factor because she can’t swim, show producer Matt Kunitz says she had the “best psychological game of any contestant ever on the show.”

One of her tricks was bringing a big mirror on the set to distract the other reality show stars – which worked better than she expected, especially with Jenna and Ethan.

Omarosa’s Fear Factor episode airs Feb. 28.
