Thats what Kunitz, the executive producer of Fear Factor confessed to a live audience at the June 2 launch of the new Fear Factor Live exhibit at Universal Orlando.
The theme parks newest addition lets guests put their stomach and their nerves to the test in a live version of the TV show.
Kunitz told reporters that a team at Universal watched every episode of Fear Factor to create the stunts for the live audience format like tossing dead squid and hanging on for dear life from a three-story drop but he did not participate himself.
Kunitz says he doesnt test stunts for the TV show anymore.
He says he used to test some stunts until the shows insurance company said no more to him and host Joe Rogan participating.
These days, Kunitz says the TV show uses a stunt man and when they need someone to eat one of their nasty concoctions, they pay someone in their office $100 to do it.
