NBC's "Fear Factor" to Invade Jonesboro, Challenge Local Family

MAY 31, 2005 - Posted at 3:02 p.m. CDT

 

LOS ANGELES, CA - Next season, "Fear Factor" will ditch Los Angeles and head out across the U.S., invading communities to challenge fans to face their fears in an actual Fear Factor stunt on the fans' home turf - their house.  "Fear Factor Home Invasion" will visit Jonesboro and 20 other selected cities across the nation.

Casting directors are now searching for "energetic and fearless" households in Jonesboro.  To apply, applicants should send a recent picture of themselves, other members of their household, and photos of the inside and outside of their home to Jonesboro@FearFactor.com.  In addition, they should state who lives in the house, what the relationship is between occupants, all contact information, and why they feel their household is the one place in greater Jonesboro that should get "Fear Factor" to pay a visit. 

NBC has not yet released information on when the "Fear Factor" crew will visit Jonesboro.

"Home Invasion" is one of several changes going into a massive re-launch of the popular NBC program during the 2005-2006 season.
