'Fear Factor' Gets Real -- Sort Of

6/8/2006 3:25 PM PDT
These days being a reality TV star is becoming a full-time job as former 'Survivor' and 'Real World' cast-offs make careers out of living their lives for all to see. These people will do anything and NBC is ready to cash in, casting a crew of these misfits in a three-episode arc of 'Fear Factor.'

Starting next Tuesday 'Survivor' Jonny Fairplay, 'Idol' rejects Anthony Fedorov and Carmen Rasmusen, Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin and Trishelle Cannatella of 'The Real World,' along with other "stars" from 'The Apprentice' and 'The Amazing Race,' will return to the small screen to compete for $150,000.

For those of you who want nothing more than to see these people dragged through the mud, look no further -- one of the stunts involves them crawling through an alligator infested swamp, covered from head to toe with filth.

'Reality Stars Fear Factor' premieres June 13 at 8:00 pm on NBC.
