BEHIND THE SCENES PRODUCTION PHOTOS
- Over the years Rats have gone in and out of style as a delicacy in France.
- The shoot in Times Square was plagued by heavy rains forcing the production to work under a tent.
- The rats eaten in this stunt where flown in from California.
Working in the pouring rain, Associate Stunt Producer Erin O’Brien and Gross Chef Josh Silberman prepare a bowl of hot Rat Stew.
While in New York, Fear Factor celebrated the shooting of it’s 100th episode, here are the remains of the cake.
