THE FEAR FACTOR FILE
STUNT: MOTHER'S KITCHEN
LOCATION: BURBANK, CA
DESCRIPTION: A mother & son team must dunk their heads into dirty sinks filled with hair and gross sludge and retrieve keys with their mouths before unlocking a cupboard filled with large snakes to retrieve soup cans filled with scorpions. They will then transfer them with their mouths onto a scale. When a pre-determined weight is on the scale two straws will rise out of the counter top, which will be used to transfer rotten milk. The stunt is complete when all the rotten milk has been transferred.
