THE FEAR FACTOR FILE
STUNT: SWAMP COURSE
LOCATION: SABLE RANCH, CA
DESCRIPTION: Couple will have to collect three skulls hidden in a swamp. The first skull is hidden in the bottom of a fifteen-foot well; the second in a pit of quicksand and the third and final skull is tucked behind the hind legs of a 7ft Alligator burrowed into a muddy bank. Once the couple has retrieved all three skulls the couple must return the skulls to the bank where they will place them on top of three sticks. The couple that takes the greatest amount of time to complete the stunt will be eliminated.
PRODUCTION STUNT DIAGRAM
- The pit of quicksand was approximately four feet deep.
- Most injuries associated with quicksand are not the result from being pulled under but rather from the victims having their limbs pulled from their sockets during a rescue attempt.
- A seven-foot alligator is capable of delivering 3000lbs of bite pressure and can rip a human arm off in less than three seconds.
