Welcome back to Part 2 of our Story.
13 years ago, my friend Shanti turned a free breakfast into a custom-made motorcycle and an all-expenses paid trip to Venezuela ...when she sort of, accidentally ended up as a contestant on Pyscho Fear Factor…, yes, you heard me correctly…. Psycho Fear Factor.
If you haven’t listened to part one of this story, we recommend you do so now…. It first aired on April 4th, 2019...we’ll be right here waiting for you when you come back.
So, Shanti and her boyfriend are on the Psycho Fear Factor and not only that, end up being surprise finalists...hence the motorcycle and vacation….
If you’re not familiar with Fear Factor, it was a popular NBC reality TV show, where the contestants competed in a variety of scary and gross stunts and dares for various grand prizes. The show was hosted by Joe Rogan, you might know him now the host of the popular Podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience. Fear Factor was rebooted in 2017 on MTV with Ludicris as the host.
The original Fear Factor aired from 2001 to 2006 and Shanti was lucky enough to appear in a special three episode arc called Psycho Fear Factor during the last season. Shanti and her then-boyfriend Clayton, were one of 6 couples competing on the show, which was centered around the real-life, uber-creepy Bates Motel set, on the set of the horror movie filmPsycho. In this Fear Factor, the contestants were required to sleep in the Motel.
I’ll never forget the night Shanti and I met… she was one of those people I just knew I was destined to be friends with. She’s gorgeous, enthusiastic, loves crystals (as do I) and is fun as hell to hang out with… plus her stories are hilarious and unbelievable. This probably wont’ be the last time you hear Shanti on our show… but enough talk… let’s get back to Shanti now on Psycho Fear Factor… when we left her last, she was about to eat something pretty disgusting….
Quick note: Today’s episode includes swear words.
