Violence & Scariness
Folks scream in fear, fall hard, throw up, etc. Safety gear is used when challenges get more perilous. Contestants must brave potentially dangerous animals and insects like snakes, alligators, and scorpions. Scenes from contestants’ videos also show folks being slimed, hitting things with various body parts, and doing their own gross or risky stunts.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that #1 Chicken features YouTube content creators competing in a range of dangerous challenges that can potentially lead to serious injury or death. Viewers of all ages should be reminded to never try these challenges at home. Contestants come in contact with dangerous reptiles and insects, and people are shown falling and hitting the ground, yelling out in fear or pain, and vomiting. There's some cursing, too (words like "ass," "bitch," "damn," and "shit" are audible, but "f--k" is bleeped). The overall show is a promotional vehicle for the social influencer cast.
Is It Any Good?
The socially irresponsible series features YouTube creators competing in extremely uncomfortable, gross, and potentially dangerous contests for self-promotion and entertainment purposes. FaZe Rug, who is known for his outlandish pranks and challenges, delights in the discomfort of the contestants. Meanwhile, the cast, who openly express their concerns and fears about participating, and who clearly struggle through each event, never offer any reason for putting themselves through the entire ordeal. But many of the extreme challenges, which in reality are being overseen by off-camera stunt and safety professionals, can be replicated with some ease. As a result, #1 Chicken will draw in viewers who like this sort of thing, but can be a recipe for disaster by those hankering for their own adrenaline fixes, or who are hoping to elevate their own social media status.
