A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series underscores the fact that some people will take major risks to win money. Occasional light references to racial stereotypes.
Positive Role Models
Contestants willingly risk being sent on death-defying stunts in hopes of winning cash. There's some ribbing between contestants, but most are too nervous to be intimidating.
Violence & Scariness
Losers are shot into the air, dumped into the water, pushed off moving trucks, flown out of the competition, dragged under water, etc. Contestants always wear protective gear. They are shown screaming for help or crying out in fear, but the contestants' condition after the stunt is over isn't shown or discussed.

The frightened contestants utter words like "crap," "damn," "hell," and lots of "oh my God" -- and rarely stronger curses, which are fully bleeped.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this game show features contestants participating in the type of action stunts normally performed by professionals that could lead to injury and/or death if tried at home. Contestants engaging in these stunts are often shown screaming (sometimes using bleeped expletives) out of real fear. Younger viewers may find it overwhelming or even a little scary.
Is It Any Good?
The series mixes fun trivia with the kind of suspense that will have viewers on pins and needles as they wait to see which of the terrified contestants will be making a spectacular exit at the end of each round. They'll also find some of the questions, which deal mostly with popular culture, fun to answer on their own.
The show isn't mean spirited, but folks may question why anyone would subject themselves to these kinds of crazy stunts. Some might wonder whether they'd have the guts to appear on a game show to face their fears if it meant winning money. Regardless, watching others who've already made that decision is entertaining.
