View Full Version : Pool on Fear Factor

10-03-2005, 12:22 AM
Did anyone happen to see the Fear Factor episode (originally aired in 2002) where the contestants had to play pool -- it's on right now. They were terrible; they couldn't break, they couldn't shoot. They were just hitting the balls as hard as they could, hoping some ball would go in after hitting 5 rails.

Basically they had 5 shots to sink 4 balls. Whatever balls were left on the table, they had to eat whatever was symbolized on each remaining ball: live ants, fermented squid guts, egg of some type, and pepper.

I think this is one Fear Factor event where I would end up not having to eat anything (I'd be motivated to make every shot!!)

Go ahead and admit it, the fear alone would make you miss a straight in ball with nothing but the ferminted squid left on the buffet. Fear is my worst opponent, I've done some real snafus on simple outs(yes 1-ball outs too) when a lot in on the line, and seen the most of the best do the same. It all depends on where your fear factor kicks in to each individual...sid

I didnt see it but Joe Rogan was always in the pool hall when he was a small time comedian in the early /mid nineties so im sure that is wehre that came from.

Joe got to be a solid B player by the time he left for the West Coast.

I saw the episode. Small table and most everyone just banged them around. I also saw Joe Rogan on a Celibrity 8-ball pool event. He won and he is not a bad player.
