If you had a tough time keeping that shot of Cuervo down, you aint seen nothing yet. Imagine if it was a dram of Tabasco sauce or fish oil. Could ya handle that? Youd have to, especially if you wanna survive Wheel of Fear Factor -- the weekly bar battle. Participants make like Pat Sajak, spinning a wheel and choosing letters in hopes of solving a frequently lurid word puzzle. If it stops on one of several Fear Factor spaces, theyll have a choice of completing some sort of disgusting duty -- like earning points for downing mayonnaise cupcakes -- or they forfeit their turn. Those who complete the tasks and the puzzle win such prizes as kegs or cases of beer.
