Hosted by Thapelo Mokoena, Fear Factor South Africa is a slick South African version of the heart-stopping, adrenalin pumping and internationally successful series that taps into everyone’s most primal fears.  Fear Factor South Africa is a stunt-based show that tests contestants’ ability to overcome their fears and to accept extreme challenges. From eating cockroaches and animal testicles, to being tied by the ankles to a 4X4 and dragged through sand and mud, surviving fast-rising water while being chained inside a tank, to wading through elephant dung to find hidden objects, contestants never know what to expect next.
