Crossing a rolling beam above freezing waters, moving cow's eyes or live crablets using the mouth, and diving underwater to free a doll trapped in a car.
These are just some of the challenges that the twelve daring participantes will have to face when ABS-CBN's biggest reality game show Pinoy Fear Factor: Argentina, South America premieres on November 10.
The show brings together twelve fit, strong, and agile men and women who will have to hurdle heart-thumping and gut-wrenching stunts and challenges or face elimination.
The last person standing will be proclaimed the first El Ultimo Participante of Pinoy Fear Factor, winning the grand prize of P2 million and a house and lot from Avida.
