Do anything for money...

One of television show that I often watch is Fear Factor. The normal format involves three men and three women, or four teams of two people with a pre-existing relationship, who must complete three professional stunts in the fastest time to win US$50,000. The order of the stunts on a typical episode of Fear Factor is as follows: First Stunt The first stunt is designed to physically test each of the contestants, like jumping off a building to the next. Second Stunt The second stunt is meant to challenge the contestants mentally. It usually involves ingesting a revolting animal, such as a cockroach. It could also involve getting close to an animal which many people would find scary. Contestants were typically not eliminated after this stunt unless they could not (or refused to) complete it. In the case of teams, one team may be eliminated for performing the worst. Third Stunt The third and final stunt is usually something from a movie. It usually involves doing an extreme type stunt, such as flipping a car or escaping from a sinking aircraft fuselage. The player who wins this round wins the prize, usually fifty thousand U.S. Dollars. On one episode, one of the contestants have successfully pass the First Stunt. In the Second Stunt, resigned because he does not want eat flagitious food and say why people would do anything for money. What your opinion, will you do anything for money?

I have never watched Fear factor, but it doens't sound like something I would like to participate in. Sure I'd love to win a lot of money and I like to challenge myself, but I am not the kind of person who wants to participate in a tv show. There are many things I wouldn't do for money and becoming a contestant in a tv show is one of them. In a couple of weeks I am going to participate in medical study, and I know that it will be somewhat uncomfortable, but I can live with that as I get paid for doing it. I can't say that I would never do anything uncomfortable for money, but there are a lot of things that I wouldn't do.

This is what fear factor is all about. I don't think all people go their for money. Some of them love to do those stunts. You can take an example of Jackie chan. He is a master of stunts. He did it not only for money but also for his passion. I think same could be said about the contestnts here in fear factor.

Right, some people do things because for their passion. As an artist or a painter do the activities not just to earn money, because the results will be bad. That was meant here, when the conflict with their mind or illegal or may not lawful, whether they will still do so only to get money.
