Thirteen people compete to "stay alive" as they face their deepest fears in an all-out elimination competition and scare-fest. Pitted against each other in situations straight from the horror movies, the 13 will face shocking surprises, psychological scares and lots of "beware of the dark" moments, all designed by a "mastermind" of terror. In addition to frightening them, he'll also entice individuals to work in concert with him and against the others, creating a situation in which the 13 will not only look over their shoulders but will also never be certain who is real before them.
Each week, one unlucky victim will be "killed off" via frightening challenges and game-playing until only one person is left to win the grand prize of - fittingly - $66,666.
Did anyone watch this? I have to say I found it quite good. I lived in New Orleans for 7 years and there is no way in all the world you could drag me to spend multiple nights in the bayou, much less under circumstances where if I walk outside in the pitch black I could get "taken" by random guys in black and tied to chairs, blindfolded. No way, no how. Even though it's just a reality show, the bayou has nutria, alligators, rats, roaches, voodoo, and crazy hillbillies who hang the confederate flag with pride, and I would certainly not spend one second out there at night time. This isn't like some "haunted" mansion that doesn't really have ghosts. The bayou actually is packed with real life creepy stuff.
When that Leah chick said she couldn't imagine anything worse than "this", I thought to myself "you mean, besides the cold sore on your lip?" -yes I'm mean and evil.
