My friend Shanti loves to eat, so one day in 2006 when her college boyfriend invited her out for breakfast, she said yes, of course. Little did she know that would lead to being buried alive, eating spiders, having a soul-mate moment with a rat, swimming with snakes, and dealing with thousands of flying, hissing cockroaches.
This is Kim A. Flodin and welcome to How in the Hell did I get here?
We have a special couple of shows for you over the next two weeks! If you were a fan of a certain popular reality TV show hosted by a now uber popular podcast host, you’re going to love the next two episodes featuring our very special guest, Shanti Hendricks, also known as one of the FINALISTS on Psycho Fear Factor 2006.
If you’re not familiar with Fear Factor, it was an NBC reality TV stunt/dare show, hosted by Joe Rogan, now the host of the popular Podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience, and aired from 2001 to 2006. It was a crazy show filled with scary, gross and freaky stunts and dares. The show had contestants playing against each other for some sort of a grand prize.
Psycho Fear Factor: was a three-episode series during Fear Factor Season 6. Shant and her then boyfriend, Clayton, were one of six couples who would have to live through… I mean, compete, in six mind-bending and horrifying stunts for various cash and prizes.
For Psycho Fear Factor, the stunts were naturally centered around the creepy Bates Motel set of the original horror movie. Unlike other Fear Factor episodes, contestants were required to sleep in the dirty and scary Bates Motel between stunts and soon found out that anything could happen at anytime there.
I’d like you to meet my good friend and soul sister, Shanti Hendricks. You know how when meet certain people and you just know they are one of your tribe… it was like that the night I met Shanti. We gravitated towards each other like two moths to a flame and we were chatting like old friends from the minute we met. Shanti is gorgeous, energetic, generous, sweet and not afraid to tell it like it is. Picture Tinkerbell. We became fast friends and of course, just like myself, she’s had more than her share of How in the hell did I get here moments?
Today’s story is Part 1 of her Psycho Fear Factor adventure. Listen in as she tells how she sort of accidentally … I know, right, gets on the show and what happens next!
