College holds second Fear Factor Live event

Lycoming College held its second Fear Factor Live event March 20 in Lamade Gymnasium. The winners were Terrell Nixon and Cody Marshall. 

Events included “Slurp but don’t burp,” a relay where runners had to keep a mixture of horseradish, oatmeal, warm mayonnaise, cottage cheese, fish heads and olives in their mouth and transfer it to a glass at the other end of the gym; “Fear Factor Pizza,” where students raced to eat a pizza made with canned dog food, sardines, anchovies, fish eyes, horseradish and baby food; and “Got Milk,” where participants were locked and chained in an ice bath and their partner had to dig through a swimming pool filled with garbage and cow parts to find the key.

The competition was arranged by the Campus Activities Board with 12 teams competing for $75 gift cards.
