Panic Button

Add to Watchlist

Panic Button is a Canadian reality show in which participants are forced to face their worst fears. The show takes its name from the devices players carry with them, which can be pressed if they decide the experience of going through four progressive levels of tailor-made terror is just too much. There is no prize or reward; people go on the show simply for the experience of facing their fears, making it unique in terms of reality programming. Additionally, players are not competing against each other but rather against their own fears.

After first being put through a ring of fire inside a coffin, participants must navigate a complex maze--many do not even make it past this stage. Then come two levels whose content is specific to the fears of the player. Spiders, vermin, and snakes are just a few of the things contestants have faced, making the show entertaining, although perhaps not for the faint of heart.

Panic Button Full Episode Guide

  • Three fresh pairs and they're all wildcards. Dom's mother, Olivia, tries so hard to make it through to please her son and yet all he does is yell at her; good thing the Doctor always punishes bad manners. Olivia and Zara make the classic mistake of thinking that the facility is a typical haunted house. Levan and Matt are buds that don't like to think too hard about anything, and they really should have thought long and hard before entering our house.

  • A pair of musical sisters and a pair of hipsters enter the maze.

  • Erin and Garrett expected a good time while going through the facility; Ashlei and Lakeil stick together through thick and thin.

  • Karla and Koda come out of the gate strong,and look like real contenders until she comes face to face with a bunch of rats. Jamie and Rickey are the kind of couple that just loves to yell at each other. We give them so much to yell about, our hearing might never recover.

  • Ryan and Amy agree that yelling at each other is optimal; Liberty and Gianna are two tough girls who never scream, but they do yell, swear and puke.

  • Sam and Alex are long time friends and cool dudes; they love running their mouths and getting down to it, so we thought it would be cool to introduce them to our hipster tarantulas - it didn't go well. Krystal and Beautiful: two gals with sweet names, big attitudes and glass shattering screams.

  • Duos entering the maze include a lovey-dovey couple, a chatterbox pair and a relaxed twosome.

  • Cynthia and Brianna are friends who like to share everything, including a fear of the dark; Shane and his muscle-bound German friend Merla, think that being body builders makes them immune to panic.

  • Aaron and Robbie just might be the two toughest hairdressers in television history. But, is that really saying anything? Let's see who gets blown out. Dontee and Swift are childhood friends who are always looking for new experiences. You know, things like hiking, surfing and spending a night in a bug-infested coffin.

  • Phyllis and Greg have been married for 20 years, but they don't know everything about each other. Temperatures rise as they quickly discover what really makes the other squirm. Then, the self-proclaimed team Tiger Woods runs into a few problems when they meet team Scorpion Snake.

  • Big David and Tiny David used to date each other, but it didn't work out. To celebrate they take a ride down the tunnel of fear, and that doesn't work out either. Jessie calls her boyfriend Rob a freak of nature, and his nature gets fully freaked by the one thing he fears most.
