13: Fear Is Real is a 2009 American horror reality television series which premiered on January 7, 2009.
The show involved 13 people competing against each other to avoid elimination in situations utilising their "deepest fears". 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 will 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. The death box was introduced, in which whoever possessed it had the power to kill off one to three other players. The death box had to be hidden, used and found in safety, for if someone else knew they had the box, they could accuse them and be sent to the execution ceremony. If there was a false accusation made, the accuser would then have to go to the execution ceremony.
Each week, one or two unlucky victims 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.
13: Fear Is Real is produced by Magic Molehill Productions, Inc. and Warner Horizon Television Inc. in association with Jay Bienstock Productions and Ghost House Pictures with executive producers Jay Bienstock (Survivor, The Apprentice), Sam Raimi (the Spider-Man films, the Evil Dead films) and Robert Tapert (the Evil Dead films, The Grudge films).
Not much is known about the mastermind. In the last episode, it is revealed he had a brown bag with the prize-$66,666. When Ted stumbles to the cabin, he sees the "supposed" mastermind, but it is really a dummy wearing a solid white mask covering the face. KILLED
