One Brave challenger has been selected
Our search for a daring individual is over—we’ve selected a winner to take on one of their biggest fears for $1,031. Check out how they plan to overcome their fear here.
Will You Confront a Fear for $1,031?
From snakes and spiders to heights and public speaking, Americans far and wide have fears that keep them up at night. With Halloween just around the corner, there’s no better time to bring these fears front-and-center.
As safety experts who are fascinated by phobias, YourLocalSecurity.com is taking the Most Searched Phobias in America to the next level—and we’re bringing you along for the ride. While some people stay away from these relatable fears, we’re looking for someone who wants to say “bring it on” and face a fear on their list for a chance to win $1,031.
In the fifth iteration of the Most Searched Phobias in America, the team found that the states that are searching the most for “fear of water” tend to live close to bodies of water. Additionally, “fear of failure” has skyrocketed and is now the most-searched fear in 10 states as opposed to four. No matter which fear topped your state, we want to hear what makes your hair stand on end, and show you how to face your fears, one task at a time.
What you'll need to do
If you think you’re up for the challenge, submit your application and let us know what your fear is, why you want to face it, and why you should be chosen. The team at YourLocalSecurity.com will review applications and, if you’re chosen, we’ll pay for you to confront that fear head on. Are you afraid of heights? Go have fun at a climbing gym! Scared of clowns? Circus tickets are coming your way!
Once the tasks are complete, you’ll have an extra $1,031 in your pocket for a job well done.
Choose a common fear
Before you apply, spend some time thinking about what really makes your skin crawl. Some of the most popular fears in America include:
Or pitch your personal fear
Are you so bold that none of the popular fears get to you? Tell us what does! As long as your fear isn’t too dangerous and doesn’t compromise your personal information, we’re happy to help you overcome it.
Are you the braveheart we're looking for?
We want a hero that is unashamed of their fear and wants to empower themselves to confront it head-on. Do you ask others to handle spiders for you? Would you only go bungee jumping if someone paid you? Now’s your chance to step up to the challenge, have some fun getting spooked, and put some extra money in your pocket this October.
Nothing is spookier than missing a deadline…
