reality TV Fear Factor airs tonight; Omarosa, FOX News anchor fight on air.
Tonight’s final sweeps edition of Fear Factor features a cast of reality TV all-stars, and by “all-stars,” I mean C-listers who weren’t currently shooting a season of The Real World/Road Rules Challenge or wandering the streets of LA asking to borrow a quarter. The two-hour episode, which begins at 8 p.m. ET, will feature Omarosa from The Apprentice, Ryan Sutter and Trista Rehn (a cameo only) from The Bachelorette, Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca from Survivor, Reichen Lehmkuhl from The Amazing Race, and Nikki McKibbin from American Idol.

In addition to being the star of the previews NBC is running for the episode, Omarosa is making news on her own, having appeared live on FOX News’ Dayside recently. As the video shows, host Linda Vester and Omarosa got into a bit of an argument, and considering Vester is always pretends to be nonabrasive as she hurls questions with sharp edges, it’s fun to watch Omarosa try to do battle with her, although they both end up just being annoying. On, Vester writes (via TVNewser) that Omarosa is “the kind of person who likes to bait other people on TV to get people to talk about her. In a way, that’s sad–that ultimately gets you nowhere in the business world.” But isn’t that how you got your job, Linda?
