Guinea Pig

(24 x ½-hour factual entertainment series)

Magician, escape artist, and extreme performer Ryan Stock turns himself into a human guinea pig to test just how far the human body can go. Along with his personal and professional partner, Amberlynn Walker, Ryan travels all over North America – from a speedway in Las Vegas to a reptilian zoo in rural Ontario – to test the limits of pain, endurance, hypothermia, altitude, non-lethal weapons and more.
