Tonight’s episode of Criss Angel’s hit Spike TV series “Believe” is one scary ride for at least three fans who agree to let the “Mindfreak” magician drive them blindfolded from Henderson onto the Strip.
Criss had a hood placed over his head, which was then duct taped tight before he was led behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Sonic parked in the driveway from his home with the three terrified passengers. Four cameras recorded the action inside the vehicle, and another two filmed from outside.
Criss told me that his production people won permission from local police departments for the nail-biting stunt, as he didn’t want any roadways shut down for the once-in-a-lifetime, hair-raising adventure.
Miraculously, his fans and he live to tell the story without crashes or injury, but to say it’s a thrill ride of a lifetime would be an understatement. In a less-scary segment, Criss attempts to become the first person in history to vanish a herd of elephants in the middle of an open field.
