Status: Partially Found

Hurl! is a partially found game show that aired on G4 (a technology and gaming television channel), from July 16th, 2008, to September 19th, 2008, at 9 pm ET airing usually on Sunday besides the first episode that aired on a Tuesday. The show during its life only airing 11 episodes with each episode lasting 20 minutes apiece.

The concept of Hurl! was to compete in an eating competition eating oversized portions of food in a short amount of time, then having to ride carnival rides such as a tilt-a-whirl, or a roller coaster without puking, all to win $1000. Contestants use tactics such as fake puking to make their opponent puke. and belches to help then not puke.

G4 during this time was transitioning less from gaming and more into general content, along with its technology and gaming content. This game show was the 2nd game show airing on G4 at the time, along with Ninja Warrior which was a subtitled version of Sasuke. Many News outlets such Ryan Berenz from Channel Guide magazine reviewed all of the episodes when they were released; this being the only way of knowing what the episodes were about and who competed in the episodes. The show itself is censored with animated buckets covering up the puke, but uncensored versions were aired later than the first airings. Out of the eleven episodes only one episode is available and was uploaded on to YouTube in 2017. The only other clips available are promos, behind the scenes footage, and a clip of failures. In a quote from The Washington post they said Hurl!, in other words, is for people who found Fear Factor much too nuanced and intellectually complex."
