Fifth season of Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi with the tagline Darr ka Blockbuster went on air three years after its previous season on Colors channel on 22nd March 2014 and got concluded on 25th May 2014.
New Format and Host
Unlike previous seasons in which popular celebrities contested with each other by pairing up with a non celebrity partner, in the fifth season there were no partners and the popular and controversial male and female celebrities competed with each other individually.
Another change the fifth season action reality show has witnessed is the change of its Host. Rohit Shetty, popular Bollywood movie director replaced its previous host Akshay Kumar.
