10 Dares That Went Horribly Wrong

Horrific tales of equal parts bravery and stupidity...

Everyone's been coerced into doing something they'd rather not do, all in the name of a dare. From frazzled eyebrows, to embarrassing photographic evidence, we've all got something to show from a dare that seemed like a good idea at the time. Most of the time, such dares are just (relatively) harmless fun - if a bit irresponsible. Unfortunately, some people aren't fortunate enough to get away with just a bit of social media embarrassment. On occasion, the phrase "I dare you..." has led to some incredibly perilous situations, often in a way that no one could have predicted. In the instances where this has had a fatal outcome, it can be tricky to discern just how much blame can be attributed to the darer. This article takes a look at ten dares that went horribly wrong for those involved. The initial dares range from the mundane to the outright ridiculous, but in each situation the outcome hasn't favoured the dare recipient. From terrifying encounters that were barely survived, to tragically fatal disasters, each of these entries turned out to be some of the nastiest dares ever concocted. Several of these entries contain graphic video content that our more sensitive readers may find disturbing, so it's advisable to proceed with caution.
