Bert Kreischer of 'Bert the Conqueror' on 'Rachael Ray' On Tuesday's 'Rachael Ray,' Bert Kreischer of 'Bert the Conqueror' talked about cliff diving, wife-carrying, and shark diving. Those are just a few of the dangerous and dubious stunts Kreischer has done on his show, but he also revealed the one thing he absolutely would not do, and presented Ray with a challenge.

For a little perspective on what Kreischer will do, he had advice about jumping off a fifty foot cliff. "If you ever jump off a cliff, number one, keep your legs closed," he said. "I didn't do that. At fifty feet, you'll feel it." He also loved shark diving. "This is the most surreal, serene experience. You are surrounded by 10-foot, 400-pound sharks, in a cage. And it is overwhelming."

The one thing he won't do? "I'll tell you what I won't do, definitely," he said. "Skydiving." But even that's on the table. Ray told him she's a big fan of skydiving, and advised him that if he tries it, he'll love it for life. Kreischer countered by asking if Ray would bungee jump, and she balked. "I will go skydiving with you if you do the challenge I come up with," he said. So look for a very special episode of 'Rachael Ray,' in the near future.

Sam Champion and Bert the Conquerer Interrupt 'GMA' From a Scissor Lift (VIDEO)

Bert Kreischer and Sam Champion take a ride on a scissor lift on 'Good Morning America'Back in May, Bert Kreischer (of 'Bert the Conqueror') terrified himself and Sam Champion by riding an old wooden roller coaster and a wild amusement park cliff swing. Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Champion got his little revenge by putting Kreischer on a scissor lift that popped up outside the studio window during a segment.

Champion estimated the lift took them three and a half or four stories up. To Kreischer, it felt more like five. "I thought it was just the glare of the light," said Champion, "but Bert is actually bright red." Kreischer pointed out that birds were circling them as Champion said Kreischer genuinely doesn't like heights. "Or being on a fifty-foot roller skate," added Kreischer.

Regardless of Kreischer's overwhelming fear, he did say that Times Square looked "gorgeous" from their vantage point. Gorgeous enough that he wanted to look at it up close, from ground level.

Sam Champion Takes Terrifying Roller Coaster Rides With Bert the Conqueror (VIDEO)

Sam Champion and Bert Kreischer of 'Bert the Conqueror' on 'Good Morning America'For the Reality Week Challenge on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Sam Champion drew 'Bert the Conqueror,' and wound up taking on, as he described them, "two of the most terrifying rides you could ever strap yourself into." One was a wooden roller coaster that gets as tall as 100 feet high, and plunges you to the bottom at 60 miles per hour.

"Between the two of us, we sounded like a women's Wimbledon match," said 'Conqueror' host Bert Kreischer, giving his quick impression of the staccato screams he and Champion let out on the ride.

That was nothing compared to a swing the positions you face down as it takes over a 1300-foot drop over a cliff. Champion may not have eased his death grip on Kreischer's arm yet.

Bert the Conqueror Cries After Skydiving on 'Rachael Ray'On 'The Rachael Ray Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Bert Kreischer of 'Bert the Conqueror' made good on a promise to Rachael Ray to attempt skydiving. After the challenge, Kreischer was either so terrified or uplifted (or both) by the experience that he actually cried.

"I don't know how I got into this. I don't want to be responsible for any of my own life. I don't want to pull the cord," said Kreischer, adding that he much prefers simply hanging onto a thrill ride instead.

Bert the Conqueror Agrees to Face His Greatest Fear on 'Rachael Ray'Thrill-seeking Bert Kreischer of 'Bert the Conqueror' accepted a challenge from Rachael Ray to face his greatest fear -- skydiving. And he did so in typically unabashed fashion, while shirtless and wearing a luchador mask on 'The Rachael Ray Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

During a past appearance on 'Rachael Ray,' Kreischer seemed awfully hesitant to throw himself out of a plane. However, this time, he boldly walked out in a wrestling outfit after being introduced by professional announcer Michael Buffer and vowed to Ray that he's ready.

How Bert Kreischer Conquered The Travel Channel's 'Bert the Conqueror'

Bert Kreischer, host of 'Bert the Conqueror' on The Travel ChannelComedian Bert Kreischer has come a long way from his seven-year tenure as a perma-partying undergrad at Florida State University. Fellow students knew him as a funny, raucous freak who could turn any room into an out-of-control throwdown, filled with wild laughter, crazy stories and jokes, a distinction that scored him national attention thanks to a popular profile in Rolling Stone.

Since then, he's taken his knack for friendly wisecrackery on the road with stand-up shows that routinely end with a few beer-inspired challenges. He's even brought his unique sense of fun to television with the one-man pain factory show on FX, 'Hurt Bert,' and his thrill-seeking challenge show of extreme rides, dips and dives on The Travel Channel, 'Bert the Conqueror.'

How is that an improvement from his days as the "Number One Party Animal" in the nation? For starters, now he gets paid for it.
