SECU has since featured Ferden in a television commercial where he says, "You know, when I was on Fear Factor I had to do some crazy things to win. But when it comes to my money, I don't take any chance, I belong to State Employees Credit Union." Ferden's Fear Factor victory came after he swam under a lake of fire and munched on live worms.
