There are many variants of the trust fall. In one type, the group stands in a circle, with one person in the middle with arms folded against his chest and falls in various directions, being pushed by the group back to a standing position before falling again. In another variant, a person stands on an elevated position (such as a stage, stepping stool or tree stump) and relies on multiple people to catch them. This variant is potentially more dangerous and often leads to injuries.
Furthermore, while the fall may establish trust in the exercise, "there is little evidence that this trust spills over into day-to-day life".
In 2010, the Comedy Central show Tosh.0 introduced a new variant of trust falls known as "surprise trust falls", which involved the host Daniel Tosh approaching random people in public, shouting "Trust Fall!" and falling into said person. Two years later, Blake Grigsby revived the surprise trust fall concept with a viral YouTube video called "Trust Fall Attack".
