Remember watching Fear Factor and cringing as contestants had to put their hands in a tank full of snakes? Or that one time people ate spiders to win a car? Well MTV says they’re rebooting the series but with a twist. There will be no Joe Rogan this go around, and the scenarios are a little less cringe-worthy, unless you’re a millenial. The network is trading in eating worms, touching rats, snakes, etc. for challenges like “couch surfing at 300 feet and waterlogging personal cellphones,” things cringeworthy enough for younger generations. The 12-episode reboot of Fear Factor will feature host and executive producer, Ludacris and premieres on MTV on May 30, at 10pm. More info here.
What do you think? Will you watch? Or should they bring back the bull testicles?
