Fear Factor Returning To NBC

| Filed under: TV NewsReality TV

Fear Factor returns

NBC is not afraid to revive its reality hit that forced contestants to lay in piles of insects, eat animal genitalia, or climb hundreds of feet into the air on flimsy helicopter ladders. Yes, we're talking about Fear Factor.

The success of The Voice, as well as Fear Factor repeat's exceptional viewership on sister cable channel Chiller, prompted the network to return to the action classic.

After being impressed by re-runs of the show himself, NBC’s head of alternative programming, Paul Telegdy, said:

“No one has come close to doing what they’ve done on that show. You go back and they’ve stood the test of time. It always had this incredible spectacle to it.”

Now they are going bigger and better! No word on if Joe Rogan will return to host the show or when it will premiere, but Telegdy continued to share:

“The stunt and camera technologies have evolved since then, we’re going to be able to make it even bigger. We’re going to make it more visually arresting.”

Sounds inneresting! Can't wait to see what kind of crazy stunts producers have up their sleeve this time!

Are U excited for the return of Fear Factor?

    Yes I actually am excited for the return of Fear Factor. The stunts were pretty awesome. The nasty eating not so much, but that wasn't the main feature anyway.

    Hope Joe Rogan is replaced. He was not likable and seemed to be nicer to the men on the show.

    Please get someone good natured and funny to replace Joe Rogan.

    I can't see Joe Rogan returning to fear factor. He makes a whole heck of a lot more money as a commentator for UFC then he ever made as a host for fear factor.

    Watching Fear Factor was a special family night tradition in our house. We'd gather around the tv with our 4 young boys and they would laugh and get grossed out together. Good times. Now that they are in their early teens I'm sure we'll do the same thing!

    Joe Rogan is AWESOME!! I hope he returns so I can watch him be awesome on this show rather than UFC!

    A cool challenge would be for the contestants to swim into a vat of shit and fish out Joe Rogan or any of the NBC execs who greenlighted this show (they would be perfectly camouflaged in there).

    I won Old Vs Young… I would love to come back and challange all the winners…. Would need a new partner though….
