Ludacris will host the new series, where contestants will pair up into four teams to compete for $50,000 in cash
Be very afraid. MTV says it is reviving the stunt competition series Fear Factor.
Ludacris will host the new series, which premieres May 30, MTV announced on Wednesday.
The new Fear Factor promises to “hit on youth tension points” with challenges such as Roach-ella, Trap Queen and personal cell phone rescues at heights of more than 30 metres. On each episode, contestants will pair up into four teams — whether siblings, roommates or best friends — to compete for $50,000 (Dh183,650) in cash.
MTV promises that contestants will confront their fears, be pushed beyond their comfort zones and take action against some of their biggest stressors on the show.
Fear Factor originally aired on NBC from 2001-06.
