NBC To Bring Back ‘Fear Factor’

NBC is reviving “Fear Factor,” the reality show that boasted challenges ranging from daring to gross.

“Fear Factor” aired on NBC from 2001 to 2006 with host Joe Rogan. The network said Thursday it’s ordered new episodes but didn’t announce an air date or whether Rogan would return.

“Fear Factor” contestants, supervised by Hollywood stunt coordinators, will face challenges that test their endurance and mental resolve, NBC said.

In the original series, challenges also included eating bugs or other unusual menu items. The contestant who wins the final challenge takes home the prize, NBC said.

The network didn’t specify if the prize would be more than the $50,000 awarded in the original “Fear Factor.”
