Looks like MTV will be reviving the old TV series Fear Factor as the the network has ordered 12 episodes to be hosted by Ludacris. This time; however, the show will be given a different spin.
The Hollywood Reporter writes:
The new incarnation will flip the script on its targeted Generation Z audience and instead of gross-out challenges (like eating worms), will be more playful with the hope of providing a cathartic tension release along the way. The newly designed stunts are geared at tapping into visceral fears of today’s anxious youth — such as couch surfing at 300 feet and waterlogging personal cellphones.
Inspired by urban legends, scary movies and online videos from the zeitgeist, contestants will be pushed beyond their comfort zones where their body’s physiological responses will take over.
