'Fear Factor' Is Back!
October 21, 2011
The last few years have seen a couple of imitators (Wipeout, 101 Ways To Leave A Game Show) find ratings success, so it's no big surprise NBC decided to revive Fear Factor for a new generation.
Starting this December, the original nerve-jangling, lunch-losing, skin-crawling TV competition show returns and by the looks of this just-released teaser trailer, the last five years haven't dulled the producer's desire to make America sick one little bit. In fact, they've only upped the ante as contestants are put through the wringer.
No, seriously, I think I saw someone getting pulled through a painful wringer in this clip that will repeatedly make you yell, "OH!"
Fear Factor premieres December 12 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
