Written by Intern || @micahkimberley

Remember NBC’s ‘Fear Factor,’ the show that had insane competitions daring contestants to face their fears for cash?

If you do, it’s back with an all new look.

The hit reality show originally premiered in 2001 and aired for six seasons, then made its way back in 2011 for one additional season with Joe Rogan as host.

This time around, it will relaunch on MTV as its new home network with rapper, Ludacris, as the new host.

The episodes will be an hour long featuring eight contestants with four teams of two battling it off for a cash prize of $50,000.

Along with these changes, a press release stated that the show will take aim at “youth tension points with challenges including ‘Roach-ella,’ ‘Trap Queen,’ and personal cell phone rescues at heights of over hundred feet.”

Check out the new season premiere Tuesday, May 20 at 10 p.m. ET.
