Bringing Back The Original Scarefest
2 June 2017 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

Since the original "Fear Factor" aired, many reality shows have incorporated some of the FF standards, like eating disgusting insects or scaling heights, into their challenges. As a result, some of these stunts may feel passe.

But MTV has resurrected the show, starring Ludicrous as host.

In the first round, four teams of two play "Beat the Beast" and face something creepy and crawly. After the losing team is eliminated, the remaining three teams play "Face Your Fear", where the stunts are tailored to the contestants' personal fears. Then the remaining two teams play "Final Fear".

The first episode involves hissing cockroaches, claustrophobia, and a water-related stunt that is actually scary. The winning team wins $50,000.

Not a show for everyone, but by now, everyone should know if it is for them.
