Really. Based on this trailer, the new Fear Factor debuting Dec. 12 is exactly what NBC has described: Just like the old reality hit, only ramped up to another level. Contestants get blown up, yanked out of office building windows, crash cars through trains, eat live scorpions and – potentially the most horrifying stunt of all for the bawling blonde in this clip – get their head shaved.
Reality show revivals have struggled in the past (American Gladiators? The Mole?), but I can see this adrenaline-heavy reboot of Fear Factor performing strong in the ratings. See what you think, trailer below:
