Scare Up Sundays When "Fear Factor" Returns With Ludacris
January 29, 2018 - “Fear Factor” returns with a new season of physical and psychological challenges that will push contestants to their limits like never before. The news comes on the heels of MTV’s second consecutive quarter of YoY ratings growth - the best streak in six years. Global superstar Ludacris returns to host and executive produce. The first ten, one-hour episodes will debut on Sunday, February 25th at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT with the remaining ten episodes slated for this summer. Internationally, the new season will begin airing in March.
Dubbed the “season from hell,” contestants must conquer insane challenges like escaping from a haunted house and freeing themselves from a buried coffin. Team pairings will consist of families, students, twins and ex’s who’ll tackle a “date from hell.” Only the bravest (and craziest) will walk away with the $50K cash prize and “Fear Factor” bragging rights.
