Awww yes, there is nothing like watching a human being chow down on bull balls, crickets or eyeballs; which is why we are thrilled for the return of Fear Factor. 

The former hit NBC competition is being revived by MTV and has enlisted none other than rapper Ludacris to host and executive produce the program.

Luda, who is hot on his promotional tour for The Fate of the Furious and the release of new music, said in a statement:

“I am excited to kick off my partnership with MTV, starting with the relaunch of Fear Factor, which will be even more insane and ludicrous than what you remember. This will be the first of many great projects together.”

Chris McCarthy, president of MTV, VH1 and Logo, added:

 “MTV is about celebrating youth culture, and with the reinvented Fear Factor, we are putting the power in our audience’s hands to face and overcome their biggest fears. We are thrilled to partner with Ludacris, one of the biggest global stars who has a rich history with MTV, to energize this franchise for a whole new generation.”

The new series, which premieres Tuesday, May 30 at 10 p.m., will be “inspired by urban legends, scary movies and online videos.” The hourlong episodes will feature eight contestants whose bodies will be tested beyond comfort level all for a $50k cash prize.

For all you youngsters out there, Fear Factor was a show that ran from 2001 and 2006. The program was inspired by the Dutch show called Now or Neverland and was … THE BEST EVER!

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
