Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: Fear Factor 2.0 is F*cking Crazy

(Video courtesy of NBC)

Free-falling from 600 feet in the air.

Jumping from a burning platform you are standing on while ten stories in the air.

Plummeting 400 feet head first through multiple floors of a wooden structure.

Leaping from a moving bus onto a rope dangling from a helicopter that then drops you onto a speeding boat, that promptly takes you to another helicopter, which dangles you over a barge with gas-filled oil drums while you blow the motherfucker up with a flare gun.

These are four of my recurring nightmares, which all happen to be stunts from the return season of Fear Factor.

According to the show’s producer and host Joe Rogan, an increase in stunt technology has allowed them to multiply the,  ”Holy shit!” factor by 1000 and the result of the equation should be infinite entertainment when NBC launches Fear Factor 2.0 in December.

Joe sums up the reboot perfectly with two simple sentences:

“It’s the old show, plus is what it is,” he explained. “It’s the old show, but it went up a notch.”

Seriously, some of these stunts seem like torture techniques used on the Taliban to extract the whereabouts of Bin Laden. Luckily for us, people are money-hungry attention whores.

The season premiere takes place on December 12 on NBC.

That was a good one too. Used to watch all the time. But Big Bang is hysterical. Don't be mad if you can't understand most of the big words. I don't either.

I know you aren't dissing Big Bang Theory, Todd. Don't make me have to speak sternly to you anonymously over the internet.

@sho nuff

@ jtc, Wow really? You are upset about Community getting taken off air? Well at least you still have The Big Bang Theory and running your head into a wall.

I fucking hate reality television with a passion. Good for Joe Rogan, I guess though. It took 7 seasons of The Ultimate Fighter to convince me to sit down and watch it but at least that's MMA. I won't be watching this shit.

Looks just like he said. Same show, just turned up a notch. Looking forward to it.

Looks sick.

Also, torture didn't nab bin Laden, good old fashioned police work did. Give credit where credit is due, yo. -- JC Cop
