Joe Rogan, Fear Factor

NBC will premiere what it's calling the "bigger and more outrageous" version of Fear Factor on Dec. 12, the network announced Wednesday.

Fear Factor will take over The Sing-Off's 8/7c timeslot a week after the singing competition wraps Season 3. Hosted once again by Joe Rogan, the show will follow the same format of the original — awarding $50,000 to the team that overcomes their fears and wins the final challenge.

Upcoming challenges will include tasks called "Towering Inferno" and the "Helicopter TNT Crash."

"We have taken the groundbreaking Fear Factor franchise that many fans remember fondly and have ramped it up to make it even more challenging and competitive than ever before," NBC's President of Alternative and Late Night Programming Paul Telegdy said in a statement. "Once again, the contestants will have to face their ultimate fears to prevail -- and the tension and drama of that process will make for some riveting television."
