Ludacris Takes A Bite Out Of A ‘Dung Beetle’ To Prep For ‘Fear Factor’

Jump to Comments


In case you missed it, Fear Factor is getting a reboot, with an all-new host: Ludacris! In preparation for the reality show revamp, the Fate of the Furious actor actually got in on some of the challenges.

Warning: if you don’t like gross bugs and people eating them, this probably isn’t the show for you. If you do, however, enjoy watching other people do outrageous things, then Fear Factor should be right up your alley.

In a teaser from MTV, Ludacris explains that he’s taking his new role as the show’s host very seriously. So seriously, that he claims to know the difference between a dung beetle and a leaf beetle.

“These are dung beetles — I clearly asked for leaf beetles,” Ludacris complains to a man in a lab coat and goggles in the promo after “biting” into a creepy bug. It’s totally gross… especially the sound the crunch makes.

He then explains that he is all about helping people conquers their fears. How does he do this? By testing out fear challenges on his lab techs, of course!

It looks like the new Fear Factor will be just as scary as the original. Do you agree?

Fear Factor premieres at 10 p.m. on MTV on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 (aka today!). Will you be tuning in?
