MTV To Revive Fear Factor Stunt Competition Series

MTV announced on Wednesday that it will revive the popular stunt competition series Fear Factor next month. 

The Associated Press reports that the new version of the show will "hit on youth tension points" and will include challenges such as "Roach-ella," ''Trap Queen" and personal cellphone rescues at heights of over 100 feet. 

Each episode will feature four teams competing for $50,000 in cash. 

Fear Factor originally aired on NBC from 2001 to 2006.

The rebooted version will be hosted by rapper and actor Ludacris and is set to premiere on May 30.
