MTV to revive 'Fear Factor' -- with rapper Ludacris as host

If you're squeamish, stay away from MTV!

The network has announced that it's reviving "Fear Factor," the high-intensity reality show where competitors complete nightmarish tasks, from eating sheep eyes to enduring the "tarantula tunnel." The show originally ran from 2001 to 2006 on NBC.

Given MTV's audience, the revival will definitely have millennial twists. And with rapper Ludacris as host, there may even be some celebrity appearances!

Can Luda keep his composure as well as past host Joe Rogan? Even if he has a strong stomach, we have a feeling he'll balk at some of the repulsive challenges.
