I wouldn't get too psyched. The producers of Fear Factor have given the show a modern makeover. What that entails remains to be seen. Until then, I'm going to remain highly skeptical.

Also, I don't know how much of Hulk Hogan doing commentary I'll be able to tolerate.

The words "modern makeover" do not sit well with me. The fact that the FEAR FACTOR guys are behind this doesn't help either.

I better see camel toes, wild hair and common folk getting the shit kicked out of them by trained athletes.

Could be fun, but if it's the makers of Fear Factor I expect a lot of staged bullshit and WWE theatrics. The original show wasn't high class entertainment but I gather it wasn't as staged as this has the chance to be.

Summing up: I'm iffy on it.

Apparently Joust and several other events take place over a pool; also, when a contender wins in Assault, apparently the Gladiator flies backward via a harness 35 feet into a pool.

They should have flame throwers.
