'Fear Factor' to return to NBC in fall 2011 with Joe Rogan as host   [View Full Version]
pmoney » Posted 10/13/10 10:40:00PM

Way before he was the popular color commentator for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Joe Rogan was a struggling stand up comedian and C-level actor on "NewsRadio."

His "big break" came in 2001, when he debuted as the host of "Fear Factor," a stunt-oriented reality show on NBC that challenged ordinary people, and couples, to accomplish extraordinary daredevil feats for average (by today's standards) sums on money.

On the side Rogan, a mixed martial arts (MMA) enthusiast, was doing play-by-play for a struggling promotion for next to nothing. He was merely a fan, a quasi-popular celebrity, who essentially traded out his talents for the best seat in the house every few weekends.

I hope this isn't a preamble to Joe leaving the UFC....unless it means that they are bringing in Bas.

No, even before he decided, he made it clear that he wouldn't put this in front of his UFC gig.

Make them eat human ****, like in the movie 'The Ladies Man'.

Wish I could find a clip of that. Where they are eating all the bar food.

I will watch it, maybe they will add a new element to the show, it was getting kind of stale.

I'm surprised he'd do this again. Funny.

Joe once said on a standup that back then he talked to his manager and said that he wanted to host a show that was going to get cancelled right away and when he heard about fear factor where he gets to watch people do stunts and eat ****ed up bugs and disgusting things he jumped all over it and said yeah that'll get cancelled immedtiately.

Not only was the show a success but they want to bring it back, wow... I'm watching it.
