Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Ludacris, this newest installment of FEAR FACTOR gives competitors the chance to conquer their fears head on. Filled with new stunts inspired by urban legends, popular scary movies and viral videos from today's cultural zeitgeist, FEAR FACTOR contestants confront their fears, be pushed beyond their comfort zones and take action against some of their biggest stressors. In the series opener, "Ice Is Thicker Than Water," Ludacris challenges teams of siblings to conquer their fears of cockroaches in Roachella and to take a trip to the morgue. But they must survive being trapped under ice to win $50,000. Season 2 of FEAR FACTOR premiered Sunday, February 25, 2018 at 7pm ET/PT on MTV, with physical and psychological challenges that push contestants to their limits like never before. Hosted again by Ludacris, this season -- dubbed the "season from hell" -- features team pairings that consist of families, students, twins and exes who'll tackle a "date from hell." Only the bravest (and craziest) walk away with the $50K cash prize and FEAR FACTOR bragging rights, after they conquer insane challenges like escaping from a haunted house and freeing themselves from a buried coffin. The first ten episodes of Season 2 debut on consecutive Sundays following the season opener, and the remaining ten episodes are slated for Summer 2018.
