The recently announced NBC revival of Fear Factor will have a familiar voice urging its contestants to hurry up and eat those testicles, as original host Joe Rogan has just signed a deal to return. Rogan spoke to TV Guide about coming back to the show that made his name synonymous with sadistic stunts, saying, β€œIt doesn't seem real. It seems like some sort of bizarro dream world. But I'm looking forward to it. The idea of sitting at home and watching someone else host it would have driven me crazy." As before, Rogan says he hopes to bring the same combination of qualities that got him the job the first time around, namely β€œa background in competitive athletics along with being a standup comedian.” So bad news, once again, for wrestler-turned-comic Mick Foley.
