Joe Rogan, who served as Fear‘s gross master general during the show’s original run from 2001 to 2006, has officially signed on to host the upcoming reboot, TV Guide Magazine reports.
“It doesn’t seem real,” Rogan told the mag. “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.”
NBC has commissioned eight episodes of Fear Factor 2.0 to premiere as early as September.
