Catch the “Fear Factor” Extended Sneak Peek Here.  

ASIA, 17 May, 2018 – Hot on the heels of the success of the first season in Asia, “Fear Factor” returns with a brand new season of physical and psychological challenges on MTV that will push contestants to their limits like never before. Global superstar Ludacris will return to host and executive produce the show that’s filled with new stunts inspired by urban legends, popular scary movies and viral videos from today’s cultural zeitgeist.


Fear Factor Season 2 airs on Tuesday, 22 May at 7pm (WIB), 8pm (SG), and 9pm (MY). Catch the replays on Saturdays at the following timings:

·         10.40am (WIB), 11.40am (SG) and 12.40pm (MY)

·         7.00pm (WIB), 8pm (SG) and 9pm (MY).


Dubbed the “season from hell”, the 10 one-hour episodes will see contestants conquer insane challenges like escaping from a haunted house and freeing themselves from a buried coffin. Team pairings will consist of families, students, twins and ex’s who’ll tackle a “date from hell”. Only the bravest (and craziest) will walk away with the $50K cash prize and “Fear Factor” bragging rights.




#MTVFearFactor is calling out to the adventurers, thrill seekers, and the curious ones.
