Check Out the New 'Fear Factor' Trailer (VIDEO)

If you've been champing at the bit waiting to see the new 'Fear Factor,' wait no more: The new trailer's just been unveiled. And we think the rebooted, HD version of the show looks awesome.

As host Joe Rogan -- who doesn't seem to have aged one bit since the show last aired -- says, "'Fear Factor' is back. And it's crazier than ever." The new show has all the classic 'FF' stuff that fans love, but in bigger doses: Choppers, flames, people falling off things and onto things, coughing, screaming, crying, laughing, buxom girls in string bikinis, explosions, car crashes, gross eating challenges and lots of insects.

Check it out after the jump. And don't forget (all together now ... ): "The stunts you are about to see were all designed and supervised by trained professionals. They are extremely dangerous and should not be attempted by anyone, anywhere, anytime!"

As the voiceover says, 'Fear Factor' is old-school reality TV. Originally debuting in 2001 at "the dawn of reality television" as a rival for CBS' 'Survivor,' NBC aired six seasons before canceling it in 2006 due to low ratings.

Earlier this week, Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at NBC, said "We have taken the groundbreaking 'Fear Factor' franchise that many fans remember fondly and have ramped it up to make it even more challenging and competitive than ever before. ... Once again, the contestants will have to face their ultimate fears to prevail -- and the tension and drama of that process will make for some riveting television."



'Fear Factor' premieres Monday, Dec. 12 at 8PM ET on NBC.
