Video: UFCs Joe Rogan previews the return of 'Fear Factor' on NBC tonight (Dec. 12)


Joe Rogan is a man of many talents.

When he's not cageside for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) as the sweaty, boisterous color commentator, he's busy with his stand-up comedy and his radio show.

And while he may be known for those things these days, he actually became famous by way of hosting NBC's "Fear Factor" from 2001 to 2006. Tonight (Dec. 12, 2011) at 8 p.m. ET, "Fear Factor" is back with none other than Rogan himself as the host.

He spoke a bit about his decision to return:

"They asked me to come back. That's what brought me back. I don't think I'd be happy if someone else was doing it. We did it for six years, 148 episodes. If somebody else was doing it, I think I'd be sad. So, I'm back. (It will be) bigger, badder, grosser -- all of the above."

After the jump, check out the full video preview for tonight's season premiere of "Fear Factor" with Joe Rogan:

The newest installment of "Fear Factor" promises to push the envelope more than ever before. Rogan is excited to be the man hosting it all as the ill-thought out stunts and wagers are broadcast in front of a camera for all of America to watch:
