Ludacris may not be a seeing his name signed atop Billboard charts these days, but that certainly hasn’t stopped the Atlantan hitmaker from signing his name on some hefty contracts.
The rapper, who’s seen the latter half of his career dedicated more to roles on the small and big screens, has also been bitten by the hosting bug. But, as if hosting the Billboard Music Awards wasn’t enough for his resume, the ‘Move B*tch’ beau is moving to MTV after inking a production deal that will see him develop new programming for the
former music network.
The first of said developed programming? A ‘Fear Factor’ reboot:
Luda’s not only serving as the show’s host, but will also executive produce. The gross and often stomach-churning competition will see its guests duke and puke it out for a grand prize of $50,000.
“I am excited to kick off my partnership with MTV, starting with the relaunch of ‘Fear Factor,’ which will be even more insane and ludicrous than what you remember,” said Ludacris. “This will be the first of many great projects together.”
Catch MTV’s “Fear Factor” reboot with Ludacris when it premieres on Tuesday, May 30 at 10pm ET/PT.
