You know how there’s too many musical competition in existence? And you know how Fear Factor is back on television? Well, imagine this: Combine those two concepts. Then, have Jackass star and attempting-to-be stand-up comedian Steve-O host the whole thing. Well, that’s what cable network TruTV is doing.
The show is called Killer Karaoke. And here’s the deal: Contestants are forced to sing popular songs while an ornery antelope kicks them in the genitals, or something like that. To be fair, it’s a show that “challenges contestants to break out in song in the midst of extreme, hilarious and sometimes skin-crawling physical challenges,” according to the network. So I’m picturing some idiotic frat dick stripped naked, waist deep in mollusk semen singing some shitty Steve Miller Band song, while Steve-O (wearing nothing but a jock strap) laughs hysterically nearby. And if the contestant makes it to, say, chorus number two before sobbing uncontrollably, he wins $150 (before taxes).
The show will debut later this year alongside the network’s established shows World’s Dumbest…, Hardcore Pawn, Vegas Strip, Operation Repo, Lizard Lick Towing and Storage Hunters. Steve-O should feel right at home.
