I love Steve-O and am happy he’s cleaned his life up, got sober and is still making us laugh our asses off.
It’s not exactly Jackass, but his new show, Killer Karaoke, combines Fear Factor with American Idol, and the result is a Japanese gameshow-esque, circus freak show that I’m obsessed with.
Killer Karaoke‘s contestants consist of regular, everyday people who like to sing karaoke and will basically do anything to be on television. Little do they know that they may be shocked, dipped into a tub of snakes, covered in balloons while walking through cacti…all while singing the song. The main goal? To keep singing. And in some cases, that’s not such an easy task.
Take for example Natasha Paghunie, the young, adorable, fresh-faced girl in the video below. She sings the country hit, “Redneck Woman,” in the most uncomfortable of situations. Just watch for yourself. TRUST ME. Bonus if you hate snakes.
After watching that you can’t help but empathize with Natasha. I was crawling in my skin just watching it!
Steve-O’s Killer Karaoke premieres Friday, November 23 on truTV. Set your DVRs!
