Akshay Kumar had been the charming host of COLORS' Fear Factor for the last two seasons, but the macho host will be missed in this season of the show. The first two seasons saw glamorous girls from all walks of life trying their hand at adventure. This season will have a change in concept, and is expected to rope in 13 cricketers from all cricketing nations. Hence, the channel was on a lookout for a glam girl this time to host the show.

And it is the gorgeous Priyanka Chopra who has been finalized to take over the mantle from Akshay Kumar.

According to our source, "Talks were on with Priyanka Chopra for some time, but now it is official. She will be replacing Akshay Kumar in this season's Fear Factor as host. Priyanka has the right mix of glamour and enthusiasm when it comes to athleticism. Her action packed stunt scenes in the movies Don and Drona have classified the actor as being one of the fittest in the Bollywood fraternity. So she will be the friend as well as guide for the 13 cricketers who will be fighting the battle this season. This also marks the small screen debut of Priyanka".

As per the buzz, Priyanka has been an avid follower of Fear Factor and thoroughly enjoys watching it. So she considers this as a big challenge that has come her way. The beauty of the big screen is eagerly looking forward to this show which will feature some big names from the cricketing field..

    Y cricketers???

    y cricketers will come in this stunt show???????, already they r getting injured playing in a domestic tounament (IPL),
    n by participating in this show thy might also get injured,
    it's ok cricketers also have a life , they also want 2 enjoy n secure their future by earning more money.

    But when time wil come 4 playing international cricket, they wil b injured n miss d matches.
    playing 4 d country shd b top most priority.

    Also if KKK-3 hve to take cricketers as participants thn thy shd take retired cricketers ( but that I think, it might not happen n then wil only chose d current players only, bcoz of fitness issues).

    HOPE that their respective boards dont gve permission 2 join this show

    BCCI r u listening or not???????? plz dont allow d current playing cricketers 2 join this show.
    N 4 PC- best of luck 4 her new show, n she will do well, she is a grt actress.
