MTV2 TO PREMIERE NEW SERIES "numbNuts" FOLLOWING SEASON SEVEN PREMIERE OF "BELLATOR FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIPS" ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28

New York, NY (September 24, 2012) - MTV2, MTV's sibling network, today announced the debut of "Fear Factor" producer David A. Hurwitz's new series "numbNuts," a high octane, hilarious, adrenaline-fueled stunt competition game-show series, on Friday, September 28, 2012 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, immediately following the season seven premiere of the "Bellator Fighting Championships" at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV2. The series is executive produced by Hurwitz ("Fear Factor," "Stars Earn Stripes") and directed by Rupert Thompson ("Fear Factor," "Wipeout," "Stars Earn Stripes").

Pitting Internet-contestant's stunt mishaps against three web-celebrity Stunt Masters - Crazy Mike, The Horse and Victor Lopez - the series will feature comedian and host Jeff Dye overseeing the two teams battling it out to see who can better perform steroid-injected versions of the stunts. With bodies crashing, sliding, colliding, and flying through the air- "numbNuts" is a win big or lose hard competition that hilariously walks the line between stupidity and bravery.

Earlier that night, MTV2 brings back the toughest tournament in sports as "Bellator Fighting Championships" embarks on its seventh season of world-class Mixed Martial Arts fighting with 12-weeks of eight-man tournaments featuring some of the most dynamic fighters in the world. This season will feature Bantamweight (135 pounds), Lightweight (155 pounds), Welterweight (170 pounds), Heavyweight (206+) tournaments with the victor receiving $100,000 and a guaranteed opportunity to fight for the Bellator World Title in their respective weight classes.

"numbNuts" Cast Bios:

About Jeff Dye: Jeff Dye is an extremely talented comedian/actor/host who hosts two series for MTV - "numbNuts" and "Money From Strangers." Jeff did so well at the TBS Comedy Festival in Chicago and COMEDY CENTRAL'S "Live at Gotham" that he got his very own half-hour comedy special titled "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents Jeff Dye" that aired last year.

Jeff gained national attention when he was a finalist on NBC's Emmy nominated series LAST COMIC STANDING and then performed in a 50 city tour with the other top vote getters. He previously won the Giggles 10th Annual Laff-Off in his native Seattle, and was selected to perform at the prestigious JUST FOR LAUGHS FESTIVAL in Montreal. Currently, he is a recurring on ABC's hit show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," now in its 9th season.

About Crazy Mike: As a five year old he was flying off furniture in his New Jersey home and his mother actually gave him the nickname CRAZY MIKE. Wrestling and dirt bikes were young Crazy Mike's past time, and as he got older he got even crazier. Graduating to daredevil status, Crazy Mike started jumping off roofs and having friends video tape his exploits and now has hundreds of clips on the internet seen by millions of web junkies. As a result of his craziness, Mike has suffered a concussion, broken 3 bones in his face, busted both his knee and his foot... and that was all in just one single stupid stunt. This adrenaline junkie plans to have arthritis throughout his body by the time he's 30...

About The Horse: Known as "The King of the Nutshots," The Horse hails from Harrisburg PA, where he started videotaping his lunacy by age 11. Like many other kids, Horse started with gymnastics and skateboarding, but quickly grew the "urge to do something most others weren't willing to do." And so the handrail nutshot was born... leading Horse to become a "BALL" pounding specialist with over 35 million hits of his videos online across more than 100 different sites and recent television appearances in the top 48 of "America's Got Talent" season seven, and as a 2-time competitor on "American Ninja Warrior."

Horse claims his funniest moments are when he's in so much pain that he actually cries. Somehow through all the nutshots, Horse has fathered Raiden and new baby Eevee and uses his daughters as motivation to take his pain to new levels.

About Victor Lopez:

Victor was dropped on his head when he was a baby and has been doing stunts ever since. A life's worth of gymnastics soon turned Victor toward a new craze called free-running and he immediately made his presence felt. Victor is now the top ranked American and 2nd in the World in free-running. He is well on his way to achieving his goal of being "Top Dog." His free-running videos are now all over the internet and have accumulated millions of views. In Victor's words, "competing is always fun, but to compete for money - priceless."

MTV2 targets young men with smart, funny and relevant content, including music, comedic and action-oriented original programming such as Guy Code, Nitro Circus Live, The DUB Magazine Project, 120 Minutes, Hip Hop Squares, and the dominant hip-hop franchise, Sucker Free.
