Palm Beach Local to Appear on MTV's Fear Factor on June 13

Although big crowds, flying and dark places are known to make Paula Placido cringe, she is set to overcome her fears—in the national spotlight. 

Placido, who calls West Palm Beach her hometown, will appear on this week's episode of MTV's "Fear Factor," airing Tuesday, June 13 at 10 p.m. ET. 

MTV is refreshing the breakthrough series, which orginially aired in 2001, allowing a new generation to watch people face their worst nightmares. The remake series is hosted by hip-hop singer Ludacris. 

The new installment of the popular TV show will push contestants beyond their comfort zones and will force them to take action against some of their biggest stressors.

On the upcoming episode, “Once Bitten, Twice Trapped,” Placido and her teammate Jeremey Rosser, who is also originally from West Palm Beach, will face major challenges. The pair will be covered in Amazon creatures, forced to conquer a mental mousetrap game and dragged to the bottom of a deep water tank, all in the hopes of winning the $50,000 prize. 

Will Placido and Rosser be able to face their fears? Tune in June 13 at 10 p.m. on MTV to find out.
