Who Dares Wins is back?

According to tvgameshows.net

GSN is pulling Who Dares Wins, the Australian Fear Factor-style game, out of the mothballs to replace Funny Money Wednesdays at 11:30 p.m. (ET)

Am I the only one who thinks that GSN is taking a really bad risk here?  Last time I checked, this would be the third time that GSN is un-burying this show from the moth balls, and putting it on the schedule.  If I recall correctly, the first two times didn't do so well.  So my question is... Why is GSN taking this show out of the vaults when the last two times on the schedule it completely gassed?

 Because I've had bowel movements that provided greater visual entertainment than Funny Money, and hey, they already paid for WDW.

Although I haven't seen any of your bowel movements as of yet, I guess I'll take your word for it. (Not saying that I would want to see your bowel movements as of late, or of any time.  Trust me, I most definately do not.)

Call me crazy, but I think that Pardo wasn't half bad.  It was the format that was god-awful.  Slightly mixed feelings about seeing it go, though.

Because unlike the last two times, WDW now fits in better with GSN's new reality-based focus.  Personally, I'm not surprised by its return.

Note to Chris: I fear you may be giving some networks ideas for new programming.  TMI!

I thought the contestant didn't automatically lose if he failed.  I remember one episode where he tried and failed, and they had Tania do it.  She succeeded, so no trip.

 Pardo was OK, but he needed to lay off the caffeine. The show had potential (then again, don't *all* game shows?), but it was horribly executed with unoriginal gameplay. It was like Make Me Laugh meets Hit Man meets Get the Picture, and a couple of other shows.

And no, I don't need to know which other shows Funny Money ripped off.

I watched it when it was on GSN awhile ago..and do agree that this is a better time for it to air..but I don't really care.
