Scared Famous is a horror reality television series hosted by Redman. It features ten cast members from various VH1 shows competing in horror-themed challenges inside a haunted house in Savannah, Georgia for a prize of up to $100,000 for their favorite charity.
Ten contestants move into a house haunted by two twins and various demonic forces in Savannah, Georgia, in order to win a prize of up to US$100,000 donated to a charity in their name. This prize is won by completing various "horror movie-inspired" Scream Team Challenges worth different amounts of money. Near the end of each episode, one celebrity is voted to be put up for elimination by the others as a "dead weight" and must compete against another contestant of their choice in the various "Devil Jeopardy" elimination challenges. The loser of this challenge is eliminated and "killed", until only one remains, receiving what they had earned in all of the Scream Team Challenges they had completed throughout the competition.
