LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- "Jackass" star Bam Margera is to serve as host of "Bam's Bad Ass Game Show," a half-hour U.S. competition series to premiere in 2014, TBS said.

The cable network announced Wednesday it has ordered six episodes of the show.

"Each week on 'Bam's Bad Ass Game Show,' competitors will vie for $10,000 by facing off against each other in incredibly demented, potentially dangerous and occasionally painful challenges, like answering trivia questions while dangling above a pool of trash-filled water or dropping a watermelon on a target after being shot out of a cannon," a synopsis said. "The loser of each challenge is eliminated until there's only one contestant left standing to take home the cash prize."
