Catch a sneak peek of 'House of Villains'

Before tensions flair and the drama unravels, take a sneak peek of what you can expect from the debut series. 

According to E!, "Each week the contestants compete in a battle-royale challenge that tests their physical, mental, and emotional strength. The winner of the challenge is safe from elimination and at the end of the week, one villain is sent home. It's the battle of the century as alliances are made, trusts are broken and the villains scheme their way to the top."

As if these 10 reality TV players haven't already caused enough damage, right?!

When will 'House of Villains' premiere?

We have a ways to go before House of Villains hits our screens on Thursday, October 12 at 10pm ET/PT on E! The debut "supersized" episode clocks in at a whopping 75 minutes, so you know things will get...interesting. This episode will also air simultaneously across Bravo, SYFY, and USA

Who is hosting 'House of Villains'? 

Our beloved Community comedian is assuming hosting duties. Given that Joel McHale has led Crime Scene Kitchen—which also has a $200,000 cash prize—it's safe to say he's a fan of competition. 

When speaking to ScreenRant about his current hosting duties and involvement with Klondike's "What Would You Do" Hometown Challenge, it seems that a role in a show like House of Villains would be a no-brainer for the funnyman. 

"When someone lays a challenge before me, or if I can be on top of that challenge, then I'm going to be yelling and screaming and jumping up and down," he told the outlet. "It's not a problem, but I've always been so overly competitive to the point where I need to take a break, but when something like this, a fun challenge, comes along, I'm like, "Yes, I would love to do that.'"

Let's just hope our "villains" don't end up creating an actual crime scene come October 12.
