It's not known exactly how much money Facebook paid for the content. Many people are happy to watch short clips on the social network, but it's too early to say whether or not many people are willing to head to Facebook for professional programming instead of heading to YouTube or subscribing to the likes of Amazon and Netflix. In the first episode, the man known as "Beast Mode" will take race auto driving lessons and ruin the tires of his vehicle.

The reality show will start streaming this month, consisting of eight 10 to 15-minute episodes.

"We think we have a big hit on our hands", Bleacher Report president Rory Brown told Reuters. Once the show's exclusive Facebook window is up, Bleacher Report will retain its distribution rights.
