'Fear Factor'

Donkey Semen

Makes NBC Execs Hot

1/27/2012 6:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Donkey Semen and urine on fear factor
"Fear Factor" producers' plans to serve fresh glasses of donkey semen to contestants on the next episode had NBC execs so concerned ... they gave serious thought to killing the stunt, TMZ has learned.

Sources involved in the production tell us the stomach-churning stunt was shot last summer -- but NBC honchos were having a tough time swallowing this one as the air date approached.

We're told the challenge involved teams of twins drinking the full glass of donkey semen -- with a glass of urine thrown in for good measure. Contestants had to drain both glasses in order to move on to the next round.

Our sources say NBC execs had multiple pow-wows in the months after the stunt was shot ... but eventually gave FF producers the thumbs up.

Calls to NBC were not immediately returned.

The episode airs this coming Monday -- and yes, we're told multiple contestants actually do (gulp) drink up.

So that's what they mean by donkey punch.

Is it any wonder NBC's ratings are so awful? The people who run it are beyond insane.

Fear factor just jumped a shark OVER the donkey!! So sad.. You know how they say it takes a perfect storm of bad decisions to bring down a commercial airliner? The same could be said for bringing donkey spunk swallowing to primetime network television//

Donkey semen is so low brow when compared to eating buffalo testicles, cow eye juice, cow intestines and a horse's rectum.
Wonder no more why NBC is in last place.

This just shows how low the big corporations will go to make money. Lets watch the CEO of Comcast complete this stunt. PEG ( Power ego and Greed) are the only considerations NBC has in mind.

It's time to shut it all down and start over. Why would anyone come up with such a disgusting idea for a TV show ?

The following e-mail was sent to NBC via http://www.nbc.com/contact/general/
=======================================

The following e-mail is intended for NBC Executives and the Producers of "Fear Factor"

Dear Sir or Madam:

I have recently learned from TMZ.com that an upcoming episode of "Fear Factor" features contestants drinking glasses of donkey semen and urine to continue their quest for the $50,000 prize. It's quite puzzling how no one associated with the show (producers, directors, etc) had the common sense to speak out against this segment. Making the contestants ingest these biological fluids is not only perverse, but arguably, a form of beastiality.

Of even greater concern is how NBC Executives debated whether or not to scrap the episode and ultimately have chosen to air it. NBC Executives have seen the segment and have decided that this what they want to broadcast as "Prime time" entertainment on their network. NBC Executives will not be able to use "Plausible Deniability" after the episode airs.

This kind of "stunt" should not be associated with a major US television network, especially one that has a long history of producing family entertainment.

Please forward this e-mail to NBC Executives and "Fear Factor" producers in the hope that someone with sensibility will step-up and pull this segment. They have the chance to be the "hero" instead of being a "jackass" (goat).

Sincerely,

namewithheld

This season they're really going overboard on the eating and drinking stunts. ****roaches they always did, now they throw in blood, maggots, grasshoppers, stinkbugs, horned worms and other nastiness (rat hair toast, ugh). What exactly does eating nasty **** have to do with fear? They aren't afraid to do it, they just disgusted by it!

I don't care how much money is involved, any guy who drinks it is automatically gay. AUTOMATICALLY.

HOW???!! I couldn't even handle the picture, then literally gagged while reading the story! I'll jump out of buildings and drive cars off ramps but I'm not swallowing bodily fluid of any kind.

You have to be a pretty pathetic person to do something like that for the kind of rewards that show gives. It is amazing what fame will make people do. I wouldn't even begin to consider doing that for anything less than a million dollars. And I don't mean for the chance at a million, I mean flat out I drink it and you plop a minimum of $1,000,000 cash on the table in front of me right then and there.
