'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.

NBC will check with their Accounts and if the show will bring in more viewers and money,they'll keep the segment.

There is no validity in saying how this makes Americans stupid. The point of the contest is to try something that is pretty gross to us and actually consumed in other countries or cultures. Muslims shouldn't hate Americans for this behaviour, Allen Ridak. Some groups in Islam believe in curative properties of consuming camel urine. If it exists and doesn't kill us, some group of people somewhere will be eating it or rubbing it on themselves for one reason or another. Get your heads out of your asses, do some research, and move along.

@ the guy who said PETA should be all over this, I agree -BUT- Our laws dictate that certain jurisdictions of "farming" are allowed to collect semen from certain animals, usually this applies to *breeders*...I find the whole thing DISGUSTING, and think it's deplorable for any animals to be abused in such away, OR AT ALL!! THIS IS NOT ENTERTAINMENT, IT'S ABUSE! IF ONLY PEOPLE KNEW WHAT THESE ANIMALS WENT THROUGH, IM SURE NONE OF YOU WOULD BE OK WITH IT. (AND MOST OF YOU HAVE SHOWN YOUR DISTAIN THROUGH THE COMMENTS) So that's good, but people who think that the animals involved weren't put through hell, are sadly mistaken.

They should replace the episode with Tear Gass and Shaved heads episode because that was the episode of last week but didn't aired.

NBC should be sued for approving such a vile stunt as this. There has to be some type of law violated here by subjecting people to such treatment regardless of the contestants signing wavers. This is the most vulgar and offensive thing that I have ever heard of being done. If any person in their right mind thought this would be ok they should be locked up.

Only the trashiest of people would even be on a show like Fear Factor. Others have enough self respect.

Considering this as entertainment is just wrong, where is the decency ? Is money and being on television more important? Look at the lives that you are influencing. As for Joe Rogan I liked him as the MC on"Fear Factor" and as a UFC announcer. Joe, please have a enough scene and decency not to be apart of this type of entertainment.
