'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.

Good riddance!    

I have a very strong stomach and watching people slurp down cricket and snail slurpees doesn't phase me in the least, but this is one episode I will happily tune out. Hell, some of the physical stunts they've actually look fun! This just looks beyond nasty. I can't believe this will actually air.

Be done with NBC and read a book. We can be better than this America. We ARE better than this, even if NBC sadly isn't. This is a sad and ugly image of our country going out across the world and it is pathetic. Everyone reading this needs to tell NBC to stop. Together, we could put an end to this trash. Ironically, this stuff is put out by the losers who pretend to be so caring about the environment, all while having no qualms whatsoever to polluting the airwaves. This is likely animal abuse as well. Speak out against this.

Dear Christ, that is completely disgusting. This plumbs new lows even for the brain dead reality genre. Disgraceful, gut turning and just plain horrible.

PETA should be attacking immediately. There is no way they could have obtained that much semen from those donkeys without sexually abusing them.

Why not human semen? Better yet, make the contestants work in NBC's news department.

This can't possibly true, can it? What's next, eating aborted human fetuses? Seriously. If this is true, then clearly there is absolutely no decency left in our media, including the formerly highly respected "big three" networks. In their desperatioin for ratings, they have whored themselves out. Perhaps 2012 is the end of humankind afterall....

This so-called show must be created by a bunch of nasty, adolescent boys, similar to the TMZ staff. I don't watch this show and never will. If you watch this show, I just have to ask, what's wrong with you? Is this the best your brains and emotions and handle? Disgusting doesn't even cover it.

What next - contestants sucking the pus from a carbuncle or eating a bowl of raccoon crap? How low can we go?

This is wrong at all levels. I haven't read all comments, but I'm pretty sure someone else must be thinking the same thing I do. This is some form of bestialism! How do you extract donkey's semen and prove that it's not bestialism??
