'Fear Factor'

NBC Debating Donkey Semen ...

Episode in Jeopardy

1/28/2012 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0126_fearfactor_EX_TMZ_01
The world may never see "Fear Factor" contestants chugging donkey semen -- corporate heads at NBC and its parent company Comcast are having serious 11th hour talks about pulling the episode.

As TMZ first reported, contestants on the show -- shot last summer -- are challenged to drink a glass of donkey semen (and one of urine) ... and several of them did. The episode is scheduled to air Monday night.

According to our sources, some execs are getting cold feet, and discussions are ongoing this weekend about whether to air the episode. No word on their exact concerns, but an educated guess would be ... taste.

We've reached out to reps for NBC, Comcast, and Endemol -- the producers of FF ... so far, no word back.

Come on ppl. Is this really the worst thing that can be aired? If it's not your taste, then don't watch the show. Fear Factor has had stunts where people have eaten penises before....so now what comes out of them would suddenly be in bad taste?
Look, all the people who are bitching about this, no doubt watch shows and movies with murder, crime, and sexual debauchery. Murder is in good taste, but this isn't? Please.
Do me a favor and don't watch the show if you don't like it. Personally, although it grosses me out, I'm totally entertained by it. I plan on watching if they air it. I love the show.
Different strokes for different folks though. I don't care what you guys like...watch what you want to watch. You should feel the same about me. What I watch doesn't affect you if you don't watch it.
Bring it on Fear Factor!

Discussion are on-going? Why?!! Pull the plug on this stupid episode, NBC, and focus on restoring your network to the greatness that it once was.

A monkey could run NBC better than its current executives. It certainly couldn't do any worse.

I'm calling BS. There's no way they pull this with all the publicity.

I think NBC is playing the media.

NBC has been guzzling Democrat Party donkey semen for decades! Why is it a problem now?

These contestants who did this should sue the sh** out of NBC for doing this. $50K is nothing for being subjected to this. This is sub-human. Eating nasty living, larvae bugs is fine, but this way crosses the line.

Why did they do it in the first place if they had reservations about airing it? Seems to me IF the contestants who actually "drank" this disgusting crap find out that the execs fear the public backlash of the stunt...they may be inclined to "sue" as they realize (something they should have realized during the event) that this stunt was beyond the norm.

NBC all ready taped it. But they haven't broadcast it yet. Now NBC will decide to not show it, which means that whose people drank bull jism and cow piss for nothing......bummer.

The people who do these types of shows are straight STUPID! It's hard to believe that people will actuality drink urine,semen, eat bull balls, swim around in a pool of blood for 50 thousand that they have to split then pay taxes on!!! When it's all said and done it's pocket change to be a TV ginny pig for ratings.

the competition is between Reality TV execs to see who can be confirmed as the biggest douchebag in America.

1. Fear Factor
2. Mob Wives
3. Jersey Shore

Good! Don't air it! It is sick and twisted that anyone even promoted this into that show. Whomever came up with it or even went along with it is a sick individual. Including those desperate enough to drink it.

Donkey Semen should never be extracted for human consumption, it is sick anyone ever even thought up such a thing to do.

Says volumes of their lack or morals and lack of character.
