'Fear Factor' Staffers

Killing Donkey Semen Episode

Was an Expensive Mistake

2/4/2012 2:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0126-fearfactor-ex-tmz-01"Fear Factor" staffers aren't just pissed NBC execs pulled the plug on their donkey semen episode because it's hilarious -- they're pissed because ANOTHER stunt on the show was extremely expensive to stage ... and now it's going to waste.

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ, in addition to the donkey semen stunt -- contestants had to jump a car through a moving train ... a stunt that cost roughly $150,000 to put together ... and now, will never see the light of day.

On top of the train disappointment -- we're told some staffers were baffled by NBC's decision to yank the episode ... because the semen challenge was "hands down the nastiest concept" out of the bunch of other stunts that were killed BEFORE coming to fruition.

As one source put it, "There's lots of other gross stuff, but how do you top donkey semen?" A good question.

This is supposed to be f**king entertainment??? I'm done with TV period! Just disconnected my service. I'm not paying for the sh*t thats on TV today, especially a show that wants its contestants to drink donkey urine and semen. That is the f**king sickest GD thing I have ever heard of. SCREW the cable & satellite TV companies and Go To Hell CBS, NBC, ABC and all the rest. The people running these networks are pathetic, money hungry, sick in the f-ing head jews, no doubt, who are only in it for the money. Well, Im done with all you c**ksuckers! F**KOFF.

How many think this is event is "hilarious"? Gross/repulsive is not so much with the entertaining.

"the semen challenge was "hands down the nastiest concept" out of the bunch of other stunts that were killed BEFORE coming to fruition." What does the train thing have to do with the D.S.? It/D.S.Was the nastiest, the final filming and focus group reactions told the tale of it being vomit worthy. ...So, that's why it didn't air. "Lot's of gross stuff"...what is trying to be topped? Doesn't that mean producers would be happy not to have to meet an increasingly disgusting/shocking standard? What does that have to do with it? This is oddly vague reporting. Not sure what the writer is saying.

The Fear Factor producers should be fired! They are sick for even thinking this is funny or even promoting it.

Bottom Line - sick individuals do sick things, they act like they are the producers for that MTV show Jack@ss, sick.

The Fear Factor producers should be tested for drugs. They had to be smoking something to come up with something so degrading. No NORMAL human would ever think this was funny or okay to drink an animal's pee or an animal's ejaculation.

PLEASE stop reporting on this. It is silly and gross. Plus, I HATE the picture it grosses me out. No one really cares about this stupid show or the silly people that would subject themselves to these ridiculous types of stunts. I would seriously rather read about Kim Kardashian than this and I can't STAND the Kardashians.

How in the hell do these network get their jobs? Nepotism or something because it can't be because they're creative or have common sense.
