'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.

Topping "Donkey Semen" is that the question?? let me think, the only thing worse than being asked to chug down Donkey semen is "Having to endure Obama for any longer than the rest of this year, and his FAT Ass wife is the hay taste you heard about"

NBC had enough taste to cancel the episode, do you think TMZ could stop posting the picture of the jizz?

They've totally lost the gist of the show. Who thinks of things like this - someone in the sixth grade? As someone said before me, this is supposed to be 'FEAR' Factor, not Gross Factor. I'm glad I no longer watch this show.

That is the nastiest, grossest stunt ever concocted. I'm glad it was canned, and the people who put this episode together should drink it. Cheers!!

The "costly mistake" was this idea in the first place.

hi everybody, maybe i'm missing something but why on god's green earth would anyone with at least the last remnants of a brain WATCH this idiotic crap or any other of those so called "reality" shows. they are anything but "real". they are a cheap way for a network to fill airtime and as P.J. Barnum (?) stated: "there is a sucker born every minute". and watching this crap make you exactly that: a sucker!!

MISTAKE? HUGE. Expensive? TOUGH ****. Even the morons of the world draw the line of disgusting at some point. Take it in the ass like you should and don't do anything so disgusting again.

Believe me... the episode won't go to waste: Sooner or later, the episode will either air somewhere or be illegally uploaded somewhere. If NBC (?) was smart, they'd just sell the footage or air it (sell the unrated dvd?) and make money off of it before someone uploads it and we all download it for free. Regardless, if you saw jackass 3, the stunt is nothin' new anyway... Fear Factor will definitely be off the air soon... It's not "shock tv" anymore - especially if they try to get rid of the shock...

Please stop running this story. It's gross and picture is even grosser. I'm starting to avoid checking your site because I want to puke everytime I'm reminded of this. I know sophomoric boys love this kind of stuff, but please, put it to rest and give us the juicy celebrity gossip we love!
