'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.

I think the "boys" at TMZ like the photo of the Donkey Spew in a glass, a little too much.

The producers of fear factor are comparable to a pimp. Pimps engage prostitutes to do degrading acts for money. The producers are doing the same thing to people in the general public for money. Sad and disgusting!

Yep....Just sick. Plain and simple, sick. Who cares how much it cost. They were dumb eff's for doing it in the first place. No matter how indifferent and insensitive this world can get, I think there will always be that one thing that crosses the line...

Hey, you morons, pull your heads out of your bank books for a minute and give your heads a shake. Seriously, do you hear yourself? You are more concerned with money than you are about your own culture or humanity. You even left the donkey sperm and the donkey urine in the sun all day, so that your fellow-Americans who are going to drink it can pull in bigger laughs. You are so brainwashed and absent of intellect, I wouldn't pay you to watch a donkey.

"Fear Factor" is the expensive mistake. What a horrid little show it is and has always been.

Producers talk about "losing" $150-grand or so? What's it worth to all those people they had degrade their humanity by drinking beast of burden semen and piss? That would seem to not even have a price tag and yet producers moan about losing $150-grand for a stunt in which more people exchanged their lives and limbs potentially for some game show chump change? It all demonstrates what horrible people are associated with "Fear Factor", NBC and COMCAST which owns them all.

NBC should have aired it, as soon as they said what the stunt was, viewers could change the channel and stay and watch. So it is okay for them 6 years ago to show contestants eating various animal penises and testicles but not this? Really? Get over it...they should air it just to see how many viewers they get, bet it would be the MOST watched episode ever! And everyone who is against it, they would be watching too!
