'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.

NBC is rapidly becoming unwatchable.
The greatest "fear" is the thought of being forced to watch it's programming.
Too much homo-agenda propaganda.
Repulses "normal" viewers.
And yes,...homos are abnormal.

It is illegal to spit on a person, or for sick restaurant workers to put any bodily fluid into customer's food, so why do some people think it is okay to drink animal fluids?

Maybe the TMZ crew should drink it, then they might stop posting the photo of the donkey and the spew as the top daily article. Maybe it will rid them of their donkey obsession.

It doesn't take a hi IQ to figure out they just use the expensive stunt on another show. Or use more footage of that stunt so it takes over the time used with the donkey semen.

I think that if I was enough of an attention whore to guzzle down a mug of donkey jizz, I'd want everyone to see it. I mean, anything worth doing is worth doing on TV

$150k is chump change to the network. Heck, Charlie Sheen was making 2 million per episode on 2 1/2 men last year, so I think the network won't even blink at that amount of money.

I mean seriously... Harvey why do you let your staff put stupid stories like this. Why the obsession over donkey semen? If you would give the name of the person responsible, I would personally kick his ass.

I wonder why they ever brought this show back from cancellation. Wow, "we get people to risk their health by drinking donkey semen". I can imagine this shows main demographic.

Yeah, Donkey semen, not so much. So if Beastieality is against the law, then sipping on donkey semen should be that line where you cross least on television. Remember, children do stumble upon your show at night, and this is really just unesessary for those little eyes. Semen... Really? GROSS!!!!
