Well. This is certainly one of the challenges that held up to the title of the series.
The return of the NBC series Fear Factor is already causing controversy, as we've reported, after the network yanked an episode that involved contestants forced to drink donkey spunk, but apparently, staffers on the series are furious, because the aforementioned challenge was linked to another in the episode that involved the risk-takers jumping a car through a moving train - and it cost them around $150,000!
Furthermore, some of the crew is baffled as to why NBC would pull "hands down the nastiest concept" out of a bunch of pitches that never even made it into the development stage, and as one source explains:
"There's lots of other gross stuff, but how do you top donkey semen?"
Well, if VOM-inducing nastiness is the line not to cross, then we can personally accept not being subjected to that on our TV screens!
But with the amount of publicity this is getting, you just KNOW that the episode will eventually find its way out there - one way or another!
