Fear Factor threatens to sue contestants who blabbed about drinking donkey s*men

This photo is from another disgusting challenge on Fear Factor, described below

I need to talk about this story finally after reading about it for a couple days. This is a follow-up and it’s just a gross as the original stories. Apparently on an recent taped episode of Fear Factor, contestants were made to drink donkey semen. This really happened, but the episode hasn’t aired and it never will thank God. Two of the contestants who participated in the show called in to a local radio station to discuss their reaction. One woman said that she understandably vomited (who wouldn’t?) and she described how it tasted. There aren’t enough exclamation points that I can put after “EWW”!!!! As a result, Fear Factor execs gave them a call and reminded them about their confidentiality agreements.

As if forcing contestants to drink donkey semen wasn’t bad enough, “Fear Factor” executives are apparently waging a campaign of fear against contestants.

In the wake of NBC’s decision to yank Monday night’s episode featuring the (poor) taste test, twin contestants Claire and Brynne Odioso gave an interview Tuesday morning with their hometown Tampa Bay radio’s “Cowhead Show” describing in detail what their mugs of donkey semen — complete with urine chasers — tasted like. (Bitter with “with hints of hay”, for those who are really curious.)

A few hours later, however, the twins were reminded in a phone call from a show representative that they had signed confidentiality agreements. The staffer warned them to stop talking to the media or else face legal reprisal, TMZ reported.

“We are disappointed because we wanted to share the experience with our friends and family,” Brynne Odioso told Patch.com

“We feel no animals were harmed during the stunt, and it is known that animal semen is consumed in parts of the world like Australia and New Zealand.”

The episode, entitled, “Hee Haw! Hee Haw!,” was replaced with a rerun on orders from NBC’s parent, Comcast, after news of the donkey semen stunt leaked on the Internet, to much disgust.

“Fear Factor” host Joe Rogan had hinted at what lay ahead in a December interview with The Daily News.

“I say, in the real world, in a healthy society, you’re not supposed to eat animal d—, but guess what, here you have to eat animal d— if you want to win $50,000,” Rogan said.

I had to google to see if it’s true that they actually drink semen in Australia and New Zealand. It’s not some long-standing cultural practice that I could find. All I found was this article from last year about how they served horse semen at a food festival as a “fad energy drink.” It sounded like a “dare” drink and a publicity stunt for the company that made it.

I’ve seen clips from Fear Factor, and they were either bungee jumping from high places or eating whole live bugs like spiders and scorpions. I guess they remove the stingers and ensure they’re “safe.”For $50,000 you could not get me to even smell this donkey stuff. Ok, maybe I would smell it, that’s good money. But I’m such a chicken sh*t I would never go on this show.

Modern humans have only been around for about 200,000 years. In comparison dinosaurs ruled the earth for 135 million years. We’re going to be a blip in history some day. When some future civilization looks at the legacy we’ve left, it’s not all going to be classical music and great literature. There’s so much more of this tasteless, disgusting throwaway reality crap that passes for entertainment. I guess I shouldn’t care about Fear Factor. Most of the programming on VH1 and MTV is much more disgusting and embarrassing to me as a member of the human race.

Here’s another “drink” that they had to consume on Fear Factor. This actually aired. It was “‘crappaccinos” made of pureed stinkbugs, flies and hornworms and topped with live, unblended bugs.” How is donkey sperm more disgusting than this?

This one is possibly the worst. “One partner dives into a tank of cow’s blood to retrieve cow hearts that their partner must then fling into a box with their mouth.” Who watches this?!

The header photo is described as “a meal of live roaches or live grasshoppers, with a side of rat-hair tortilla chips and live maggot and blood salsa.

    In some wya, I am strangely happy that at least one or two guys will finally get a taste of their own… medicine.

    The shit we women do, and for nothing.

  2. Asli says:

    This is just disgustng! I hope our legacy aren’t going to be excessive tanning, The Klan and crappy reality shows. I’d probably presume WE were the Neanderthals if I were looking at humans today in the future. Crappaccionos? Really? Just disgusting.

  3. Hanna says:

    Gross! Holy mother of God they’re insane! Donkey semen? Seriously?! I’d never do that for anything. Have you seen the size of that glass? INSANE!

  4. Donno says:

    I really like this show, but I have to state that the second stunt of these shows, such as eating various items, is just gross. I’m really debating watching this show from here on in if they decide to keep up this level of gross.
    I love the stunts and some of those I wish I could do just for fun, but come on, this eating bugs and drinking weird stuff must play havoc on your butt the next day.. lol

  6. Searching4grace says:

    Not only who watches this, but what kind of person comes UP with this stuff? This is gleefully and willingly torturing other people. Nope. Thanks, but nope.

  7. shawn says:

    This show is sick and shows just how truly and completely evil the freaks who run Hollywood are.

  8. neeki says:

    Unti this week I hadn’t even realise Fear Factor was still on! And I live in Australia and can vouch that no one comsumes animal semen as a drink! Very weird.

    • Lois says:


      ‘and it is known that animal semen is consumed in parts of the world like Australia and New Zealand.”

      Known by whom? Pulled that one out of your bum I think.

      Brynne Odioso you are an idiot, ranking first class.

      • AmyUSA says:

        LMAO – Agreed! I’ve lived in Australia my whole life and NO-ONE, ANYWHERE here drinks animal semen … seriously, where do people get these cr@p ideas from?? haha

        Also, that article is SO gross – I debated whether to read it or not (as I’m def not the strong stomach type!), sure enough, it’s making me gag just reading it haha – I could NOT watch that show 😉

      • Coral Sea says:

        I’m from New Zealand and I’ve never heard of this! However,there is an annual Wild Foods Festival in Hokitika where the brave and crazy pay to eat really disgusting things, earthworms, grubs, sheep testicles etc. It’s a sell-out every year!
        As for the Aussies, I wouldn’t put anything past them…

    • Abby says:

      @neeki- I think the show went off the air for a few years and now has came back. Why, I don’t know. I didn’t watch it the first time, and don’t plan on it now.

  9. Cathy says:

    You couldn’t pay me enough money to watch that show, must less consume anything they put out to eat. That’s just gross. It’s amazing the stupid things people will do for a buck.

  10. Mac says:

    When is the Celebrity Fear Factor episode airing?

  11. RhymesWithSilver says:

    Her name is “Odioso”?! How appropriate!

  12. Snowflake says:

    I love watching fear factor. I couldn’t do what the contestants do though

  13. Shelly says:

    I can’t bear to watch this show. I saw one episode years ago involving rats nibbling on people in the dark in some kind of enclosed box, and I was traumatized for weeks after.

    • Rio says:

      Jesus, that’s some Orwellian sh!t right there.

      No, I take that back. Orwell had at least a little faith in humanity.

  14. Feebee says:

    As a New Zealander I have to confirm that drinking animal semen is a NO. We do have a Wildfoods festival and I checked out the website and can confirm they did (listed as horse protein shots) but imagine it’s more as a publicity stunt but ordinarily it’s more stuff that is every day (scallops), wild (boar), a little different (snails) and stuff you’d see in Asian street stalls, fried crickets and battered beetles and ick stuff like that.

    I think the contestant may have a few brain cells missing. I’m only guessing but if that’s what the show told her in order for her feel better about drinking it then she’ll believe anything.

    • Camille (The original) says:

      Thank you for posting this!

      As a fellow Kiwi (I’m also from New Zealand), I was mortified at them saying that this is done here, it bloody well is NOT done here.

      What an idiot that person was to believe it.

  15. layla says:

    The producers of this show really need to look up the definition of ‘fear’.

    Donkey semen, cows blood etc is many things…. Gross, disgusting, foul, repugnant but these reactions are anything but fear.

    It’s the difference in the reaction to having to eat a spider vs letting a spider crawl all over you. One produces disgust and a gag reflex, the other (in most people) actually produces a fear reaction.

    Oh. And as an Australian… I have NEVER heard if anyone consuming Donkey semen!

  16. Sassy says:

    I have a really strong stomach and am not normally squeamish but this? MAKES ME ALMOST FAINT WITH DISGUST. I can’t even imagine drinking donkey semen without gagging. *shudder*

  17. aenflex says:

    show used to be cool, when it focused on doing things that were scary. now it’s just jackass with prizes. and rogen is a douchebag too.

  18. Listerino says:

    I’m Australian and I also can assure everyone here that we do NOT drink animal semen. Highly insulted anyone would suggest we would do that sort of thing. So gross. This whole show is so gross. But if someone is desperate enough for money to drink it then why not let us watch in horrified amusement.
    I myself would not do it for a billion dollars. No way.

    • Grandizer says:

      I am sure they were NEVER implying that the Aussies that live in penthouses and on the beach are the ones dropping in at the local foodmart and picking up cans of donkey semen for consumption.
      But last I looked, there is a portion of the country where aboriginals live and thrive and they eat things that you do not.

  19. TrolleyDolly says:

    Humans can die from anaphylactic shock from animal semen. Google it.

  20. ann h says:

    This show really needs to be yanked from t.v. What’s next? Somebody taking a s**t and the other person eating it I suppose.

  21. Beatriz says:

    Dear lord, this is disgusting, I gagged several times just by reading about it!

  22. Marianne says:

    The “eating” challenges are always disgusting, and I dont think I could eat it just for $50,000 (Especially since there is no guarantee you’ll win anyway) Sometimes, they dont have gross eating challenges…sometimes, its things like lying in snakes, or having your head in a bucket of bugs or something. It’s still creepy…but not really as disgusting.

  23. Brannie says:

    What WON’T people do for money. UGH.

  24. sam says:

    I just don’t get it. Why!?!?!

  25. Belle Epoch says:

    Here’s what I want to know.

    The show was taped. Somebody drank this stuff. Were they awarded their $50,000? Or only if the show airs? Can you imagine degrading yourself to that point – and NOT getting the payoff?

    This trick generated huge publicity for the show, but I’m not sure it’s the kind of publicity they want. In my universe, I would cancel this bottom feeding idiot fest and throw Joe Rogan in the tub of cow blood.

  26. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    I just don’t understand who watches this show? What is the appeal of seeing people eat gross shit and vomit?

  27. Claire says:

    I can’t help but wonder who and how did they get the donkey semen in the first place?

  28. Trashaddict says:

    I have to imagine there may be some potential risk for disease when you expose yourself to other animals’ raw bodily fluids. Do the producers know if this is even safe? I hope these contestants have not incurred some big-time serious health risks.
