I have never watched this show, or any other so-called “reality show.” I find them to be boring in concept and disingenuous in delivery, just from the clips and commercials I have seen promoting them. I now have a great reason to feel that never watching this show has been a good idea. Watch and see what you think.
This segment was deemed un-airable for American audiences, but the “Fear Factor” segment that featured contestants challenged to drink a glass of donkey semen and a glass of donkey urine recently aired on Danish television. Maybe Danes are not as sensitive, or maybe the powers that be just feel that this was worth showing.
The episode, “Hee Haw! Hee Haw!,” was initially scheduled to air on Jan. 30, before NBC executives decided to pull it at the last moment.
The show’s host, Joe Rogan, said of the stunt before it was scheduled to be aired, “The biggest example, I can’t tell you unfortunately because they haven’t even decided whether or not they’re gonna air it. It’s really that crazy,” Rogan explained.
“I got there and they told me what we were gonna do, and I just started laughing like, ‘There’s no way. That’s not really gonna happen. Wait, is that really gonna happen?’ I wish I could tell you. NBC’s still looking at the footage going, ‘Uhhhh, can we do that?’ There’s gonna be a lot of people that are going to be upset — it really is ridiculous.”
The stunt, which involves a woman drinking a 24-ounce glass of donkey semen while her twin sister downs a glass of donkey urine, was somehow cool with Danish television execs, who chose to air the episode.
Watch at your own risk.
