Drink­ing se­men is too vile for telly

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A SICKENING TV stunt in which game show con­tes­tants were forced to drink pints of don­key sperm has been pulled af­ter a wave of com­plaints.

The vile seg­ment, filmed for long-run­ning US dare­devil show Fear Fac­tor, was due to hit Amer­i­can TV screens this week.

It showed par­tic­i­pants be­ing urged to chug from jugs con­tain­ing don­key wee and se­men in stom­ach-churn­ing scenes sim­i­lar to the Bush­tucker Chal­lenges on ITV1’S I’m A Celebrity…get Me Out Of Here!

But chiefs at Yank broad­caster NBC say the footage will now never be shown.

NBC’S en­ter­tain­ment pres­i­dent Robert Green­blatt said in a state­ment: “I de­cided it wasn’t a seg­ment we should air.”

Even host Joe Ro­gan said the juice-guz­zling scenes were dif­fi­cult to watch.

He said: “It’s so over the top and ridicu­lous. When they told me, I re­ally thought they were jok­ing at first.”

Fear Fac­tor, hosted by Joe Ro­gan, hit UK screens back in 2004 when Sky 1 made a Bri­tish ver­sion, and a celebrity in­car­na­tion star­ring So­phie An­der­ton and Leilani Dowd­ing.
